You’ve been sending me some really interesting questions recently, so I decided to do another episode of Responding to Comments to get to the bottom of some medical mysteries. Today I talk about how often you should shower and wash your hair, why we kick when we sleep, what causes an itch, why we administer vaccines in the shoulder, ringing ears, runny noses from spicy food and hot wings, posture correctors, electrolytes, stomach growling, and the truth of getting 10,000 steps a day. Drop a comment down below if there’s a medical question you’d like me to answer!

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

Hi from France Dr. Mike, I like watching your video, it teaches me lots of vocabulary ! I had a question : why is it that when an intense or prolonged effort is made, one can feel pain in the stomach (or is it the bottom of the lungs ?) ? I witnessed it was even more painful during winter time when the body and the air are cold

I wash my hair every other day, or every two days. I asked my then hairstylist about it, and she recommended that for me, I should do every other day, to every two days. She also had mentioned that it's different for everyone, but since she knew my hair, that's why she made the recommendation for me.

For the gag reflex just hum. Most dentists will tell you to hum because it’s extremely hard to gag and hum since it uses similar muscles

I can always pop my neck, my knee can go out and I do it on accident when I am nervous, I am constantly itchy somewhere, it takes about an hour or more to fall asleep, my mom thinks I am a little A.D.D., my mind travels a crazy unusual amount, and my hair is always greasy even after taking a shower.

I don't wash my hair everyday. I wash my hair once a week, sometimes twice a week. I live in Az and is hot as H here, so I shower everyday. As a female, when I don't have to wash my hair, I take quick showers because I find it very important to always smell fresh...if you know what I mean😉

I would like to correct/add to the hair washing question :) As a hairstylist and someone with fine hair who has been through a pretty serious skin condition which made me unable to wash my hair for over 2 months, I can tell you both professionally and from experience that nobody - especially people with fine hair - should shampoo their hair more often than once a week. I do it every 2 weeks now, very often not because I need it, but to have that nice smell and my hair is better than it has ever been. Our natural oils are actually the best styling products, my hair feels much fuller, has way more volume than when I used to wash it every other day with volumizing products. Of course if you are someone who washes their hair very often you ajve to change that habit gradually, because right now your body is overproducing oils (because you keep washing them off), that is why your hair feels greasy. But if you gradually increase the time between washes, you will experience a positive change for sure. Or you can go cold turkey like I did (out of neccessity not to irritate my skin) but than you will have to go through a pretty ugly greasy period….also, you should never use conditikner on your scalp, only on the length/ends of the hair because it will make your hair greasy.

For the gag reflex one, I had that problem and it helps if you actively try to breathe through your nose instead of your mouth (worked for me anyway, thank you to my dentist)

I usually shower every 2-3 days, unless I need to. I wash my hair about twice a week, but I'll use dry shampoo between washings. I found that when I'm not obsessively washing everything, my skin and hair look and feel better. I feel like eliminating the amount of products used helps a lot too. I stopped using lots of perfumes and lotions (mostly because I have hamsters who are sensitive). Just a bit of body wash when I do shower, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, dry shampoo, face moisturizer and sunscreen. I use some coconut oil topically too (face, skin on my hair the evening before washing) instead of using lotions. But I worked in another job where I'd come home covered in dust and grime (plus glitter, lots and lots of glitter, and not even holo gilitter) and I'd have to shower and deep clean everything daily to get that off. Plus dissociate. My skin was not happy. I looked as rough as I felt.

Ok, people. You need to shower twice per day if you go out in the day time. Shower at morning before you go out and at night before you go to bed. If you're home all day, shower once per day. Women's hair can be washed weekly depending on your hair type etc. Not showering everyday is NASTY. You may think nobody can smell you but they can. If you stand next to me, I can literally smell down there. Go bathe. This is America. We have enough soap. Hygiene is important.
