dont go for old cotton sarees. as it contains more dust. need to wash every time, its difficult to wash and dry also. its good if you go for pampers as diaper rash. frequently need to change the diappers or else it will only cause rashes harmful more than help ful.

My 1 year old son started screaming during a diaper change today and I noticed on the right side of his scrotum a reddened area which seems more firm than the left side. It seems painful only when I touch it, but he has been having some restless sleep the past two nights as well.

Hi doctors, my son is 1.2 years and he has diarrhea and diaper rash for over 10 days now! We have been using different creams and medicines to cure the rash (which is caused by diarrhea) but nothing is working, we used Mebo, then pharmacist suggested to use nystal but only for 3 days, we did and it was getting better, after stopping nystal it got worse again, a doctor told us to use panderm and sachets of Hexbio. But now the rash is getting worse and the skin is tearing. Please advise what should we do? My son cannot sleep at night.

Over the last month and a half I have lost 20 lbs., have no appetite and have been experiencing significant rectal bleeding (bright red blood). The blood is heavy enough that I have to wear adult diapers so I don t soil my clothes. The bleeding stops for a day, but starts back again. It is not always associated with having a bowel movement. About a month ago I had fairly bad constipation but that has now been relieved and I have regular bowel movements. I at times think the bleeding is over, but then wake up in the middle of the night feeling moisture in my underwear and when I get to the bathroom my underwear is soaked in blood. During the bleeding, the toilet water is completely red with blood. I have started feeling drowsy and dizzy and have no energy. I cannot get into my gastroenterologist for another 4 days but this bleeding has been going on over 3 wks. What should I do?

My wife has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's several years ago and was taking Ditropan and her family practice doc gave her Myrbetriq and she has been on this new medication for about 3 months and now she doesn't or can't empty her bladder during the waking hours. After going to bed at night she seems to have gallons of urine passed at night. She will pass enough urine to soak 2-3 adult diapers during her sleep time.
If I would give her the medication at bedtime instead of in the morning, would this help her empty void when I place her on the toilet during her waking hours. I probably have her on the toilet 3 to 4 hours during the daytime.
I need more advice. Thank you Bob
