Drank Water Bottle
Today at work I was spraying the duster spray and sprayed my whole water bottle on accident. I then drank the water bottle. Am I going to be okay?
? 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

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.

Could use your help docs! My cousin has glandular fever and I drank from the same water bottle as her will I get it?
Hard to say: Many adults had mono as kids when it was so mild it wasn't labeled. If you did, you are immune. It passes in saliva, so you may have been exposed, but it will takes weeks to a month or more before you would show signs. There is nothing you can do to stop it if you were exposed. ...Read more

Frequent morning nasuea but recently started drinking a lot of propel water drank 3 bottles before bed wokeup nasuea free what could that mean?
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

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

So why is it that when I drink from a water bottle all day and I don't go to the bathroom much, am I not drinking enough?
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: 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
