The reason behind ' long use of (quick relief medications for asthma) may cause serious side effecs ?!

The reason behind ' long use of (quick relief medications for asthma) may cause serious side effecs ?!

More severe asthma: Rescue inhalers and long acting bronchodilators (salmeterol, formoterol, indacaterol), do not treat the allergic inflammation of athma. In many asthmatics (not all), they lose their efficacy over time. They also may mask worsening asthma. Therefore, remember: if you use a rescue inhaler more than x2/week daytime (except before exercise) or x2/month at night, see your doctor. ...Read more

Treatment for hair follicles: is there any recent treatment? I use the laser treatment but the hair bumps comes back after some time

Treatment for hair follicles: is there any recent treatment? I use the laser treatment but the hair bumps comes back after some time

Folliculitis : I think you mean folliculitis which is an infection of the hair follicles. But you mention a laser which sounds like laser hair removal. At any rate, removing the follicle will help the infection but you need a topic antibiotic as well. Ees (erythromycin ethyl succinate) pads work well. Make sure you are not allergic to something you are putting on your skin. ...Read more

Which type of laser therapy will you prefer for a 40yr female patient,came with melasma on her face for 8years..tried medicine but not cured.

Which type of laser therapy will you prefer for a 40yr female patient,came with melasma on her face for 8years..tried medicine but not cured.

See a dermatologist: Details matter. You fail to specify any detail about the "medicine". Prescription creams are more effective than laser for melasma. Typical approach is to use sunscreen every AM. At night she would apply a cream combining a retinoic acid, a low strength steroid, a hydroquinone, maybe others. Expect to do this for several months. It is less costly and more effective than laser. ...Read more

Tried NSAIDS for plantar fasciitis pain which offered no relief. Is time and ice the best medicine to treat?

Tried NSAIDS for plantar fasciitis pain which offered no relief. Is time and ice the best medicine to treat?

Time & ice: are excellent to use for plantar fasciitis. I also highly recommend stretching at least 3x/day, massaging the area with an anti-inflammatory (natural or prescribed), wearing supportive shoes, not going barefoot when walking, and refraining from aerobics or jogging for around 6 weeks! NSAIDS and local steroid injections can be used, however not always needed. Surgery is not typical. Get better! ...Read more

Is  pdt treatment for numerous facial actinic kerotosis well recognized?  Will the side effects keep you out of work for an extended time?

PDT effective for AK: Actinic keratoses (ak) are precancerous lesions. When you have many, your dermatologist might recommend field treatment with photodynamic therapy using ala and blue light. Ala is preferentially absorbed by ak's, and when activated with blue light, these cells are preferentially destroyed. Pain and crusting are side effects.
