    Don't be embarrassed! Try laser treatments, I know someone with a laser machine and it kills the roots and stops them growing and they eventually fall off! Your doctor is there for your benefit, don't fell like you can't say these things to him/her. :) GOOD LUCK.

    normal, the body is producing your regular puberty hormones. best time to shape up and bulk up those chest muscles. your hormones are kicking. excellent time to work on those pectorial muscles for chest development. buff, define those muscles. It's called: pubertial gynecomastia

    My 3 1/2 year old son dribbles and spits alot. He seems to have an excess of 'fluid' which results in the dribbles and spitting. In addition to this it 'sounds' as though he has fluid in his chest. Over a period of a few weeks the fluid builds up, causes him to cough and eventually he coughs so much that he vomits the fluid up. It then starts all over again until he vomits a few weeks later. The ENT consultant had no idea, one doctor has suggested 'secretion asthma'. Another says that he holds his mouth open but that doesn't explain the chest and the vomiting. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

I have been diagnosed with SLE lupus not sure if it's due to the condition or not but I have pains in my stomach everyday and I go to the toilet a few times when I do go its very painfull some times there is blood sometimes it's not. The pain is a very sharp knife like pain I am not constipated and afterwards when I'm finished I get a sharp shooting pain feels like I can't wall properly and I can't sit its lasts for around 15 mins then the pain starts to slow down. I am really embarrassed to see my gp what could it be?

    Get your child to drink more water before food in the morning when he wakes up and try investing on natural detoxifying fruits like papaya, watermellon and include more fiber food . Consult your doctor if symptoms persist .

    Hello Cleo! I am no expert in young girls but I'm confident that your periods will start soon. A small amount of blood will pass out from your vagina with very little warning but don't be frightened by this...it is normal. As you mature, this will happen every 28 days. I think you should talk to your mother and possibly visit your doctor just to put your mind at rest on the little red dots! Take care

    My daughter walked at 12 months and appeared normal but she was diagnosed at 30 months, with hip displasia on the left. She, like Oscar, was in traction for a week and then underwent an operation which involved inserting a titanium pin and plate, and was in plaster, similar to Oscar, from her chest to her ankles for three months. After 3 months the plaster was changed so that her legs were almost straight, as if in a standing position. She was in this plaster for around six weeks. She was X rayed regularly. All was well until she was ten, when she started having pain. When she was thirteen, she had more surgery where her pelvis was broken and rotated to accommodate her malformed hip. She was off her feet for six weeks and recovered well. She is now twenty and suffers with a great deal of pain, but gets on with life with great enthusiasm. She is expecting to have a hip replacement very soon.

    I am 50 and have had FM for a few years now. I am on strong pain relief meds but still in bad pain. I have been to pain clinic and they have been helpful. I suffer from tirdness all the time and the hardest point is that people say you look well but inside you are falling to pieces, with the pain When I try to walk its as though I am walking on broken glass I have the pain all over my body. Eventually I believe that there wil be a cure, but at the moment all they can do is try to help with the symptoms.

    I had scoliosis surgery on january 5th 2010 for a 68 degree thorasic curve.it all what smoothly and i am moastly back to my normal activities but, around 2 weeks after i got back home i had extreme pain in the bottom left of my stomach it felt like it was just behind the bone at the front. this was getting progresively worst and after a week my mum took me to the doctors and she said it may have been a cist or something ahd sent me home with ibroprofen, but even the maximum dose of paracetamol and iboprofen didnt help the pain at all so the day after we went back and the doctor advised us to go to a&e so we did. by this time i was doubling over in pain but they said at a&e that is was probablly muscle pain from the surgery and i was sent home with a course of codine which helped but when they ran out i was back to extreme pain but it wasnt all the time or as bad and over the next 4 months these times of pain got further and further apart, but reasently the pain has begun to get more frequent again, not as bad but i still have to lye down untill it subsides. Could this pain still be the pain of straightening out and if so how long will it last for because it is restricting me from doing somethings i want to get back to doing?

    I had spinal fusion 24 years ago and sincethen when bending to put on shoes or with bad posture i get a piercing muscle knot under my left ribcage - i push it in with my hand (it almost feels like a hernia) andi stretch up (usually to the top of a door frame) breath slowly and very quickly the pain will softenand go away. Good luck

    My 19 year old son has had eczema all his life. Over the past 3 years it has become much worse. He is covered from under his chin, down his neck and arms and all over his chest and back. Every gream, steriod etc we've been given just seems to aggravate it. We've tried the sea salt (this sometimes helps but not always!) will try coconut oil - will get some today). His skin looks like red wrinkly paper and is forever splitting. He barely goes out, is struggling with work and has lost his girlfriend. He's angry al the time and in so much pain. Even when he's asleep (he usually has to ake very stronge anti histermeines to help with this) he's crying out in his sleep as he's scratching. We are both exhaused ad desperate - I'm also getting scared as he has recently said he'd be better off dead. What do I do to help him???

    My daughter (4)has eczema which only flares up in the summer months for the rest of the year she is clear. So at the moment I am also having to listen to her cry out mummy help in the middle of the night and it is heart breaking so I can only imagine what your going through. However my cousin (now in her 40s) had eczema most of her life. I remember spending summers with her when we was little and having to listen to her cry every night from the itching and then in the morning her bed would be covered in spots of blood and skin from where she would be scratching all night. Two years ago her sister took her to a hypnotherapist 3 months and 3 sessions later her eczema had gone and has not come back. Im not saying this will work for you son but it might be worth researching.

    Hi, just wondered if he has explored with his Gp or dermatologist whether there are ingredients in the creams he is allergic to, patch testing can be done to clarify this. Some people have problems with steroids, with red skin as a result, there is a support group which helps with this.

    can you help me?!My daughter is now 15mths and she has a reoccurring cough, runny nose, and breaths like 'Darth Vader' at night. i have been to the doctors so many times i am now beginning to feel like a neurotic mum. They tell me her chest is clear and that it is a viral, but every 1-2 weeks this cough comes back and is distressing her, making her irritable and weak. It is worse at night and does keep her awake, we keep her window open slightly at night and never turn her radiator on. The cough seems dry.When the cough comes back i always think it's a chest infection.She is using a Ventolin inhaler. The only time the cough seems to go away or be kept at bay is when she is on antibiotics. Can you help make my baby girl happy without being on antibiotics x

I'm very self conscious and I'm now at the point where I can't stand to look at myself! I hate it I hate myself for being like this and it makes me so depressed I don't know what to do. I don't know why I am like this but I can't even smile anymore I'm so depressed about myself I also have acne on my face, back, chest and spots on my arms.

    I have had mouth ulcers for as long as I remember. I use oralmedic on mine just to cute the pain. It's sore to use but what a difference it makes to the pain afterwards. Its not cheap either but for me it's worth every penny to kill the pain for an extended period.

    I'm 13 and I'm starting to get sharp pains in my stomach . The pain is on and off also I feel like I'm going to be sick. I have been trying different "cures" to get rid of the pain and nothing has helped . Should I go to the doctors or should I sleep it off ( even though the pain has caused me lack of sleep and weakness )?

    Look up Nourishing Traditions and Naturally Wells. Both are .co.uk. May I suggest some dietary changes. I am pained to hear of your son's discomfort and your worry. I trust you will endeavour to look up these web sites. Regards and all the best....

    i'm 26 and i too have this problem, i've had 2 ops to try to put it right and still i have alot of pain which has stopped me doing simple things like riding a bike.....i had my son checked for it too and thankfully he didn't have it......i do however think it's stupid that doctors wait untill me and other like me have to wait until we're in so much pain before they will do anything and most of the time all they do is give crappy pain killers that don't even work!

    I'm a 14 year old girl, and I have been dealing with sharp, tearing pain when making BMs, accompanied by bright red blood, for nearly a year. I'm normally very shy, so I have a hard time asking for help with anything or saying something embarrassing. It's becoming too much, the pain, everything. I want help with it but I can't find the courage to tell my parents. Normally I stay in the bathroom for 30 minutes to nearly an hour for a BM, just because of the pain. Please help me, I really want this to be fixed.
