Should I be nervous that my toddler got blood on her from a gay man?

Clarification: If you suspect your toddler may have been exposed to blood or serum from an unknown patient, it is always best to get him or her evaluated by your family physician, urgent care, or an emergency room physician. However, the workup he or she receives will be the same, regardless of the blood's source. Exposure to blood from homosexual and heterosexual patients are evaluated in the same manner. ...Read more

Foreskin Adhesions?: An amount of blood large enough to be seen is rarely going to be from your child's urine. The most likely source is from a break in adhesions around the base of the foreskin. Examine the skin at the base of the foreskin that looks inflamed. Foreskin can naturally adhese to head of penis and will cause small amount of blood when retracted and adhesions break. Apply vaseline irritated areas. ...Read more

My hemoglobin has always been in the low 12 s. It now fell into the 11s. Should I be concerned? I am a 45 year old female.

My hemoglobin has always been in the low 12 s.  It now fell into the 11s. Should I be concerned?  I am a 45 year old female.

Anemia: Anemia is a broad term for low hemoglobin caused by many different things. Common things are common as we say. For a woman who is still having her menses, it's not unusual to be mildly anemic. Make sure your diet has enough iron. If you or your doctor doesn't suspect iron deficiency, then it will require workup for other things. Good luck! ...Read more

My husband has a small bruise on his actual EYEBALL after getting in a fight yesterday. Is this something we should be worried about?

My husband has a small bruise on his actual EYEBALL after getting in a fight yesterday. Is this something we should be worried about?

Eye bruise: Concern for blood in or around the eyeball or globe really depends on what part of the eye is involved. If the bruise in on the white part of the globe or sclera, it isn't a big problem. However, if there is blood behind the clear part of the eye or cornea, it should be seen by an ophthalmologist right away. Also, if there are any vision problems, he should be evaluated right away. ...Read more

I have a 4 year old daughter, and ever since she was young she flaps her arms when's she's excited or happy. Could this be a sign of autism?

I have a 4 year old daughter, and ever since she was young she flaps her arms when's she's excited or happy. Could this be a sign of autism?

Unlikely...: Motor stimulation is common and normal in kids who are excited. Autism is characterized by difficulty with interpersonal relationships, communication, using language and abstract concepts. Does your daughter speak, make eye contact, and engage with you and others? If so, she is not autistic - enjoy the flapping because there is nothing better than a happy and excited kid. ...Read more

A few months ago i developed this small lump on my inner lip, how soon should it get removed? Or is it okay to leave it there? I am a 27 year old woman who has only been with one man, a faithful man. The only wart he's ever had on him was on his finger. W

There : There are many things that can cause a growth in the lower lip, from the simple (fibroma or mucocel) to the complex (cancer). There are very few things that can cause a growth in the lower lip that will miraculously disappear. Without obtaining a sample of the tissue to microscopically examine it is impossible to provide a diagnosis. Mucocel, or better known as mucous extravasation phenomena, is the result of damage to one of the hundreds of minor salivary glands located in the mouth. Either the gland itself is damaged or the duct that allows the saliva to escape into the mouth. The result is that the saliva is still produced around meal times but has no where to escape to causing a build up in the tissues. These lesions can grown quite large and become painful. Occasionally the saliva will slowly leak into the mouth allowing the swelling to decompress. Unfortunately this is not the end of the problem. In situations like this i recommend removal of the lesion for diagnostic, and potentially curative, purposes. If you are not comfortable with your present surgeon seek a second opinion. ...Read more

Bipolar : Bipolar disorder is an illness where people can have severe "mood swings" between mania and depression. It is seen more commonly in people whose family members also suffer from bipolar disorder. It typically starts between ages 15-25 and affects men and women equally. If your children aren't having any current behavioral problems (and that's good!), then there is no way to test them. Below i attached a website with information on bipolar disorder from the national institute for health. If you have any additional questions, ask your children's doctor. ...Read more

My baby girl has a red spot on Her white of her eye. I am worried as to what it could be. Also, after every letter i type on here the cursor moves.

My baby girl has a red spot on Her white of her eye. I am worried as to what it could be. Also, after every letter i type on here the cursor moves.

That could be a: broken blood vessel from delivery, depending on the age of your baby. If it seems painful, it could also be that she poked her eye with her nail, or someone else's. I would still recommend that you have her doctor examine her and he/she will be able to tell you for sure. ...Read more
