The Towson football team has been playing with fire, and coach Rob Ambrose knows it. The team has turned the ball over a total of six times in the first quarters of each of the past three games, and opponents have taken advantage by running up a 55-9 advantage. The No. 3 Tigers (6-1 overall and 2-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association) managed to defeat Stony Brook, 35-21, on Sept. 28 and then-No. 19 New Hampshire, 44-28, on Oct. 5, but fell to No. 15 Villanova, 45-35, Saturday night.

My 10-year old developed a bad cold with fever and a hard cough last week. In general, he seems better, but he is still coughing. Now he says his chest hurts. Should I be worried?If your son's chest hurts only when he coughs, the pain is probably due to sore chest and abdominal muscles. Coughing is hard work. It can put extra strain on muscles not used to working so hard, just as starting a new sport or exercise program might.Make yourself cough as you read this, and feel how much more deeply you inhale and how much more forcefully your chest and abdominal muscles move in than they do during a normal breath.

The school sent home a letter informing parents to keep an eye out for symptoms of the disease, which include a low fever, runny nose, vomiting and a distinctive cough...

Baltimore Health Commissioner Dr. Joshua Sharfstein and 15 other experts petitioned the U.S. Food and Drug Administration yesterday to tell the public that over-the-counter cough and cold remedies are ineffective and potentially dangerous for young children. As many as 900 Maryland children younger than 5 overdosed on the medications in 2004, the petition states. The deaths of at least four children in Baltimore have been linked to unintentional overdoses in the last six years. "Over-the-counter cough and cold preparations are neither safe nor effective for use in young children," the petitioners argue.

Q: Every time I clean my baby's ears, he coughs. Why? This may not be very important, but it's something I'm wondering about.A: A cough is the result of a complicated reflex that can start in a number of sites in the upper body, including the ear canal. Most coughs are triggered by receptors (sensing stations) in the lining of the throat or air passages. A receptor sends a message to the cough center in the brain, which sends out the many signals necessary to create a cough. The cough may clear air pathways of mucous or other obstructions.

When I was in Europe last month, I caught a cold and developed an awful cough. Luckily, a German pharmacist understood my sign language and sold me a miracle cure that cleared it up in a few days. The medicine is Makatussin, and it contains "Thymianfluid-extrakt" and "Sternanisol." It comes as drops to be put on a sugar cube or in tea. It worked so much better than my regular cough medicine that I would like to find something similar here. Is there a medicine like it? Makatussin contains extract of thyme and star anise oil. The German government has approved both herbs for colds and coughs.

I went to my physician when I had a really bad cold with a cough and asked her what over-the-counter cough medicine I should buy. She told me: "None! Get some vanilla ice cream and pour Kahlua over it." Do you know what? That's the best cough medicine I have ever had. I've told my family and friends about it, and they all agree. Your doctor's advice certainly sounds original. We have no doubt that ice cream, with or without Kahlua, tastes a lot better than cough medicine with dextromethorphan.

Joining other retailers and chain pharmacies, Giant Food announced yesterday that it won't sell certain types of cough medicine to customers under 18 because the products have been abused by teenagers. Beginning Sunday, Giant and other grocery chains owned by Royal Ahold NV will limit sales of products containing dextromethorphan (DXM), a common ingredient in cough and cold syrups, lozenges and pills. "It's similar to buying cigarettes - if the cashier has a question, we will ask for verification," said Jamie Miller, manager of public affairs for Landover-based Giant Food Inc., which has 186 supermarkets in Maryland and nearby states.

A federal drug advisory panel concluded yesterday that over-the-counter cough and cold remedies should not be given to children under 6 because of safety concerns, and found no evidence that the remedies are even effective in children under 12. The panel recommended that the Food and Drug Administration prohibit drug makers from marketing the formulations to children under 6 and require that they change the wording on labels from "Consult a Physician" to...

As children, our parents take us to the doctor every year, like clockwork. As we get older, regular checkups often fall by the wayside. But they shouldn't. For adults, checkups, preventative screenings and vaccinations are vital to living healthy, happy lives. According to Dr. Carolyn Bridges, associate director for adult immunization at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, numerous screening procedures and vaccines are available to adults, but they are often underused. "National vaccination rates are low," she says, "even for vaccines that have been recommended for many years.

Public health officials are warning adults and adolescents to get booster shots in the wake of an unusually large number of cases of whooping cough this year around the nation and in Maryland. More than 20,000 cases of the respiratory disease were reported in the first seven months of the year in the United States, almost 21/2 times the number in all of last year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency says there are likely many more cases that are not reported.

You know the story about William Faulkner at the Oxford, Mississippi, post office, don't you? Sacked for sitting in the back reading the magazines instead of waiting on customers, he said, "Good, now I won't be at the beck and call of every son of a bitch that's got two cents.

Maryland's children would be required to get more vaccines before attending school under a proposal being considered by state health officials. But doctors and state health officials said most children are already getting the shots and that they are looking to regulate the process. Under the proposed guidelines, pupils would be required to get a chicken pox booster before starting kindergarten. The chicken pox vaccine is now required to be given to babies. Seventh-graders would be required to get the Tdap vaccine, which protects against tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough.

Question: : I started taking lisinopril for high blood pressure in December. Soon after, I developed a nagging dry cough that wouldn't stop. I have thrown up because the coughing was so bad. I also have had blood tests and chest X-rays. They all came back negative. In desperation, I went to an ear, nose and throat specialist, who told me this kind of cough is common in people my age (50) due to postnasal drip. He knew I was on lisinopril but gave me an antihistamine and cough suppressant.

In a move sought by Baltimore health officials, federal regulators said yesterday that independent experts will hold hearings to evaluate safety concerns about cough and cold remedies for young children. The announcement comes months after the city health commissioner and other experts petitioned the Food and Drug Administration to prohibit drugmakers from marketing the remedies for infants and to require warning labels stating the products "have not been found to be safe or effective" for children under 6. Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein, the health commissioner, said the FDA's decision to conduct two days of advisory panel hearings in October shows the agency is "taking the issue seriously."
