Definition From Wikipedia:

Putting cream to treat hivesUrticaria (from the Latin urtica, nettle,) commonly referred to as hives, is a kind of skin rash notable for pale red, raised, itchy bumps. Hives might also cause a burning or stinging sensation.

Hives are frequently caused by allergic reactions; however, there are many nonallergic causes. Most cases of hives lasting less than six weeks (acute urticaria) are the result of an allergic trigger.

Chronic urticaria (hives lasting longer than six weeks) is rarely due to an allergy.

“The majority of chronic hives cases have an unknown (idiopathic) cause.

In perhaps as many as 30–40% of patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria, it is caused by an autoimmune reaction. Acute viral infection is another common cause of acute urticaria (viral exanthem).

Less common causes of hives include friction, pressure, temperature extremes, exercise, and sunlight.”

If you have a fairly severe or chronic case of hives, you should see a physician for diagnosis and help in treating the condition.

 

“… I have taken to using it on my entire body, and the softness is unbelievable. Rashes go right away. Hives disappear. Cuts heal in a day. I believe there are things that this cream clears up that aren’t even documented.”

Arm ScarScars are areas of fibrous tissue (fibrosis) that replace normal skin after injury.

A scar results from the biological process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body.

Thus, scarring is a natural part of the healing process.

With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound (e.g. after accident, disease, or surgery) results in some degree of scarring. [source= Wikipedia].

“I began using your cream as a treatment for eczema. I had terrible scarring on my legs and arms. After about a week of use the scars were fading and the itch was gone. I will never stop using this product.” – S.B.

Cuts and Scrapes

Srcaped kneeDealing with a minor cut or scrape is mostly just common sense. Small cuts and scrapes typically will heal without medical intervention.

But if the cut gets infected, you should see your local physician.

Here is a simple routine you can follow…

The first thing you need to do is stop the bleeding.

To do this, gently hold a soft, clean cloth against the wound for several minutes. How long depends on how much bleeding is occurring. You may need to keep pressing the cloth for a longer period of time to get the bleeding to stop.

Once the bleeding has stopped, if there are small particles of dirt or debris on or around the cut or scrape, you will need to very gently remove those particles.

You can clean a cut or scrape by gently running warm water over it for several minutes, then carefully apply soap to the area around the cut and rinse clean.

Once all the bleeding has stopped and the cut or scrape has been cleaned and is dry, you can apply a bandage, soft gauze or other standard bandage material to the cut. You may want to apply some antibiotic spray or ointment around the cut or scrape before applying the bandage. This can help prevent infection.

Again, if the cut or scrape does shows signs of infection, you should see your physician for medical treatment.

“I used your skin cream on cuts, scrapes and even a bruise I once had which this cream has gotten rid of practically overnight. I am 17 years old and have been using your skin cream for over a month and a half now and I believe this cream does wonders.” – R. Haylon, Burbank CA

Bruised thighOn WebMD they state that “Bruising easily does not mean that you have a serious health problem, especially if bruising is minimal or only shows up once in a while.

Women bruise more easily than men, especially from minor injuries on the thighs, buttocks, and upper arms.”

There are times though when bruises can signify an underlying health condition that needs to be addressed – especially those bruises that seem to appear for no reason at all and won’t go away or if you bruise easily and frequently.

In such cases, you should consult your physician for a diagnosis and possible treatment.

Everyday bruises, on the other hand, are usually simply annoying. Some people that bruise too easily, but are generally healthy, have found that they may be deficient in Vitamin C.

Reader’s Digest has a few tips in this article that you can apply at home such as applying ice, followed by a heating pad, wrapping elastic bandages around arm or leg bruises to prevent blood vessels from leaking, or applying fresh parsley leaves crushed and spread over the bruise, etc.

“Your skin care has helped my skin to show an over all clarity. It heals blemishes and also clears up a bruise mark within a few days. I hope to continue using this great cream as long as possible.” – V.B.

What Is Fibromyalgia?

fibromyalgia tender pointsAccording to an article in Wikipedia, fibromyalgia “is characterized by chronic widespread pain and allodynia (a heightened and painful response to pressure).”

The origin or root of the term “fibromyalgia” means “muscle and connective tissue pain”. According to some articles on the net, including these excerpts from Wikipedia, there is a lot of controversy concerning this condition:

“… there is controversy as to the cause and nature of fibromyalgia, as well as how patients are described by those with differing opinions of the disease in the medical community.”

…”The International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) lists fibromyalgia as a diagnosable disease under “Diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue” and states that fibromyalgia syndrome should be classified as a functional somatic syndrome rather than a mental disorder. ”

But the fact is, regardless of any controversies, many people suffer from its symptoms. There are several key points on the body where FM sufferers can be very sensitive to pressure because it causes definite pain. Refer to the above image.

“I first used this product as a moisturizer, especially on my face. Soon I discontinued use of several expensive cosmetic products I had been using for years. Later I began to notice that applying Corium 21 to my ankles, knees and elbows not only moisturized them, but also eased some of the pain I experience with Fibromyalgia. Because I found this product so helpful, I talked my mother and sister into trying it as well.” – J.R.

Beautiful African American womanWhy do people of color sometimes have “ashy” skin on their elbows, knees, heels or other parts of the body?

Actually, ashy skin is just dry skin. And people of all colors are subject to dry skin.

It’s just that very dry skin tends to turn a white or grayish color which is why it is referred to as “ashy,” and this shows up more on darker complexions because of the contrast in color.

When the skin doesn’t have enough natural water, the outer layer gives off too much moisture which causes the skin to lose its supple, smooth texture and appear dry, flaky and rough.

Handling Dry, Ashy Skin

Anything you use to try and get rid of ashy skin should be very mild and must moisturize the skin.

“My skin literally used to be so dry it hurt, and nothing worked. After a few days using Corium – I use it everywhere, including my face, I was shocked at how much better my skin felt. I’ve used it religiously ever since.” – Karen

arthritisThe US National Library of Medicine says that “If you feel pain and stiffness in your body or have trouble moving around, you might have arthritis.

“Most kinds of arthritis cause pain and swelling in your joints. Joints are places where two bones meet, such as your elbow or knee. Over time, a swollen joint can become severely damaged. Some kinds of arthritis can also cause problems in your organs, such as your eyes or skin.”

Many people suffer from this condition, particularly people in their late 50’s or older, but even younger people have been known to get some forms of arthritis.

Arthritis is a term that covers numerous medical conditions. Some infections or allergic reactions may bring on the condition for a short-term. Physically stressful jobs can result in arthritis, as can injuries, and even some foods. Hereditary factors can also come into play.

“I have one knee with severe arthritis and one with slight arthritis. After walking all over Las Vegas for the last five hours, both were feeling very swollen and sore. I had the skin cream rubbed into the severe knee and within just two or three minutes, it was very, very, very comfortable. And now it feels better than my mildly affected knee. I am so amazed.” – K.H.

Liver spot on the skin of an old personTo quote from an informative article on age spots in Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia…

Liver spots (also known as “solar lentigo,” “lentigo senilis,” “old age spot,” “senile freckle”) are blemishes on the skin associated with aging and exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun.

“They range in color from light brown to red or black.

They are located in areas most often exposed to the sun, particularly the hands, face, shoulders, arms and forehead, and the scalp if bald.”

“The age spots derive their name from the fact that they were once incorrectly believed to be caused by liver problems, but they are physiologically unrelated to the liver, save for a similar color. From the age of 40 onward, the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure, and liver spots are very common in this age group, particularly in those who spend time in the sun.

“In the vast majority of cases, liver spots pose no threat and require no treatment, though they occasionally have been known to obscure the detection of skin cancer. However, despite being a benign condition, liver spots are sometimes considered unsightly and some people choose to have them removed. This can be done by electrosurgery, laser treatment or cryotherapy.”

Home Remedies?
lemon slicesAloe Vera, lemon juice, lemon slices, apple cider vinegar and onions, Vitamin E and other ingredients have long been used, either singly or in various combinations, by people attempting to lighten up several things, such as freckles and even hair.

But some people can get allergic reactions to these ingredients, so always use caution.

“Try putting lemon slices or juice over your age spots every few hours. The juice might help bleach the skin to a lighter color [source: Hamptonian]. Similarly, you also could try laying slices of potato on your spots to see if it helps.”

As always, consult a physician if you think you have a potentially dangerous skin problem.

“Well I have been using the cream every day for 2 years now and have not had Impetigo since, plus my age spots and blemishes have drastically faded, and my skin tone is better. I also use it on my hands after a heavy day of house cleaning or painting – you know the rough chapped hands.

I recommend the Corium 21 cream to others who I think need to give it a try.”
