  • Tonsillitis for the third time consecutively?

    The first time I got tonsillitis I went to see my doctor, he gave me amoxicillin 875mg for 10 days, the day after I finished...not even 24 hours, it was back. So I went back to my doctor and he gave me Cefdinir 300mg for 14 days, and the day after I finished those at 3pm, my tonsillitis came back again. I tested... show more

So I went back to my doctor and he gave me Cefdinir 300mg for 14 days, and the day after I finished those at 3pm, my tonsillitis came back again. I tested negative for strep and no one else around me is getting what I have!? I even made out with a guy before I knew I was sick and he didn't even get sick?? (kind of wish he got a bit of a cold as he ended up being a jerk :/) I even shared my food with my baby nephew when I didn't know I was sick and hes perfectly fine! Could there be a more serious problem my doctor isn't seeing? This time he's said I will have to go in for blood work :( Of course my first worry as a hypochondriac is cancer, it couldn't be that right?? My doctor has told me not to have my tonsils taken out, he's very nice and has always done the best option for me, not the one he will benefit from so right now I'm doing my best to trust his advice...but thats very hard right now...any second opinions? I have lots of puss pockets on my tonsils and they are red and purple.

  • How do I get rid of this without going to the doctor?

    I have this green spot right next to the toe nail on my big toe, it's green cuz filled with pus. The internet says "go to your doctor", but I can't because I don't know if my parents have enough money for the appointment.

    I have this green spot right next to the toe nail on my big toe, it's green cuz filled with pus. The internet says "go to your doctor", but I can't because I don't know if my parents have enough money for the appointment. We have really nice phones/laptops/tv's in most of our rooms/and whatnot; but we couldn't even afford to visit my grandmom in another country. I'm 16 years old and I should know how to work a budget, be knowledgable about bills and money in general, I should know how much money my family actually has, basically I should know what kind of economical situation we're in. However I don't; I have an idea of what it is, but I'm skeptical about it. Every time I ask my family anything rometely related to money, I get shaken off; I'm not trying to blame anyone because I know some of it is my fault as well. Even with this "down side" I should be able to find information elsewhere and learn about the world of currency and money in general (in school or elsewhere), but I didn't. Anyway, so therefore I can't just go up to my parents and say "hey by the way I have this gross puss spot on my big toe where I have an ingrown nail and need to go to my doctor even though we probably don't have enough money for it and they will probably say 'u need a surgery.' ". One of my parents is already having a surgery of their own, that's probably enough to take a big chunk of our money. So I would really appreciate it if you guys knew any other way of attacking the thing on my toe.

    I've had some fluid buildup in my ears for awhile now and after driving up to new york from virginia for thanksgiving break my right ear felt way more clogged, hasn't popped in days, and is ringing constantly. All my doctor says is that the symptoms are normal and to wait it out but I've been taking sudafed which isn't helping and I feel like it just feels worse than it did before I came to new york. How long does it take to get better? It's really annoying because I feel so sensitive to loud noises and the ringing is really annoying. I know that my doctor can't really do much except give me advice but I just want the fluid to drain from my ears. It's so uncomfortable to constantly feel like I'm on a plane when I'm not. The pressure can be so uncomfortable at times and I'm also really stressed out right now being home. When will the pressure go down and why is nothing helping? Do I really just have to wait it out?

  • I cut a small chunk of my pinky finger off and it’s deep. How do i get it to stop bleeding?

    My manager helped me apply the bandage really tight. But it’s still bleeding about 3 hours later and I’m home. It cut right into my nail and a deep piece of skin came off. I ran it under water and it kept bleeding, i couldn’t put neosporin on it.

    I am 28 years old and i have always been over all a healthy woman, other than my dependence for Opiates. Within the last 2 years i have been on Methadone, had a baby, and was in a car accident.The car accident was due to a young man slamming into the back of the vehicle i was in and thankfully, i seemed completely fine, just shooken up.

    So my doctor gave me prescription Vitamin D for two months and I'm a week late from taking my second dosage. I went to the pharmacist and they said my doctor had to call it in and when I went back it still wasn't there so now I have to wait until Monday or Tuesday. I had symptoms from when I was first diagnosed with the deficiency which included Sore muscles, headache, pain behind the eyes, etc. Well I'm starting to have them again because I've been without Vitamin D for a little over a week now. My parents told me that it has nothing to do with my defiency. I'm a hypochondriac so it's making me worry a little more than usual but could it be a cold or am I still experiencing symptoms because I haven't taken my dosage. I take multivitamins but I'm not really sure. Maybe I'm just freaking out. Help me!

  • Is aging scary.. please help? I’m turning 20 and I’m just terrified. I don’t want my husband to not love me anymore!?

    Best answer: If he really loves you for you then he will never stop loving you because your appearance changes. Also, you have at least 10-15 years before you even start noticing symptoms of aging. Some people age slower than others. I've seen people in their 40s who look like they're in their 20s! Don't worry... show more

    Don't worry about something you have no control over. Just take care of yourself, eat healthy, exercise, and take multivitamins. Your skin will be looking fabulous if you take care of yourself! If you spend your life worrying about aging then you will not enjoy life to it's fullest. Everyone ages, it's life. Don't let it get you down :)

  • How do I tell my parents that I vape?

    Best answer: Be honest with them. Tell them you used to be a smoker and now you're vaping to help stop smoking. They will be mad initially that you hid smoking from them but will be happier now that you're quitting.

    Best answer: Be honest with them. Tell them you used to be a smoker and now you're vaping to help stop smoking. They will be mad initially that you hid smoking from them but will be happier now that you're quitting. If it's just the nicotine that you need, I recommend you switch to a smoking cessation method such as patches, gum, or lozenges and ditch the vape.

    They will be even more happier that you're using one of those methods instead of vaping. Vaping is definitely healthier than smoking but it's not completely healthy. You're better off weaning yourself from nicotine on one of those than doing so via vaping. They're cheaper as well. I hope you're able to get off nicotine! Good luck :)
