Athlete's Foot During Pregnancy??

I was just wondering if anyone has experienced athlete's foot during pregnancy? I'm 32 weeks pregnant and my foot has been itchy for the last few days. My husband looked at it and he thinks it's athlete's foot. I've never had it before and have no idea how I got it but am now wondering if there are safe medications I can use while pregnant. It's the weekend, so I doubt I'll be able to reach my OB. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

How to Get Rid of a Heel Spur

I have now had a heel spur for quite some time and it HURTS. Especially when I have been sitting or lying down for a while then go to get up. It will hurt all the way up to my ankle unless I do a lot of flexing my foot before getting up. That at least makes it bareable until I've walked on it for a little while and some of the pain goes away. I have added a dr scholls shoe pad along with a rubbery heel pad I found and I also found some arch supports to wear while barefoot or with shoes that helps with my heel but actually makes my arch...

Swelling After Delivery

I gave birth 1 week ago to my daughter, and afterwards, my nurse noticed that my feet were slightly swollen, but she said it was no big deal. Yesterday I noticed that they were getting pretty swollen, and today it's even worse and spreading up my calf and my arm. It's mostly on my right side, and my arm is a little numb. When I was in labor, after I got my epidural I could still feel pain on my right side, and they had to re-dose me. I just find it a little strange that my right side was the one that was giving me trouble with the labor...

Toe Walking & Shoe Inserts

Does anyone know where to go for to get shoe inserts for a child who is spending too much time toe-walking? My daughter still has not broken her habit of toe-walking. We are aware of the damaging physical side-effects this can cause and have been both monitoring her calves and working with her on counter exercises to maintain her muscle health. Fortunately, she has no muscle damage yet. Now we need to take action to help her break this habit, as her toe-walking is increasing. I've heard you need a prescription from the Pediatrician...

I haven't had much experience with broken bones (did fracture my toe about 10 years ago). Its getting purple and have sharp pain when I bend it. I have been icing it but when should I go see a dr? Even if its broken, they cant do much. Is it just piece fo mind to go to a dr? If I can wait until Monday, should I?

My Daughter Has a Wart :(

My 7yo daughter has had a bump on the underside of her wrist for a while now. At her well visit I asked the doctor about it and he said that it is a wart. He said we could leave it alone, try an over the counter remedy or have it frozen off in the dr's office (but that would be a bit painful). It doesn't seem to bother her and she doesn't know the stigma behind warts but I would like it gone. Occasionally she'll pick at it until it bleeds a little. I definitely don't want to put her thru anything painful. I also don't want to make a big...
