Can Babies Be Allergic To Vitamin D Drops
Not true: First off penicillin is not available in any drop form for prescription use. There are many reasons for this but there are so many more effective alternatives that it is not made as a drop. If you are allergic to penicillin, then if you administered it into your eyes you would get an allergic reaction. ...Read more
Allergy=a label; to: be blunt: a guess made by whomever, no matter training/degree. Allergy refers to a person's behavior, "presumed" in response to a "presumed" trigger. It this real solid science, or guess-work&marketing? Rarely the former; routinely the latter. Can humans alter behavior to any stimulus? Absolutely! What behaviors can they alter? All the behaviors humans are capable of. Is this reality? Absolutely. ...Read more

3 month check: Response to treat varies depending on reason for deficiency or if Rickets (softening bones from low Vit D) is present.

No.: Neither Aspirin or vitamin c or combination of both will prevent pregnancy. To prevent pregnancy, most commonly, you have to prevent fertilization either by physically blocking the sperm from reaching the egg (this is condoms, diaphragms, cervical caps work). Or, by preventing ovulation (this is how traditional hormonal birth control works). Aspirin and vit c will not prevent pregnancy! ...Read more
No and Yes: Sea water is essentially, truly just salt and water. Other things like magnesium, etc are there too. But true sea water is salt water. However, just about anything can be found in sea water, so if someone is having a problem with a reaction to it, then its likely to be some contaminant in that local source. Something dumped or leached into the system is the likely culprit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can chloramphenicol 0.5% eyedrops be able to used as ear drops when the eardrops is supposed to be 5%? If so, would be be 10 drops tds each ear?
Not quite so simple: unlike an oral dose of medication, putting more ear drops in probably won't change the dosage. On the other hand, it won't hurt, either, so no reason not to try the lower dose. ...Read more
Yes: Vitamin k helps us clot out blood and dietary vitamin k requires the help of gut bacteria to become active and helpful. It is routinely given to newborns as a preventative measure, it helps prevent brain and other hemorrhages that may occur in a limited number of newborns. By several weeks of age, untreated babies have acquired enough gut bacteria to utilize their dietary k for this need. ...Read more
I want baby to have vit. k shot not breastfeeding due to medication would like syntocinon for delivery of placenta would you add anything else?
Birth list??: I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but from the info you gave I assume you are making a list for your birth experience. I would add eye ointment for baby to prevent infection (you can ask for it to be delayed up to 1 hour after birth), would add Hep B vaccine for baby. I'd reassess not breastfeeding - there are actually VERY FEW medications that you cannot take while breastfeeding... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How come I have a severe allergic reaction such as anaphylaxis to vitamin pills but not to vitamins through IV fluids?
Aint' easy sometimes: Be skeptical of reactions to vitamins. It's really rare. Get a wise allergist who you trust to really go through your story. Look at it with open eyes. Sometimes causes are not always easily identified (idiopathic). There are a few tests that are helpful, though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How often can I give Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to a 7 MS old baby to prevent allergies/dry runny nose? And dosage? It's it ok to apply earache drops?
Probably: "Eye supplements" often contain a large number of vitamins/micronutrients which may overlap with ingredients in a prenatal vitamin to result in higher-than-recommended doses of certain ingredients. Excess vitamin C is removed by the kidneys, but not all excesses can be removed by the body so easily. It would be better to take a daily prenatal vitamin and no further supplements while pregnant. ...Read more
