Is it ok to plastic wrap a rash (eg PUPPP) after applying flaxseed oil, eg legs, arms?

Is it ok to plastic wrap a rash (eg PUPPP) after applying flaxseed oil, eg legs, arms?

Probably ok: I am not sure it will be affective. PUPPP aka pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy is the most common dermatosis of pregnancy. Incidence 1/160 to 1/300 pregnancies. Presents as erythematous (red) papules within abdominal striae sparring umbilicus. Itchy. Treatment goal is relief to symptoms. Low mid potency topical corticosteroids and or nonsedating antihistamines. Baby ok. ...Read more

I saw that plastic glasses have bpa in them used to bite on arms of them not anymore will that cause cancer.

Unlikely but...: BPA has many negative effects on health. Even though you no longer bite on your glasses you are still likely exposed daily from other sources. BPA is just one of many common toxins that increase risk of cancer, but, while everyone has some BPA, few will get cancer from it. Minimize all toxic exposures and take steps to keep your immune system strong. See comments and http://tinyurl.com/jmth6lt ...Read more

I have a large lipoma on my upper left arm and the plastic surgeon wants to remove it with local anesthesia? can this be done without pain or risk?

Low risk: This is usually a pretty straightforward procedure. There could be some pain afterwards that should be easily controlled with OTC pain Meds. Sometimes there can be some skin numbness from superficial nerves being cut during the procedure. Localized skin infection is a possibility with any invasive procedure but overall the risks are very low. ...Read more

I have the implanon contraception in my arm (the plastic rod) my periods are very irregular and 2 days ago at night i had a very strong pain in the bottom of my stomach woke up the next day and have a clear stringy discharge with brown streaks in when i w

Implanon: Irregularly irregular periods are very common with the Implanon and Nexplanon contraceptives. The streaky brown discharge may be old blood that is just part of this irregular bleeding. Many things including colon cramping could have caused the pain 2 nights ago. If you aren't having any more pain, I don't believe you need to be concerned. See your doctor if more pain occurs. Hope this helps ...Read more

I had radial head plastic surgery  over 20 years ago. Now I am having much pain and stiffness when lifting, pulling or if i hold elbow in  bent posit?

Complex: After 20 years it is unlikely that there is any complication of the surgery. Now that being said, there is always an increased likelihood of arthritis in areas after trauma and repair. But there are many other possibilities. The best is to see a local surgeon or check with your primary care md who can then direct you further. ...Read more
