Ask the doctor
Does a recurring stinging internal back pain mean I might have liver damage ?
The recurring back pain may mean anything and should be investigated. It could be because of bone or joint abnormalities, there could also be liver or intestinal issues that also need to be excluded. Go to a doctor and give a full history. You will then be examined for a definitive diagnosis.
What is the best way to treat my child’s head lice?
Lice can be contracted by either interacting with animals or people that have them.
In the case of your child, if he or she is in creche or school please inform the teachers so the blankets and towels that the children might be sharing are thoroughly cleaned.
Please do the same as well. Shave the child’s head and get over-the-counter medication from a pharmacy to treat the child.
Are there immunisations I should have if I am preparing to fall pregnant?
There are no immunisations that are required to be taken before one falls pregnant. You can, however, visit your doctor and get a full check-up to see if there are any risks that need to be mitigated for. Do you have any chronic illnesses for instance, that may need to be under control? Also, discuss diet and what you need to stay away from to ensure a safe journey to birth.
