How to Naturally Eliminate Bad Vaginal Odor -Treat Bv Without Antibiotics

If you would like to know how to naturally eliminate bad vaginal odor, then you will pleased to learn that there is help at hand. Millions of women worldwide are affected at any one time from this common condition, although due to the embarrassment factor, it is rarely spoken about. The most common cause of bad vaginal odor is bacterial vaginosis. This is caused by an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina. Experts believe that there is no one “cause” of the condition, but there are a number of factors which make it more likely, including:-

* A change in your sexual partner
* Over-washing or douching
* Significant changes in body temperature
* A lowered immune system
* Cigarette smoking

However, this is not an exhaustive list and very often there is no apparent cause at all. One thing is for sure though, you will want to know how to eliminate bad vaginal odor and how to do it quickly! Within the vagina, there are two types of bacteria-good and bad. Usually, the pH level of the vagina is mildly acidic and this supports the good bacteria. When something upsets the balance, the bad bacteria multiply rapidly and this causes the fishy vaginal odor.

As this condition is not a true infection or virus, but is brought about by an imbalance, conventional medication does little other than give temporary symptomatic relief-and this includes antibiotics. It is crucial to get the body in balance once again to enable the good bacteria to kill off the harmful bacteria naturally. This is not only better for you, but can work far more effectively than antibiotics and there is a very good reason why this is the case.

Frequently Asked Questions

    How am I supposed to treat my bad skin?
    I have such bad acne to a point where I do want to go out. I’ve tried a lot of things- neutrogena, biore, clean and clear… Neutrogena worked for a little bit but then stopped. I want to cry! What face wash should I use?!
    also, I have a LOT of blackheads all on my nose. How do I get rid of those too?

    • ANSWER:
      Me and my brother have had the same problem as you. There is NOTHING on the market that will help you in the slightest. The only way to clear your skin is to go to your doctor because acne is caused and happening under the skin and products in shops only deal with the surface. A doctor would probably put you on a course of antibiotics and give you a very strong cream. They may also refer you to a skin specialist.

      Hope this helped and good luck, I know how terrible acne makes you feel xx

    how to treat bad skin ?

    • ANSWER:

    • ANSWER:
      Soak a washcloth in malva tea and apply it as a warm compress to the infected area to reduce inflammation.

    • ANSWER:
      It may all just be part of hormones. It could be what you are eating or your stress level. Keep taking care of your skin and try to start using a variation of products. Shop around, and see what works best for you. Remember, everyone’s skin is different.

      If you can afford it, you might want to see a dermatologist.

    Thanks in advance ^_^

      You should always wear sunscreen of at least SPF 15. It’s better to be higher, but at least put on SPF 15. Eating the right foods always helps. For example, fruits and vegetables. And plenty of water.

    How to treat a bad dry skin cut on my foot?
    My feet always start to crack etc during the winter. After suffering horribly last year I thought I learned and was doing enough by using moisturizers and stones on my feet this year. I was wrong. Somehow a crack formed and before I even had a chance, it split open and now I can not get it to heal. Its on the side/bottom of my foot so whenever I take a step, it splits again.

    I was looking at it earlier and even though I’ve been using peroxide/band aids/antibiotic cream, its still looks like its infected (dark/bloody) and I have no idea what to do to give it the chance to heal. Ive tried using a variety of moisturizers with socks and though it helps a little it hasn’t gotten far. Using anything rough in that area right now is far too painful and it just bleeds again/more. Does anyone know what to do? If it wasn’t on such a bad spot on my foot it wouldn’t be so awful… thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Dry skin refers to the situation when less oil is produced by the oil glands. It is the main problem during winters when humidity is less.It makes the skin tight after wash and also causes scaliness and cracks on the skin in severe cases. It is the common condition that affects almost every one.
      After bathing applying Aloe Vera gel is also effective. This is good dry skin remedy.

      Mash half an avocado and mix it with a few drops of fresh lime juice and spread this paste over the cleansed skin. Stay it for fifteen to twenty minutes. Wash the skin alternately both with cold and warm water. This is also effective home remedies for dry skin.

      Crush five or six aspirin tablets into a powder. Mix into a paste with 1/2 teaspoon each of water and lemon juice. Apply to your foot, then put your foot into a plastic bag and wrap a warm towel around everything. The combination of the plastic and the warm towel will help the paste penetrate the hard skin. Sit still for at least 10 minutes. Then unwrap your foot and scrub the area with a pumice stone. All that dead, hard, dry skin should come loose and flake away easily.

    Basically i have problem skin, but i am not sure what type or what products to treat it with?

    I have large pores
    alot of redness
    alot of small colour less pimples
    and like 1 or 2 spots

    Whats the best products to use?

    i am already using benzoyl peroxide




    • ANSWER:
      The best thing to do is to go and see a doctor, they can prescribe you with antibiotics which help a lot. They can also prescribe special creams. Also, I really don’t think your skin is bad! If you really want to know what skin type you are, you can even go and see any beautician at a make-up counter and they can tell you your skin type. I’d say that if you have large pores you probably have oily skin, but then again dry skin can make pores more obvious and you can’t really tell from the photos. Benzoyl peroxide creams can also cause skin irritation and reddening, so maybe you could try to cut out the benzoyl peroxide and see what difference it makes (if any).

    My GSD has got quite bad dry skin, how can I treat this?
    He is itching so much and so often and when I comb him, I can see his dry skin seems to be getting worse. He is moulting so much as well. H e doesn’t have fleas as I check all of the time and he is treated also.

    Before I take him to the vet, I wondered if there are any other things I could try. A few years back I took him to the vet who told me to give him piriton to help his allergies and johnston baby shampoo to help his skin, although I didn’t do that at the time, I am wondering if I should try it now.
    A bit of a cop out but I am going to leave this to the public vote, I absolutely think those who said diet are right.
    Hes a very hyperactive dog and he cannot have any artificial colours so I had to search for a food that worked for him but for some reason it has been discontinued and I had to try another and it was him eating this for a month that I have noticed the itching so I have stopped it and am trying another for him.

    Thank you all for your answers though, hopefully my itchy scratchy dog will soon have good skin and a beautiful coat again

    • ANSWER:
      This MAY be a symptom of poor diet. Be sure your dog is eating a high quality dog food, and minimize the junk.

      From my own research and personal experience, I suggest you consider Blue Buffalo brand.

    • ANSWER:

    Dog with sensitive skin? How to treat?
    I have a 15 month old dog that has battled bad skin conditions during the cold season, which is now until spring. I feel bad for him because he is always so itchy and has actually bitten all the way to his skin, pulling out his fur! He is missing fur on his tail and hind legs, and I am getting worried now. My dad is going to take him to the vet on Tuesday, but I would like to know if there is a way to treat his irritated skin.

    Let me first explain that he had a terrible case of fleas last month! They were so bad this year, and of course he got them. Nothing could get rid of them, until we brought him to the vet and they gave us a pill that kills fleas in 30 minutes, and advantage treatments. It worked really well. But I noticed between the treatment, and his sensitive skin in this season, it has made his skin awful. I don’t know what to do for him anymore, he is just so irritated.

    What should I use for him?
    He has terrible flakes underneath his fur! He is so irritated right now, but the vet doesn’t open up until tomorrow! We are just trying to keep him comfortable, and his favorite place to be is in his crate or with the little kids, so that’s where he usually is.

    • ANSWER:
      I see you resolved the fleas, but I would use Comfortis if thats not what you are doing. We had the same problem. I would use an Oatmeal based Shampoo, Cockers have very sensitive skin, so thats what I use. MILD SHAMPOO IS KEY! A shampoo with colloidal oatmeal as its base is highly recommended as it is both mild and soothing to the skin. Colloidal oatmeal has anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties so will help calm the skin.

      Allowing the oatmeal shampoo to remain on the skin for up to 10 minutes allows the skin to absorb,& retain moisture. RINSE ALL THE SHAMPOO OFF! Shampoo residue can be an irritant to the skin.

      Use cool to slightly warm water to bathe a dog with irritated skin, hot water will irritate the skin more. But be careful not to make it too cold, cold water may make the dog opposed to getting into the tub or convince him to get out as fast as he can.

      After bathing, pat the dog dry with a towel, don’t rub. Rubbing him dry, as with rubbing during shampooing, simply increases the irritation and the urge to scratch

      Blow drying should also be avoided!! The heat from the dryer can dry the skin and make it more irritated. If the dog must be blown dry, use the very lowest or the no-heat setting on the dryer.

      In most cases, it is recommended that a dog be bathed no more than once a month in order to avoid over-drying the skin and coat. But, with Cocker Spaniels, I bathe mine (Rudy) once a week as he gets smelly as he has a lot of coat, depending upon the cause of the itchiness, a veterinarian may recommend more frequent bathing in order to remove the irritant. If it doesn’t work try a hypo-allergenic shampoo/conditioner, talk to your vet about that one.

      A dog’s itchy, irritated skin can be brought back to healthy condition by using care when bathing him. Gentle cleansing, mild shampoo, cool water temperatures and patting dry all play a part in getting a dog back to being comfortable in his skin.

      Good Luck :)

    I adopted a small Pomeranian (not the teacup thing) he had very bad skin, so as a result i had him shaved.?
    He had a really bad rash it was all over so i had to have him shaved so i could get direct access to his skin to apply treatment. He is now healed from the rash but now developed dry flaky skin from all the medication and medicated bathing so often. So to treat the dry skin i was rubbing his skin with EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) and also applying like a 1/2 tsp of vegetable oil to his meal and the dry skin seems to be improving. Now it looks like his skin has gotten darker and im wondering if its because his coat isn’t there to protect his skin and its darkening because of the sun. How can i fix this matter now? He also is getting dirty and so needs a bath but im trying to hold off just because i didn’t want the dry skin to flare back up again… Your opinions are welcomed.. BTW i didn’t feel that it is black skin disease because i mean there is no foul odor or scales or anything. I also read that giving him Melatonin would help lighten back his skin pigment would that help either?
    Ok i forgot to add, He has been to the vet, that’s where i got the treatment to rub on him and the wash to bath him with for his rash i haven’t taken him to the vet for the skin because he isn’t in pain he isn’t itching or anything im doing what the vet told me to do but i just started seeing his skin darkening so i was just wondering if it was due to him being shaved and the sun making that happen
    I own two dogs i have a huge backyard that is closed off and fenced in my dogs love their outside time they have the shaded porch to lay on as well as the open grass to play and i let them out like around 9am every morning and bring them back in around 12pm then they are inside with me till about 5pm when they go back out till around 8pm then they are back inside and then we go for a walk around our neighborhood.

    What have I done to deserve bad skin?
    I know that pimples especially comes during puberty but I can’t help but feel that I have more than others.
    What have I done to deserve it?
    People in my family in general doesn’t have that bad skin.
    Since last week or so I got so fed up with my ugly, red face that I’ve really cut back on stuff so that I eat a LOT less greasy food, as little candy as possible, hardly any soda. I make sure not to touch my face and I wash twice a day and moisturize and I hardly EVER wear make-up.
    It seems as if my acne almost got worse and now I have a lot of small pimples on my chin too.
    I feel like killing myself sometimes.
    I get really angry when people mention my bad skin and when I think of cute guys I think I’m way to ugly and pimply to get a boyfriend (sad thing is that I’m not actually too bad looking). I’m not a bad kid, I don’t stay out late, I do my homework, I exercise, I eat and sleep fairly well. I just get so depressed when I see my horrible face and that makes me a LOT more stressed that I already am.
    (my pimples are a fuse between those yellowish/white ones and the red ones).
    PLEASE! I’m BEGGING you for advice!
    How can I treat and prevent the best way?
    (I don’t have that “skin eating” acne where you get deep scars, but I can get pigmentation).

    • ANSWER:
      This is nothing to kill yourself about. You will find a guy, and you are not ugly.
      ~Stressing can add more pimples.~
      Try out different skin routines, and different products. Try it for the recommended days, or if no improvement seems to be coming after a while change it. Not every product will work, so keep trying. There are also heat treatments that can work on big pimples.
      See a skin doctor or whatever they are called. They can prescribe or recommend so snazzy products also.
      I’m not sure, but I think to much moisturizing can clog your pores. Unless you have really dry skin. Use moisturizing only when the skin feels dried out, tough, tight, whatever.
      From what I’ve read, pimples on your chin could be from stress, grease, or the time of the month.
      If people are saying things about your skin, punch them in the face. No. Just ignore it. It’s hard. But try your best. And keep trying different acne products. If it improves then people will stop saying things. You won’t be in the news.
      I also envy you sleeping well. I get like five hours of sleep a night.

    How do I treat bad acne quickly without Proactive?
    NO PROACTIVE! I tried it, and my skin got itchy and dried it out. I’m only 12, yet I have bad acne. I have tons of blackheads in my nose, and there is a zit growing in between my eyebrows, on my chin, and a little one underneath my nose that hurts a tiny bit. My dad had really bad acne when he was a kid and always popped them, so it was hereditary and now my sister and I have it. I want something that will work, and KEEP on working. but i DO NOT want things like icolytome-whatever, cuz i dont have time or the resources to get things like that. I need brands and advice. Also, after I wash my face, i can see all these little yellow dry things on my cheeks, chin, and around my mouth, so how do i prevent that as well? i have cocoa butter, thatll work right?

    • ANSWER:
      I have had acne my whole life, treated with everything including accutane, with all the dry itchiness you are describing. i am 32 now. go immediately to the advice and lists here are unbelievable. i ordered the 2.5% benzoyl peroxide gel. it is much milder than any bp that you can get in the store. neutrogena onthe spot is 2.5% but still made my face SO dry and itchy, made me touch my face more. If you buy it you will not be disappointed. I would skip the cocoa butter (as most formulas will clog the pores). I use nothing on my body that doesn’t say “non-comeodegenic”. This means it won’t clog pores. Be careful with all products b/c they will get on your face even if you think they won’t.

    bad skin :( ?
    i use to take this really strong acne pill called claravis… it worked really well and i had perfect skin;. You can only be on this pill for six months and i went off of it aug. of 07 recently my skin has been breaking out.. not really in acne but more like red bumps.. i was wondering if anyone knew how to treat it well..

    alsoo.. how do you make pores look smaller?

    • ANSWER:
      Go to your dermatologists and talk about a form of birth control. It helps lower the hormones, that cause acne, and birth control you can go on as long as you want.

      Also an old trick , crush up a peice of asprin, and put a bit of lemon juice in to make a paste. Lemon juice takes the reddness down, water can be used too. And Asprin has salycic acid in it, that removes the acne it self

    Really bad skin problems on my face.Help!!?

    I have alot of problems with my skin so please bare with me. First of all i have constant dry flaky skin on the corners of my mouth that NEVER go away no matter what i do.

Their not that obvious unless you look really close but i know their there and am very embarrassed by them. Its very hard for me to wear make up as it just seems to make every patch of dry skin more noticeable.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would love to know if anyone knows what this is, what causes it and how i can treat it.

    bad skin, acne related trouble, HELP?
    im sure there are so many questions asked about how to treat spots etc, but i was just wondering if anyone had any advice or anything, or what make up to use, im really self concious and its getting me down a treat!

    • ANSWER:
      if you go to the doctor and explain this then they will give you pills to treat it. They only give the pill (which really works) to people who they think are depressed about it so put on a whole act and try to cry. If not then Ive found that if you wash your face and then put cold water on after your pores are closed and you get less spots because the dirt can’t get in.

    westie with very bad skin problem?
    We brought Ella at 8 weeks old, she was a fluffy pup with excellent skin. At approx 6months old, she developed bad skin rashes, lumps and bumps on her back, her tail and her back legs. Sometimes these would appear as purple blisters and other times as dry, crusty spots. She would constantly chew her skin but it remained just in those areas. When taken to the vet she was prescribed 3 tablets at a time (I think they were antibiotics), we are now on our third vet and all three vets have said it’s just a common problem with Westies and they have been very little help. At the end of last year, her skin has rapidly got worse and now she is covered in spots from head to toe. In January 2010 I took her back to the vet who prescribed Malaseb shampoo and 30 days antibiotics. During her time on the antibiotics her skin seemed to be clearing up a little but then her skin turned black. She was having Malaseb baths twice weekly for a month. At that time we had shaved all her fur off so that we could deal with her skin. As her skin was clearing, we cut down the baths to once a week. All too soon her spots, rashes, lumps and bumps came back worse than ever. I got some more Malaseb from the vet but this time it seemed to make her skin condition worse. She has had skin scrape that has come back clean. The past month, her skin has been the worst ever, she has cuts on her neck that won’t heal, she has a mixture of crusty, round, dry ‘eczema like’ problems and then she has her red blisters. From the age of one year we have tried her on so many different things with no improvement. She has been on several high quality pre-biotic hyper-allegenic dog foods and as for treats she has only been given natural real dried fish or james well beloved real organic chicken. I have tried her on cod liver oil, evening primrose, sulphar tablets, megavit plus, omega 3 and on her skin I have used sudocream, aloevera 100% gel, neem oil. I have never mixed and matched all these products, I have tried them individually in 3 month slots. Nothing seems to help. I now, as a last resort have put her on Burns dog food. They state on the packet that it helps food intolerances, skin, liver and they claim that it is a holistic dog food. After speaking to their nutritionist on the phone I have been told to cut everything out of the diet so she is just consuming one bag of this food. Ella is now, very withdrawn, in a lot of pain when being touched and is hiding and cowering away. She’s crying for no reason and obviously not very happy.

    I am at the stage now where I feel selfish letting her continue while she is so obviously suffering. I have spent months online trying to get a remedy for her as the vets give me a 10minute consultation at a cost of £40 and just tell me “that’s what westies are like”. Ella was going to come on holiday with us in the middle of August to France, but my vet has already advised me that customs probably won’t let her back in the country, looking as she is. But then, I don’t feel that I can leave her with anybody as I would be worried how bad her condition will be when I return.

    Any advice will be grately appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      You should ask the breeder what they think first.

      Second, it sounds like environmental allergies, NOT food allergies.

      Antibiotics won’t help, it’s anti-inflammatories, and anti-histamines your dog needs.

      Ask a Vet about giving your dog Benadryl, or other over the counter antihistamine.

      Here is a website that may help, this is where I took my dog for her allergies, although I know you are in the UK, the articles may help:

      Try SALMON oil, and feed a FISH BASED dog food, with NO grains, and a carb source such as potato or sweet potato. Or try Vitamin E caps. An oatmeal based shampoo may be your best bet as far as bathing goes. Don’t bathe too often.

    How to treat a bad sunburn aftermaths?
    I got it 3 days ago, it doesn’t hurt at all and I am applying 2-3 times a day aloe vera gel.

    How do i treat a bad, big turf burn on my knee?
    ok so i slid very far on turf playing soccer and i need to know how to treat this burn. its located on my knee cap which stinks because everytime i straighten or bend my knee it hurts really badly because i stretch the skin. an help/tips you can give me?

    • ANSWER:
      make sure you clean it out. as for the pain, there isn’t much you can do. try to avoid jeans or tight pants for a couple days because they will rub your knee cap and it won’t heal as quickly, plus it will be painful. sweatpants might be good until it scabs over. even then be careful that jeans don’t rub the scab off.

    Really bad skin? I need help please!?!?
    My skin for the past five days has been terrible!! I have buttons on my cheek and a big button between my eyes on my nose and they are red and i have severe blemishes…I don’t know what’s wrong I’ve been taking very good care of it and I only treated it harshly one day when i scrubbed it down hard after a sweaty day. I use Porcelene skin care, and Palmer’s tea tree toner and Olay toner and moisturizer. And since yesterday I started using Mary Kay products and Sivoderm and Clearasil overnight. I don’t know what to do anymore..If you could please tell me how to get rid of the blemishes and pimples or at least reduce thier redness and size, I’m desperate? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I agree, going to a dermatologist would help you tons.

      Until then, try sticking to one brand of skincare and see what happens there. More often than not bad skin reactions come from the different formulas reacting against one another, especially those containing acne-fighting ingredients. One single brand is designed to work with all its own products, and you will see a significant change.

      I strongly recommend cutting out at least half of the products you are using (doesn’t matter which brand, it just is a lot that’s going on your face right now!) All you need is a cleanser, sunscreen in the morning, night solution and/or acne treating gel and night, and then a moisturizer. Using too much toner (and for some skin, toner at all) strips your skin of necessary oils and will actually increase oil production and thus higher amounts of bigger zits. Less is more with skin, especially on the face. Use a mask once a week, and gently exfoliate with a washcloth and the cleanser if it contains an exfoliate. Steaming before the mask opens up your pores and rids dirt. Just always always always follow up cleansing with moisturizer!

      Hope this helps! :)

    How to treat a bad sun burn?
    Over the weekend my skin got so burnt, it’s in the purple color range. I can’t lift my arms above my head without it hurting and it’s hard to sleep at night because the cotton of the sheets irritate my skin. I know that lotion helps, but all of my lotions are alcohol based. Is there anything else I can do to help ease the pain for now?

    How do I treat infected eczema on intolerant skin?
    I’ve had eczema for the whole 23 years of my existence, usually in the winter months, affected by the cold canadian climate. This year it’s been terrible in the summer, right after I moved into a bigger city. Normally I can deal with it on my own, but this time I had to see a doctor as it was covering 50% on my arms and at least 20% of my legs. She said she ‘thinks’ it might be a fungal infection as well and has given me lamISIL (terbinafine hydrochloride cream). She told me to come back in two weeks if it wasn’t getting better. Doctors have never actually helped with my skin problems, often times I have to see 3-4 before they get the diagnosis right if they do at all. I trust doctors with everything but my skin, they just don’t seem to get it right with my skin. (Maybe I’m not saying the right things?)

    So after 4 days some of it is much less red and a little bit more hydrated and less itchy, but there are patches, in the same place on my arms that are much, much worse. I can’t even put vaseline on them now without an intense burning sensation that takes 10 minutes to subside. I can’t put anything on this skin that doesn’t burn now, none of my basic creams designed for sensitive skin and eczema. Even my Avene thermal water that is supposed to be soothing, anti-irritating and anti-inflammatory and usually stops the eczema from itching, burns very badly.

    I don’t understand why some parts of it are healing now and some are getting worse? My skin also has bouts of intolerance (usually on my face in the winter) but the burning has never been this bad before. I just want to know if this could be something more than eczema or different altogether.

    It is red and bumpy, the skin is thick-almost leathery, in some places the edges blend into the normal skin, but in some places there is a distinct line separating it. It is tight, dry and flaky, intensely itchy (I wake up scratching in the middle of the night). I have fake nails on primarily to keep myself from breaking the skin, and it works, there is no bleeding. It’s dry, there is no oozing and other than the bumpy texture there isn’t really anything I would classify as a blister or the like.

    I know my way around eczema, no hot water- avoid water in general, hydrate with gentle moisturizers, pat your skin dry- not rub, avoid detergents and cleaning products or anything chemical on the skin, use gentle clothing, don’t scratch… you get the idea.

    I just want to know what’s wrong and how to treat it.

    • ANSWER:
      I have patients with eczema lesions, and they erupt most at times when they eat chicken and eggs. some with seafood intake. some with weather changes

      best remedy is to avoid the source of allergens. and if eczema erupts try not scratching them to avoid having open wounds.

      Topical remedy would be a clobetasol propionate cream , but avoid applying this cream on open wounded areas

    We have a Devon Rex at the shelter I volunteer at with a bad, red skin rash. I can send pics of him. Help pls
    He has been to 2 different vets and has had depo shots, antibiotics, special kitty food and even an E collar. He has a skin condition of red bumps on his neck area that will not go away. His previous owners abandoned him and when the animal shelter rescued him from animal control, they shaved him down and found the rash. I can send pictures of “Ra” and his red rash. You can see the rash is in his ears too.

    I have also contacted an old friend from school who is a Veterinarian. He suggested it might be Miliary Dermatitis. (I did not have the pictures when I spoke to
    him) Ra has no fleas at this time and the staff are a little concerned about putting him on frontline in case it aggravates the condition more. He has been found to have tape worms
    Any thoughts of what this may be and how to treat it? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      If it is really bad, you might want to get it stitched on to make sure it heals right.
      They sell large bandaids at the store, they’re patch-sized. You might consider using one of those. Use Neosporin before putting the bandaid on, it helps with healing.

    How to treat dry skin?
    I stopped using my clean and clear foaming facial wash a couple weeks ago because I noticed it was burning my cheeks kind of. This past week I ended up breaking out on my chin really bad. Also, my skin has been very dry. The past couple days I noticed my right eye lid being kind of dry and flaky and a little red. I am really worried :( I don’t even have insurance right now to go see a doctor. Thoughts of what this could be for my eye lid and any suggestions on something to use? I’m worried because this has never happened to me before!! HELP!

    • ANSWER:
      If you have flaky red skin, it is probably a rash. To help cure rashes very fast, go to your nearest drug store and purchase some hydrocortosone cream. It’s cheap, painless, and fast!
      If your skin isn’t red but it’s flaky, just use some regular face moisturizer.

      Just be careful not to get it in your eye!
      Only apply a little bit 2 or 3 times a day.

      Hope I helped! Good luck!

    skin care.?!?!?!?

    its like red&blotchyy and its very rough..
    ive tried many lotions and none seem to work for me..
    any one know what to do for this??

    • ANSWER:
      If you do have continuously red blouchy skin, you may do best to see a dermatologist.

      I have had this problem. I went to a dermatologist and he informed me that I had Rosacea. Which can be treated very successfully.

      Look this up on line, if you dare. You will learn all the details and please keep in mind…much of what you do read about this skin condition is “advanced untreated” cases. So fear not! But do see a good skin doctor as soon as you can get in.

    How to treat a very bad bruise?
    A few day ago I fell really hard while rollerblading. I fell on my thigh. For the first two days the bruise wasn’t very big. Now it has spread on my entire thigh. It also hurts very badly. The surface of the skin feels numb and is very hard.
    Please tell me if this may something dangerous? Should I go to see the doctor?

    • ANSWER:
      Go to your family doctor. As far as I know, numbness is not a common factor of bruising, nor is the area becoming very hard.

      First, call your doctor’s office and see if he or the nurses think it worth making a trip. They may suggest waiting a few more days to see what happens. Don’t look up problems on the internet, that will only worry you more.


    How can I treat my scratching hamsters?
    My hamster and her babies seem to have a bad itching problem. They scratch constantly and have pinkish skin. Mom has it bad. Her skin is more reddish and she is oddly nonactive.. Usually she’s eating and running. Momma is really tired all the time and eats less. ): Does anyone know what’s going on or what I should do?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Btw, the babies are about 25 days old..

    • ANSWER:
      She seems to have a parasite problem, like fleas, ticks, mites, or lice. What ever bug it is, they suck nutrition from her bloodstream, and it takes allot of nutrition to produce milk for her babies and she needs to build it up since shes just gone through a pregnancy. This is why shes lethargic and malnourished. Treat her and the babie’s flea problems with some flea drops from the store, then give her allot more nutritional foods like milk, bread, cheese, and meat. I hope shes okay!

    how do u treat really bad scrapes?
    my sister just got her skin ripped off her knee and part of her foot what is the best way to treat it?

    • ANSWER:
      If you’re treating it, make sure to wash your hands first. Put pressure on it if it’s bleeding to stop it. When it’s no longer bleeding, rinse the scrape(s) with warm water. Maybe have her sit at the edge of your tub with her leg in so you can rinse it more easily. Check to see if there’s any kind of debris (splinters, piece of glass, gravel, etc.) there and if so, carefully remove it. If there’s a lot of dried blood or small stuff that you can’t grab with tweezers, try taking a clean damp wash cloth and gently pat around the scrape to loosen it.

      Then, clean it with some kind of disinfectant. This is really important to make sure it doesn’t get infected. If you have a first aid kit, there’s probably some disinfecting wipes in there or antiseptic. Don’t use peroxide or alcohol unless you have absolutely nothing else because it can end up being more harmful in the healing process than helpful (not to mention both of those hurt like hell on open wounds).

      Once it’s clean, put some kind of antibiotic ointment on it and cover with a large bandaid or gauze and tape. Reapply the antibiotic ointment/dressing as needed.

    How to treat Sunburn on acne prone skin?
    I got a sunburn on my face. I have mild acne that will increase if I don’t wash my face twice a day with my cleanser. I’m afraid using my cleanser will dry out my skin and make my acne worst at this time. What should I do to treat the sunburn, preferably the acne at the same time?

    • ANSWER:
      Aloe vera.

      Won’t help the acne but won’t make it worse…you can use the aloe vera along with your acne meds but the meds might dry out the sunburn too much. Use lots of aloe vera.

I don’t have a job and what do I’m gonna do with my life???any suggestions would make me feel better!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hey buddy,

      I can relate, though being somewhat of a diametric opposite. I’ve always been told that I am exceptionally handsome, yet I’ve never had a girlfriend; I’ve only had sex once. I’ve been rejected more than most. I wonder why, and people say that I am intimidating, because I am good-looking, smart, and other bullshit. All I’ve ever gotten is contempt from men who want to dominate me and women who ignore me. I’m 20, not in college. I always felt isolated and anti-social among my peers. I hated high school. I always resonated most with the “ugly” kids, the rejects, the ones likely to “go postal”. I used to get good grades and then I fell apart when I was about 15. I’ve worked a lot of dead end jobs. I have few friends; I’m sometimes lonely and sometimes hopeless. I’ve thought about the military as a last resort (machine gun in my hand; wer lacht jetz?), but was to be denied because of manic depression (For which I am medicated). I thought about suicide often.

      I discovered happiness and freedom when I was traveling Europe recently– I miss that euphoric, elated feeling, and of not giving a fuck. But something inside of me tells me to keep going.

      If you are struggling in school, maybe take some time off. Life is not the rat race that Americans make it out to be. Like me, you’ve got a lot of time. I come from a family of late bloomers; my mother was the ugly girl in school… by the time I was a baby (She had me when she was 22) she was the most beautiful woman people ever saw. She put men and women to shame. She went back to school when I was little, graduated at 27, and is now one of the top people at her company. She has said that waiting for school was the best thing that she ever did. (She had dropped out a couple of times). And all of those people that used to laugh at her…

      My grandpa graduated high school with a 1.7gpa; fell through the cracks; enlisted in the navy, hated it; had three kids, got divorced; went bankrupt at 30; never did finish school. But, being a bull-headed, determined man (He’s German, ha ha), he’s now a multi-millionaire from sheer ingenuity and hard work.

      Life is a series of peaks and valleys, as is said, and sometimes you’ll catch a lucky break, sometimes you won’t. Learn from the good and the bad.

      The best advice that I can give (What has worked for me) is to apply yourself to the things that you are most passionate about– engage in pursuits that you find fulfilling, and those that give you a sense of accomplishment.
      For me they are swimming, rock climbing, conversations, my cats, movies, poetry, writing, reading. Set goals and achieve them. Make the goals small at first, realistic, and then bigger once you build a sense of confidence. Perform things like “affirmations”; tell yourself, convince yourself of something, and visualize it. Make it your mantra. “…I will… I am going to…”.

      Don’t listen to these insensitive people who tell you to “stop whining” or that “somebody else has it worse”. Just because you are not in a wheel chair does not mean that you don’t suffer; people look at me and laugh when I tell them that I am hopeless and depressed– it takes courage to acknowledge the legitimacy of your own suffering and resolve to overcome it, rather than deny it like these “tough guys” with attitudes of “could be worse”. They are the real lazy cowards.

      But be proactive.
      You are not ugly. That’s an illusion. Supposedly I am extremely handsome, but I have always felt ugly as hell, inside and out. What we choose to interpret and ingest is what we will project, and people pick up on this. We are energetic beings.
      The adage of “I think, therefore I am” is dead on.

      My motto of late has been “Look forward, not sideways or backwards.” It’s hard, but try not to compare yourself to others. Our culture conditions us to compete with “The Joneses”; the truth is that they don’t exist. What you have, somebody else covets, and what you desire, somebody else possesses. Life doesn’t need to be that way.

      Anyway, a few suggestions:
      1. Develop a steady exercise regimen (It relieves stress, anxiety and sexual repression)
      2. Restructure your diet to incorporate A LOT of water (A natural appetite suppressant), complex carbs, simple proteins, and vitamins and minerals,
      3. Visualize your success. Set daily, weekly, monthly, yearly goals.
      4. Seek a doctor who will refer you to a dermatologist; explain to them the severity of your situation. They will fix it.
      5. Volunteer your time at a homeless shelter, VA Hospital, burn victims unit… Learn from others how they endure their hardship. I volunteer often, and it gives me a great sense of satisfaction, knowing that I am helping them, and they are helping me. Compassion makes you a nice person, and a happier one, too.
      6. You will make yourself the envy of your peers. Trust me, my friend, you will have the last laugh.
