What is wrong with me do I have a fetish if I feel more secure in wearing an adult diaper and sucking on a pacifier?

Desire for care: Though I certainly may be wrong in your situation, it seems to me that your wearing a diaper and sucking on a pacifier is probably not so much a fetish as an expression of your desire for someone to care for you like a baby, providing all your needs.

Yes!: Yes, I would recommend you go to the emergency room at a local hospital as soon as possible because you have been having heavy
vaginal bleeding for the last three weeks.
There is a high probability you may be anemic
from your blood loss. You will need to have

My 16-month old has diaper rash from amoxicillin prescription for uri. Also rx'd prednisone. Can the pred. Help pain for rash, or should OTC ibuprof better?

My 16-month old has diaper rash from amoxicillin prescription for uri. Also rx'd prednisone. Can the pred. Help pain for rash, or should OTC ibuprof better?

Use an ointment.: The pain of the diaper rash is mainly caused by the diaper and the urine and stool touching the rash. Coat his bottom with a thick film of zinc oxide paste (found in most over the counter diaper ointments) to protect it. If that does not help, then Ibuprofen is a good pain reliever. You should give the Prednisone as prescribed - it should never be given outside of what it says on the label. ...Read more
