? Duster Spray?: Not clear what a Duster spray is? Disinfectant? A fragrance spray? Lysol? Something else? You need to tell us what chemicals if any are in the `duster` spray. I think it unlikely that this much exposure would hurt you, but not sure what you actually used. ...Read more

3 year old son found and drank from an old water bottle. Should I be concerned? If he was going to get sick when would he show symptoms and what type?

Contents of bottle: If the bottle contained water there should be no worries on your part. If you use old water bottles to store toxic substances then he could have ingested some. In North America the number for Poison Control Centers has been set up by the telephone companies as P-O-I-S-O-N-S so you don't have to frantically look it up. ...Read more

Relax: Non-human animals never drink "clean" water and do fine. Think about this, and be thankful for good health. Only a few fungi can make you sick and these aren't the ones in dirty kitchenware. ...Read more

Drank from a random water bottle by accident that wasn't mine. Bottle was not currently in use by anyone else. Now have a pimple like lump. Herpes?

Need an picture: A classic presentation for herpes would be described as an area of redness that develops into a cluster of tiny water blisters that eventually scab and dry up. Your description at this point does not sound classic. If you want to be sure, take serial photos and schedule and appointment with your doctor or dermatologist in the next few days. ...Read more

Could use your help docs! My cousin has glandular fever and I drank from the same water bottle as her will I get it?

Spread by saliva: Glandular fever, or "mono" is a viral disease spread through the saliva (kissing, sneezing / coughing, sharing drinking or eating utensils). A person can be contagious for at least 2 months. Symptoms include fever, severe fatigue, swollen glands in neck, sore throat. A common cause is epstein-barr virus (ebv). There is no cure, but a person usually has life-long immunity after an infection. ...Read more

Crap in a can--UGG!!: Did you read the ingredients? Water, artificial flavor and acid. Not only will too much rot your gut, but you'll destroy your teeth in the process. Not enough medically useful ingredients to do good; plenty of stuff to do bad. If you are working out. Drink water. Period. If I had to guess, i'd estimate that close to 80% of the dental disease I treat is from some marketed product to the-unaware. ...Read more

I drank water from a bottle which is already used by hiv infected person after like 5 seconds I did not saw a blood in it but if there's a blood in in

No risk, no worry: It is not possible to catch HIV from this kind of event, even if an HIV infected person drank from the bottle before you did. Have only safe sex and don't share drug injection equipment with other people, and you'll never get HIV. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

Unlikely risk: HIV would only be transfered if the infected individual had a positive viral count in his/her blood stream and had an open sore in the mouth. Then you would have to have also an open sore in your mouth or intestinal tract. Add these up and the risk is minimal. ...Read more

No Worries: The ONLY way you could get HIV this way is if there were visible blood on the bottle AND you had open, bleeding wounds on your lips or in your mouth. Further, your mouth & stomach acids would kill the virus and since the person most likely it taking meds to control the HIV, they would be considered to be unable to transmit the virus in any way. ...Read more

I can't urinate I have the urge to go and I just drank a bottle of water and still can't. How long should I wait before going to the ER?

ER time: Sorry to subject you to the ER, but if you cannot pee when you feel full, needing to pee, then it is time to get help. Sometimes getting in the shower can help, sometimes certain medications can help, but if you really can't pee then you need some more aggressive intervention. Waiting too long can damage the bladder and even the kidneys. ...Read more

I drank 1 bottle of water the whole day, had anixtey attack and went to ER and they said that I was dehydrated. Could that happen in one day.?

Dehydration?: You need about 600 cc of water a day to make up for insensible losses, due to sweating and respiratory losses. This amount may be more when you are in hot weather. If you were severly dehydrated, they would have given some fluids intravenously. Did this happen? If not, you may have been mildly dehyrdrated due to lack of water intake. Try to make sure to drink at least 2 quarts of water a day. ...Read more

I think I may have accidentally drank from the wrong water bottles what types of diseases can be transmitted through saliva (e.g. HiV or HBV)?

No risk, no worries: These infections are not transmitted by saliva and nobody ever gets HIV or HBV by sharing water bottles, glasses, utensils, or by kissing. This might risk colds, influenza, etc, but not blood borne infections. In fact, saliva kills HIV. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

Maybe (not). . .: You didn't mention how many bottles you consume nor the size of said water bottle. So, yes, it's possible that perhaps you're not drinking enough water. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/healthy-living/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/water/art-20044256 for a rough answer. I typically recommend drinking enough to make you void (pee) clear urine. ...Read more

Can you get HIV by drinking out of someone else's water bottle that might have had blood on the bottle top? Spat it out 1-2 mins later.

No: I would say you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning 3 times than catching HIV from blood on a bottle top. HIV virus cannot survive on environmental surfaces like plastic (or water). ...Read more

Can HIV be transmit trough a blood in drinking water bottle?

Can HIV be transmit trough a blood in drinking water bottle?

No: Please forgive me if your question leaves me puzzled and skeptical. Thankfully, oral ingestion turns out to be an extremely ineffective way of transmitting the virus. If you have obsessive thoughts that people are sneaking infectious blood into your food and drink, you need to talk about this with your personal physician. Our minds can play cruel tricks on us, and this can be treated. ...Read more
