Pressure can be applied by taping over the scars with a silicone gel pad that can be purchased online or at a surgical supply store. Gloves and garments that are made specifically for burn scars are very helpful. Lastly, injection of scars with corticosteroids will significantly flatten them. ...Read more

Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
