In general for adult, it should be less than 100 ku/l so your value of 159 ku/l is slightly elevated. Together with your symptoms, it is likely that you have allergic rhinitis and asthma.

Teething gels may provide very short term relief, but in general don't really help a lot ...Read more

Had cough and runny nose/drainage for 3.5 wks. Had to stop amox for side effects. Cough is worse now and tastes really bad! Go back to dr or wait it out?

Get rechecked: I would advise going back to get rechecked if you feel worse and had to stop the Amoxicillin early. A different antibiotic could be prescribed that may have fewer side effects. Also want to make sure you aren't developing something more serious like pneumonia which only your doctor can tell after examination and possibly a chest xray. Could also be a sinus infection. Just get rechecked! ...Read more

My 6 months old son started to have wet cough and runny nose. I tried the nasal saline but it doesn't help much. Is there anything else I can give him?

Limited options: For infants, there are few medication options to deal with the common cold. Since infants need to breathe through their nose, the nasal saline is a good idea and using it with a bulb syringe (nasal aspirator) will help evacuate the mucus. Previously used cough and cold medications had more risks than benefits. If this were allergies, consider zyrtec syrup and if he improves, see allergist. ...Read more

Beyond that, it's your judgement. ...Read more
