My son, age 15 is not feeling well. Coughing and said his form is yellow. Gave him corenza, acc 200 and linctagon. Any other advice?
Viral viral :
Most chest infections are viral, meaning antibiotics are useless to help them clear. They can also cause inflammation which takes very long to heal. If he is not taking more than 30 breaths per minute, he is unlikely to have pneumonia, which means he does not need hospital.
The most important advice I can give is rest, fluids, healthy diet. Viral infections rely on immune system to clear. ...Read more

If a gal is 17year-old n she gets pregnt, at around her 2months, will she grow tal?Acc to docs, girls grow til 18year so can she?(as per above conditions
Hard to say: Most girls grow only 5 cm or 2.5 in after their first cycle and finish their linear growth at 16-17. The hormones that support menses also tell the growth centers to close over time, so the amount of possible linear growth is related to all such factors.If the growth centers remain open(xrays can tell) one can grow taller, but i would not expect it in this circumstance. ...Read more
Hi. I'm in the 'system' for help with head injury but seem to be going from one person to the next and just getting discombobulated with the process. ACC have not accepted claim but I'm still having head injury problems. ?
Check with GP: Need to check with case manager. If the claim is not accepted for income may still be some acceptance for treatment. If there is should be eligible for the concussion service. If not then your GP will then be able to refer you to public services such as neurology and OT as needed. All the best. Agree it can be a difficult process from my own professional experience ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Took fluconazole (2 150 mg -tblts) right after conception and then sulfameth for 14 days. My baby has a complete acc. Can there be a connection?
Research Says No: Both drugs are category c which means that they should be used with caution during pregnancy. Fluconazole in high doses (400mg/day for 4-5 weeks) can cause miscarriage in the first trimester but in low doses (ie for vaginal yeast) has no effect. Sulfa has no effect on the fetus early in pregnancy but is associated jaundice (yellowing of the skin) and anemia if used in the third trimester. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
