Biting nails to the quick

Common Questions and Answers about Biting nails to the quick


Avatar m tn I have heard the dog cries and yelps the whole time but the nails get trimmed and the dog gets over it. Good luck, I do not recommend using any drugs... let the dog cry if it must.
472570 tn?1274689487 Last summer I seemed to have become sensitive to bites to microscopic critters, apparently. I used to leave the windows open during the day and night. At first the bites began sporadically in the evenings during dusk. They would bite my toes and between my fingers. As time passed the bites increased even during the day. A couple months later I awoke in the middle of the night with a swarm I couldnt see on my scalp and all over.
410475 tn?1262945967 The biting tends to be hard enough to pierce the skin. I'm a firm advocate against declawing for a numerous reasons, and one main one is the high probability of a permenant negative personality change. In my 15 years of working in kitty placement, we'd get a fair number of declawed cats whose owners had given them up becuase of the dramatic difference in the cats personality after declawing.
Avatar f tn I pick until it bleeds and forms a scab, then i just pick the scab off! (which is the part I like i guess)..I have to resort to getting fake nails put on because I cant pick with them on..I had acrylic nails constantly for over a year and on my way home driving from getting them taken off I immediately stuck my fingers in my mouth and started picking away! Is this just a habit? Its disgusting That I even want to put my fingers in my mouth I know, but I truely cannot help it.
800144 tn?1237643497 the pink part of the nail at the base of the nail. Clip close but leave about 1 mm. between teh clip and the quick. She does need to "play" hunting skills. As she grows older the 'play' will become with toys. If you are afraid your other cat is being harmed, don't. If he is being harmed, he will fight back. He knows she is very young and will tolerate her aggression only so far before he decides enough is enough and then he will put her in her place.
Avatar n tn I became borderline obsessed with this, not being able to wait till the next day to get back in the mirror. I am now 30 years old and still have the same compulsive disorder but now I've moved on to people in my family. Mainly anyone that will let me "pick" them. I feel so much satisfaction from a pimple the blows up or a blackhead that I can successfully pull out of each pore. In each "session" I bring with me tweezers, a pin and a lamp so I can see even better.
Avatar m tn Actually I thought the original blumax post was going to get a lot uglier than it did at least to this point anyway, I mean right down to the slamming of individual past and present posters for which we just got a small glimpse of in the last couple of paragraph posted by blumax. I think that was the lead up to the full story for which blumax was about to unleash if allowed to but not all on one thread. Duno, just a gut fellin, O'well.
Avatar n tn I recently had a yeast infection and since I'd had them before and instantly knew what it was, I decided to try Monistat 3 day instead of making a trip to the doctor for the Diflucan, which is what I had done in the past. While I was using it I noticed that over the 3 day period it was getting harder for me to fit the application in and by day 3 I had completely swollen and it felt like it was on fire!
Avatar m tn Like many this is where it took over taking more than prescribed, drug seeking behavior ,stronger pain meds more anything to work longer harder faster I eventualy stoped smoking pot and started taking benzos in its place. So i started taking suboxone about 2 years ago to honsetly not have to spend the money for the pain meds but still contniued to take hydro, oxy later in the eveing. I was getting the sub from a friend who was going to a clince but i have never been.
318181 tn?1336447096 As many of you know, we've had family in town for the past 16 days, and then my husband was laid off in the middle of their visit, which forced us to make a decision whether or not to continue with the IVF. We have decided to go ahead with it, since insurance wouldn't have covered it anyway...and my DH has a temporary contracting job at the moment, so hopefully everything will work out.
376008 tn?1312484756 It could be that he does not want to take the time to do his business, so to speak, because it will take him away from playtime, or something more enjoyable. I knew one kid who hated the smell-- and held it it until he actually DID develop a serious medical condition.
612551 tn?1450025775 Foot baths in Epsom Salt seems to help, but he continues to lick and the feet he licks the most are the worst... I think it possible most of the problem is his licking. I have tried to divert his attention with a chewy and that lasts for about 20 seconds...he gets bored easily. I am looking for something I can put on his paws that will taste bad and discourage his licking.
Avatar n tn I would take Naproxen or vicodine to to the edge off the pain. The burning pain went away in Oct. but came back this week. Maybe there is something to it being brought on by stress, 3 of my vehicles were smashed by a stolen car while sitting in my drive way, and one was in my garage.
Avatar m tn Other times, my ear or eye starts to hurt. It seems reasonable to me that tensing all the muscles on that side of my face might irritate the optic nerve? But then, I'm no doctor.
Avatar dr m tn Have you tried various home remedies, over-the-counter medications or even prescription medications with no help? If you answered yes to any of the above, what you will read below will show you how critical it is to breathe well through your nose. Chronic mouth breathing can not only affect your quality of life, but your life, period.
Avatar n tn One time they came to my house just to drop something off real quick and left her an the car and she was mad so she pottied on the drivers seat. Other than that she is so great. I never let my kids around any of my dog's when they are eating or chewing on a bone. I never had them do anything to my kids, I just never wanted to take that chance so I always taught my kids to leave them alone while they ate.
685623 tn?1283485207 I am going to get back to the pet food blogs momentarily, but I wanted to take a quick moment to talk about declawing cats. This was a blog idea first put forth by JoyRenee, commenting in my introductory blog. In my experience in practice as well as with the NUMEROUS cats I have kept over the years, I think I can give you a pretty good understanding of the reasons behind both sides of this debate. Removing the cat's front claws, or onychectomy, is a procedure performed only by veterinarians.
Avatar n tn of the nail, you can do serious damage and cause infection. We have a cat who lost a toe because of nail cutting. The foot swelled up and the toe had to be amputated (how we got 'em, owners left him at pound after being told cost of surgery). The first nail cutting session must have gone badly for him, if he attacked you it was probably more painful then you realized.
Avatar n tn Dear Doctors and experts of this forum, Request you to spare your precious time for my concern. I had been to a body to body massage parlor(Female to Male), the lady who massaged me said that she is "carrying a baby"(Her waist and stomach was big). I sucked her breast for some time. I did not experience any fluid in mouth during this. Is it possible for her to lactate before giving birth to child.
Avatar n tn HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions, therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.
181549 tn?1277211196 I know how hard it is to cut the nails yourself. You have to be careful you don't clip so far down you knick the vein. And I feel confident in saying that the chances of transmission that way must be astronomically small, if they exist at all. If you're the one infected, you'd have to have an open wound on your skin when you handle Poppin, he'd have to touch the blood with his feet, then, before the blood dried, he'd have to come in contact with an open would on your daughter's skin.
Avatar m tn It's important to the cat's health and well-being to keep the nails trimmed and to keep the cat's stress level down as much as possible. The cat will still never like getting her nails trimmed, but she'll be more likely to cooperate with you if you provide something for her to look forward to after the nail trimming session is over.
Avatar n tn The callus on my right toe also got really dry and itchy to the point where it cracked open. I fixed that with moisturizers. the left one is starting to show. I have soaked them in vinegar for a week, and they dont get worse, but they dont improve either. I have kept my feet moisturized every day. again...dont worsen, but dont improve. My job is VERY stressful...

529981 tn?1212853666 My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair.
Avatar m tn If I fingured her with a small cut on my finger (from biting my nails) would that be a risk? Not sure if it was bleeding at the time. Well it was not dripping blood or I would have noticed that but it looked like there was some dry blood from earlier? I understand that 12 weeks is the "rule" but is it true that most people will convert by 6 weeks? if so why is 12 weeks still the "rule" in Canada and the US.
Avatar n tn 0 weeks after the fingering. The blood was drawn and sent to a lab where the Bayer Centaur HIV 1/O/2 ELISA was performed and returned a negative result - got the result after an agonizing wait of 6 days. Over the weekend I experienced diarrhea and later that weekend and early the next week I began to develop a sore throat. Towards the middle of that week I had a very bad headache with congestion, which felt like a bad sinus infection, so I called the doctor and he ordered me some Zithromax.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar m tn I dont know what to do, its so embarrasing to have to apologize to the other parents everyday. May I add that he's very active and very playful and can be the sweetest thing. Im not exactly sure what triggers this behavior and its driving me crazy. any suggestions would help. Thanks.
