A 18-year-old male asked:

if your doctor refutes your reaction to a medication is it not encumbent on you to prove it? taking med. before eeg. guarantees a seizure.

Work with not agains: Do not try to be defiant. The doctor is just trying to thoroughly understand what is going on. The best approach would be to work with the eeg tech who needs to be prepared for a seizure. Tell him that you would like to demonstrate one of your seizures using the medication. You and he could work out the best setting for catching the seizure on eeg. The doctor needs to know as well.

Will my son's strange reaction following antibiotics last.

4 doctor answers11 doctors weighed in
Dr. Irwin Berkowitz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: Allergic reactions to antibiotics, ie hives can last up to two weeks after stopping the medication. Antibiotic induced diarrhea can improve soon after discontinuing the antibiotics or linger. There are other nonspecific rashes that are not an allergy but an interaction between the antibiotic and a virus that can last for days. Behavioral reactions to colorings or flavors abate qickly.

What can I do to avoid febrile convulsions ?

Dr. Ruben Nazario
Specializes in Pediatrics
Not much: Febrile seizures are convulsions that happen in babies between the ages of 6 months to 6 years of age. A sudden rise in the body's temperature triggers these seizures. They are usually brief and cause no long term problems. There is a very small risk of recurrence, and even though we recommend treating fevers when they happen, this usually does not prevent the seizures from recurring.

Talk to your doc: Seizure disorders are serious medical problems; never discontinue a medication without first consulting your doctor. Some seizure medications carry risks during pregnancy, so it is important to discuss pregnancy and your medications before becoming pregnant.

Allergy symptom vary: Allergic reactions can vary from minimally annoying to fatal. If your housemate has more than mild nasal, eye, or skin symptoms i would suggest seeing a board certified allergist to define and appropriately treat the allergies.

Duration?: Local pain, itching, and redness of the skin are typical after a mosquito bite. There is usually an immediate wheal and flare response that peaks at about 20 minutes, or a hard, itchy, bump that peaks at two to three days and resolves over the ensuing days to weeks.

Agree. And don't scratch it. It will take longer to resolve.
