Ask the doctor
I crave the taste of chalk daily. Is this normal? What should I do ?
This happens usually in people who are anaemic (low iron).
Please visit your doctor for a test.
Dear Doctor My seven-year-old son has bumps around his nose and lips that are dry and flaky. What is it and how do I treat it ?
Please take your son in to be seen by a doctor for a proper full history and examination. With bumps and lumps we cannot make a diagnosis from a limited history.
