Nice Article Vandana.
Just last to last year I got these Milia…i got really scared…i never had any skin problem and suddenly this thing. there were almost 4-5 milias around my eye. they are very stubborn you cant take them like a regular pimple. As i was relocated to a new city so i thought it may be cause of weather change. but 2-3 months went by but they remained as it is..few gone few came making it equal. out of fear i went to meet Dermatologist. he recommended me what you have mentioned in your article. the problem was i was not cleaning my skin in proper way. and in short i was taking it for granted. as my skin is dry and also due to my job profile i had to travel alot. hence heavy moisturizing cream layered with HIGH SPF resulted in that. i just started following a correct skin care routine recommended by Dermatologist and stopped using and layering heavy products in couple of months it was gone..
its not that now i dont do layering or dont use heavy moisturiser or high SPF. just i am not doing it regularly and also i take care of skin. hence the problem solved.
Hey peeps, i m totally glad that i can open up with my HS with pimples or what they call it under my arm with you because i think that you can totally understand what i say and how i feel. I m diagnosed with stage 2 HS for 4 years till now and i had a 1 year total remission in between, it came worse this time cause it used to appear in only one arm now came in both, i used numerous kinds of antibiotics for months and months with no remission , i also did laser treatment under my arm but it always came back. My doctor suggested Humera 3 weeks ago and i really did start it and have been since on these injections, my right arm has 90% been treated and my left is 50% cause it was worse in first place. I think it is a really good option for recurrent cases. YOU MUST GIVE IT A SHOT! Now i would desperately like to ask you 2 questions, first for people who are in complete remission now, for how long will i take it as i live in Egypt and this drug is so expensive in here, i scare i can't afford it for too long; second have you had any common SEs on you like these serious SEs i read about or is it safe on long term. I really hope you read this and answer me and thank you so much.
Dear Dr. Ken, your website has been a source of great knowledge and comfort for me over the past year – god bless you.
I have been struggling for the past five years and diagnosis has moved from L4-L5 issues; SIJoint related; Piriformis Syndrome (based on who I saw!) etc. etc.
However, the needle of suspicion is now around Pudendal Nerve entrapment (all issues started after a traditional cut and chop hemerroidectomy and symptoms that trigger post sitting in the shape of left sitbone and left SIjoint area pain; pain triggering immediately after wearing pants tight around the groin region; leg weakness etc.
May I request your inputs on what sort of exercises (a) one should do to see if the pudendal nerve relaxes and (b) what sort of exercises not to do if the suspicion is pudendal never related, and (c) other inputs you feel worthy of consideration for me and fellow sufferers.
I am amazed by how late in the game someone mentioned pudendal nerve cause once I read about it, all my symptoms suddenly started making sense! Your guidance will benefit many and I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes to you always!
