Possibly eczema: Could be a number of things but most likely is a mild case of eczema. Eczema is often inherited and is more commonly seen in families with allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, dry skin and asthma. I would first suggest trying non-drying cleansing bars such as dove and moisturizing the skin immediately after bathing with eucerin or a similar cream. Call your doctor if not improving. ...Read more
Probably: The expiration dates on many medications are for peak effectiveness.

My 7 year old gets small patches of petechiae that come and go for about 8 months now. Should I be worried?
Petechiae not normal: Petechiae are not normal and are caused by low platelets or fragile vessels and if ill, infection, and CBC is a basic test. That said, it is not uncommon for someone to get petechiae on the face from coughing hard, straining or vomiting. It can also be seen from vigorous scratching, something that causes localized suction or a tourniquet-type wrap, and would not need further assessment. ...Read more

I have been treated with jock itch and now I have a dark patch on my skin. It's been almost a year but the patch hasn't gone yet. What do I do?
Hyperpigmentation: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a common and normal response during the healing process. When traumatized skin heals, redness, followed by dark discoloration occurs. With time, the site will usually resume normal coloration to match the surrounding skin. Tight clothing may prolong discoloration due to chronic rubbing and irritation. ...Read more

Google said patent will expire on benicar (olmesartan) April 26 this year is that true? When it generic will it be lot cheaper instead of 280 dollars a month?
Hopefully: Generic drugs tend to be less expensive than their patented precursors. The cost of generics has been trending upwards in the United States making them less affordable than in the past. Call your Congressmen and Senators. Medication in general should not be a luxury product, whether brand or generic. ...Read more

See your doc:
If you believe that you need amoxicillin for a new illness, I would recommend you see your physician to evaluate you again. Not every infection is bacterial (some are viral) and different bacterial infections require different antibiotics. Plus your amoxicillin could have become less effective since it a year old expired. But you need to see your doc for your new illness/medical issue. ...Read more

Many possibilities: These could represent common fungus (tinea corporis), flat warts, a condition called pityriasis alba, as well as many other issues. Some benefit from treatment and some self heal. Because they are in a cosmetically sensitive area on a girl, I would have them evaluated by your doc to see if treatment is needed. ...Read more
Is it safe to take ritalin (methylphenidate) la that expired a year ago? And if so, will it still work properly?
Generally, yes.: As long as the med wasn't exposed to extreme environmental factors (heat, overly dry climate, etc.), oral tablets&capsules are "good" for much longer than the exp date. The military studied this many yrs ago, &found drop-off in effectiveness negligible for such meds for much more than a decade. Ritalinla is a reliable product w/ the type of characteristics that should hold up. Generics less certain. ...Read more

Hives can last about three to five days possibly longer but consult ur dr if much longer especially if u can't figure out the reason for them. ...Read more
Hello there m 31 year old male from Nepal. For couple day m seeing white patches on private part. Is it's normal?
I li accidentally gave my 6 year old daughter expired cold medicine which is expired in sep 2017 what should I do now?
Relax: These things are combinations of various antihistamines & decongestants with little effect anyway. The dating is required by the FDA, but out of date does not mean toxic, many remain stable for a year or more after that date. The potency diminishes in some, but not where it matters much. I would be comfortable using it for now, but update your supply if you like to use this stuff. ...Read more
