Hi,good morning!

I'm looking for a concealer that will not make the problem worse. (Fair skin tone). Better with some healing essential oils and without spirits.

I've been dealing with DH for the past seven months--it won't go away because there's iodine in my thyroid medication (ugh!). So, in order to hide the very prominent purple and red sores/scars, I've used Dior's Air Flash. Although it was developed to actually spray directly on a person's face, I spray a little into the palm of my hand and then use a small cosmetic brush to apply it only where I need coverage. My friends swear they can't see that my skin is at all damaged. This stuff is the best I've ever found. You can find it at Macy's, and they'll let you sample it right there. I also use the fairest shade. I have to admit, though, that it's a bit pricey; however, I've used the same can for over two years on nearly a daily basis.

I also use this product on scars on my lower leg--I'm finally able to wear shorts again. You really can't distinguish it from real skin--it doesn't look cakey or fake at all.

Thank You very much for the advice! We are in shortage of cosmetic brands. I was absolutely pleased with Shiseido Concealer Stick Nr.1 but now they discontinued. It's allright with the price,I need it not in so much amounts (but every day). Especially I liked it for staying on face while swimming. So I'm looking for smth similar,in a form of stick and with beeswack. Just to put it on the object and forget. I have tried Body Shop concealer but it's visible as a patch and not the right tone. Some other brands made the dermatitis worse (the creamy consistence and with brush).

FernW,have You tried essentional oils on the skin (Chamomelis,Tea Tee,Cinnamon etc)? Take a good base oil and mix in small amount of ess.oils,very calming :) . From the ready made I like Darphin,it's a wonder. My legs itch like hell,I have psoriase type patches and often wake up in the mornings scratching my legs. So the elbows,I had to buy some extra cashmere jumpers because I could't wear lambs wool (I'm from North,our winters are terribly cold). I got rid of my elbow patches just by putting there Darphin oil mix and vaselin containing cream. Where have I been earlier??

    • Do a little research?  Google and then check out the manufacturers and see what is available in your area?  Read some threads about products that people are discussing and look them up?  I think most of us know what we can get in our area but would have no clue about where companies ship to or how they handle wholesale transactions. You haven't said what type of business - a bakery? Grocery?  Restaurant?   I think that if you are really serious about a "gluten-free business" you would put a bit of work into it. 
    • That doctor is delaying unnecessarily! If he's been sick for 2 months already, another 3 months is cruel and unusual.
    • IT could be many things, I find I have a gastric dumping issue with some meals, I know some food intolerance I have will trigger it. I know If I do not start my day with a big glass of hot liquid and magnesium and have it before a meal, that meal will sit it my stomach till it makes me sick and vomit it up 4-6 hours later. I know for me meats do not digest. they just sit in my stomach til I vomit them back up. Animal fats and certain oils do not digest same thing. just float in my stomach til I puke them up when they start going rancid in my stomach 4-6 hours later. I find digestive enzymes are a MUST. I take 2-4 times the suggested dosing, and even extra bromine with heavy protein meals.

      There is another issue where some people have weak stomach acid there for the stomach does not digest food nor dump it. If you have this issue then betaine hcl will help this. For me it was not my acid but a enzyme issue.
    • I want to establish a gluten free business and i want to know the accredited suppliers for gluten free products in order not to get cheated by fake products from suppliers  is there a list available ? And can they export to other countries ?!  Thanks 
    • I am sorry that your daughter (and you) are experiencing this.  After diagnosis, celiacs need adequate follow-up care.  When was the last time her antibodies were checked?  Have they come down?  Are they still very elevated?  This link verifies what I said: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ By testing you can help rule out active celiac disease.  It can take most celiacs a year or years to recover from celiac disease and all the collateral damage that can come with it.   Then you might consider a dietician who is knowledgeable about celiac disease.  Often going gluten free is not enough.  People tend to just find substitutes for their already unhealthy food choices.  She should focus on fresh fruits, veggies, meat, nuts, dairy, legumes, rice, etc.  and avoid processed foods until she has really mastered the diet.  The learning curve is so steep!  Read our Newbie 101 thread found at the top of our Coping section.  It contains helpful tips.   Autoimmune thyroid is very common with celiac disease.  Be sure to have her thyroid checked and antibodies tested for the thyroid as well even if other thyroid lab markers are okay.   Besides the lack of periods, have her other symptoms improved?   I wish you both well!  As a Mom myself, I get the worry!  We want our kids to be safe and healthy!    I am glad you are championing her health!   Oh, did the rest of the family get tested even if symptom free?
