Avatar f tn I am going to have a biopsy to verify that it is eczema. I have a history of eczema in other parts of my body. The only thing that ever worked for me was hydrocortizone in a cream form. The petroleum based textures (ointments) never worked for me even if the hydrocortizone dosage was the same. Prescription topicals never worked either.

Avatar n tn Bananas can cause hives, in part due to the latex-like substance in the plant. Finally, stress causes flare-ups, too. The reason all of this happens is a vicious cycle of inflammation causing a condition that causes inflammation that causes a condition, which may cause a secondary condition.
Avatar f tn I vowed to make an appointment with the doctor the next day, but looked up causes of arrhythmias that day out of curiousity. That is when I tripped on histamines as an issue associated with several things I had going on. Here's the happy news. There is a solution that has been working for me since then.
Avatar n tn Some people are allergic when swimming in chlroinated water in a pool ? I am trying to think of allergins least thought of that would pose physical contact and react in such a violent way. Formeldahyde is another .. a chemical used in fabric .. causese severe sunburn rash in my daughter! Used in mobile type homes and some furniture. Of course mold is an allergin but usually asthma.
Avatar m tn Hi, To keep the story short I currently have quite frequent episodes of redness in the cheeks only - this has been occuring since about November 2008 ( I started sixth form in September) and has kind of gotten worse in the sense the redness in the cheeks was at first very vague but has now gotten more prominent. The redness in the cheeks coincided with my first spot(s) which where whiteheads e.t.c commonly associated with puberty i.e 16-18 years old.
Avatar n tn The lack of magnesium causes problems with microcirculation and causes the blood vessels in the hands and feet to restrict - according to my GP. If you suffer from cold hands and feet it could well be this and supplementation with magnesium could help. It can also be caused by undiagnosed celiac disease. I've also heard that it's apparent in about 15% of people with CFS/ME.

Avatar n tn I have yet to find a definite answer, though I have had my hormones tested and discovered all of my hormones are out of balance. I'm in the process of trying bioidentical hormone replacement to see if that helps. Hope you find some answers.

Avatar n tn He still has HUGE temper tantrums, including hitting and kicking, and does not respond well to anything, discipline or love, when he's in the midst of a tantrum. I have done a small amount of reading on ODD and I think he shows a majority of the symptoms. The only catch is that he seems to be a perfect child (mostly) in public. He's not a behavior problem in school and he has many friends, though I have noticed he tends to be bossy.
Avatar n tn The essential cause of this disorder is thus bacterial. However, several factors predispose the growth of bacteria in hair follicles. Toxic condition in blood stream - Of these, the chief factor is a toxic condition in the blood stream, which is due to a faulty diet and a frenetic pace of living. Boils generally appear when a person is in a run-down and devitalised condition.
Avatar n tn I also experience these weird pains in my head that come for about a second and then go and come back again every 10minutes or so. These pains are in 1 area in the back of my head in about a 1 square inch area.. Any ideas???
Avatar n tn Possibilities include eczema (which causes blisters, especially in kids) and contact allergy, perhaps to antibiotic cream. This no longer sounds serious, but obviously needs the care of a skin doctor, especially one who works a lot with kids. Best. Dr.
Avatar f tn I have a large tattoo on my leg with a red flower in the middle of it. There are many different colors in this tattoo but only that red is giving me the problem. I've had this tattoo for years without any problems and now that one flower is pretty much ruined. I started out using neosporin and that did not work. My doctor then had me try Lotrimen cream. That seemed to help with the iching for a few days but it always comes back. I'm going to have him send me to a dematoligist.
Avatar n tn I do notice that it tends to itch a little bit more in the lower half of my body. I noticed most of the time it happens in the evenings or when I am lying in my bed. I thought it might have been bedbugs or mites or something so I tried washing all my sheets, blankets, pillows. That didn't work so next I switched all the sheets, blankets, pillows, etc. Still was happening, so i switched mattresses with my father and its still itchy.
Avatar n tn Yes, I need to know if any of you came up with a diagnosis. My son at the age of 3 started complaing of back pain only in the car seat. We had switched to a booster to see if that helps, it doesn't. We have had x-rays only. It has been 7 months since he started complaing . It;s only in the car seat though, so I don't know how serious I should take it.
Avatar n tn My mom always used to say that when ur body fills up with extra fluids due to increase of hormones some may fill up in your lungs. Therefore I believe we feel like we are breathing in a tank of water. We should just bare in mind that it is a major discomfort but we still breath normal. And it does go away when we start our flow, Best way to deal with it is just to distract yourself do something that makes you laugh.
Avatar m tn The widespread antibody response may destroy healthy cells causing autoimmune diseases such as vitiligo. The malabsorption of food also causes deficiency of vitamins such as vitamin B’s and minerals such as zinc and cooper.
Avatar n tn Some of the symptoms sounds like what she has, but we noticed her getting fevers every month at around 10 months. In one of the articles it said it usualy starts at about 2yr. and up. will ask her doctor about this.
Avatar n tn I have a layer of skin on the back of my head which creates a crease in the back of my head I wonder if there is a reason why this happens or what i could to do to get it removed. This layer of skin in the back of my head I really do not like and wish for it to go away. Every time I get a short hair cut it is very visible, however when i have long hair its not. Please message if you have any information about this i would really like and want to know.
Avatar n tn My symtoms seem to migrate and alternate - a few days of warm sensations in legs and then a few days of left side headache. Very weird. My neuro doesn't have a clue (said its likely stress). I'm on antidepressent but doesn't seem to help anything. Has anyone had succeses with a holistic doctor practice? Any success with vitamins (B?). If so, any details would be much appreciated!
Avatar n tn this is just because of hormonal changes in our body n ph balance change of the vaginal discharge occuring before the periods..have curd n drink lots of water,avoid sweets,n yes stop taking birth control will help.i m doin the same thing and i guess its working...
Avatar n tn There have been scientific studies that show an essential fatty acid deficiency can be the cause of behavior problems. A large percentage of ADHD kids (my son has ADHD) have an essenital fatty acid deficiency. Clinical characteristics and serum essential fatty acid levels in hyperactive children. Mitchell EA, Aman MG, Turbott SH, Manku M. This study compared 48 hyperactive children with 49 age-and-sex-matched controls.
Avatar f tn It itches and hurts and can keep you up at night and you start hiding away at home for days that turn into weeks and then torturous months, spending hundreds of dollars in first aid supplies and hundreds of hours scouring the internet in desperation...and THOUSANDS OF HOURS (all day pretty much) treating the lesions or worrying about treating the lesions that keep getting worse whether you leave them alone or not. It's not an imaginary disease... or even mites or worms.
Avatar m tn He cannot tolerate any form of cow's milk. Milk based formula causes severe vomiting and rash on face, arms and neck. Even I had to give up most forms of dairy as just 1/4 cup of milk on cereal would cause him to spit up and break out in a rash after breast feeding. So what else can I try? Do I just stick with the Brown Rice Cereal and Goats milk and go slower and just let him live with the rash and hope it goes away? That seems cruel though because it is itchy.
Avatar n tn I figured why not lose some of the 60 extra pounds I was carrying in the meantime. as I became more aware of my body and health, I realized that my digestion, pms, exzema and fatigue were also completely related to my diet. I found out that I did have candida (mentioned above) and had to bite the bullet and finally become healthy. My sweet tooth and habit of eating starches and enjoying moderate alchohol with my friends had to go.
Avatar n tn It gets so severe at times that it brings me to tears. Sometimes it will get so bad it will wake me up in the middle of the night. It can last only a few minutes or it can last days. Usually it seems to be aggravated by something, the most common causes being nylons, water (taking a shower or swimming), humidity, and shaving. But sometimes it doesn't seem to be caused by anything at all.
