Nephroptosis : Nephroptosis is also called a “sagging kidney”. The kidney could be floating or loose and as a result it can drop down lower in the abdominal cavity. Nephroptosis can be asymptomatic or it can cause problems like urinary tract infections (having a urgent need to go or having to urinate more often). Sometimes it can be a cause for nausea, vomiting, constipation or a full or heavy feeling abdomen. Sometimes it can even lead to problems with sleep or dizziness. It is good that you are having him thoroughly evaluated. ...Read more

What to do if I got quite red irritated skin and I just want to get skin like a babies bottom, obviously not the smell and nappy rash, as this wouldit!?

Baby skin: No, you probably don't want baby bottom skin!! Haha. Keep your skin clean, avoiding harsh soaps (including antibacterial soaps) and chemical irritants. Use SUNSCREEN!! If your skin is dry and irritated, use a good moisturizer regularly- no perfumes or colors. Don't scratch and pick at your skin. See your doctor for a regular check of your skin, especially for any moles, etc. that change. ...Read more

Why did my 3 1/2 mo old breast fed babies poop smell different (almost a medicinal smell!) when on erythromycin eye ointment for eye infection?

Why did my 3 1/2 mo old breast fed babies poop smell different (almost a medicinal smell!) when on erythromycin eye ointment for eye infection?

Hard to say: This could be a situation where antibiotic somehow got on the baby's hand and made its way into the GI tract, OR, possibly something you are eating in your diet could be affecting the poop. The only thing that will prove what caused this is whether the funny poop smell is gone after the eye treatment is stopped for a week or so... ...Read more

It : It most likely does not mean that you have a health problem. It is most likely more related to body secretions from intercourse. Normally there are increased body secretions during sexual relations so that may be what you are noticing. If you had unusual discharge, fever, or anything that made you think you have an infection then you should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

My 2 month baby has red line on her neck, it smells bad, what is it and how can it be treated?

My 2 month baby has red line on her neck, it smells bad, what is it and how can it be treated?

This sounds like it: may just be irritation from sweating and the folds of skin on a baby's neck rubbing. It could also be a yeast skin infection from the moisture in that area.You can try keeping the area drier by putting a little cornstarch based baby powder in the area (but shake it into your hand first, then put in on the neck.) If she has a fever or the line is worsening you should take her to her pediatrician. ...Read more

What does it mean when you start to have your period but it smells bad like death  with black goo?

What a description!: One of the first things i look for when a woman complains of really bad vaginal odor is a lost tampon! sometimes a tampon is placed in the vagina, the string gets tucked inside, and a woman can forget it's there. After a while, the odor can be quite strong. But it's also possible that there's an infection present, and it would be very wise to have this checked by your doctor. Good luck.

What does it mean to have stool that looks like powder is very loose and smells bad? I've been experiencing this for months now....

Hard to visualize?: To describe your stool as looking like powder and being loose is a little confusing...looseness often suggests watery. Perhaps you mean the powder isn't sticking together! My general thought is that your stool is too dry...you are not drinking enough fluids, especially water, or stool is passing very quickly through your intestine so it doesn't absorb. Try increasing water (a lot!). Then, to Doc:) ...Read more
