Sunburn prevention: Don't forget sunglasses, and to avoid exposure between 10AM-4PM. Umbrellas help, too. Remember the shade moves with the sun, especially if a child is in a shaded stroller. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/sunburn/basics/prevention/con-20031065 ...Read more

Atopic dermatitis, scalp really itchy, when used baby shampoo, got worse, w hat should I do?

Don't use baby shamp: Baby shampoo is TERRIBLE for an itchy scalp. It is the wrong pH. The pH keeps it from burring little eyes, but it is not good for your hair. Probably made it worse. Selsun Blue is a better choice. There are also prescriptions that a physician could prescribe ...Read more

How do I know ifs hat to dress my newborn in when going outside?

How do I know ifs hat to dress my newborn in when going outside?

Depends: Newborns have a greater portion of their body mass & surface in their head than older kids & can loose a greater amount of body heat from exposed surfaces. If it is cold outside it is reasonable to cover the head. If it is hot, it is important not to cover up so the baby can perspire & self regulate their temperature. If u feel a wetness behind the neck, baby is getting a bit too hot. ...Read more

Hat are antioxidents and what are they good for?

Hat are antioxidents and what are they good for?

Still in testing: It is a general feeling that there is molecular damage in the body from breakdown products of oxygen termed "free-radicals". These are highly reactive chemicals which might cause aging and other damage. Anti oxidants reduce this risk by binding and chemically neutralizing these free radicals. However no good testing has proven this; experiments are being run however. ...Read more

In pain, from not being able to use the bathroom. W hat should I take, or what diet I should do?

Rectal pain relief: Docusate (per pdr) helps moisten & soften hard, dry stools. It is not a true laxative, but facilitates natural defecation, usually within 12 to 72 hours. This is safe & available for anyone over 2, & assumes normal GI anatomy without inflammation, stenosis, extrinsic or instrinsic obstruction. Change in bowels is a "red flag", like weight loss or blood in stool, that needs evaluation if persistent. ...Read more

I wore a a fully dressed lumber jack hard hat for 8 yrs and had trouble with my neck. Could the added 5-6lbs have done any damage?

I wore a a fully dressed lumber jack hard hat for 8 yrs and had trouble with my neck. Could the added 5-6lbs have done any damage?

Neck pain: It is certainly possible that the added weight of the hard hat resulted in increased stress to the cervical spine which would result in earlier degenerative changes than expected. X-rays or MRI would help to document any physiologic changes. ...Read more

Is wearing SPF 30+ enough protection? Do I really need a hat everyday or is that only recommended? Will fluorescent lights also cause flare-ups?

Is wearing SPF 30+ enough protection? Do I really need a hat everyday or is that only recommended? Will fluorescent lights also cause flare-ups?

What condition?: If you mean Polymorphic Light Eruption, then you will need to avoid exposure to lights which trigger your problem. SPF 30 is sufficient for partial sun protection but should be applied about 45 mins prior to exposure and every 2 hrs thereafter when exposed to the sun. Wearing a hat with wide brim is always a good idea. I still don't know whether you have lupus or something else. ...Read more

Sir my husband has a doubt on me he is asking a medical certificate hat I have not committed mistake related to sex, is any any test regarding this.

No: There is no test to prove that you have had sex in the past. Even a physical exam cannot be certain. Tell your husband that this physician recommends he start trusting you if he wants to have a good marriage. A GOOD man will honor and respect a woman. A man who cannot, does not deserve to have a wife. ...Read more
