Sputum has foul smell. Not coughing otherwise, no cold, no fever. Do have sinus allergies at certain times of year.?
Several possibles: There are several possibilities for bad odors. First, are you certain it's your sputum that has the odor. I'd ramp up my oral hygiene including flossing, gargle to loosen any food particles stuck in throat, use a Neti Pot to rinse your sinuses daily, and see if these improve things in the next 2 weeks. No smoking or tobacco products. Breath mints ok as long as sugarless (less bacterial growth). ...Read more

I get allergies/cold in the end of August every year. It's itchiness in my nose and throat, sneezing bouts, runny nose, mucus. Pollen is low right now?
Molds?: I assume that you live in the Northeast and for that area, ragweed is likely the cause. On the other hand, pollen count reflects only the exposure within a short distance from the counting station and thus may not actually reflect your own exposure. Other possibilities- Mold counts are also high in the fall (b) you may have become allergic to new allergens. ...Read more

26 year-old woman is unable to stop Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) birth control pills after 8 yrs of use, due to heavy vaginal bleeding upon Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) discontinuation.....?
What are goals?: The answer depends on your long term goals. If you do not want more children then an endometrial ablation is a good option. Assuming you do want more children then other options can be considered. Testing for PCOS and hypothyroidism could be done. Since you are missing periods followed by heavy bleeding PCOS seems likely. A sonohystogram should be done to see if a polyp or submucosal fibroid is present. If present then these can be surgically removed as an outpatient. If pregnancy is desired later on but not now a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD could be a great option. This often stops bleeding. If you are satisfied with the pill you could just continue ...Read more

I get really congested due to year round allergies. I can't tolerate the decongestants. Could I try a child's dose to see if it would help?
Avoid decongestants: In general, decongestants are not really effective long-term therapies for allergies. Generally, the effects of decongestants are to constrict blood vessels, throughout the body, which really does nothing to treat the causative problem, which is inflammation related to the allergen. Antihistamines, nasal steroids, allergen avoidance, and leukotriene antagonists are more effective. ...Read more
