    eczema on face

    Hi, I've been having a problem with eczema on my face very regularly. i was prescribed a cream but it just comes right back after i stop using it. my skin is always itchy, red, sore and flakey. is there any other way I'm able to control this as it is becoming very bothersome. Could something i am eating or my skin care routine be causing this? i just don't know how to keep it under control.

    Itching but no rash or irritation..

    I've had this spot on my shoulder blade that has been itching in the same place for a few months now. There is no rash, no sign of anything in the spot where it is itching, but it itches like crazy! Should I be concerned, or is this rather common??

    Taking Cephalexin while having sexual relationship with someone who is allergic to penicillin

    I got an infection in my toe and got some Cephalexin prescribed for it. I've read that there might be a chance that people who are allergic to penicillin could get a reaction from Cephalexin. I'm not allergic to penicillin, but my girlfriend is severely allergic to it. I was wondering if taking Cephalexin could potentially cause a reaction for my girlfriend through sexual interactions (or even just kissing)? Thanks in advance.

    Lifelong chronic symptoms rapidly reduced after taking potassium. Unknown cause. Would appreciate any theories or ideas!

    I’m very interested in your theories for my undiagnosed condition. I’m a 30 year old male that has suffered from a long list of chronic severe symptoms for most of my life. Dozens of specialists consultations and different tests and treatments have yielded no results. Recently, I tried a potassium gluconate supplement. I experienced rapid and dramatic reduction in all of my symptoms. This effect has been repeatable for 2 months. If I stop the supplementation, the symptoms return within a day. Severe....

    A hard painful lump on my ankle that refuses to go

    I have had this hard lump on my ankle for 2 months now, and it only gets painful by the day. I have no idea what might have caused it. It is now so painful that it is making even walking difficult. I'm totally confused as to what this actually is. I have attached pictures, please take a look and help me if you can identify what this is and suggest some solution.

    I itch all over my body

    I started itching all over my body a few hours after walking through a park and being bitten by mosquitoes. The itch is like a rash. Could I be more allergic to mosquitoes saliva than just at the bite sight? It's been 3 days, I live in Florida and it at times eases up with cold compresses; but not so much with Benadryl. Any other cause or remedy I need to know about?

    Can a person be allergic to Salt?

    I really think I am. I've asked doctors but they kinda dismiss it. When I put myself on a special diet with no salt EVERYTHING changed. I've also read that a lack of salt can trigger an allergy-type reaction. Has anybody heard ANYTHING like this?
