Q: 

My four year old daughter had Chicken Pox in Dec last year - she only had it very mild....?

A: Well saying this i can Chicken Pox two times. Which is very rare. If She had only a few spots before then maybe its possible to get it again. I would see the doctor incase again. Better be safe then sorry. I''ve only known one kid to get them twice and it was in the same circumstances, a very mild dose and then the full blown thing a few months later. getting chicken pox again is rare but it does happen. take her to the docs to make sure and also you can find a lot of information on the nhs direct web site. She could indeed have the pox again, as some people don''t become immune as quickly as other people do. I had the chicken pox three times. Hi yes probably chicken pox again, I have had it 3 times, so has my partner. Not everyone feels...


Q: 

What is the best way to treat mild winter depression.?

A: I have two suggestions. 1. buy a full Spectrum light for the room you spend most of your time in. 2. In Crystal healing; Carrying an oregon sunstone is supposed to be beneficial. You should be able to get some sunstone econimically at metaphysical or crystal stores, or on eBay. I think the "Ellensburg Mineral Mystical N More" eBay store has sunstone. I know the person who runs the store. She also has lots of other crystals like Boji stones, Moldavite, Quartz crystals, Chaorite, EllensburgNlue Agates, and much more. eat goji berries!! take two shots of brandy & listen to soft music. SAD light boxes. I was sceptical but they really are quite amazingly effective sometimes. Keeping warm but not overdoing the central heating, and getting lots of exercise. Also making sure you eat...


Q: 

Is Escitalopram "Overkill" for mild Depression ?

A: Lexapro received very high ratings for treating anxiety and depression. It is an SSRI medication. If you are on the lowest dose available and it controls your depression, you may be able to take it only temporarily. It''s important to also seek some type of therapy for depression. It will help you avoid certain triggers that can set off bouts of depression. Counseling along with the Lexapro may be a good way for you to go. It''s really up to you and your doctor to assess if this medication is too strong for you. Good luck and hope your mild depression doesn''t last too long. It would also help getting in to certain activities and exercising regularly if you can. This will help reboot your "feel good" endorphines. Believe it or...

Q: 

Is It Safe To Take A Low dose Of Aspirin While Pregnant?

A: Talk to your doctor, but generally aspirin is not safe to use for pain management in pregnancy.

Q: 

I wake up feeling hot without a fever. I take 10 mg. prednisone for PMR. The feeling takes a while to go away even after I take my daily dose. Does anyone else have this or have an idea why it is happening?

A: Ms. Blundell, Your case is interesting but there is missing information to fully advise you. First, are you through menopause? If not, the prednisone may effect your symptoms. Are you sure you still have PMR? It USUALLY has a shorter course than 10 years and although Prednisone is the mainstay of treatment, variable doses is not the USUAL treatment route, either. Fluctuating prednisone treatment can and will cause hot flashes or transient temperature sensations without fever. It can also play havoc with your Diabetes Mellitus. And just for clarification: You are either diabetic or not diabetic. It''s a medical condition that currently you are controlling with diet, but you are diabetic. Diabetes is classified as Type I (Insulin resistant) or Type II (non-insulin...
