I believe what's on my arms for years are called Petechia, though a number of those spots are brown. I also believe they are increasing in numbers over the years. @.@;
Does anyone think I should go see a doc for that?
See a dermatologist. What could it hurt?
Petechiae should not be brown, are you sure it is not a mole?
If a mole is increased in size, or change in color, or bleeding, you should see a doctor.
Not exactly worried, but am curious how and why it happened. Also curious what they really are. @.@;
Guo Xiang - I agree with Han Solo. Petechiae are not brown colored. They look like little red pinpoint dots that do not blanch (or disappear if you press down on the spot). Besides, petechiae on the body usually need to be further investigated. For example, your physician should probably order a blood test to make sure there is no blood clotting problem. Petechiae on the face, however, can sometimes simply be due to forceful coughing, crying, or vomiting. Your spots could be moles. It's hard to tell unless a physician evaluates them. Good luck!
I had an open wound a few days ago. I band-aided it up but it doesn't seem to be healing properly.
I am suspecting a staph infection, I tried going to a doctors clinic today, but they were closed, I'll try again on Monday.
But for now, how would I go about dealing with this if it might be staph? I've heard doctors will prescribe antibiotics. Will antisceptic help?

Is this normal? Two nights ago, I did not sleep well. My tummy was a bit discomfort. But I do not experience diarrhoea/stomach upset. Appetite was poor. Yesterday night, I slept better, from about 12 am to 8.30 am. But again, appetite is poor. Do not feel like eating anything. No fever. The only symptom is that stomach is a bit "heavy".
I have lately been feeling a choking sort of sensation in my throat and this comes and goes. It's brought on by eating food which I find distasteful, over use of vocal chords or any discomfort in the throat. I've taken something which is meant to counter acid reflux but it doesn't seem to help. I don't understand why the discomfort occurs. Sometimes even when I wear a tshirt that is loose around the neck it feels like I'm being gagged.
triggers it. Do you meant that you cannot breath too?
If you are getting proton pump inhibitor, such as esomeprazole or pantoprazole in the optimal dose e.g 40mg per day, and avoiding certain food, and still have that feeling- I suggest that you talk to your doctor to get some investigations such as a gastroscopy.
For someone who only has bowel movement once a month, where do all the food go? Especially since the person isn't fat and stomach isn't swollen.
Can a person develop a sexually transmitted infection (STI) if they have no sexual contact with another person?
Also, if a person has multiple sex partners, all of whom are free of STIs, how can one of them catch an STI? Is this situation really plausible - to have clean partners and not get an infection somewhere down the line?
Other ways of getting STI can be from mother to unborn baby; or via breastfeeding.

The only thing I need to know is that I don't know anything.
There are wart paints that you can apply.
I got sneezing attacks and runny nose that comes and goes. It usually happens early in the day and at night, but not while I'm at work. Should I take an allergy medicine or something? It doesn't seem like a cold.
I just love how you Captivate My Mind
