Can simethicone cause fetal retention in babies? 11 days old took drops for gas all bowel movements for 3 days have been stimulated rectally.

Gas Drops: Simethicone can cause the stools to become harder in some cases. Give the baby some water (2 ounces twice a day) to encourage the stools. Also, the bowel movements are changing to the baby's normal stool pattern and maybe the baby only has to actually have a BM every 2-3 days. If the stools are coming soft when they come, everything is most likely fine. ...Read more

I had 4 wisdom teeth out yesterday under GA. I was told to brush my teeth after 24 hours and I have managed to rip a stitch. No bleeding but painful?

I had 4 wisdom teeth out yesterday under GA. I was told to brush my teeth after 24 hours and I have managed to rip a stitch. No bleeding but painful?

Notify Dentist: Pain is to be expected at this point. I doubt the accidentally ripping of the suture made any difference. However, I would call the office, mention this occurrence and ask for specific instructions and when you need to be seen again, especially under the circumstances. Sutures are used for two purposes- to control bleeding and hold tissue in place until initial healing. May need to be re-sutured. ...Read more
