I work in a fast food place what can I do to stop my face from bumping?

Bumping Face: It's very common to get "bumps: -- actually acne -- from working in fast food places because many of the greases and oils get on your face while working in that atmosphere. Get some wipes and wipe you face ever hour or so to get rid of the oils and greases that are plugging up the oil glands in your skin.

I keep getting bitten by something, mainly my arms is there anything i can do to stop this. I work in a kitchen.

Not a bite?: Assuming you are finding red spots on your arm with a little bit of itching/discharge it may not be from an insect. Kitchen work hot/sweaty sometimes and if you are around frying you may have a skin infection of the hair glands - folliculits. As you are in the food industry I would encourage you to have an MD look at this to be sure what it is so you don't accidentally be a risk to your patrons. ...Read more

What can I do to stop my ears from itching. Sinus pills not helping fast enough. Can I put something in them so I can stop digging in them?

Itchy ears: Itchy ears this time of year could be an indication of environmental allergy. You do not mention what the sinus pill is. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) would act quickly if this is the cause, but may be sedating. Be sure to read labels of otc meds for any contraindications. If this works, then try Zyrtec for a longer acting and less sedating effect. ...Read more

Sounds like tics: Random, uncontrollable and habitual muscle movements are called tic disorders. When they are accompanied by vocal noises (grunting, humming, words or even repetitive phrases) it is termed tourette's disorder. Sometimes obsessive compulsive disorder folks have lesser but similar behavior. Psychiatric evaluation would be the best way to sort out what is going on and there is treatment for it. ...Read more

How can i reduce my legs' hair? i've got a lot of hair on my legs and i want to reduce it not to shave it all. I'd like you to give me a solution plz.

Laser: The only permanent way to get rid of your leg hair is to have laser treatments to stop hair growth-either an at home model or treatments at a doctor's office, which are costly and can be uncomfortable. Otherwise, you could try cream depilatories or waxing- either in a salon or at home, but these still require repeated uses and upkeep like shaving. ...Read more

Hello? My Eyebrows were shaved half off by my sister... and it is so embarrasing at school, i cry when ever i see my self in the mirror, how long will it take to grow them back and where or what can i do/get to speed up that process?

Hello? My Eyebrows were shaved half off by my sister... and it is so embarrasing at school, i cry when ever i see my self in the mirror, how long will it take to grow them back and where or what can i do/get to speed up that process?

Varies, try evenness: If by "half off" you mean that half of each eyebrow is completely missing, I recommend cutting off each eyebrow entirely, so that both grow in evenly. It will be much less noticeable than a half-eyebrow filling in gradually. As far as speeding up the process, there is nothing likely to help significantly. I would expect it to be much less noticeable in a few weeks, long before fully grown. ...Read more

The : The symptoms you describe are "near-syncope" and "syncope" these are concerning symptoms because they signify a sudden drop in blood pressure, which decreases the blood flow to your brain. It is important to figure out why this is happening to you. You might be anemic, it can happen from medications you are on, from not having adequate nutrition, from having a neurological disorder, and from many other conditions. It is very important to have a complete medical workup for your symptoms and i advise that you see a doctor for testing. ...Read more

When I try and do light work outs all my joints click a lot and can causes discomfort this having an affect on trying to get back into shape. Can't take any medication what can I do about this?

In the young and active, crackling sounds in joints are quite common. If you have significant pain/stiffness that is adversely affecting your life/work/sleep etc...Consult your doc for an evaluation. Good luck ...Read more
