  3. Dear @JohnnyDoe  Prolonged PR interval might suggest first degree heart block.  Generally treatment is not required for first-degree heart block unless PR interval is extremely prolonged(>400 ms) or rapidly evolving. Cardiac Pacing might be required for extremely prolonged PR interval. You might wish to consult a cardiologist who might recommend further investigations such as 24 hours holter monitoring or threadmill test. Hope this helps.

  6. Dear @Bachoua94  You might wish to consult your family physician and get your throat examined. Quinsy ( Peri-tonsillar abscess) can present with severe sorethroat and severe pain when eating. If you are diagnosed with this condition, intravenous antibiotics as well as incision and drainage will be required for the tonsillar abscess. Hence I suggest you seek medical attention. Hope this helps.

  8. Dear @b_itchy. You have likely correctly identified the trigger of your hive (urticaria). A skin prick test will help to identify the allergen that you are sensitive to. You might wish to consult your Family Physician/ designated workplace doctor to assist you in finding out the allergen and workplace modifications can possibly be done to reduce your exposure to the allergens.  Anti histamines such as zyrtec are safe for regular consumption and helps in treating urticaria. You might wish to take anti histamines prior to exposure of your allergens in order to prevent or reduce the severity of your urticaria. Hope this helps.

  15. Hi @Sabb I'm not sure what you mean, could you elaborate on your question? If you're asking whether there are any serious drawbacks of consuming these foods then the answer is no - they are not associated with any major health issues, and safe when consumed under normal circumstances and regular eating in moderation.
