My two year old has small clear spots on the botton of her feet they dont seem to bother her but her dad is a really bad diabetic?

Check blood sugar: There is an easy urine test to check for diabetes. You can even check her blood sugar at home with her dad's tester. It should be less than 100. That said, the symptoms of diabetes are increased thirst and frequent urination with weight loss. Problems with circulation in feet and resulting rash occurs with years of poorly treated diabetes. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Tinea Pedis: Likely you have athlete foot and very common between the toes because of moisture. Many otc products are available and rx creams which in my view work better. See your local podiatrist. ...Read more

I get cold sores on my lips, is it possible that I have given them to my 2 year old? He also has dots (kinda like pimples) on his face also.

I get cold sores on my lips, is it possible that I have given them to my 2 year old? He also has dots (kinda like pimples) on his face also.

Possible: It is possible to spread a cold sore to your child by kissing when there are active lesions. The dots should all be clustered and resemble a cold sore. If the "pimples" are more scattered, it is more likely to be a skin infection like folliculitis or impetigo, which is treated with oral or topical antibiotics. ...Read more

My son has what I can only describe as bubble spots on his back, shoulders and chest overnight he has more and they've grown, what could they be?

See your doctor: It's very difficult to diagnose a rash with a short description and no picture. And although most rashes in children are nothing to worry about, if the rash is getting worse or he has any other signs of being unwell, you should see your doctor to make sure it's nothing serious. Good luck! ...Read more

My husband got the fronts of his legs badly sunburned and he has a huge blister on one leg and small one on other leg. What can we do to get it heale?

My husband got the fronts of his legs badly sunburned and he has a huge blister on one leg and small one on other leg.  What can we do to get it heale?

Keep clean...: The burn will heal with time. Given age of 75, I'm curious if any medical conditions exist that would impair healing? See local doc to determine if rx antibiotic cream is needed. Your husband should keep the area clean (gentle soap and water) and avoid tight clothes that will likely irritate the area and be painful to him. Avoid picking at the blisters as that increases chance for infection. ...Read more

I have little bumps on my legs, arms, and bottom and when I pop them white comes out I've had them my whole life and no one can tell me what they are.

Diff to tell/ Acne?: Honestly it sort sounds as innocent as acne (zits). When you pop them and the white stuff that comes out sounds like puss (or old neutraphils-white cells). If you want you could go to a dermatologist who would able to do a biopsy on them to determine what they exactly are. ...Read more

I has a small few warts on my neck and i cut them off because they really bothered me was this safe? And can warts be genetic?

I has a small few warts on my neck and i cut them off because they really bothered me was this safe?  And can warts be genetic?

It is safe: Warts are the product of a viral infection onto the skin. Cutting them off as you have done is probably safe although there is a small risk of spreading the virus. Keep the areas clean and a little rubbing alcohol on the site will be helpful. Warts are not genetic in origin but your genetics might make you a little more susceptible to getting them. ...Read more
