I suddenly felt some dryness and little bumps on my lips. Its now some kind of allergy on my lips. Ate mango from peel; used a newish lip balm. What?

Contact allergy: This may well be from an allergic reaction to the mango but the new lip balm may also be a cause. If you have had problem with poison oak/poison ivy in the past, you are more likely to get a delayed allergic reaction (24-72 hrs after exposure) to mango. Obviously the best treatment is avoidance. ...Read more

My bf suffering testiscular cyst, its like a big mango size. Is there any cure or somehow reduce the size?

Is there a diagnosis: Has he been formally tested and diagnosed with a cyst or is this what you and he feel that it is? He may need an ultrasound to know for sure what is causing the swelling but it could be a few things, such as fluid collections between the different tissues of the testicle and scrotum. Many of these things go away on their own, but if big enough may need medical attention. See a doctor for testing. ...Read more

How do you know if you have a cavity? I bit into a dried mango with added sugar and I caused my teeth to become more sensitive when chewing things

See your dentist!: Some cavities are large ; easy to see - many are hidden under the surface or inbetween your teeth ; may only be detectable on x-rays. While sensitivity to sugar and discomfort may not be a cavity, it is certainly a strong possibility. Cavities do not fix themselves, they only grow bigger. The sooner they are filled the more tooth structure can be preserved ;the better off you ; your tooth will be. ...Read more
