What is the best way to break fever for my 3 year old?  Also will tylenol (acetaminophen) weakening his immune system in the long run?

It is fever!: Anything over 100.5 is fever. If the child is acting normal you can watch and re check the temp. If no other symptoms and fever lasts for more than 3 days see the doctor. Tylenol (acetaminophen) helps to relieve the symptom but does not do anything to the underlying problem. Tylenol (acetaminophen) does not affect the immune system but i would give the correct dose occasionally for short term fever or pain relief. ...Read more

Can our immune system fight off ringworm infection on our bodies without getting any treatment?If so, how long?1-2 months?

Maybe: Ringworm may or may not remit in weeks or months. In the meantime, treatment is utterly banal -- almost any cheap, safe topical fungicide will do the trick in a few days. For the sake of your co-workers, any romantic partners, and yourself -- take care of your ringworm like a 21st century gentleman. ...Read more

Hey, greetings from Slovenia. I'd love to know what's the best, the fastest, the most affective natural or anything thing to boost my immune system?

Hey, greetings from Slovenia. I'd love to know what's the best, the fastest, the most affective natural or anything thing to boost my immune system?

Not proven effective: Many "non-medical" supplements, foods, herbs, and techniques are claimed to "boost" the immune system, but none have been proven effective. The immune system is complex, and "boosting" it to make it act stronger is not always a good thing. In conditions like arthritis, thyroid disease, diabetes type 1, lupus, eczema, etc..., the immune system is over-acting and damaging the patient's own organs. ...Read more

I want to know my options for treating foreign body in respiratory tract?

REMOVE FB's: Any foreign body in 'the respiratory tract' probably should be removed. Foreign bodies in the bronchi/trachea of the lungs can cause irritation, cough, infection and bronchoscopy by a pulmonologist is the best way to manage the problem.
