From last 3 days I feel heavy headed and dizziness after taking bath why is this happening?

Consult our docor: At your young age, it is likely not to be a serious problem, but it is worth an exam. Your circulation may be involved and more than brief soaks in hot water can alter blood pressure causing such effects. So, have a good exam and tell them about this plus anything else odd. Best wishes. ...Read more

I was taking my 8 month baby a bath wen I notice a squishy bump on the side of her head wen I touch it or press on it she won't cry or bother her?

See pediatrician: It is difficult to diagnose the bump without examining it. Because it isn't painful, most likely it isn't an acute infection. It may be a cyst or a lymph node. Please make an appointment with your pediatrician to evaluate your baby. Most likely it is nothing to worry about. Be well! ...Read more

When I pull my foreskin back in the bath when its softed it ok till I get hard and my head got purple and feels like it burning any anwsers?

When I pull my foreskin back in the bath when its softed it ok till I get hard and my head got purple and feels like it burning any anwsers?

Maybe phimosis?: You may have a condition called phimosis--the foreskin is too tight forming a ring around the head (glans penis) during an erection. Because it isa too tight, blood does not circulate normally and thus can cause symptoms you mentioned. This is treatable. I recommend seeing doc for eval.
Good luck. ...Read more

My son is 6 years old. He scratches his self all day long from head to foot he take bath and still be scratching and when he scratched he leave whips.

Eczema: Typically, this story is due to eczema, also called atopic dermatitis. Usually the skin seems somewhat dry. Skin moisturizers are an important part of the therapy. Sometimes, steroid creams are also necessary. Limiting exposure to water and soaps helps by decreasing one of the causes of the dry skin. Antihistamines may help with the itching. See your pediatrician for help and advice. ...Read more

If I have a shower I have no problems. If I have a bath, after 10 min, my head itches very strong. Why? Is it a symptom of dermatitis seborroic?

If I have a shower I have no problems. If I have a bath, after 10 min, my head itches very strong. Why? Is it a symptom of dermatitis seborroic?

?: I can't think of a mechanism for this since showering would involve your scalp but bathing likely not. There is a condition known as cholinergic urticaria in which intensely itchy red bumps would develop after a rise in core body temperature, but this does not fit your picture. It is also not suggestive of seborrhea. Suggest you see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Vertigo: You describe symptoms of vertigo. This can be from decreased blood flow to the balance center of the brain or to a disorder in the ears. If it is temporary and very directly related to the wet head, it may be a vagal reaction that causes decrease in output of the heart that is temporary and benign. Be sure he lies down, dries off, before getting up and running around. He needs a good checkup. ...Read more

My hair is falling down when I take bath or applying oil on head. How to stop this. Is there any problem of applying shampoo while taking bath.

Hair loss: You should go to the doctor for bloodwork to evaluate your hair loss. As long as you rinse off, there is no real issue with applying shampoo while bathing. I wouldn't sit in a dirty tub though, it is not great for your private parts. ...Read more

Should I take head bath daily if using minoxidil. If so, which shampoo is good?

Should I take head bath daily if using minoxidil. If so, which shampoo is good?

Probably not: Unless your hair becomes dirty or you've been perspiring a lot. Most specialists recommend shampooing hair 2-3 times per week instead of daily if possible if you are losing hair excessively. Over shampooing can dry the scalp. Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo has helped some with hair loss also. Biotin supplements too. If your hair loss is patchy, you should see your Dr to rule out other causes. ...Read more

My 8mo baby takes a bath sitting, and when I rinse, I pour water from her head. Is it fine? Wont the water get inside her ears?

Won't hurt...: If you are concerned, you should help minimize getting water in her ear by shielding it and pouring the water more on that side of her head, and then do the same thing on the opposite side of her head protecting her other ear. Even if she gets some water in her ear, it will eventually drain out and dry. ...Read more

A 1yr old that has puss filled sacks right under skin below head of penis on bottom side. Notice when I bathed him help please I'm so scared?

Needs evaluation: This may reflect an infection (such as balanitis), which may sometimes develop as a result of hygiene issues, because this is a difficult area to keep clean. In any event, this problem should be evaluated by a pediatrician as abscesses (collections of pus) typically require antibiotics and may require incision and drainage to prevent progression and to encourage proper healing. ...Read more

My son has a red ring around the head of his penis. I noticed it at bath time. I bought a brand of diapers I haven't used in a while but I don't know?

Probably normal: A darkened purple/red ring at the far edge of the glans (spear tip) is normal. You likely never noticed it before. If you think it's a change bring it up at your next office visit. I can't see that diapers had anything to do with it. ...Read more

I bumped my head on the bath tub and I wasn't taken to the hospital. I have a prob with my memory, is my brain damaged?

Not likely: No individual opinion can be offered - but if it was just a bump and there were no associated problems like loss or alteration or consciousness, nausea, vomiting, headache, visual disturbance, diziness or amnesia generally this would not be considered a brain injury. Severity of injury and concussion is associated with lower or higher risk. But, seek evaluation for memory problems. ...Read more
