My Child Suffers From Histaldia Has Been For About Six Months Will This Go Away
Say What?: This condition is a proposed cause of a variety of symptoms. It is not recognized by any authoratative certified experts or research. Does it really exist? Not totally clear, but at present appears to be a " made up " condition with lots of expensive wasted money recommendations to cure what probably is a nonexistant condition. Beware. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can hemangioma go away? My child had a biopsy, but it has been growing again. It grows on her leg under the skin. She's15, it's been there for 9 years
Unlikely at this age: Some hemangiomas do "go away" on their own, but this is usually seen in infants. At age 15, with it enlarging, this would seem unlikely. You are in san fransisco...I would seek an opinion at your university medical center...They may have someone who specializes in the treatment of hemangiomas or "arteriovenous malformations". If not i would start with a dermatologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Full bloods done all normal apart from slight high CRP and platelet, lymph node on child been 11 months nw, won't go away, paediatrics 3 times seen her?
May be normal: Swollen lymph nodes may be normal in children depending on the case.If your child is acting well, eating/growing well, and the lab work is normal, this may be a reactive lymph node (is it in the neck?). Lymph nodes react to anything foreign in the body, including bacteria/ viral infections and allergies, and may stay swollen for prolonged periods. If it is changing, follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

Hand, : Hand, foot and mouth disease is a viral illness usually comprised of fever, painful blisters in the mouth, and rash. It typically affects infants and children under 5 years of age. The symptoms usually clear within 7 to 10 days. If your child has had 2 months of non-stop symptoms, it may not be hand, foot and mouth disease, but another illness depending on what her symptoms are.

Depends: Some people that have multiple fracture may have had legitimate injuries that have caused fractures through normal bone; others will have something wrong with their bones that causes them to fracture.

Suffer retractile testicles after inguinal hernia surgery. Will this go away or stay like this forever? It's been 2.5 months. Any tips to make it go?
Should stop: I admit i don't have any research to quote you, but in my experience this somewhat atypical problem should be self limited. You could try applying warm heat to the scrotum, in the privacy of your own home, of course. This would cause the cremasteric muscles to relax to drop the testicles away from the groin. It's worth a shot. Good luck. ...Read more
