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!

I wash my hair once a week and it still looks good after 14 days but I don't recommend washing it every 2 weeks 🙃

4:16 I used to go on bicycle rides regularly, and every ~10 miles along the route, there's a rest stop with food, drinks, and restrooms. On some rides, the rest stops had little bottles of pickle juice. I normally dislike pickles, but after a couple hours of exercise and sweating, suddenly I like the taste better since my body needs the salt.

Urgh, I tried to tell my foster mother it wasn't good for me to wash every day and that washing my body and hair everyday would strip away the natural oils. When my mother was younger she washed her hair once a week, I told her. She insisted I was wrong and she told me her kids called me "Sweaty Betty" behind my back. If they did, it would only have been due to her influencing them. Nobody at school made comments about me being smelly, and they would have if there had been a problem!

I've had a bad habit for a really, really long time. I sit in a posture with my legs on the chair, never touching the floor (kind of like an S-bend?). I've almost always did that, mostly because I don't find it comfortable to sit normally as my legs are so short I can barely hit the ground with my toes if I sit straight. I do have a footpall to minimize this issue, but I dont use it enough due to the habit I got. What things do I screw up with this posture?

My mom hates when I don't shower she thinks Im stinky if I don't which is not and now my hair is falling out and very very dry, I have different hair type that them they're curly while I'm semi wavy. I keep telling her that it's bad I shower every single day but I don't put shampoo sometimes on my hair just wet it and continue taking a bath because if I at least don't wash my hair she thinks I didn't clean myself😬
