My baby has veiny mottled skin from the face down doctors have told me it's immature circulation when will this go away?

My baby has veiny mottled skin from the face down doctors have told me it's immature circulation when will this go away?

Up to 6 months: I've seen kids with this condition where it takes even 6 months for them to develop the control of circulation. The good thing is despite it looking really nasty at times when your child is pale and mottled, it is really harmless to the baby. Attend all your well child checks so pediatrician can have ongoing assessment of baby's entire cardiac system. ...Read more

I have a very bad lump on my face and doctor gave me erythromycin as its a skin infection. A friend said it could be my partners sperm being dirty?

I have a very bad lump on my face and doctor gave me erythromycin as its a skin infection. A friend said it could be my partners sperm being dirty?

Not from sperm: I'm assuming this lump on your face is an infection, which is why your doctor gave you an antibiotic to use. It is a pretty far-fetched idea that you could have an infection on your face because of "dirty" sperm. Sperm is not dirty. It's possible your partner could have an std (syphilis) and that it spread to your face by direct contact, but that is not at the top of the list of possibilities. ...Read more
