    Hi, I was wondering how things went or are going with your sons dribbling? His symptoms sound very like my sons who is almost 4. He has had his adenoids removed and it has made no difference. His speech isn't very clear, although I understand most of what he is saying but others can't.

    I am 14 years old and my birthmark dosnt sound like any of the ones described, mine is very dark and it is on the back of my knee. If i wear shorts during sports i get comments like, 'ugh have you pooped your self' or 'when you were born you must of had one white leg and one black leg' what can i do to cover it up. I dont want a tatoo.

    You sound normal to me and not suffering from anything that will need an operation. Few men can pee straight with a full erection. It's better to pee when soft. I assume that you can pull back your foreskin and it is normal for the tip and penis head to be sensitive when you touch it.

    hi there, thank God, i thought we were alone, my son is 9 and has only had a dry bed a handful of times, he's had ultra sound scan , all fine, ive done the same as you, charts rewards, more drinks, less drinks, you name it weve done it, hes been on desmomelt tablets that no longer work, keep your chin up !

    Hi my daughter is 11 years old she is below average in school she sits in a daydream most of the time and when you talk to her you have to say her name three or four times before she hears us, when we go shopping she constantly wants things bought for her when I say no she will keep asking upto ten times she doesn't seem to take no for an answer does this sound normal kid behaviour or adhd

    here in the uk we only get vaccination for whooping cough as babies so it very well that your daughter could get this at 11 years old.

    I got 48 on two different (albeit very similar) tests. I am 18 years old and female. I have never had a diagnosis but have always known I am very different to others. I want to know if I could be formally diagnosed, but feel I won't be taken seriously because I don't look or sound different and have learnt to mimic "normal" behaviour quite well most of the time. Though it leaves me feeling empty and completely exhausted. I don't know who to talk to, because I sound stupid saying I can't do something as basic as normal life.

    Hi Andrea. It doesn't sound urgent but take him back to the doctor for a quick check. It will only take 5 minutes and will put your mind at rest. Take care

    Hey, I don't think you need to be really scared. Many boys have this issue. As you get older it loosens up with use! Be patient and don't force it. Not easy to diagnose without seeing the rash but dots on your foreskin don't sound like anything to worry about. I assume there is no pain.

    I honestly suggest you take him to the hospital quickly as this doesn't sound like worms. the hospital is the right way to go. Like m said ask them for a translator as this could be life threatening.

    I'm nearly 17,and I had threadworms about 3 weeks ago,go tell your mum or dad and get them to take you to a doctor, the doctor will give you a tablet which everyone In the house has to take,it might sound scary but it's better to get it checked than suffer

    Im not trying to sound stupid and as i comented above but sometimes i dont wake up to go to the toilet when i need to go? does anybody else find that happen to them because it really gets me down and i do feel sorry and mad at myself but i no deep down that its not really my fault (i dont think) Does anybody else get this feeling?? x

    You must tell your dad or mum about this, i had it when i was 12 very painful erections etc, took me a while to tell dad. In the end. I was circumcised the operation took about 15 minutes didnt hurt abit because i was injected to numb the area,the pain of the healing wasn`t as bad i was expecting infact if i had to choose which pain was more painful it was the erections whilst having a tight foreskin brought a tear to my eye everytime. I am now very happy with the result.

    Thanks for your comment I must tell my dad but its really hard with the dad I have it doesnt hurt so bad now days but when it does hurt i go and have a glass of water and some home actually just tends to go.

    Had an appointment with my neurologist who i see regarding the removal of a brain tumour in 2009 and who i also see for epilepsy. He told me i show signs of autistic "traits" but im not autistic. I scored 32. Does that sound about right? Kat

    Don't risk it, not without your mums consent because it can be dangerous if its not used correctly. You could try bleaching them or just tell your mum straight off that they bother you and you would feel a lot more comfortable with yourself if you could at least SEE a doctor about it and what they say though I honestly don't think you should worry about it. From the sound of it, it doesn't seem too noticeable and it will probably go down after puberty anyway xxx Hope this helped :)

    I have a 8 year old daughter who I've had concerns about since she was about 3, her behaviour is just not quite right, it sound strange but I've just started saying she is who she is! However a friend of mine suggested maybe she has mild ADHD or autism. To be honest I thought she was over reacting but I've just done this test on her behalf and it said 38! So maybe not such a far out idea! What can I do now?
