The definitive treatment is surgical, the affected part of the nail or cuticle needs to be opened to allow the paronychia to drain. If that does not help, a portion of the nail can be removed. ...Read more
Both are medical doctors: They both have identical training, and specialties. The only difference is that osteopathic physicians take additional coursework in manual medicine to treat pain, and dysfunction, and a year-long anatomy course that helps to understand functional anatomy relationships better, as it applies to disease states, while in medical school. The basic osteopathic philosophy regards the body as an integrated whole with structures and functions working interdependently, versus a disease oriented health care. ...Read more

I have been taking allegra (fexofenadine)-d for 8 yrs and I have switched to regular allegra (fexofenadine). Should there be a difference?
Allegra (fexofenadine) alone: Allegra d contains a decongestant that is a poor long term option.

Otherwise regular Allegra should be sufficient as an antihistamine. ...Read more
