My mom have some small blad parts in her head which have few white hair.is it normal?

This is not normal: Bald spots with white hair growth is usually associated with a condition called alopecia areata. Usually the hair doesn't turn white, but this can definitely happen. Vitiligo is another condition that can cause spots to grow with white hair but it's not usually associated with balding. I recommend that she get evaluated by a dermatologist. ...Read more

Mom sometimes gets a painfull sensation in her hand little finger. It looks like a visible clot, the finger goes numb. It gets normal later.Problem?

Finger numbness: A fairly common cause of such symptoms is raynaud's disease: a condition that causes some areas of your body — such as your fingers, toes, the tip of your nose and your ears — to feel numb and cool in response to cold temperatures or stress. The affected area turns pale first, then bluish, and then reddish when it is recovering. Prevent by keeping warm. Usually just a nuisance and not serious. ...Read more

Epistaxis : Epistaxis or bloody noses can be caused by a variety of things and is worth having it looked into by and ear, nose and throat doctor (otolaryngologist). They can place a scope (small camera) into your nose and see why you are having the nose bleeds. They may even be able to stop them from happening. In the meantime, here are a few nose bleed tips. If your nose starts to bleed, pinch the soft part of your nose below the bridge, not the bridge to stop the bleeding. Now keep pinching for 5 minutes. Set a timer or look at a watch because it will feel like forever. And no peeking! that will stop 95% of all nosebleeds.

My back bone is a little bit bend inward than my friends is I stand/sit straight. Mom said that it genetics. But is it normal?

Ok to be different: Mom is correct. A little more or less bent with the curvature of the spine compared to someone else is the equivalent of saying your lips are a little thicker or thinner than someone else's...it's the way you're built. However, if there is doubt as to whether or not your spine curvature is normal or not talk it over with your parents and see if they can take you to a doctor for an opinion. ...Read more
