With humor and friendliness, leading pharmacist Lisa Chavis has compiled a home health reference that every family must have. Her objective is to provide consumers with easy-to-understand answers to their most frequently asked health-care questions. Ask Your Pharmacist gives readers the inside scoop on which products really work, as well as the best remedies for common ailments, and it cheerfully answers those embarrassing questions you'd rather not ask in person. The book's chapters each deal with a specific area of health: women's, men's, babies', teens' and more. And each entry explains what the problem is, why it occurs, and how it's treated with prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, or herbal remedies.

Learn what to do for:
ADHD * Allergies * Asthma * Athletic Injuries * Backache * Bad Breath * Bee Stings * BPH * Bunions * Cataracts * Chicken Pox * Cold and Cough * Constipation * Corns/Calluses * Dandruff * Diaper Rash * Diarrhea * Earaches * Excessive Hair * Fever * Fibromyalgia * Gas * Headache * Hives * Insomnia * Migraine * Nausea and Vomiting * Osteoarthritis * Rheumatoid Arthritis * Shingles * Sinusitis * Sore Throats * Sprains and Strains * Tinnitus * Toothache * Varicose Veins...and much, much more!

Special appendixes round out the book with information for readers on:

How to create a family first-aid kit, what to keep on hand when bringing home a new baby, additional resources to go to for help, and a glossary to help readers make sense of "pharmacy speak."
