My 3 year old son has been potty trained twice--when he was 2 and right before he turned 3. After being happy to use the toilet for months without accidents both times, he suddenly doesn't care anymore and constantly wets his pants. I try to stay positive

Wetting pants: Has there been new changes in his life - new room or bed, absent parent, new baby, death in the family, etc? If so, address and discuss the situation with him. Try not to scold or punish him - just ignore the situation and offer him rewards and positive reinforcement for a dry day. One frequent cause maybe constipation. Monitor frquency of his bowel movements, size and girth of the stool (pellets). ...Read more

When using the bathroom earlier i  had an accident on the toilet seat. I preceded to wipe it up with toilet paper. Will i get hiv. I work at a school.

From yourself?: Do you believe you can get an infection from yourself? From the accident you had? Do you really believe that HIV lives on surfaces and can infect through skin? Hiv is not in any way of any concern in the scenario you describe. Hiv in not caught through skin. It is caught from direct semen or blood to your internal crevices and tissues. ...Read more

While using the bathroom i bent over to pick up something off of the floor.U doing this i accidently touch the toilet with my mouth. Will i get hiv.

While using the bathroom i bent over to pick up something off of the floor.U  doing this i accidently touch the toilet with my mouth. Will i get hiv.

Unlikely: Is there someone else who uses that toilet who has hiv? If not-there is no worry. Hiv is of very low infectivity and requires human to human contact. Most with HIV are on treatment which lowers, sometimes to zero, the viral count making transmission unlikely. Hiv usually quickly dies on a toilet seat but would require the virus to be on the skin. All of these are unlikely. No worry. ...Read more

Hi, I am 27 weeks pregnant. I accidently poured bleach into my toilet bowl with urine. Urine contain ammonia. Would it harm my unborn baby?

No: Obviously, this was a mistake without consequences to the fetus at this point. The advice is similar to former President Bill Clinton's response to smoking marijuana, "he didn't inhale" As long as you didn't inhale the vapors for a prolonged period of time and exercised that handle on the side of the toilet to flush, no worries. Please tell your treating OB MD of this question for his/her advice. ...Read more
