Kinda personal, but very concerned.... My boyfriend has a problem "controling himself". When we have intercourse he has never lasted more than 5mins. We have sex on a regular basis (almost everyday except when im on my period). But this last time there wasn't even any penatration & he came. literally like 2~3minutes of kissing & a little touching, thats it!!! he tries to stop it from happening mentally & even physically. to say he's "very sensitive" is an under statement!!! is it something i do or dont do? how can we fix this?? what can we (he) do?

My son may have been exposed to hand foot and mouth. He woke up this morning with a fever, sore throat, and headache. He now has the chills. I believe all of these are symptoms of HFM. I'm wondering when he is contagious to other children. I'm concerned that he may have exposed other children to the virus when he was playing with them yesterday. At that time he did not have any of these symptoms, though. He only just developed them this morning. Could you please tell me when the disease is most contagious or at the point in which it is spread to others?

My brother had a fever the fever subsided and now he is complaining of a headache that hurts behind the eyes on the side of head . he says when he bends over his head feels like it will explode . Im just worried about him and need some peace of mind or something.

My friend has a spot that he sees in one eye. The spot doesn't move unless he moves his eye. (Ie: not a floating spot) I looked to see if there was anything in it but I really couldn't tell. I washed out his eye and it didn't help. Should he be concerned?

My husband has a temp of 102.5. He is freezing and yet can't cool down. Shaking really bad and his heart feels like its beating really fast. Please let me know if he should go in or wait it out. I don't know what to do for him or what to tell him and its scaring me.

The last three months I have been experiencing spotting between periods, as well as some dull pain in my pelvic area. I have undergone a lot of personal changes in these last three months that resulted in a lot of stress. Is stress the cause for this, or should I see a doctor?

I just found out that I have been exposed to MRSA multiple times the last few days and am wondering if I should be tested before returning to work where I interact with up to 250 people in a day. The MRSA is from my Mother and its in her lungs.

Okay so 2 day's ago I fell on my foot because I ran and fell and tripped in a hole/ditch, it hurts to apply any pressure on it and I'm a 12 year old girl. I have done the "R.I.C.E" routine and I did it every other 20 minutes. I don't know what else to do, I told my mom and she wont take me to the doctor because she thinks it's probably just a sprain and they can't do anything about a sprain. So can you please tell me what it might be and what else to do about it that would be a BIG help! Thanks so much! ~Sarah M.

My husband has had a really bad cough for a few days. Yesterday he started having a sore throat, dizziness, and loss of appitite. Today he is still dizy, light-headed, cold, then hot, with a temp of 102, and he fainted in the shower. After he fainted he laid back down, took some tylenol, and ate a bit soup. Since then his temp went down to 100. He doesn't want to see a Dr unless he's still sick tomorrow. Could it be something serious that he should go in today?

Is it OK to use an Epi Pen with an expired expiration date? I haven't been stung just asking for information. Thank You

I was 5 days late with my last period (March 2-3). It lasted 2 days and I had large blood clots, my regular periords last around 4 days. Since my last period I have been experiencing low abdominal hemoraging type feeling and I am wondering what that may be. I did take a pregnacy test when I was late this last period and it was negative.
