Is it possible to get rid of watery eyes, runny nose, and coughing mucus in a day?

Watery eyes: Sounds like you have a viral illness. Take an over-the-counter decongestant and see if this helps. A saline nasal spray is also helpful. Drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. If you are still having problems after 7 days, call your primary doctor.

I recently had epidural steroid injection and I have a burning pain in groin. Is this normal?

Yes: Within reason. The injection itself may initially irritate the tissues around the nerve and the nerve itself. Especially if you had what is called a transforaminal injection. It sounds as if your injection was given around the 3rd lumbar nerve, right ?

A 40-year-old member asked:
I had my kidney stone removed by scope and stent removed 6 days after. Is it normal to still feel pain?

Not Usually: Typically, after a stone is removed the the stent is removed, the pain goes away almost immediately. Sometimes, there is still some swelling in the ureter that could be giving continued pain or even possible a small stone fragment. I would check with your doctor with the pain persisting that long.

My 2 yr daughter has hand, foot and mouth disease for last 4 days. The ulcers / blisters in mouth make it difficult for her to drink and eat.. What medication will be most suitable?

Numb the mouth: Anything that will decrease the pain in the mouth will help her drink. Ice cold foods act as a local anesthesia as they numb the area. Try popsicles, ice cream, jello, as well as pedialyte popsicles that will keep her hydrated. Also oragel will help. As it is a viral disease, there is no antibiotics that will help it. It will go away on its own.
