Needs throat culture: The cilicaine sounds like a local anesthetic. Your child needs a throat culture so that a specific diagnosis can be made.

No: Treat fever with acetaminophen every 4-6 hours. The chickenpox needs to be treated with an anti viral medication such as acyclovir. No ASA or NSAID products. All the best and remember you were infectious before the rash developed and you are infectious until the rash is crusted. Avoid young children not immunized, people with trouble fighting disease and the elderly. All the best. ...Read more
Went twice to doctors and he keeps giving me meds for chest/throat infection and i'm not getting better can't sleep and lot of cough with chest tight?
Infection: Without the ability to examine you and obtain a full history it is impossible to know what is going on. Would suggest that if you are dissatisfied with the opinions being given by your doctor that you get a second opinion from a specialist (either a pulmonologist or infectious diseases expert). Good luck and hope you are better soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lymph nodes less than 1cm in neck otorhinolaryngologist gave me klacid 250 and zinnat 500

Lymphadenopathy: It depends on whether the lymph nodes are symptomatic or not when they're smaller than 1 cm.

If the airways are inflamed, air has more difficulty getting to your lungs... For further info google it ...Read more

Ultrasound can help the MD "see" exactly where the injection should go. You may wish to talk to your Family MD to find out who, in your community, can do USGI. ...Read more

My dr. Diag me with thursh. Gave me nystatin. There are a few bumps in the back of mouth and is the meds suppose to create bad breath?
Have follow up: In general, thrush will resolve within 2 weeks of taking nyastatin if the directions are appropriately followed. Once resolved you should see your dentist for a follow up to confirm that there are no more signs of thrush. At that time have them look at the bumps to determine if they are normal (might be normal papillae), and also evaluate for halitosis, or bad breath, to see if it's related. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
