Hello,
I have been experiencing left sided nipple itching..it has been quite a long time, three months but not sure. I feel an urge to scratch it and it happens any time and any position. Why is it? I feel no lump inside. Can you please help me figure it out?

Someone please help me! I'm 14 and a couple days ago I got a pimple just on the outside of my vaginal region but not on the flaps or anything. I left it alone but I don't know what to do. I know I shouldn't pop it from what I have read. BUT my mother suggests putting a pouch full of warm water on it for it to pop itself. I don't think this would be the right thing to do, and she isn't listening to me. So someone help me please! What do i do?

Hi,
I recently noticed that I had pain in my right testicle about a week ago with pain in my lower back, groin and abdomen. I recently did a self check and noticed a small circular lump on the top of my testicle. It's pretty hard and not squishy at all plus I believe it to be attached to the testicle as I tried to carefully grab it just to see if it was moveable. However I don't know if it is in the epididymis or beside it( I think it's right beside it on the top) I'm sure however that the lump is connected to the testicle and pretty hard. The lump itself is not painful but whenever I touch the testicle there is a lot of pain that I cannot locate the source of( hard to explain) the testicle also feels quite tender and I believe it has shrunk a little in size as it was my larger testicle and now feels smaller than the other one. In TC is there always swelling or can it decrease in size? Can someone help me out with this. I plan to go to the Doc next week. Thanks

I had 3 weeks of heavy bleeding. But after taking pills. I think they helped and the bleeding has stopped. After I got sent for a ct scan. They found a cyst on my right ovary. Measuring. 3.2 x 3 x 3. 7 cm seems uncomplicated and a nabothian cyst 2. 4 x 2 cm in my cervix and a fibroid 2. 7 x 2cm in my left lateral uterine wall. The gynae recommended full abdominal hysterectomy. I'm wondering if it can be done laporoscopically? To avoid the major surgery and long recovery time. I'm 50. So I don't really need the parts anymore. Thanking you.

For the past 2-3 years I have what can best be described as a bulge on my lower left abdomen, just above my hip. I have intermittent, moderate pain that radiates to my lower ribs and navel. I am male, aged 30.

My sister is 17 plus. She started getting her periods at around age 14. She was extremely active in sports till 2 years ago. Since past 2 years she is not been active in sports. Also her period cycle has shortened to 20-21 days since around then. If any exertion during the month as in rigorous dance etc prepones it still more at times to 18 days only.
What should I do?? Please advise
Thankyou

I had a small white bumps underneath the skin on my testicles and I drained it with a needle by myself. I also squeezed the rest by hand.and a white smelly puss came out later on they came back and the one I popped with the needle came back huge and its verry hard and hurts a little when I squeeze. The huge white bumb doesn't move and there's no pain. Should I go to doctor ? Its on my left testicle on top where I can see it

drugs.com - Enhancin - Drugs.com According to this it is an international drug that can have four different drugs in it. The drug options are amoxicillin (an antibiotic), amoxicillin trihydrate (related to amoxicillin), clavulanic acid (it is an antibiotic), and clavulanic acid potassium.
So Enhancin is then a drug that can fight infections since it a penicillin antibiotic.
Here is a website that tells you more about Enhancin: https://www.1mg.com/drugs/enhancin-500mg-125mg-tablet-267951

A friend of mine took cocaine (4-5 grams) on Tuesday the 27th of December 2016, and he has a drug test on the 20th of January. It was taken with lots of alcohol at the time, he has only consumed alcohol just once since taking cocaine. He has been drinking plenty of fluids since. He's not a frequent cocaine user but took it 2 weeks previous before he used it last. Should he be clean for the drug test? I know there are many factors that dictate how long drugs can stay in someone's system, but he's just look to know a rough estimate whether he will be clear or not. Thank you.

I did a pelvic scan after a blood test confirmed I'm pregnant and the scan reads- the uterus is moderately increased in size, non Gravid and anteverted measuring 54mm in AP diameter. Endometrial echo pattern is noted and normal . No evidence of cyesis or endometrial lesion seen . Both Adnaxae are bilaterally free, ovaries are normal. No myoma noted. Pouch of Douglas is free.

Conclusion -
Acyesis
Empty uterus
Follow up scan advices in 3weeks for further evaluation.

Please what does this result mean.

I am 28 years old virgin. I am worried about this pimple-like bump (many) on my private section. It popped up nearly a week ago and has lot of itching. I thought it might be due to any possibility of dirt so I am washing my private part with soap 3 - 4 times a day. I don't want to consult doctor as I am not comfortable with that. Is there any possibility that it might be something else if not a vaginal pimple.

Can I get any home remedy for that.
Should I wash with dettol or something like that.

When I was around 18 years old, I started feeling a bitter mouth during sleep. At the beginning it was only discomfort, but it evolved to having to spit the saliva inside the mouth to having to wash my mouth several times during the night to having to wash it with toothpaste.
This was progressive and now I am 50 and washing my mouth is not being enough to mitigate the taste any more. The taste is so bad that there was a time when I would try to spit it out during my dreams (that action was actually part of the dream) and would spit it involuntarily on my pillow.
With time my body got into the habit of waking up when the taste was bad enough which I do several times during the night now. I have consulted with dentists, throat doctors, done several tests and exams, but nothing substantial that could be causing the problem was found.
Now the only way to stop the problem nowadays is to chew a mint gum after I wake up the first time, but this is also a problem because the strong taste of the mint wakes my up completely and I can't fall asleep any more, which makes me drowsy during the day. The only exçeptional information I could provide is that my saliva is quite thick, even during the day, but tests showed that the amount of saliva I produce is normal.
I have searched on the internet and can't seem to find similar cases. Is there anyone with symptoms like these or that has studied a similar case that could help me

If this was a one time use of the drug, you are likely to pass the test.

I'm around smaller kids a lot. I don't remember the last time I checked myself for lice so I could have lice and I might have had them for months but my head has been itching. I have long hair and don't want to cut it. How to i tell if I have lice(I have dark brown hair so it's harder to tell) and what is a quick and easy way to kill the lice and their eggs. And what do I do about my house. How do I go about cleaning my house and bed for lice? Please help

There are special combs available in the market to trap lice. You may buy one.

Just comb your hair starting right from the scalp and examine the comb carefully.
