Apr 21, 2012 · Acne in Skin Health

I used to suffer from Adult Hormonal Cystic Acne and I haven’t had a problem since I have been using this skin care range for the last 18 months. I didn’t have a lot of pimples, but the ones I had were so massive, they could have up to 5 cores in the one cyst. Not very pleasant.

I hope your daughter finds a solution that works for her.

Apr 21, 2012 · Restless leg syndrome in Just Want to Talk

My grandfather suffered from restless leg syndrome. I recalled a book that I had read years ago, that mentioned a significant improvement, when the author “rocked” in his rocking chair for a little while before going to bed. My grandfather was skeptical, but he tried it and said it really helped! It’s not a cure, but it helped enough that it became a nightly ritual.

This product has seriously changed my life!!!

I posted a very long explanation on Blake500’s individual post.

Apr 21, 2012 · Skin in Skin Health

Yep, it sounds like dermatitis. There are many different types of dermatitis and its quite common for it to “just appear”, one day. I started getting it in my early 20s but I can control it, to a degree.

Contact dermatitis is a reaction to an allergen, which is likely to be something new that you have recently came in to contact with. Have you changed anything recently? Maybe a new soap, shampoo, different cleaning product, a new hand cream, even new rubber gloves? It could also be a new washing powder, fabric softener, etc but if its isolated to just your hands, then I would think its something you have handled.

Sometimes it may not be a new product, but the brand has decided to change their formula – Has anyone been promoting a “new and improved” package? You should try and determine what product has caused the reaction, and when you do, note the ingredients. Then, if you have a reaction to another product at a different time, make a note of those ingredients as well, and see if you can narrow it down to any specific “problem” ingredient and avoid it in the future.

Another cause for dermatitis can be weather or seasonal changes. Its something to do with the humidity levels in the air.

A dermatologist could offer a cortisone cream to help relieve the symptoms, but its unlikely to cure it, and the creams generally smell pretty bad. If its caused by an allergen, try to stick with brands and products that you know don’t cause a reaction, and if you do want to try something new at any time, you may take a chance of causing a reaction.

Apr 21, 2012 · Severe abdomen pain with severe nausea in Digestive Health

I agree with NoWhiteFlag. However, the severe nausea and sharp stabbing pains may mean you have gall stones that are impacted and intermittently causing blockages. It took several months for me to get a diagnosis. The pain was sometimes so bad, I would go into hospital, severely dehydrated from vomiting, get put on a drip and have some blessed relief hooked up to morphine, and then they would send me home a day or so later when the pain subsided. They had run tests for just about everything, except the gall bladder, because at 26 years old, they felt I was “too young” to have gall stones.

Apr 21, 2012 · Severe Rosacea in Skin Health

I was diagnosed with rosacea in my early 30s, and over the years I have tried many different creams, lotions, antibiotics, IPL treatments, micro-dermabrasion – I would have spent a fortune. Some treatments helped for a little while, some did nothing at all, and even though the rash might have occasionally abated for a little while, it always came back. And the doctors could do very little to help.
To make matters worse, I also had associated adult hormonal cystic acne, so even on the occasion that the bumps or the redness were under control, I would still get massive pimples, on my chin, jawline and neck, that would have 3, 4 or 5 cores to them and were simply awful. I had no confidence, hated going out in public, and when I did, I covered everything up with pancake makeup.

I understand your infection and reactions have been more of an extreme allergic nature, and more severe than the majority of cases, so this may not be the solution, but from what you have3 described, I would bet your willing to try anything.

I started using this brand of skin care about 18 months ago, and I have never looked back.

It contains a lot of natural ingredients, and it has helped people who suffer psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea and other skin conditions.

I have only had maybe 3 rosacea flare ups since I started using it and my acne has completely disappeared. I don’t think my skin has ever looked this good, even when I was a kid! It may sound corny, but this product has literally changed my life.

I hope this information helps, and I am hoping that you have as much success with this brand as I did.

Good luck!!!
