Small abscess?: Difficult to say without a pic, but you may have a small abscess that is draining. If so, the area would be red in addition to being tender.

I am 16 and never started my period. I have vaginal discharge but it looks a lot like very dark green mucus and smells really bad. Is that normal?

I am 16 and never started my period. I have vaginal discharge but it looks a lot like very dark green mucus and smells really bad. Is that normal?

No: Primary amenorrhoea: menses have not occurred by the time of the expected menarche. This may be taken as age 14 years in the absence of secondary sexual characteristics; however, it is worth waiting until age 16 years if other features are developing normally. Http://patient.

Persistent cough: A typical upper respiratory viral infection (or cold) typically can last for up to 7-10 days. Beyond this timeframe, it is reasonable to consider other possibilities such as bacterial bronchitis, pneumonia, sinus infection etc. Recommend seeing a physician if this continues as more information would be needed to guide further advice/treatment. ...Read more

My 6 month old baby boys diaper smells afterhe pees. This happens ifwe leave diaper unchanged for sometime. Is it normal?

My 6 month old baby boys diaper smells afterhe pees. This happens ifwe leave diaper unchanged for sometime. Is it normal?

Sounds normal...: Urine certainly can have an ammonia-like smell and will be more pronounced after time has gone by and some of the water evaporates making what remains in the diaper more concentrated. If you are noticing pain with urination (crying at the time), blood, or fevers - see the pediatrician to ensure no UTI. Otherwise, be prompt with diaper changes to help prevent skin irritation. ...Read more

8wk old formula fed, whether 1 urination in diaper or a full diaper baby's pee smells...a concern? Or is that normal? Baby eats very well!

8wk old formula fed, whether 1 urination in diaper or a full diaper baby's pee smells...a concern? Or is that normal? Baby eats very well!

Any other symptoms?: And what does it smell like? Fishy? Mousy? Sweaty feet? Fruity? Just very strong? Odd urine odor may be caused by accumulation of smelly metabolic precursors or byproducts or possibly UTI with urea-splitting bacteria. In a healthy, asymptomatic, and thriving baby who is growing well, without fevers or vomiting, it's likely ok, but you should call your pediatrician so they can ask more questions. ...Read more

I have a mucous like liquid, passively seeping out of my anus. It's clear and smells like wet cow manure. What could this be?

Duplicate question: Occasional incontinence of stool with fecal leakage is common, but loss of bowel control particularly without warning may signal a significant infection, inflammatory problem, maldigestive concern, or neurologic disorder.

I'm 6 weeks pregnant and having lots of mucus mostly clear and white no bad smell. One big chunk came out. Do I need to be worried?

Not at this time: Most pregnancies at 6 weeks are pretty much on auto pilot. In the absence of bleeding and/or significant cramping one should be reassured. Some mucous discharge can increase with pregnancy. The "clump" is likely the collection of mucous in the vagina that is passed all at once. ...Read more

My son is two yrs old and his diapers smell really bad and he's been peeing more often. It's a weekend should I be worried? Should he go to the er?

Possible UTI: Is he crying or acting in any way different than usual? Is the urine more concentrated or discolored than usual?
