  • To Live a Long, Healthy Life

    Friends and relatives often ask me my recommendations for a healthy life. I have been a physician for 45 years, an internist, and infectious disease specialist. This is a list of my health recommendations:...

  • If my daughter has a viral infection, why did the doctor prescribe antibiotics?

    If the situation is exactly as you state, then I agree you should look for a new pediatrician. Antibiotics are generally used to treat bacterial infections. Anti-viral meds are used to treat various viral infections but not common upper respiratory infections. Unnecessary antibiotics can be expensive, cause toxicity and side effects. They can also lead to colonization and spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria. READ MORE

  • Can a shingles infection come on the buttocks and thighs?

    Yes, you can get Shingles (Varicella Zoster) infection in any dermatonal distribution. L5, S1, and S2 dermatones involve the buttocks and lateral to posterior thighs. READ MORE

  • I suddenly have pus filled pimples around my underarms. What is it?

    Sounds like you have folliculitis or furunculosis. This can be treated by your family physician with hot soaks and oral antibiotics. READ MORE

  • What is the way to treat antibiotic-resistant bacteria?

    Many bacteria are resistant to some antibiotics. Some bacteria are MDR/ multi-drug resistant. Even these MDR bacteria are usually sensitive to some antibiotics that can be used for treatment. READ MORE

  • Is chicken pox really something you need a vaccine for?

    Yes! Chicken Pox can be complicated by bacterial skin infections up to and including Streptococcal toxic shock syndrome and necrotizing fasciitis as well as meningitis, encephalitis, hepatitis, pneumonia and death. Do you want to risk these for your child when it is a vaccine preventable disease? READ MORE

  • Zika virus?

    The news cycle sensationalizes a disease then forgets about it. Zika virus is still alive and well and widely distributed. If you are planning to travel or live where Zika is present, learn mosquito bite prevention practices. If you are pregnant or attempting to get pregnant, avoid travel to areas where Zika is transmitted. READ MORE

  • Should I get a flu shot?

    Unless you never leave your house and never allow visitors you are still at risk of contracting influenza. Don’t be one of the foolish 40% of Americans who fail to immunize themselves each year. READ MORE

  • Diseases in Africa

    There are many-travelers diarrhea, Malaria, Yellow Fever, Dengue, Hepatitis and Typhoid fever are just a few. Consult a travel clinic for necessary vaccinations and preventative antibiotics. READ MORE

  • Is there a cure for HIV?

    There is no cure but there is highly effective treatment that should be started as soon as possible after infection. Have him see an infectious disease specialist ASAP. READ MORE

  • When is the best time to get a flu shot?

    Late September or early October is the best time if you live in the Northern Hemisphere. It takes about 2 weeks after vaccination until protection begins. READ MORE

  • Is the zika virus infectious?

    Zika is spread from person to person through mosquito bites and sexual exposure. It is spread from mother to child in- utero. If you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant avoid traveling to any country where Zika virus is being transmitted. READ MORE

  • What causes cold sores in a person?

    Cold sores are called see by Herpes Simplex Virus I. It is spread by kissing an infected person. Once infected you remain infected in the nerves supplying the lips for life. The lip cold sores can recur throughout life. READ MORE

  • Is there a natural treatment for strep throat in kids?

    No. If your son is allergic to penicillin he should not be treated with amoxicillin. He could be treated with an erythromycin, clindamycin or if not a type I hypersensitivity reaction to penicillin, a cephalosporin. Failure to treat him risks suppurative complications, glomulerulonephritis and rheumatic fever. READ MORE

  • Does dengue virus spread from one person to another?

    Dengue is only spread person to person by a mosquito bite. The main preventive measures are by mosquito bite prevention- insect repellent, night netting and not going out from dusk to dawn. There is a new Dengue vaccine but it may increase risks of severe Dengue disease and I would avoid it until the risks and benefits are better defined. READ MORE

  • What is the treatment for sepsis?

    Sepsis is a general term for infection with systemic symptoms. Bacterial infections that cause sepsis can be community acquired. READ MORE

  • Does a cold sore mean herpes?

    No. Cold sores caused by Herpes Simplex Virus I are spread by direct contact with a lesion or a Herpes carrier usually by kissing. READ MORE

  • Can a viral cold and cough be treated without antibiotics?

    Viral upper respiratory infections (URI’s/colds) are caused by a variety of viruses. They should never be treated with antibiotics that are only effective against bacteria, not viruses. Antiviral drugs are not recommended for URI’s as they are uniformly self- limited. If her doctor always treats viral URI’s with antibiotics, find a new doctor. READ MORE

  • My father's wound test detected E.coli bacteria. Is it fatal?

    No. A leg wound infection should not be fatal. Be sure all pus is drained and that any dead tissue is debrided. Make sure that the E. coli is the only organism in the culture and that an anaerobic culture has also been done. Make sure that the E. coli and any other cultured bacteria are susceptible to the antibiotic chosen for treatment and that it is given in the proper dosage. READ MORE

  • Is herpes cold sores an infectious disease?

    Cold sores are caused by Herper Simplex I virus. It is spread by direct contact, so your husband should avoid kissing anyone when there are visible lesions. Virus is present in 5% of infected people even when no lesions are visible so he should always be cautious. READ MORE

  • About meningitis

    You should make sure that your Aunt has been seen by an infectious disease specialist and by a neurologist. If the doctors think she might have a treatable pathogen causing meningitis empirical therapy should be started pending diagnostic studies. READ MORE

  • Can pigeons carry pneumonia?

    Pigeons don’t carry pneumonia. They and many other birds can carry Chlamydia psittaci, a bacteria that when inhaled can cause pneumonia. The diagnosis is usually made by serology or DNA based PCR assays. The diagnosis cannot he made without laboratory testing. Tetracyclines and Erythromycins (Macrolides) are the usual treatment. READ MORE

  • Is malaria an infectious disease?

    Was your husband in an area of the world that has malaria transmission? If he is infected your son could only be infected from your husband if he was bitten by a mosquito that had previously bitten your husband. If your husband is at risk for malaria and has fever or chills he should be immediately seen by an infectious disease specialist through your local ER and hospital. READ MORE
