More Information: Children's OTC Medicine Recall

Some of the medicines affected by the recall include liquid versions of Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl. For a complete list of the recalled medicines, click here.

The FDA is advising parents to discontinue use of these products. Generic versions of the medications are not affected by the recall. If a child has taken any of the recalled medicines and is exhibiting unexpected symptoms, parents, guardians or caregivers should contact a doctor and report the incident to the FDA. Parents, guardians or caregivers who are uncertain about alternative treatments to the recalled medicines should also contact a physician.

The products were not recalled on "the basis of adverse medical events," but rather what federal regulators identified as "manufacturing deficiencies" that resulted in products not meeting "quality standards." The start date of these "manufacturing deficiencies" has not yet been identified. The recall affects hundreds of thousands of bottles of medicine in homes and on store shelves across the US and internationally.

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
