If someone is on medication for shingles how much of a risk are they in catching herpes?

My eyes keep burning and they often get teary. Should i just keep washing them with cold, clean water or should i opt for medication?
Thank you!

Sounds like Dry eyes: Dry eyes are an often the culprit of many symptoms in the eye which can include burning, stinging, tearing, foreign body sensation, tiredness, heaviness, blurred vision and eye pain. You can have some or all of the symptoms or even none of the symptoms and have dry eye. I would suggest starting with using over-the-counter artificial tears and a warm compress on the eye to see if that helps! ...Read more

Recent heart cath "totally clean". Have had bad cholesteral values for 25 years. Allergic reactions to all cholesteral meds. With a clean cath and an ef of 70% from and echo, should I even worry about a medication to lower cholesteral?

A : A presumably normal angiogram significantly lowers your risk particularly if you are not having cardiac symptoms. However, some risk remains because the angiogram takes a picture of the inside of the artery. The angiogram does not "see" the wall of the artery where arteriosclerosis takes place but can only identify whether that buidup in the wall is causing obstruction in the arterial tube. In other words, you could be building some plaque in the wall the angiogram does not see. You can see into the wall with certain tests such as special ct calcium scoring but that involves some radiation and only sees hard calcified plaque, not soft plaque. Family history is very important in these situations as well as your age. If your family history is benign and you are old enough to have developed plaque in presence of risk factors, this is a very good sign. You should look at your total cardiac risk including a detailed lipid profile and weigh that risk against the medications. If in doubt, consult the web and consult with a member of the national lipid association for an expert opinion on lipid management. ...Read more

There is any vitamins/something that I can take to clean faster the medication of the depo shot from my system?Cause I wanna get pregnant in 2months.

Ans: You should not have taken the shot if you desired aboregnancy. You may still get pregnant on the shot but not recommended. What is the hurry? Better think this idea out a little more.

I : I am so sorry to hear about your wife's difficult situation. My advice is to seek the care of a pain management specialist. This is a doctor that is trained to treat pain using the least amount yet most effective pain medications and/or procedures. Often times doctors are in a rush and don't have adequate time to deal with the complexities of pain management therefore she will be much better under the care of a pain management specialist.
I hope your wife finds help soon. ...Read more

Some : Some women definitely have more problems with others with menopause. You are correct, a healthy lifestyle can help with menopause symptoms. Eating a healthy diet, exercising, not smoking, and limiting alcohol intake to no more than 2 glasses a day is beneficial. Ideally, a patient should exercise 30 minutes a day. Just walking is a perfect exercise. Weight-lifting can be beneficial to avoid loss of muscle mass.

If a patient is hypothyroid, the best treatment is taking thyroid as you are. There are no other proven effective methods for the control of hypothyroidism. ...Read more

How can I boost my 8 month old immune system before the winter comes is there a medication or certain foods ican give he catches throat&ear infec alot?

Immune boosting: No. There is no magical formula to improve immune function. Young children are more susceptible to infection because they have not been exposed to many of the common pathogens present in the community and it takes time for them to build up the prerequisite antibodies to reduce the frequency of future attacks. There are some babies with immune deficiency but this must be detected by pediatriiacian. ...Read more
