[APPLAUSE]
>>LISA: LET’S GO DOWN THE LIST. STINKY URINE, CHECK SMELLY
FEET, CHECK; EXCESSIVE SWEATING, CHECK.>>JIMMY: I’M ASSUMING YOU’RE
RUNNING DOWN THE LIST WE’VE COVERED. NOT TALKING ABOUT ME?>>LISA: YES.>>JIMMY: TODAY WE HAD A FEW
MORE TO THAT LEVEL OR LESS. HERE’S HOW WORKS. YOU ASKED THE QUESTIONS. YOU REMAIN ANONYMOUS AND
THERE’S NO TOPIC OFF LIMITS AND WE GET THE ANSWERS. THIS IS THE GUY WHO PROVIDES
THOSE ANSWERS. THIS IS DR. CHRIS SNYDER. HE’S THE CHIEF HOSPITALIST WITH
PENINSULA REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER. THANK YOU FOR COMING IN.>>GREAT TO BE BACK.>>JIMMY: YOU ARE A FOUNTAIN OF
INFORMATION. THE FIRST QUESTION WE’VE GOT IS
I’VE HAD ONE FEELS AND LOOKS LIKE AN ULCER ON THE TIP OF MY
TONGUE FOR THREE WEEKS NOW. WHAT CAN BE DONE FOR
RELIEF/HEALING? I’VE TRIED GARGLING WITH SALT
WATER.>>LISA: THOSE ARE
>>THEY HURT. MY DAUGHTER GETS HIM
FREQUENTLY. CAUSES THOSE. THE MAJORITY OF THEM ARE
BENIGN, WHICH MEANS NOTHING BIG. YOU’VE GOT A KIND OF WATCH
THEM. THEY LAST ANYWHERE FROM 2 TO 4
WEEKS DEPENDING ON THE OF THE ULCER. BUT THEY HURT. THERE’S NOT A LOT YOU CAN DO
FOR THEM. OVER-THE-COUNTER ADVIL, TYLENOL
FOR PAIN, BUT USUALLY IT’S DURING EATING. SPICY FOODS NOT THE BEST THING
TO THROW ON A SORE.>>LISA: IS THERE A WAY TO
PREVENT THEM?>>NOT REALLY. IN FACT A LOT OF IT IS GENETIC. THERE’S NO UNDERLINING
CIRCUMSTANCES. SOME OF THEM ARE CALLED BY
VIRUSES AND A LOT OF PEOPLE CONFUSE THESE WITH CANKER SORES
AND A LOT OF DIFFERENT NAMES FOR THEM. THE ONE THING YOU GOTTA WORRY
ABOUT IF YOU’RE A SMOKER TO TOBACCO OR ANY OF THOSE
UNFORTUNATE HABITS, THOSE THINGS CAN PURSUE POTATO CANCER
TWO. IF IT’S THERE FOR MORE THAN
THREE WEEKS AND IT CONTINUES TO ENLARGE OR CHANGE, ABSOLUTELY
GET IT CHECKED OUT.>>LISA: QUESTION NUMBER
HAVE WITH THE BARTENDERS CALL BARAT ON MY FINGERS. AT TIMES IT HURTS AND CAN
ANYTHING BE DONE ABOUT THIS?>>BAR ROT, YOU. IN COLLEGE. SO I CLEARLY UNDERSTAND THE
WATER CIRCUMSTANCES. WHEN YOUR HANDS ARE WET, DIAPER
RASHES ARE ANOTHER KIND OF WET ENVIRONMENT
BUT ANYTIME THERE’S A HUMAN ENVIRONMENT LITTLE PLANTS GROW
AND IS CALLED A FUNGUS. SO YOU CAN GET FUNGUSES AND
THOSE FUNGUSES ARE CLEARLY UNCOMFORTABLE ESPECIALLY IF YOU
CONTINUALLY FORCE WATER ON THEM. ANYTIME YOU HELP A PLANT GROW
AND A FUNGUS IS A PLANT YOU WATER AND FEED IT.>>LISA: IT SOUNDS LIKE
ATHLETE’S FOOT?>>VERY SIMILAR. THE BEST THING IS TO STAY AWAY
FROM THE WATER IF YOU CAN. AS A BARTENDER THAT’S ROUGH. THERE ARE OVER-THE-COUNTER
ANTIFUNGALS YOU CAN USE IN MOST OF THOSE WORK FINE. YOU CAN USE THEM TWO OR THREE
TIMES A DAY. THE DRYNESS IS A KEY. IN FACT I USED TO, USE LOW
TEMPERATURE BLOW DRYERS JUST TO KIND OF GIVE IT AN EXTRA
WHEN YOU GET OUT OF THE SHOWER AND ANY OTHER WHAT ENVIRONMENT
YOU CAN AVOID.>>JIMMY: BARAT. I’VE NEVER HEARD OF IT.>>LISA: ME NEITHER.>>JIMMY: THIS ONE I TEND TO
RELATE>>LISA: ME TO.>>JIMMY: WHY DO I FIND MYSELF
STARING INTO SPACE AT TIMES. I’M NOT LOOKING AT ANYTHING IN
PARTICULAR, I’M CAUGHT IN THE DAYS.>>YEAH. THE BLANK
I KIND OF FEELS GOOD, ACTUALLY.>>LISA: IT DOES.>>TO CHECK OUT AND IT’S
CHECKING OUT. IT IS YOUR BRAIN AND WE ARE NOT
SURE WHY 100 PERCENT OF ITS CAUSE, BUT IT IS A CHECK TIME
FOR YOUR BRAIN TO RESET ITSELF. USUALLY IT’S FROM INCREASED
ACTIVITY OR THOUGHT. SO ANYONE WHO HAS A LOT OF
STIMULATION. DRIVING IS ONE OF THOSE PLACES
YOU DON’T WANT TO DO BUT THERE ARE FOLKS WHO HAVE
THEY GET OVERSTIMULATED WITH TRAFFIC, TOO MANY LIGHTS, FOR
EXAMPLE AND THEY WILL CHECK OUT AND GET INTO A BLANK STARE
WHICH AGAIN, IF THE BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON YOU BETTER SNAP
OUT OF IT QUICKLY. NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT
IT. IT’S A NORMAL PHENOMENON. IF IT BECOMES TOO RECURRENT
THERE ARE TYPES OF SEIZURES THAT CAN CAUSE THEM IF THEY’RE
VERY FOR TO SEE YOUR PRIMARY CARE
DOCTOR AND GET EVALUATION FOR SEIZURE DISORDER. BUT THAT’S ONLY OF THEIR
FREQUENT I’M TALKING HOURLY. IT DOES GET TO THAT POINT WITH
SOME FOLKS AND WE HAVE TO TREAT THEM FOR SEIZURES.>>LISA: ALL RIGHT. HERE’S ONE I THINK A LOT OF
PEOPLE CAN RELATE TO THIS. SOMETIMES I DON’T GET AN
OPPORTUNITY TO BE LUNCH. I GET HOME AND BINGE. DOES THAT HAVE AN IMPACT ON MY
WEIGHT?>>YEAH. BINGING PERIOD HAS AN IMPACT ON
YOUR WAY. SKIPPING MEALS IS NOT GOOD. AGAIN, I THINK THE MAIN THING
IS YOUR BODY NEEDS FUEL THROUGHOUT THE DAY. IT’S HARD IN MY PROFESSION
IT’S NOT THE EASIEST TO STOP FOR LUNCH, DINNER OR BREAKFAST. BUT YOU NEED TO FEED THE FUEL
THAT YOU NEED FOR YOUR BODY. EAT APPROPRIATELY. BUT AGAIN, BINGING DOES NOT
CATCH YOU UP, MUCH LIKE SLEEP. YOU DON’T CATCH UP BECAUSE YOU
EAT MORE. YOU JUST
THE BODY IS A VERY EFFICIENT THING IF YOU FEED IT CORRECTLY. IF YOU PUT TOO MUCH COAL IN THE
FIRE, YOU’RE GOING TO CREATE POSSIBLY OTHER PROBLEMS IN A
LACK OF>>JIMMY: MAINTAIN A RIGHT.>>ABSOLUTELY. IF YOU’RE FEELING UNCOMFORTABLE
THAT SOMETHING YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.>>JIMMY: ALL RIGHT. LAST
MY HOME HAS HARD WATER. WE USE A WATER SOFTENER, BUT
SOMETIMES THE WATER LEAVES BEHIND STATES IN MY SHOWER. I’M CONCERNED ABOUT INGESTING
THIS WATER. SHOULD I BE?>>NO. IN FACT, THE HEALTH DEPARTMENTS
HAVE DONE A HUGE AMOUNT OF STUDIES ON THIS. MOST OF THE HARD WATERS FROM
CALCIUM AND MAGNESIUM AND THOSE ELEMENTS ARE CLEARLY
POTENTIALLY GOOD FOR YOU IN SOME CASES ESPECIALLY CALCIUM. SO NOW. YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT
THE STAINING. THERE ARE USUALLY ELEMENTS THAT
ARE NOT ABSORBED SO USUALLY GOES THROUGH YOU IF YOU DRINK
IT. AND THERE’S BEEN NO HEALTH
STUDIES WITH THAT. AND IF YOU DO HAVE A CONCERN
GET YOUR WATER TESTED IF WORRIED ABOUT BACTERIA. I WORRY MORE ABOUT INFECTION
PROBLEMS WITH CONTAMINATED WATER THAN THE ACTUAL MINERALS. THE MINERALS, MOST OF YOUR
TIME, THE BODY WILL ONLY ABSORB WHAT IT NEEDS.>>LISA: GOOD QUESTIONS. THANK YOU SO MUCH.>>JIMMY: [LAUGHTER]
