Avatar f tn Good Morning All- I am looking for natural flea and tick remedies. After a lot of research, I am afraid of the treatments I have been getting from our vet through the years. They work, but my fear is the toxins that come with them. Does anyone out there have any suggestions for natural remedies that really work. Thanks and have a great day.
2186126 tn?1384961026 My dog has cushings and instead of putting her on meds that would ruin her kidneys, etc, (and the fact I was unemployed at the time), I went through PetWellbeing.com and ordered their "Harmony Gold" for dogs with cushings. Within one week her panting (which was excessive) diminished about 90% and her bloaty abdomen went back to normal. She is 14.5 years old now, been on the meds for two years. It is now that she is deteriorating fast due to cushings.
Avatar m tn Nothing seems to work to keep the fleas off of him without also irritating his skin. All natural sprays actually seem to cause an even worse reaction than the sprays or drops containing alcohol. I hate seeing him so uncomfortable. Does anyone have any tips for me or home remedies to try? We have already tried everything we could get from the store. Please help.
4413820 tn?1354213655 I have a 2 year old female American Bully that has a terrible rash and odor eminating from her skin and especially her feet. After two visits to t$200 each and scripts for prednisone and script shampoo and a change to Nutri-Max Lamb , our poor baby keeps breaking out.. I read somewhere that this could be related to a yeast infection that she may be getting. Could anyone please suggest a plan of action and a different food brand as this is not working.

Avatar n tn Coughing in chf has nothing to do w/'coughing' (like what humans use for coughs), it has to do w/her heart's congestion. Both my dogs are old and in mid-stages of chf where coughing is minimal. If your vet doesn't know what this excessive coughing is in relation to chf dump her quick. There are few dvm's who are heart specialists but the one I took my dogs to put them on furosemide (lasix/waterpills), enalapril and Vetmedin.
Avatar n tn In fact, I remember the first time I felt it was while I was still on vacation, and it was just a few days after I found that I had a ringworm rash (has nothing to do with worms - fungus on the skin). Anyway I treated that for well over 2 weeks until the rash/red spot was not visible for a few days. But ever since I had that damn thing I have felt that crawling sensation. No numbness, just spider crawling. I'm 30 - so for all I know I'm not pre-menopausal.
Avatar m tn Which is when I remembered about dry skin feeling like this. The irony is that many topicals for itching skin can actually dry out skin more, making the prickling worse.
Avatar f tn I will go back to my doctor because I do think it is worth asking for some bloods and skin tests to be taken because we cannot diagnose ourselves through making simple judgments from reading on the internet. It also seems as if the doctors are pretty clueless too at times when it comes to skin.
Avatar n tn Just to clarify - vaccines to not modify the sequence of our genes (somatic cells or gametes), and the antibodies produced in response to those vaccines are not passed on to our progeny. There is no evidence that vaccines alter the genetics of future generations.
Avatar f tn I visited the dermotologist n he suggested my to use moisturizing creams to stop the skin from dryin, sm seroid tablets for anti allergy and sm other tablets to remove the rashes completely. Its just been two days since iv bin under this medication. I shall let u people know if my rashes dissapear n if it does, i shall give you the names of the meds. Iv bin goin thru hell cuz i tght i wuz suffrn from some sorta HIV. Anyways hope this helps you all.
228208 tn?1189759424 Have you spoken to your Dr. about reducing your dosage gradually? If you check there are postings for remedies that seem to work for different people. This may help since you cannot move around a lot. Keep going you are doing great since you are already at day 6.
Avatar m tn Been to a dermatologist and he thought it was scabies. Was not. Still looking for an answer... Not Morgellons, not scabies, not dry skin. Need help.
Avatar f tn My suspects of where they come from, bringing compost in the house, pets having mites, dogs cats and reptiles. Rats, either killed by my dogs, or brought in for food for the reptiles. Wood or moss, gathered in the wild to put in house plants.
Avatar n tn i have been suffering from itchy skin after i shower for years and just read an interesting article tonight about the fact that sodium lauryl sulfate causes itching in most people (41%). i just went into my bathroom and checked my aveeno soap which i thought was mild and saw that ingredient. i have a feeling this could be causing all my torment with itching immediately after showering. here's the link i just read: http://www.associatedcontent.
Avatar m tn It sounds like a whole lot of misery for you. for the itchy skin, did you try QUELL lotion (over the counter item)--maybe scabies. Or cortizone cream? For the things crawling out your anus (maybe pinworms). ask your doctor for a prescription for Vermox or Mebendazole(by Rx only). In general, just google MORGELLONS SYNDROME or Morgellons disease and see if it fits you. I do not think you are imagining what you are feeling.
Avatar n tn Bed Bug bites leave marks on the skin right? I don't see any bite marks on my skin though. Its been plaguing me for 1.5 yrs now and its driving me crazy. Lots of days extremely sleepy especially when I have 8am classes at school.
Avatar f tn He quickly told me that they will NEVER heal if I don't leave them alone. I was put on a strict regimen for my skin. He had topicals compounded for me for maximum effectiveness. Been undergoing treatment for over four long months now but am making progress......I unfortunately still pick a little, maybe that is why I am not completely cured yet. I advise anyone that has these symptoms to go to a dermatologist. If that dermatologist looks at you like you are crazy...find a new one.
Avatar n tn for example diprobase cream which is good for raw red skin, light liquid parafin which is good for irritant and dry skin. also ask for oilatum bath addictive which can be used for the face and body which locks in moisture. 9.) most important, dont touch the skin or itch it, try and aviod changing temperature or humidity rapidly. 10.) use natural moisturisers that can be brought over the counter the best one is Aveeno cream.
Avatar n tn I thought maybe it could have been an allergic reaction to tomatoes or some other food. I have been taking some natural detox for the blood in pills form, I was feeling ok but last nite and this morning my hands started up again but not terrible that i want to rip them off, it's more of a burning irritating itch that is under the skin, no rash no dry skin and it tends to be activated when I do things like opening a soda bottle top or holding the retractable lead for the dogs...
1455248 tn?1289058973 There are some natural remedies that will help to alleviate some of the pain and discomfort associated with withdrawals...check out the health pages on the right of your screen - I have a variation of the Thomas Recipe using only natural ingredients in my journals. You have been given some great advice already and as others have warned...careful with the xanax and tylenol 3 as both are habit forming - it would be great if you could detox without them.
Avatar m tn I think Apple Cider Vinegar definately can help on the visible signs but it's powerful stuff so it's important not to leave it on for too long and to allow rest days for normal skin to recover. I'm also hoping the Tagamet will produce a stronger cell-mediated response to the areas I'm treating and the t-cells will eradicate all infected cells. Fingers crossed but I'm not getting my hopes up. If they come back after this time, then I'll go back and request a biopsy.
Avatar f tn BUT… here are the things I do that makes me feel better when I need relief and want to try something more natural before I reach for my meds suitcase. 1-Jaccuzi/Spa for a half hour prior to bed. This way my entire body is submersed. I find it helps with sleep and pain 2-I also went to a Hypnotist and had a tape done just for me that helps me deal with pain and sleep specifically on this tape.
Avatar m tn Consider safe natural options for your dogs spondylosis, which I would be glad to discuss with you! Like many NSAIDS prescribed for canine arthritis including spondylosis or arthritis of your dogs spine, serious and in some cases deadly side effects do occur. Serious side effects in dogs can occur with or without warning, and may result in death. An article published a few years ago, titled 'Why is Fido dead?
173930 tn?1196341998 the fading away SX. For example, skin problems - 39% first 6 months, 28% first 1 year, and STILL 28% after that. So basically, if you have it, it's yours forever. I agree with Jim that you shouldn't treat just to "feel better". But now I start to think that you also shouldn't treat just to "regress liver damage", if you're going to feel much worse for the rest of your life.
184674 tn?1360864093 It got better, cleared up for awhile, then came back with a vengence, only the stupid vet clinic I took him to had a moron treating him for skin allergies instead of mange and never even did a skin scraping. So not only did the demodex come back with a vengence, but I spent an arm and a leg treating him for allergies that he never had, and nearly all his hair fell out and he mutilated literally half the skin on his body from chewing and scratching.
Avatar m tn I would want to know for a fact that any herb I was thinking about giving to my dog had been proven nontoxic for dogs. Dogs can't take everything that humans can. Some substances might be harmful to dogs without being harmful to humans. Or the dosing might be completely different and not just a simple matter of adjusting for the lesser body weight of a dog. There are a few veterinarians that use herbs. It would be good if you could get a consultation with one of them.
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Avatar f tn The kidneys serve many vital functions. They filter and remove toxic wastes from the body via the urine, regulate calcium and vitamin D levels, maintain fluid levels, and secrete the hormone responsible for red blood cell production. Anything that interferes with the kidneys’ ability to function properly can cause kidney disease, which is the second only to cancer as a leading cause of death in dogs.
