Common Questions and Answers about Pediatric aids in america


Avatar f tn For the most part, the rates of HIV are substantially lower in rural than urban areas. However, HIV/AIDS certainly is not absent in less populated areas of the US, and in some geographic areas the rates may be nearly as high as in urban areas. The rate may be higher in certain rural areas of the southeast than in urban areas in many urban areas.
Avatar n tn I have just been told my 5year old daughter has an abscess on front tooth (she has no pain though so I find it odd) The dentist has looked at the xray and suggested we extract her front tooth as it has a possibility of damaging her permanent teeth. I'm really worried that this will be traumatic for her. (I live in South America and don't speak much spanish so the language barrier is also a huge problem) I am unsure of what the procedure is.
Avatar f tn We once thought maybe the immunizations were a factor but that has currently been ruled out as not having any substantial evidence to support it. Now in my grandsons case, he was born with it. Is this only in America or is this problem worldwide and what are your theories as to its origin.
Avatar m tn What I have found in previous posts was the doctors saying that hiv was rare in heterosexual women, rare in sex workers in America, or she probably don't have HIV or something like that. What im wondering is this, in that website that ww2008 sent me it says there are around 1,000,000 to 1,200,000 people living with hiv/aids in the US. I know thats a high number but wouldn't that number seem low since there are around like 300 million people in the US or something like that.

Avatar n tn My 6 year old Nephew received a naso lacrimal duct drainage, an entropion and paranasal sinuses operation a year ago in South America, because one of his eyes was always dripping. He got the same operations when he was one year old. However, his eye continues dripping, sometimes when it is humid or when he gets allergies, but sometimes out of the blue, which has caused him to have infections.
Avatar f tn in america right, i am from africa and it is compulsory, lol, by law, lol. If a woman is pregnant she MUST be tested for hiv. It is just so different how things work here.

Avatar m tn If you live in America the Health Department in each state does conduct free testing. If you live in America you need to google the health department in your state and you can find info on testing. What makes you think you have HIV or a STD.
4455258 tn?1354834496 There has been a language barrier due to her profound hearing loss in both ears. She does hear w/the use of hearing aids, but it has put her behind in speech. She is a LOT better than she was and basically talks non-stop now, but the only thing I can get out of her is 'it's blurry.' From what we've been told there is only about 2% of the population with her vision, which would make sense as to why I've never been able to find someone.
Avatar m tn No, otherwise everyone in America would be infected from sharing cigarettes, kisses and drinks.
Avatar f tn I need to know if in New Jersey (Bergen County) I can find medical institution where I can bring my doughter for skin reactions to something that we don`t know what, without ensurance.
Avatar f tn I never lived life thinking about race or color, but it just hit me that I will be raising a black boy in America. Its so sad with all the police killings of unarmed blackmen in America. In fact it recently happened in my neighborhood. To think that one day my son will be a blackman in America scares me. Any other mothers having or have black children worry about this?
2170635 tn?1357911686 I was surprised to see in 'one born every minute USA' (I'm in the UK) a patient give in and ask for an epidural and the midwife reply "well yeah of course, you wouldnt let a dentist pull your teeth without pain relief" if you ask for it here you would be told "but you're doing so well, how about we wait 10mins and see then" they tend to discourage it here...
206807 tn?1331936184 I need yalls help. I’ve read this over and over and still can’t conclude which one is male. From what I understand, the real female (I don’t want to turn this into a PC argument) is on the right but she doesn’t look like a male or a trans gender BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — A couple in Ecuador is making history with a unique pregnancy: The father-to-be is carrying the baby of his transgender partner.
Avatar m tn Overall prevalence has increased since the first case was detected in 1984. El Salvador has the second-largest number of people living with HIV/AIDS in Central America, behind Guatemala. As of November 2009, 23,731 HIV/AIDS cases have been reported in the country (National HIV/AIDS Program of the Ministry of Health). The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates that in 2007, 35,000 Salvadorans were living with HIV (UNAIDS 2008 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic).
Avatar n tn 3) Do a search on the Internet for various non-profit groups (gay and lesbian community organizations, Volunteers of America, HIV/AIDS community organizations) that offer free testing. Such groups often have the 20-minute rapid test, so you know even sooner. A simple Internet search is usually enough to give you several testing options. It's not even necessary to do it at your doctor's office.
Avatar f tn It is highly unlikely that these abnormal eye movements are due to any food allergy. My suggestion is you try and get the child in to see a pediatric ophthalmologist. With this type of problem your visiton on October 21 should be with the doctor and not the nurse practitioner.
Avatar n tn If you felt REALLY strongly about it, you might go to Africa, or volunteer in the inner cities in America to teach about condoms and diseases.
Avatar n tn well good luck to you we do have some wonderful specialist Doctors here in America , keep in touch and let us know how your child is doing .
Avatar n tn Check with your local dental society in regards to any services that may be available to your son in regards to his missing teeth. They may be able to refer you to further resources that are either public or private. The usual process I would imagine is to maintain the teeth that he has to continue to have a cosmetic smile and something functional.
Avatar n tn I sincerely advise you to consult a pediatric surgeon or a pediatric urologist and get urinalysis and ultrasound or CT done to confirm a diagnosis. Hope it helps.Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn HIV, AIDS and STD's are worldwide. They just don't reside in North America. Perhaps this escort slept with another person who lived in the US and did it without a condom. Like Judy said, vitamins don't stop you from contracting diseases. Just protect yourself.
