Itch, coping, treatment

Good morning my lovely Flaymers. Hope you are all doing very well? I have had pain in my thumbs these past couple of days but I think it could be because of season change?

My Thumbs are better this morning. Maybe I have inflammation somewhere. I have also changed my shampoo for the past 3 weeks. My scalp has been itching a lot but I thought it could be from my diet. Now I know it must be from the Amla Shampoo I've used. I've washed my hair with my tar shampoo last night and this morning my scalp is much better. Not a lot of itching going on there so far.

Hello Michelle, Worst times i found in the past for joint pain, is when winter turns to spring.I have a bad hand at the moment but from the top of it , not wrist as i thought it was,i dont know how that happened?Shoulder aches but been like that for i dont know how many months, well since i did those press ups last summer, i can put up with it though, back isslightly better than last week thank goodness,I amsorry about the head itching and glad you have eliminated that now by going backto you shampoo you usually use,also your thumbs are better too, Most my quirks i think is down to my job, lifting etc as i dont get joint poin at the moment, Season changes can effect me too probably like most of us, mine used to be when turning to spring from cold to getting warm, maybe i still get that slight? :)

We all seem to be dealing with pain this time around.. I had an abscess removed under my arm ... well another 4 have popped up next to it ..I refuse to go get cut again ..I have never had that in my life so I really don't know what's happening to my body .. I'm on a months course of antibiotics plus taking my P meds.... my poor body is being hammered with meds................

Thank you Bev. Seems like the season change is definitely not good for any of us.
Ellen, I'm so sorry to hear about it. What does your Doctor say about the abscesses that's just popping up? Oil glands maybe? I know that when one gets the abscess under arm pits it could be because our skin barrier is broken and bacteria enters the skin, so the abscess forms as your body's defenses trying to kill these germs with your inflammatory response, but one can also get it from sweat or oily skin. My dad used to get them a lot. He just had to take his antibiotics and make sure he looks after himself. He had an oily skin. I know that he used to detox a lot when he got the abscesses. I do hope you will get better. I can imagine how you must feel. BIG hug to you xx
Hi John. Oh yes, depends on the type of work you do as well. When I lift heavy parcels I can feel it in my thumbs. I'll be okay thank you. At least you only have the tennis elbow in one arm only now so its improving I'd say ;) Give it time and take it easy. Oh we are all falling apart in one way or the other. :)

True Michelle, seems why most of us are here :)

Thanx Bev , John & Michelle... nothing has changed in the things I do & eat.
The doctor said he thinks it was an ingrown hair that caused the 1st abscess .. I haven't been back as I don't want him to cut the others out & Im still taking the antibiotics so hopefully it will clear them...
Couple of my friends suggested I take " Opening Medicine " ...hahahaaaaaaaaaa that will be my Detox :-)


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Yeas those can be painful, yes mine started with ingrown hair, I had it cut open and packed and was a pain,took months to heal up fully, Sorry about this Ellen


Ellen
Ellen @ellen4

Pain is something we seem to all have back today leg tomorrow don't know where tomorrow


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

hahaha Ellen. Yes I'd rather stay with the detox as I do not like doctors. You go in for a checkup and come out with a terminal illness. I'm too scared to go there. I hope your arm will be better soon :)
Golly, Lets hope none of us get any pain tomorrow. :)
