Question: I have a detached retina in my right eye. I have a work release because the doctor says it is only detached in a few minor places now. I irrigate my nose with XXXXXXX med. I have a cold or flu or something now. Does the XXXXXXX med endanger my retina or anything? How about blowing my nose?
I need to say that I live in the California desert where the plants are pollinating.
Fall in more like spring here and you actually plant lowers in the fall and the flowers can't grow in the very hot summer. I have extreme allergies to plants and I think that my condition is close to someone living in a northern state in springtime. If you are considering the season in your answer, you should know about this part.
I am sorry. I forgot to say I have been very nearsighted since age 9, about 50 years. I understand that's relevant.
I should also say that I have been irrigating my nose with the XXXXXXX Med frequently.
Sometimes 2-3 times in a row and sometimes every 20 minutes. I am afraid of having to blow my nose or sneeze. thank you!!!

Dear XXXXXXX,
thanks for sending your query to us.
These allergies you are talking about lead to a lot of sneezing and blowing of nose.This is what we want to avoid in such cases.
Detached retina should be tackled immeditely and we do not want to make those small patches big.
It has been your myopia than any thing else that has been responsible for detachment.
Get your detachment taken care of immediately.
Take medication to control sneezing and do not blow nose.
Any problem please do get back to me immediately.

I still have some flonase I tapered off it the end of Oct and used only twice this month.
Should I go back the flonase (I squirted some in my nose just after I got your message)? or get some Claritin?

Dear XXXXXXX,
thanks for getting back to us.
flonase is a steroid and claritin is non steroid,but that is immaterial.Any of these which gives you good relief is good enough for us.
We do not want sneezing and blowing of nose,and both will take care of that.
take care.

My son has a raised rash on the backs of each hand and elbows, which he has had since yesterday. He has had a similar rash many times before when playing in grass. He has been playing soccer on grass turf all week. My husband gave him one loratadine (active ingredient - 10 mg) tablet 2 hours ago because he could not find benedryl (diphenhydramine hydrochloride) at the time. I have the benedryl, can he take some now (2-4 tablets - 12.5 mg). If yes, how much? If no, when can he take benedryl.

Hi. My Daughter has a cough and rash on her forehead (tiny bumps) no fever, no itch no pain no other symptoms. Plays well, eats well and sleeps well. She has been taking Claritin for spring allergies and started on mucinex yesterday to keep her cough loose. I m puzzled by the tiny bumps on her forehead. The community pool just opened this past week so could it be the pool water?
