DermTV How to Treat Hives DermTV Epi 285
Music Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Hives, I'm happy to tell you, aren't dangerous, but they sure are annoying because they are so very, very itchy. The medical term for hives is urticaria, but a lot of people just call them wheals or welts. The bottom line is they are very itchy bumps. They can vary in size from a small pea to as large as your palm, the color is usually skin colored, or sometimes they're a little bit pink, and slightly raisedalmost like a plaque. They.
Can vary in shape from round, to oval, or even linear, but the most characteristic part of hives is the amount of time that they last, because they come and go frequently. They can last for as short as twenty minutes, or an hour or less, maybe even two hours. When one goes away another one comes. And, usually there are many cycling at the same time. But if your bumps last for a couple of days, than they're not hives. Hives usually represent allergic reactions to either foods or medications, and the most.
Common foods that cause them are tomatoes, nuts, shellfish, and the most common medications that cause it are antibiotics, especially penicillin but there are literally thousands of medications that can cause hives. In terms of treatment, the most important thing is if you've recently started a new medication in the last week, or ten days, then discontinue it and of course, inform your physician. For treatment, we use antihistamines. Over thecounter antihistamines, like Benadryl or ChlorTrimeton or even Claritin, are helpful. The first group can be sedating. Claritin is not sedating. And Allegra which is available by prescription, also is not.
What Happens if Thyroid Level is High During Pregnancy
What happens if thyroid level is high during pregnancy The clinical term for the thyroids over producing hormones is hyperthyroidism. It can make you nervous, tired and with poor concentration. Kind of like pregnancy. You could end up with excessive sweating and diarrhea. That could leave someone dehydrated, on par with morning sickness. You could develop heart palpitations or an irregular heartbeat. That's life threatening. Aside from a blood test, what are signs of a high thyroid Weight loss, an irregular heartbeat, moist skin and an enlarged thyroid to start. You'd.
Also have hyperactive reflexes. I thought I already did, trying to keep up with a hyper toddler. Hair loss sometimes occurs. And don't joke about already wanting to pull your hair out, because thyroid problems can put your health at risk. What does the high thyroid level do when you're pregnant Some women naturally have a highly active thyroid in the first trimester, especially pregnant with multiples, but the 10 of affected women usually go back to normal. Aside from dealing with twins or more. If you have chronic and uncontrolled hyperthyroidism, you are more likely to have a miscarriage,.
Stillbirth and preterm baby. What type of complications can it cause, other than the kid coming out too soon You're at risk of preeclampsia, which is life threatening. And it can cause preterm labor on its own. If you don't have enough thyroid hormone, I know they can give you artificial ones, like a diabetic taking insulin. What do they do for someone with too much thyroid production PTU and MMI are used. While it affects the baby a little, lack of treatment is not an alternative. At least it's all over when I have the baby.
Should New Moms Take AntiDepressants
Antidepressants during pregnancy do not appear to influence baby growth in the first year. I'm Erin White and this is a dailyRx Minute. Deciding whether to take medication while pregnant can be a tough decision. It becomes tougher when the risks and benefits are not always clear, such as with mental health medications. However, no differences in size or growth were found among children born to women with and without depression, regardless of whether they were taking antidepressants. Ask your doctor whether your medication is safe to take while pregnant. For dailyRx TV, I'm Erin White.
Why Your Boobs Hurt Before Your Period
Ow. Am I right, ladies Hello everyone! Welcome to another episode of DNews. Amy here with you guys and gals today, and you gals specifically might have experienced sore breasts in the days leading up to your period. Premenstrual breast tenderness, properly called cyclical mastalgia, or cyclical mastodynia, is extremely common with severity varying between women. Some might feel a dull ache while others may experience stabbing or shooting pains. It all comes down to fluctuating hormones. Estrogen levels begin to rise in the first half of a menstrual cycle, causing the breast ducts to enlarge. Once an egg is released.
From the ovary, the body produces progesterone to help thicken the uterine lining in anticipation of that egg being fertilized and implanted pregnancy. Progesterone also causes the milk glands in the breasts to swell. It's the rising level of those two hormones that lead to breast soreness. But sore breasts could also be an indicator of fibrocystic breast disease, a condition that leads to large, noncancerous lumps appearing in the breast tissue before menstruation. They move when pushed but typically disappear once menstruation begins. The exact timing of the hormone levels changing varies for each woman as do specific symptoms,.
Though in most cases symptoms typically peak just before menstruation. And it's more than just tenderness and soreness. Breast tissue at this point in a woman's cycle may become denser and have a bumpy, cobblestonelike feeling, especially in the outer areas of the breast. There may be a general lingering dull pain and an overall sense of fullness leaving the breasts feeling heavy. Premenstrual breast soreness could be worse if you've just started taking hormonal birth control, like the pill. Breast soreness and enlargement is itself a side effect of the.
Pill along with weight gain. And of course, sore breasts is just one of a wide array of premenstrual symptoms women are all too familiar with. Emotional symptoms like mood changes, physical symptoms like abdominal or even full body bloating, and cognitive symptoms like exhaustion. Premenstrual breast soreness affects roughly 70 of women during their lifetime with up to about a third of women experiencing moderate to severe pain. And it's most common for women between the ages of 30 and 50. And unfortunately, there's not much to do about it besides wait. But luckily, breast.
Amoxicillin For Strep Throat, Pneumonia, Skin Infections, And Urinary Tract Infections
Amoxicillin amox, also spelled amoxycillin, is an antibiotic useful for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections. It is the first line treatment for middle ear infections. It may also be used for strep throat, pneumonia, skin infections, and urinary tract infections among others. It is taken by mouth. Common side effects include a nausea and rash. It may also increase the risk of yeast infections and, when used in combination with clavulanic acid, diarrhea. It should not be used in those who are allergic to penicillin. While usable in those with kidney problems the dose may.
Need to be decreased. Its use in pregnancy and breastfeeding appear to be okay. Amoxicillin first became available in 1972. It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic health system. It is one of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics in children. Amoxicillin is available as a generic medication. It has a wholesale costs between 0.02 and 0.05 USD per pill. In the United States ten days of treatment costs about 16 USD. Amoxicillin is used in the treatment of a number of infections, including acute otitis.
Media, streptococcal pharyngitis, pneumonia, skin infections, urinary tract infections, Salmonella infections, Lyme disease, and chlamydia infections. It is also used to prevent bacterial endocarditis in highrisk people having dental work done, to prevent Streptococcus pneumoniae and other encapsulated bacterial infections in those without spleens, such as people with sicklecell disease, and for both the prevention and the treatment of anthrax. The United Kingdom recommends against its use for infectious endocarditis prophylaxis. These recommendations do not appear to have changed the rates of infection for infectious endocarditis. Amoxicillin and amoxicillinclavulanate have been recommended by guidelines as the drug.
Of choice for bacterial sinusitis, but most sinusitis is caused by viruses, for which amoxicillin and amoxicillinclavulanate are ineffective, and the small benefit gained by Amoxicillin may be overridden by the adverse effects. Amoxicillin is occasionally used for the treatment of skin infections, such as acne vulgaris. It is often an effective treatment for cases of acne vulgaris that have responded poorly to other antibiotics, such as doxycycline and minocycline. Side effects are similar to those for other lactam antibiotics, including nausea, vomiting, rashes, and antibioticassociated colitis. Loose bowel movements diarrhea may also.
Occur. Rarer side effects include mental changes, lightheadedness, insomnia, confusion, anxiety, sensitivity to lights and sounds, and unclear thinking. Immediate medical care is required upon the first signs of these side effects. The onset of an allergic reaction to amoxicillin can be very sudden and intense emergency medical attention must be sought as quickly as possible. The initial phase of such a reaction often starts with a change in mental state, skin rash with intense itching often beginning in fingertips and around groin area and rapidly spreading, and sensations of fever, nausea,.
Why Does My Baby Have a Rash on Her Face
Why does my baby have a rash on her face It's as if she has acne, but I'm afraid it is something dangerous. Babies can have acne. It is a mild infection as their bodies are exposed to various pathogens and start to fight it. What if they are worse than mild pimples If your baby is having trouble breathing or digestive problems after eating a new food, it may be food allergies. What if she's been sick If there is a fever with the rash, it could be anything from the chicken pox to Fifth's.
Disease. What is Fifth's disease It was one of the five common childhood diseases. It was considered the fifth one, because kids usually got it around age five, though they could get it when they were in preschool. But I'm dealing with a baby. The odds of it being Fifth's disease go up if he or she could have gotten it from an older sibling. But if there is a high fever and sore throat, it could be something serious like scarlet fever. I'm pretty sure she's vaccinated against that. Your baby is in the process of getting vaccinated against major diseases. She might not have.
Gotten the vaccine yet or doesn't have full immunity yet. She doesn't have a high fever. Could it be something more benign Do you have bed bugs Do you have pets, and the baby could have been exposed to fleas When we tell the kids good night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite, I never meant literally. At least I know it isn't poison ivy like my preschooler had. If the older sibling has been in physical contact with the baby, or the baby laying down on clothes and blankets the older one was in, yes, the baby could have a reaction.
