If i've conjunctivitis allergy, can it heal by allergy injection therapy ?Tried allergy meds : allegysal, patanol (olopatadine) and avil, Claritin loratadine, please help
Yes: Treatment of allergic conjunctivitis starts with eliminating or avoiding the allergen as well as rinsing the allergen from your eyes with plain water (reduces the allergen load). Allergy shots can help as can oral allergy meds. There are eye drops that help a great deal also. Steroid eye drops are very effective but are not used long term due to risk of glaucoma and cataract. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I want to ask u can dostinex (cabergoline) treat pcos.i m taking dostinex (cabergoline) coz of high prolactin level.
Very unlikely: Hi. Your gender is not stated. I've been prescribing cabergoline (Dostinex) for a long time for hyperprolactinemia, and acne's not one of the side effects I see. If you're a man, you might also be being treated with testosterone for the hypogonadism caused by high prolactin, in which case it would be the testosterone causing the acne, not the Dostinex (if you're a woman, disregard that statement). ...Read more

Period in time (brown drops, red blood but less than usual) i ate fenugreek then tested prolactin 33.7 thyroid normal, repeat test? Or start dostinex (cabergoline)
Don't start: Prolactin level isn't very elevated. Patients with pcos or other causes of hyperandrogenism can also have mild elevations in prl. Mild elevations can be seen in patients with pituitary stalk compression as well, though would've expected to see abn thyroid function. In any case don't treat a number. Complete a work up which eventually might mean pituitary MRI if prolactinoma is still considered. ...Read more

Can montelukast become an alternative of allergens immunotherapy for perenial allergic rhinitis ?
Not really: I suggest 3 steps to controlling allergies : 1) avoid the things you are allergic to. 2) take medications to control the symptoms. 3) get 'allergy shots' (immunotherapy) to teach your body to not be "allergic" to those things (immune tolerance). Using a leukotriene antagonist control the symptoms some, but it is not the most effective medication, and is not an equal alternative to immunotherapy. ...Read more
