Child strep and bad mucous cough. Antibiotics for 3 days still has fever. Doc prescribed claritin nasal spray and inhaler for rhonchi, why claritin?

Good question: I am not aware of a nasal spray containing Claritin. Even then it would not have done that much for nasal congestion or the cough That the fever is still present after 3 days of antibiotic points more to a viral infection which often causes coughing and wheezing in children especially before age 3. ...Read more

Low IgG: With the picture depicted, you need to be evaluated by allergy / immubology service at a tertiary care hospital, (a university hospital or a teaching hospital), you most probably have an immunodeficiency problem for whatever reason, you might need admission and IV antibiotics to clear the infection and manage the condition from there, goodluck ...Read more

Can i take 10mg of loratadine and use fluticasone nasal spray? I need immediate relief from these horrible allergies! got a long day outside on tap!

Yes: Loratidine and fluticasone nasal spray are effective when used together. If this is not effective, adding an intranasal antihistamine (rx), such as azelastine (astelin) or olpatadine (patanase) is an option. Dymista is a combination of fluticasone and azelastine and works quickly. None of these products should adversely affect asthma or your current medications. ...Read more
