Worried about risk of hepatitis c and hiv from dry hands.
Worried about risk of hepatitis c and hiv from dry hands.Yesterday, I went out and lotioned my hands prior to going out. We then went to the restroom where I washed my hands before and after using the restroom and didn't lotion afterwards. I suppose the soap dried them out. Throughout thenight I must have gotten dyhydrated because as I was leaving I noticed my right hand was cracked and actually bleeding on a couple of sites near my pinkie.A) I am worried that the soap dispensers could have had hep c or hiv on them and gotten into my cracks on my hand when washing...B) could dry/cracked hands pose a risk when touching others cell phone etc...don't remember actively shaking hands but as I didn't feel my hand being dry till the very end I could have touched numerous items and touched the cracked/bleeding part.C) used an antibacterial wipe when I got home, could that have made things worse by pushing anything in?I don't know why I didn't reapply lotion as I had a big tube in my purse but I was too distracted as it was a party and obviously forgot to drink water etc not that I had any alcohol.So again, is there any risk to hep c or hiv from anything listed above? Should I get tested? Need any medications?Enclosed is a pic of my hand now although the bleeding part has subsided. That was at the far right near my pinkie area.Thanks!

Hi. My daugther is 6 years old and has for the last 5 days had a fever. Starting at about 39,5C and now on the 5th day it's about 38,3C. She is playful and happy. But has a very bad cough. Usually she does not have fever for that long and haven't been sick for the last year. I am quite worried about the fever lasting that long.

My daughter is almost 3 years old and she says "vagina hurts" and holds down there. I've taken her to pee and she doesn't act like it burns, she doesn't pee too frequently and doesn't act like it's itchy down there. This evening she pointed right above the clitoris and said hurts. I'm going to take her to her pediatrician tomorrow but looking for answers in the mean time. Would appreciate any insight. Thank you!JA: Do you keep personal medical records to help track this?Customer: It happened the first time Friday, no complaints Saturday and just started again this evening.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: No medical history. But she has been playing in our sandbox for weeks.

I feel pain in my upper stomach in late night at 3~4 am. The pain is light but strong enough to disturb my sleep. Normally, I take water and it get subsided. But sometimes it prolongs and I cannot sleep thereafter. I consulted my doctor. He did endoscopy and told I have gastric issue. He also conducted biopsy and later informed I have H. Pylori bacteria in my stomach. He gave me a antibiotic course for 10 days. During the course I started getting loose bowl movements. Although he had given me a tablet for stomach relief but it did not help. Now it is almost four months but my loose bowl movement has not yet stopped. It looks like undigested food mixed with lot of water. I hear gurgling sounds in my lower stomach and sometimes it is associated with pain. I still have pain in my upper stomach in late nights. My doctor did a breath test to see if bacteria is gone. After the test, he asked my to come after six months for another breath test. I am not satisfied with the either the diagnosis or the treatment. Please advise.
