Can having hiccups for 4-5 hours cause a Mallory Weiss tear? I've had a slight pain in the middle upper abdomen, nausea, and black stool.

Mallory Weiss: Sure, Mallory-Weiss syndrome is the term for a tear (laceration) of the inner lining (mucous membrane) of the esophagus where it connects to the stomach (gastroesophageal junction). The tear results from forceful retching, vomiting, or severe hiccupping that is frequently due to an underlying disorder or cause. Please see your provider if you think you have a bleeding. ...Read more

Can children use Clobex?

Can children use Clobex?

Clobex/children: It is safe to use in kids 12 and older. Under age 12, it is a pretty hefty steroid to use for a kid. It is a steroid, and a fairly potent one at that. Kids can absorb it through their skin and it can then affect them as if they ingested it. I would use a lower potency steroid on a kid under 12, although there are occasions when a stronger one is needed - close monitoring is then needed as well ...Read more

Can children use Triesence?

Can children use Triesence?

Specialist decision: Triesence is an injectable steroid into your eye to treat inflammation when steroid eye drops are not helpful. Use on a child would need to be monitored closely and be administered by an eye specialist with experience using this medication. It is not something I typically see in my practice so I suspect your child has a unique health challenge. Good luck!

Can gulteus miminus tears be repaired?

Sure: Most tendon tears can be fixed including gluteus tears. Some authors are even describing arthroscopic/endoscopic options.

I would have to say that most surgeons would not recommend repair of isolated minimus tears, but discus this with your surgeon. ...Read more
