Default Skin problem

Hope there is a dermatologist here.

I have small black dot like boils on my waist and some on back and hips and my highs. Totally 10 -15 dots. There are intermittently itching and I scratch.

So far I have visited 3 skin specialists, none of them have been able to solve the problem. Prescribed so many tablest to reduce itching and creams like clofonate, Holvate what not?

Pls suggest what to do? I am afraid they may leave permanet marks and I will damage the skin by scratching.

This info may help... This problem is there since 3 months. 4-6 months back I had lot of bed bugs biting me on my lower back.

Thanks in advance!

An Esophagologist is not an ENT Specialist.He or She is a supra super specialist (just to demystify I use the term).There are very few Esophalogists all over the world.But many of them are from USA.
Jassi its your throat, I know,so its upon you whether you will ignore it or not.
*
Srishiva your condition is completely different from jassi,you may have chronic Pharyngitis or chronic tonsillitis or some minor or major primary immunodeficiency disorder.Proper diagnosis is important as,chronic some infection same lead to serious condition when your body defense mechanisms are poor,like bacterial endocarditis.Its better to have a check from Medicine Dept./MD medicine or equivalent.

To all from this thread who have sent me PM in last 2 weeks : 1.To "D":Please,I want to remain anonymous here 2.To "K"Obviously I will not give my address of my office/Hospital to consult/give date etc. its just unethical for me. 3.To "R":I cant criticize any prescription /advice of other Registered doctor. 4.To the Last person,No,even you are legal relative, I will not disclose it to you.

Goodness... I'd never heard the word before, and misunderstood that it was the US name for an ENT man.

I think we could have a whole thread on replies to personal messages received by the professionals here. Very entertaining

(No offence to the messengers: I do not forget that that which is superficially entertaining, has a real, human story behind it.)

I have no problem.I can post the problems for which I was PM ed and the answers without telling the name of the patients/Team-Bhp ids.Infact,it will be like an awareness campaign.Only if you want it.Ofcourse,a moderator's green signal is required.

Folks,

I need Your advice/feedback on this.

My Wife had a fall from her scooter a month and half ago and since then, she's nursing a clavicle fracture on her right shoulder and a torn ACL in the right knee. After many consultations, two Doctors affirmed that the torn ACL needs to be surgically corrected.

Now the confusion is which Doctor, to get the surgery done from. I have been consulting the following doctors for the past month or so.
1) Dr. Thomas Chandy, Chief of Orthos, Hosmat hospital, Bangalore
2) Dr. Kishore Subbaiah, consultant - Sagar Apollo hospital, Bangalore

I have been hearing from Dr. Kishore and the associate physio that Dr. Chandy never does the surgery himself but leaves to his juniors. I heard a similar story from an ex-colleague has well. Dr. Chandy, however, has personally assured us that he would perform the surgery himself.

Would appreciate if any of You have prior experiences with ACL surgery and the above mentioned Doctors. (looking to get the surgery done by end of this month)

TIA.
Rocky.

are you sure its a psychiatrist and not a psychologist?
Without opening a can of worms here - both can do consultation and therapy, however a psychiatrist may typically prescribe drugs to handle the symptoms vs go after the underlying cause.
Again - this is not advice, just purely what i know from psychiatrists and psychologists in friends and immediate family

Let me rephrase it to a Psychologist please. My ignorance in this field is pardonable.

Any references in here ?

Default Need info about cord blood banking

Hi Folks,

This may be slightly OT to this thread, but anyway, here goes.

We are expecting our first child in Jan '10, and are planning to go in for cord blood banking. I had a few questions about that, some of which were answered by a couple of TBHP members after I posted my queries on the Parenthood thread.

Some more questions that I had are as follows:

1. Is there any institution in India (or abroad) who has actually made use of banked cord blood to cure a disease? I keep reading that there are lots of cases, but haven't got any references from the companies' web site.
2. Can the banked cord blood be used to treat diabetes or is it useful to treat only diseases related to malignancy in blood cells (like cancer)?
3. How does one decide the optimum duration for which the cord blood needs to be stored?
4. We are leaning towards LifeCell, Chennai for the cord blood banking procedure. Can the Docs / people working in allied fields on the forum give any advise about this company's reliability and professionalism? Are there any better options? If yes, which are they?

I have researched a lot on the net, but the number of websites which do recommend this procedure are matched by those who don't; and that hasn't made my decision making any easier. Also, I'm just an average middle class guy; that's why I need to think not once, twice, thrice, but at least 10 times before taking the plunge.

Any other advise/suggestions/info related to this topic is most welcome!

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,
Vikram
