Help for Dog with Skin Problems

Our dog has some sort of skin problem which is causing her skin to flake and give off an oder. I bought some over the counter skin-problem shampoo and have been washing her with this, but it hasn't worked yet. (I'm washed her with it about three times). I'm newly single and finances are tight right now, I don't see how I can afford to take her to the vet! Does any one have any home remedies or suggestions?

Have You Had Any Cosmetic Surgery?

I so badly want a tummy tuck. I am fed up with working so hard by exercising and eating right and not seeing any results in my middle area. I've been mistaken for being pregnant one too many times now and I live in a state that gets way too hot for far too long at a time to wear body shapers every day. So the time has come, I need to start looking into getting at least a consult done. So what questions should I be asking when it comes to cosmetic surgery? I plan on getting at least two different opinions but want to make sure I'm also...

Psoriasis or Eczema

I have these patches of dry skin on my ankles. It's either Psoriasis or Eczema, I have been to the different doctors and they say both. I have tried everything I can get my hands on to get rid of it but nothing works. Some things work temporarily, but nothing long term.

Hives! Hives! Hives! I Keep Breaking Out in Hives!

Have any of you every had problems with Hives? I keep breaking out with them on my neck. My husband thinks it's stress. I've made sure my lotions & soaps are free of dyes & smells, but I still keep getting them. Are there certain foods that make you get hives? Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what did you do? I buy lots of cortizone & take Benadryl, but I'd like to stop it from happening, not treat the symptoms.

Duration of Jaundice

My son had very high levels of billiruben a few days after being born. He spent a couple of days under bili-lights in the hospital. He is doing better now. However he still has traces of jaundice in his mouth and on the white part of his eye. He is now 6 weeks old. I'm wondering how long before it completely goes away and/or is it normal to have traces of it this long.

Rosacea After Baby

Hi Moms- I am desperate for a solution. I was diagnosed with Rosacea, and given Metrogel to use. I haven't noticed an improvement, it's been a month. I am looking for any kind of remedy, or dietary advice. When I look on the web the information is overwhelming and conflicting. I have seen some literature on the connection between Rosacea and aspartame, so I am trying to quit drinking diet cokes (that is my only vice!). Has anyone else found success with eliminating asparatame or any other item from diet, to help manage Rosacea? Thanks!!

2 Y/o with Wart on Hand

My 2 year old daughter has what appears to be a wart on her hand, right in the crease where her ring finger meets her palm. It is fairly large, she picks at it occasionally but it doesn't otherwise seem to be bothering her. I am hesitant to ask to have it removed because not only would that be probably traumatic, but it seems like it would be a very difficult location to keep bandaged and cleaned afterwards. The over-the-counter wart creams all seem to contain salicylic acid, which my older daughter is highly allergic to, so I am hesitant...
