My daughter in law just had surgery as a result of an ectopic pregnancy. the cut is healing nicely but there is a light pink fluid coming out ever so often, the cut is clean has no smell and she has no fever. the cut itches a lot though. the fluid is so

My daughter in law just had surgery as a result of an ectopic pregnancy.  the cut is healing nicely but there is a light pink fluid coming out ever so often, the cut is clean has no smell and she has no fever. the cut itches a lot though.  the fluid is so

It depends : Whether this is normal or a problem depends on several things including how long ago she had the surgery, whether it was laparoscopic or open, and how heavy she is. This could just be a seroma (a collection of tissue fluid) draining or it can be a sign that the incision is breaking down and going to come open. She needs to bring this to the attention of her surgeon to know for sure. Hope this help ...Read more

Am i pregnant? This last week I have experienced night time nausea with headaches, only got sick once though, and one nipple itches all the time. I took a pregnancy test that might have been out of date but still came up negative.

Hello. : Hello. Am assuming that you have been having unprotected intercourse. Normally a woman tests her urine (for a standard home pregnancy test) at the time she misses her period. Symptoms of pregnancy can include: lack of period, nausea, vomiting, headache, feeling tired, urinating more often, insomnia, enlarged or tender breasts, moodiness, etc. Those symptoms normally do not begin until her period is actually missed. If any of the above sounds familiar, you could take a pregnancy test. ...Read more

I have developed a small wound on me penis as a result of severe itching. Please recommend any medicine? Please also advise on possible causes of it?

Here are some...: Severely scratching the itchy area may induce skin injury and subsequent tissue inflammation. Without a direct look, it's hard to offer the intended right Dx. Clinically, eczema, psoriasis, or foreskin-related disorders need to be considered. For temporary care, apply topical cream with antibiotics, anti-fungal, with steroid - hydrocortisone sill help ease the discomfort. If not improved, seek doc ...Read more

Doc I hav Ige levels over 1500 After I stop the medicine I take then severe itching starts plz tell a medicine to stop it completely?

Not enough info: IgE level of 1500 is high, but this usually occurs as a marker of some other disease process and not the causative feature. Please rephrase question and let us know what type of work-up/testing is completed (for example, studies to rule out parasite infection). May be better as Virtual Consult. Will mention: uncontrolled eczema can rebound with severe itching after prednisone and can raise IgE. ...Read more

Dr,  I have severe itching in leg with red rashes for last two days & reduces on Avil tab.. 'm on warf 6mg & HCQ 400. Is it medicine's allergy?

Probably not: but you need to talk to your doctor about this issue. Warfarin rash tends to induce huge bruises and likely more generalized than confined to the legs. However it is possible that this may be from HCQ especially if it had been introduced within the past month or so. If problem persists, you may need to see a dermatologist. If it is helped by Advil, (ibuprofen) I would look for the presence of vasculitis. ...Read more
