Could you tell me what happens when you leave head lice treatment in your head overnight?

Shampoo: The treatment for lice is usually a very strong shampoo that you then rinse out and comb out the nits/lice. I am not clear from your question what you used. Many people use olive oil and a shower cap over night rather than the rid shampoo because rid is so strong. Basically, shampoo your hair and do not reapply the rid or whichever brand you used for at least a week. ...Read more

I have a 3 yr old son, he wasn't surcumsised, when will the head on the penis start to come out? I'm not sure what to do or what's going on, when i wash him he really complains that it hurts not sure what to do.

I have a 3 yr old son, he wasn't surcumsised, when will the head on the penis start to come out? I'm not sure what to do or what's going on, when i wash him he really complains that it hurts not sure what to do.

Be gentle: It is normal for an uncircumcised boy to have "phimosis" trapping the head of the penis within the foreskin. Aggressively retracting the foreskin to force the glans out or tearing at the adhesions can cause significant pain and lingering problems including recurrent adhesions. If he only complains when it is "washed" then leave it alone. If he complains at other times, then see your md. ...Read more

How come i can have a orgasm with a vibrator and not my bf and he tries so hard and gets jealous because he can't do what the vibrator can?

How come i can have a orgasm with a vibrator and not my bf and he tries so hard and gets jealous because he can't do what the vibrator can?

Lay off the vibrator: You could have desensitized yourself to normal sex by using a vibrator too much. There is no way any guy can compete with 5000 vibrations per second. If that's not the case, you have to do the whole set-up: door locked, candles, music, foreplay, and sex. You may need to be on top. You may have to tell your man what to do. Lastly, the sad fact is that some men simply may not work for you. ...Read more

I'm scared because whenever I go outside my body itches will I die and can you tell me how I will be able to cure it before it gets worse thank you wh?

Allergist: Going outdoors with the resultant temperature change and/ or certain activities may release histamine or other substances that causes the itching reaction. Apparently you don't break out in a rash such as hives or angioedema. Taking a nonsedating antihistamine like claritin (loratadine) before you go out may prevent this reaction. An allergist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. ...Read more

If you wash your hands, avoid touching your face or any part of your head with your hands, get plenty of rest, keep yourself well hydrated, take Vit C, you still might get sick. In general, I have found by doing the above including using throat sprays, I have been able to keep my getting sick down to a bad ...Read more

Can you get HIV if you suck someones neck and they don't wash theyre and touch theyre next but u dint see semen on it but it taste funny?

Unlikely: Hiv lives and reproduces in blood and other body fluids. The following fluids can contain high levels of hiv: blood, semen, breast milk, vaginal fluids, rectal (anal) mucus. Other body fluids and waste products like feces, nasal fluid, saliva, sweat, tears, urine, or vomit don’t contain enough HIV to infect you, unless they have blood mixed in them and you have significant direct contact with them. ...Read more
