An Itch That No Scratch Could Kill

Possible Hypochondriac-filter. I have an itch that keeps showing up in the exact same place; around the top of my left shoulder-blade. Normally I wouldn't worry about it at all and think "Oh it's just an itch" but the fact that it keeps coming back pretty much in the same spot on a fairly frequent basis (every few hours or so) makes me question if this is something I should be worried about?

Is engaging in oral sex normal behavior for girls these days?

Is it socially acceptable for girls to engage in oral sex with different guys she has only met at parties? I just recently had unprotected oral sex with a girl on the belief that she had only one partner before me and that I would be able to get a long-term relationship out of it. You know that was the first time I had any kind of sex and according to her I'm still a virgin since oral sex doesn't count as "real sex". [more inside]

How do I keep my overactive pores clean?

Okay, so this is gross. Bear with me. The pores on my face are huge, and as a youth I had troubles with acne--now mostly solved, thank goodness. But my nose continues to produce icky white gunk, visible down there in the pores, and I have no way to keep it from producing. It's gross when I can actually squeeze it out. Mind you, no pimples are forming; my pores are just clogged with white goo. Is there is a specific product I can use or some miracle process that will help combat this? Thanks!

What's wrong with Granny?

My mom went to visit my 96 year old grandmother in the nursing home today and found her slumped over in the wheelchair, drooling, clammy and unresponsive. The nursing staff said this had happened before (we were not informed then). They didn't think she had stroke, only possibly that her blood pressure had dropped. However, it was within normal limits when they got her back into bed. She was able to say "no", when asked if she was in pain. The only medication she is on is aricept. Aside from her age, what would cause her to lose conciousness like this?

What should I put in my hot water?

My watercooler at work has a hot water feature which I would like to take advantage of. What are the best healthy substantial "meals" that require me only to add hot water? (Relevant info: At a cafe I used to frequent, there were packets of Bear Naked blueberry oatmeal that were outstanding. Now, Bear Naked's site doesn't list this as one of their products. Does this product still exist? I don't like Quaker Oats.)
