Can an allergist test for sensitivity to lidocaine?

I had a reaction to Lidocaine at a dentist visit and then during a mole removal. My doctor had me tested at an allergist. I was tested with diluted pure lidocaine and found to be allergic. You can be tested but according to my allergist it has to be on the pure drug, not a name brand because they contain other substances.

Allergy to Local anesthetics is extremely rare. Allergic reactions often present as rash and hives, but can be serious causing airway problems including swelling of the throat, tongue, and spasm of the airways of the lungs leading to wheezing and shortness of breath. Cardiovascular collapse and death are the worst senario.

It is very common for people who have a "reaction" from local anesthesia in the dentist office to mistake the reaction for a lidocaine or novocaine allergy when in fact the reaction is due to epinephrine(adrenalin) which these anesthetics often include, designed to decrease bleeding and prolong the length of anesthesia. The reaction to epinephrine is caused by it's absorption into the bloodstream. The reactions commonly associated with this include anxiety, rapid heart beat, palpitations, changes in blood pressure, and shortness of breath.

Local anesthetics may also contain preservatives which may cause reactions as well.

Testing for lidocaine allergy can be done. Contact an allergist.

How can you treat arthritis pain?

Arthritis is not curable at this stage. However, there are things that can help such as dietary changes. You might also want to try some herbal remedies or homeopathic remedies for natural pain relief. The major considerations are diet and lifestyle

non phamcological treatment is:

  1. dietary changes
  2. rest
  3. exercise
  4. heat and cold
  5. splits
  6. homeopathic remedies
  7. herbal remedies

pharmacological treatment is:

  1. non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs
  2. low dose corticosteroids
  3. disease modifying anti rheumatic drugs
  4. immune suppression

There is no quick and simple way to treat arthritis using alternative methods, because it's a complicated problem. To simplify it, there are two things that need to be done.

1) Measures to reduce pain and inflammation. This is probably what you'll read the most about if you do searches online for alternative treatments. This is going to involve anti-inflammatory suppleents like fish oil, curcumin, and quercitin to name some very common one. There are many anti-inflammatory supplements, just listing them all would take some work. These by themself are not the cure for arthritis, but it makes sense to include them.

Also, if you can take a natural anti-inflammatory instead of aspirin or a NSAID, then stay away from the drugs.

2) In addition to just taking an anti-inflammatory you want to to do some work investigating the cause of arthritis.

Unfortunately this takes some work.

Major considerations are diet and lifestyle. Toxicty (some people have huge improvements after going through detoxification programs), and any kind of stress on the body. Also gastro-intestinal issues are a big link. What happens is people have something called "leaky gut" where large food particles and microbes that are not supposed to pass through the gut lining do. This causes inflammation through the entire body, and effects some people in the joints. So often people with arthritis need to start taking supplements and working to improve health in other areas and not just do things for the joint.

The joints in where you feel the symptom of a problem, but the cause runs much deeper.

A highly recommend book is "Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide to Arthritis," which can be bought pretty cheaply off Amazon, or BarnesandNoble.

Alternatively try to borrow it from your local library.If they do not have it they may get it in for you.

How much amoxicillin do i give my 40 pound dog?

Never never give medication to your dog at home without a Veterinarian being involved. You could cause much more harm than good and even possibly death. Your dog should be examined by your Veterinarian first. The Vet will prescribe the correct antibiotic, if needed, and the correct dosage for the condition the Vet is treating your dog for. Why on earth would you want to give amoxicillin to your dog without having him or her checked out by your Vet first?? Take your dog to your Vet.

Can I take expired amoxicillin pills?

Studies show that expired drugs may lose some of their potency over time, from as little as 5% or less to 50% or more (though usually much less than the latter). Even 10 years after the "expiration date," most drugs have a good deal of their original potency. If your life does not depend on an expired drug - such as that for headache, hay fever, or menstrual cramps - take it and see what happens. One of the largest studies ever conducted that supports the above points about "expired drug" labeling was done by the U.S. military 15 years ago, according to a feature story in the Wall Street Journal (March 29, 2000), reported by Laurie P. Cohen. Here are a couple of resources as well: https://www.health.harvard.edu/fhg/updates/update1103a.shtml http://www.baliadvertiser.biz/articles/paradise/2006/expired_drugs.html

What is the shelf life of amoxicillin?

As an ex pharmacy tech...amoxicillin is one of the fast movers in the pharmacy it's quite difficult to check it's shelf life but we normally try to keep anti bi for up to one year , 2 years for the most but if it's mixed 10 days ..and it should be on the shelf THROW OUT your amoxicillin! For two reasons: ALL antibiotics should be taken until the bottle is empty. If there are some left over, whoever took it 4 years ago, didn't finish it, which can mess up your immune system. PLUS, if you take it now even if it were good, you won't get the full dose. AND it's NOT good! P.S. To dispose of old pills, DO NOT FLUSH THEM or just throw them out: check with your municipality about local medication disposal so you can keep the chemicals out of the general water supply and/or food chain. Many recycling centers have dedicated collection days. Shelf life is generally one year.D Studies show that expired drugs may lose some of their potency over time, from as little as 5% or less to 50% or more (though usually much less than the latter).

Does amoxicillin cause vaginal yeast infections?

Theoretically, any antibiotic can cause a yeast infection. Antibiotics assist the body in eliminating infections caused by bacteria (not viruses or funguses i.e. yeast). The vagina is normally full of bacteria. These bacteria live in harmony with each other and are normally harmless. Their presence keeps other bacteria or fungus from running rampant. When a woman takes an antibiotic for an infection elsewhere in the body the antibiotic affects all bacteria in that woman. Due to this affect the vaginal balance of bacteria is lowered, thus allowing for yeast to over grow. This overgrowth is called a yeast infection. The yeast infection can be cured by returning the vaginal environment back to its "normal" state. To cure this you must take an antifungal agent by mouth, vaginal suppository or cream. Some feel that eating 6-8 oz of yogurt daily while taking antibiotic therapy may help to reduce the potential for these type of opportunistic infections to occur.

How many days after surgery should doctor remove stitches?

Surgical sutures or stitches are usually removed 7-14 days after surgery.

Removal of stitches should be done ONLY by a physician or physician assistant after examination and under sterile comditions in order to avoid complications including opening of the wound, infections, and even life threatening conditions. The physician will evaluate the stitches and surgical wound to determine whether it has healed sufficiently that if the sutures are removed the wound will not open. Stitches are usually snipped with small suture scissors and pulled out with forceps under standard surgical sterile conditions. In areas of high skin stress, like the knee, shoulder, elbow or ankle, and thus, typically after after orthopedic surgery, the surgeon may choose to remove surgical sutures longer than 14-21 days after surgery.
