My daughter has a rash on her inner thigh that is vey itchyshe has had it for sometime now she's 33 weeks pregnat so what can it be an how can we treat?

Lots of possibilitie: Simple rashes that itch can be from a variety of environmental agents (soaps, lotions, fabrics) or skin conditions, chafing etc. The best way to know is to have it examined. Sometimes a mild otc cortizone (hydrocortisone) cream can help it if it's simple irritation but persistence after a trial is worth a visit. ...Read more

U may want to: Wait a couple of weeks to see if the bleeding will stop. Trauma to the cervix or premature bleeding prior to a menstrual flow may be the reason, but you may also have some infection. If vaginal itching, odor or discharge follows, then you will need to check with your doctor to be sure you do not have an infection. ...Read more

If I'm a strep a carrier, how likely is it that my daughter is as well?

If I'm a strep a carrier, how likely is it that my daughter is as well?

Not from you: The risks of transmission to family members of strep pyogenes from a person carrying it but with no symptoms seems to be very low (kaplan el, "the group a streptococcal upper respiratory tract carrier state: an enigma." j. Pediatr. 1980;97 (3):337). The chances of becoming a strep carrier from being a school-aged child are high enough; one estimate is over 20%. ...Read more

If my son has high functioning autism, is it likely my daughter will have it too?

If my son has high functioning autism, is it likely my daughter will have it too?

Yes and no: Asperger's and autism may run in some families. But not in all families with one child with the disorder. If it runs in famlies it is likely to be due a multiple factor inheritance not a single gene. In short the only way to tell is to have your daughter tested by a psychologist with expertise in this area. ...Read more

Great uncle had acute leukemia and now his daughter has it at 50 years old. Is this likely hereditary or can it be spontaneous?

Great uncle had acute leukemia and now his daughter has it at 50 years old. Is this likely hereditary or can it be spontaneous?

Probably not: Did your great uncle had leukemia at an advanced age? Is it cll? Cll is a very common type of leukemia in old people, and no hereditary trend. On the other hand his daughter at 50 probably developed aml. If my guesses are correct, I don't see any hint of heredity. However, if the great uncle had aml, or all, and if other members of the family had cancer (breast, brain, colon etc.) then it could be. ...Read more

My daughter is about 3 and a half months old and starting a week ago today she has been coughing. My dr said it is most likely a cold. Is this true?

My daughter is about 3 and a half months old and starting a week ago today she has been coughing. My dr said it is most likely a cold. Is this true?

Hard to say: Without knowing any more history and without being able to do a physical examination, neither I nor any physician would be in the position to disagree with the diagnosis given. Keep a close eye on your daughter. If it doesn't feel right for you as a mother, you can always get a second opinion. I hope this helps. ...Read more

My 6yr daughter had a FBC and her haemoglobin level and haematocrit  are both just above normal range. How likely is it she has polycythemia Vera?

My 6yr daughter had a FBC and her haemoglobin level and haematocrit  are both just above normal range. How likely is it she has polycythemia Vera?

Unlikely: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without the actual numbers, though it is highly unlikely that a 6 year-old has polycythemia vera. ...Read more

Is my daughter likely to have dangerous food allergies if her dad does?

Not necessarily: Someone can inherit the tendency toward allergic responses but not the specific allergies. There is also the contribution of her mother that may dilute the effect. I would monitor her response to things as you introduce them but not be a prisoner to the idea. ...Read more

What is the worst or worst likely case from my 2 year old daughter drinking some of her bath water?
