What happens if someone is extremely short (4'6) because they were born with a vsd that may or may not have been completely closed, could they get ssdi?
No: You can earn a perfectly good living as a person of small stature. This is not a disabling condition and you can certainly get educated, learn a profession and support yourself at 4'6". Short stature has nothing to do with your mind not working right. Being of short stature is not a disability - only if you let it be in your mind. But this doesn't make you eligible for SSDI. ...Read more
Yes: If two people are kissing, they will share whatever bacteria are in their mouths and throats. For bacteria like the strep throat bacteria, the well person will usually get sick after catching strep from the sick one. With staph bacteria, the well person may not get sick because staph doesn't cause oral infections in everyone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My daughter might have a MRSA infection. After its treated and visibly gone, will it stay in her system?Like once you have MRSA,you have it forever?
Not forever.: We are all colonized by Staph and Strep bacteria. MRSA is a form of Staph that is resistant to Methacillin, and thus all penicillins given orally. I recommend that if you are getting recurrent skin infections with MRSA Staph, start taking "bleach bathes".. Just 1/4 cup of laundry bleach in a tub of bath water, soak for 15 minutes, then soap up and shower off. Repeat once a week for a while. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If a person who has genital herpes sits on my lap fully clothed while they do not have an outbreak can I contract it. If they touch my face and hair?
Herpes: I do not understand your misunderstanding. Herpes is only transmitted from infected skin to skin or infected saliva to skin. It is not transmitted through clothing. Yes, all people with herpes shed virus and are contagious at unpredictable and untestable times whether they have an outbreak or not. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If someone has herpes and it is not genital, and they do not have an outbreak at the time, can they have sex?
It depends...: ...on meaning of "not genital". If oral herpes (cold sores), there is little risk if no outbreak, and only by contact with the infected person's mouth. But if herpes due to HSV2 is near the genitals (e.g. anal, buttocks, etc), then it should be assumed the virus is often present in the genital area even without outbreaks. Transmission risk can be lowered by taking anti-herpes, e.g. valacyclovir. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you get MRSA from eating or drinking after someone?I have a relative who just found out they have this.Doc said its not airborne caused by kidneys
Maybe: Mrsa or methicillin resistant staph aureus is a antibiotic resistant bacteria. By definition it is more difficult to treat than a non resistant bacteria. A simple course of antibiotics will not treat the bacteria living on the skin. Some have recommended Mupirocin ointment to the nose in conjunction with chlorohexadine baths, however results for this have been mixed. Discuss with a doctor. ...Read more

How does a cold spread to others if the first person has no fever? My dr.'s nurse said if someone your around has a cold and has no fever it is not contagious.How come then when we are around a family member we catch the cold then?
Also if it start's out
A : A cold is a virus. The majority of adult and child upper respiratory infections are viruses. This is why antibiotics don't usually help, they don't fight virus. Not all colds will have fever. The most contagious period is often before cold symptoms or fever are noticed. The next most contagious time is during symptoms, when we all try to be careful not to spread the germs. Unfortunately, people think theyre not contagious once they feel better, or when the fever clears, but for several days, even then, you are contagious, just much less so. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why is it that some people have highly recurring outbreaks of herpes (2), while others only have a couple or never even have an outbreak/symptoms?
Stress is a factor: Stress increases the frequency of herpes outbreaks. By taking daily suppressive therapy you can prevent frequent outbreaks and prevent transmitting the virus to others. If you don't want to take medication, daily Lysine 500mg is helpful in suppressing herpes outbreaks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can i get hsv1 by sharing a hookah (same tip) with people who i later found out may be hsv1 positive? If so, how likely if they had no visible sores?
HSV-1: The herpes virus can occasionally be spread when there are no symptoms due to a phenomena known as viral shedding. It is possible for a person to carry the herpes virus without knowing that they have it, in fact, up to 80% of people who are infected with hsv-1 show no signs of the infection. So it is possible for a person to unwittingly transmit the infection to their partner. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
