Q: 

A: Yes, it is possible that extreme skin itching is caused due to stress and anxiety. It is called ''neurodermatitis''. You can use local treatment via a corticosteroid balsam. If the skin is infected, the balsam should contain antibiotics in addition to corticosteroids. For anxiety you can seek a doctor‚??s consultation and prescription for temporary use of anxiolytics (ie. deazepam). .vt_bottom_post_links a {color:black;}.vt_bottom_post_links a.rep_link {color:red;} document.write(''Tell a Friend''); | document.write(''Report''); Did you find this post helpful?

Q: 

Lyme Disease & Toxoplasmosis

A: Hi, Stephanie... No, toxoplasmosis & Lyme disease don"t normally come as a "set."  Toxoplamosis is a parasite contracted from cat feces, undercooked meat and some other sources. Lyme is a bacteria contracted from a tick, mosquito, or flea. I copied the following from the Centers for Disease Control website for your benefit and the benefit of anyone else who comes across this: What is toxoplasmosis? A single-celled parasite called Toxoplasma gondii causes a disease known as toxoplasmosis. While the parasite is found throughout the world, more than 60 million people in the United States may be infected with the Toxoplasma parasite. Of those who are infected, very few have symptoms because a healthy person"s immune system usually keeps the parasite from causing illness. However,...

Q: 

When should I take son back to doc for fever?

A: at 102.8, your child could be developing brain damage. I would take him to the emergency room. his fever needs to come down now. My cousin used to get sick allot. The Dr''s didn''t seem to care unless the fever was about 104. Then we''d call and they''d tell us to put him in a cool bath to take the fever own. Like we couldn''t figure that out on our own. I''d say if he reaches 104, and seems not to be taking in enough fluids, and especially if it''s in combination with diarrhea. I think your plan for day 10 sounds like a plan. You have reasonable parental concern, especially if you are not seeing a drop in temperature or an overall improvement. I hope he''s feeling better soon. I am also a teacher so I do understand, but your childs health is the most important thing. Depending on the...


Q: 

Does candida impose highest problems?

A: Candida albicans is a commonly occuring yeast. Most people, expecially women, are colonized beside it without it cause any problems. Normally growth is kept in check by the presence of "good" microbes and the person''s healthy immune system. For instance, most women own yeast in their vaginas, but the presence of a bacterium call Lactobacillus creates an acid environment, which prevents the yeast from growing too much. If something happen to kill bad the Lactobacillus, such as the use of antibiotics, the pH of the vagina will rise (become less acidic) and will create a wonderful environment for the growth of yeast. The yeast will "overgrow" and bring over, causing a distasteful infection. A common treatment for vaginal...


Q: 

My acid reflux causes me pain and irritaion everyday!!!!!!

A: Hello Chris, I am so sorry you are having daily symptoms without relief. It is challenging without insurance because often it takes multiple trips to the doctor or specialist to get a diagnosis and treatment in place. Here are some strategies to consider:   A post nasal drip or cough can trigger reflux. Food allergies and intolerances may trigger reflux symptoms too. A change of diet or a strict elimination diet may help you see a relationship between the foods you eat and symptoms. An elimination diet takes a great deal of effort and you may need to be on it for 2 or more weeks before you know which foods are causing symptoms.   Show the pharmacist all of your medications (over the counter and prescription) to look for interactions and GI side...


Q: 

PLEASE HELP my daughters fever wont go away! keeps coming back PLEASE HELP

A: Take your daughter back to the doc, or even the ER and insist on a blood culture. You need to know exactly what this is, as that will affect recovery and after-effects. All they need to do to diagnose Strep is a throat swab, I can''t believe the doc didn''t do this. I mean a strep throat looks angry and red, so does tonsillitis, so does just about any type of throat bug. And the assistant diagnosed the rash OVER THE PHONE? Strep is not a minor thing, and you can''t have your daughter running this temp for days on end. Best thoughts with you, Sera hi and thanks for responding, is a blood culture an actual blood test? or a throat culture? I know the regular culture is done in the office is the blood test dont there too, I am calling my doc but they are still closed.. we dont have medical...


Q: 

alopecia areata

A: Hi Kate, Thanks for writing.  I have to confess that I didn"t know much about Alopecia Areata until I looked it up and read a little bit about it.  Mainstream medicine seems to think the cause is an abnormality of the immune system in which it actually attacks the hair follicles.  But personally, common sense tells me that if your immune system is going to start attacking hair follicles, then why does it only attack in small patches?  Wouldn"t it make sense that your entire body would become hairless?  Just a thought.   I am not familiar with any type of cure, and I can"t seem to find any information that suggests a cure for it even exists.  But I did find a couple of websites that offer products that guarantee hair growth, and to get rid of the...


Q: 

Toddler w/high fever/ rash all over that''s turning purple

A: Hi Lipsforchrist, If I am understanding correctly she has had 5 days of high fevers now. She has swollen lymph nodes and a rash. Does she have any redness of her eyes? Does she have any redness or dryness/cracking of her lips/mouth? Does she have any redness or skin changes of her palms and soles? I am concerned that she may have a condition called Kawasaki''s disease which is a vasculitis that needs to be treated with a medicine called IVIG. This disease can cause problems with the coronary arteries. early treatment can help prevent these complications (sometimes). Based on what you have said, she has 3 out of 6 criteria for the disease (fever for 5 days, rash, lymph node swelling). One generally needs 5 out of 6 to make the formal...


Q: 

A: Hello and welcome to e health forum. Nosebleeds can be dramatic and frightening. Luckily, most nosebleeds are not serious and can be handled fairly easily. Nosebleeds tend to occur during winter months and in dry, cold climates. Most common conditions that predispose a person to nosebleeds include: exposure to warm, dry air ‚??for prolonged periods of time, nasal and sinus infections, allergic rhinitis, nasal foreign body (object ‚??stuck in the nose), vigorous nose blowing and constant nose picking. Severe stress and anxiety also is a important factor. A minor nosebleed that has stopped may require no treatment at all. Frequently, the body will form a ‚??clot at the site of the bleeding that stops any further bleeding. ‚?? When you have...
