it is ok for me to swim at night with my sinus problem?

Maybe: Is the cause of your sinus problem allergies? If so when this is particularly troubling you could try an antihistamine prior to swimming. If your sinus problems are due to another cause you should be evaluated further at a clinic. I wish you well with your health!

A member asked:

Why do my baby's croup symptoms seem to be worse at night?

4 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Ruben Nazario
Specializes in Pediatrics
Inflammation: Croup causes inflammation around the vocal cords, resulting in narrowing of the airway, a characteristic barking cough and respiratory distress. At night, your baby’s airway becomes even narrower, as the head scrunches down against the chest. Also, the baby is not actively clearing his secretions when sleeping, which can cause choking episodes. Dry air from a heater also worsens the cough.
A 28-year-old member asked:

Will taking doxylamine at night last long enough to help with my midday nausea?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in

Try it and see!: One half tablet of doxylamine can be taken along with vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) three times daily for nausea of pregnancy. As a side effect can be sleepiness, an alternative is to take a full tablet at bedtime, and just use the B6 during the day. Try both ways and see what works for you.

Good sleep hygiene: Establish good sleep hygiene and patterns. Go to bed a the same time at night, avoid excess alcohol, food, and exercise prior to sleep, make sure your room is darkened and quiet, and don't "clock watch".
