Pro mean with: and bio means life. Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics (which are sometimes needed) they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems and we can have digestive problems. This can happen w/out antibiotics at times too. So, the probiotics replace the good bacteria that are missing or low. Do what doc says. Peace. ...Read more

Irritant dermatitis.: I assume the hairdresser spilled some of the relaxing chemical on your ear - which gives you an idea of how strong that stuff is! Bacitracin is not going to get it done; a steroid cream, if you have one, might help somewhat, and hold a washcloth soaked in warm water to the area in the evening, perhaps while you're watching tv. If it's not markedly better in a few days, let your doctor take a look. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
