Can you get lice (body lice, head lice, pubic lice) by trying on clothes, hats.... or by using a public toilet room?

Can you get lice (body lice, head lice, pubic lice) by trying on clothes, hats.... or by using a public toilet room?

Germophobia: This is the same question as your others, this time about lice. Like warts, only come from intimate contact with another person, not clothing or contamined environment. Abnormal fear of contagion (germophobia) can be an early sign of serious mental health disability (see "The Aviator", the biopic of Howard Hughes, for a good example). You might benefit from professional counseling about this. ...Read more

Can a person catch intertrego at another persons house  buy using there bath tub?

Intertrigo: Intertrigo is the word used to describe a rash in body folds. Affected skin is reddened and uncomfortable. Intertrigo is particularly common in those who are overweight. Body folds (flexures) are prone to inflammatory rashes because of: relatively high skin temperature, moisture from insensible water loss and sweating cannot evaporate, friction from movement of adjacent skin results in chafing? ...Read more

Took 6 week old for walk. 80 degrees and very sunny. Legs exposed in stroller for 30 min with no sunblock. Problem?

Took 6 week old for walk. 80 degrees and very sunny. Legs exposed in stroller for 30 min with no sunblock. Problem?

Maybe,maybe not: Sometimes these kids will get a sunburn from this duration of exposure if in direct sunlight. I like shaded strollers until 6m when sun block does not plug their pores so much that they can overheat. ...Read more

Can a cloth contaminate another cloth? For example put clean Shirts in my couch(i sit with dirty clothes), or sit with my dirty pants on a clean cloth

It's all dirty...: Dirt is everywhere. I bet these types of things routinely cause you great stress and anxiety. You should talk to your doctor about possible OCD. There are medicines and therapies that can help reduce stress in these situations. http://www.helpguide.org/articles/anxiety/obssessive-compulsive-disorder-ocd.htm ...Read more

3.9 year old with autism seems ready for potty training but won't sit on potty long enough. Is the iPotty (potty with iPad stand) a good idea for him?

3.9 year old with autism seems ready for potty training but won't sit on potty long enough. Is the iPotty (potty with iPad stand) a good idea for him?

Do you really want : to pair those behaviors? Once you do, transition to a regular toilet is going to be tough! Use his developmental, not chronological, age, for readiness: Can he stay dry for 2 hrs., walk from room to room, recognize the urge to go, use a word to say so (e.g., potty) & pull his pants up & down? If so, use a Little Looster stool & read " Steps to Independence" by Baker, ~$30 on Amazon.com. ...Read more

Why can I get a handicapped parking placard or permit for driving mom?

Mother is disabled.: The only way that you can obtain a disabled parking permit or placard for your mother is if your mother is medically disabled. You receive the permit for your vehicle because you will be the one driving your mother to and from wherever she is going. You have to fill out a specific form at the department of motor vehicles and the doctor must fill out portions attesting to your mother's disability. ...Read more

15 weeks pregnant. Used lysol cleaning wipes to clean bathrooms. No gloves. Had room fan on, and no windows. Is this ok? Wipes also contain peroxide.

15 weeks pregnant. Used lysol cleaning wipes to clean bathrooms. No gloves. Had room fan on, and no windows. Is this ok? Wipes also contain peroxide.

Cleaning products: Lysol wipes are safe and peroxide used topically is safe as well, i'm not aware of any pregnancy warnings. The fan is helpful and if there are fumes, the window should be open. There are however lots of natural cleaning solutions that you can make yourself that would be safer. ...Read more

Child. Age 3.5yrs. Mass law.   41.4 lbs  how much until she's out of a car seat and in a booster seat in back?

Booster seats: You can safely switch your child to a booster seat if she's at least 4 years old and she weighs 40 pounds or more or has grown too tall for her car seat (when her shoulders are higher than the top set of harness-strap slots in the car seat's back). ...Read more

Can you get an STD from using public bathrooms, showers or a bed in hotel?

Can you get an STD from using public bathrooms, showers or a bed in hotel?

Only by sex!: They're called "sexually transmitted" for good reason. STDs are not simply infections that involve the genitals. The bacteria and viruses that cause them evolved so that they cannot be transmitted by contacts like this -- only by the intimate contact of sex. (If they were so easy to transmit, they would be common without sex and not called STDs!) Don't worry at all about such things. ...Read more
