Something pink felt and looked like flesh came out of my vagina. I would like to know if there something wrong with me. I did not pull anything.?

I don't think so: A gyn would really need to look at what you are describing in order to tell if it is normal or not. However, it is likely normal and simply some redundant vaginal "flesh" or part of your hymen that you are noticing. Contact your gyn for an examination. ...Read more

My vag has a bump that hurts. Also when i poop, something bleeds but im not sure what. Im concerned but I don't want to go to the doctor. abstinent.

Probably need exam: So as far as the painful bump this might be ingrown hair if more on the outside. If more on inside it might be a cyst. ( an example is a bartholin cyst). If you've ever been sexually active could be an infection( std). Blood in the stool can be due to many causes. Benign reasons would be a fissure ( split of skin), hemorrhoid, or from menstrual bleeding. Should be evaluated by doc to be sure. ...Read more

My 4 year old developed a small pea sized bump on his index finger. I tried poking it with a pin but it was just pure skin. He says it does not hurt. Also he could not feel when I poked it. Do you have any idea what it could be and what I can io n do to m

Without a photo...: hard to say. Posting a photo could help with the diagnosis. Also, how long has it been there? Any other bumps anywhere on him or on anyone else? Sounds like it could be a simple wart, especially since you say it's "pure skin." Unfortunately, there's not proven treatment for warts; most go away on their own over time. If it persists, looks infected (red, warm, painful), then go see your doc. ...Read more

Have a hymaroid but it don't hurt just feel like I have to go to the restroom what should I do?

Hemorroid: It is really important to try not to get hemorrhoids in the first place. Stay well hydrated (at least 8 - 8 ounces glasses of water per day). Try to get in 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day – get that fiber in. Stay physically active if possible. There are a number of over the counter laxatives that you can take to help pass retained fecal matter. ...Read more

When I say in my head something like "I'm gonna go touch that bench" or anything really, i have to do it. if i told, it bothers me. is that normal?

 When I say in my head something like "I'm gonna go touch that bench" or anything really, i have to do it. if i told, it bothers me. is that normal?

If I understand you.: You sound like you are describing an urge that will not go away until you give in to it. I'm not sure about the word 'random' - but if I get you, that's sometimes seen as OCD - obsessive compulsions. It's not always terrible, but it is not normal. As it bothers you, I recommend good OCD therapy - maybe w/ medication if needed. You can get it turned around, but be patient. Get help - it's there. ...Read more

I looked down at my underwear and there was something brown. And i mean brown. I have IBS so do I have leakage or something? What does this mean?

Skid marks or more?: Occasional incontinence of stool with fecal leakage is common, but loss of bowel control particularly without warning may signal a significant infection, inflammatory problem, maldigestive concern, anorectal or neurologic disorder. Sometimes, particularly in youths, the condition is behavioral. Often, anal manometry followed by biofeedback can be curative without surgery or medication. ...Read more

See your doctor: Your doctor can refer you to a urologist or urogynecologist who can help diagnose why you are having the symptoms of urinary hesitancy and incontinence and then formulate a treatment plan. While you are waiting, increase your frequency of voiding and treat constipation. Keep a voiding diary and record of amount and number or incontinence episodes.

Pediculosis : Pediculosis pubis is the name for crabs infesting the pubic area. Crabs (lice) often live in the pubic area or near the anus. The can also live in the hair or in your eye lashes. The lice’s saliva can cause a person to become very itchy, which is usually worse at night. There may be spots on the skin that look bluish gray where the lice has bitten.

Feels like I have a piece of something stuck. What I do? I tried blowing it and doesn't work.

Obstruction : It depends on where you think the thing is stuck. It sounds like maybe somewhere in an airway. You could see an ENT who could examine you and maybe use a nasoscope to check and retrieve it. Sometimes it feels like there's something stuck when the problem is swelling and inflammation. Someone will have to check to see what is causing your specific problem. ...Read more
