Yes: Repeated exposure to second-hand smoke, both in cars and homes, is associated with nicotine dependence symptoms in non-smokers. Unfortunately, this often happens to children of parents who smoke around them. Years ago non-smoking nurses and doctors would become addicted to second-hand smoke when patients were permitted to smoke inside hospitals (seems strange to imagine these days). ...Read more

Low risk: Black mold is problematic for people with definitive allergies to the mold but, if you're not allergic to the mold just being in the same room with the mold without disturbing the mold should not pose a health risk. There's a lot of hysteria about "black mold" perpetuated by companies that charge exorbitant prices to eradicate it...it's not a big health risk. ...Read more

Skin allergy: Tumble drying is a good idea if you have a dust mite allergy, as is washing bedding in hot water weekly. If you have sensitive skin, i would avoid harsh heavily scented detergents, use a second rinse cycle to get detergent off clothes, and abstain from the use of dryer sheets. Use of a dehumidifier again may help with mold or dust mite growth in the home . The target for humidity is about 40-45%. ...Read more

This : This is one of 3 things, allergic conjunctivitis, bacterial conjunctivitis, or viral conjunctivitis. All three can have similar findings to what you describe in your daughter. Allergies tend to last for weeks at a time if untreated and usually feature itching and white-ish mucous. Cool compresses and artificial tears can help, but often a prescription eyedrop is needed. Bacterial conjunctivitis is more commonly seen in only one eye, but can be in both. Eyes tend to be red, with greenish discharge. Usually this will resolve within 5 days without treatment, more quickly if antibiotic drops are used. Viral conjunctivitis tends to affect both eyes, and there are usually complaints of cold symptoms or sore throat. Treatment is for symptoms only, the virus has to 'run its course'. Cool compresses and tears plus other over the counter drops may give relief. The main goal in these patients is to try not to give it to the rest of the family, since it is very contagious. An ophthalmologist can usually see differences and help you sort out the problem and the proper treatment. Find a local eye doctor to examine her! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
