How to get rid of eczema and rash forever?

Please help

admin answers:

You cannot get rid of eczema if you have it you will always have it but the outbreaks will come and go and there are a lot of things you can do to treat the outbreaks, heat such as summer time and fever from being ill can cause outbreaks as well, olive oil is a good natural way to moisturize the outbreak you have to be very careful what you use because allergic reactions to anything can also cause an outbreak or one to be worse, it is basically sever dry skin, pure vaseline is also very good and Aveeno makes very good products that are natural just for this, you can also try dead sea skin products, after you shower try to take a bath with like some olive oil in your bath water or one of the Aveeno eczema products they have special for baths even the baby one is ok for adults, also I head that fish oil and Vitamin E are supposed to be really good try to get natural products though real natural products

How long till my breasts stop leaking?

To start please don’t knock me not breast feeding… I tried with my 1st & I ended up with clogged ducts & not able to produce enough milk…

my milk took 3 days to come in and I’m through the painful gonna die breasts but I’m still leaking 2 days later…

about how long will it take from the not gonna explode (lol) part will it take?

admin answers:

It takes months, even longer sometimes, to fully “dry up”. I do not know when engorgement will go down, but weeks at the LEAST. I am not going to knock you for not bf, I don’t know your situation (but I would not feel right if I didn’t say everyone gets clogged ducts at first, then supply adjusts -which to the inexperienced looks like not producing enough… Chances are you were fine, even if baby was crying -that is what babies do sometimes!)

anyways, monitor yourself for fever and rash -symptoms of mastitis.
Cold compress & cabbage leaves. Try not to stimulate breasts at ALL, as that keeps encouraging production. That means NO heat, don’t let water run over breasts in shower, don’t massage, don’t let s/o touch, etc.

What is your experience with cloth nappies/diapers?

I am pregnant with twins and trying to decide if cloth nappies are worth it? I have seen some that look good on websites like www.cottonbottom.com.au designer, fitted attractive cloth nappies. Has anyone used cloth nappies? what are your thoughts? is the never ending washing too much trouble? or are the cost saving and environmental benefits really worth it? Would love to hear peoples thoughts

admin answers:

I love love love my cloth diapers and you couldn’t pay me to switch to nasty disposables. People talk about leaks with cloth… I just recently went on vacation and took disposables for “convenience”. Ugh!! He leaked through them and the poo up the back thing NEVER happens withmy cloth diapers, the covers keep that stuff in! Yuck! I was so glad to get home and get my little one back into his cloth diapers. It’s not that much laundry. For one baby, I do 2 extra loads a week. And they are small loads. If I had more diapers I could go once a week and just do a large load of wash. Or with 2 babies, it would just be 2 larger loads a week. Yes, newborns go through a lot of diapers at first, no matter what kind they are. But after a month or so, it slows down and cloth is awesome and reusable and cheap cheap cheap after the initial investment.

Also, the cloth gives you rashes thing is a myth. The only time cloth gives rashes is when there is a problem with the way you wash them, usually from people putting in too much soap thinking it gets them cleaner. Do a little research on washing and then use the simplest way, a detergent without additives and no fabric softeners. You don’t need fancy detergents or special ways of washing. A pre-rinse or extra rinse at the end is about as extra work as I put in and I only do that when I feel it’s necessary. My son only gets rashes from those chemical filled disposables. He does a lit better with natural cotton against his skin.

Speaking of nature, a baby goes through about 8,000 diapers before potty training. That’s 16,000 for twins. That’s 16,000 nasty little stink bombs that won’t end upon a landfill that was never designed to handle human waste. In fact, if you look, most packages of disposables recommend you drop the waste into the toilet before disposing of the diaper. That’s because human waste wrapped in plastic and chemicals is bad for the environment!

Plus, go to the store and look at how much diapers cost each. Then multiply that by 16,000 diapers and see how much money you will save using cloth! Btw, you can factor in about $1-2 a week for the cost of water, heat, and energy to wash and dry cloth diapers. You can even factor in the extra detergent (since you use half the amount of soap for cloth diapers, one load worth washes 2) you will still be saving a TON of money even when you figure in the cost of the diapers. You can find good deals online for cloth diapers too, if you just look in the right places.

Cloth is way easier than people make it out to be and far far superior when you consider the benefits to your family’s finances coupled with the enormous ecological benefits.

Michael asks…

what the the little points on the body mean?

When i pass my hand on my 3 months old baby, I feel it not so soft, he has some Not pinpals, but i feel small irritation (not red). i asked the question about water to see if can be dihydration, but all the answers said no water now. It is good to tell you that we live in Dubai, so the aircondition is on all the time in the house. We will go see the doctor tomorrow, but i wanted to have an idea of your experiences. Thank you.

admin answers:

Yes, you better go to the doctor on that one. If it’s not goose pimples, I’m not sure what it is. Could it be a heat rash? Good luck!

Donna asks…

Mums does your baby wear a vest?

My son always has a bodysuit vest (onsie) on under his clothes or PJ’s even in the summer he has a sleeveless one one (unless its scorching hot) Most days at the moment he’s in a long sleeved vest under his clothes.

I keep seeing my friends baby and she is never wearing a vest – seriously, its the middle of winter here right now and her little tummy is always poking out from whatever she is wearing. Brrrrrrrrrrr!

admin answers:

Yes definitely. Apart from anything, a lot of baby clothes aren’t all that comfortable for them when directly on the skin (there’s labels and things to itch) and I am also reassured that they are warm enough.
My SIL doesn’t put one on hers at night, but her baby gets very warm easily and gets heat rash. Plus I don’t think their central heating is ever off!
Babies don’t maintain heat the way we do, I’m surprised that mother isn’t more concerned.

Mark asks…

HAS ANYONE HAD LIKE RED CIRCLE LOOKING THINGS ON THEIR BODY WHILE PREGNANT?

I have these red looking circles on my stomach and thighs.WORRIED! what are they?

admin answers:

I found this web site that had three things that were closely related to what you had. I didn’t copy all eleven but you can look up the website with the link. When I was pregnant I got heat rash really bad. I got red bumps on my stomach and legs. I also got them around my bra line. It was any where there was little air and where I was sweating alot. It didn’t help these areas got rubbed by my clothing alot. If it really worries you go to the Dr., but to me it didn’t sound like ring worm.

11 COMMON SKIN CHANGES DURING PREGNANCY

3. Acne. You probably thought your pimple days were over. While the acne of pregnancy is rarely as severe as that of adolescence, you may need to return to some of your teenage cleansing rituals. Fortunately, pregnancy is much shorter than adolescence; the bumps and pimples will subside shortly after delivery. Avoid abrasive scrubs or exfoliants; pregnant skin is too sensitive for these. Milder, oatmeal-based facial scrubs (available at nutrition stores) can help unplug the oily pores, and are much kinder to sensitive skin. Because of the risk of birth defects, the anti-acne prescription drugs Accutane and Retin-A cannot be used during pregnancy.

9.Heat rash. You may think that only babies get prickly heat rash, but pregnant women do, too. Caused by the combination of an already overheated pregnant body, dampness from excessive perspiration, and the friction of skin rubbing against itself or against clothing, prickly heat rash is pimply and slightly irritating. It is most common in the crease between and beneath the breasts, in the crease where the bulge of the lower abdomen rubs against the top of the pubic area, and on the inner thighs.

11. Pimply eruptions. Around one percent of pregnant women experience itchy, red, raised patches on their abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and extremities. This condition is called pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (dubbed PUPP). It tends to come and go during the second half of pregnancy and nearly always disappears shortly after delivery. Treat this the same as any other itchy skin eruption.
