Broken Collarbone

Broken Collarbone My 15-year-old son broke his collarbone five weeks ago. He was discharged from the fracture clinic this week and told he could run but not take part in any sport for eight weeks. He is a goalkeeper for a soccer team, and due for trails. Can you suggest anything to help the bone continue to strengthen, so that it won’t break again when he returns to the pitch?

Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has had a lumpectomy and chemotherapy. Is there anything she can do to improve her situation?

Breast Pain

Breast Pain I am a 36-year-old mother of three. I’m healthy and active but for the past two years I've suffered breast pain, often quite severe. Lumps have been found several times but apparently they are harmless cysts. Recently had a full mammogram and scans and was given the all clear but I'm still in pain and I sometimes feel blue as I keep thinking something more sinister is going on. I was also diagnosed with an under active thyroid eight years ago and I now take a daily dose of thyroxine. Could you give me some advice?

Babies Allergies

Babies Allergies My twins were born at 32 weeks and are now a year old. They have constant colds, which I understand is a common problem with babies, especially premature ones. Their noses are always running and they have frequent coughs, Doctors say they can do nothing could you suggest anything?


Boils I suffer from large, painful boils every month during my periods. Sometimes I have eight at time. They appear under my breasts, in my armpits and in my groin. This had gone on for many years. I go to the doctor regularly to have them dressed. I am 49, so perhaps the menopause will help. Can you suggest anything?

Brown Spots

Brown Spots After the summer, I have suddenly become aware of a lot of disfiguring brown spots on only hands, legs and body. Is there a cream I could use to make them less noticeable or get rid of them please?

Burning Tongue and Throat

Burning Tongue and Throat I've had oral thrush for the past six months - my tongue and throat feel as though they're on fire and my lips swell. My GP has given me the usual medication but I have had an adverse reaction to it. I'm now on Nystatin pastilles but they're not working. Since it started I've had an ear infection and sinus problems, too. Can you help?
