This may be one of the side effects of Loratidine because it dries the nasal mucosa making it friable and easily damaged during sneezing causing bleeding. The blood shot eyes may be related to the allergy she is having. If she has fever or increased bleeding there may be another cause like a Viral fever which can also cause this picture. You may let her try steam inhalation which will hydrate the mucosa and prevent it from drying. Be careful while doing this and avoid keeping her face close to the steam. You may refer back to your Paediatrician if this does not subside.

My 4 year old seems to have a cold. I don t know if it s allergies but it seems more a cold. Stuffy nose, and a cough, esp in the middle of the night. The past 2 days I ve noticed dried blood in his nose. Yesterday I took him to the dr with pink eye. Tonight he had a real bloody nose. Does this seem like a cold. Should I worry about the bloody nose?

Hi, I have noticed a strong scent of ammonia, along with a sporadically bloody nose when I blow it (I have year-round allergies). My husband can not smell it. Please help! The scent seems stronger today and this has been occurring for a few weeks now.

I have been having these reddish brown patches on my feet especially my ankles for the last three years and seem to become worse, itchy and sensitive. My dermatologist says that it is Schamberg s disease and has prescribed some Kojic acid cream and an emollient. This did not help much and I was anyway using petroleum jelly to keep these areas moist. I started using fluticasone ointment occasionally which reduced the itching and sensitivity but my patches are still there and a few more have cropped up. I have read about studies with pentoxifylline for this disease and I would like to know, if I can start taking this medication, for how long and any precautions needed and will I be able to get rid of these patches? Thanks . By the way, my father also had this problem and by the time he was in his 70s his entire feet were discolored upto his shins.

Yesterday, I was diagnosed with an ear infection in both ears, bronchitious, and sinus infection. My ears are absolutely killing me, I have hearing loss, extreme pressure like there is a bubble in my ears, I cannot get relief with z-pack, flonase, inhaler, and ib. The pain is extreme. What can I do to get my ears to drain so I can hear again. I cannot sleep more than 2 hours at a time the pain wakes me out of a sleep. Please advise.
