No: This is just one more bit of folklore. Instead, i'd urge you to have your acne treated scientifically. If two weeks on benzoyl peroxide has not worked, or you have acne on your trunk, get with your physician. A topical or systemic antibiotic will usually clear you, or for severe / cystic acne, a dermatology consultation is in order. ...Read more
Is it true if you take senna with not enough water it will make it difficult to have a bowel movement?
Probably not: Senna is a stimulant laxative; so unless the body is dehydrated, senna should not constipate. Fiber laxatives/supplements, however, do require extra fluid intake to prevent constipation, for they absorb water from the bowel to soften stool; if available fluid is inadequate, stool will be firm. ...Read more
I don't get enough fluids because i'm not thirsty or am too busy to remember to drink. Is it better to drink unhealthy drinks than nothing at all?
Find a way: Asking a doctor to allow you to make a bad choice is not reasonable. Set a reminder on your smart-phone or prepare the night before bottles of water to drink is the way to go. If you don't drink enough fluids, you increase your risk for kidney stones, bad breath, constipation, etc. Put a rubber band on your wrist to remind yourself to drink, but find a way to get at least 50 ounces a day of fluid. ...Read more

My sympathies: Pregnancy can be very tough on a women, especially in the last few weeks. Try a warm bath, sleeping with pillows between your legs and behind you back as well as under the "hump." massage is generally ok - check with your doctor. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is also ok for the various aches and pains. Try some pelvic rock exercises and perhaps a maternity girdle. Fortunately, this will not last forever. :). ...Read more
Usually not.: Overdistension of the stomach usually does not lead to rupture, unless there is some external force that compresses an already distended stomach. Of course if there has been some injury to the stomach that has caused a weakened area in the wall then it is likely to tear in this area if stretched too tightly. Most times the distension of the stomach will become uncomfortable enough that you stop ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it bad to eat Quaker instant oatmeal? Is that true? They say it's bad because it does not need to cook, it only just hot water.
Opinions differ: Dear Sir: Many seem to think that the instant oatmeals are not good for you because of many reasons but then they are really not bad if you use boiling water as this actually will cook the oatmeal that is there. It is better to eat this than to not eat at all and eat other foods that are worse for you. There are better choices but you will be fine eating this off and on. ...Read more
