I'm curious as to which toothpaste is best for reducing pain caused by cavities when taking hot or cold things?

I'm curious as to which toothpaste is best for reducing pain caused by cavities when taking hot or cold things?

None: Toothpaste doesn't fix cavities. Some toothpastes help prevent cavities from forming, others may remineralize microscopic areas of calcium loss, but if you have a cavity (infected hole) it can only be fixed by a dentist. Please put down the computer, pick up the phone, and call a dentist before your decayed teeth turn into abscessed teeth. ...Read more

What does Coldrex Junior Hot Lemon contain? It's delicious cold medicine and the best thing about it is that it doesn't make me drowsy.

What does Coldrex Junior Hot Lemon contain? It's delicious cold medicine and the best thing about it is that it doesn't make me drowsy.

Coldrex lemon: has 3 major ingredients. Tylenol (acetaminophen) 300 mg, 20 mg Vit C and phenylephrine. This last agent causes blood pressure to go up without an increase in the heart rate. It also causes constriction of blood vessels (how it works as a nasal decongestant). It can cause agitation and dilation of pupils. Too much Tylenol can damage the liver. I'm glad it tastes good. Use only as directed !!!!! ...Read more

Oily skin, prone to blackheads molescum contageous as well. When is it best to start retin-a treatment? It's getting warmer now. Hot or cold months?

Sunscreen Important: It is not so much the season that is important. Be sure and protect your skin with sunscreen as it will be more prone to burn. The retin a will unfortunately not resolve the molluscum contagiosum warts, however. Those will eventually resolve on their own. May take 18 months. ...Read more
