A person who already has hsv 2 cannot get it again. The same goes for the hsv 1, the simplex virus. I am unsure why you are both on meds. ...Read more
The redness on my incision site doesn't seem to be going away. Is there any antibiotic cream that i can use to help with the redness?
Surgical follow-up: If there's redness that you think is abnormal - you need to let your surgeon know about this.

You don't want to 'sit' on a wound infection that could worsen without the proper treatment. Surgeons are usually happy to know about these things ...Read more

If someone has a localized infection and is on broad spectrums, could a warm compress to that area theoretically increase the antibiotic going to it?
Probably not: Inflammation itself -- the process that makes an infected area sore, reddened, swollen, etc -- maximizes antibiotic penetration into infected areas. If there is any additional effect of warmth, it is trivial. If warm compresses feel good, feel free. But the infection won't clear up faster. ...Read more

If an alcoholic goes to rehab and gets to point in withdrawal of confusion/hallucinations- how then would you treat that? Meds, etc?
Assess: You wouldn't treat it without developing an opinion about what is causing it. It would be assessed. If it turns out that it is a withdrawal syndrome, that would certainly be treated with medications. If it is delirium tremens -- your symptoms suggest this -- then that would be more serious, and would require medical hospitalization. ...Read more
