    Burns

    Burns and scalds are damage to the skin caused by heat, which can be very painful and cause blisters and charred, black or red skin. Read more →

    I am the same way no ones helping me or anything. I'm 14 and not gone to any doctor because my mom really dosen't care. so i'm in this alone. I have gotten really stressed and depressed. I just want someone to tell me what is going on here. Sorry i could not provide an answer for you. My scald is also itchy and tingly. I'm really freakin out. So if anyone has an answer, can you write it on this thing?

    I'm 27 and I have suffered on and off with alopecia for 10 years, as many of you there is no reasons for my alopecia. I have tried loads of different treatments cream from the DR, solution painted on my scald at the hospital, Indian head massages, acupuncture nothing has ever helped but I have been taking liquid iron called Floradix from Holland & Barrett and after a few weeks has made me feel more positive and energetic. I have been on the pill for some time and have decided to come off it to see if this improves any of my symptoms, I currently have about 70% hair loss and it's the worst it has ever been. This is a horrible and frustrating illness and i feel for you younger girls and boys that are struggling at school. I try to remember that I am still healthy and have lots of people around me that love and support me.

    Thank you for sharing your story, I know what you are going though as I am in a similar situation (Alopecia Totallis at 19) having tried many of the above treatments that you have suggested other than the Floradix which I will have to give a go. I have however been on a high iron diet for the last 6 months where in the first few weeks I had some regrowth but no more since. I am just trying to find any kind of cure that I can! Thnaks James.

    When I was 7 yrs old my brother decided to scald me with boiling water out of a kettle which left a nasty scar all across my left breast, What is supposed to be the nipple is constantly hard and points in because of the way the scar formed on it, It only started to bother me when i was 19 and had my first baby when i discovered i couldn't breast feed from it :( i once asked my GP if i could maybe have surgery to correct this but all he said could be done was tattoo where the nipple is supposed to be...not only that but they're asymmetrical for the same reason, the point of my story ladies is that im 25 now, have two wonderful children with a man that doesn't give my pointy scarred uneven boob a second thought and that most men love boobs any shape or size so we should too. Or atleast try like me before taking drastic measures :)
