My daughter is 20 years old. In the early hours of Saturday morning, she complained of getting hot and cold fever. She was itchy and had a severe neck and back ache. She was taken to a 24 hour casualty hospital. The GP took blood to test for German measles. This was found to be negative. Her white blood count was low, signifying a viral infection. She has been taking Purbac, an antibiotic for her skin. In hospital they put up a drip of Cortizone, Buscopan. Perfalgan, Rayson and Zofran. She was released from hospital a couple of hours later. I filled the perscription for tenston, xefo, celestamine and Robaxin and administered this to her. At 10.30pm on Saturday night, she woke us up complaining of extreme itchiness. I took her back to hospital. another drip was put up with Aterax, Maxolon and Phenergan as she was also complaining of stomach ache. Again she was released, only to be readmitted later that night. The GP did urine tests. She tested negatively for Malaria as she had been in a Malaria area the previous week. She was released with the GP saying that she could have been admitted originally with flu type symtoms (sore back, neck) and then the medicine after could have caused an allergic reaction. After a bad nights rest, she woke up with raised red welts on her face, but nothing on her torso. Could this be an allergic reaction to all the medicine or/and the high dose of sulpher in the Purbac or is this Urticaria? Your advice would be appreciated.

Hi,My age is 28 years and i was diagnosed with male pattern baldness around 3 yrs ago. The doctor told me that it is because of hereditary reasons and has been aggravated due to change of water as i had shifted to Bangalore around 5 yrs back. I also took a treatment for about an year after during which my hair loss stopped.But i suppose this is an irreversible process and in order to avoid any hair loss in future:
1. i want to know that apart from a proper diet, what else i can do for this?
2. I suppose the water here in Bangalore is very hard, but i have been using this water for almost 5 years now, so is my scalp and hair not used to it by now? Is using this water to wash my hair still a danger now also ? Would it be advisable to shift to soft/packaged drinking water for washing hair? I used it for last 2 weeks and noticed that hair becomes soft but totally flat, now my doubt is that again a "change of water" from hard (which i am used to) to soft might lead to hair loss.

3. I might shift from Bangalore to a new place in future, what is the best way to save my hair from thinning and any further hair loss?
