False Beliefs: I am sorry to have to be very frank with you but your assumption is incorrect and dangerous. 36 million humans have died of AIDS on the world in the past thirty years. Homosexuals only make up a part of this tragic figure. The other fallacy is that most people with access to good health care no longer get AIDS but have complete and effective suppression of the HIV virus and thus are not sick. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My grandaughter is mixed, 1/2 white, 1/2 African American. If I grease her hair, can she still get lice?
Yes: All you need to get/keep lice is be exposed,have a scalp. Having hair gives them something to hide in.Since they can selectively hold their breath up to 18 hours at a time, your oiling might work if the kid kept her head buried in grease/oil 24/7.Though sometimes offered as a home preventive treatment, this is a messy myth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why do guys who are bald have much rounder and pointer heads than guys who don't get bald? Is skull growth a contributor to male pattern baldness?
Science: I like this question and i like that you are asking it. But, as a physician i can guarantee you that your hypothesis, that all balding men have a specific head shape, is incorrect. Men who are balding or are bald have every normal shape of head as any other population. Head shape in no way is a contributor to male pattern baldness. Great question though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

So, anything getting in the way such as stress, fatigue, depression or a number of other medical conditions can be blamed. ...Read more

As long as babies stool is soft and his abdomen is not distended and he is feeding well, this situation is fine. To clarify, "pasty" is within the realm of soft for baby poops! Enjoy your baby! ...Read more
