Question: I received a prolia injection yesterday, March 1, 2017. Approximately 5 hours after the injection I had flu-like symptoms, all over aching, is this to be expected? I also experienced weakness, tiredness, I laid down and then went to bed. I slept ok. This morning the symptoms are still with me, but to a lesser degree.

Helo sir,
I am 29 year old I had typhoid when I was about 15 years and doctor prescribed me some tablets .I had severe fever just one day night and on the same day I was having severe itching on the glans penis and by the next day it became sores.The next day itself I again consulted the doctor and he changed the medicines.He said that might be because of allergy to sulphar or something.That sores became worst and took around two weeks to heal leaving many marks and uneven skin.What type of allergy was it?or was it a symptom of something else like any STD?Is there any way to remove that marks on the glans penis?Please help.becouse of shyness I never discussed these with a doctor

Hi, I have bumps on my scalp that itch a lot. These bumps come and go. Sometimes they are there for 2-3 days and sometimes they diasppear in few hours. But they cause discomfirt and severe hair loss. Initially they started as harmless small bumps and over few years they have taken this form. Doctors gave me shampoos and local applications - which did not help even a little. I have used oils like ashtabringhandri tailam etc. The itching reduces when my hair is wet or oiled for sometime, but comes back again within few hours. I have stopped using shampoos with chemicals and hair colour sometimes for a month or so, but still the bumps keep coming. Some shampoos have an aggavating effect, (Shampoos like Johnson Babies, Head and Shoulder etc produce more bumps and itching) some have no effect (shampoos like dove - results in neither increase nor decrease of bumps). I am 47 year old, female, not diabetic, over weight, on a break from work and hence not stressed (Currently). I have no other problem except severe itching, bumps and accompanying hair loss. the bumps are mostly on the back of my head and sometimes on the crown. My hair falls off like as it it is too weak to stick on to my scalp. It falls in long strands, many many at a time thruout the day but my pillow does not have any hair fall sign when I get up... I feel I need to take some medicines internallysince this is an infection....
