Probably too late: to do anything about it. Asking on Healthtap is not what I would advise in an emergency = there are poison control center hotlines in every city. If this friend drank phenol, even a bottlecap full may be highly toxic and s/he needs to go to the nearest emergency department, preferably in a Trauma Center if that is available. Since it is caustic, and may be combined with acids it needs expert care ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It is on floors, door handles, shopping carts, etc. It is found in 70% of the pustules or abscesses treated as outpatients.Perhaps knowing he had an infection with it will remind you to wash your hands more. You are at risk of MRSA every day. Try not to treat him like an EBOLA carrier. Good regular hand washing should be enough. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How can I help my friend with anorexia? I suspect my friend is anorexic. What are some of the tell tale signs, and at what point would she need to hospitalized?
Anorexia : Anorexia is a very difficult disease to detect and manage. People with the disorder become very good at hiding their vomiting behavior, etc. Some telltale signs are significant tooth discoloration or damage to teeth (from repetitive vomiting), rapid weight loss, aversion to eating/avoidance of food, hair falling out/brittle, sunken eyes. However, all of these happen late in the disease process. As for when to hospitalize, it is usually for dehydration (from vomiting or laxative abuse). This leads to electrolyte imbalances which can been dangerous. Otherwise, hospitalizations are for when the patients become so malnourished and weak, that they can't function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Check for pregnancy: Women who have sex do get pregnant. So, one has to be ready to be a mom and a wife, or not have sex (because contraception is not 100% effective). One can do a home pregnancy test if more than 3 weeks after sex, or missing one's normal regular period. If pregnant, one can go to a women's health clinic, or similar clinic, farther away from home. Also, most moms are helpful even if they get angry. ...Read more
