My 7 year old son recently began blinking constantly. His pediatric ian said it was most likely allergies and not to worry about tourettes.

He might even switch his tick (shoulder shrug, cough, etc). He he starts having motor (blinking) and vocal tics (making noises) then you would be more concerned about tourettes. If the blinking is bothering him you could consider treatment. For now try to ignore. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Ian in a clinical study for the sapien S3 aorta valve are you familiar with this valve is it better than open heart?
Time will tell: The clinical study you are participating in should give us more information on the efficacy of the Sapien valve vs open heart. "Better" has a lot to do with long term outcomes (like the number of complications such as infection or valve tearing free and how patients compare in terms of overall quality of life) between the 2 treatments. For now, "better" depends on your surgeon's experience. ...Read more

What do the doctors here in health tap think about professor ian frazer HSV vaccine on trial? If it is going to work on curing hsv2, maybe hsv1 also?
We hope: Dr frazer is clearly a thought leader in immunology and vaccines. I think the vaccine had a good chance of preventing hsv2 and maybe he will work on one for hsv1. However, when it comes to cure i doubt it. It might control it for a longer period of time but not cure it. Incredibly enough, with all these great minds working on viruses, we haven't cured a single virus yet. However we hope! ...Read more
