I Got A Terrible Rash............

Post  Lioned on Wed 6 Jul - 21:51

Its well angry and the quack dont know what it is and i can't sleep.He thinks it an allergy so he reached for his book but couldn't be bothered to look inside so palmed me of with some antihistamine things,that aren't making it any better, and said it should be alright in five weeks time or come back.GP's are rubbish.

Were you on any prescribed medication before the rash broke out Lioned?

Skin is the most important organ.

Well, your skin is telling you something. I once had an amazing rash, turned out to be nothing but stress.

Re: I Got A Terrible Rash............

Post  Lioned on Wed 13 Jul - 21:41

It is getting a little better.I have read somewhere that a 'Gluten' allergy causes the kind of rash i have,infact its the only thing that fits on 'Doc net.com etc etc'

No way can i give up Gluten as its in nearly everything i like.Anyway i am not giving up beer either.

I have got to go back to the Hospital in the next couple of weeks to see the skin specialist who cut a 'mole' of my chest a few months ago,just to make sure thats ok so i'll ask him if its not got better by then.

Thanks.

No penicillin or any other drugs,take piriton for a bit of hay fever.Quack said must be an allergy so take two antihistamins a day for couple of weeks.

Yes, you can buy it for drinking at shops like Holland and Barrett and any health food store. Be careful, though, because it can have a laxative effect. I have several aloe vera plants, which look attractive and are very useful. Any burns in the kitchen are immediately treated by pulling off a small part of a plant and squeezing out the gel.

I suggest trying the gel to apply to your skin. You can buy a fairly big tube of it from places like Holland and Barrett and make sure it's around 90% pure. Best to keep the tube in the fridge so that it's lovely and cool when you apply it. You've also got it handy for cooling and soothing minor burns.

That looks like good value. Over 99% pure organic aloe vera gel. Tea tree is good for fungal infections and quite a few other conditions, but I wouldn't use it for eczema.

Tea Tree Oil Healing Powers

Tea tree oil has been proven to be a powerful yet natural antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal medicine (essential oil).

It is being used as a very effective first aid remedy and against countless skin ailments, infections, cuts, scrapes, burns, insect bites and skin spots etc.

Tea tree oil is effective against nail fungus, ringworm, athlete's foot, dandruff, acne, blackheads and many types of infestations including lice, mites, scabies and mosquitoes etc...

Tea tree oil is not just soothing and disinfecting, it is capable of penetrating into the lower skin layers with its anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, analgesic (pain-killing) and cicatrizant (wound-healing) qualities.

It has a diaphoretic effect - It promotes sweating - which enhances the body's own natural preventative response when threatened by infection.

Tea tree oil exhibits expectorant and balsamic characteristics, which are especially beneficial in the case of throat or chest infections, having a generally soothing and clearing (mucus-expelling) effect on the entire respiratory tract. It is also effective against head colds.
