Postconcussive: A postconcussive syndrome can bring about any other psychiatric syndrome including an impulse control disorder nos. Seen from this perspective, medicinally one might expect benefit from Hydroxyzine dosed as tolerated between 10 mg daily up to 25 mg PO qid. If you also have posttraumatic stress disorder symptomatology, there is always the possibility of a self-directed anger coming back at you in the form of a repetition compulsion.Either way, psychotherapy along with medication would certainly be the way to go.Low-dose antipsychotic interventions are sometimes also helpful in such conditions but i would certainly give Hydroxyzine a trial run first if you were among my patient population. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

2 yo fell on cement & hit back of head. Few min later he slipped & dad caught him but he still hit nose &forehead. Seems fine. Didn't cry. Nose stuffy?

Observe: I presume that you unstated question is what to do. As the child did not lose consciousness, seems fine, and didn't cry, no acute medical evaluation is necessary at this time. If he develops altered mental status, or vomits, then evaluation should be urgently sought. If the falling continues, then the should be evaluated by pediatrician urgently. ...Read more

Headphones and head lice?

Headphones and head lice?

Earbuds are ok: Lice prefer hair and scalp, but they run around quickly and could end up on headphone head bands (although it seems unlikely to happen). Earbuds are ok, because there is almost no place for the lice to hide. If a person is worried about using somebody else's headphones, he can keep them in a plastic bag for 2 or 3 weeks before using them. By then, the lice should have died. ...Read more

Quick care: As you've said "hit head very hard" with immediate symptoms, I'd advise a quick assessment at your local quick care center to make sure you've not seriously hurt yourself. You may have a concussion, that would need to be addressed with you on what to watch out for. ...Read more

Face began w/ heat rash & now hives on forehead & jaw. Gym 7 hrs wk. I shower right away at home.  Wear clothes that wick but head sweats. 66yo f Tx?

Hives: Hives may be exercise or heat related and the facial rash could be due to an allergic reaction to something that comes in contact with your face. If rash or hives don't appear on the rest of your body, an allergy to food,etc doesn't seem likely. If symptoms persist an allergist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. In the meantime try to identify any culprit substances that come in contact ...Read more
