Home Made Butt Paste Recipes (With Maalox) for Severe Rash~

When my daughter was little, the Dr recommended some concoction for her frequent outbreaks of horrid (bleeding open sores..the whole bit) diaper area rash. Often it was yeast involved as well. It would change from one diaper change to the next. We would do as much cloth diapering as we could when at home, etc and that helped a ton (water only paper towel wipes as well). But I do not remember what the recipe for the Maalox included concoction was and a friend is in need (My child is 16 now, so it was many years ago for me!). Anyone have a...

Pain Medication for Arthritis? (Dogs)

My dog is a 10 yr old collie mix (we think). He is a bit overweight. Supposed to be 50-55 lbs, is actually more like 60-65 lbs. He was recently (Nov 2007) diagnosed w arthritis and prescribed Glucosamine w Chondritin and also 50 mg Deramaxx (deracoxib) for the pain. He was having trouble walking up/down stairs. We saw an initial improvement but then he started to get worse again, so I moved him to level 2 of the Glucosamine/Chondritin. He showed no improvement on the higher dose. We then ran out of the Deramaxx. Naturally he became crankier...

How to soothe indigestion during pregnancy?

I am 34 weeks and have had a lot of indigestion. I have been using Maalox but it hasn't been working all that much anymore. I have been drinking sprites which used to work but sometimes it doesn't. Does anyone have an remedies? I usually drink water through the day and a little at night. I will even get hearburn when I eat oatmeal so I don't know what to do at this point. I never really had these problems with the first child but this second one has given me so many issues.

Shingles on Breast

I met with my primary physician this morning who promptly got me an appointment with her preferred dermantoligist this afternoon. But while I'm waiting I thought I would ask if anyone has ever had shingles on their breast. Thursday night I noticed that my left breast was quite itchy. I was shocked later that night to find I had a crescent shaped rash on the left side of my left breast. I figured it must be some sort of dermatitist and decided to wait over the weekend. The itching is not as intense but now I have the sensation of my...

4 1/2 Month Old Has Been Constipated Since Birth, Tried Just About Everything!

My son has had trouble w/ bowel movements since birth. I've been supplementing with formula since his first week (since my milk never fully came in). On his pediatrician's advice, we've tried milk-based formula, soy, apple juice, pear juice, milk of magnesium, nothing seems to help! Since we changed to soy last week, (again, on the Ped's advice) he's going more frequently, but his BM's are more painful now and even causing a little bleeding. He did really well on Good Start Natural Cultures for a while, then he started getting really...

Cough Drops

Does anyone have any medical information about the use of cough drops? Has anyone's Pediatrician told them about any particular dangers of using for toddlers (other than choking). My son is 2 1/2 yrs old and has a very red, sore throat. (He's been tested for flu and strep throat and both are negative...the Pediatrician says he has a virus that needs to run its course.) Yesterday, my hubby gave him a cough drop -- he sucked on it for about 2 minutes and spit it out. Today, my son is asking for another cough drop. The cough drop...

Causes of Diarrhea

My son just turned one this month. He's awesome, walking and chatting away. However, we are going on 4 days of diarrhea. My poor kid. It started Saturday and shows no signs of letting up. I called his Ped. but since he does not have a fever, is not vomiting, and still has an appatite they said there is really nothing they can do it just has to run it coarse. I don't know what's causing it. Maybe he picked up a bacteria, maybe he's got some back teeth coming in, I dont' know. I've got him on a very bland diet and keeping him hydrated...

Hand Foot and Mouth- Yowza!

Hi- looking for some advice. My poor 3 year old son has Hand Foot and Mouth Disease. Realized it Tuesday night and got him into the doctor on Wednesday. He is totally miserable, crying a lot (up hourly at night) and I feel so helpless. We're giving him ibuprofen (5 ML based on age/weight) every 6 hours or so but he is in so much pain. They suggested giving him a tsp of liquid Maalox every four hours to help coat the throat/mouth but that's been impossible to do. I don't know what I'm looking for exactly- do we just give him popsicles and...

Daughter with Recent High Fevers Has Fever Sores in Mouth Now.

Hi everyone. During this past week, my 3 1/2 year old daughter had a fever ranging from 100 to 104.1. We took her to the doctor last Wednesday and she was diagnosed with walking pneumonia and prescribed an antibiotic (Augmentin). The doctor advised us to bring her back into the office so she can check her lung and it was clear yesterday. I am concerned about the fever sores in her mouth. She isn't eating any solid foods because she says her mouth hurts. Thank God she is drinking liquids so I don't have to worry about her dehydrating. The...

Severe Diaper Rash During Flu

My son who is 15 months old has had the flu for about 4 or 5 days now and has awful and I mean really awful diaper rash from all the diarrea he has had. What can I do to help clear it up and make it less painful. I am using just a spray bottle of warm water and paper towels to clean his bottom & was putting on generic Desitin but that doesn't seem to be helping. Any advice would be appreciate as we are both miserable and the doctor can't see us until next week.

Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease

My 2 1/2 year old has come down with Hand Foot & Mouth Disease (similar to chickenpox but not itchy). Most likely picked it up from daycare. The doctor said to only give him Motrin or Tylenol for pain. Since it is a virus, there are no antibotics to give him. I bought Aveeno soothing bath and some Aveen cream to make him feel comfortable. Has anyone else's children has the same disease?? Doctor said this is common in young children and goes away in 10 days.

Shangles

I have been diagnosed with shingles by 3 different doctors but I am still not convinced that I have them. My rash, which is next to my armpit near the breast. is very itchy, I have had this rash now for over 4 weeks! I do sometimes feel a burning sensation and soreness, like I over did it at the gym, on my arm, shoulder and breast area around the rash. I am on an antiviral medication now for the 4th day and am still itching (I was put on the meds. after I had the rash for 4 weeks). Anyone ever had shingles and can share what it was like...

15 Month Old with Strep Throat

My 15 month old daughter was diagnosed with strep throat this past Friday. She was given a shot of antibiotic Friday afternoon. As of this morning, she is still completely miserable. I have never had strep throat before and she hasn't either so I don't know what to expect as far as how long it takes to start feeling better. Does anyone out there know about when they begin to feel better or if I should be concerned that there is still a problem?

Trouble with Thrush

Has anyone struggled with thrush not clearing up? I am breastfeeding and have been treating thrush for myself and my son for 2 weeks with Nystatin (him) and Lotrimin (me). Unfortunately, at the doctor today I found out that he still has thrush. Now he has a prescription for Diflucan. I am checking with my doctor to see if I should continue with Lotrimin or if she will recommend something else. I am hoping this will knock it out. However, I am getting really paranoid about where thrush is lurking! I know I need to boil my breast pump...

Vomiting with Strep

I posted a question about 3 weeks ago now about my child having strep. Well 2 weeks later she ended up with Strep again. The first sign was vomiting. She didn't vomit when she had it two weeks ago but this time she vomits everyday. Its usually at night after she has gone to bed, she wakes and vomits in her crib. She has been vomiting every day, usually once for 6 days now. Can anyone else out there tell me if their child vomited that long after being put on an antibiotic? One more thing, she saw the pediatrician Saturday and was put...
