16mo old son has diarrhea 4 the last 2 days and has caused a terrible rash. Prev medication ointment not working. Aloe & vaseline & powder not fixing?

Zind oxide: Irritative rashes from diarrhea in toddlers ae amongst the most stubborn rashes to cure. Try and get some daily air into that area - let him run around diaperless outside - who cares if he poops or pees on the lawn? Then, a diaper cream that has zinc oxide may be more useful - some brand names: triple paste, butt paste, desitin, (zinc oxide diaper cream) or generic zinc oxide. ...Read more

What are your thoughts on Juicing and using protein powder or flaxseed for weight loss? Will there be a problems with medications or conditions?

Juicing: Fresh organic juicing (with more vegetables than fruits) can be an excellent approach to weight loss. It can be expensive for purchase the vegetables & fruits and time consuming for preparation. I recommend that you read up on it first or consider working with a naturopathic doctor or a nutritionist who is experienced in this area. Rice protein is usually easy on the GI tract.

My nephew was born at 25weeks at 1lb 10oz he has pda and is 4weeks old now, they r treating him with medication at present, how risky is surgery?

PDA: For an extremely premature baby all surgeries carry significantly elevated risks. The good news about all of this is: IF medical therapy fails (indomethacin) the PDA surgery is not "open heart surgery", the CT surgeon approaches the PDA through the side and places a clip on the ductus thus closing it off. Ignoring the ductus is not an option. ...Read more

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain.

In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
