What is the best soap for the vaginal and rectum area that isn't too harsh for every day use, thank you ?

Best soap. : Some of my most fastidious patients have ended up changing their vaginal flora by using soap too enthusiastically in their genital area. I recommend soaping only the areas exposed when you clench your thighs together. Other than that, I don't recommend any particular type of soap. I do prefer products without parabens. ...Read more

Is it possible for me to use ciloxan (ciprofloxacin) on a 3 year old child for earache?

Is it possible for me to use ciloxan (ciprofloxacin) on a 3 year old child for earache?

Nope: Don't do it. Have the earache checked out by a doctor to determine the cause. Most earaches in 3 yr olds involve the middle ear, so anything one put in the outer ear canal wouldn't help anyway. Even if the problem is in the outer ear, don't use eye medications in the ear. No shortcut here. Get the proper medicine and use it according to doctor's instructions. Hope the little one feels better soon. ...Read more

What is the best way to cure a bad diaper rash?

What is the best way to cure a bad diaper rash?

Keep 'em clean: Prevention is better than cure. Remember to use small amounts of baby powder, since larger amounts tend to hold the moisture next to the skin instead of allowing the diapers to do their job. For a cure, meticulous hygiene, allowing the area to air dry, and using light amounts of over-the-counter products usually works. There are also prescription cures which you can get by seeing your doctor. ...Read more
