How can I prevent ear infections in my child?

Dr. Michael Coogan
Pediatrics 48 years experience
Airway inflammation: Since ear infections begin with inflammation in the upper airway (nose and throat), parents should avoid situations that may lead to inflammation. These include, but are not limited to: cold viruses, irritants like cigarette smoke, and aeroallergens such as pollen, in certain susceptible children.

No: The answer is not a clear cut yes/no. The fda has assigned a category c rating which means there were some negative effects when given to animals at extremely high doses but no clear answer in humans. You should talk to your ob, eye doctor and pediatrician.

Is isoniazid-rifampin safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding?

Dr. R. Wayne Inzer

No: Both drugs are category c, which means there are no direct human harm shown, but animal studies show adverse effects on the fetus. The benefits may outweigh the risks, under certain circumstances, this should be discussed with your doctor. Rifampin is considered safe with breast feeding while Isoniazid is not and may decrease flow and quality of milk.

I enjoy sleeping with a body pillow, will that worsen my neck pain during pregnancy?

Dr. Patrick Weix
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No: I often recommend that pregnant patients sleep with a body pillow as it can help relieve low back pain in pregnancy. Consider a buckwheat stuffed head pillow or foam head pillow if you find you are not getting proper neck support.
A 30-year-old member asked:

Lately i've had skin rashes and itchiness. Should I use calamine lotion or aloe?

Either: Either may help with symptoms. Hydrocortisone cream which is available over-the-counter may both relieve the symptoms and help get rid of the rash. Antihistamines like claritin, zyrtec and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will also help for both.
