The blood you describe sounds more related to a tear/fissure from passing the hard stool. However i would recommend following up with a GI doctor. Colon cancer is always a concern when blood is found in the stool. ...Read more

Being insoluble in water, dettol is instead alcohol/pine oil based, and is used as an antiseptic and a cleaner. Dermatitis & possibly inhalation toxicity have been reported.

Can long intake of glutathione IV affect cbc? Can it cause blood cancer or leukemia ?

Can long intake of glutathione IV affect cbc? Can it cause blood cancer or leukemia ?

In a good way; no: Glutathione is unlikely to have any affect on the red cell count but may improve one's white cell count if it is abnormal as it supports immune function.

Sick Mom: I'm sorry to hear about your mother. Without knowing the type of blood cancer your mom has i can't really tell you what to expect.

Sometimes it's valuable to get a second opinion from a different doctor before you decide that nothing is helping her. ...Read more
