I haven't been to the dentist in four years. Yes, I know, BAD. I finally scheduled an appointment for Monday, but the gums below my lower front teeth are of sore and inflamed at the moment - which is basically what prompted me to finally get over myself and schedule the appointment. YANMDentist, but does anyone have any suggestions for what I can do between now and Monday to calm my gums down? [more inside]

What (if any) household items are there that can help in the early stage of an outer ear infection (not just the pain, but the infection itself)? [more inside]

For the past couple days, when I have been brushing my teeth, my gums have bled. The Internet is promising me DOOM to my mouth if I don't shape up, but I can't find much on everything specific that I should be doing. Help me help my gums. [more inside]

Every August the 15th my mom used to come down with a terrible case of seasonal asthma. Back in the 50's people used to do a lot of home doctoring so to try to survive these attacks she used to get a product from the local drugstore called "Asthmadora" which she would burn in a saucer and inhale in a closed room. She would feel better after several days of lying in a dark room and breathing the Asthmadora air with labored breaths.
I always thought it was an unusual product (smelled like marijuana) as the sweet, ashy smell was fairly potent and had an unforgettable scent.
As a small child I was scared when mom was sick and anxious for her to hurry up and get better so I was glad when the Asthmadora was burning as it helped her condition.
I have since "googled" this product and 'can't come up with anything. Am I the only person out there who remembers it?
