(L:)[!!*]SEDATIVE— Midazolam >L
Lies used this during Leukemia treatment

Midazolam, sold under the brand name Versed among others, is a benzodiazepine medication used for anesthesia and procedural sedation, and to treat severe agitation. It works by inducing sleepiness, decreasing anxiety, and causing a loss of ability to create new memories. 
Paradoxical effects, such as increased activity, can occur especially in children and older people.[10] 
In rare susceptible individuals, midazolam has been known to cause a paradoxical reaction, a well-documented complication with benzodiazepines. When this occurs, the individual may experience anxiety, involuntary movements, aggressive or violent behavior, uncontrollable crying or verbalization, and other similar effects. This seems to be related to the altered state of consciousness or disinhibition produced by the drug. Paradoxical behavior is often not recalled by the patient due to the amnesia-producing properties of the drug. In extreme situations, flumazenil can be administered to inhibit or reverse the effects of midazolam.  Antipsychotic medications, such as haloperidol, have also been used for this purpose.[42]

2020/06 Lies:
    left ear, lasted a month
    probably touch with q-tip, ~3-days later problems
    took a few ibuprofens when needed in beginning
    were applying garlic+olive oil mixture (warm)
    there were "crusts inside"
    heard 60% (it was totally stuffed)
    ______ week 1
    ruptures ear drum:
        hearing totally gone
    went to hospital, but didn't have coverage documents ready
    leaking and blood started after
    goes to pharmacy:
        pharmacist is not clear about it but there is a distinction between:
            A) OUTER EAR
            B) MIDDLE EAR (which should not be treated with drops)
    treats with Otogen drops:
        "they felt very cold"
        i wasn't really taking the drops
    ______ week 2
    the infection healed "because of time"
    "we kept doing the oil treatment"
    ______ week 3
    flies to Belgium, as *after* you have broken ear drum it's fine
    ### (not sure):
        got some pills that "needed to be efficient within X days"
        otherwise surgical options would need to be assesed
        but then it worked out (X+a few days)
    ______ 1 year later
    totally cured, "i feel maybe some slight sensitivity, slight tingle, basically tingle"

________________________ 2021/05 D:
    probably q-tip my ear
    a few days later:
        close with somebody with runny nose and coughs
        she also sticks hair in my ear canal (?!)
        * oil+garlic : did not have a good feeling
        * otogen drops : same, it seems getting worse
    getting better, then worse:
        * swelling on face-side of targus
        * day 4, jaw kind of blocked — TMJ suspected as well!:
            (esp since D has a destroyed TMJ from wisdom tooth extraction there)
    __________________ day 5
    tried vinegar+alcohol :
        * tried on good ear first
        * was worried because YOU SHOULD NOT DO IT WITH MIDDLE EAR INFECTION didn't feel any seems it helps
        * no difference - trying to use it a few times
        * seems to really improve my situation
        * first night when condition improved (post Mavericks Game 6)
    -------- 0609
        oido externo: otodinia izquierda +++ trago/antitrago+++ mastoides ++ cae: inflamado+++ cerumen/secresiones+++ mt: no visible.
            antitragus (a bone):
            mastoides (=cells) ... but mastoiditis (=serious condition with those cells):
        otoscopia: --||--
        berrera idiomatica.
    --------- 0611
    * i decided to not take the pills so far, tried reaching my doctors but no luck until today morning
    * had a 10min consultation and she basically went:
        1) you don't have pain when you press on the ears
        2) you don't have blocked nasal pathways:
            this is important for the middle ear to air out
        3) cover your nose, blow it to "equalize pressure":
            if this doesn't hurt, you're fine
    so her opinion on distance is:
        i don't need antibiotics if nothing else turns up

    Prevention when chronic: vax against flue & pneumonia!
There is no really reliable way to prevent middle ear infections. However, scientific evidence suggests that vaccination against pneumococcus and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) can protect against middle ear infections. These bacteria can trigger the painful inflammations. The Standing Commission on Vaccination at the Robert Koch Institute in Berlin therefore recommends immunisation as a standard vaccination. Whether vaccination is advisable should be discussed with a specialist. More information about the recommended time frame for the most important vaccinations in infancy can be found here.

facial asymetry: long term complication
Facial asymmetry is a condition that may be congenital or acquired. The most common cause of acquired facial asymmetry is unilateral TMJ ankylosis which occurs following trauma, infection and chronic inflammatory diseases. Otitis media is one of local causes of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) associated complications such as suppurative arthritis and ankylosis.
We report a case with history of chronic otitis media that resulted in restricted growth of the mandible, atresia of the external auditory meatus and facial asymmetry.

* tea tree oil (VERY dilluted)

Since the TM joint resides adjacent to the ears, it's common to experience many TMJ symptoms in the ears. Patients can experience ear pain or clogged ears that they might pass off as an ear infection or allergies but is actually from TMD. TMD can also cause tinnitus (ringing in the ears from nerve irritation).3 Sept 2020

    stop bleeding
    clean (iodine)
    treating (Antibiotic creams, aloe vera, etc)

if bleeding is serious, please get medical attention immediately, if this is not possible, then you can follow these instructions. First clean the wound, using water and a mild soup, then an antibiotic essential oil, such as cinnamon oil to keep it from getting infected, before applying a sanitory bandage. If bleeding is too heavy for the bandage, you will need an antihemorrhagic sealant such as Chitosan, in a pinch you get can some fresh organic blackberries and make a paste with ginger, garlic and turmeric, and use that as a sealant.

yarrow leaves (Achillea millefolia) are also a very good hemostatic, and they grow year-round in some climate zones (tendency probably increasing...)

______ wound irrigation (cleaning with water under pressure)
When talking about the topic of Wound Irrigation, many people picture someone steadily pouring water over a wound from a bottle or container. While that is certainly better than nothing, there are certain things to consider which greatly increase the efficiency of Irrigation. Whenever Wound Irrigation is performed correctly it removes debris and contaminates from the wound, enhances wound healing, and most importantly makes it easier for you to visualize (and thus assess) the Wound. Like I mentioned before, Irrigation is not as simple as pouring water or normal saline over a wound before you apply a dressing, it must be performed properly through planned and deliberate actions to achieve the desired results.
So if it's not dumping a ton of water over the Wound, what is Irrigation, and what does it achieve when carried out correctly? Wound irrigation involves the use of fluid, in a pressurized method, to remove:
cellular debris that is loosely clinging to      
     the wound
surface bacteria
wound exudate (drainage)
dressing residue
residual topical residue from ointments 
     and other topical agents
The ultimate goal when irrigating a wound is to assist with maintaining a moist wound environment to promote optimal wound healing and debridement of devitalized tissues, also to expedite wound healing. Almost all wounds you'll encounter can and should be irrigated. The only exception to the rule I can think of off hand is wounds that are bleeding heavily, and I mean heavily. In these types of wounds Irrigation will impact the bodies blood clotting cascade and any irrigation may dislodge clots that are forming, or have already formed, and actually cause the  bleeding to resume. 
So now that we have an idea of what Irrigation is, and what we're hoping to accomplish by performing it, let's look at some considerations of Wound Irrigation you'll want to keep in mind:
 Wounds should be irrigated during your initial assessment to more effectively and accurately assess all aspects of the Wound, in addition wounds should be irrigated every time you perform a dressing change.
 Normal saline is considered the standard as far as irrigant solution in the healthcare setting; however, there is evidence based reports in circulation currently that elude to tap water resulting in faster wound healing.
 THE MOST IMPORTANT Consideration to Irrigation is no doubt Irrigation Pressure. Without enough pressure being applied during Irrigation, the process will fall short of removing surface bacteria, debris, and contaminants. In the event this happens, the potential for Wound infection is greatly increased. On the other end of the spectrum providing too much pressure can actually force contaminants downward into the wound bed and also disrupt and damage granulation tissue. The optimal Irrigation pressure should be between 4 and 15 psi, to achieve this in the healthcare setting an 18g blunt tip catheter is attached to the end of a normal saline flush.
With the above considerations in mind, let's walk through, step by step, on how you should perform the Irrigation of a wound:
Gather all the necessary materials to preform your intervention, set up and stage your area appropriately
Preform hand hygiene and then position the patient to provide the best access and visualization of the wound.
Don gloves and remove the old dressing, throw away the old dressing and the now soiled gloves, perform hand hygiene 
Drape the patient and pad around the wound with towels or padding to absorb the irrigant solution.
Don protective equipment (eye protection, gloves, and gown and mask). The likelihood of splash back should be heavily considered and protected against
Irrigate the wound using the appropriate pressure (4-15 psi, accomplished by using the appropriate size needle to achieve pressurized stream), of note studies have long reported a psi of 10-15 to be most affective, for that Pressure an 18g needle can be attached to the flush 
Pat dry any intact skin with light pressure and cover open areas with sterile gauze 
Redress the wound only after performing any necessary interventions such as debridement.
Dispose of dirty/soiled materials
 IMPORTANT NOTE: You should be careful to allow the solution to flow from the CLEANEST to the DIRTIEST area of the wound. Do not force irrigant solution into any wound pockets such as any areas of tunneling. 
So in closing lets cover some key points to take away from this write up. Performing wound irrigation is easy if you understand the principles behind doing it, in addition it's relatively quick and effectively promotes wound healing. Having the proper tools to carry out your interventions readily available to you will make the process more efficient and limit the chance of Wound contamination, and thus, risk of infection. Irrigation can literally be carried out on almost any Wound, on any part of the body, and can be done in virtually any setting. So, if the injury results in any debris being present in the wound, if you suspect any contamination at all (and you always should), if you have any concerns at all, FLUSH , FLUSH, FLUSH

* dental: abscess

An abscess at the end of a tooth is called a periapical abscess. An abscess in the gum is called a periodontal abscess.

Dentists will treat a tooth abscess by draining it and getting rid of the infection. They may be able to save your tooth with a root canal treatment, but in some cases the tooth may need to be pulled. Leaving a tooth abscess untreated can lead to serious, even life-threatening, complications.

* dental: plaque

* dental: canker sore / apht / ulcer

* mild ear infection: itchy ear canal / ear entry

Does the skin around your ears feel dry, itchy, or irritated? There are a number of things that may be causing your ear discomfort, such as heat exposure, harsh soaps, or a possible chronic skin condition.

check for "swimmer's ear"

An outer ear infection (otitis externa) causes pain, redness and swelling in your outer ear canal. This is the tube that leads into your ear. Outer ear infection is usually caused by bacteria. But they may also be caused by a fungal infection, irritation or eczema in or around your ear canal.

seems Guarana helps !

Guarana refers to the seed extract of a natural stimulant native to the Amazon forest.
Of the herbs discussed here, guarana most resembles ADHD stimulant drugs. It contains xanthine alkaloids such as caffeine, theophylline and theobromine.
The alkaloids in guarana not only boosts stamina and energy but they also reduce mental fatigue. Caffeine, for example, increases the levels of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. At the doses in which it is supplied, it actually has a calming effect on hyperactive ADHD kids.
Theophylline also stimulates the central nervous system and it improves mental alertness. Theobromine, on the other hand, improves mood.
Therefore, all the medicinal effects of the alkaloids found in guarana can help improve different symptoms of ADHD.

also see → Blepharitis

“When Demodex mites are identified as being present, the treatment is straightforward. However, because of the nature of the mites, they can multiply at a rapid pace, so they must all be removed,” Dr. Wolle says. “The best way to go about this is through lid scrubs and tea tree oil, which cleans the dandruff from the lash root and irritates the mites enough for them to move out of the skin. Like anything else, maintaining proper hygiene is essential.”


Blepharitis causes red, swollen and itchy eyelids. It can normally be treated by washing your eyelids every day. The condition is not usually serious, but can lead to other problems, such as dry eyes, cysts and conjunctivitis, especially if it's not treated.

Symptoms of blepharitis include:
  • sore eyelids
  • itchy eyes
  • a gritty feeling in the eyes
  • flakes or crusts around the roots of the eyelashes
  • red eyes or eyelids
  • eyelids sticking together in the morning when you wake up

Acne scars
Acne has a prevalence of over 90% among adolescents and persists into adulthood in approximately 12%–14% of cases with psychological and social implications. Possible outcomes of the inflammatory acne lesions are acne scars which, although they can be treated in a number of ways, may have a negative psychological impact on social life and relationships. The main types of acne scars are atrophic and hypertrophic scars. The pathogenesis of acne scarring is still not fully understood, but several hypotheses have been proposed. There are numerous treatments: chemical peels, dermabrasion/microdermabrasion, laser treatment, punch techniques, dermal grafting, needling and combined therapies for atrophic scars: silicone gels, intralesional steroid therapy, cryotherapy, and surgery for hypertrophic and keloidal lesions. This paper summarizes acne scar pathogenesis, classification and treatment options.

Or any “energy intensive” challenge that requires “conscious processing of inputs, conscious decision making, complex problem solving, memorizing complex concepts, planning, strategizing, self-reflection, regulating our emotions and channeling energy from them, exercising self-control and willpower,” Swart says.

The hydration, nutrients, and rest you need are even more important as your brain learns, unlearns, and relearns behavioral patterns.

Supraspinatus rupture (upper back / shoulder blade muscle)
The supraspinatus (PL: supraspinati) is a relatively small muscle of the upper back that runs from the supraspinous fossa superior portion of the scapula (shoulder blade) to the greater tubercle of the humerus. It is one of the four rotator cuff muscles and also abducts the arm at the shoulder. The spine of the scapula separates the supraspinatus muscle from the infraspinatus muscle, which originates below the spine.

Benzoacine (Otogen ear drops)
Benzocaine, sold under the brand name Orajel amongst others, is an ester local anesthetic commonly used as a topical pain reliever or in cough drops. It is the active ingredient in many over-the-counter anesthetic ointments such as products for oral ulcers. It is also combined with antipyrine to form A/B otic drops to relieve ear pain and remove earwax.

Chlorhexidine (CHX)

We have Belgian Astrexine ("for use on skin")
Astrexine is an antiseptic agent. Astrexine is active against vegetative forms of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria and yeasts, dermatophytes and lipophilic viruses. This medicine has effect for bacterial spores only at elevated temperatures. It cleans and disinfects the skin without causing damage.
For local use of Astrexine Pharmaniaga: trichomonas coleitis, cervical erosion, itching of the vulva, prevention of sexually transmitted diseases ; gingivitis, stomatitis, aphthae, paradont, alveolitis, disinfection of removable dentures, sore throat; postoperative care for patients in ENT and dentistry.
Treatment of wounds, burn wounds and surfaces, disinfection of the patient's skin.
Treatment of surgeons', nurses' hands and operating field before diagnostic manipulation operation.
Disinfection of work surfaces of devices (including thermometers) and equipment which heat treatment is not desirable.


In endodontics, chlorhexidine is used for root canal irrigation and as an intracanal dressing,[11][12][13] but has been replaced by the use of sodium hypochlorite bleach in much of the developed world. 


Chlorohexidine as Mouthwash
About 20 mL twice a day of concentrations of 0.1% to 0.2% is recommended for mouth-rinse solutions with a duration of at least 30 seconds

Chlorhexidine is a cation which interacts with anionic components of toothpaste, such as sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium monofluorophosphate, and forms salts of low solubility and antibacterial activity. Hence, to enhance the antiplaque effect of chlorhexidine, "it seems best that the interval between toothbrushing and rinsing with CHX [chlorhexidine] be more than 30 minutes, cautiously close to 2 hours after brushing.".[22]

However, topical ketoconazole, which does not distribute systemically, is safe and widely used still.[15]

#) find possibly better (and related) replacements
"ketoconazole has largely been replaced as a first-line systemic antifungal medication by other azole antifungal agents, such as itraconazole, because of ketoconazole's greater toxicity, poorer absorption, and more limited spectrum of activity"

________ g: "is it bad to take antibiotics if you don't need them"
Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI or C-diff), also known as Clostridium difficile infection, is a symptomatic infection due to the spore-forming bacterium Clostridioides difficile.[2][5] Symptoms include watery diarrhea, fever, nausea, and abdominal pain.[1] It makes up about 20% of cases of antibiotic-associated diarrhea.[1]  Antibiotics can contribute to detrimental changes in gut microbiota; specifically, they decrease short-chain fatty acid absorption which results in osmotic, or watery, diarrhea.[6] Complications may include pseudomembranous colitis, toxic megacolon, perforation of the colon, and sepsis.[1]
Clostridioides difficile infection is spread by bacterial spores found within feces.[1] Surfaces may become contaminated with the spores with further spread occurring via the hands of healthcare workers.

DENTAL— Saltwater daily is bad for teeth?

Can I use salt water as mouthwash everyday?

Certain essential oils possess pain-relieving qualities, including clove, nutmeg, eucalyptus, or peppermint oil.
Use a cotton swab and dilute one of these oils, then apply it to the problem tooth and/or gum area. Repeat the process as needed. This can also be done with apple cider vinegar.

Measles & immune amnesia ?!
Enter "immune amnesia", a mysterious phenomenon that's been with us for millennia, though it was only discovered in 2012. Essentially, when you're infected with measles, your immune system abruptly forgets every pathogen it's ever encountered before – every cold, every bout of flu, every exposure to bacteria or viruses in the environment, every vaccination. The loss is near-total and permanent. Once the measles infection is over, current evidence suggests that your body has to re-learn what's good and what's bad almost from scratch.
Scientists have known for decades that even after they recover, children who have been infected with measles are significantly more likely to fall ill and die from other causes. In fact, a study from 1995 found that vaccinating against the virus reduces the overall likelihood of death by between 30% and 86% in the years afterwards.

First measles infects memory cells, then somehow the immune system learns how to identify the virus itself. Once it's started producing immune cells specific to measles, they travel around the body, hunting down infected memory cells  So you end up with cells that can identify measles systematically killing off cells that can identify other viruses. The virus leads us to destroy our own immune memories.  
Eventually, measles ends up replacing all your normal immune memory cells with ones that can identify it, and nothing else. This means you're only immune to measles – while all other pathogens are forgotten. It's a counter-intuitive strategy, especially from the virus' perspective, since it won't be able to sneak into the body again without being recognised.

Dental pain relief

It is often helpful to alternate Tylenol and Ibuprofen every 4 hours. In other words, take 800 mg Ibuproven every 8 hours. Four hours later take two extra strength Tylenol (2 x 500mg) and take the Tylenol every 8 hours. Do not take either one more frequently. So every 4 hours you will be alternating 800 mg Ibuprofen with 1,000 mg of Tylenol. That should help with the pain. Tests show that is as effective as Codeine and not nearly as addictive. The antibiotics will take 48 to 72 hours to fully kick in. Once it does, the need for pain medication will decrease. I hope that helps. Dr. Silberman

When to take?
  • Amoxicillin is rapidly absorbed after oral administration and peak levels are reached 1-2 hours after dosing. However, it may take up to 24-72 hours of regular dosing before infection symptoms start to abate.
So, given 20-24h is peak (Ear) infection period, should be T-1h, so 7-11pm.

Probiotics? No:
Doctors who recommend probiotics typically suggest that people take them a few hours after their antibiotic. Otherwise, the two medications can cancel each other out. Some doctors even suggest waiting to start probiotics until a few days after you've completed your course of antibiotics.Jun 29, 2020
[!!] what to eat during/after AB?
Some foods interfere with the effectiveness of antibiotics.
These include grapefruits, can stop the body from breaking down and correctly absorbing the medication.
Also, some research indicates that foods fortified with high doses of calcium, such as some orange juices, can interfere with the absorption of certain antibiotics.

[!!*] TOREAD/COMMUNISM— Social Medicine
Social care traditionally takes a different look at issues of impairment and disability by adopting a holistic perspective on health. The social model was developed as a direct response to the medical model, the social model sees barriers (physical, attitudinal and behavioural) not just as a biomedical issue, but as caused in part by the society we live in – as a product of the physical, organizational and social worlds that lead to discrimination (Oliver 1996; French 1993; Oliver and Barnes 1993). Social care advocates equality of opportunities for vulnerable sections of society.[4]
German physician Rudolf Virchow (1821–1902) laid foundations for this model. Other prominent figures in the history of social medicine, beginning from the 20th century, include Salvador Allende, Henry E. Sigerist, Thomas McKeown,[5] Victor W. Sidel,[6] Howard Waitzkin, and more recently Paul Farmer[7] and Jim Yong Kim.

Additionally, not all types of pneumonia produce distinctive sounds that can be easily detected with a stethoscope.""":
