A hydrocortisone cream would work better on an itchy insect bite. ...Read more

Is it ok to give my 39 day baby fenistil dropps and for how long becausd she dont sleep at all?

Encourage Dad to help change and feed by pumping breast milk for night-time use. No reason for both of you to be exhausted. Sorry--it just comes with the territory. Make sure they are fed, dry, and comfortable. NO MEDS needed! ...Read more

Yes.: Taking an antihistamine can reduce the local reaction of a bee sting, as can topical antihistamines.

Also, if you have any lip, tongue or breathing symptoms, please see a doctor right away. ...Read more
