Please proofread: Hi. I haven't the foggiest what you're talking about. I know that's English, but it wasn't proofread before being submitted. Please reread, edit, and resubmit a question that makes sense, and we'll be happy to try to help. There is no such thing as a calcius, and a five is not a body part. If you don't ask an intelligible question, we can't help. This is word salad. Good luck! ...Read more
I would like to know the temperature that would be dangerous for my grandchild in daycare that is 2 years old for outdoor play. On friday the 13th of january the temperature was 30 or under with strong wind gusts. She does get sick easily.
Many : Many people believe that cold air/weather causes illness, but that is not true. Germs cause illness and the reason why people tend to be sicker in the winter is because they are cooped up inside with other people spreading germs. Going outside and breathing fresh, non-germy air is good for most people. That being said, you don't want children to spend a prolonged period outside in frigid temperatures. Since it is healthy for kids to play outside even when the temperature is cool, many daycares and preschools will allow children to play outside as long as the temperatures are above 30f and the children have proper clothing. It is important that aprents and caregivers make sure each child is appropriately dressed for the activities they will be participating in. If you are concerned, you should call your grandchild's daycare to ask about their weather policy. ...Read more
Is it healthy for a female to shave her genital area? And/or is it looked down on as a bad thing? I went to ma school and everyone in one class was talking of how they did it and how woman should keep that area of the body trimmed and clean and i would li
This : This practice is not necessary for health but it is not harmful either as long as you do not cut yourself doing it. The only reason i can think of to shave there is if your sexual partner would like you to for one reason or another. ...Read more

Little's Area: There is a plexus of vessels in the anterior septum which are fragile and prone to bleed with digital manipulation (nose picking) or even just dry air. Refrain from picking, use a nasal emollient (pharmacist can recommend), keep the air in your home humidified. That should do it. If it persists, see an ENT doc who may cauterize the area. ...Read more
Is there anything we need to do to prepare for our son losing his baby teeth? He just turned five, and i guess the time is not too far away. I remember when i was little i was scared of having them pulled, and would let them stay in my mouth far too long.
Kids : Kids are familiar with growing out of their shoes and their clothes and putting them aside to make room for bigger ones. It shoud be easy for your child to understand that he is outgrowing his baby teeth and that they should be put aside to make room for the bigger, more grown up ones. The tooth fairy thing makes it more fun and something to look forward to. Check the children's section at your local library or book store for one of the many excellent books on the subject geared for 5 year olds. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
When/how can a dr. give more than the recommended amount of meds in the hospital? (It has happened to me and I was fine. It just struck me as odd.)
How often to turn the key on a palate expander? Our son just had a palate expander put in, and we were told we need to turn it once a day. I've also heard once every two weeks, and am worried that once a day might hurt him too much. Is once a day pretty n
You : You should consult your dentist for explanatory instructions, remember your friends are not your child's treating dentist and their input could sometimes destroy the good relationship you may have with your dentist, every case is different, the age plays an important role in the course of treatment and, please call your child's dentist and ask him any doubt you may have. Take it as an advise of a professional who cares about his patients. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Ok I have seen the doctors 2 separate times on this and was told it was a form of staff but I'm not getting how my son would even get this. I change his diaper all the time so it's not like he is dirty down there at all. I thought staff is a life thing on
Staph: Staphylococcal bacteria is everywhere around us. Bullous impetigo in the diaper area, which is blisters caused by staph bacteria is fairly common. It should be able to be treated with antibiotics and an anti bacterial ointment. It has nothing to do with you changing his diaper. If it is persistent, see an infectious disease doctor, to be sure it is not a resistant strain. ...Read more

Once : Once a patient gets susceptible from stress on the body or prior infections, they are more prone to getting repeat viruses during the year. As you have had persistent problems it may be worthwhile to have blood tests performed to be sure you don't have any other medical condition. It sounds like you are eating very healthy, and i assume you don't smoke which increases the risk of infections. You could try also walking a mile or so a day if you are able, as exercise can be helpful in fighting infection. Also please be sure you get a flu shot every year. It is not to late to get one this year as we are having a very late flu season. ...Read more
Does glaucoma cause pain in the eyes as a first symptom? Sometimes if i read too much or spend more time at the computer i feel pressure and pain in my eyes. I asked my friends and they said that nothing similar has happened to them. Could this be first s
When I give birth im worried that I'm gonna push to much and give my self a bleed on the brain from the straining. Is this unlikely to happen?
Unlikely to happen: If on the news there are weekly reports of women dying from exploding blood vessels during childbirth, it's time to worry. Until then, dying is childbirth in a developed country is very unlikely... and is just one of the risks of living on planet Earth. As they say, "Don't sweat the small stuff." One may feel safer by delivering in a hospital that has an intensive care nursery for babies. ...Read more

My friend's house is a disaster with dirt and stuff everywhere. How do I know if she's a "horder" or just a bad housekeeper? The mess seems to be getting worse by the month and she doesn't seem at all disturbed by it.
Semantics: Whatever you call your friend's situation, she needs help and support to overcome it. I know it is difficult but encourage you to talk w/her. If you feel uncomfortable w/the dirt do not go there. She needs to face the consequences. She can visit you. Peace and good health. ...Read moreSee 18 more doctor answers
Is it a good decision to make a circumcision to an 8 years old boy? My son had in two occasions a little irritation in his penis and with the use of a cream prescribed by the dr. Get well. But it is happening more frequently.
So i was thinking if it will
Don't do it: Forgive my frankness. The problem you describe sounds trivial. Circumcision after the newborn period is not a casual choice. You're talking about a major ordeal for a young boy. Even at this age, it's also a decision that should be personal. If junior is forced to undergo this, he may be angry for the rest of his life. Let him wait until he's a teen and decide for himself. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
