Family practice : I'm not sure what you are asking you can still lose weight when you are sick. But i don't think that is what you're asking. Are you asking if losing weight either caused your illness or will hinder your recovery. It sometimes may if you're not taking enough protein or vit c. I would suggest getting your infection over then resume dieting. ...Read more

Tamiflu (oseltamivir) Side-effects: Tamiflu (oseltamivir) can cause significant issues with vomiting and gastrointestinal upset. Valacyclovir and amoxicillin can cause GI upset but are less common causes. Oseltamivir should be used with a positive test for influenza. Many people prescribe it just in case. Amoxicillin for sore throat should be given after a positive Strep test. Were you tested for Strep and Influenza? ...Read more

My 6months baby has fever and throat infection. he is on augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) and panadol for two days now but the fever is not getting better. what should i do. pls help?

Can recheck with Dr.: A 6 month baby can have a fever when there is an infection. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin drops are commonly used (for fevers over 100-101 degrees) to lower the fever so the baby will be more comfortable and less fussy. Parents should have a baby rechecked if symptoms are not better after a couple of days, or if symptoms are worse at any time. Strep throat infections feel better after 2-3 days of Augmentin. ...Read more

I am a massive smoker aged 24, I fall sick (fever ,cold , throat infections) regularly in a span of 2 to 3 months, is this a symptom for something big?

You answered .....: ....your own question. You said "massive" smoker. Doesn't that sound like something BIG? Smoking really does cause cancer, as well as chronic bronchitis, COPD, and a bunch of other stuff that may not be very pleasant later on. Now at 24, you are getting throat infections every couple of months. Soon it will be acute bronchitis and pneumonia every few months. Stop smoking now-SaveYourLife ! ...Read more
