Handled raw chicken while cooking with a small cut on my hand - washed afterwards with antibacterial soap and alcohol. Will I be ok?

Handled raw chicken while cooking with a small cut on my hand - washed afterwards with antibacterial soap and alcohol. Will I be ok?

Likely will be ok: If the small cut (in a healthy person) was not deep enough to need "closure" by a doctor, it should heal up just like any other shallow small cut on the skin. If it looks too reddish, is too tender, is swollen, or is oozing stuff, a doctor can check for infection. Adults should be up to date on tetanus shots, which means having a Tdap shot (contains whooping cough protection) in the past 10 years. ...Read more

What to expect during drug and alcohol test?

What to expect during drug and alcohol test?

You can expect: for the process to be formal, regimented, and documented if done by trained collectors and breath alcohol technicians.

This is all done in an effort to protect you but is also very impersonal on purpose. ...Read more

Hello Sir. I am on Tavanic 500, and taking one tablet every day. Can I consume alcohol during this course?

Hello Sir. I am on Tavanic 500, and taking one tablet every day. Can I consume alcohol during this course?

No.: I assume you have been prescribed this antibiotic for some sort of infection. If so, you are probably going to be taking it for no more than 14 days. If you can't go for 2 weeks without a drink of alcohol, you have a MUCH BIGGER PROBLEM than the infection that your doctor is treating you for. You should not be combining alcohol with ANY prescription drug. ...Read more

Alcohol = a toxin: No matter how enjoyable even moderate alcohol drinking may be, the fact remains that it is a toxin for your body -- especially liver and brain. Essentially you're asking your body to process a poison. So, your body will be less efficient both during intoxication and until all traces of alcohol have been processed. Remember that hangover is multifaceted. Be well. ...Read more

Does eating a large meal during drinking help slow the process of alcohol and clear your body of it faster?

Does eating a large meal during drinking help slow  the process of alcohol and clear your body of it faster?

Yes and no: yes, it does slow the process of alcohol absorption, but it does nothing to increase its clearance. Safe alcohol consumption in women is no more than 7 standard drinks per week, averaging no more than 1 per day, and never more than 3 drinks on any one occasion. While eating slows the absorption, you will reach the same alcohol level depending on how much you drink. It's NOT safer. ...Read more

During my teens i partied hard w/coke, acid, weed & alcohol 39 now healthy so far otherthan hypo. What things could I do to cleansemy internal organs?

Embrace life: Congratulations on walking away from substance abuse. Many teens do this sort of thing for friendship (such as it is) or to distance themselves from difficult situations in the home. You've made the right choice. Your body self-cleanses, and it seems as if you've chosen to clear your mind as well. Learn from your past, and focus on the present and future. ...Read more
