My niece has smallpox and I have a new born (6days) can she catch the smallpox? Knowing we live in the same house. What can I do to keep the infant safe

The virus is basically impossible to transmit in the home except through honest-to-goodness sex or needle-sharing. ...Read more

Does eczema weep on babies face or is weeping impetigo? My 3 month old has been on mupirocin the past 9 days. Still inflamed and weeping off and on.

Does eczema weep on babies face or is weeping impetigo? My 3 month old has been on mupirocin the past 9 days. Still inflamed and weeping off and on.

Weeping skin: Both eczema and impetigo can weep. Unfortunately they can also go together. Impetigo should have improved at least somewhat with Mupirocin cream. For eczema, just using Mupirocin cream is not sufficient to improve the inflammation, so other meds need to be added. Please talk to you dermatologist about additional treatments for eczema. Also applying cool soaks even for a minute prior to meds helps. ...Read more

A tension-pneumothorax is when the contents of the chest (heart, lung, collapsed lung) all shift to one side. Typically this is life threatening because blood cannot flow well.
