Topical cortisone works far better and you will need to wash every item which had had potential contact with the ivy with laundry detergent else the resin will cause new lesions again and again. ...Read more

Bad tooth pain.shes tried 1000mg of ibuprofen wants to take cyclobenzaprine5mg and amoxicillin is this safe?

Bad tooth pain.shes tried 1000mg of ibuprofen wants to take cyclobenzaprine5mg and amoxicillin is this safe?

Whoa: Sounds like "she's" self medicating. 1,000mg of ibuprofen (Advil) is no more effective than 200 mg for pain caused by infected (abscessed) tooth. Cyclobezaprine is for muscle spasm, not for infection/pain. Penicillin has to be taken 4x/day for 5 full days to slow spread of infection. What she needs is a Dentist to treat the infection (root canal or extraction). Get professional help fast. ...Read more
