Examine closely: Parent plus doctor can examine the site closely to see if there's an identifiable problem, starting from the outside, and thinking about each layer as one moves from outside skin to inside the stomach. If suspecting there is hypersensitivity to touch (on the skin), one can try putting anesthetic cream on it for a few days to see if that helps. Maybe trying a button instead of tube, or vice versa. ...Read more

Could a tight bra (the rough ones not soft) cause neck pain?

Could a tight bra (the rough ones not soft) cause neck pain?

Neck pain: Large breasts rather than an uncomfortable bra is more commonly the cause of neck pain. In my practice, I will refer patients to plastic surgeons for a breast reduction procedure to eliminate the neck pain when other nonoperative measures have failed. If you are physically uncomfortable then you can get neck pain due to muscular stress. So go to a specialty bra store for a comfortable fit. ...Read more

Can wearing a tight bra put pressure on your chest and cause breathing problems like shortness of breath?

Tight Bra and Dyspne: A tight bra can cause minor discomfort in breathing if it is very tight, but the rib cage is bony and so this effect is limited. Further, this matter can be easily tested in a given person by loosening the bra slightly. Significant breathing problems are likely due to other causes, primarily lung and heart conditions, but also nasal blockages, anxiety and severe anemia my contribute. ...Read more

1yr+ shadows on wall behind dryer are actually black mold; intake ambient air = sporesin clothes. Allergy. symptoms 3+mo. Cleaned safely. What are my risks?

1yr+ shadows on wall behind dryer are actually black mold; intake ambient air = sporesin clothes. Allergy. symptoms 3+mo. Cleaned safely. What are my risks?

Low risk: Black mold is problematic for people with definitive allergies to the mold but, if you're not allergic to the mold just being in the same room with the mold without disturbing the mold should not pose a health risk. There's a lot of hysteria about "black mold" perpetuated by companies that charge exorbitant prices to eradicate it...it's not a big health risk. ...Read more
