- Has any body experienced a skin problem like mine (1 answer)
5 months ago started feeling a sensation around waist line especially clothing tags stitches, and poly blends.There was no rash. Then after a few weeks started feeling same thing between shoulder blades,with sweating down back,shirts became uncomfortable. Noticed what seemed like a rash appear on upper back, started to become uncomfortable in the heat, started sweating more than normal. The rash spread down my back,then over my shoulders ,upper chest, and upper arms.Skin got real prickly, couldn't tolerate heat,My skin started to feel like it was crawling.Went to a dermatologist & was prescribed a cortisone based steroid cream,for prickly heat rash. after 5 days my skin looked like a bad sunburn, tried to go back but Dr. was out of town for 3 weeks, went to a clinic was prescribed prednisone oral for 12 days, rash got better but never fully resolved,with my job as a plumber in Florida I can,t avoid the heat, humidity so my condition came back with a vengeance. I felt like I was having an alergic reaction. I stopped all my meds except lotensin htc 2 times a day.Went to my family Dr. and he thought I might be allergic to the lotensin so he took me off I started feeling better so i started back with Amalodipine & sertraline and my condition still didn't resolve. Went back to Dermatologist and he put me back on oral steroids for 14 days condition got better but still hasn't resolved I'm on the weaning dose of the steroids and i feel like i'm getting worse again. I have stopped all meds. The only thing I was wondering about is I have a few drinks of bourbon on the week end and alcohol has always flushed my skin but nothing like this. I take 3 cool showers.use antibacterial soap, changed laundry soap I don't want any thing contacting my skin I try wearing cotton it"s been 5 long hot months and I feel my rope is getting shorter Any help out there could this be prickly heat, along with a drug allergy, if so how long does it take to rid your system and start repairing your skin.Just a follow up I have been sensitive to polyester for ever and always have to cut out the clothing tags that contact my skin.Help
- Does cinnamon cause bleeding of the nose? (1 answer)
Nose bleed 24 hours after taking a 1 tablespoon of cinnamon mixed with honey.
I have taken cinnamon mixed with honey to help my diabetes for over a year. I started having nose bleeds on a regular about six months ago. I stopped taking the mixture for over two weeks and did not have a nose bleed during that time. Last night and this morning I started taking the mixture again and this afternoon I had another nose bleed. Could the cinnamon and honey mixture be the cause?

blood work has come back showing elevated potassium levels now for at least a couple of years; in addition to kidney issues - could the polethylene Glycol be the problem? What are the long term effects of staying on this as it works very well to relieve constipation. I take it every night.

Three tendon ruptures of hands while on these meds.
