User :   I've heard that Fruta Planta (a Chinese or Japanese diet supplement) is affordable, accessible, and highly effective at suppressing the appetite with little to no side effects. I want to try it, is it safe?                              
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi Doctor.
User :   Is this legit?
User :   I mean? Magic? C'mon?
Doctor :   I am general practitioner and I specialise with Hallopathic medicine.
Doctor :   My knowledge on chinese or japanese diet are restricted.
Doctor :   Please restrict your queries to medical questions.
User :   How can I connect to a doctor with specialization in Chinese medicine?
Doctor :   We do not have specialist in chinese medication among our panel of doctors.
User :   ok thanks anyway.
User :   I have another question.
Doctor :   Please proceed.
User :   You know those little bumps that everyone has in their lips? I think they are called MUCOCELE. I have a bump that seemed to become enlarged for no reason (I didn't bite it) it was painless, and now slowly but surely it is shrinking. why did I get this mysterious bump?
Doctor :   Since when have you noticed these bumps?
Doctor :   Usually these are secondary to an infection.
Doctor :   However the cause cannot be predicted unless they are evaluated.
User :   I've had the bumps forever. if you run your tongue on your inner lip, you can feel them beneath the skin..and sometimes you can bite or even chew on them. they are tiny and normal. but ONE just got big for like a month or so now and is shrinking again. NO pus, no pain, no bleeding...just a bump
Doctor :   aaaaaaaa
Doctor :   * I am sorry.
Doctor :   May I know since when exactly are you having these bumbs?
User :   Forever. no one talks about it but I am pretty positive that those bumps in the lips are normal.
Doctor :   Bumps in the lips are commonly due to infection, trauma, nutritional deficiency.
Doctor :   Rarely long standing bumps can be a lipoma.
Doctor :   These are benign conditions that need little concern.
Doctor :   They have to be just observed.
Doctor :   They may not need any treatment.
Doctor :   However, if you find any gross changes such as increase in the size of the swelling, discharge from them, pain or any other noticable symptoms,
Doctor :   you may have to report to a doctor for evaluation and treatment.
Doctor :   Have you followed?
User : just got slowly pain or discomfort...i guess it harmless bodily weirdness
Doctor :   If its disappearing then you need not worry.
Doctor :   Do you have any other query that I can assist you with?
User :   nah, thanx though. have a nice day
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me. Bye for now. Please refer your friends to our service.
