Hypoglycemia?: Glad you're testing. Be careful to obtain lots of info (written and verbal) from Dr. Follow up on all recommendations and do as much learning as you can. Ask someone you trust and think is smart/organized to help keep track of info. Until results come in, don't fret. I hope it's easy to manage. Just do what you need to and you'll be the best you can be. Wish you well! ...Read more

What should I do if I dropped my young niece on the carpet? She didn't hit her head.

What should I do if I dropped my young niece on the carpet? She didn't hit her head.

Fall: Apologize to her mother. Observe for any signs of injury such as bruises, broken bones- not able to fully move arms or legs. Depends on how high the fall was from. If the fall was from a fully standing position, the injuries may be greater. If from a low height she is probably fine. Observe for concerning symptoms of head injury- vomit, mental changes, confusion., consult for more info. ...Read more

Almost 37weeks but my baby still hasn't drop. Can I give birth naturally if if she won't drop?

Yes!: You still have a few weeks. Some babies don't "drop" until you actually go into labor. At this point, you need to wait for labor and stay in close contact with your Ob. Best wishes! ...Read more

I am in a 60s dorm built for guys. Now it is coed and we have to share the showers and toilets with them. How can I overcome shyness?

I am in a 60s dorm built for guys. Now it is coed and we have to share the showers and toilets with them. How can I overcome shyness?

Not sure as: This is a bit different. Expecting you to share toilets and showers with strangers is not really shy...It is appropriately modest. I doubt you grew up in a house where anyone from your school could come and share your bathroom at any time. Are there times that more women than men are in the bathroom? Are there floors that are just male vs female? See more..... ...Read more

My wife dropped cymbalta (duloxetine) dose from 60mg to 30MG 2 days ago. She was on 60 for 2 years. How long will it take to determine if the lower dose is right.

You should have: Some indication in 4-5 days. It depends on the reason for taking Cymbalta (duloxetine). (and the reason for cutting back on it).
Watch for changes in muscle tone, pain tolerance and mood and comportment. ...Read more

My daughter cries when I drop her off at daycare. How do I know if she doesn’t like it?

If you look upset: When you leave her, it will increase her separation anxiety. Ask that the same caretaker meet you daily with a preferred toy. After a quick good-bye, leave calmly. Ask the director to video her behavior 10-15 minutes after you leave. If she cries for over an hour or has physical signs of mistreatment, that's a different story. ...Read more

Using nasal drops since 2 days for my 3 mon old. She still snuffles. Don't knw what to do. Anything serious??

Using nasal drops since 2 days for my 3 mon old. She still snuffles. Don't knw what to do. Anything serious??

Common: The first months are troubled by narrow nasal passages & exposure to dust, fragrences, smoke & other irritants. Baby tries to flush these out of the nose with mucous but this often ends as congestion & produces rattling with breathing. The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & suctioning the remainder. Eliminate irritants from babies environment & this will happen less. ...Read more

My 27 month old crys when I drop her off at daycare but is playing fine once I come to pick her up...she been at the same daycare for a year?

My 27 month old crys when I drop her off at daycare but is playing fine once I come to pick her up...she been at the same daycare for a year?

Separation anxiety: Separation anxiety is very common in this age group. Ask your day care worker how long after you leave, that the crying stops. It shouldn't be very long. If you are concerned about her care there; make sure you drop in, occasionally, unannounced, to make sure things are ok. I still remember how it broke my heart, when my kids did that! It gets better! ...Read more

My 27 month old has been going to the same daycare for about a year now. Just these last couple weeks she's been crying when I drop her off. Why?

My 27 month old has been going to the same daycare for about a year now. Just these last couple weeks she's been crying when I drop her off. Why?

I agree w': Dr Finklestein this sounds strange. Try talking to your child. Ask if anyone has been touching her in ways she doesn't like or if anyone is hurting her. 27 months is old enough for her to verbalized concerns. It is never too early to tell a child that if anyone does anything to her that hurts or makes her uncomfortable, to tell you. I hope there has not been any foul play, but talk to her. ...Read more

My wife accidentally spilled gasoline on her, she is 21weeks pregnant. She drove home, it took 10 mins, showered at home. Anything we should do?

Gasoline: If your pregnant wife spilled gasoline on herself but then thoroughly cleaned it off within 10 minutes and is now feeling otherwise ok there is nothing else that you need to do other than to pass this information on to her obstetrician and to then follow their advice. ...Read more

I was playing with a sportsbottle, my frnd was drnkng nd I pressed it. She began to choke as a lot water went up the wrong pipe. Secondary drowning?

I was playing with a sportsbottle, my frnd was drnkng nd I pressed it. She began to choke as a lot water went up the wrong pipe. Secondary drowning?

No drowning: That's actually her body's protective reflex to keep things out of your friend's (or any other person, for that matter) airway. If things get into our airways, they can cause a pneumonia. So there was no drowning involved. Please play safely next time. ...Read more

My GYN touched a door handle with the gloves she examined me with. She walked out of the room for a second and came back. Could I contract something?

My GYN touched a door handle with the gloves she examined me with. She walked out of the room for a second and came back. Could I contract something?

Unlikely: But I'm not impressed with your Dr.'s technique. However she could have just been rushed or distracted and wasn't thinking. I've reached for my phone/pager with gloves on before too. It's a reflex. I would tactfully point it out to her if it happens again. I myself would appreciate a gentle reminder if I was distracted. ...Read more

How to Stop Drooling in My Sleep. It's really embarrassing to wake up and see the puddle of drool, and it leaves stain on my sheets. Need help please?

Sleeping habits: A lot of times this can be due to blocked sinuses (ie, you can't breathe through your nose because they're blocked so you breathe through your mouth). Try a decongestant or intranasal spray (eg, Nasocort) to see if that helps. Good luck! ...Read more

When I ejaculated, a drop of semen fell in her panty don't know where it landed. She washed it after 2min. She ws on 25th day of her cycle. Is preg psibl?

How babies are made: No. Sperm have to be 'dropped' into the vagina to make a baby. Not dropped onto the skin or clothing outside of the vagina. You have to be smarter than this. Otherwise your panic will drive you crazy as you live. ...Read more

I had my 3 month in her car seat and I trip come on tomy back porch and when I fell I dropped her car seat. She seems find should I take her to the er?

Fall: The car seat is cushioned, and so it only fell 2-3 feet max. Did you see the head move abruptly when the seat fell? Watch her for the next few hours and see how she is behaving. Anything out of ordinary, take her to the er. ...Read more

My cat always been in doors has not had rabie shot in 2 years bit me should I worry about rabies she was 16 yrs old bite has healed happen 2 weeks ago?

No: A rabies shot within the past 2 years is adequate particularly if there have been other rabies immunizations. Make sure your tetanus is up to date and there are no signs of infection. All the best. ...Read more
