Avatar f tn • RMA soothing Ointment by Vibrant Health: for spot treatment of warts and wounds. I also combined this with the contents of the 400mg EGCg Green Tea Extract pills to make a RMA/EGCg ointment that I covered with a band-aid for overnight treatments when a spot was looking bad and needed some healing • Brave Soldier Antiseptic Healing Ointment: for spot treatment and healing help. I used to use Neosporin for the same thing.
Avatar n tn I am sorry for your Dx. I am a female but also now hypo.Since the beginning of my illness everything I read regarding the disease, when I stumbled across the stats of men getting it, I read through it. Dx is rare. specially on sub clinical Hypo or Hyper thyroidism in men. I believe this b/c men are less likely to see a doctor when they have symptoms. and if they do go and get Dx'd - most do not have the patience and stay on top of it.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar n tn *Find a free STD clinic in your zip code and get both you and your partner tested. Call the health department and they can give you information. *Consider the fact that you may be allergic to latex condoms. Swith to animal skin or non-latex condoms. Keep in mind that animal skin condoms are more porous than latex and can transmit certain stds. In conclusion, sex is not a bad thing, it's enjoyable, makes us feel good and the close contact makes us feel 'human'.
Avatar n tn He said it was fungal and bacterial, and prescribed candivas, nizadole 250 and daktacort cream. There is only 20% healing in 10 days, had been to doc after 5 days, the recovery was only 10%, doc asked to continue for 5 days more. Please tell what is this problem and advice remedy for the same.
Avatar m tn I think this would be a very good time to schedule a complete work up to find out exactly why your so fatigued and experiencing brain fog. Set up an appointment and get to the bottom of your health issues.
1963551 tn?1325604592 I know from my experience with my initial recovery that there may be some very real and hard things in that letter, but it will be all good if your both willing to move foreward in recovery. You and John are in my prayers every night. Try and relax and think positive.
Avatar n tn Any help would be wonderful. I wasn't sure where to post this, so men's health became the default. I will also post it under family medicine, but feel free to point me in the right direction if you know where if should go. Thanks!

193905 tn?1325400789 lotz of gatoraid and banana. I have the L-tyrosine some B-6 and strong minerals. I dug out all my recovery stuff and even started to write....I allways hated writting cause it made me cry so much doing it, its so real when you write and the words just have a stronger connection, they torment you to a reality I'd just assume not think of. and they Don't go away after there on paper, it's like the secret is out once its written....god I hate that today....
Avatar f tn You can sue him for Alimony, and Child Support, and all the debts incurred in getting you mental health counseling. Get a job that will help you to save up money to make a move, if this becomes your choice. Then get your own place. As for your daughter. She is not guilty of your husband's behavior. She did not cause it and she doesn't deserve to have to pay that price, just because she is his baby. She is every bit your daughter too, and she needs her Mama more than you can imagine.
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn WOW! 22 pounds is a lot of weight to loose in such a short period of time! Good for you!!! I hope that I am able to loose 22 pounds in the next couple of months. Are you following a diet plan and working out? I have not started working out yet....maybe one day...I don't have a diet plan either I am just trying to make good choices and watch my portions. This way I know that when I stop the shots and medicine I won't gain it all back. Lets hope!!! Best of Luck to you...

Avatar n tn i found it out from all over the internet and it sounds like i have phimosis.
Avatar m tn I took a Mens prostate health vitamin, lots of zinc and lecithin and shortly after I had the same problems. I have bald spots all over my neck now and on my jaw line between my chin and sideburn area. I used to have a bushy chin strap beard and now I have a patchy *** beard and have to shave sideburns and all of my neck. I haven't realized the connection to the mens vitamins until I read this here, so there is definitely a trending issue here.
1376247 tn?1278892259 I post here in hopes that it boosts the spirits of those who are facing similar experiences, as I found a lot of comfort from women online- and far more info than my own OBGYN surgeon ever gave me! I have had 2 c-sections and my recovery so far is not too different except for general anesthesia "hangover". Going under was my biggest, most consuming fear; I'd never had general before and my fear was extreme.
Avatar n tn This is really illuminating to find so many others suffering almost identical symptoms. I am a 58 year old male pretty fit and in generally good health. My problem is the intense tearing pain I get in my right knee when I bend at a certain angle and at a certain time. I can't define either because it's so uncertain. I can do situps now with no problem. We all seem to refer to this pain as a tearing pain as it feels like a wound that has been stiched together is tearing apart.
1310633 tn?1430227691 (CNN Money) Median household income was $53,657 in 2014, barely changed from $54,462 a year earlier, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Wednesday. Meanwhile, the nation's poverty rate also held steady at 14.8% last year. Some 46.7 million Americans were in poverty, compared to 46.3 million in 2013. This was the third year in a row that incomes stagnated, following two years of declines. Whites saw their incomes decline 1.7%, while blacks, Hispanics and Asians saw no significant difference.
Avatar n tn I used Palmolive mixed with Tea Tree oil from the health foood store and let that sit for 2 mintues or so, then I used the CVS version of TGel shampoo, then I used Nutreogena Clarifiying shampoo. I didn't use conditioner. But my hair was so dry I used some frizzease on the ends after I blowdryed my hair. So I think tomorrow I am going to use the same three shampoos and hoefully it will be the end of this monster oily waxy greazzy thing on my head!
Avatar m tn I had never heard of this condition, maybe because I am a female and have never worked in Men's Health. Therefore I did hours of reading and research and came up with some interesting theories. As you apparently know this condition is notoriously difficult to treat. There are some theories that this has a physiological component. One of the treatments when nothing else seems to be effective is called "Skin Deep.

Avatar f tn Protein heavy eating is best for the muscle recovery and development, and carbs are great for the quick energy needed for aerobics. But you're also 16, which means you have to be careful about the training -- your body is still developing. But the thing is, at 16 most people are hungry all the time, especially boys. But a girl doing that much muscle work will probably have increased testosterone, so you're going to have some more male in you than if you weren't training so hard.
1126418 tn?1326169592 As well as cutting out wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs, legumes and yeast, I take a multivitamin, D3, B12, Co Enzyme Q10, Gingko Biloba, and Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Acidiphilus. Just bought the MS Recovery Diet book by Ann Sawyer and Judith E Bachrach, which also advocates the above elimination and supplementation.
