I Prefer Cobb Salad: Quote: "Identifying Cobb angle is important since it is often the first objective indicator of a scoliosis. A curve is considered to be scoliosis at a Cobb angle of 10º or more. Any increase greater than 5º or 10º is considered a change – the number varies among studies. Scoliosis is considered mild at 10º-24º, moderate at 25º-50º and severe at >50º." [scoliosis3dc.

First Ice: First, apply ice to get out the heat. You could apply aloe vera, but the most effective treatment would be a prescription of silvadene (silver sulfadiazine). A proper dressing of silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) will not only be anti-bacterial, but will cool the burn pain. Perhaps even a little Hydrocortisone cream and advil from the store will help with the pain and inflammation. ...Read more

Not if...: If a thermometer is calibrated for rectal temperatures, then the 99 degrees is accurate and no adjustment is needed. If the thermometer is calibrated for oral or axillary temperatures, it might automatically add 1-2 degrees to what it senses, and thus display an incorrectly high reading (because it thinks it is in the mouth or armpit, when in fact you've put it in the rectum). ...Read more

My son (age 50years) cannot manage to stay in environs where the temperature exceeds about 75 degrees F. What sort of condition does this suggest?
My body temp. Is 35.5 degrees C (with regular checking), I often feel unwell/ill when it goes higher not more than 37 degrees C, what should I do??
Temperature variabil: When we say normal body temp is 37 or 98.6 that is the mean for a large population. There is variation within that population. That would be like thinking that every adult would be the same height. You clearly see the variability there. If human eyes were sensitive to the infrared spectrum you would clearly note the temp variability. Yours is lower than the mean so when it rises to 37 you have a f ...Read more
