No waxing or shaving: Tretinoin (retin-a) cream can help decrease skin plugging or hyperkaratosis.

Hi I am 29yrs old I have pain around my navel and stomach I did exercise, do you it could be sore? I don't feel nausea
You may have a small: Hernia. I wouldn't worry too much if it passes and is non tender to touch. If there isa hernia and bowel pops through and gets strangulated u get sick and that's a problem. It sounds ok, if we all went in for soreness there would be no one around to work and healthcare would go through the roof. Low probability of an issue. ...Read more

Call your doctor: He could have hand-foot- and mouth, a viral illness that does go away on its own, but causes painful ulcers in the mouth and throat, and sometimes a rash. However, strep throat can cause the tongue to look white (strawberry tongue- white with dots on it), and strep throat can cause stomach pain. You don't always have a sore throat. Strep throat can be serious, and requires medicine from a doctor. ...Read more
I am experiencing bloating or abdominal fullness and black tar-colored stools. Some soreness to upper stomach.?
Any ideas why I get sore easily? Mainly on back, abdomen, groin, butt and shoulders. I play soccer 2-3 days in a week 19 yrs old/male.
Might need a break: Great that you're getting this kind of exercise, but wonder if the soreness could be from the soccer. Maybe a little conditioning in between soccer could help. There are also inflammatory conditions of the muscles that could be causing this discomfort. Talk to your doctor and let him know the symptoms, to see if any workup is in order. ...Read more

Spent hours in ER for nothing, 6 year old in serious pain. Help! My 6 year old has complained about a sore throat for a few days now. Yesterday the complaints got worse. She was restless throughout the night, ran a fever, and complained of stomach pain a
Hello. This does sound frustrating. One of the hardest things for me as a mother, is seeing my child in pain. Children can actually get enlarged tonsils fairly easily. The reason that your daughter wasn't prescribed an antibiotic is likely that if she doesn't have streph throat that it will not help an infection that is viral in nature. Starting and stopping antibiotics is actually a major reason that we have developed so many antibiotic resistant bacteria in the us. There can be side effects for a number of antibiotics such as gasterointestinal upset, yeast infections and allergic reactions.
Regarding a negative rapid strep test, yes sometimes the more definitive test may still come back positive. This happened to me a few months ago.
If her temp rises to 104 or greater, she should be re-evaluated. Usually the major source of pain is from the temperature. If her fever is not well controlled with the tylenol/ Motrin rotation, consider addition of tepid bath to help control any fever spikes. If she is urinating well, then she should be adequately hydrated. There are lollipop lozenges in a variety of shapes and flavors that can be used at her age to assist with the pain of a sore throat.
I hope she feels better soon. Take care. ...Read more

6yr old girl stomach pains around belly button. No fever, mouthful of vomit. Extended tummy. Been constipated. Bowel movement today still sore. Worry?
Extended=distended?: Probably constipation/fecal impaction. Chronic constipation is not healed by one bowel movement. There could be some relief with lactulose, but you will need to consult for chronic treatment. Could also be mesenterial adenitis - although more likely if there was fever. Mesenterial adenitis normally due to viral infection - only symptomatic treatment. ...Read more
