when you open your mouth and open your throat up, it is very common for your eustachian tubes which drain fluid out from your inner ears to open up.

that is normal.

i should hear popping sounds all the time?
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

I hear popping sounds all the time when I open up my throat and mouth wide

this opens up your eustachian tube

which helps drain fluid out of your inner ear.

this is often normal

ok now on another level why do antibiotics cause severe diarrhea to the stomach and how can i stop this? would probiotics help me.
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

antibiotics kill the good bacteria in your bowels which can cause you to have diarrhea.

antibiotics often can upset your stomach so it is best to be taken with a full stomach

taking a probiotic pill and eating plenty of yogurt during your course of antibiotics can help add good bacteria into your bowels to help prevent diarrhea from antibitoics.

this has been studied.

ok know can you tell me why my skin turn red and cracky in the hand area when its cold outside? I use derma lotions and all but is not helping me. this type of weird skin condition i have has been going on for years now. what can this be? by the way i wash my hands like surgeons do very often.
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

in the winter, the air is much more dry which can lead to dry and cracked skin

you could have bad skin eczema or psoriasis of your hands.

can you upload a photo of your hands?

you may need to see a dermatologist and skin testing and skin biopsy for a diagnosis for proper treatment.
