How can I help my son's sensitive skin?

My son (14) cannot dry his legs with any sort of towel (cotton or microfibre) and has to drip dry otherwise the skin on his legs becomes really painful, itchy and stings, so much so that he’s in tears for two hours afterwards. The same feeling occurs when he wears football socks or chinos but seems ...

Molluscum contagiosum

Apparently, a few more children in her class have the same condition. She has been to a few play dates a...

Is it still stress?

I had been going through a period of stress last year and found it very difficult to sleep – both getting to sleep and sleep quality – tossing and turning and staying asleep. That stress has basically passed now but I still seem to have some residue issues left – I can go to sleep now easily but sti...

Bloating

I started getting bloating about 10 years ago when I hit my mid 30’s and was told by the doctor it was IBS. They advised that I go away and spending time thinking about my diet. I was very careful in what I ate and then slowly the bloating stopped and all was fine which was great! However, in recent...

Bladder problems

I have had bladder problems since before I even had my son; he is now 32! I keep getting palmed off, I have tried every medicine available, plus all the pelvic floor exercises. My appointment has now been put back until near the end of the year, which is even more annoying. I know that I am 63, but ...

Interstitial cystitis

I have interstitial cystitis (possibly as a result of Fibromyalgia). I have to omit many fruits, caffeine, coffee and probiotics from my diet as they all inflame it. Is there anything natural I can take to help with the symptoms or for the health of my bladder? I'm not keen on taking prescribed medi...

Stomas - fluid leaking

I have two stomas. A Urostomy and A high output one, officially a colostomy but I have 1.2 m of small bowel only. I have a clear liquid which constantly leaks from my vagina so I have to wear pads as well as having two bags. Any idea what this fluid is and where it comes from? (Bobbie)
