Probably physical: therapy and muscle strengthening. Get an opinion from orthopedic surgeon. But most importantly, avoid any further injury.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Should I do an MRI or CT scan for my child's headache?

Dr. Scott Katz
Pediatrics 26 years experience
It depends.: If your pediatrician thinks there could be a serious explanation for the headaches, they will make that decision. An MRI is better at finding abnormalities of the brain itself, such as a tumor. A CT is better for discovering bleeding or abnormalities of bony structures.

Antihistamines: If you are pregnant and itching that badly you need to see your care provider to rule out possibly serious conditions such as cholestasis of pregnancy. If serious conditions are ruled out than you can try antihistamines such as Claritin zyrtec or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) as well as oatmeal baths like aveeno and emollient skin creams such as eucerin. Make sure your air is well humidified as well

Nitrates/tylenol: Eds pts should avoid nitrates when using eds drugs such as viagra. Children are usually given tylenol (acetaminophen) based on safety over many years. However all forms of analgesics can be use in children depending on the circumstance. All doses will need adjustment.

A 36-year-old member asked:

What's the best decongestant to use when you have a stuffy nose?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Barbara Stark Baxter
Allergy and Immunology 42 years experience
Decongestants: Oral Pseudoephedrine is the most effective pill, but oral phenylephrine is the most available, because you do not have to have a driver's license handy to identify yourself when purchasing it. Both can disturb sleep. So at night a lot of people choose topical decongestants, for example afrin, (oxymetazoline) Vicks spray, 4-way spray, etc. Those sprays can be addicting. Spray antihistamines work well if allergic.
