If not and still having fevers, see a doc. Having done a long run sounds like you are generally healthy. If you do these once in a blue moon you are likely to have such phenomena. Be careful dieting at the same time. Urine rust colored? ...Read more

I took a long hot bath and 30 minutes later had excessive white lotion-like discharge in my panties. There was no odor.?

Not likely concern: In general, it is common to have vaginal discharge. After a hot bath as you described, it would be coming to increased discharge simply because of the melting of any thick mucus like discharge from the heat. If there are no symptoms such as you describe: odor, itching, burning, or rash, then it is likely to be a normal process. ...Read more

Cleanliness is...: Cleanliness is next to godliness. The only reason to worry about sperm quality is if one wants to create babies atokeep our species going. Bathing is a highly desirable trait and will make a male human smell nice and clean to a female human... thus greatly increasing his chances of finding a potential female to mate with and perpetuate our species (ie: take a bath and don't worry about the sperm). ...Read more

My son had tubes about 2 yrs ago. He was taking a bath and was floating in the water. For possibility a little too long. He now has an earache...should I be worried or will the pain go away?

NOTHING TO WORRY: The tubes were put in 2 years ago and we don't know if they are still there. Usually tubes fall of in due course of time. The pain is probavly related to water gone in the ear. You can give Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen for pain. But if pain persists take him to the Pediatrician and get his ears checked ...Read more
