Allergies?: You may be allergic or sensitive to some of the foods and liquids you ingest. See your dentist to give you a thorough oral exam to rule out other possible causes. You might want to see an allergist as well. See if you can figure it out yourself. Pay attention to what causes this and if there is some common link (such as citrus, cinnamon, etc.).

Maybe/maybe not: There are some strains that are relatively resistant to that family of antibiotics. A partial treatment may be too brief and you may remain contageous. You might check back with your doc and see if s/he will send out something else.

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat)... or when she is an adult patient who also has a fever of 101.6.

I washed my hair with lice shampoo and used the treatment but head still itches. Help?

Check again: I would thouroughly check your head and hair again for any remaining lice or nits. Often, many of the treatments need to be repeated one week after initial treatment. Also, keep in mind that the shampoos used to treat lice can cause some irritation to the scalp which can induce itching and may not represent a residual lice infestation.

I've recently begun to have intense itching of my scalp at night. What causes it & what is recommended treatment?)I have dry mouth--any connection?

More info needed: Most identifiable causes of itchy scalp are associated with rash, scale, or other visible skin abnormalities. A thorough description or a good look at the scalp would be helpful. Any new hair/scalp products being used? Hard to think of a connection with dry mouth, unless you're using an antihistamine for the itch.

This: This is not time for a home remedy, you have already waited too long to get the situation evaluated by your physician. I suggest contacting your physician immediately for an evaluation. You run the ultimate risk of losing eyesight in that eye.

At different times in the past 2 weeks the area around my mouth itches really bad. Why is that?

Irritation/allergy: Irritation from licking the lips could cause this. A perioral dermatitis is another possibility. Hydrocortisone 1% cream (available otc) may help. Contact allergy is another possibility, and if the offending substance can be identified, avoidance is the best strategy.
