Early miscarriage

On behalf of Sarah: I'm in my early 30's and have become pregnant for the third time. I miscarried on my first 2 at 6 and 8 weeks and am obviously concerned that it will happen again.

18 and short menstrual cycle

On behalf of Hayley:
My last two menstrual cycles have been very short, 21 and 18 days respectively. My normal cycle is 28 days and I bleed for 5 days. The length and heaviness of my periods has remained the same. I am a bit worried that this isn't normal. Do I need to see my GP about this?

Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis

From TH member - I have psoriasis (recently diagnosed) and am very concerned about the fact I am more likely to get psoriatic arthritis now. I have read that 30% of people will go on to get PA which sounds like a very high percentage. Can you please offer some advice - for example is there anything ...

red, dry patches of skin

I have had Blepharitis ever since I had my cataracts out 5 years ago and manage it with wipes and liquid tears. Lately, however, my left eyelid has become red and itchy plus I have flaky patches on my scalp and in my outer ears (for which the doctor gave me cortisone cream that doesn't always work)....

Can bee allergies worse?

from Sarah:
My partner keeps bees - however when he has been stung before his arms swell up and are hot and tight to the touch. To me it looks like an allergy. He's not has any sort of anaphylactic reactions - but is it possible that it can worsen?

2 year old has very bad eczema

Hello My 2 year old daughter has always suffered badly with eczema since she was born (diagnosed by my GP). I use a moisturiser on her daily and have tried various brands, none of which seem to help. When her eczema flares up badly (which it does often) she is given various steroid creams to help. R...
