My wife just got a cat. And now, I have itchy eyes and nose. Is this allergy or common cold?

Probably: This is a common allergy - if there is a definite correlation then try antihistamine drops. Also keep your hands washed and away from your face.

Likely Yes: Itchy throat and mouth are very common symptoms when you are allergic to something. Most commonly- a food item such as fresh fruits or vegetables. Is it occurring all the time? Or just when you eat certain things? Also, do you have seasonal allergies? Seasonal allergies sometimes present that way as well- along with nasal congestion etc.

I've tried hydrocortisone ointment for my ears, but my ears still itches. What can I do?

Vinegar/peroxide: Mix white vinegar and peroxide equal parts and use a bit to clean the ears. The white vinegar is a natural antibiotic and anti fungal. Avoid q-tips! if the symptoms persist, see your ENT for evaluation. You could have a chronic infection which is easy to treat, but may require prescription medications. Best wishes.

A 51-year-old female asked:

Is cortizone (hydrocortisone) guaranteed to work for heel spur?

3 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Kathleen Cullen
Internal Medicine 9 years experience
Not necessarily: A heel spur is a calcium deposit located in the heel that usually presses on the soft tissue and tendons in the heel causing pain. Although a cortisone shot can help reduce inflammation and reduce pain, it does not remove the spur. Sometimes surgical intervention is warrented.
