nasalcrom, benadryl (diphenhydramine): Nasalcrom spray and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) are also acceptable otc meds for this age.

If I have fever symptoms that are improving and smoke marijuana, will they get worse after or will the marijuana have no effect?

Marijuana and fever: There is good evidence that marijuana suppresses the immune system to some degree. So, if your fever is due to an infection, the marijuana will make it harder for your body's immune system to fight the infection. My suggestion is to avoid marijuana use until you are back to normal. ...Read more

Monitor and be well: There are many causes of rash. Some are viral, some are bacterial, some are allergic, and many are of unclear cause. My strong advice to you is to monitor the rash. If it gets worse or if you develop other symptoms like fever and pain, you should see a doctor.

Yes, sort of: We all have transient bacterimia, i.e., bacteria in blood, almost every day, when we brush teeth, however the body is efficient in clearing these bacteria. In people with damaged heart valves it may cause infection. You are seeing a doctor and it would be prudent to discuss these issue with her/him.

Always had painful contractions on the first day of my menstrual cycle but never fever symptoms. Recently I started having fever symptom. Is it normal?

Can be: It can be normal to have some fluctuations of temperature as part of a woman's cycle. If it is cyclical, it's likely hormonal. If this is the first time, make sure there's nothing else that could be cause of fever (nobody aches, severe fatigue, nausea/vomiting, etc.) It's still flu season and I wouldn't want you to not be treated for something that could be infectious, rather than hormonal. ...Read more
