You can decide if the rack is worth keeping. The towel....no problem. Just disinfect in the wash. ...Read more

16 week pregnant. Raid roach spray to spray into a kitchen cabinet ( closed the door immediately and left the kitchen 5 mins after). I am worried.
Probably ok: A brief exposure like this is probably not going to cause any problems or hurt your baby. Your body is well equipped to metabolize toxic substances that you might encounter briefly and eliminate them before they reach your baby. You did the right thing by leaving the room, as it is generally a good idea to avoid such exposures to the extent that it is possible. Raid is minimally toxic to humans ...Read more

Yes: Tanning is not safe and is not recommended for anyone. It increases the risk of skin cancer and accelerates facial and body aging. Sunscreen with titanium and zinc can help protect you from uva and uvb rays, but avoiding sun exposure is best. Spray tanning and tanning lotions are a reasonable alternative to achieve a bronzed look, but they may not be safe for pregnant/ lactating women. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Skin cancer: We were all better off aspiring to the magnolia skin of the antebellum Southern belle.

No: I am really sorry that someone troubled you over this. You are young and you have a praiseworthy concern for your health.

I am sixteen ans i want to go tanning for prom i just don't know what to do whether spray tanning or in a bed tanning? I know tanning in a bed causes cancer but if i just go for like 2 weeks everyother day will it hurt
Yes, : Yes, it will. Studies have shown that people who have never gone to a tanning bed have less skin cancer than people who have ever gone. Even just a few times. Ask around and find out who does good spray tans in your area. No ill health effects from a spray tan at all. Once prom is over with, you might want to pick up a few different self tanners and test them on yourself to see if you can find one that you like and works well for you (i wouldn't do this right before prom though). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Urethral stricture?: You can't get around the main point of my reply to this question a few days ago: you need to see a doctor and follow his or her advice. It might not be anything serious, but you must not take the chance there is a partial obstruction (stricture) in your urethra, which could be dangerous if not diagnosed and, if necessary, treated. You'll never get a firm answer on this or any forum or website. ...Read more
I got scabies and i put on the elamite on washed all bedding and clothes and sprayed down bed and furniture so why is it that i still itch really bad?
Itch lasts: Even though you have treated yourself and the environment, your body still has to get rid of the dead mites that are left under your skin after treatment. This can take weeks to months to settle down the inflammatory reaction that takes place under the skin when you are infected with scabies. Try an oral antihistamine for the itching and oatmeal baths. ...Read more

Maybe temporarily: But i would suggest that you see a dermatologist to determine the cause of your hypopigmentation. There are multiple metabolic and immunologic etiologies which can cause hypopigmentation and it may be in your best interest to get to the root cause rather than merely covering it up cosmetically. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
