Here are some. ..: Without further detail of the affected area and medical background, it's hard to offer an accurate assessment. At least, these sploches seem benign, non-urgent, and non- progressive. But for long term care, it's reasonable to get pro-evaluation and counseling so to decide if they're long-foreskin-related or not. If so, circumcision may be required. So, see urologist timely. ...Read more

Muscle pain?: If TMJ was a recent issue, you may have been overusing the jaw muscles to protect the joint. This can be on par with an intense muscle workout and as lactica acid builds they get very sore. Try taking Ibuprofen if you can for a few days. Stick with soft foods and apply alternating ice and heat to the area. If not getting better withing a day or 2, see your dentist about the problem. ...Read more

A person with a cold sore kissed me on the cheek. Should I wait a while before kissing my baby?

Cold sores - HSV-1: Fortunately the answer is 'no'. If you've never had a cold sore erupt on your lips/mouth area, then I highly doubt you're a risk to your baby. Occasionally people may harbor the virus, and no obvious lip lesion is there (did your mom/dad have this?) A kiss has to be on the lips/nose/eye where there is a mucous membrane rather than intact skin. So no, you didn't get the virus from person who kissed ...Read more
