Mr. Peabody’s in Paradise Show

Apr 27, 2016

What do you do when bad things happen to someone you oppose? Health Matters has reflected on this over the past week, when a fire destroyed the local hookah bar and tanning center. On April 13, Peabody Coal Company filed for bankruptcy in the US, which means people in Kentucky have had an unfortunately good month. Join us for a detailed discussion of the reliability of health apps, the care provided in virtual visits, and a reminder of how to manage those nasty spring allergies.

 

Tip:  A corticosteroid nasal spray, the number one choice among doctors for nasal allergies, is now available without a prescription. Brand names, such as Flonase, Nasacort,  Rhinocort, are available over-the-counter, and provide more complete relief than antihistamines, although they must be used regularly.
