Avatar f tn Once you already have cold symptoms vitamin C will not help. Vitamin C only boosts your immune system and works to prevent a cold. One you are already sick the best thing to take is Zinc. There is something in Zinc that inhibits viral reproduction so if taken early enough (when you first show symptoms) it can shorten your cold!
1642731 tn?1300839984 Hi, I've been having this trouble for over a year now! I absolutely love citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, and grapefruit. But last year when I drank some orange juice, after I had a bad head cold, I could taste the flavor of what I thought was just the orange in the back of my throat still up near my nose. I told my wonderful mom and she said it was just nasal drip so I continued to eat and drink those lovely citrus fruits.
Avatar n tn Hello, You may take Vitamin C along with the prescribed antiallergy treatment. Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy supplement. It helps stabilize mast cells so they are less likely to release histamine.So it can be used for prevention and treatment of allergies. I hope that helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
Avatar m tn isoleucine and valine) omega-3 oils, natural vitamin E AND all of the vitamins and minerals The phospholipids, branched-chain amino acids, vitamin C and omega-3-oils heal the holes in the intestinal wall. Because the entire lining of the gut is replaced every 14 days, healing can occur rapidly when you provide your body with all of the necessary nutrients. Some have noted that food allergies generally disappear once the intestinal lining is repaired.
Avatar n tn In this case chapped lips could be due to contact dermatitis due to the lips coming in contact with something. A vitamin B and vitamin C deficiency too can cause chapped lips. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn So, it started 2 days ago with clearly my throat, slight cough. Then it turned consistent cough and sinus pressure. Thankfully it was fall break from school so I had two days off. The first day I slept till 6 o'clock at night from falling asleep at 8 o'clock the night before. I woke up with a painful headache and sinus pressure in my face. I was congested with a mild fever, so I went on the attack.
Avatar n tn ve been taking antihistamines and vitamin c as well as using the calamine lotion; and the rash has been doing a little better. it has stopped spreading and is starting to heal up a little bit. It does flare up a little when i sweat, but other than that i'm doing fine.
Avatar f tn They can also be caused by to much vitamI'm C or ascorbic acid. I found that less vitamin C stopped the soars. Also stress can cause the soars. We are all different but if you are eating alot of vitamin C tablets or taking vitamins with C taking small amounts of C may help. I have been told that the problem does stem from having Chicken Pox early in life. It leaves a virus that never leaves your system.
Avatar n tn He still isn't feeling much better and he is taking 50,000IU of vitamin d one time a week for the next 6 weeks. This was given as a prescription. All his blood work is so far fine. Does anyone know how long it takes for the vitamin d to start working and he should start feeling better? Also, is the insomnia related to his vitamin d low level? Any help out there would be so much appreciated! Thanks again to everyone.
Avatar m tn Vitamin A wards off a variety of fungus including warts and other annoying fungal troubles. Mix lemon and orange juice into the juice mixture for high vitamin C levels...also cabbage is high in vitamin C. Eat sensibly and feel better my friend.
2078979 tn?1332206668 If you perfer natural remedies, chamomile tea, vapor rub, hot chicken broth with a little cheyenne, lots of fruits and veggies-especially vitamin c. Netti pots work great for sinus problems, just make sure to use distilled water.
Avatar f tn The most likely triggers for acute urticaria are allergies to pets, horses, latex and foods, such as shellfish and nuts,bee or wasp stings,allergies to medicines,Viral infections, such as glandular fever and herpes, dental and sinus infections, fungal infections, blood transfusions and vaccines. In your case the bee sting can be responsible for these hives. The mainstay of treatment of hives is antihistamine which may be necessary for prolonged periods (in excess of 6 weeks).
Avatar f tn Today my eyes are dry, swollen itching and just plain lovely to look at. I have been taking my vitamin C also but just wondered if anyone else has any advice.
535822 tn?1443976780 It's a very tough year for tree pollen, I'm having trouble, too. What I use is the homeopathic tree pollen formula by BioAllers (same co. as Natra Bio), homeopathic allergy pills by both A. Vogel (Bioforce) and Heel (BHI). Natural histamines I use are freeze dried nettle leaf from Eclectic Institute and Bromelain, quercitin, and Vitamin C combo from Nature's Life, but Source Naturals also makes a very good one, it's just more expensive.
Avatar m tn liposomal vitamin c works like anti allergy drugs and end of normal vit d levels (90-100ng/ml) make allergies almost non existant.
Avatar f tn It sounds more like allergies than a cold, maybe even chronic sinusitis. I would get allergy testing done and try antihistamines instead of cold meds. Vitamin C with Quercitin and bromelain are great natural antihistamines, I prefer liquid natural treatments. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn You may take Vitamin C along with the prescribed treatment. Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy supplement. Also apply calamine lotion and a mild steroid cream like dermacort on the rash. Also use cotton clothes and change the clothes twice if there is any increased sweating. If the symptoms persist then pls consult a dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and keep me posted Kind Regards.
Avatar m tn ) and also blood testing for allergies. My allergies are out of control and have been for about 10 months. So, everything was normal, no new allergies, but hypothyroid. So, for me, whether it is just timing or my allergies are more noticeable because of a thyroid disorder, who knows? I've have also read articles suggesting that allergies can be triggered or exacerbated as women near menopause; I'm 48 btw.
