I love drinking warm milk w/ honey before I sleep. I do a detailed cleaning right after but even w/ brushing, can it cause cavity? I now use a straw

I love drinking warm milk w/ honey before I sleep. I do a detailed cleaning right after but even w/ brushing, can it cause cavity? I now use a straw

Hmmm: The chance of causing cavities is directly proportional to the amount of time the sugar (& milk) is in contact with your teeth. Therefore, sipping it over a long period of time is bad. Drinking it (with\without a straw) over a short period of time followed by rinsing (brushing & flossing) minimizes the chance of cavities. My recommendation- have your own dentist evaluate the health of your teeth. ...Read more

M 18 yrs old I have dry cough since 3 weeks I use lots of tablets like allegra (fexofenadine), honeytus, warm water, honey but there is no result m worried please hlp?

Possibility...: One common and easily treated possibility for your cough is bronchospasm. It is treated with bronchodilator and perhaps steroid inhalers. Your doctor will be able to diagnose this sometimes by simply listening to your chest with stethoscope, sometimes some testing is needed, like pulmonary function tests. If you smoke, you need to quit today. See your doctor but no need to worry! Good luck! ...Read more
