Hey /med/ I think i need some advice

Long story short, I recently entered into clinical research from a
nom-science discipline, through a combination of luck and an obsession with pharmacology.

I understand how lucky I am to have even got my foot in the door and want to ensure continued success.

I'm networking and working my ass off, but I don't want to fall behind on my personal med knowledge, amd want to gain a better understanding of the admistrative and operational aspects of research and hospital admin as a whole.

Anyone have any suggestuons for literature, best practices, tools, etc? Or transferred into a healthbscience field from a different profession?

Read the classics if you want an edge over your peers. Universities completely ignore classical works. I've found many novel constituents and uses of plants and other practices that could have real medical value, that have been entirely ignored because of the snooty attitudes produced by the modern medical community, and due to the nature of overspecialization leading to people not understanding or scoffing at classical terms. Like how everyone sees mercury in an old text and goes "THE FOOLS! Those dark age idiots!" and then fails to comprehend that MERCURY IS A SOLVENT (IE it's used to extract compounds in drug manufacturing, not the drug it's self.) and that the authors of books often put the fine details in code lurking in the drawings and margins due to the lack of copyright protections before the modern era, ensuring that only their own guild/students would understand the codes in the texts while the douchebags would just poison themselves.

like painkillers for headaches, sleeping pills for sleeping, antihistamines for allergies etc

I wonder if all that shit will add up in the end and contribute to dementia or something.

>ibuprofin least harmful
Despite it causing stomach, liver (it was the liver, right?), and central nervous system issues? Admittedly, this is in high quantities or with sustained issues, but ibuprofin is fucking brutal. I'm confident that it's the leading cause of many health issues had by US veterans after they get out, since the military's answer to every medical problem is "Drink a gallon of water and take a gram of ibuprofin every two hours"

All NSAIDs do that and opiates as well (do not let /opi/ tell you shit about the long-term physical effects of opiates because they don't know fuck all). Acetaminophen would be preferable if not for liver damage, as it does not pose risk to cardiovascular function save a temporary increase in BP. There's really no good options here. The best in terms of side effect profile is the endocannabinoid modulator, and this might be the future direction painkiller R&D goes down since it seems to come with the least generalized risk.

This isn’t a real medical or health condition, but has anyone tried Minoxidil for growing fuller facial hair? It’s the chemical in Rogaine.

I used the 2% solution regularly for a few months last year and saw some results but not much. Now I’ve decided to give 5% a go and have noticed some results within a couple weeks. I’ve never been able to grow much facial hair so kind of excited but I’m not holding my breath. I believe it only works for half of participants.

So basically, I've been told by a lot of women that I ejaculate A LOT. However, when I'd ever masturbate, I'd observe a normal amount. Until I did it with blue balls. Essentially had to stop having fun due to go getting called into work. I had enough pain I had to do something (couldn't even walk normally). So I masturbated, and holy fuck shit. It pooled enough it was spilling onto the floor, and I had a sort of barely on faucet effect. I'm being very serious when I say it could have been close to 10-15 Tablespoons.
Now, at first it was the most amazing experience me and Handgela shared. But could this be a downside? I'm thinking of asking my doctor. But I'd rather get advice here before I have an awkward candid talk with him.

I dont feel like making my own thread considering my problem is also about masturbation and ejaculate.
I couldn't cum a couple times with my last girl and the only time i did was by jacking it. I guess it's
>Delayed ejaculation, also sometimes called impaired or
>retarded ejaculation,
>a condition in which a man can get an erection, but he can't ejaculate easily, so it takes an abnormally long time for him to climax and ejaculate

how long do i have to abstain from masturbation till i can cum with a girl like normal again?

Skin Infection and Medical Record Concerns

File: 1520511628540.png -(91278B / 89.14KB, 600x500) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size. Skin Infection and Medical Record Concerns
25 year old male. 3 or 4 days ago I noticed a couple infected looking hair pores in the right of my groin where it meets the hip joint, behind the testicles off to the side and away from the anal region. Sensitive, but I washed myself down good in the shower and kept up hygiene, things seemed to be improving.

Forgot to shower last night, then when I went to a little bit ago it'd enlarged to a region about 3.5" long and 1" wide at the widest point. Skin is peeling back, but no bleeding. Washed it out gently but thoroughly with warm soapy water, but it stung like a mofo.
It's been roughly 4 months since I've had sex, so I'm pretty sure it's not that. I can include a picture if needed.

No fever, pain, or swelling of the extremities around the infected tissue at the moment.

I haven't been to a doctor in nearly 4 years though. Is it something I need to go to Urgent Care for, or is it safe to find GP and wait on an appointment from them? I'm still on my parents' health insurance which is pretty decent through WA state, but I don't want to waste the UC's time or my money if I don't have to. I'm just shocked how quickly it progressed from a relatively small reddish region to basically a full force peeling sun burn.

Other than immediate concern for my condition, I'm worried about being honest about my drug use and being labeled as a drugseeker when that's legitimately not my intention. I stopped a moderate 2 year kratom habit a week and a half ago, but goofed yesterday and took 40mg of hydrocodone. I'm really concerned about either not getting proper attention/treatment because of it, or getting something put in my record that would stop me from getting medication if I shatter my back in a car wreck etc.

could be an allergic reaction. changed soaps/detergents/cleaning products/dryer sheets lately? or move/visit a new location?

also its extremely unlikely but it is possible to pick up an STI from a public restroom, can you recall using one before the onset of all this?

Try an anti-fungal treatment. Either something OTC or even some thyme oil. (or be a man and pour some strega on your groin.) This is a region that is likely to have more moisture regularly and as such would be more prone to fungal infection.
>washing
What type of soaps are you using? Also did you change clothes soap recently? If the PH of your skin has been messed up, it can make you more prone to fungal infection.
>worried about doc calling out being a fiend
Dude, you're seeing somebody about a skin problem on your groin. Who the hell does drugs through their groin anymore? I'm a fucking Wizard and I hardly even rub datura salve on my balls, so the odds of a doc making that connection are unlikely. You're overreacting.

Anyhow, is there swelling? Is there puss? Are there signs of ulceration? If not, odds are that this is fungal and not bacterial (fungal infections can happen immediately after bacterial ones though, if conditions are right and you broke the skin dealing with the bacterial infection, and likewise scratching fungal infections can lead to bacterial ones) so give it a cream and see if it gets better, while watching it regularly. This is a horrible spot for a bad infection as it's a sensitive area next to major arteries and your balls, so do not hesitate to go to a doctor if you see this spreading. Just get some antifungal cream though, ok?

Hey guys,

I don't know if this a stupid question or not but I'd really appreciate a serious answer from any nurse or someone with medical knowledge. This girl was on top of me the other day and I was wearing underwear and pants and she was wearing short shorts but her thighs were rubbing on my stomach. Her genitals were completely covered. Is there any risk of STD with this kind of exposure?

In the US, seek medicaid. They should allow you some sort of emergency request even after if you went to an ER.
Do it with your states medicaid. Call the medicaid line, wait wait wait. Look it up online first for emergency medicaid
so you don't your credit screwed up.

Medicaid, if you do not make enough money, freaking get it. Find a primary care DR practice that accepts medicaid.

Will save anybodys ass if something happens. Urgent care centers accept it. You would be essentialy insured, so no, I don't have insurance. It's basically right there. Go to an ER if you cannot hack it. State hospitals have 'generally' dental
days. Low income. Like tuesdays wednesdays, arrive early. Research and get it done in whatever manner.

As for opis, try with some antihistimine. Like generic benedryl, diphenhydramine 50 mgs. Sold as nightime sleep aid.
Dollar stores have these. Take like like 400 600 miligrams of ibuprophen would compliment these. As for the otc I would exceed 50 mgs of diphen and not hight that 800 mgs. Together these should work for pain safely.

A mixture of Clove oil and Cocaine will numb that tooth right up. If you're looking to try something experimental to fix the tooth though, then I suggest cleaning it out the best you can and then taking a small sponge made of collagen that is saturated in Tideglusib and insert it into the hole of the tooth. It should repair the dentin, though you'll still have to kill the infection.

Hi /med/,

I would really appreciate some sound medical advice from any nurse, med student, or doctor that happens to be scrolling these boards. Also some anxiety tips. So I'm terrified of getting an STD. Everytime I sleep with someone I'm miserable until I get my 12 week test results for everything including both types of herpes, which people usually don't even test for. I'm a 20 year old white male and was vaccinated for HPV when I was 18. Every red bump i get down there I go to my dermatologist and he tells me its nothing. Recently i discovered a white bump that looked like a wart to me where my shaft meets my scrotum and i freaked out. I went to the dermatologist the next day and he looked at it and called it a skin tag and froze it off. I asked him if it was HPV related and he said no and that they are caused by rubbing of the skin. I can't convince myself that its nothing to worry about. What do i do? Anybody else have these?

none of that will kill you. abstinence will prevent stds. monogamy greatly reduces risk as well. if those aren't options, I recommend honest conversations with your partners and use of condoms. Other things to consider are hygene, do you shower often? after sex? do you wear clean underwear? do you keep it dry down there? are you allergic to latex in condoms?
Your pic is useless, but better than having to see your penis in the OP

I kind of fiended on some acid a week ago and I think I have gotten some anxiety regarding vascular constriction. I wanna do more shit but every time I get a sting in my wrist or in my foot I worry that I'm on the path to a heart attack or stroke.
I don't even know if this is the right board to put this. Can I monitor my heart rate in a way and say "okay over this limit is enough." I'm trying to hole on ephenidine but I don't want to fuck it up and then fuck me up.

How do I wake up /med/? For my entire life, I really have never been able to become a functional human being on less than 10 hours of sleep. I've tried everything. I've tried coffee, shit doesn't work. I've tried adderall, I just roll over and go into hypersleep. I've tried just trying to sit down or be uncomfortable, but I'm so tired that I feel actual physical pain just from the effort.
My sleep schedule is definitely a contributing factor and I've tried to change it, but I can never go for more than a few days before something happens that prevents me from getting in bed by 10, usually work related, and even missing that by an hour wrecks me the next day.

How do I kick myself awake? I'm seriously considering just trying to hurt myself in the morning to jolt my senses, but I don't know if that will even work. I'm getting 8+ hours so I don't know what I cant do to tell my body that I don't need any more.

Hey, I ate two cheese sticks that expired last September. I bought them yesterday, so what the hell, Kroger? They didn't taste quite right, but nothing alarming like mold. I was about to eat a third, but that stick did reek of mold.

I tried inducing emesis with the back end of an ice cream scoop, it took ten minutes to heave up two tiny blobs of cheese/spit. I have a strong stomach, not much of a gag reflex, and almost never puke unless I am very ill. How do I safely get this stuff out of my body?

What happened? You would 'probably' be feeling sick by now if something was wrong. I ate a big bite of pizza that as like 1 week old or longer. Kept a hidden pizza to eat at a pizza place I worked for, to munch on with a few choice people.

Reached under the pizza landing place and grabbed a slice of the old pizza.
Instantly knew what was up. Could of just said to manager take over and barfed outside instantly. Should have. Was sick for a week until I barfed a lot, very bad stuff. Not to pizza people, pizza is know to go bad pretty quick. If it is left out overnight, let it be known it could make you very sick. (I should have just barfed right away.)
