    There are people who says that HCQ is not effective. This is mainly because for most people, it should be given early on since it is not as effective if given at the late stages of the viral infection.

    They won’t accept hydroxychloroquine as a cure and they have stopped ongoing studies regarding the drug. They prefer waiting for the vaccine. But come to think of it, a vaccine is useless to a patient who is already infected because the vaccine would be the one to kill the patient if administered. Thus, medical practitioners should have continued their hydroxychloroquine studies since this can be administered to covid patients during the early stages of infection.

    Hi damonblase, is the rash recurring which is why you keep using it? If this is so, you might want to try an antifungal creams that are available OTC. Usually, moist areas with rashes indicates fungal infection. Ask your pharmacist for an antifungal cream that may be used for the underarm and use it as directed. If the cause of your rashes are fungi, the rash should be clearing after a few days of using the antifungal cream. If the condition does not improve, consult with your doctor or with a dermatologist for assessment and management.
    Cortisone creams are not recommended for frequent and prolonged use because this cream could thin your skin.

    Hi Brad, unfortunately, no, omeprazole used alone won’t be able to cure H. Pylori. Since it is a type of infection, you will be needing a combination of omeprazole and antibiotics to fight the infection. Consult with your doctor so they may prescribe you with an antibiotic that could help.

    Omeprazole does not cause drowsiness, btw.. =)

    Omeprazole is used to reduce the amount of acid in your stomach. It’s used to treat gastric or duodenal ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), erosive esophagitis, and hypersecretory conditions. It is also used to treat Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, a condition where the stomach produces too much acid. It is also used to treat dyspepsia, a condition that causes sour stomach, belching, heart burn, or indigestion.

    In addition, omeprazole is used to prevent upper gastrointestinal tract bleeding in seriously ill patient, and sometiems, is used in combination with antibiotics (eg, amoxicillin, clarithromycin) to treat ulcers associated with the infection caused by the H. pylori bacteria.
