Possible reasons why they stop selling contac?

Possible reasons why they stop selling contac?

Contac Capsules: It was my understanding that OTC Contac capsules were taken off the market because they contained potentially dangerous doses of belladonna alkaloids such as atropine and homatropine. These compounds were intended to dry up secretions which they did very well. However, belladonna alkaloids are potentially dangerous, especially as an OTC medications. ...Read more

4hiv from blood contact, do large amount of blood need to come in contac with large deep cut not superficial cut or am I wrong?

4hiv from blood contact, do large amount of blood need to come in contac with large deep cut not superficial cut or am I wrong?

HIV is hard to get: This is not a scenario that describes how HIV is contracted. Of course blood or semen can cause infection in they are directly introduced into the body's cavities.

Contact through a cut in the skin just is not part of the story in those with HIV in the world. If it was health care workers, prison workers, spouses and other care givers at home would be infected and they are not. ...Read more

If some1 whohas a high temperature, virus. Touched the money I have to take now, can I get a temperature or get virus? By contac with money? Asap

Possible: Many viruses can be spread by droplets. Droplets can be transmitted on surfaces. They generally do not live for long outside the human host, but some are better than others.

The scenario would be this: someone sneezes on their hand - or has stool on their hand, they touch the money, hand it to you, you touch the money then touch a mucous membrane. ...Read more

My son is 13. he has a bush down below, very little pit hair, and only a 1.5 inch penis soft and a 3 inch when erect. Is his normal or should I contac?

Penis size: Your son by description is in mid puberty. We use something called Tanner stages to assess phase of puberty. Tanner stages look at body hair in armpits and genital area. Also look at size of testicles. Your son's penis is normal in size for mid puberty. Would be helpful to have him seen by his pediatrician for confirmation and reassurance. ...Read more

None of them!: OTC cough and cold meds have no proven benefit, they just have side effects and often make you feel worse, and your cold last longer! Stop, rest, fluids, blow your nose. Avoid fragrances and aerosols, If no better in a few days, see your doc. See http://www. Cochrane.

How do I stop cloudy film from forming inside my contac lens? I have been wearing gas permeable contact lenses without any significant problems. In the last 6 months, everytime I put my contact lenses on- the right lens gets cloudy and it has a film over

This: This could be a fit issue where debris is being trapped. It could also be the gpc as previously mentioned. I also see similar issues with severe lid inflammation and contact lens use - make sure you are cleaning your eyelids very well each day. I also feel patients that use make-up around the eyes need to be careful with contact lens use. It is amazing the amount of make-up that makes its way into the tear film. ...Read more

Bartholins cyst: A swelling just at the vagina towards the lower part is often a bartholins gland cyst. It can be caused by sweaty rubbing such as sex or exercise. Common initial treatment is warm packs for 10 minutes 2-4 x daily or bath soaks. If the swelling persists or worsens, examination is helpful to determine cause and best treatment. Sometimes incision and drainage is needed. ...Read more
