  1. Ladies Only....feminine Problems?

    Hi there - I hope you don't mind me butting in on this one - I get itching down "there" because I, as was mentioned earlier in the post, get candida. I rarely suffer with thrush, but has affected my nether regions before, plus I used to wake in the night with uncontrolable itching on my legs, esp after I'd just shaved, which wouldn't go away, until I had scratched them until I bled...yuk.... So might be worth getting an anti-fungal cream. Hope that helps.
  2. Could This Be Dh?

    Hi there - I'm new to the board (and from the UK!) I've been desparately trying to search the net to find out what is happening to my hands. Ok, a brief history, I have digestive probs, food intolerences, candida overgrowth, and raynauds and as its bloody freezing over here at the moment its not helping. I thought I was getting to grips with all the above, now I have developed itchy rashy spots on my right hand. Starts off as a little clear nodule that itches, then grows bigger, develops a white inside (although its not pus'y or blistery, perfectly hard, and a purple ring around the white. Another one on my little finger which itched so much I scratched it and now its open, although I don't think anything has come out of it pus-wise. Tends to only itchy when my hands are hot/warm, as I get Raynauds this is a rarity, but when I do the washing up as soon as I put my hands in the water they start itching again.....argh, its annoying. Saw a pharmacist today who said go to the doctor, have had a nightmare with doctors as they aren't sympathetic to the problems I suffer with, so have done everything herbally!! I'm worried about the spots because they aren't anything I've had before. I happened upon scleroderma which is linked to raynauds and also DH, and my sores are very similar to the person who linked her pics to this forum. Have had tests for celiac and they were negative, although the test was just a blood test, which can come back neg even when it isn't! ANY help would be gratefully received as I REALLY don't want to have to go to the docs again, plus I can't take time off of work at the moment what with the Xmas rush!! Thanks for reading. Ant.
