How do you stop an insect bite from swelling?
Last night, I was bitten by some sort of insect repeatedly on the palms of my hands and my face. Now the bites on my faces are prominent and itchy and just look really stupid! How can i make them go down? Asked by Mindy Robishaw 2 years ago.

Signs and symptoms of an insect bite result from the injection of venom or other substances into your skin. The venom triggers an allergic reaction. The severity of your reaction depends on your sensitivity to the insect venom or substance. Most reactions to insect bites are mild, causing little more than an annoying itching or stinging sensation and mild swelling that disappear within a day or so. A delayed reaction may cause fever, hives, painful joints and swollen glands. You might experience both the immediate and the delayed reactions from the same insect bite or sting. Only a small percentage of people develop severe reactions (anaphylaxis) to insect venom. Signs and symptoms of a severe reaction include facial swelling, difficulty breathing and shock. Bites from bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and fire ants are typically the most troublesome. Bites from mosquitoes, ticks, biting flies and some spiders also can cause reactions, but these are generally milder. For mild reactions: Move to a safe area to avoid more stings. Scrape or brush off the stinger with a straight-edged object, such as a credit card or the back of a knife. Wash the affected area with soap and water. Don't try to pull out the stinger; doing so may release more venom. To reduce pain and swelling, apply a cold pack or cloth filled with ice. Apply 0.5 percent or 1 percent hydrocortisone cream, calamine lotion or a baking soda paste — with a ratio of 3 teaspoons baking soda to 1 teaspoon water — to the bite or sting several times a day until your symptoms subside. Take an antihistamine containing diphenhydramine (Benadryl, Tylenol Severe Allergy) or chlorpheniramine maleate (Chlor-Trimeton, Teldrin). Allergic reactions may include mild nausea and intestinal cramps, diarrhea or swelling larger than 2 inches in diameter at the site. See your doctor promptly if you experience any of these signs and symptoms. For severe reactions: Severe reactions may progress rapidly. Dial 911 or call for emergency medical assistance if the following signs or symptoms occur: Difficulty breathing Swelling of your lips or throat Faintness Dizziness Confusion Rapid heartbeat Hives Nausea, cramps and vomiting Take these actions immediately while waiting with an affected person for medical help: Check for special medications that the person might be carrying to treat an allergic attack, such as an auto-injector of epinephrine (for example, EpiPen). Administer the drug as directed — usually by pressing the auto-injector against the person's thigh and holding it in place for several seconds. Massage the injection site for 10 seconds to enhance absorption. After administering epinephrine, have the person take an antihistamine pill if he or she is able to do so without choking. Have the person lie still on his or her back with feet higher than the head. Loosen tight clothing and cover the person with a blanket. Don't give anything to drink. If there's vomiting or bleeding from the mouth, turn the person on his or her side to prevent choking. If there are no signs of circulation (breathing, coughing or movement), begin CPR. If your doctor has prescribed an auto-injector of epinephrine, read the instructions before a problem develops and also have your household members read them. Answered by Milda Vaillancourt 2 years ago.

webmd has a list of some. yesterday i had a very bad migraine and called my doctor and she told me I could take regular strength tylenol (not ibufrofin or advil or aspirin , just tylenol regular strength) as long as i took the recommended dose which was two pills but to only take it if absolutely necessary (which it was I had the migraine for a day and a half and it was started to make me feel very sick). However, before I knew I was pregnant i took ibufrofin and was fine. Answered by Kristina Quest 2 years ago.

I am 30 weeks pregnant with a bad cough and a sore throat, can this affect my baby?
im taking halls cough drops and tylenol but i dont want to take nething else Asked by Frank Vanaller 2 years ago.

I am 30 weeks now and I had a bad cough a few weeks ago that lasted weeks. I was scared I was doing damage, but everything was okay. My doctor told me that as long as it was a dry cough there was not really anything she could do. I was told to take over the counter meds. They gave me a big list which I no longer have but here is what I found on another website. My doctor's list was actually a lot longer than the one I found on this website. I ended up taking Tylenol Cold Multi Symptom but the daytime not the nightime. Call your doctors office and they can give you a list of what they feel is good. Headache, fever : Tylenol, Extra Strength Tylenol, Acetominophen, Anacin 3 Cold, stuffy head: Sudafed tablets (decongestant) Stuffy, runny nose: Actifed (decongestant & antihistamine, Teldrin, Contact, Benadryl, Chlortrimetron, Sudafed Plus. Avoid nasal sprays. Cough Cough drops: Halls, Vicks, or lemon drops, Robitussin DM. I remember reading something about that some medicines have changed their active ingredients so they can be sold without going to the pharmacy and that the new meds are not good for babies even though they were on the list. Call the doctor, that is what we are paying them big bucks for. Good luck. Answered by Edie Spruel 2 years ago.

You can take all tylenol products, so maybe you should get some tylenol cold to help ease those symptoms.. but no, the baby doesn't realize you're sick and it's not going to affect him or her.. the only thing that can affect the baby is if you get a fever but if you're taking tylenol then that is not a concern :) Answered by Mammie Monz 2 years ago.

You being sick will not affect the baby unless you are taking medicines. I always read the box when I was pregnant and sick. I was such a freak about it that I wouldn't take anything! It will be ok, if you need something stronger call the doctor and they can get you something that won't mess with the baby! Good luck! Answered by Tommy Varron 2 years ago.

Happened to me at about 37 weeks and everything was fine. You aren't supposed to take anything besides Tylenol but there might be something your doctor can give you, otherwise you have to suffer through it but it will definitely NOT hurt your baby. Answered by Yen Noonon 2 years ago.

There is nothing about the common cold that can harm your baby. Cough drops are perfectly safe. Stay hydrated and rest as often as you can to help heal faster. :) Answered by Donn Bodi 2 years ago.

My OB Dr. gave me a list of medicines that are safe for pregnancy. You can take Sudafed, Actifed, Claritin, and Tylenol Cold & Sinus. Answered by Iola Chladek 2 years ago.

My doctor approves Sudafed (Pseudephedprine) Actifed, Tavist D, Clor-Trimeton, Tylonel Sinus, and Claritin... but of course not all doctors agree, so you should ask yours. Answered by Denver Farness 2 years ago.

Talk to your doctor first they should have a free 24 hr help line. they will give you a list of approved meds and their proper doses. I used Tylenol Sinus, too as psuedofedrin and acetaminophen are generally safe. I don't know of any other approved medicine. try a steamy shower and vapor rub. Answered by Tory Lupino 2 years ago.

Sudafed and tylenol sinus. However, if it is chronic, you might have bad allergies. I went to the doc and i take Nasonex now daily. It is safe for the prego's. But talk to your OB first. Answered by Adelaida Ciullo 2 years ago.

Sudafed is really the only thing my doctors have ever told me was ok to take while pregnant. But talk to your doctor before taking anything because you are not me, and your situation is different from everyone else. Answered by Towanda Bonomo 2 years ago.

For me, I was afraid to take much of anything. I heated up a wet rag in the microwave (10 sec...be careful will be HOT). Then lie down and apply to painful area. This will help loosen the compaction up. You may have to reheat and apply several times. This helped me TREMENDOUSLY! Good luck and feel better soon. Answered by Jackqueline Blacklock 2 years ago.

Not much, probably regular Tylenol, but ask your doctor. Sudafed used to be acceptable, but I'm not sure since they changed the formula...gotta' ask the doc on that one. Hot tea or chicken broth helps to open things up some, and you should be able to use Vick's Vaporub...maybe a cold compress on your head? ***Please be careful of over the counter drugs, some of them have changed formulations recently, and the new ingredients may not be as safe as the old ones during pregnancy.

plain old sudafed. Nothing special about it, just the normal stuff. You can take generic too as long as it's plain. Answered by Ellis Sarabia 2 years ago.

If your cold is bothering you a lot I would try it, but not every day. Maybe instead you could try some caffeine free tea with honey and take a tylenol to soothe your throat.

Yes when I was pregnant I got a cold and my ob/gyn said it was ok to take a regular dose of Tylenol Sinus. Answered by Jeannie Dunphy 2 years ago.

Don't think you are suppose to take the multi-symptom Tylenol products. Contact your dr. Answered by Shelia Hefferon 2 years ago.

don't i hope you have a Dr. this product will raise your blood pressure and distress your child. if you already have taken it maybe things will be OK. don't take it again and if you are ill Vick's rub is OK. saline drops warm tea with honey, best if you are ill enough to take some medicine you need to see your Dr. Answered by Barton Griswald 2 years ago.

My doctor said anything Tylenol brand would be fine. But you should check with your own doc first. He/She should give you a pre-printed list of medicines that are ok for you to take. Answered by Latanya Syck 2 years ago.

webmd has a list of some. yesterday i had a very bad migraine and called my doctor and she told me I could take regular strength tylenol (not ibufrofin or advil or aspirin , just tylenol regular strength) as long as i took the recommended dose which was two pills but to only take it if absolutely necessary (which it was I had the migraine for a day and a half and it was started to make me feel very sick). However, before I knew I was pregnant i took ibufrofin and was fine. Answered by Quyen Fritzman 2 years ago.

Tylenol, regular or extra strength is fine to take. (from the Pregnancy instructions from Northern Virginia Physicians to Women). This all I can help with! Good luck! Almost 30 weeks with # 1 Answered by Myrtie Dohman 2 years ago.

A list is attached below. And yes Tylenol is safe. Congradulations Answered by Naomi Mclaren 2 years ago.


I am 30 weeks pregnant with a bad cough and a sore throat, can this affect my baby?
im taking halls cough drops and tylenol but i dont want to take nething else Asked by Scarlett Snelgrove 2 years ago.

I am 30 weeks now and I had a bad cough a few weeks ago that lasted weeks. I was scared I was doing damage, but everything was okay. My doctor told me that as long as it was a dry cough there was not really anything she could do. I was told to take over the counter meds. They gave me a big list which I no longer have but here is what I found on another website. My doctor's list was actually a lot longer than the one I found on this website. I ended up taking Tylenol Cold Multi Symptom but the daytime not the nightime. Call your doctors office and they can give you a list of what they feel is good. Headache, fever : Tylenol, Extra Strength Tylenol, Acetominophen, Anacin 3 Cold, stuffy head: Sudafed tablets (decongestant) Stuffy, runny nose: Actifed (decongestant & antihistamine, Teldrin, Contact, Benadryl, Chlortrimetron, Sudafed Plus. Avoid nasal sprays. Cough Cough drops: Halls, Vicks, or lemon drops, Robitussin DM. I remember reading something about that some medicines have changed their active ingredients so they can be sold without going to the pharmacy and that the new meds are not good for babies even though they were on the list. Call the doctor, that is what we are paying them big bucks for. Good luck. Answered by Vertie Sunderland 2 years ago.

You can take all tylenol products, so maybe you should get some tylenol cold to help ease those symptoms.. but no, the baby doesn't realize you're sick and it's not going to affect him or her.. the only thing that can affect the baby is if you get a fever but if you're taking tylenol then that is not a concern :) Answered by Kyra Wariner 2 years ago.

You being sick will not affect the baby unless you are taking medicines. I always read the box when I was pregnant and sick. I was such a freak about it that I wouldn't take anything! It will be ok, if you need something stronger call the doctor and they can get you something that won't mess with the baby! Good luck! Answered by Neva Lacko 2 years ago.

Happened to me at about 37 weeks and everything was fine. You aren't supposed to take anything besides Tylenol but there might be something your doctor can give you, otherwise you have to suffer through it but it will definitely NOT hurt your baby. Answered by Dorla Gammon 2 years ago.

There is nothing about the common cold that can harm your baby. Cough drops are perfectly safe. Stay hydrated and rest as often as you can to help heal faster. :) Answered by Bennie Loxtercamp 2 years ago.

When I was pregnant and got a minor cold my obny/gyno prescribed me Robitussin DM *I think* Ask your Doc! Hope you feel better! :) Answered by Chung Beuth 2 years ago.

My OB Dr. gave me a list of medicines that are safe for pregnancy. You can take Sudafed, Actifed, Claritin, and Tylenol Cold & Sinus. Answered by Debbie Dudding 2 years ago.

My doctor approves Sudafed (Pseudephedprine) Actifed, Tavist D, Clor-Trimeton, Tylonel Sinus, and Claritin... but of course not all doctors agree, so you should ask yours. Answered by Iris Stoudt 2 years ago.

Talk to your doctor first they should have a free 24 hr help line. they will give you a list of approved meds and their proper doses. I used Tylenol Sinus, too as psuedofedrin and acetaminophen are generally safe. I don't know of any other approved medicine. try a steamy shower and vapor rub. Answered by Santiago Sierer 2 years ago.

Sudafed and tylenol sinus. However, if it is chronic, you might have bad allergies. I went to the doc and i take Nasonex now daily. It is safe for the prego's. But talk to your OB first. Answered by Maribel Grenda 2 years ago.

Sudafed is really the only thing my doctors have ever told me was ok to take while pregnant. But talk to your doctor before taking anything because you are not me, and your situation is different from everyone else. Answered by Ronni Beneuento 2 years ago.

For me, I was afraid to take much of anything. I heated up a wet rag in the microwave (10 sec...be careful will be HOT). Then lie down and apply to painful area. This will help loosen the compaction up. You may have to reheat and apply several times. This helped me TREMENDOUSLY! Good luck and feel better soon. Answered by Shanice Gastello 2 years ago.

Not much, probably regular Tylenol, but ask your doctor. Sudafed used to be acceptable, but I'm not sure since they changed the formula...gotta' ask the doc on that one. Hot tea or chicken broth helps to open things up some, and you should be able to use Vick's Vaporub...maybe a cold compress on your head? ***Please be careful of over the counter drugs, some of them have changed formulations recently, and the new ingredients may not be as safe as the old ones during pregnancy. Ask the pharmacist if you can't reach the doctor. Answered by Kyle Holbach 2 years ago.

plain old sudafed. Nothing special about it, just the normal stuff. You can take generic too as long as it's plain. Answered by Wonda Matusiewicz 2 years ago.

If your cold is bothering you a lot I would try it, but not every day. Maybe instead you could try some caffeine free tea with honey and take a tylenol to soothe your throat. Ask your doctor tomorrow morning, good luck hun! P.S- This is a TERRIBLE example, but there are those people that drink alcohol every day and still have normal babies. So don't get yourself to worked up!! :o) Answered by Sherrill Twelves 2 years ago.

i don't think it'll kill your baby but i'm not sure if it''s safe. call your dr. first. Answered by Tod Kaliszewski 2 years ago.
