Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar f tn I have not heard about the ammonia in the washing machine, but I'm positive they mean to use it in a wash cycle entirely alone, probably with hot water, prior to washing any clothes. Like a disinfectant. I started packing my bag at 32 weeks. I'm not quite finished but you can start any time you'd like.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Detergent concentrations as low as 5 ppm will kill fish eggs. Surfactant detergents are implicated in decreasing the breeding ability of aquatic organisms. Detergents also add another problem for aquatic life by lowering the surface tension of the water. Organic chemicals such as pesticides and phenols are then much more easily absorbed by the fish.

Avatar m tn This then leaves the blood uncleaned of harmful substances, including ammonia. The function of the liver to convert ammonia in blood may also be decreased in liver disease. Ammonia and other harmful substances may go into the brain and damage brain cells. This may affect many of the brain's important functions that could cause even more problems to your body.
Avatar f tn If I need to, I can get in to see my doctor that very day - and if it's an emergency and there aren't any openings, they'll work you in between appointments. If your regular doctor's not in, there's always someone on call to cover his/her emergency appts. Over the years I've seen most of the doctors in that office, and are all exceptional. And best of all, you really feel cared for.
Avatar f tn Fresh sheets weekly. Clean detergents. No softners. Hes gonna be in bed more than ever now so keep that area decent. His immune system is taking a huge hit, so you need to know allergies, pollens, dust may effect him more than before. A common cold can go awry quickly. He has less good stuff in him to fight off the bad stuff now. If theres a TV in the bedroom, rent his favorite movies. Laughing is so healthy for the body and mind.
541196 tn?1293556536 Over months time it got worse and he has begun urinating in the dog's food bowl, on our kitchen counter top and on curtains. He poo's in the corner in the office. He won't go downstairs and use the boxes anymore at all. I don't know how to stop this behavior. I thought that having Henry (the newest) gone for a few days at the vet getting neutered and declawed would help the situation and when he returned he hasn't been playing much due to his feet being sore.
Avatar f tn Around 24 hours later, my eyelids started to get itchy. In the matter of 20 minutes, they had become very swollen. The next day when I woke up, they were SO swollen I could not see a thing. My lips wre also a bit swollen as well as my throat. I was totally disfigured and stayed this way for 3 days! HORROR!!... Have I suddenly become allergic to the PPD contained in most colorants? Has anybody suffered such a reaction?
Avatar n tn I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I take baths in ammonia, borax and Dr. Bronners peppermint soap in my bath water. This has helped the most. I either steam iron or boil my clothes, towels and sheets. I drink a glass of red wine every night before going to bed. Theses are the things that have helped me get them down to almost nothing. I hope this helps. I've just opened a facebook page just for discussion on these bugs, life, support, etc. My name there is bugedout thugbugs.
Avatar f tn air and couldn't go back in. It was January, I was in my nightgown, standing in snow trying not to hurl. I ended up sitting in the car for about an hour until she aired her house out. And even then I could still smell it. I got dressed quickly and left. I never stayed at their house again after that when we visited. It was that powerful. I think there might be some sort of genetic link, my 4 year old daughter is the same way. She smells EVERYTHING. poor kid.
Avatar n tn I've been looking for a site to explain the same cravings you are having - I myself have been a strict veg 5yrs ago - anemic - now just eat healthy without meat/pasta accept chx/fish/shellfish - I walk in a ceramic pottery warehouse and go nuts - I eat this natural gum 5-8 times a day called peelu dental gum - it gives me that hint taste of cement.
Avatar n tn They also follow me to work,and I have them in my office too. Then when I go to another person's office, they follow me in there too. So essentially it's me they are after. There is no food or fruit anywhere,and I do not wear cologne. I have not done anything different from when they were not constantly around me. I am not sure why they are around me, but as you can see, it has become a problem. Does anyone have any ideas?
Avatar n tn I need to get in touch with people who think that other people might be allergic to them or people who think/know they have bad body odor. Please email me: samantha.
Avatar n tn And I dn't believe it's Kundalini rising - it's not a sensation going up and down my spine. It's in a 1 inch radius in the same spot on my back. In any case, this posting has helped me because I now feel a little bit better that I'm not paranoid and making this up. I'll make sure I go see a doc.
Avatar m tn A crawling sensation in skin is seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Very dry skin (you rule this out) and disorders of thyroid gland all can precipitate a crawling sensation. The other possibility is Morgellons disease often mimics scabies. The disease is believed to be caused by weak immune systems in people that have contracted the tick-borne Lyme Disease at some point in their life. It can also be a fungal infection like Tinea corporis.
Avatar m tn One thing I think a lot of you are missing that's important. YOU are the host, @LGAMMA1 mentioned how they are so small you need a good microscope to see them. Now, if that's true, are they not small enough to enter your pours? How small must their eggs be? The eggs, the parasite, it's using your body as it's host. 90% of them in your environment are "hatched" from your body. When you move several times and get rid of everything this quickly become obvious.
Avatar n tn I have found a way to stop the smell. After I was downthere in the shower, I take white vingar and put in a cup and then put some water with it and then rinse down there. You know it works. Plus I put just reagular deorant on there as well.
Avatar f tn You see, it's the Ammonia that is in the Windex (which is the same ingredient in those Anti-Itch sticks for bug bites) that helps. It will "sting" a little at first (it's the ammonia that is killing bacteria) but it will stop the itch for a while! At night, take Benadryl about an hour before you want to go to sleep. It will knock you right out! I don't think that there is a permanent solution to our predicament, but I tell you, Windex/Ammonia is a great quick/useful fix!
Avatar n tn Within a few minutes of entering a room, people begin coughing and/or sneezing.(By the way, it's always 2 coughs in a row.) I am not sick at all but everyone around me becomes sick upon meeting me. Doctors have told me that it's just allergy season, but this has been going on for a couple years! Besides the endless coughing and sneezing, other symptoms that people develop include: itching around the eyes and nose, acne (on face and neck), sores on the outer lips, and fatigue.
Avatar n tn my eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
