Stop It!: Chronic use of visine makes your eyes more red, not less. You will need to seek the advise of an ophthalmologist who can safely get you off of this drug.

Cool mist: The best thing for a child suffered from a croupy cough is to calm him down, and place him in front of cool mist. Croup is caused by a virus the induces inflammation and swelling of the upper airway. Cool mist calms the cough. Believe it or not, taking your child out into the cool night air and sitting quietly will often relieve the discomfort.

Can I relieve my allergies without having to take more pills?
2 doctor answers • 8 doctors weighed in
Yes w/Allergy shots: The approach to treat allergies is three-fold: avoid the offending allergen if possible (easiest for indoor allergens like pet dander); medications (like antihistamines & nasal sprays); and immunotherapy (shots) that decrease your body's sensitivity to airborne allergy provokers. When the first 2 approaches don't work or medicines cause side effects, shots are the best way to improve allergies.

Let explain?: Transient receptor potential (trp) channels play central roles in nociception under physiological and pathological conditions including inflammation and neuropathy. In this chapter, we will highlight the enormous progress in understanding the role of trp channels in nociception. We will mainly focus on two trp channels (trpv1 and trpa1) that have been particularly implicated in transducing signals.
