This : This may be a case of jock itch aka tinea cruris. It's very hard to say without seeing the lesion. If the area is still affected and particularly if it's itchy he can try an over anti-fungal cream like clotrimazole. If that does not work or he is concerned he should visit a medical professional.
All the best. ...Read more

Dehydrated?: Your child needs to be evaluated. According to my calculations it's been 24 hours since she voided. I would take her to the e r because she should have her electrolytes checked because of dehydration. Chances are she will need I.V. Fluids. At the same time she should have her urine checked. ...Read more

Weird cycle: It is important to not panic just because one cycle if a little off from the others. The main issue is what is the pattern over time. If your cycles return to normal over the next few months then one abnormal cycle is not an issue. Always make sure your pregnancy test is negative.
