Why do I have pore like bumps when squeezed filled with solid white substance?

Solid bloody substance came out of my vagina!? Just delivered.

Solid bloody substance came out of my vagina!? Just delivered.

Hard to say: If you just delivered, it could be clots, or other parts of the placenta if it was not completely delivered. I would presume that your obstetrician delivered the placenta whole, but if not, then you can pass it. Generally, retained placenta causes moderate to severe bleeding, so if it is not, then mention it to your ob, but do not worry on it.

I scratch a bump that looks like pimple on my nose a white small solid subtance came out. And the hole is quite big where the substance came off. Y??

Just a pimple: The plug of sebum can be big enough to stretch the pore. A couple of warm showers will help it get back to normal. Try very hard not to scratch. Can get infected.

I took too much miralax (polyethylene glycol) now I have been on the toilet for 6 hrs it started as a solid now is a grity water substance... what is wrong?

I took too much miralax (polyethylene glycol) now I have been on the toilet for 6 hrs it started as a solid now is a grity water substance... what is wrong?

New diet and wait!: Miralax (polyethylene glycol) is an osmotic laxative, which means it draws water into the gut to soften stool to aid in producing a bowel movement. Try a BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast) to help reform stools and reduce diarrhea. Symptoms should begin to resolve with this. Consider adding OTC Imodium, this time according to the label directions:) Drink water to replace the fluids you have lost. Take Care

Discharge from eyes: It is not possible to make an accurate diagnosis with limited information on this forum. The symptoms you describe are consistent with conjunctivitis which is most often viral, but can be bacterial. One needs to be examined to be sure there is no other lesion in the eye that could be associated. Please go see a doctor for a proper examination, diagnosis, and treatment recommendation.

My daughter is 5 months and 2 weeks old. She has been eating solids since 4 months. Can I give her baby snacks (i.E veggie sticks, etc) she doesn't crawl?

My daughter is 5 months and 2 weeks old. She has been eating solids since 4 months. Can I give her baby snacks (i.E veggie sticks, etc) she doesn't crawl?

No. Still too young.: Babies around 6-8 months are breast feeders or bottle feeders, with pureed (or very mashed up) foods just for treats or learning experiences, but not as big parts of their diet. Babies don't chew food even after their first birthdays. Solid foods are too risky, and even so-called teething biscuits tend to choke babies. If trying such finger foods before 18 months, learn to do baby CPR first!
