Swelling of the eyes, forehead and throat with diarrhea. What could be the problem ?

Hi. My sister in law woke up the other morning with a swollen forehead and eyelids . We don t know if it was an allergic reaction to something she ate or maybe the type of material from her clothing. The swelling has now progressed down her to her chest and even her throat is starting to swell. She also has huge lumps across her scalp. We took her to the hospital but nothing was done, just pain killers were given to her. What should we do? Is there something she can take for the mean time until we see a different doctor? She s also had diarhorea for nearly 2 weeks, could this be related? Its seems to just keep spreading and growing more lumps and swelling. Thankyou

I bleached my hair twice last night, both times in a small bathroom with the door closed. I know that there were a lot of funes from the bleach because they gave me a sore throat and hurt my eyes, and now today I ve had severe fatigue and stomach problems, including diarrhea. I m also feeling shaky and weak. Could this be connected to the inhalation of fumes or is it something else?

vomiting and diarrhea My son turned 3 in august. So i think it was mid/end of september or first october her started complaining about his tummy hurting. He complains a few times a day everyday. I took him to the pediatricians office and he had strep throat and i was told that was probably why his tummy hurts and it would get better when he got over strep. I had them give him a shot for strep because i am very bad at remembering medicines. He still complains about his tummy. I thought it maybe hurting when he needed to go to the bathroom maybe a little constipation but ive noticed it still hurts after he has a bowel movement. 2 or 3 nights ago he woke up and vomited a few times. Then went back to sleep. He has said his tummy hurts but no vomiting until early this morning. He had diarrhea twice yesterday and once after he vomited this morning. It was very liquidy. He hasnt had fever but has been very fussy and clingy the last few weeks. No changes in his diet. And for the most part he hasnt slowed down in his usual activities. He has been in tears over his tummy and i dont know what we need to do. I havent noticed his urine smelling too bad. It has once or twice in the last couple of months and he did tell me a couple of days ago that his back and head hurts. But i thought it maybe bc he slept funny. Could this just be stomach virus or something more serious? What could possibly be the problem and do i need to take him to the pediactric clinic or hospital?

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.

I accidentally gave my 8 month old ibuprofen two hours early. She is 17 lbs and I gave her 1.25 ml only four hours a part instead of 6. She has an ear infection and RSV and I thought I was giving her Tylenol the second time but instead gave her two doses of ibprofen. She fell asleep. Should I be worried?
