Baby umbilical hernia swollen, will this give any problem and any pain to baby due to swollen? And will this stay swollen even when my baby grow up.

It depends.: Hernias in infants are not uncommon, and often close on their own. Your pediatrician should evaluate it as the baby grows to see if it is still present.

Since you have been doing so early I would recommend evaluation by your obgyn to make sure everything is ok ...Read more

Studies investigated the introduction of talc on talc dusted diaphragms and condoms and concluded that it was not likely the cause. Correlation, not causation. The USPST recommends women get their pap smear and genetic testing and because HPV is associated with cervical cancer. See OB/GYN. ...Read more
