Have a nine month old that was exposed to walking pneumonia for about an hour. He now has a green cruddy nose and hard to breath, some chest congestion, cough at night. No temp today, but slept very poorly last night, up 4 times. Could this be pneumonia? What are the symptoms for an ear infection? Thank you

Hi Dr: This morning I was cleaning my stove with bleach mix with soap detergent and stain remover from the Melaleuca brand. While cleaning I inhale the bleach, I was coughing a lot and I even want to throw up. Afterwards, I feel pain in my throat when breathing and I feel my chest has been congested. It has been more than 12 hours ago since that happened and I am still coughing and feeling the pressure in my throat and chest. I am scared that I don t have any chemical Pneumonia. Please, advise! Thanks in Advance!

Dear Ask The Doctor: Dear Dr. First I want to thank you very much for your volunteer services. I have a mixture of symptoms. First, about 9 years ago, I had unprotected sex with a woman I knew. It was of course very stupid. Anyway, I was tested after that, and subsequently several times, and show no HIV or other know sexually transmitted diseases. However, I was told a few years later (about 7 years ago) that I had a slight, but not serious, low white blood cell count. 6 years ago, I moved to Korea for work. I often went outdoors, and was exposed to a lot of air pollution. I was also under a lot of stress, and around other people from various nationalities and environments. I had absolutely no sexual contact. But, for some reason, I had 2 serious health problems in Korea. First, I somehow got a serious ear infection. I had to have fluid removed at the hospital and take antibiotics and pain killers. After that, I had another long term sickness. For about 1 month, I had night sweats, a deep cough, and a fever. I again went on antibiotics and pain killers, and recovered. However, after this, I left Korea (about a year intotal). I have been living in another Asian country since then. Before my time in Korea, I was quite healthy, and did not get sick very often, even a flu. Since then, I have several times became sick, with a long term cough, 2-months, during the winter times. I have learned to manage this cough through deep breathing, dressing extremely warmly in the winter, and taking large doses of vitamins all through the winter. However, this does not cure me, but only manages the symptoms. I have had chest x-rays and blood test, but was told that I am all right, except for a continual presence of low white blood cell count. Another symptoms I have are very excessive (for my age of 33) urination. I do think that somehow I was passed this infection by the woman I was with. Because, I recall here having to urinate more often than average. And, after being with her, I had to urinate more often than normal, every year, until lately it is quite bad now, definitely not normal. Another symptom I have is constant dry throat and excessive, unnatural thirst. However, this has happened only since my sickness in Korea (6 years ago). Also, I produce excessive phlegm, all year round, but particularly in the winter. All of these symptoms: cough, phlegm, thirst, and also shortness of breath , occurred after my sickness in Korea. The only symptoms that were present before Korea were a slight need to urinate more often than normal and also a very slight low white blood cell count. I have tried for 5 years to find a local doctor here in this other Asian country to give me a good answer what might be happening, but so far I have not been taken seriously. I have not had the opportunity to return to the USA, so any thoughts on what might be the cause would be much appreciated. Also, please do not spare my feelings. If it is possible I had contracted a serious std, or infection from the woman I was with, I would need to know. I have not been very sexually active since that time, and would like to get married someday, but obviously need to know before I take that step with someone. Thank you very much again for your time and help.

Hi Doctor, Thank you for such service first of all. I am a 23 year old male having this issue or concern for about almost 2 years. It first started during the summer before the past one with pain on my right testicle and constipation. I looked around online and I see that constipation may cause testicular pain. At the beginning the pain was on the right top of testicle and side. It was not a 24/7 pain. it comes goes. but most of the day around 90% of the time I had pain. Since I did not have insurance I did not consult with the doctor. I did take home remedies such as prune juice, dates, and sometime tried dulcolax for the constipation, eventhough it did not work as I needed. Once I got the insurance about a year later I went to the doctor, but testicle pain was not bad as it was before but constipation got worse. Once I did couple of appointments with the doctor he prescribed me to do a colonoscopy and result came back negative. They said it is IBS. Since I had/have gas trouble also they did endoscopy only thing it showed on the endoscopy was some marks were on my beginning of the throat. He took a biopsy of it and result came back negative. Also we did ultrasound of the abdomen and it came back negative as well. Once the testicle pain came back again my doctor prescribed me to a urologist and he did a physical examination and told there is an infection on my epididymis. prescribed me sulfamethadoxale tmp ds for three weeks and it didnt satisfy what my problem. He then did a ultrasound and only thing he found out was there is extra fluid but that is something not worry about and that is not the reason of your pain I am worrying about. About the sexual activity. Due to my backpain, One time I went to spa where they offered masterbation I received it. with my gf I just had oral sex. So since this is something I was worrying about urologist did test for chlamydia and gonorrhea and both result came back negative. I have lost around 15 pounds from the day I saw my physician and I was in so much worried and tensed during these days.
As of now my condition is this, sometimes i get narrow bowel movement(amount of total stool- only a little), sometimes thick one in the beginning and small pieces after that, sometimes I have abdominal pain, left side of my stomach feels something blocking there, gas, bloating(not always but quite often). Mucus on my stool(some time)
Urination- sometimes too often, when I push hard to go to bathroom I have clear discharge from my penis, 3-5 times I have seen white mucus in my urine. some times I have seen my urine is cloudy. When I go to bathroom in the morning, I have seen that my testicle gets larger and feels that all the fluids filled in there that is really uncomfortable. I feel pain or discomfort on right side of the groin it only happens some times and feel pain and discomfort behind the testicle. I do have gas/bloating. I do have a doubt if I lost appetite or not.
Any kind of inputs are appreciated in advance.
Thanks.

I have been in Methadone Treatment for 6 Months and have a plan to slowly get off of the Methadone. But i have had to deal with a brutal cycle of constipation. It is to the point now that i bleed from the rock hard stool stretching my rectum. How can i soften my stool? When i feel like i need to go i will use Vaseline, as well Vaseline Suppositories and it still bleeds every time. It Bleeds enough to make the water completely dark pink.If there is no way to soften my stool then what should i use to try and heal my rectum where the bleeding occurs? Thank you for your time. Ben from Arkansas.

I have been on methadone for approx. 5 years now at a dose of 30mg taken 4 times daily. This has not only stopped any unpleasant withdrawl symptoms but has also offered considerable relief in easing chronic pain from a severe back injury 11 years ago. For the first 3 years of taking the medication I found that while it was effective in these areas their was an exceptional side effect in that it absolutely obliterated any interest in sex or even the ability to physically have sex. Also I found that I had next to no energy, making many things I used to enjoy fall by the wayside which in turn led to severe depression. After extensive talks with my Doctor I was sent for blood analysis and it was found that my level of testosterone was so low it barely registered. I was then put on a 3 week cycle of injections of 2mls of Delatestryl and for the past several years I have been the person that I used to be (it gave me my life back). Know I have been given a new Doctor at the clinic I attend and he has informed me that he is only there to prescribe methadone and will not be responsible for any other prescriptions. I do not have a family doctor and our emerg has said that this falls outside their domain. The walk in clinic treats every individual that I know so badly that their is no doubt in my mind that they will refuse to continue this presciption. (to give you some perspective on our walk in clinic - I went their several mnths back with sever pneumonia and the Doctor looked at my chart once and told me that I would get know %$#&# narcotics from him and to leave immediately) Any suggestions on how to get across to my knew methadone Doctor (who has only been in prescribing methadone for 2 months) just how much this would severely negatively impact my life?
