Dear B



Thank you for your question. Without looking at the lesion in question I cannot offer you an informed opinion. If it is something that continues to grow or continues to remain painful or sensitive I would recommend having a doctor look at it and possibly perform an excision biopsy.



Many thanks and warm regards

Dear G

Thank you for your question. It is always difficult to diagnose skin conditions because there are only a limited number of ways in which our skin as an organ can express discomfort and ill-health. That is why a thorough history is very important when diagnosing symptoms such as the one you describe. Unfortunately the information you provide is insuficient to provide an accurate diagnosis and the best I can do is try to make general suggestions that may help.

Firstly think back to when the symptoms first began - what changed in your life? Did you begin a new skin product? Did you eat or drink anything new or strange-tasting? Did you travel somewhere new or where you exposed to a new environment? Look for a stimulus or initiating factor and then cut it out from your life. Secondly do you have any chronic diseases like diabetes of hypertension? These are independently known to cause symptoms similar to those your describe. Where on your body is the burning the worst? What makes it better or worse? I would advise discussing these questions with your GP or Dermatologist in an effort to investigate the underlying cause to the symptom you are experiencing.

With regards to treatment the first and foremost principle is to treat the cause, and not just the symptom. Once you have deduced the cause make efforts to reduce or eliminate it from your life and slowly but surely your skin will recover. In the interim you can try soothing topical treatments such as calamine lotion, or try a mixture of one of the following oils in a chemical-free body lotion or cream applied twice daily to the affected areas: tea tree, chamomile, violet, myrrh, lavender or marigold. Lukewarm baths are also known to provide temporarily relief.

If these measures do not work while you are trying to elicit the cause you can temporarily try a topical corticosteroid cream, but for a maximum of 3-4 days. Please discuss this with your doctor before commencing because if the skin is in any way damaged or friable then these are not indicated. Please do not hesitate to contact us at healthnation.co.za for further advice or an appointment if required.

Many thanks and warm regards

There are a whole range of potential side effects from medicines and it could well be the case. However, natural medicines have lower side effect profiles so the rash could be related to something else as well such as change in weather, viral illness and contact dermatitis (allergy from chemicals). I would recommend that you take the normal dose of Probliflora and Omegas as recommended by the manufacturer and that you visit either your doctor or our Natural Medicine Dispensary for further advice. The rash will most likely settle. You can use an antihistamine to assist with the itchiness. Kind regards Dr Sean Gomes
