Swollen lips, wheeze, cough, tightness in throat, tightness in chest are all present during my kids month on tobi (tobramycin). I wear n95 1 hr & hepabut still sx.

Talk to your doctor: Much of the dose of tobi (tobramycin) goes into the air rather than directly into the child, especially when given with a mask rather than mouthpiece. It sounds like you are having a reaction to it. Talk to your child's doctor who has prescribed the tobi (tobramycin). It may be necessary to switch to a different inhaled antibiotic for your child rather than tobi (tobramycin).

Why are hare lips such a common birth defect, is it something that the mom eats during pregnancy?

No known food causes: Cleft lip occurs when left, right, and upper parts of the lip do not fuse properly in an embryo. No foods are known to cause it. Maternal smoking and alcohol/drug abuse increase the chances of a cleft. Cleft lip runs in some families, but can also happen in a variety of genetic mutations. It occurs least in africans (<1 in 1000 births) and most in oriental asians and native americans (3-4/1000).

Is home ipl (phillips) treatment for facial hair removal (upper lip only) safe during pregnancy? Is it permanent?

Hair Removal: I do not feel there is any home unit for hair removal that is either permanent or effective. The lasers that we use in the office is tremendously more powerful and at one talk I was at, the expert said that the amount of laser light you get from the home units is no more than a simple laser pointer!
