Would it be ok to purchase a gently used dehumidifier. Rainy season on and my son and I are asthmatic. Is there a natural way to dehumidify?

Yes it's OK: There is no problem with a used dehumidifier. There are not a lot of good ways to "naturally dehumidify". For most asthmatic people, though, it's not the actual humidity that is the problem, but increase in things like dust mites in higher humidity that are the triggers for the asthma. Work on reducing exposures to these things, such as frequent washing of bedding, dusting and vacuuming. ...Read more

I stabbed my toe on a dirty metal shard in my kitchen. It might have been wet and nibbled on. Is rabies possible?

Think tetanus: Rabies is an animal based disease (zoonosis) so that is not a consideration here. Tetanus, however, is. So make sure you are up to date on tetanus vaccine. You will likely need to get that cleaned out properly, esp. If it was a puncture wound. I recommend going to an urgent care center where they can professionally clean it out and give you a tetanus booster if you're due. ...Read more

I *just* noticed a 'scab' like spot on on the abdomen. It is slightly raised (as per a scab) and it has a 'sharp clear' end not a fuzzy edge.

Wait and see: Keep an eye on that spot for the next week. If it is not painful, there is no pus, and it is healing up normally, then you can let it keep healing. If it doesn't go away, gets larger, drains anything, or hurts, go see a doctor. You can circle it with a permanent marker if that helps you remember to check it. ...Read more

Raised area on the upper right side of my forehead. Size of a fifty cent piece. I have sharp headache pains for 2 straight days. What could this be?

Lump and Headache: You could have a dermoid or sebaceous cyst on the forehead. The "stretched skin" could trigger a headache. A neurofibroma - have you had these lesions before anywhere else on your body- could also be at play? Retain vascular lesions - which can also cause a headache - may also be the problem. Is the bump red and tender? Does it "pulsate? " I would consult with your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more
