Digestive problems also can cause halitosis (bad breath). Regular tooth brushing and flossing helps. Tobacco and alcohol affect breath negatively. Brush after all meals and snacks. Avoid drinks with sugar between meals as well. ...Read more

Hi. I am 19 week pregnant. I has a ultasound and the baby is not moving at all, and around the babyno watters, only hearbeat is still there. Why is that?

Hi. I am 19 week pregnant. I has a ultasound and the baby is not moving at all, and around the babyno watters, only hearbeat is still there. Why is that?

Need HighRisk OB: Many possible causes. Low movement is not worrying at 19 weeks, and the heartbeat is reassuring. I am worried about the low fluid. Was the sono done at your doctors? They may send you to a specialist. Also need to see if low fluid or no fluid. For no fluid, two most common causes are kidney problems in fetus or preterm rupture of membranes, both of which are not good. Low fluid needs following. ...Read more

I am 19 week pregnant wit my 3th child. I has a ultrasound and then baby is not moving at all, and around the baby no watter. Why is that? Is it danger

Could well be: Absence of fluid around the fetus is disturbing and could indicate a problem with the fetal kidneys (blockage, not formed), fetal heart failure, or leakage of fluid. If fluid is absent then the fetal lungs will not develop properly and there can be problems with muscular development. A repeat ultrasound will be needed to see if there are conditions that can be treated. ...Read more

Can I eat a 4 day old meat pizza been wraped up in new 2450 pound fridge and been heated up for 3 minutes in a 1000 watt microwave is it safe?

I do the same thing: You remind me of me. If the pizza has no odor, no discoloration, no mold like entity on it, and when you taste it, has no sour/bitter or musty odor and taste, then it is usually ok. Most people would not eat it, but I do. Hahaha, sometimes our being too clean in the us has caused us to lose much of our immunity. Still do things with caution, if unsure, don't do it. ...Read more

2, 5 y.o. boy had loose stools, 2 per day (6 bristol scale) for 2 weeks, no other symptoms. Warm weather, he drink much watter than usual. It is normal?

Normal variation: Since your child is acting well, the stools that you observe could be from a change in diet or from an increase in water as you describe and especially if there was an increase in juice or sweetened beverages. If there is fever, cramping, abdominal pain, or blood in stools, further assessment would be recommended. ...Read more

Got Tragus (cartalige) pierced a week ago. Using a 50% salt watter / 50% hydrogen peroxide solution. Piercing/ear is very itchy. Normal? Any advice?

Stop peroxide: Hydrogen peroxide is not beneficial for any wound and tends to be irritating. Aquaphor or vaseline is OK. Water (a shower) is good for it. Leave it alone, do not spin it. Avoid alcohol, iodine, bacitracin, neosporin as these are never useful on existing wounds and are irritating or sensitizing. If the stud is not surgical steel or 14k gold you may be reacting with allergy to nickel sulfate. ...Read more
