Is there a solution I can use for itchy arms?

Possibly

Itching
If the itching is an allergic reaction, over the counter hydrocortisone may help. If you have rough bumpy skin on your upper arms this might be hyperkeratosis pilari, treatable to Urea lotions. The accurate diagnosis of a rash typically requires a phyical exam by a medical provider.

Dr. Jay C. Bradley answered:

Can you use contact solution to treat dry eyes?

Contact solution

Dry_eyes
Contact lens solution is made for contact lenses and not for dry eye. It is therefore not optimal to treat dry eye with this solution. Try using artificial tears, ointment at night, warm compresses, and fish oil supplements. If no improvement, see an eye doctor.

Is it safe to use betadine solution on babies head?

Depends

Head
This is a commonly used disinfectant.I routinely use it for preparing skin for suturing on almost any body surface. I make an effort to remove any residual betadine after the procedure.Leaving it on is thought to increase risk of sensitizing the skin to the product making future use likely to cause a rash.

Can I use IV saline solution for nasal irrigation ?

Absolutely

Saline
Even a higher concentration than 1N may be used. There is evidence that concentrations> 1 N may improve ciliary beat frequency which could help the nose be even cleaner.

Dr. Keshav Narain answered:

Can I use vinegar solution to cure Blepharitis Pls?

Please don't!

Blepharitis
The best home remedy for blepharitis is to use a hot washcloth, just like grandma said to. Soak it with hot water and baby shampoo. Scrub, repeat, rinse. Do this twice a day in the beginning then nightly. Vinegar is acidic and could cause a chemical keratitis or conjunctivitis.

Dr. Tim Conrad answered:

Does it work to use contact lens solution as eye drops?

Not recommended

Contact_lens
Most contact lens solutions contain harsh chemicals to kill germs. These are not good for your eyes. Instead use contact lens rewetting drops which are available over the counter.
