Anonymous said: The other day my friend bit my finger so hard that he took two small chunks out - three days later the cuts have not closed, are a brown-ish colour and my finger has swelled and is red and really painful. he did this in a playful way as i was trying to wake him up - no negativity just worried that it could be infected or he might have rabies ;) any advice would be a blessing, thanks :)

I doubt he has rabies, He’d be seriously sick if he did. Redness is a sign of inflammation which is higher blood flow to the area to help it heal. It might take a while to heal, especially if the “chunks” aren’t intact. The brown-ness is a concern, though. Try cleaning it out with hydrogen peroxide, and keep it clean and covered, with antibacterial ointment if you have it.  After a couple of days if it isn’t clearing up or showing signs of improvement, see a doctor about it. However since I am not a medical professional, If you have serious concerns about an infection (or rabies) please go see a doctor. I hope you heal speedily!

Anonymous said: So my boyfriend has hypertension and he is on medication for that, he is 21, not over weight, he actually does exercise almost everyday and does a lot of sports but he also smokes a lot, and he smokes drugs too. What are the consequences of that in blood pressure? I don´t have nothing against smoking, I smoke too, but i am bit worried with him

Smoking alone can cause hypertension so doing drugs may make it higher. There are plenty of consequences to high blood pressure like hardening of the arteries, stroke, weight gain, headaches and more. highest concern should be stroke, stroke level is around a systolic (top number) of 170 or higher.

Anonymous said: Since October i have had 4 periods. I'm not sexually active and have had my period for 5 years.. I'm scared something might be wrong. Have any idea what it could be?

Perhaps a hormone imbalance. Did you recently start, or before october had you had several regular periods? I would go to the doctor because if it’s a hormone imbalance, you can be put on birth control and it will make it so you are back to having it again. It could be other things too, which is why it’s important to go to the doctor.

Anonymous said: I gave my bf a handjob with lotion and he didn't come but he pre ejaculated. I wiped my hand on my shirt and the grass and a few minutes later I touched myself in my area. After realizing this I stopped and went home to change my clothes, wash my hands and put germx on my hands and my area. I never put my infer in my vagina but do you think I could get pregnant? And If so what are the chances? Thank you so much I'm just really concerned. And I now know that it was stupid to use germ x

Yeah the germx wouldn’t really do anything. If you didn’t put your finger in your vagina I think you’re fine. sperm can’t swim THAT far. If you’re still really concerned, in a week or two do a pregnancy test.

Anonymous said: Hi I have threadworms, what's the best and quickest way to get rid of them? Exams start in 1 and a half weeks :(

Try to get to a doctor, that’s not really treatable at home. plus, it might not be threadworms. good luck!

Anonymous said: i have a serious binge eating problem. i don't know what to do anymore i've tried everything, from portioning my meals to drinking lots of water and keeping myself busy... it doesn't matter what i do, i always end up eating absolutely everything in sight. i want to lose weight for summer but at this rate that won't happen. i'm totally addicted to food and i have no control :( Is there any advice you can offer? thank you

This is a tough one. It seems psychological, which is always hard to work with. I’d say talk to a doctor for help, sometimes they do help a lot but if you want to try to do things at home, try rewarding yourself when you eat “properly” and don’t get down on yourself when you can’t! Also, if you eat foods with higher fiber content, it’ll make you feel fuller faster so it’ll be harder to eat more.

Anonymous said: I exercise 2 hours a day 5 Times a week, I haven't had my period, I'm one week late. Do you think it has to do with that? I'm a virgin so I can't be pregnant.

It actually wouldn’t! Studies have shown exercising at least an hour a day can help lessen them. sometimes periods are late, but if it gets to be 2 or 3+ weeks late, talk to your doctor because it could be a hormone imbalance. Good luck and be well! 

a-vintagenightmare said: I've been having back pain recently due to sports, but this morning I started having shooting pains on the right side of my my lower back, is it just muscle pain or could it be kidney stones.. I'm 15, and the thought of kidney stones scares me..

I’d get it checked out if you can! Even if it’s just muscle pain, it’s not normal for it to be shooting pains! it could mean something is torn

Anonymous said: I have been on the pill for about 4 months, i came off it and had a normal period about 2 weeks ago but i got some blood clots and I am not sure it's because my cycle is sorting it's self out and I have not had any unprotected sex either, im just getting a little worried ;o

Believe it or not, clots are quite normal with periods! I mean if you’re really nervous get it checked, but it’s normal! when the uterus shed’s it’s lining it might not come off little by little, and coming off and out in a large amount can actually form a clot.
