One speculation is to minimize exposure of the body to small pharmaceutical synthetics. Tylenol (acetaminophen) & Motrin both purport to treat pain. Use combinations under direction of a doctor. ...Read more

Peroxide Humidifier: Do you have a cool mist humidifier? Fill it with one bottle of hydrogen peroxide, and two bottles of water. That will give you a 1% aerosolized mist of hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide kills the bugs on contact (virus or bacteria) as you breath in the mist, and breaks down into water and oxygen. Your son should feel better in a day or two. Helps protect the rest of the family, too. ...Read more

I have had productive cough for 3 days. Now, it becomes excessive and it annoys me. What kind of medication should I take to relieve this symptom?

Anti-tussive: Anti-tussive is a fancy term for cough medication. In the States, these are available over-the-counter w/o prescription. I don't know about Cambodia.

How long will it take for a siatica symptom on leg to go away after a disc injury on back? It's going 3 months. Any quick relief suggestions?

Varies: It depends on how long you had sciatica prior to surgery. Those with leg pain for 6 months or longer before surgery have higher risk of some residual leg pain after disc surgery.

If your symptoms are caused by pregnancy then they would be high enough for detection. ...Read more

How much force does it take to have another concussion after you already suffered one? Laptop bumped my head. Only symptom I had was headache.
