Hi, I am jay patel and I want to know about skin. Every time after normal to mild injury my skin not becomes as well before. Two much skin layers are?
Keloid?: You MAY be developing keloids. If so, your body is healing very well but producing an over-abundance of tissue in the process. This is more common in people w/brown or dark skin than w/pale skin. Please see your doctor. Consider using liquid Vitamin E oil on the scars. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Hi. My 18 month old daughter has constipation. It seems to be happening often. She is currently in pain. What can I do to help her now. Thank you Jay?
Hi doc, I have 10-13 RBC/hcf showing up in my urine routine, while everything else is falling within normal range. I was just wondering what might be the cause of this and what should be the further course of action for me. Thanks Jay?
Kidney stone: There are several causes of blood in the urine. The most common is a kidney stone so you should be checked for that. Other causes are from infection or bladder cancer. If it is persistent then a CT scan to look for stones is what I would do first (if there is no infection). Then next would consider sending you to urology for possible bladder cystoscopy. ...Read more
Is there a possible link between taking long term betablockers and diabetes due to over production of insulin and negative metabolic effects? Jay
No link: Although betablockers can inhibit the symptoms of hypoglycemia in diabetics, there are no studies that I am aware of that indicate that it contributes to higher Insulin levels or diabetes. One beta blocker (carvedilol) has studies demonstrating beneficial effects in diabetics in terms of Insulin levels and glucose control. ...Read more
I had unprotected sex with two men one on jan30 (jay)the other on the 31 (shaun)then I had sex with shaun again 3 more x's I ovulated on 3-4 who's dad?
Would carvedilol be a good choice of the newer betablockers for migraine aura and is there any convincing evidence? Thanks jay.
After mitral valve repair with annuloplasty ring and health is good with trivial regurgitation is there any evidence in betablockers for life? Jay
No: I suspect you were put on a beta blocker after surgery for atrial arrhythmias (especially atrial fibrillation) which is very common in the first few months after mitral repair surgery. But once you're fully healed (6 months), if you're not having any dysrhythmia and your blood pressure is controlled, you won't need beta blockers any longer. If your BP is up, a different drug could be used anyway. ...Read more

I'm Jay, 26 M, 97.4kg with Hypertension Stage II, high SGPT&SGOT. Taking Losartan 50mg AM, Felodipine 5mg at night. Still my bp upon waking is 130/100mmhg?
Need more meds.: That BP remains a bit too high, specifically the diastolic number. For now, you need more medication, perhaps a higher dose of one medication or the other, to bring your numbers into better control. Eventually, though, weight loss will certainly help. ...Read more
6 months after my mitral valve repair are antibiotics required for dental procedures ie for fillings and scale and clean in the uk or us. Jay?
Yes, pre-med: Any heart valve repair, replacement or even a functional, but damaged heart valve require antibiotic pre-medication in the us (can't say about uk, but suspect this is a universal precaution) for any routine invasive dental treatment. This is because of the bacteremia caused when this treatment is rendered and a dosage of antibiotics an hour before treatment is a small thing to do to stay healthy! ...Read more
I have forehead pain above my eyebrow area and in the middle of my forehead. Also tenderness in the cheekbones and eye area. Plz Doctor Jay C tell me?
Could be sinus: As as sinus related. Again without either more information or really seeing you I can't be certain. But it's possible that something is irritating your sinuses (the frontal sinuses are in the forehead region, maxillary by the cheeks, and ethmoid behind the nose). This could vary from different types of infections to just plain allergies. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Haven't been able to get pregnant. Started trying Jan 15. I have 1 child, my husband has 2. What's going on?
Might not be anything wrong. That being said it could be something u or hubby is doing. Try some Robitussin (guaifenesin) for yourself. Ask hubby to wear boxers if he isn't already, no drugs, alcohol or cigarettes those can all decrease sperm count. If none of those things help and u have tried for more than 1 year. U both need to see the doctor to see if there is a problem
Why can I not ejaculate with a female but I can make myself ejaculate I have never been able to ejaculate with a female when in sexaul intercoures but I can jack off and cum
You are likely dealing with performance anxiety. This usually stems from fear of sexual performance and in your case fear that you can not ejaculate. The anxiety and fear usually increases after each experience making it even more of an issue. I suggest you speak with a mental health professional regarding this issue so that you may address the underlying cause.
Best of luck. ...Read more
It is quite possible for you to "jam" your ankle just as you would "jam" other joints. Its important after recovery from the pain and swelling to be evaluated for cartilage damage (i.e. OCD lesion) and ligamentous injury (i.e. high ankle sprain, syndesmosis injury). Please consult a podiatrist or orthopedist who can order advanced imagining and steer you in the right treatment protocol. ...Read more

Either.: Your ankle pains could simply be indicative of the fact that your extra weight is causing strain upon your weight-bearing joints, for example the ankles. As well, being overweight does accelerate the process of developing arthritis. But you’re doing the right thing, as weight loss helps arthritis to not bother you as much. ...Read more

I have a spot above r ankle outside when I bend over it feels like a sparkler got too close. Elec sharp jabs of pain for months now. What is it?

I have had this weird ball under my skin above my right jaw for 6 months and I don't know what it is. Lately it hurts to touch the ball. What is it?
Swollen gland: Its sounds like you may have a swollen cyst, or lymph node. If the size is growing in nature, recommend you get an ultrasound of the tissue to further evaluate it and potentially a biopsy. It may be a lipoma a non cancerous fat deposition but you need a biopsy to determine this. ...Read more
Noticed today a very small bump under my skin just above jaw lineabout 15cm left of chin, moves a bit does not hurt, can't see it visually what is it?
Lymph node: It may be a lymph node and it may be normal to have it especially if it is small, round, not painful, not fixed. If in doubt, though, see doc. ...Read more
After sittin long, sharp pain felt at the part above the natal cleft. Started after fallin on the butt during ice skatin in Jan & is worsenin. Hlp pls
Cracked tailbone: Falling ion your butt on ice could have resulted in a fractured coccyx. Treatment would be unloading it to avoid pressure on the coccyx. But get a plain x-ray first ...Read more
Controversial: Some will say any cracking is abnormal. I believe without discomfort it is being able to slide the upper part of your jaw over a bony structure at the base of the skull. This can happen in most upon opening really wide. Point is no pain. If there is pain, not good. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Popping or cracking is usually due to muscle imbalance or joint problems, though painless popping of joints can be harmless. It could cause problems if frequent. Isometric exercises that use resistance- tightening muscles without movement-are very helpful for preventing problem popping. Joint problems usually improve with this, but may need medical attention if it gets worse. ...Read more
Possibly: The longer you wait, the more difficult the "fix." Please see an Oral Surgeon. ...Read more
