Can table salt be used to treat hot water burns?

Can table salt be used to treat hot water burns?

Not really: Minor partial-thickness burns will heal on their own, given good wound care. Keep the wound clean and apply antibiotic ointment to it until healed. Use simple pain meds, such as Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen for discomfort. If it does not heal or seems like it's getting infected, you should seek medical care. ...Read more

My 14 month old grand daughter wont drink milk! around 8mnths old only drank 8-16oz formula/day and since we transitioned, wont drink any. Eats table food drinks water/juuce. Is this unhealthy?

My 14 month old grand daughter wont drink milk! around 8mnths old only drank 8-16oz formula/day and since we transitioned, wont drink any. Eats table food drinks water/juuce. Is this unhealthy?

Juice is not needed: Carrying around a Sippy cup or bottle, sipping juice ad-lib or falling asleep with a bit in her mouth causes cavities. If she missed a 1 yr. dental check-up, take her now. Wean from bottle before 15 mos., or she'll protest more. If she doesn't drink 16 oz./day of whole milk from an open-mouth cup with meals or eat 16 oz./day dairy foods,she may need a calcium supplement. See healthychildren.org ...Read more

Will 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar in 8oz of distilled water for 3 months help with plague in your arteries?

Will 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar in 8oz of distilled water for 3 months help with plague in your arteries?

Possibly but...: Apple cider vinegar is touted as a miracle cure for many things including arterial plaque. I believe it has many health benefits but know of no scientific evidence that it clears plaque. There is limited evidence it may lower cholesterol & it may also reduce lead levels as a mild chelator; these properties may help plaque, but it would take more than 3 months. Vit k & glisodin may help even more. ...Read more

1yr old will only drink whole milk..No table food, sometimes baby food, no water or juice. I need advice on feeding. She cries bc she is hungry. :(?

It's either a neuro-: developmental disorder with delayed self-help & oral-motor skills or a bad habit Stop all bottles & juice; give water for thirst. Limit milk to 16 oz./day from an open-mouth cup at sit-down meals. Let her finger-feed 1 tbsp. of each food for 10 min. before offering help. Don't nag or beg. Ignore protests.Take a developmental screen from firstsigns.org to her 1-yr. medical & dental check-up ...Read more

25yodiagnosed w pots syndrome by tilt table test. When I get hot or move positions I keep feeling faint & pass out. I drink lots water and eat healty?

See below: Treatment of pots (postural tachycardia syndrome) can be challenging. Some patients improve with Fludrocortisone which retain fluid and prevent the drop in blood pressure that causes lightheadedness. Drinking plenty of fluids is usually helpful. There are other drug therapies than can be tried if symptoms persist often a therapeutic trial is necessary to find what works best in an individual. ...Read more

If i put one table spoon of baking soda in 8 oz glass of water after every meal, will this cure my acid reflux? And is it safer than omeprazole for acid reflux?

If i put one table spoon of baking soda in 8 oz glass of water after every meal, will this cure my acid reflux? And is it safer than omeprazole for acid reflux?

No.: And not safer. Too much sodium for starts. I would try an h2 blocker, before moving to a ppi like omeprazole. Long term use can causes many problems. 150-300mg of generic Zantac (ranitidine) may be all you need! ...Read more
