Is it true that there is a HIV medication you take for five years and virally suppresses HIV forever?
No, HIV medication needs to be taken FOR LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT STOP taking your meds!!!! Whilst you may achieve viral suppression, that does NOT mean you are cured. There is no such thing as "viral suppression forever" without medication.
There are trials going on for HIV vaccines, and hopefully one day there will be a cure, but for now the best we can do is suppress the virus. ...Read more

My five month old only will eat when he drowsy or sleep he has been on reflux medication for awhile and he doesn't have big appetite what could it be?
Normal feeding?: You mention reflux medication and i see on the profile "hydrochlorothiazide." i assume that's your medication and not your baby's. If he is breastfeeding or formula feeding well and is gaining weight, then there is no concern. I was not clear from your question if you meant he was not having a big appetite for solids or for his milk? ...Read more

My five years old started with a cold sore for the first time. Is there any medication or treatment for this condition?
Oral herpes?: First confirm the diagnosis. Not all apparent cold sores are due to herpes. A sore inside the mouth more likely is a canker sore, not a cold sore. Effective treatment is available for oral herpes, but not before confirming the diagnosis and it needs a prescription. Take your daughter to the pediatrician right away -- the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis and for effective treatment. ...Read more

I started Yasmin birth control today after being off for five months. I am reading stats on the chance of blood clots and have myself worried, I'm young workout and had been on this medication for almost five years before stopping. Is Yasmin safe ?
Alternatives: The concern is over the drospirenone (synthetic progesterone) component of the pill. Some studies suggest that Yasmin and Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) may have a higher risk of venous blood clots than older birth control pills. However, there are risks associated with any pill, and the benefits generally outweigh the risks. The decision of which pill to use should be made between you and your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've had a yeast infection for five months now. I've been to the doctor several times. I've been on several medications fromover the counter to prescription. I've tried several homeopathic remedies and i still can't seem to get rid of the yeast infection.
Vaginitis: Presuming you are referring to a vaginal yeast infection there are several things you might try. Make sure you are treated with an agent effective against yeast (like fluconazole) through one menstrual period. Also have your sexual partner (assuming it is a man) use anti-fungal cream on his penis for about a week twice or three times a day. He may be giving it back to you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
