There is a lot of "life's experience" among the members of this Community, but I think your post is a bit off-topic and suggest you try the "family medicine" Community. http://www.medhelp.
I am convinced this is an infection afterall Back in October when I went to the ER and they gave me Roxicet for the pain and no antibiotics, I dug up my old partial leftover one of Erythromycin in the medicine cabinet. I took all that was left which was only a couple days' worth, but it responded and I felt so much better. I thought I'd pretty much killed it. Then it came back last week.
Hello, Any foreign object will not stay for so long in the body without causing an infection. You need to get your hand evaluated from a dermatologist. It can be due to pompholyx, contact dermatitis or small cysts. Pompholyx primarily involves the hands and fingers and then may involve the feet. The first stage is acute and presents as itchy blisters on the hands, fingers and toes. Then the chronic stage shows more peeling, cracking, or crusting.
my 23 months old daugther constantly have painful boils from her waist down can you tell me what is or are the causes and is it a sign that some thing is wrong in her blood? I know this could not be normal.
My wife and I moved to tropical Malaysia where we usually keep the large French doors open all day allowing the wind to blow in from the garden. Most recently we've both experienced itchiness over the arms, legs and feet, almost peppery in intensity, which is relieved by washing. We can see no trace of insects, no bumps, no redness, just that intense itching in spots.
Hello, Herpetic whitlow is a viral infection. From the symptoms paronychia should be ruled out. It results from a breakdown of the protective barrier between the nail and the nail fold. Diagnosed by gram staining and KOH wet mounts from the skin and nail scrapings. Treatment includes warm water soaks of the affected finger 3-4 times per day, oral antibiotics, topical antifungals and surgical intervention in more severe cases. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist.

I don't know. I'll go to sleep. My nose feels like someone lit it on fire and put it out with a cactus. From my top lip to...I don't know. MY whole nose. It's bad. It stings and good god I need tissues though and I can't not wipe it away. ROOOOAR life is frusterating. I want to be healthy. I want my sense of taste back. I'm si[[ing orange juice becasue I can taste it for a split second at a time. I got a glassegg at the museum. forogt to mention that. Steve came voer after the museum.
I'm almost 36 years old and female. I developed anxiety and panic attacks about 2 years ago. Only during times of great stress do I have a problem with the anxiety. None of the full-time meds worked for me.....Lexapro, Paxil, etc. They made me worse and the side effects were unbearable. I've had to cope with the anxiety and panic by taking Alprazolam when I feel it coming. Recently, I've been under a great deal of stress. In April, I noticed that my very close-up vision had gotten blurry.
feels like you swallowed a cactus and its working its way down both sides from ribs to belt line. i get it under both ribs going accross. they did find h/pylori but not convinced its gone hence trying MASTIC GUM.....

He took blood for my hormones to see if there out of wack from pregnants.. Still tring to find an answer.. I am also trying something new that I saw on tv Prickly pear cactus..
They turned to ulcers and healed had them 4 days. No sensatons prior to them. I had rough sex from a huge body bulder guy he was huge and never had that before in my life and he wore a latex condom, so the rubbing was intense hurt and plus he stretched me badly and I wasnt lubed well at all mostly dry.
09 and I have been living with an open fistula now for 4 months, and it drains constantly. I am on antibiotics, but the inflammation and pain from the fistula is unbearable and I am brought to tears from the pain. I was diagnosed with Crohn's 2 months ago. My GI Dr.
So went to dermatologist. Dermatologist said contact dermatitis from cactus like plant in AZ. Dermatologist prescribed: Fluocinonide .05% Ointment. She said just put a little on bumps twice a day for 2 weeks. And Cephalexin 500 mg capsule. 1/day for 2 weeks. It did not clear up totally, as a matter of fact they were starting to fade when I saw that dermatologist so I am not sure if her prescriptions did anything. Today it is August and I still get them.
Isnt it amazing how some people are SO symptomatic and yet others arent? I know I am like you...if my TSH goes higher than 2.5, I am in a lot of pain with aches. Yet others can go through everything and not feel that achy feeling. Ask the chemist is there is steralate talc in the formula. Once I got off that (generic brand T4) I was fine.
After the third episode, I saw an infectious disease specialist who thought that the antibiotics were working, but I just keep getting re-infected. My thoughts are that they are not actually killing the infection, but just knocking it down to where it goes away for a limited amount of time. Does anyone have any experience in this? I know that I could step up to vancomycin (sp?
To make sure nothing else is going on, I would make an appointment with your doctor, just to make sure you don't have a bladder infection..but as in my case, it wasn't. Besides, I don't think you would have the lack of sensation with a bladder infection, but I thought I should at least throw that out there My bladder issues was a new and annoying symptom that has stuck with me since last year. Thank God, it doesn't happen all the time. Just a couple a times a month.
Just like if you were trying to pump fluid through a resistant pipe. Fluid from your blood is being pushed into your cells and extracellular space from this resistance. This is what is causing your swelling and weight gain. If you smoke or drink at the present time, you should stop. This is by far, hands-down the best way to relieve symptoms. Back to the point. You are likely on several heart medications. The diuretics for your blood pressure, and more medications for your arrhythmia.
FYI -The kind of infection like your fingertip infection can occurs with Lyme disease because immune system is in tiolet, making a person vunerable to anything she/he come in contact with. I had skin staph infection from time to time.
Sides pretty good except anal problems. Started out getting tender, burning and itching from bowel movements. Then became like voiding sharred glass. Boy is that painful. Dr. prescribed ProctoFoam. Helped some. Hemmroids are growing and I am now bleeding after intense and frequent bowel movements. Not bleeding like bleeding but traces on tissue and in bowel etc probably from anal fissures. So, has anyone experienced similar anal issues and what are you doing for it.
However, it is difficult to predict the kind of health effects that might develop from that exposure. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
If you have political or ethical reasons for not eating meat then I would suggest going the vitamin route and would encourage you to eat organic dairy products from farms which are freerange if this would make you feel better. If you don't eat animal products for health issues there are many organic meta products out there which are free of antibiotics, growth hormones etc. For some more info go to www.mercola.com to get some better diet tips.
Maybe I am parsing words, but I would like to know if there is a difference. Part of my question from that is whether or not that has anything to do with occult infection or not. Again, maybe I am just parsing words.
I was wondering if it wouldn't be a good idea to create a spreadsheet where all posters could include significant data as age, time of infection, nick, gender, stage, VL, TX, SVR, alcohol/drug use, etc so we could build a small database to see if there's a correlation between age & sx & symptoms..etc. Just for us...I know is not scientific enough, but if it's done properly and saved as an .csv file it could be exported into a database program for further analisys. Shoot...
Most likely your symptoms could be due to peripheral neuropathy such as injury to a nerve, pressure on spinal/peripheral nerves (neuropathy),diabetic or alcoholic neuropathy, vitamin deficiency ( esp. Vitamin B12, lack of blood supply due to cholesterol plaque from atherosclerosis in the extremities, viral infection and use of certain medications. Please consult your doctor to get all these possibilities evaluation in your case for further assessment. Hope this helps.
This only happens once every 2 weeks or so, and I've had it from sex and masterbation. This pain will happen anywhere from 5 min to 30 min after I ejaculate, and the pain will stop temporarily when I urinate, sometimes when I urinate it even feels good. This also causes me to feel like I constantly have to urinate. This pain always disappears after an hour or two, and never happens unless I ejaculate.
30am and then at 2pm I've got our house warming party scheduled so I'm gonna be relying on my hubby and MIL and sis to help out and today I'm picking up a script for Nucynta 100mg so that I'll have some back-up against the extra pain from the injections. Later on after my appointment I'll post an update on things.
