What bed clothing will help with my "broken thermostat"?

What bed clothing will help with my "broken thermostat"?

Thermostat: At night, during sleep, the body temperature lowers about 4 degrees. If you do not allow that to happen, sleep is disrupted and not properly restorative. Generally speaking, use less blankets, and have fresh air in the bedroom. See also medlineplus.Gov for 'sleep hygeine' measures.

Are clothing made out of polyester fabric safe to wear?

Are clothing made out of polyester fabric safe to wear?

Safer now: Back 30 or 40 years ago, in the 1970's, polyester was appearing in stores everywhere, but could subject one to relentless teasing if one wore it amongst the wrong crowd. That polyester was rough and unforgiving, but modern new polyester is pretty good stuff. It's safe to wear. It's soft and lays well but being a plastic (petroleum product), it still causes static. Cotton is softer, with no static.

What can I do about clothing that hurts by the end of the day?

What can I do about clothing that hurts by the end of the day?

Interesting question: Is the question asking what to do about discomfort caused by wearing certain clothing? (clothing itself is not alive and has no feelings.) a person could have some sensory nerve problems in the skin that signal pain when that part of the skin is touched by clothing (a dermatologist or neurologist can look into the matter). One can try wearing different fabrics to see if softer fabrics help.

Can i tell me how i can keep clothing from sticking to a wound?

Can i tell me how i can keep clothing from sticking to a wound?

Simple Care best: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation ( red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected.

How do you avoid clothing with a high amount of toxins in the fabric?

How do you avoid clothing with a high amount of toxins in the fabric?

Depends: Which toxins are you talking about? The word toxin is used a lot but often no one knows what they mean by it. If you are talking about petroleum products you might opt for organic clothing or natural fibers. Still, those may contain bacteria or other "toxins" you are trying to avoid. First you need to find out what you r trying to avoid then you can find how to avoid it.

Are there dangers of trying on clothes in clothing stores where others have likely tried then on before you?

Clothes: There no 'real' danger unless you try on undergarments and bathing suits which is the obvious. But there could reactions to whatever chemicals may be on clothing which may result in some itching. Theres also the possibility of any type of lice being transferred which can happen. So beware of what and how you are trying something on!

See Doctor soon: Ok, i get that as a runner u r more in to the it-b fix--this may need physical therapy (u/s, moist heat, massage, etc.) or orthotic (see podiatry or orthopedist) to address for long term fix so can still run. ***but***no part of not being able to stand up / bend over is "normal"! you ned to see your dr or visit an er (during day time on weekday) to get thorough history & exam to find problem.

What is the best clothing for a newborn?

What is the best clothing for a newborn?

Easy to care for.: The stores are full of adorable baby clothing and it is easy to get carried away with frilly dresses and sweater vests, and you will undoubtedly receive many of these outfits as gifts. But the most practical baby clothing is soft cotton or light wool, easy to wash, and easy to get on and off of a wiggly, wet or poopy baby. Layers work well as babies do not regulate their temperatures well.

Why do babies always like the tags on their clothing and toys?

Why do babies always like the tags on their clothing and toys?

Slippery: Who knows, really. But i thought after my first child I should have designed a toy to take advantage of that. But someone else figured it out: taggies - those adorable blankies and toys that are trimmed with tags. I think the answer lies in the fact that the tags are usually satin (nice slippery feel in fingers/mouth) and stick out from the shirt or toy. Appears to universal, though!

Can you get herpes through clothing?

Can you get herpes through clothing?

Doubtful: By theory, but doubtful. For example if a person has an open sore or even a sore that is not readily visible and has sex while you are wearing underwear and the virus gets on your underwear, it would have to seep through the clothing and get onto your vaginal area. That being said, the safest is the use of condoms to prevent the spread of the virus, as it is unlikely with clothing, but can occur.
