    What is this?

    For several months I’ve been getting these severe itches all along my back, doctor thought it was eczema but the cortisone and other creams I was prescribed didnt really work.

    Lactase? or something else?

    I developed a rash on my underarms and sides beneath my bra. It could be from my lactase enzyme or something else. The rash recently spread to my back and arms. It itches so bad, it keeps me up at night. Any ideas on what this is?

  • Rinsing Neti pot with tap water before using distilled

    I visited my sister in Connecticut this past weekend. I wrapped my Neti pot in some cloth to prevent it from breaking. I rinsed it out in her sink, and then poured distilled water and saline solution into it. While rinsing my nose, I realized I smelled something mildew-like. I don't know if it was my sister's handtowel, the Neti pot, or her gross soap. I washed it with the gross soap, cleaned out the water as well as I could and then rinsed the other side. Do you think it's possible I'll....
