Avatar m tn My 8 year old beagle developed what appears to be a post nasal drip, where she coughs and gags. Shortly after, chronic sneezing with mucus discharge started. It's daily. Mostly in AM and PM. Our vet prescribed Benedryl which hasn't really helped. Does anyone know of a homeopathic solution?
Avatar n tn has allergies and she walked in the examination room and started sneezing sneezing sneezing and holding up her hands infront of her face infront of me.
Avatar f tn I have used a tissue paper for sneezing and i found that's some contamination stuff on the paper which i used before.. Worry about any infectious (germs, bacterial, virus, especially HIV) could be get from the tissue paper into my nose or mouth? I not sure what is the contamination, maybe it come from my mouth or other thing has polluted the tissue paper.
Avatar f tn Vitamin C hasn't been proven to prevent colds so the fruit and multivitamin aren't necessarily of value in prevention. People cough on your food, lips and door knobs so colds are to be expected at any time but washing your hands with warm water and soap can prevent a lot of colds. Cold water and soap does nothing to the germs and viruses, btw.
Avatar f tn Some people will show no signs of illness, but in fact can be carriers of virus and bacteria germs. The most impotant thing to avoid spreading germs is to observe hygiene measures (washing hands). We cannot avoid coming into contact with bugs, so if your nanny has no other symptoms like coughing and sneezing and feels fine, then I think it would be OK. But if you are concerned then follow your gut instincts and wait until she has completed the full course of the antibiotics.
Avatar f tn for the past month I had cold like symptoms including cough, runny nose, sneezing. But I also have a new partner & I performed oral sex & kissed him. My throat has red bumps on the back & a red bump on my uvula. Also, on the roof of my mouth there is a small area that has a little redness & hurts when i suck on anything. At night when Iā€™m sleeping I wake up from my throat being sore & having to blow my nose.
Avatar n tn Nevertheless if your kitty does have a kitty cold that includes heavy sneezing, drippy nose and eyes this will most likely clear up on it's own, generally within 1-2 weeks. As long as kitty is eating, dinking and pottying (urinating) then there isn't really any concerns. If kitty is lethargic and not eating/drinking call your vet ASAP to get more information on what to do. Once again look to see if vaccines are due because often that's the issue.
Avatar f tn If you are going to catch anything by a flu shot it would have already happened it takes seven to ten days to catch it and just was your hands I'm in nursing school and you catch colds by touching something with germs on it and then your mouth nose or eyes so keep you hands washed

Avatar m tn I had been getting really bad GERD symptom- coughing, wheezing, hotness of mouth but time of proper sleeping- not lying down before hand generally. I also have had powerful sneezing particularly at night but not just then also morning sometimes. I realised I had been drinking expired off milk- I noticed some off taste but because I was eating it with cocoa- I did realise the milk was- 4 days past used-by date.
Avatar n tn An infection from a tooth extraction can go straight into your maxillary sinuses. Go to a doctor and get some antibiotics. If that doesn't work, cursor the blue "friggy" and get the instructions for the Sinus Flush on my journal. It is slightly risky--you have to bend over in the shower--but it will wash all the infected mucus out of your sinuses and restore them to normal function, and your body will get rid of any straggling germs.
Avatar n tn If the child had an intestinal virus or bacteria, it would have to go quite the circuitous route to get into your your digestive tract, because airborne germs applies more to sneezing and coughing from colds.
1422823 tn?1287682880 Can this sneezing do any damage? I am also off all my pain meds so does anyone know if it is too soon to take some kind of cold medicine?
Avatar n tn After a few days, both cats became sick, sneezing, watery eyes, discharge. The kitten was first, so I got him an antibiotic and he's fine now. But my other cat became very ill within a couple of days, and she has been in the emergency animal hospital all weekend and is now staying at the vets. She has a high fever that goes up and down, very congested and not eating. This has gone on for five days. Is this a typical URI?
Avatar n tn I've had wet cough for the past 3 days as of now, and I just started to have a really bad runny nose this morning. I also started sneezing ALOT. Now it kind of hurts when I sneeze. So I went home at about 12:00 and I got my temperature taken. It was 104.5, i've read in kids thats ok but adults that isnt, and I'm almost 15 (in november). So I just went to bed and I put a cool cloth on my head and I also took tylenol. My fever was 104.5 a few hours ago now its down to about 101.5.
Avatar f tn We catch colds and flu when our immune system is lowered and we have been exposed to the airborne virus by people coughing and sneezing. Germs are also passed by they hands and if the virus is on your hands and you touch your eyes, you will have contaminated yourself by that way too. Drink plenty of juices and water, honey with fresh lemon juice as a hot drink is soothing for a sore throat.
676912 tn?1332816151 But basically OCD is characterized by obsessive thoughts or actions that become intrusive to the point that it becomes a burden in our lives. I did see that you mentioned germs in your mood section. Is this something you worry about on a frequent basis? In any event, OCD is very treatable and really does require professional help in most cases. There are cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT) that can be learned and there are also very good effective medications available.
Avatar n tn my wife is about to be 43 in about one month and commutes between new york city and warwick, ny and rides for about one and a half hours each way with lots of people constantly coughing and sneezing. i anxiously await your answer and i thank you for being there to help.
141598 tn?1355675363 For that reason, it is important that you wash your hands after coughing or sneezing to avoid passing on the virus. The length of time that cold or flu germs can survive outside the body on an environmental surface, such as a doorknob, varies greatly. But the suspected range is from a few seconds to 48 hours ā€” depending on the specific virus and the type of surface. In mucus can be upwards to 17 days. Flu viruses tend to live longer on surfaces than cold viruses do.

Avatar f tn She is so cranky, she is not running a fever, just sneezing, some nasal drainage and sometimes she sounds stuffy. Besides tylenol any suggestions or home rememdies to help this along. And anything i should be looking for that mite need medical attention. I also have a cold and nasal drainaged.
Avatar n tn Generally healthy people do not fall ill to pneumonia. Many viruses and bacteria can cause infectious pneumonia. When certain germs cause pneumonia, it can be very contagious. An example of this is when it is caused by the bacteria streptococcus pneumonia. This is often seen as an outbreak in young healthy military recruits living in the same barracks. Pneumonia caused by a fungus or an opportunistic infection, which effects people with AIDS, it is not contagious.
Avatar n tn Also, I now suffer from post-nasal drip and sneezing attacks although that may just be an allergy. The mucous is very dry, stringy and clumps together...amount is usually 1/4 teaspoon. I dont have any chest pain or tigtening, but feel less energetic. I'm 53, great shape, 178 lbs, take no medications, dont smoke/drink. At wits end as I know something isnt right....could this be fungal????
Avatar m tn Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people. Take everyday actions to stay healthy. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread that way. Stay home if you get sick.
Avatar n tn Every time i seem to sleep over a friends house I end up ill for the next few days, with a cold, blocked nose, sneezing etc. I generally end up sleeping on the couch or something similar. Any idea of why this is? and how to prevent it in future?
209987 tn?1451939065 Without medication the ear will not be able to heal-just washing it will unfortunately not kill the germs/bugs that are causing the mal-odor, the debris, and the itching and they may just get worse. The sneezing may be related if she has allergies and that is more of a reason she needs to see a vet. Unfortunately over the counter stuff just works to prevent infections by keeping the ears clean, they don't kill off bad things that get into the ears.
Avatar f tn She doesn't have a fever, she just has a runny nose, kind of stuffed up, a little cough once in awhile and sneezing. Should I give her baby Tylenol? I'm a new mom and I don't know what to do!!
Avatar m tn I have never known myself to have allergies to anything in the past, but lately I have been experiencing some seasonal allergies; nothing severe, just stuffy head congestion and sneezing during spring for the past two years. I am 26 and have lived in the pacific NW my whole life. My girlfriend and I made sangria with red wine (merlot). When we drank it I had that annoying itch somewhere between my throat and ear.
Avatar n tn tingling in right nostril accompanied by stuffiness sneezing sniffing and headache. could i be getting sick? like a cold?
