Which of the following drugs is classified as a topical steriod?
Albuterol (ventolin, Proventil) Salmeterol (Serevent) Fluocinolone (Synalar) Prednisone (Deltasone)
Asked by Sunny Payne 6 months ago.
Marie, These details could have been researched personally using your library or the internet. I presume that this method involves less work for you. Your answer should be Fluocinolone (Synalar) which is a topical steroid. Prednisone (Deltasone) is a Corticosteroid, which is a medication that is chemically similar to natural steroids and duplicates their actions. Salmeterol (Serevent) is a long-acting beta2-adrenergic receptor agonist drug that is currently prescribed for the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Albuterol (ventolin, Proventil) is a bronchodilator used for asthma and emphysema and other lung conditions.

Hello, Perhaps the doctor is swayed by your asthma, because asthma and the "atopic" (pronounced eh - TOPP'' - ikk), type of eczema tend to go together. I agree that eczema of whatever type, is normally itchy and in patches, and that no itching brings the diagnosis into question. I would also have expected any of the cortisone creams, (hydrocortisone, betnovate, synalar etc.), to help an eczematous rash. We don't have enough information to offer an alternative diagnosis. One important diagnostic feature of eczema is that it is "symmetrical," that is to say that the right half of your body should be a mirror-image of the left half of your body, - like, (rash on right elbow) = (rash on left elbow). If the rash is asymmetrical in your case, - just on one side of your body, - then that makes it much more likely that there is some localized cause for it. Little bumps that you can feel, are usually described as "papules" in medical jargon. You sound to have a widespread dry papular rash, and there are plenty of different ones of those. If the rash is symmetrical, then looking further into the exact areas affected is still very helpful in diagnosis? Plus, does it affect your scalp? It would be useful to know which parts of your skin are the dry-est, but for places like your hands and forearms I think you might consider getting some white cotton gloves, - pasteing your hands in Vaseline at bedtime, - and going to sleep in the cotton gloves. That's what I do. Also, I have some long cotton socks I have cut the toes off, - I also do my forearms and elbows with Vaseline, and put the cut-down socks on at bedtime, -- (the heel of the socks, goes over the point of my elbows). What some enquirers here do, is to take some digital pictures of their rash, post them on a picture site, and then post the link to them here. I hope this is of some help.

Alright guys, last Friday I woke up with a strange feeling in my left ear. It was as if my left ear went on an air plane and got pressurized. Holding my nose shut and blowing achieved nothing. I should mention here that I'm in Spain and not fluent in Spanish. I visited the pharmacy and they gave me drops "synalar ótico". After 4 days, nothing had changed. I put the drops in, I lay down for 5 minutes, and when I sit up again, I feel that it pours out. So I visited the clinic a few hours ago. The doctor took one look in my ear and said I have an ear infection. She prescribed: Ibuprofeno 600mg, Ciprofloxacino 500mg and Baycip Ótico The thing that worries me is that it still feels like most of the ear drop pours out after I sit up, as if something is blocking my ear. I don't know how to explain this in Spanish. But am I on the right medication? Is there anything else I should do? I have partial hearing loss on the left ear too and as a musician it's really slowing down my work Any help is appreciated, thanks guys Answered by Arnette Alexidor 6 months ago.
O.K. Southern USA-9:04 Eastern Standard time---ciprofloxacino, baycip otico are all proxacin, all in the same family. All are used to treat bacterial ear infections. Is in the fluoroquinolone drug class, listed as a second generation flouro. For treatment of infections caused by bacteria. Did physician take a swab to test for type of bacteria causing this problem if it is bacterial?? Pressure behind the ear drum or earache can be otitis externa meaning earache or otitis media which is inflammation of the middle ear. Having had this often, I know the feeling you are talking about. In otitis media tissues surround the eustachion tubes swell due to upper respiratory allergies or infection. The ear drum can become swollen with the fluid behind it and can cause lack of hearing as well as balance problems associated with ear infections. I am not a physician, but to me the drops are pouring out because the ear canal is blocked with wax or pus (ick) (a yellowish fluid) or you should lay down with the infected ear facing up, not on the pillow and give these drops a chance to work. As you just received the medication a few hours ago, I think you are not giving the medication that I hope is given by mouth time to work. As I said they are in the same family, with the exception of the Ibuprofeno 600mg which is simply ibuprofen bought over the counter under names as advil, etc. A very mild pain reliverer and analgesic. Somtimes and this has happened to my daughter, if there is excessive fluid, wax, pus(a yellowish fluid) behind the ear drum, the ear drum will rupture on it's own--nature's way of healing itself---you should see drainage of the above from that ear. I would continue on the medication, while I am wondering if it is strong enough, and wondering why she did not prescribe amoxicillin which is what my daughter always got and myself. Due to my problems, I would always have to go back for a check up to make sure all infection was cleared up. Also, prescribed for me is what is called a z pack, azirithromicin, will have to check spelling. I have not heard of the ciprofloxacino, but if you will hold on, I will call my pharmacist and get her recommendations. Back in a minute. O.K. she said ciprofluox--commonly prescribed for ear infections and should work. With drops, lay as I said above, she said you may be putting too many drops in. Lay with infected ear side up with no more than 2-3 drops in ear and lay atleast 30 minutes or more. Also, use cotton balls, not swabs, in ear, break off a tiny piece, twirl to make a cone just big enough to fit in ear canal, do not try to push too far, just enough to keep drops from coming back out. If you do not feel better in 2-3 days return to clinic. Must give meds time to work. Take all as directed. Drink plenty of water (bottled). Since you are a musician and as to anyone taking care of our hearing is super, super important, I would return to the clinic once you finish taking meds. Do not put water, alcohol, proxide, anything but drops into your ear. Hope this helps!!jl Answered by Theo Bartucca 6 months ago.
You sure that drops should be dropped in your ear? Not your nose? Some drugs, especially for relieving pressure, was meant to be given through the nose, not from the ear. Anyway, I don't know what drug did you take. Depends on the severity of the infection, the antibiotics needed may need both oral and drops (through ear this time). And what kind of infection? Bacteria? Fungal? An infection next to the ear drum will cause pain, very very pain, usually makes people scream at night. Answered by Dot Lovick 6 months ago.
1. When I had a SUPER HORRIBLE ear infection, I was given drops and the doctor told me that they sit in the ear for 5 minutes and then pour out. It isn't like a pill, it isn't meant to be absorbed by the ear. 2. Yeah, are you 100% sure that these are ear drops and not nose drops? 3. NEVER hold your nose and push! That is a horrible thing to do that can harm your ears!!!! After you shower, take rubbing alcohol and pour a cap full in your ear and lay on your side for a few minutes to make sure you get all the water out. The water can help fuel the infection.

First of all stop applying those useless anti dandruff shampoos they are the main cause of it, Take the Homeopathic Remedy SULFUR in 30 potency thrice a day and report back with your symptoms and conditions after taking it for three days regularly. The outcome of taking this remedy will determine what will finally eradicate your dandruff problem. Take Care and God Bless you ! Answered by Rosario Fehrle 6 months ago.
There is a common skin condition called scurf which is caused by Sodium Lauryl (and Laureth) Sulfate. Its symptoms are similar to those of Seborrhea Dermatitis. Which would explain why the meds worked for a while then appeared to stop - its possible that the seborrhea went away, while the scurf stayed. Try a shampoo without these chemicals and see what happens in a month or so. Brands include: Earth science (also free from fragrances, which can be irritating to an already sensitive scalp) Jason's (works fine), And I've had very good luck with Aubrey's Calagula Shampoo for dandruff and seborrhea. It doesn't lather worth a darn, but if I alternate these around I get good results most the time. When all else fails, I use kiss my face bar soap (yes, bar soap) for a couple of days (rinse with a tablespoon of vinegar in a quart of water then rinse again). I know it sounds like a pain, but its better than being flaky and itchy Answered by Senaida Lopey 6 months ago.
Neutrogena has a product called T/Gel and a couple others for this purpose some have medication in them, but they are't too harsh. You'll most likely have to use every day or so. Not too expensive and no prescription needed. May want to go the the health food store and check out natural products for shampoos and such too, the shampoos you've been using may be setting off an allergic reaction or too harsh for you too.

Hi there, I am a vegetarian as well. My suggestion is to buy E-Vitamin in the pure gel form. Pierce the capsule and apply it directly onto the skin. Also start taking the vitamin it self. E vitamin is essential for hair, skin and nails. Do you like avocados or any soy products? If so include them daily into your diet. Avacados alone are a complete meal in themselves, they have both of the good fats mono and poly unsaturated and both soy and avacados are great for your skin as they are the only foods which have SILICA. I want to know if you have sensitive skin are you fair skinned? You may want to attempt sun-block in certain areas if you are! FYI: Did you know about the B-12 suppliments for Vegans?

What could this rash be? (pic)?
I'm going to a dermatologist on Monday but I was wondering what this could be. It's been on my chest and lower breast for a week now. It's red raised bumps that form a round rash that is spreading outward. It is unbearably itchy. http://s88.beta.photobucket.com/user/jen...
Asked by Nikia Lennox 6 months ago.
Hello, Thanks for the pic. I am fairly certain (90%) that this is a fungus infection of the skin, also called ringworm (although no worm is involved, and "ring" refers to the marked outer circle shape with the central emptying). Your rash has an active, expanding edge, and it also has central clearing, - both of which are fairly classic for ringworm. What this jargon means, is that it starts out as a spot, and grows outwards in all directions at once (into uninfected skin). Because the outer edge of the "ring" is always entering fresh, virgin skin, it appears the most red and the most "active." On the other hand, the skin tends to recover in the older central bits, so the centre tends to clear itself of the rash. The itching is caused by the body becoming very allergic to the fungus, - particularly if it is an animal fungus causing this. Usually the rash is scaly, and a sample of these scales is generally scraped off and sent for examination at the hospital laboratory. This is an important step and in my humble opinion, you should ask if it is not offered. That is because treatment has to be given for weeks if not months, - and if later the treatment is not working, it has become much more difficult to confirm that the original diagnosis was correct. You should think whether you have had any animal contacts in the last few weeks, as your specialist will probably ask you? The fungus lives only in the very top layer of your skin and does not penetrate internally (unless you lack an effective immune system). So the "old" treatment used to be to "burn" the top layer of the skin off with a mild acid ointment, called Whitfield's ointment. With this top layer of the skin, all the fungus came away too. Animals with fungus skin infections used to be treated with by Vets with iodine ointment, - the iodine penetrated the outer skin and killed the fungus. This treatment would probably work on humans too, but it is staining and cosmetically unacceptable, the skin goes black. You have to *absolutely avoid* all cortisone creams (Betnovate, Synalar, Kenalog, Eumovate, Dermovate) because they appear to work initially, but only by suppressing the inflammation and the allergic reaction of the skin. They don't kill the fungus. People whose ringworm is mis-diagnosed as eczema, and treated with Betnovate cream, soldier on with ringworm for years. Modern treatment uses anti- fungus antibiotics both as a cream, and more recently by mouth as tablets. People with a bad rash, like this one, nearly always get both at once. A typical one is called Lamisil, - Lamisil cream and Lamisil tablets, I mean. The oldest anti-fungal antibiotic is Griseofulvin tablets, but there are more effective ones nowadays. Before seeing your specialist you should put nothing pharmaceutical on it, - we want your scrapings test to be positive. Some fungi cause the skin to fluoresce under a special UV light, called a Wood's Light, and your specialist may test your skin with this too. I hope this is of some help. You appear on the picture to have few "satellite" fungal spots, little red spots, scattered outside the main plaque. This too is in favour of a fungal (or a yeast) skin infection. Best wishes, Belliger retired uk GP Answered by Eduardo Gemmiti 6 months ago.
The circular shape could mean it's an infection known as ringworm. It's not a worm though, but a skin infection caused by a fungus. Itching is definitely a sign of a fungal infection. Ringworm is very contagious, and spreads easily to other parts of the body. It prefers warm and moist environments, such as between the toes, groin and under the breasts. It is easily treated with topical cream. I am not giving you a diagnosis, just saying what it MIGHT be. Until you see the dermatologist, practice good hygiene - wash with soap, dry yourself properly, try not to scratch the areas, and if you do, wash your hands thoroughly to prevent it from spreading on your body or other people.
