2 yr old dxd with eoe and gp - was on swallowed budesonide for eoe for 3 months - egd showed HSV esophagitis - did steroid cause hsv?

2 yr old dxd with eoe and gp - was on swallowed budesonide for eoe  for 3 months - egd showed HSV esophagitis - did steroid cause hsv?

No: A steroid cannot cause hsv infection. Hsv is a virus that is transmitted to children often transplacentally from the mother in utero. Certainly, the virus can be transmitted orally via oral contact with someone carrying the virus. The steroid can suppress the immune system and allow the virus to activate and become a problem, as it did in this child's esophagus. ...Read more

33 yr old/female. Dizziness and lightheaded. Taking allegra d, symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) and pro-air. Blood pressure 95/60. Why dizziness?

33 yr old/female. Dizziness and lightheaded. Taking allegra d, symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) and pro-air. Blood pressure 95/60. Why dizziness?

BP a bit low: Your BP is a bit low which maybe causing your dizziness. If the dizziness occurs often from rapid change of position from laying to sitting or standing , then likely it is due to low bp. If dizziness associated with change of head position/rapid rotation or up/down position, it is possibly vertigo. Keep well hydrated and take it easy for couple of days. If not better, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Confirmed case of RSV on 20 months old daycare classroom. Should I start her on preventive budesonide treatments just in case?

Confirmed case of RSV on 20 months old daycare classroom. Should I start her on preventive budesonide treatments just in case?

Hard to say: Rsv is the cause of 70% of "colds" in season and is unlikely to cause problems in most over 20 lb. If they have asthma and flare with any cold, I would start at the first sign of related symptoms.It would not prevent their getting RSV. ...Read more

Is symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) a good medicine to treat mid asthma with just deficit of 15% percent of breath? I'm fearing having colateral effects, i'm just 23.

Is symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) a good medicine to treat mid asthma with just deficit of 15% percent of breath? I'm fearing having colateral effects, i'm just 23.

Good med...: Because it is inhaled, very little of this med actually goes systemic so there are very few systemic side effects. Asthma has inflammation as well as bronchospasm so inhaled steroids are used to decrease the inflammation. Be sure to rinse and spit after each use of this inhaler to avoid oral thrush, a fungal mouth problem. ...Read more

My 2-year-old's pediatrician gave me budesonide inhalation suspension to take care of his weezing. Isn't that usually used for asthma?

My 2-year-old's pediatrician gave me budesonide inhalation suspension to take care of his weezing. Isn't that usually used for asthma?

Yes but: Yes, however, it can also be used for croup and other respiratory conditions. In a survey in the new england journal of medicine, half of all 3 year olds had had at least one episode of wheezing in their lives. I am therefore reluctant to give the diagnosis of "asthma" to any child under 4, because that would mean that roughly half of my patients have asthma! ...Read more

Is there anything I can give my 2 year old who has persistent cough? I've already given him albuterol and budesonide. I read Benadryl (diphenhydramine) helps?

See his doctor: Cough can be due to several causes, reactive airway disease is just one, sinusitis, ear infection or any upper respiratory tract infection can still cause it. How did you give him the albuterol and the budesonide? I trust at his age you used a nebulizer, but make sure you've mixed the right dosage and the mask was fitting to his face so the medicine isn't wasted, see his doctor for better assessment ...Read more
