My 2 yr daughter has hand, foot and mouth disease for last 4 days. The ulcers / blisters in mouth make it difficult for her to drink and eat. What medication will be most suitable?

My 2 yr daughter has hand, foot and mouth disease for last 4 days. The ulcers / blisters in mouth make it difficult for her to drink and eat. What medication will be most suitable?

Numb the mouth: Anything that will decrease the pain in the mouth will help her drink. Ice cold foods act as a local anesthesia as they numb the area. Try popsicles, ice cream, jello, as well as pedialyte popsicles that will keep her hydrated. Also oragel will help. As it is a viral disease, there is no antibiotics that will help it. It will go away on its own. ...Read more

I am taking cymbalta (duloxetine) for fibromyalgia and have gained 20lbs with hand and feet swelling. Are there other drugs that treat fibromyalgia with less side?

I am taking cymbalta (duloxetine) for fibromyalgia and have gained 20lbs with hand and feet swelling. Are there other drugs that treat fibromyalgia with less side?

Make sure is Fibro: Fibromyalgia is one of the most overly diagnosed condition today. There are many underlying conditions that can explain many of the symptoms that are more common-place and actually treatable. Conditions of the neck and low back will frequently have "myofascial" (muscle, tendon, ligament=soft-tissues) related pain that will spread quite far at times. Seek pain specialist eval. If needed for options. ...Read more

I'm 25 years old and have horrible pain in my knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, hands, and feet pretty much all joints. What could cause this??

Many things: Systemic inflammation (acute infection, autoinflammatory diseases such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis), stress (emotional or physical), hypersensitivity to pain or abnormal pain suppression pathways (fibromyalgia), joint abnormalities (connective tissue diseases such an Marfan syndrome or Ehler-Danlos syndrome), blood disorders (anemia, leukemia) and many more. Would need more info to fine tune. ...Read more

What is the grade level of my sprain? I recently had my feet slip out from underneath me going down some wet steps and sprained my wrist/hand pretty good. Its been a week and it still a bother. I would bend it and it would feel like a cramp, my range of m

What is the grade level of my sprain? I recently had my feet slip out from underneath me going down some wet steps and sprained my wrist/hand pretty good. Its been a week and it still a bother. I would bend it and it would feel like a cramp, my range of m

The: The wrist is a complex structure involving 15 bones coming together. There are, therefore, multiple joints between these bones and a large number of ligaments holding them all together. We still have only a very basic understanding of the mechanics of the wrist.

A good hand surgeon will try to evaluate all of these structures with a careful examination and x-rays. Sometimes getting what are called "stress views" will show injuries that typical x-rays will not. Mri can be helpful, but usually with stronger magnets at 3 tesla. However, they can still miss injuries or report injuries that are not really there. They are only meaningful if they clarify the symptoms and exam findings.

Thankfully, most injuries resolve with rest, but there are 2 injuries that can be missed and have significant consequences: scaphoid fractures and scapholunate ligament injuries. With any wrist injury, a re-evaluation in 10-14 days can be helpful to show injuries that were not apparent when the injury happened. I would make sure you have a follow-up appointment with your physician. ...Read more

Here are some...: At suspecting drug allergy, stop the offending drug and seek evaluation / counseling for possible use of antihistamine and a short 3-5 day course of steroid; if short of breath occurs, take emergency visit right away; if just having bearable itch with no swelling of mouth, take antihistamine and wait out-if not getting better as expected in 3-5 days, seek medical attention timely. ...Read more

10 days before the 40th birthday I could not move out of bed. Something was wrong with my back in the upper region toward my neck.....?

Honest: This is not a case for HealthTap. You need a 1-1 evaluation by a neurologist and/or rheumatologist. The efforts of the available HealthTap MD's have been outstanding as far as they could go In fact, if you are near the Mayo or Lahey clinics, then you should go there for an inter-discipline evaluation. In absolutely no sense of criticism, you have been through what I call "too much:" and need important psychological support to help you work this thru. H. Robert Silverstein, MD, FACC ...Read more

I smashed my foot pretty hard against a sofa and my fourth toe (beside my pinky) crooked to the right. I turned it back in place but it looks off?

I smashed my foot pretty hard against a sofa and my fourth toe (beside my pinky) crooked to the right. I turned it back in place but it looks off?

Buddy tape: It sounds like you may have broken your toe. I would buddy tape it. Get a bandage (not bandaid) and wrap the 4th and 3rd toe together. This will help keep 4th from moving around. Keep it that way for 5-7 days. Iburofen should help with swelling as well as resting. If its still painful in 2-3 days go see your doctor you may need to be referred to podiatrist/ortho ...Read more

My foot thumb has swollen by gout...i have take medical with cataflam (diclofenac) 50 mg drug...its ok now. But the swell still there...what should I do?

Takes quality time.: Many patients seem to think that the correct way to treat gout is to manage the symptoms at the time of the acute attack. The inflammation causing pain is only one characteristic of gout. The long term swelling will take a more long term, managed control of the disorder. For this you will need a physician, experienced in managing all the issues involved in effectively controlling gout. ...Read more
