At home allergy tests

from Jessica:
I have a bit of a negative reaction when i eat wheat or dairy - but it is impossible to make an appointment to see the doctor when i work full time! Are there any at home allergy tests that you would recommend to let me know if its worth seeking advice from a doctor?

Can bee allergies worse?

from Sarah:
My partner keeps bees - however when he has been stung before his arms swell up and are hot and tight to the touch. To me it looks like an allergy. He's not has any sort of anaphylactic reactions - but is it possible that it can worsen?

My newborn has very dry skin

Hi - my little girl is 4 days old and was born with really dry skin. My midwife has told me to use olive oil on her skin but she cries when I do. I think it might be hurting her. Can you give me some advice and perhaps an alternative cream please?

Testicle not 'hanging' correctly

On behalf of Barney: I have recently noticed that my left testicle doesn't seem to be 'hanging' as it normally does. When I look in a mirror, I have noticed that it is quite tight and high. This has caused my scrotum to develop a 'flap' under the testes. There is no pain or other symptoms but should...

Is age a factor to be considered?

On behalf of Lynn:
Is there a need for more frequent checkups as a person reaches a particular age or do prostate problems become more common at a certain age group?

What could it be?

On behalf of Sarah:
My partner recently found a lump in his testicle. The doctor said it was nothing serious - but it still hasn't gone away. Where should he go to get a second opinion?

Needing to pee more

I have recently started having to go to the loo more - particularly during the night, even when I haven't drunk much prior to going to bed.

Mobile phones and testicular cancer

I have 2 teenage boys who constantly carry their mobile phones in their front trouser pockets. Do I need to be concerned about the possibility of them getting testicular cancer from this? You read so much in the press but whenever I mention it to them they brush it off as me being a nag!!! Thank you...
