67 yr-old with years of monthly blackouts, with a history of PVC's, adrenal insufficiency and hypothyroidism, looking for a definitive diagnosis.....?

Multifactorial: There a several potential causes for the syncope in this lady. Of concern is that the episode on August 4th occurred without warning. This could be arrhythmic in origin. Although a Holter has been done the patient may need an Event Monitor and if this is negative an implantable monitor may be needed.

We need to make sure she has normal LV function by Echo etc as she does have a history of PVC's.

Vasodepressor syndrome needs to be also considered as she does have some features compatible with this. TTT would be reasonable.

Finally hypotension secondary to the endocrine problem needs to be considered. Perhaps she might need a vasoactive medication as she does have hypotension. ...Read more

Can i put hydrocortisone or any cream in my burning and itching vigina? I have oral fruit allergy syndrome. I didn't know latex comes from trees.

Probably: If the cream does not irritate you, it can be used. However there are also special formulation rx product for this purpose. Yes latex comes from rubber trees and patients allergic to latex may react to fruits such as avocado, kiwi, banana etc. However this has nothing to do with your vaginal itching. See an allergist if this remains a problem if you are not allergic to latex. ...Read more

How long does a allergic reaction from a shingle vaccine last, and ca I take allergy meds and use hydrocortisone?

How long does a allergic reaction from a shingle vaccine last, and ca I take allergy meds and use hydrocortisone?

Don't know: Since the Zoster vaccine has been around for about a decade, the long-term efficacy can only be ascertained by experience. Theoretically it should last a life-time but practically only time will time. Since it is a live vaccine, you need to inform your doctor about this if you are on high-dose oral steroid (not topical or inhaled steroid) before getting the vaccine. Allergy medication is fine. ...Read more

For the past few days my left wrist has been very itchy. I have a bad nickel allergy so no jewelry. I tried lotion, Olux, and Cortizone (hydrocortisone) and no relief.

What is your exposur: This brings up the question of what you may be exposed to now that you are not aware of. The nickel allergy reaction is contact dermatitis and this suggests you may have another sensitizer. You might do an inventory - watch, new detergent, etc. This is not generalized but localized to something near the left wrist. Is the wrist itchy on the top or bottom? Maybe your dog has somet ...Read more

What is the duration of injected solu-cortef (hydrocortisone)?

What is the duration of injected solu-cortef (hydrocortisone)?

About 8-12 hours: 8-12 hours is what is referred to as the 'half-life' of this medication. That means that 1/2 of the drug has been metabolized (removed) in this time period. Although half of the dose is still present after this time period, it is understandably much less effective for every hour beyond this. The maximal (usual) effect of this drug, then, is good for the first 8-12 hours. ...Read more
