Is she still using the ofloxacin? I have reasons to believe that's the reason for her insomnia.

Insomnia has diverse causes which could be drug related or not ( possibly psychophysiologic, environmental, hygiene related etc or an interplay between any of the factord)

CBT is advocated as first management option.

we can discuss more on these if the insomnia is still on

pharm in the house

last Monday (in the morning to be precise) I started having malaria symptoms like cold, sweating, headache and general body pain, and by evening time, I had developed serious sore throat that I couldn't even swallow saliva.
so I started taking lumaterm and completed the dosage and I felt better. the symptoms were all gone, together with the sore throat. this was on Wednesday .

but by friday the symptoms resurfaced, first the sore throat and then the malaria symptoms . so I went to the nearest pharmacy and met the pharmacist who recommended kazithrocin for the sore throat, I also started lonart DS for the malaria . As at Sunday I started feeling fine again. though still showing little symptoms of malaria , but the sore throat was gone .

so please what can I do to prevent a relapse.

if its genetic, there is little u can do. Pls be mindful of ur diet in d bit to grow bigger, I'm an advocate of organic, fresh and natural food in reasonable proportions. I don't encourage processed and inorganics, its a personal principle though. Also, why not wait till u start bearing kids? If ur desperate, see a specialist physician.. A clinical nutritionist/dietetician would help too.

Dear blessed Pharm, I've been having serious eczema since I was 17(mostly when I change soap or body creme). I'm 31 now and it still happens. I recently visited a doctor the eczema issue with some ringworm-like rashes on my neck, chest, hands and shoulders and he prescribed Nizoral(ketoconazole) shampoo, which worked well on the eczema but the rashes are getting severe and itchier now. Kindly prescribe what I can use and possibly the body creme or lotion for a sensitive skin as mine. Thanks greatly.

Hello Pharm,
My One year three months old baby started
vomiting three days ago, he vomited like five
times dat day, we initially thought it's
indigestion, we later put a call to my aunt that
is a nurse and explained to her, she said it
might be malaria or worm , so she suggested
we buy coartem and a drug for deworming,
which we did and give him, though the
pharmacist prescribed we also give him
amoxillin and a drug that will first stop the
vomiting, we gave him all the drug as
prescribed, though he is okay now and playing,
still on the drug sha, but my concern is his
stomach that is a little big, though he is not
passing out excreta as he used to, could it be
the side effects of the drugs given him? cos
apart from not eating well and the stomach,
every other things looks fine as he plays and
run around the compound.

Please tell your friend to visit the nearest hospital for medical attention.
