@wetnam Hey, Facial icing is a nice little trick for a natural pick-me-up but isn't a cure-all or a long-term fix for skin problems like acne, genetic under-eye bags, wrinkles, or other issues. You shouldn't do it more than once a day. Also, it increases the glow on your face. Icing constricts your blood vessels and soothes inflammation. It can soothe acne and can increase product absorption, It can reduce puffiness around the eyes (Applying ice on your face regularly reduces swelling by shrinking dilated blood vessels.), and It can cure sunburns and rashes If you have sensitive skin, don’t apply ice cubes directly to your face. Thanks.

RE: Can weightlifting cause carpal tunnel syndrome?
@nujh Lifting elevated levels of weights with a tight grip, over and over, creates an intense kind of repetitive stress on the hand and wrist area. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve at the base of the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome is an orthopaedic condition and should be diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon or a hand specialist. The doctor will conduct a medical examination and may also order some diagnostic or imaging tests to assess the condition of the hand. The surgeon may also ask you questions or perform a physical diagnosis to assess the sensations and functioning of the wrist and hand, ask about your medical history, and analyze your daily lifestyle and symptoms. Daily exercise helps to stimulate flexible arteries and veins which are key to healthy blood circulation in the extremities of the body, like the hand and wrist areas. Take precautions while weight lifting exercises to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. Thanks!

RE: What should I do during his teething stage?
@lenu Hey, teething in every baby is different. Teething in some starts at 4 months and some after 12 months. But most babies start teething at around 6 months. Baby teeth sometimes emerge with no pain or discomfort at all but they might get the following symptoms-
Gum soreness, mild fever, a rash on their face, one flushed cheek, dribbling more than usual, gnawing and chewing on things a lot, and sleeping well.
You can give him a cold cloth, a pacifier, toys, and a spoon. Make sure you clean the washcloth and toys. You can also soothe him by Massage the gums gently rubbing them with your clean finger.
RE: Can anyone tell me Is C. diff contagious? Can my grandfather get C. diff again?
@utger Yes. To keep from spreading C. diff to others:
- He should Wash his hands with soap and water every time you use the bathroom and always before you eat.
- Try to use a separate bathroom if you have diarrhea.
- Take showers and wash with soap.
Yes, some people get C. diff over and over again.
One in 6 people who’ve had C. diff will get it again in the subsequent 2-8 weeks.
If you start having symptoms again, seek medical care.
For those with repeat infections, innovative treatments, including fecal microbiota transplants, have shown promising results.
RE: Should I need to worry if my t4 count is 13?
@ruhiisi Hello, normal levels of total T4 range from 5–12 micrograms per deciliter (mcg/dl) of blood. Normal levels of free T4 range from 0.8–1.8 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dl) of blood. TSH is the hormone that stimulates the production of T4. If it is normal then I would not worry about the T4 is a little high. If it is low, this would be a sign of a hyperthyroid state that may need treatment. If the TSH isn't normal you may want to see an endocrinologist or your primary care doctor for further testing see why it is abnormal and if treatment is necessary. To treat antithyroid Medications: Antithyroid medications (sometimes written anti-thyroid) prevent the thyroid from producing excess amounts of T4 and T3 hormones. There are 2 types of antithyroid medications used in the US—propylthiouracil (PTU) and methimazole (also known as Tapazole). Tak to your doctor. Thanks!

RE: I am 4 months pregnant can I perform exercise?
@nudhina It is not dangerous to exercise or to be physically active during pregnancy and doctors recommend it for most pregnant women. Women who exercised before pregnancy should continue to do so. Women who wish to become active during pregnancy may do so and should start slowly, however, pregnancy is not the time to exercise with the goal of weight loss. Check with your health care professional before beginning an exercise program during pregnancy.
Physical activity and regular exercise during pregnancy can improve common discomforts such as backache and fatigue and can increase the likelihood of early recovery after delivery. In general, most kinds of aerobic, resistance, and flexibility exercises like yoga are safe during pregnancy.
RE: All women should aim to gain 25-30 pounds during pregnancy.
@lisssa The amount of weight a woman should gain during pregnancy depends on her body mass index (BMI) before she became pregnant. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) provides these guidelines: Women at a healthy weight before pregnancy should gain about 25 to 30 pounds. Women who were underweight before pregnancy should gain between 28 and 40 pounds. Women who were overweight before pregnancy should gain between 15 and 25 pounds. Women should gain weight throughout the pregnancy. Most of the weight should be gained in the last trimesters. Generally, doctors suggest that women gain weight at a rate of 2-4 pounds total during the first trimester, and 3-4 pounds per month during the second and third trimesters.
RE: Irregularity in my period. Is it possible to get menopause in the late 30s??
@divya Hey, it is normal to have an irregular and shorter menstrual cycle in your late 30s. It is uncommon for menopause to occur before the age of 40, but many of the symptoms of menopause can begin several years before menopause occurs. This is known as perimenopause. Irregularity and shorter menstrual cycle less production of oestrogen.
