Swine Flu: When should I keep my kids home?

A: I should say, as a parent, you have complete justification in keeping your child home from school due to this predicament. Children, from what I understand, are more susceptible to the virus, or at least have less powerful immune systems. I agree - kids go to school sick. The parents use the schools as babysitters, and I rarely got a day off when I was sick as a kid, not only because of my parents not being able to stay home, but because the school policy was very strict on tests and such. Considering the vast number of people in close proximity at a school, I don''t think you are being too overprotective on this one. I would say that the risks seem slim if there are no confirmed cases in your area, and you should...


Which soap should I buy for hand washing? why?

A: I would recommend getting a hand soap that is NOT antibacterial. I know that sounds strange but if we keep using antibacterial products and over prescribing antibiotics when not needed the bacteria will eventually become immune and then we''ll have a real problem ''super bacteria'' that is immune to everything we have to kill it. ''softsoap'' in the pump . or get a crystal stone bar. 2 best choices in my opinion. Dove bar soap...


persistent pinworm infection - please help --------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you have experience or knowledge about pinworms, please read.I have had pinworms since the last July. (The main culprit is bad meat.) The initial infection was heavy enough to realize I had pinworms, and I was treated with medication. The next day, they were gone and I was ready to forget about the whole thing. I took the second dosage (even the third and the fourth just to be safe) but after a month or so, they came back. I was treated with different medications several times, but nothing worked. Now the thing is, I have never felt anything like the itchiness of the initial infection. But I do get this tiny, tingly feeling down there, like a worm just moved. And I know it''s not caused by a rash. It''s a very unique, particular feeling, like something wet just slided. I read there are other people who are experiencing exactly the same thing: tingly sensation around the anus, some of the symptoms but no itching.For the last six months I have felt the same thing over and over again. It continues on, subsides for a few days -probably due to my multiple attacks-, 2-3 days at least, 1 week the most, but right when I start rejoicing and celebrating, it starts again. What is the reason for this? why don''t I get intense itching if I keep reinfecting myself? - there were periods where I did nothing to fight them, and the infection did not intensify- I really need an explanation. I eat everything I should during a pinworm infection (pumpkin seeds, garlic -there is not a day I don''t eat at least 8 cloves of garlic-, spices -I never cook anything without adding my fav. spices, one of which is curry-, carrots). I became a hygiene freak, I wear masks and gloves in the toilet, and wash my hands with disinfectant, but they simply won''t leave me. I also have some of the symptoms like that weird mouth odour I had during the first infection, mouth problems, stomach pain, and weight loss. But none of these are intense enough to convince my parents I still have them. I will have the scotch tape test done soon. But meanwhile, I''m searching for herbal treatments. I hear Clarkia is really good. Anyone ever used that and got good results? I have put all my hope in that product.This is supposed to be a child disease. It''s supposed to be treated with two dosage of any anti-pinworm meds out there. I don''t understand it, and it''s driving me mad. I''m absolutely horrified at the notion of being one of those people who say "I''ve had them for the last 30 years!". Please help.

A: get to the doctor... they may have you bring a sample with you... i doubt they will do the tape test(it''s not accurate)...


Does washing your hands really help prevent the spread of the flu virus?

A: Because your hands are what is in contact with others. It is also what you touch everything with. By eliminating your hand germs you also eliminate you rubbing the germs in your eyes or mouth. Yes, washing your hands helps the spread of the flu virus and other viruses as well. As a rule of thumb, I always wash my hands thoroughly with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds when I get home after being out. I make extra sure that I do not rub my eyes, touch my mouth or nose before doing so. The germs on the hands are very easily transmitted through openings in the body. There are other methods to help prevent the spread of the flu. If you...


why am I breaking out?

A: There could be many reasons for your current "break out"--stress, hormonal changes. These changes can only be addressed by a physician. Before spending hundreds of dollars on dematologists, I suggest you change the cleanser you have been using. From the age of 13 to 17, I fought pimples. my mother took me to a half-dozen dermatologists who had me cut my hair very short, shampoo three times a day with a shampoo available only through prescription, and alleviate all fried foods from my diet. I still had pimples. When I started college at 18, someone suggested I cleanse my face with Noxema and dabbing a glob of Noxema on rising pimples. I did, and my pimples...
