My brother is 28yo and at the ymca he changes in the kids locker room cause he hates the adult ones is that ok at all?

My brother is 28yo and at the ymca he changes in the kids locker room cause he hates the adult ones is that ok at all?

Probably not ok: At 28, he is a grown man. So, if there is a problem with the adult locker room, he should be able to convince the ymca management to fix it (because the management wouldn't want problems). Otherwise, anatomical adult males should change in the men's locker room, and anatomical adult females should go to the women's locker room. Young kids needing supervision can go with the adult supervising them. ...Read more

Is the size of my penis too small? Boys stare in locker room

Is the size of my penis too small? Boys stare in locker room

Possibly: The size of your penis cannot be changed or altered by medications. It will continue to grow through puberty so do not focus on the size before then. If by chance you are still concerned about having a small penis, you will need blood tests to evaluate your hormone function and if low, medications may be needed but this usually not needed. ...Read more

How likely is it to get fungus on your feet from not wearing flip flops in the men's locker room?

How likely is it to get fungus on your feet from not wearing flip flops in the men's locker room?

Not very likely.: We used to worry about fungus being spread in locker rooms, showers, etc. Now the thinking is that these fungi are pretty much everywhere, and it is the environment of the shoe (dark & damp) which allows them to get established on the feet, especially between the toes. Washing your feet daily with soap and water and wearing clean dry cotton socks are strong preventative measures. ...Read more

This morning during my third period and went into the locker room and went to go to the br really quick and I m not sure if my tampon fell out but I couldn t find the string so I put another one in but now I m not sure if it did fall out or the other one

This morning during my third period and went into the locker room and went to go to the br really quick and I m not sure if my tampon fell out but I couldn t find the string so I put another one in but now I m not sure if it did fall out or the other one

Get it checked: It is possible that the first tampon is still there. You can feel inside your vagina with your finger and try to locate and remove it. If you can't tell for sure if it is still there or not you should go to an ob/gyn or women's healthcare nurse practitioner and have an exam. A "lost tampon" in the vagina will typically cause foul discharge and odor but you shouldn't wait for symptoms. ...Read more

What makes feet smell my grand-daughter's feet smell like a locker room

What makes feet smell my grand-daughter's feet smell like a locker room

Hello.: Hello. Bacteria like to live in moist environments. When we sweat, bacteria can flourish. We all have bacteria on our skin. The bacteria create substances that have "foot smells". If the feet are not ventilated, more sweat will build up. Think about what makes a locker room stink- gym shoes. Why do gym shoes stink more than our other shoes? - because we exercise and sweat in them. ...Read more

My son slammed locker door on finger. How can I tell if it's just a sprain, jammed, or broken finger? He says hurts to move it.

My son slammed locker door on finger. How can I tell if it's just a sprain, jammed, or broken finger? He says hurts to move it.

Xray: The most accurate way is performance of radiography or xray of finger. Sprains and soft tissue injury in general are shorter in duration of symptoms. Deformity, point tenderness, discoloration, interruption in movement are signs of fracture. Any or all of signs and symptoms may not be present and vary in degree. ...Read more

I am 71 have CAD recently have some PVCs after exercising mostly. I take a statin and sometimes have fast heartbeat. Have lo BP so cant takebeta locker?

Not certain what: Your question is. PVC's after exercise can be normal but may also be a sign of progression of CAD. Fast heart beats in a patient with CAD can be very bad or nothing at all. We have medications to help elevate your blood pressure in order to be able to use beta blockers. Sounds like you need to focus your questions and get checked out by your health care provider. ...Read more

Punched a locker last night and a bulge immediately appeared behind knuckle. After icing it went away, now have mild pain and full motion. Diagnosis?

Boxer Fracture: The common story here is that this is one of the most frequent causes of fracture. Pounding on something when one is angry is a common problem on how to hurt oneself. I would hope this is just an injury that is not a fracture, but if the pain persists you may want to get an x-ray to see if the bones need to be realigned or casted.

Lesson learned: deal with anger in healthy ways. ...Read more
