Re the issue of ice pack vs heat pack for someone with costochrondritis?Tried a heat pack - disappointed, ice pack seems better, what does each offer?

Ice..,: costochondritis is often helped w/ NSAIDs ( Ibuprofen , for example) and ice packs or ice massage to the affected rib, especially when symptoms are of recent origin or after exercise . Ice 'vasoconstricts' ( decreases size of blood vessels ) and thus often improves the swelling associated w/ costochondritis. Additionally it may help to 'numb' the affected area and lessen the pain . Best of Luck! ...Read more

I use sunscreen& either burn or breakout. Use fluticasone propionate cream, calamin lotion, lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream on sunburn? If not wants good to use?

I use sunscreen& either burn or breakout. Use fluticasone propionate cream, calamin lotion, lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream on sunburn?  If not wants good to use?

Apply cool...: ...Washcloths often, and take Ibuprofen to decrease the pain and inflammation. If you burn after applying a sunscreen, you are not using one that is strong enough, or applying it often enough. Breakouts are usually from the vehicle. So choose a spray or thin lotion with a high spf (55 or higher) and apply it often while you are in the sun. ...Read more

1 year daughtr,diper rash,apply cream,get worse,apply olive oil,lil better,again cream get bad,now olive oil,remain same, that cream worked always but?

Diaper rash: You don't say how long this is going on, or what cream you are using..but whenever you have a diaper rash that got better and then got worse or one that is lasting a long time, you need to think that it is yeast. Give your daughter's doctor a call in the morning. In the meantime, I'd stop putting stuff on it and just let things "air dry" for a while. ...Read more

Can I use 1% silver sulfadiazine cream of poison izy rash? If so, do I continue to use calamine lotion?

Can I use 1% silver sulfadiazine cream of poison izy rash? If so, do I continue to use calamine lotion?

USELESS: Silver sulfadiazine will not relieve you in any way. Calamine lotion is barely effective. "Poison" ivy is a violent reaction which will occur only on those allergic to it and only where the sap came on the skin. A prescription strength cortisone is very effective. Clobetasol gel or augmented betamethasone cream,. OK to wash. No special soap makes any difference. Not contagious. Will not spread. ...Read more
