Mental issues when it comes to losing weight.
I need to lose approximately 100 pounds; however, every time I lose 5 pounds, I stop and regain it. Then I lose it again, only to stop and regain. I lost down to my "normal" weight many years ago only to regain the weigh because I did not like the attention I got and when I looked in the mirror, I still saw myself as fat. Why do I have this mental block?

My fingers constantly break out with paper cut type openings and the skin is all hard and dry around them.

It starts with an itching sensation then the skin starts to split.  As soon as one starts to heal another one starts to form.

Chronic Hives

I have been suffering from chronic hives/welts that itchy and when I scratch them it spreads and gets scaly. It is usually concentrated on knees, elbows, behind my ears and lower back.

It started a few months after I had my second child, first I used over the counter anti-itch cream and that stopped working so I visited a dermatologist who suggested it was ezcema and prescribed mild steroid (I was still nursing at the time) to control itching. At first the steroid cream worked and after few months it got worse, I went to a different dermatologist and she prescribed stronger steroid cream and suggested I switch out all clothes detergent, shampoo, lotion, etc. to allergy free products.

My skin got better but once again, after a few weeks it was a lot worse. I went to an allergist who administered "prick" test for food and environmental allergies. The test showed a few minor allergies (ragweed, pine pollen, etc.) but nothing unusual. I was also tested for Celiac disease (through blood work) and it came back negative.

I visited my internist who tested for unusual levels in my blood to check for autoimmune disease and everything came back normal. She suggested I visit another dermatologist who is very good and finding answers for difficult skin conditions.

The third dermatologist I visited asked a lot of questions about my lifestyle (stress level, eating habit, excercise, etc.) and thought my condition maybe driven by my hormone levels during pregnancy, nursing and chronic physical stress from insomnia and taking care of an infant. He gave me a non-steroid cream (since at this point my skin thinned due to prolonged use of topical steroids), gave me a prescription for Allegra (to control hives and itching) and performed a biopsy. The biopsy indicated that they are hives. The dermatologist said I should continue the allergy tablets for at least a month and stop taking them to see if the hives return, he also suggested I take extra vitamin C and increase my intake of iron. He speculated that once I stop nursing it will take around 6 months for my hormones to regulate and hopefully my problem will go away.

It's been 3 months since I stopped nursing (I nursed until my second child was 15 months old) and 3 months since I've taken daily allgery medicine (generic Zyrtec) and I still get itchy welts and hives. They are definitely better when I take my allergy medicine but it's still not completely gone. I don't want to increase my daily medication and am wondering if an holistic allergist can figure out what's causing my chronic hives that itchy. This has been going on for 15 months or so. I am very aware of environmental toxins and consume and use only all natural/organic products/food.

 Any suggestions for comment will be greatly appreciated.

Is there a bath product that can treat eczema?
I notice today that BBC News is reporting that Bath products 'can treat eczema' - they, or is there any other remedy that can help clear eczema that is covering most of the body?

I've been getting re-occuring folliculitus for numerous years now.  It occurs mainly on my thighs and buttock region. I received treatment from my doctor but it hasn't resolved the problem. I tried changing my diet but it still occurs. I am 25 and medium build. Can you please help as it is very embarassing.

Microscopic Polyangiltis

I have looked up the symptoms of this disease and it seems I have all most every one. Due to having one Dr for each problem no one put all the symptoms together. This happened after I was diagnosed with a lump in my left breast, which I had before as Cancer in 2000-and Radiation. Then a black spot was found in my left lung which is getting worse and they do not know what it is. The skin rash concerns me the most. I have has the MRI, for spine, EMG for nerves, Cat Scan for lung, Mamogram for breast. So is the blood test the final conclusion to this diagnosis?

I spent six months in a trailer that has black mold and I got so sick all I could do was lay in bed and my dog got just as sick. I cannot get it off my body despite using Clorox, peroxide, vinegar while I shower. Please help me and it is in my bedroom and builds up on the walls and everywhere especially if I shut the fan off that blows out the window. Can you advise me on what to do about the black mold on me?

Itchy Skin Rash

I have suffered for many years with very itchy skin particularly on the hands and feet, the condition becomes more intense when we have damp wet weather, the skin becomes inflamed and any cream thatIuse to try and soothe itjust seems to irritate it further. I have taken many courses of steroids prescribed by the GP's over the years to try and control it, but the relief is short lived and often the condition comes back with greater vengeance.

Is there any alternative therapy that I could try that may give me some relief or even repair? When the condition is at is most uncomfortable ness I can hardly concentrate to do anything and unfortunately resort to scratching the skin which gives short term comfort but alas the pain is then greater often tearing the skin to ill repair. I would be grateful to anyone who may be able to help me.

Thanking you in anticipation.


John Williams
