Hi, I got my wisdom teeth out a week ago today. I had dry sockets and was in a lot of pain. Yesterday I began feeling like myself again but woke up not really having a voice and I was frequently coughing...I have been coughing for the past day or two and it really hurts in my throat . It s not a very active cough...a little bit of mucus but not much. Am I just getting sick? Is this normal? And what do you do for a painful cough? Thanks!
A dry socket is a complication of surgical removal of wisdom tooth. A dentist should be consulted and a sedative packing should be kept in the socket which should be replaced regularly. Use warm saline gargle 3-4 times daily for better healing. Your cough could be due to a infection of the respiratory tract and not due to the wisdom tooth removal.
There is no corelation between ur toth extraction and the new problem that u are facing now. It seems that u are suffering from a sore throat. Start with warm saline gargles alongwith betadine gargles 3-4 times a day. Visit ur physician and take a course of antibiotics. Also make sure that ur socket of extracted tooth is healing well.

Hello Doctor, I had a fall day before yesterday. Have a wound on my knee and elbow. I used betadine solution and ointment. Now I want to clean the wound which has all the betadine residue. I have savlon but the expiry date mentioned on it is June 2013. Can I use it to just clean the wound.
age-28,ht-5ft 5,wt-55, I am smoking for last 2 years . I usually smoke at-most 10 cigrate in a day but not a regular smoker. From last 7 days I felt pain on my right side of my throat. I consulted a ENT specialist yesterday and asked her is it symptoms of throat cancer,she said it is the reversible stage of cancer and prescribed only Betadine Gagelling without other medicine . Is it really cancer symptom? I think it is only due to throat infection,am I right?
Hi I'm 28 and 16 weeks pregnant and its my first baby. I usually get constipated very easily and in pregnancy it has worsen. I'm using Isphagul (pure psyllium husk) mixed in water and now i'm having a bowel movement every alternative day. That's some how fine, but now I have a severe pain while passing stools and sometimes it bleeds. Its painful for the next 3 to 4 hours and then the pain disappears but the pain is too much and I cant bear. Hence I started using Xyloproct and Betadine ointments in that affected area. Is it good to use these ointments during pregnancy? If not please suggest some alternative and help.

Hi a few weeks ago the outside of my vagina was really itchy, so I scratched it and then I noticed there was some blood. So I thought I burst a spot or something. Now that area looks like a blister but without the bubble on top it’s the same...
