Allwrgy: Need first to rule out allergy . It is the only think that could keep reoccurring that sound like like glue or cold. It could be a dust or cleaning chemical where you work out. Hydrate yourself well take Claritin during the day and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night and drink hot green tea with lemon and honey every evening . Meanwhile check with your doctor to check thyroid and blood count and your immune system.

A member asked:

If my newborn just had his first MMR shot and hes running a fever, should I call the doctor?

Probably: Remember, MMR can not be given until at least one year. If your infant develops a fever (over 101 degrees) after any vaccine, and you are concerned, contact your doctor for advice. For the MMR vaccine, some children will get a mild fever and/or rash, but generally not until 10 days after receiving the vaccine.

Depends: Some lung infections can run a 5-7 day course and resolve on their own (these are usually viral); more severe infections may require a course of antibiotics. Bronchitis is usually treated for 5-7 days and pneumonia is usually treated for 5-10 days.

Yes.: It is estimated that10-15% of all breast cancer cases in the US are hereditary. A simple blood test exists to see if someone has a genetic mutation responsible for many of these hereditary breast cancers. If someone has this mutation, they have as high as a 65% chance of getting breast ca in their lifetime. Their children have a 50:50 chance of inheriting this mutation.

Blood flow: Itchy legs can be caused by histamine release due to increased arterial pressure from your muscles squeezing the blood vessels. It can also be caused by varicose veins and increase perspiration. The common link is altered blood flow. You may consider getting an ultrasound of you lower legs.
