What To Do If You Inhale Too Much Bleach
Fresh air.: Don't worry, you probably didn't do any permanent damage. We've all smelled too much bleach or cleaning solutions at some point in our lives. The best thing to do is make sure the air you're breathing currently is without irritants like tobacco smoke or other vapors, and that you're sleeping in a well ventilated room. If you've developed a cough that's persisting past 1-2 wks, get checked out. ...Read more
Type?: What kind of powder? If talcum (baby) powder, you may have difficulty breathing or coughing. This can cause irritation but hopefully resolves as your body coughs it out. If you have any type of lung disease, even controlled asthma, you may want to see your doctor if you have symptoms. ...Read more
Get help cutting: down, or stopping altogether would be my suggestion. Safe alcohol consumption in men is no more than 2 standard drinks (12 oz beer=5 oz. wine= 1 1/2 oz distilled spirits) per day (and if 100 or 151 proof, it's essentially 2 drinks in one), no more than 14 per week and never more than 4 per occasion. If you need help cutting back/stopping, there are many programs that can help. Talk to your PCP. ...Read more

Talc: This has been known to cause a serious condition called pulmonary fibrosis which can lead to progressive decline in lung function and can even be fatal. The good news is that you have to inhale lots of talc over long periods of time. Use judiciously for areas of localized irritated skin for short periods of time. ...Read more
Soda: The research on soda is generally supportive of the idea that soda is not good for you. Even a can of soda a day, because of the volume of sugar, or other chemicals (non-sugar substitutes) is not healthy. Drinking water with flavors, other additives to water is generally a better alternative to soda. I won't even get into what coca cola does to rust.... ...Read more
How much water do you need to drink if you are on lithium carb? And is it possible to drink too much?
Moderation: First & foremost, you and your prescriber should discuss fluid management and diet at length. It's important to stay hydrated, eat a normal amount of salt in your diet, and avoid overheating and dehydration. You should also have regular lab tests while taking lithium. Lithium is unusual compared to most medications because it is processed by the kidneys, which control our fluid balance. ...Read more
What do you do if people say your precious preemie is so little when you work so hard to help him grow? Crushed
Dont be crushed.: People do not know what you have been through and how small your baby initially was. It is natural that people describe them as tiny as they really are smaller then a full term baby. To you the baby is "huge" compared to what he or she was at birth, so you have a point of reference, other people do not. I am sure they all mean well. The only important fact is how joyful it is to be home with him. ...Read more
Probably not: Sneezing is a normal reflex and very common from infancy to old age. In general, sneezing is not associated with severe complications.

Nothing, really.: There's no "antidote" for caffeine. You just have to let it work out of your system, which can take some time depending on how much you drank. May just be a pretty sleepless night. In the future, stop drinking caffeinated beverages several hours before you figure you'll want to go to sleep. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
