My wife (Julie) was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October of 2015. She had taken Chantix to quit smoking in 2012 and was successful with quitting. However she did gain quite a bit of weight. She was 56 when diagnosed and 57 when she died July 31st, 2016 from complications from a whipple procedure to remove her tumor. Where they peeled the tumor away from her artery a small hole developed two days after her surgery and she started bleeding. The next two days were horrific as they tried to correct this problem but never could. It was a bad break since we felt she was doing so good after surgery and looked like her battle with cancer was over for awhile. She had faced it with extreme bravery and was almost there, but she was taken from us --just like that. I do not blame anyone. They did all they could do. I feel her cancer was caused from chantix since it changed her body characteristics so much. She was a healthy eater even though she did gain the weight. Oh well--thought I would share. John Manuel
A rash suddenly started to appear on my face (mostly forehead) around 6 months ago. It's red with tiny bumps in various spots, and some larger pimple-like bumps have recently started to appear. It was diagnosed as seborrheic dermatitis. It's not classic seborrheic dermatitis in that it doesn't itch and isn't flaking at all. I've been experimenting, and am hoping someone here has some experience that will be helpful to me. I have oily skin that I wash twice daily, once with a salicylic acid scrub, and once with Cetaphil lotion. I was prescribed (generic) Lotrisone and Ketoconazole by a dermatologist. He strongly favored Ketoconazole, but it doesn't help and actually seems to cause pimples and to make it spread. Lotrisone keeps it under control, but the rash returns as soon as I stop using it. I discovered recently that sun exposure can clear it up completely without medication. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Am I stuck with this (and using a steroid cream) for the rest of my life, or is there something like a "cure" or effective over-the-counter treatment that doesn't involve steroids? I'll try to upload a photo of what it looked like before I started to treat it (after a period of experimenting with Ketoconazole-only for 2 weeks, it's currently much worse). I'm a 63-year-old male in good health with Mediterranean ancestry. Thanks ahead of time.

How do I get rid of the huge rash on my legs which I think is from Metformin? The rash on my arms which covered an area about 3" x 8" went away with steroid cream from the dermatologist. Nothing helps the rash on my legs which is round or oval-shaped red ar, rough areas. Very red, dry and ...
On day 12 of chantix and dreams are more than I can take. Not monsters or ghosts, but my worst fears coming to life losing a child or my husband or parents etc in horrid ways. Dreams so real I wake up bawling and screaming. I remember every detail for days and it put me in a depressed fog. ...

Hi just wondering if the rash y'all have is called lechnoid drug eruption? I have even able to figure out what is causing it, I thought it was garcina Cambodia and started a new vitamin that contains chromium and the rash started again😭
