I'm seeing a girl for the 2nd time this weekend.Could not get hard with her the first time i'm nervous it will happen again.Im very attracted to her?
What's the Rush?: There is much more to intimacy than being physical. You state that you have only known her for one date ... What's the rush? I recommend you both get to know each other. You will both know when the time is right. Remember, the most important organ in love making is found between your ears ... Your brain. ...Read more

From a dermatologist stand point at what age should a woman start wearing antiaging products... And what should we start out with?
Skin Aging products: The first thing you should start with is sun screen and physical protection or shading from the sun. This should start as a baby. If you have good protection from the sun all your life, then you will have much less need for antiaging skin products later. Botox injections are most effective when started before you develop wrinkles, too. ...Read more

Can you get a naturally caused cancer if it doesn't run in your family? I don't have cancer, but i'm curious as to whether you can get cancer if it doesn't run in your family. Excluding cancer caused from unnatural causes such as smoking.

Is it possible to keep living independently with age-related macular degeneration? I've just been diagnosed with wet macular degeneration. I'm only 50, and don't want to have to move into assisted living or a nursing home any time soon. How long can I rea
You : You are a bit young for a diagnoses of the typical macular degeneration, but does happen. You are fortunate it is 2012 and that we have outstanding treatments available (i would expect even better treatments to emerge during your lifetime as well). As you know, macular degeneration can impact the central vision. This is what we use for reading - this is the type of vision that one also needs for driving (one needs 20/40 in one eye to drive with an unrestricted license. One usually needs 20/70 in one eye for daytime privileges). While macular degeneration can move vision to less than 20/70 in some patients, i virtually see no patients with it who cannot care for themselves and live independently. Remain optimistic and see your eye doctor if you note vision changes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Like Tyra banks, who use to be a supermodel, should I start using vasaline all over my body after a shower to help prevent/delay signs of aging?
No: Um, the celebs don't always do the best things :) vaseline is not going to delay aging and is not the best product to apply to your body for moisturizing. Try a basic quality moisturizer for your body; there are other choices for facial care. You can see your dermatologist or a good aesthetician. ...Read more

I hear that using tissue to wipe after urination is bad for your healthy. It is said that we should only wash it by water. Do we also need to dry it?
Nothing wrong...: It is nothing wrong to use tissue to tap & soak the last lingering drops of urine, which is effective and simple, especially in some with postvoid dribbling, which could be helped with urethral milking for men and draining the possible drops in the introitus by leaning forward. More? Ask experts like urologists for specifics and details. ...Read more

If you scrub your face with an exfoliant that's a bit too harsh, if brojen veins were to appear would this be seen mmediately or take weeks?
Scrub: Both are possible but broken veins are not usually the problem unless the area was really traumatized. There was a facial scrub that had apricot pit fragments in it. These little hard particles caused gouges on the skin and resulted in scarring. Be gentle on your face. Blackheads are not due to dirt. The brown color is oxidized lipid in the follicle. ...Read more
