My six-year old daughter was initially diagnosed with
My six-year old daughter was initially diagnosed with suspected juvenile arthritis. However, after series of lab tests, results came out negative.

I'm a 23 year old male and reason I have this reddish
Hi, so I'm a 23 year old male and for some reason I have this reddish dot on the back of my throat. It's been there since at least January and hasn't really changed in consistency since then. I do have health anxiety and am really freaking out about it today. I've had two doctors who've looked at my throat when I had colds since January and neither of them has said anything about it. Is it completely harmless or could it be something concerning like oral cancer, some infection, or some other serious issue? It's probably irrational since it's been there for so long but I guess I'm just really wondering why it's there. Also, my throat has been a little scratchy today (probably from allergies) so I've paid more attention to it.I'm 6'2, 167lbs and would consider myself healthy. I had a CBC done about a month ago and everything came back normal
I went to breastfeed my 10th month old son and put m down
I went to breastfeed my 10th month old son and put him down for a nap. He was really fussy and so I had to rock him quite a bit before he fell asleep. He slept about 20min and then woke up and vomited all over the bed. I thought it was because was rocking him after feeding him so I cleaned him up and put him in the living room to play. A little while later I noticed that he had big welts or hives on the back of his neck. I asked my husband what he fed him for lunch and my husband told me he fed him scrambled eggs which he had never had before. My son then had a huge diarrhea. So while cleaning him up I noticed that he was red all over his stomach had small welts on his legs and his head. So I called the pharmacy and they told me to give him 2.5mg of loratadine. So I gave him that. 30 min later my son vomited again. But the welts were going away and the redness was less so I figured he was ok. The pharmacy said that I could only give him that once in a 24 hour period. Will my son need more medication? Will his hives come back? He started to have some trouble swallowing when I was giving him the loratadine but he hasn't shown any signs of breathing problems or wheezing. What should I do if his welts or hives come back.
