What is the best treatment for wood mites bites?

Trombiculidae: Itching can be helped with topical corticosteroids and antihistamines as well as hot showers or baths. In cases of severe dermatitis or secondary infection with chigger bites, a doctor should be consulted.

 Blunt injury at  back right side of lower ribs from wood 3 days ago now little bit pain left but just wonder no passing of stool now 3  days also.

May I suggest a Virtual Visit on HealthTap? We could probably diagnose & treat if indicated. ...Read more

What are the health risks of outdoor wood smoke?

What are the health risks of outdoor wood smoke?

Not sure: I am not sure i understand your question exactly. However, having erections in the morning is normal for men. Also, a feeling of tiredness following ejaculation can be normal as well. If you have other questions, discussion with your physician's office may be necessary. ...Read more
