I was told by my son's ENT to give Rescon GG allergy/sinus

I was told by my son's ENT to give Rescon GG for his allergy/sinus problems of runny nose and congestion, in addition to taking daily Zyrtec. I was told to give him 1/2 tsp of Rescon 3x's a day, which I did for about a week and a half or so, but have been giving it to him twice a day for about 2 months or so now.My concern is that I just pulled back the label on the Rescon and read the inactive ingredients, which contain methylparaben and propylparaben, along with a few other ingredients. I've heard a lot of bad things that can happen from parabens, namely endocrine and reproductive disruption. I'm really concerned that I've done irreversible harm to my 21/2 year old son.I know most studies on parabens have been inconclusive, but can you give me any insight on this? Is he going to be okay as far as you know? (by the way, I'll be switching to another similar brand)

My friend has a 5 month old, and she won't be still. It's

My friend has a 5 month old, and she won't be still. It's strange. Even when she's being fed, she flails her hands and feet at you in a way that makes her very hard to hold. She will slap the bottle away then get mad when it moves? She just squirms constantly - so much that personally I can't stand to hold her for fear she's going to fall! I have been around new borns that did this a little bit, but should she still be so uncontrollably spastic at 5 months?

Today when my 4 year old went to potty and once he was done

Today when my 4 year old went to potty and once he was done with the poop ..he called me in saying there is blood in his poop.I was terrified at the sight of seeing blood around it.He is doing fine otherwise..he has no diarhoea or no stomach pain and eating well but just the streaks of blood around his poop was very scary for me to see.I took a picture of it and I am attaching it for review.Sorry it's gross but I am assuming it will be helpful.

My son who is 3 years old has zellweger's disease and he

Hi,My son who is 3 years old has zellweger's disease and he went through an experimental procedure of a live liver transplant where he now has half my liver (his father). The operation proved successful as the toxic metabolites in his blood went drastically down.He is now on immunosuppressant medication and lately he has been behaving like his eyes are hurting him. he keeps closing them and crying and sometimes the eyelids sowl a little bit (specially the left one).We took him to an eye doctor who said there is nothing wrong with him, we took him to a neurologist who checked his EEG during that time and said theres nothing wrong with him too.He is in so much pain and sometimes cannot open his eyes for 15 minutes straight. One doctor said it might be photophobia as its one of the side effects of the drug. But he is in so much pain even when its completely dark. Could it still be photophobia?Please help us with as much details as possibleThank you
