Night Cream For 20s
I'm 33 years old, having frequent night sweats and itching, already applying daily bioderma atoderm pp baume and using 100% cotton bed sheets.
Night sweats: Night sweats are often an indication of breaking fever since sweating is your body's way of losing heat. This is often associated with tuberculosis or other chronic infections, but sometimes with non-infectious inflammations. Cannot easily explain your itching with this and only a face to face exam with a doctor will help to resolve this. Go and be seen. Good luck and hope this clears up soon. ...Read more

Humidifier: People who live in climates with low humidity (esp in the winter) can greatly benefit from using a humidifier during the night. Prevent dryness by using OTC nasal saline to rinse and open nasal passages to avoid mouth breathing at night. Avoid OTC cold remedies as the medications worsen oral dryness. Maintain good hydration during daytime. ...Read more

How many days does Gabapentin take to start relieving headaches (taking 100mg a night for first 3 nights, then 100 2x/day, then 200 2x/d, up to 400 3x/d)?
Unlikely success: If you have migraine headaches, I seriously doubt that gabapentin will help either relieve or prevent headaches. However, you may be taking a calcium channel blocker, and an increased dose may help. Discuss all of this with a headache specialist. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
