In peyrione's disease are the plaque's or the curving ever on the side? Most sites say it's on dorsal or bottom. Is the side very very rare in this?

Not rare: The plaques are often on the side, causing the excessive curvature. Difficult to treat, but you might try topical application of DMSO (horse liniment) available from a health food store or feed store. Use 70% concentration. Higher concentration may be irritating with repeated use. High dose vitamin E (1,000 IU) per day has also been used. ...Read more

If I had damage on the right side of my penis, would Peyronie's disease plaque show up on the top(dorsal) of my penis?

If I had damage on the right side of my penis, would Peyronie's disease plaque show up on the top(dorsal) of my penis?

Penile Trauma: If you had trauma on the right side of the penis you would not develop a Peyronies plaque dorsally.

You should see a physician to help determine what you are feeling. ...Read more

What are these strange white flaky plaques on the side of my nose? How do I get rid of them? They pop up especially after shower. Feels "hot."

Often the scalp and the area around the nose are inflamed at the same time. Seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic skin condition that cannot be cured, but can be controlled with topical medications.

One of my sons teeth had hard white plaque I think on it cause I has a white spot on the side of his teeth. Is It possible to get it back to normal?

One of my sons teeth had hard white plaque I think on it cause I has a white spot on the side of his teeth. Is It possible to get it back to normal?

That depends: That depends on what is actually going on. Hardened plaque is called calculus. This can be easily removed by the dentist and the tooth returned to normal. The beginning of a cavity can also look like a white spot. This is harder to resolve and may require a filling. Your son needs an exam by a pediatric dentist to determine what is going on and how to solve this problem. ...Read more

I have tremors on right side for 9 years; left side is normal; I have white matter ischemic changes+ lacune infarcts;  no significant plaque; Dx?

See a neurologist: Focal tremors could be a sign of Parkinson's disease. You do describe prior strokes, and many lacunar infarcts can also cause tremors. The focality does concern me as I would want to rule out obstruction of carotid or vertebral artery in neck. An experienced neurologist should be able to pin down the causation ...Read more

I've got a slight plaque buildup in my neck vessels, both sides. What can I do to clean them out?

See a cardiologist: A cardiologist would likely order a CT scan of your carotids (the arteries in your neck) & also check whether type 2 diabetes is contributing to the plaque formation Starting you on a statin ( a cholesterol lowering drug) would certainly be a option.
