Don't worry: If your child has a bite and is really bothered by it/itching it- or it looks infected - see a doctor. If you have an animal that could have fleas - get the animal treated. Do not be embarassed. Doctors see everything. We do not judge. We see lice and scabies and many things. We want to help. ...Read more

Man, u need to relax: There is no way one can determine from fetal US pictures if the baby does or doesn't resemble them.

I think I might have strep throat because I took a picture of the back of my throat and it looks like it but I'm also nauseous and have a bad headache?

Not specific: The tissues of your throat are the entering gateway for any germs and their response to them is not specific to strep. Most throat infections are viral but testing can easily sort them out. The symptoms you cite are common to both viral and strep. See a doc to decide which is present. ...Read more

At 3d shows, I notice the 3d effects maybe 2-3% of the time. The rest of the time, the picture looks the same with one or both eyes open. All the tests I've tried suggest stereoscopic vision/depth perception is fine. .. so why can't I see 3d?

Apparently about 10%: Of people can not see in 3D. Because humans have both eyes in front, the possibility of having them work together to create depth perception exists. The fusion in our brains of two slightly different pictures from each of our "cameras"/eyes gives the sense of three-dimensionality. Lazy eye and strabismus are conditions that interfere with eye coordination. It can be corrected, esp in children. ...Read more

Appearence: Please be more specific about what is concerning or what "others see". In general there is at times a slight difference between what we "look like " and a photograph, hence the term photogenic. May be due to lighting, pixels, etc. If you are concerned about your appearance consider contacting healthtap prime and speaking to a psychiatrist/therapist. Don't worry Good luck ...Read more

I've had a rash for about 6 months now. From pictures that I've seen it looks more like jock itch than anything else. But it never itchs

A few possibilities: Jock itch doesn't always itch. Erythrasma causes a similar looking rash; it requires antibiotics by mouth. If you are overweight or diabetic, it could be just irritation from moisture, yeast, or other superficial infection. Keep it clean and dry, and try a jock itch ointment if not yet done. If these don't work, see a doctor -- perhaps a dermatologist if your PCP hasn't been able to sort it out. ...Read more

Am I a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift? I feel like my butt is saggy and dropping further everyday. This not only makes me feel bad about my appearance but hurts my overall self-image. Can the Brazilian butt lift help me?

Am I a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift? I feel like my butt is saggy and dropping further everyday. This not only makes me feel bad about my appearance but hurts my overall self-image. Can the Brazilian butt lift help me?

Probably: A BBL might help you round out the sagging, but there's no way to really tell without a consultation. Be sure to see a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options.

So my mole itched the other day, I scratched it, and piece of it came off, now it looks like I got pac man on my shoulder. I have pics?
