Brief Answer:
few possible causes

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
First, it may mean nothing, especially in your age and if you do sport.
Second, if there is some associated symptoms such as excessive urination or sweating then it may indicate certain disorders. In first place, related to your kidneys or hormonal values (insuline, ADH or cortisol). I dont see emergency but you shoud see nephrologist and endocriologist if this persist. you need to check blood sugar, urine analysis and hormone values. Till that ,try not to drink more than 2.5 liters of fluids per days unless you do sport. Wish you good health. Regards

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Yellowish semen isnt indicating any disease if there is no pain or fever or lumps in genital area.
Rectum itch may be caused by hemorrhoids,fissures or abscess. you need to see proctologist for further evaluation.

Helo, my 3 year olf daughter was diagnosed with aggressive non-germinoma Yolk-sac brain tumour at a late stage in the supracellar area. she had surgery then chemo and was growing normally. It was only after the radiation (only to tumour bed) that she stopped growing. I do not what to do? doctors have not given us any growth hormones. She also is aking cortisol hormone as the gland responsible for it does not seem to be working properly, we have been trying to lower the dose but were not able to stop it. Ps: she lost sight in both eyes since tumour was pressing on optic nerves. Can you advise us please?

MY partner had a pituitary apolexy 7 weeks ago which he had an operation on, but some of the tumour is still there. He is now on thyroxine 100 mcgs od and hydrocortisone 20mgs morning, 15mgs lunchtime and 5 mgs pm. How much alcholol is he allowed to consume in a day. Also is it possible that the pituiatary gland will work again as it was not all removed. Can hydrocortisone make you aggressive, especially when drinking alchohol his age is 42 years he is 178cm and 102 kgs

Hello Doctor,

My aunt was unwell for the past week with a possible cause of parasitic worms. She had a stay for about 3 days in the hospital which resulted in her being very week. This week when she was home she felt giddy and hit her head to the floor. The various tests conducted have all Thankfully been Fine. She though is very weak and cannot even sit down on the bed. She is currently recuperating in the hospital and the blood, stool tests were norma. The liver tests were having figures on a slightly higher side and are awaiting the cortisol results in a couple of days. The practioners are trying to find the actual cause of the weakness. The ammonia levels were high and sodium was less. She was on a saline 3 concentration sodium. Can you please advise what may be the trigger for this weakness.

I was gardening in the morning with garden gloves, big sun hat & big white long sleeve high collar shirt under the strong sun, because I burn badly. That evening suddenly my lower arms between the elbow & wrist are covered with bunch of red spots. At first I thought they are from the bugs, so I put the over the counter insect bite cream. It didn t help at all after frequent application overnight. They Itch badly, tiny dot size to 1/4 diameter, some have white or clear pointed center. I remembered I had a similar incident about 3 months ago on my lower legs & went to the dermotologist. She prescribed fluocinonide cream usp 0.05%, so I have been appling it this morning, but no improvement. Should I give more time ? I also have proctozone-HC TM 2.5% ( hydrocortisone cream usp 2.5% ) prescribed from another doctor. Is this the same as the first cream ? May I use ths instead or use it after the first one is gone ? How often may I use per day & how long may I use ? Or do I have totally another problem ?
