Why after 4 years post thyroidectomy have you begun to experience consistent sore throats just around the area of removal It is not allergy related and lasts for months at a time?

Do you mean swollen and tight? I am 2 years post thyroidectomy and have been told by an endocrinologist that PT's have a heightened sensitivity in the thyroid area which during times of stress gives us this feeling.

Is a Vicodin allergy related to a penicillin allergy?
No, they are different medications -- vicodin is a narcotic pain killer and penicillin is an anti-biotic. An allergy to vicodin is unreleated to an allergy to penicillin. However, do not use Vicodin if you are allergic to acetaminophen (Tylenol) or hydrocodone. You should consult with your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions regarding specific allergies to medications.
Asked in Animal Life
Can animals have peanut allergies?
Animals are not usually allergic to food, outside of skin allergies. Although, some foods may actually be toxic to them. That is not the same as an allergy. When scientist are using animals to do allergy research, they will actually have to artificially create the allergy. There is an article about this at the related link below.

Is the peanut allergy very common?
Reliable peanut allergy statistics are not that easy to come by. There is a lot of available research on food allergies in general but not too many studies have been done on peanut allergy alone. From 2004 to 2006, there were an average of 9,537 hospital discharges per year with a diagnosis related to food allergy among children 0 to 17 years.

Allergy to Augmentin means allergy to all penicillin based medications?
Not necessarily. Firstly, Augmentin is a combination of two different medicines: amoxicillin, which is related to penicillin, and clavulanate, which is not. You could conceivably be allergic to either one. Secondly, even if you have a reaction to amoxicillin, it might not necessarily be related to the penicillin-like part of the molecule. Or it could be a different type of reaction to amoxicillin, which has nothing to do with allergy. Fortunately, penicillin is one of the few medications for which there is an allergy test. I'd suggest you talk to a board certified allergist to discuss the details.

Can you be allergic to Dachshunds if you have COPD?
Depends on the person. You can have a dog allergy but no COPD, COPD but no dog allergy, or COPD and dog allergy. I recommend you do an allergy test to see if you are allergic to dogs. If it comes positive, you can still have certain breeds of hypoallergenic dogs. I added a link for you in the related links section with an article that explains what makes a dog hypoallergenic and lists breeds you could consider (and avoid!) if you have a dog allergy. Also, if you do have one, you should take to your doctor before making a decision on whether or not to get a dog.
