My ears aren't producing any wax and are constantly itchy- sometimes not so bad but other times I can barely concentrate on anything else! What is it?
Hard to say.: If you use Q-tips stop them. Avoid all fragrances and aerosols in environment, because they are skin & respiratory tract irritants (and add to the environmental allergy burden).

My doctor said yellow vaginal discharge is a old discharge. Its normal if it has no smell and no itchiness. Its it true?? I'm so confused. Pls help me
What your doctor: Said is true in general. Red flags for a vaginal infection (as opposed to normal vaginal secretions) include a strong or bad odor, watery discharge, irritation, itching and other uncomfortable symptoms. If you have just a small amount of discharge without a bad odor or itching, then most likely you don't have a vaginal infection. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne. ...Read more
