This is serious: the incidence of death from drug overdose has been rising and now is higher than the fatality rate from ALL auto accidents. You need to contact your local health department and see what programs they have for you. In my state there is a website (Delaware) to help people who have had a drug overdose.

Start with standard otc treatment: salacylic acid wash, benzoyl peroxide and a good moisturizer and if this is not effective make a visit with your primary physician to discuss prescription therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Atherosclerosis question. If you stop eating fats for one year, would that clear away your plaques?
Maybe not: There's two points here: 1) eliminating all fats is not healthy, in fact it may be detrimental - you need some fats to survive & function. The trick is choosing the right fats. 2) even if eliminating "bad" fats, you may not get crystal clear arteries but the plaques will shrink and you'll slow the creation of new ones. ...Read more
Unlikely: Decongestants usually do not clear eustachian tube obstruction with mucus. It would not be harmful to try sudafed, but if say 5 days of treatment does not help, i would not continue. Trying decongestant nasal drops and lying down with your head turned to the side may allow the drops to get into the tube and might give some relief. In general, these are viral infections and immunity will cure. ...Read more

I am getting pimples on my face and it doesn't clear away.I have recently started vitabiotics skin hair & nails multivitamin.Breakout looks more now.?
Vitabiotics: I don't think the vitabiotics multivitamins are affecting the face - i'd place my money on it being a coincidence (although you could always just stop the vitabiotics and see). If the otc facial washes aren't helping for the acne, then i suggest talking with your doctor about prescription creams and possibly oral antibiotics. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You don't say where the infection occurred, but am assuming genitally, in which case you might want to be tested for other stds. Hope you are well soon. ...Read more

Resistance &Exposure: Like any other viral (or bacterial ) infection the host has to be susceptible to the infection and the exposure must occur in a place that harbors the infections (mucous membranes for example) Some people develop antibodies to certain infectious agents and therefore when exposed never contract it.
