Trimmed toenails-noticed dark grey raised spot next to big toenail-slight pain, think it was ingrown nail. Trimmed off spot of skin, it bled a bit, blood went deep, and a tiny bit of clear liquid (pus?). Cleaned w/isop. alcohol + bandaid. Infected?

Probably: It does sound like an ingrown toenail, which usually does involve infection. The corner of the nail grows into the skin edge and burrows in causing infection. If it is mild, you can sometimes keep the nail edge elevated out of the skin and it can grow past the area. If that does not work, probably would be good to be seen. ...Read more

Could 1 litre of vodka 40% alcohol volume be lethal for an average size man?

Could 1 litre of vodka 40% alcohol volume be lethal for an average size man?

It could: Depending on how quickly you drink it. Every fall, there are unfortunately deaths, usually in high school or college age kids involved in fraternity/sorority initiations who chug even smaller amounts (a pint or even half pint), but drink it so quickly that blood alcohol levels go up very fast, resulting in respiratory depression, coma and death. Depends on your tolerance and health. Get help. ...Read more

Is it possible for 1 litre of vodka 40% alcohol volume to be lethal for an average size man?

Is it possible for 1 litre of vodka 40% alcohol volume to be lethal for an average size man?

Yes: If that person were alcohol naive, or if it were consumed very rapidly, or if there were other sedating cns-acting drugs on board, yes. Every fall during the unfortunate 'hazing' season at fraternties/sororoties many young people die of significantly less alcohol that that, because it is rapidly "chugged.'" most people fall asleep or throw up before alcohol will reach that toxic a level. ...Read more

My roommate thinks she is allergic to the histamines in alcohols like tequilla and vodka. Is this possible?

My roommate thinks she is allergic to the histamines in alcohols like tequilla and vodka. Is this possible?

Alcohol Allergy: Alcohol is a spontaneous mast cell degranulator. Your friend is probably not allergic, rather just has a side effect from ingestion of alcohol. Is it that she is drinking too much and then the reaction happens or is it with the first sip? Does it happen with all alcohols? Does it happen with different brands of vodka or tequila? ...Read more

Why is it bad to mix, alcohol with soda ( coca cola, sprite, etc.) coca cola with vodka? Or coca cola with rum?

Not good or bad: What's the legal drinking age in your part of canada? It's not good or bad to mix alcohol w/soda, but the carbonation gets the alcohol into your blood stream more quickly and can lead to more rapid intoxication? Be careful and don't drink and drive. ...Read more

I drank 3/4 a bottle of vodka on Saturday and took a drug and alcohol test Tuesday at 6pm. Will it come back clean?

I drank vodka shot 32% alcohol. Will I get alcohol poisioning ? I'm a regular drinker. Not alcoholic

I drank vodka shot 32% alcohol. Will I get alcohol poisioning ? I'm a regular drinker.  Not alcoholic

Vodka shot: This shot of vodka can definitely impair you and can harm. Given that you are a regular drinker, your liver may clear the ethanol faster. A person who is small can indeed be harmed. Friendly advice, now that you have tried, commit to abstain -- be an example and model to friends. Say no more - you protect and preserve yourself / and you truly may save a friend or acquaintence. Do good. ...Read more

I would like rubbing alcohol to do a newspaper design on my nails but I have none so can I use normal alcohol like vodka or something?

I would like rubbing alcohol to do a newspaper design on my nails but I have none so can I use normal alcohol like vodka or something?

I have no idea: I really think you need to direct this question to a cosmetologist or someone into crafts, rather than a physician who deals with people drinking alcohol, and not decorating with it. Isopropyl alcohol is pretty easy to come by, particularly in boston. Any pharmacy or supermarket will have it on the shelves. Do you want your nails to smell like vodka? ...Read more

If i had 3 cups of vodka straight, how long will it take to leave my system? Will it show up in a blood alcohol test?

24-48 hours & YES!: 3 cups of vodka is about 24 shots - or 24 drinks and it takes roughly 1-2 hours for a drink to clear the averge persons body or longer for females. 3 cups of vodka at one time would most likely kill you or at least take you to the hospital with alcohol poisining & a pumping of your stomach. Don't do it! ...Read more

Meningiococcemia : Yes it is a concern if that person has known meningococcal disease you should be seen immediately. Otherwise it is spread person to person kissing breathing and close contact drink sharing but one cannot obsess.
