Q:

Who should get the flu shot?

A:

Anyone who is considered at risk of complications from the flu if they do get it should receive the flu shot. This includes people over 65 years, and anyone who has a chronic medical condition that is affecting your immune system. Also, if you are going to be exposed to the flu virus you should have the flu shot. This would include healthcare workers and students at schools.

Q:

What is esophagitis?

Esophagitis is irritation in the esophagus that is caused over time by continuing reflux. It can cause symptoms of the irritation, and can actually cause small blood loss which can lead to anemia (lower than normal levels of red blood cells in the body).

Q:

What are topical retinoids?

A:

Topical retinoids are prescriptions creams that are used to treat some cases of acne. They can be very effective, but require a lot of consistency in using them and have to be applied following your doctor's recommendations. If you have questions about whether topical retinoids could help your acne, you can ask your family doctor or dermatologist.
