No need: Just make sure to blink frequently and look away for a brief time or give yourself short breaks. We tend to stare at the monitor and forget to blink. Blinking stimulate tear production otherwise you will dry up. When we look up close we contract our eye muscles which after a while it will cause eye strain. You need to look away to relax muscles. People over 40 May need computer glasses ...Read more

Does taking a cool bath for fever really help?

Does taking a cool bath for fever really help?

May/not: The skin is the only part of our body supplied with active temperature sensors. Depending on the water temperature, a cold bath may tell the brain to turn on more heat and thus defeat any temporary benefit of the process. If immersed in water no more than 15 degrees below the desired temp, you may bypass that reflex. I haven't advised this to a parent in decades. ...Read more

Why might confusion occur in an elderly person taking a hot bath?

Why might confusion occur in an elderly person taking a hot bath?

Only when bathing?: I'm not aware of anything medical to explain why anyone, regardless of age, would become confused only when taking a hot bath, assuming that they don't become confused using more tepid water or when not bathing. My guess is that there's an underlying condition, perhaps dementia, that's exacerbated by misunderstanding or fear of bathing. Try a bird bath instead. You know, sponge bath. Or shower. ...Read more
