    Cold water sensitivity is common in many people and may be secondary to wearing of the enamel, cavity and loose teeth. Can be due to improper toothbrushing, clenching and grinding of teeth or acid erosion. You can prevent by getting a toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth, reduce consumption of sugars and acidic food. Take paracetamol tablets only when you get the pain, if it persists, pls see a Dentist.

    You have some for sensitive teeth. A lot of products like sensodyne, Colgate is on the market. Pick one that you like. Brush properly too, be careful about putting a lot of force on the gums as this can erode them. Take care

    Yes it is good you brush the surface of the tongue. It has this whitish coating that contains bacteria that can cause infection. Take care

    Do you have high blood pressure? You should see your Doctor for proper evaluation. Eat healthy, more fruits and vegetables and lean meat. Exercise regularly and get enough sleep. Take care

    hello doc, I'm feeling a bit feverish. can I use Amalar to prevent malaria?

    Hello sir. I will advise you get tested for malarial parasite before you use antimalarial. Amalar is not a complete drug you wll need to use something else to complete the dose. Also fever may be due to flu or cold too. Please see your Doctor to get tested and treated appropriately. Take care
