Is it okay to store my Flonase in a place that often gets very warm?

Is it okay to store my Flonase in a place that often gets very warm?

Store at 86 deg or <: The package insert for Flonase recommends that it be stored "between 4° and 30°c (39° and 86°f)." the medicine may break down faster if it gets warmer than that, especially if it happens for a long time or if it happens often. That means it won't be as effective when used. ...Read more

Is it bad for your health to use a lot of shampoo like half a handful sometimes it's because my hair is so dry it absorbs it quickly.

Is it bad for your health to use a lot of shampoo like half a handful sometimes  it's because my hair is so dry it absorbs it quickly.

Yes: Soaps can cause dryness to the hair, some dermatologist only recommend washing the hair once a week. The natural oils of the hair are stripped when you wash too often. Hair will remain healthy without much upkeep. If you get dry hair or flakey hair you likely have dandruff and should use head and shoulders or neutrogena t-sal/t-gel. www.bmednyc.com ...Read more

Rest: The webster definition of the word: "to rest" means to not work. I often include in my practice which is mostly of men 'to not work out'. I think you can be up and around but not doing any activity that would stress your immune system or cause strain on your heart or lungs. ...Read more

Naegleria Fowleri: Is the amoeba causing the brain eating syndrome. The usual port of entry is through nostrils by swimming in warm, contaminated waters. Otherwise, I think is safer to boil the water, but for other reasons and if otherwise the water that you drink is not clean. ...Read more

Depends: How old is your baby? Even 1 hour straight of exercising would be too long for any child. And a rock gym is not an ideal playground for a small child. I wouldn't recommend. Ask a second opinion. ...Read more

Does soaking cotton in hot water and then placing it on a cyst help, or is it better just left alone?

Does soaking cotton in hot water and then placing it on a cyst help, or is it better just left alone?

Get it checked: If you are being treated for acne with an antibiotic, you are seeing a physician regularly (at least I hope so). Have him or her look at it. Heat won't make it go away. Since the cyst is big enough to bother you, ask your doctor or see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Is regular dirt thats stirred up in the air harmful to inhale because there is silica in it or does it have to be grounded up for it to be harmful?

Is regular dirt thats stirred up in the air harmful to inhale because there is silica in it or does it have to be grounded up for it to be harmful?

Clean air only: Particulate matter of any sort in the air can reach the lungs where our bodies must try to get rid of it. Why take a chance on a nosocomial disease? If you must ever be in the presence of particulate laden air (dust, smoke etc) you must wear a proper mask to filter out those impurities so that they don't get into your lungs where they can result in permanent damage. ...Read more
