Symptoms of Panic Attacks

For organizational reasons, this article will be divided into three sections; physical symptoms of panic attacks, mental symptoms of panic attacks, and perceptual symptoms of panic attacks. This is a very complete list and after a thorough read-through you should be able to gain a much deeper understanding as to whether or not you or someone close to you is suffering from panic attacks. If undiagnosed and untreated, panic attacks could wreak untold havoc upon the sufferer's life. The sooner you can recognize the symptoms of panic attacks the sooner you can have them treated. The phrases "panic attacks" and "anxiety attacks" will be used interchangeably throughout this article.

Physical Symptoms of Panic Attacks:

There are several recognizable physical symptoms of anxiety attacks. The most common is increased heart rate and a feeling of tightness in the chest and / or stomach. The tightness in the chest could lead to hyperventilation, heart palpitations, dizziness, light-headedness, headaches or a feeling of claustrophobia. The tightness in the stomach could lead to stomach pains or nausea. In extreme cases, other physical symptoms of anxiety attacks could be characterized by temporary blindness and burning or choking sensations.

Mental Symptoms of Panic Attacks:

Those experiencing panic attacks often have equally severe mental symptoms. These are often characterized by irrational, racing thoughts. These could include the feeling as though nothing is real, the feeling as though bad things are about to happen, loud internal dialog or the feeling as though they are losing their sanity.

Perceptual Symptoms of Panic Attacks:

Your perception of yourself and the outside world are drastically altered when experiencing an anxiety attack. You may experience heightened senses, tunnel vision, the perceived speeding up or slowing down of time, or the feeling of dissociation where one feels as though they are not connected to their own body.

If you have experienced any of these feelings you may be suffering from anxiety attacks. Be advised, that several common symptoms of panic attacks have been listed and you do not need to experience all of them to still be considered a panic attack sufferer. Also you may suffer from other symptoms that are not listed here but are equally valid symptoms of panic attacks.

Type 2 Diabetes – A Diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes May Lead to Heart Disease Later in Life

According to a study reported on in October of 2017 in JAMA Internal Medicine, women suffering Gestational diabetes, a temporary form of Type 2 diabetes that occurs during pregnancy, may be at long-term risk for developing heart disease.

Scientists at Harvard Medical School and several other research institutions in Boston and Maryland, United States, compared 89,479 women with a history of at least one pregnancy, a total of 1,161 heart attacks and strokes were documented in the individual participant’s medical records…

  • after adjustment for other factors, women with a history of diabetes during their pregnancy or pregnancies were 29 percent more likely to suffer heart and blood vessel disease than the women who had a healthy pregnancy.
  • the women who progressed from Gestational diabetes to Type 2 diabetes later in life, had four times greater risk of heart and blood disease than women who had not experienced Gestational diabetes or Type 2 diabetes.

From these results, researchers concluded a diagnosis of diabetes during pregnancy was linked with a long-term risk of heart and blood vessel disease, but the relationship could have been due to weight gain and following an unhealthy lifestyle.

In September of 2017, the International Journal of Women’s Health published a paper on current knowledge of heart disease in women. Heart specialists at the University of Wisconsin and various other universities in the United States, said heart and blood vessel disease are the leading causes of death in women, accounting for 1 in 4 women’s deaths. Their article listed Gestational diabetes as a risk factor, as well as…

  • other types of diabetes,
  • smoking,
  • high blood pressure,
  • abnormal blood fats,
  • older age,
  • obesity,
  • peripheral vascular disease,
  • a sedentary lifestyle,
  • a family history of heart and blood vessel disease,
  • the Metabolic syndrome,
  • mental stress,
  • autoimmune diseases (where the body’s immune system attacks body tissues),
  • preeclampsia (high blood pressure in pregnancy),
  • eclampsia (convulsions in pregnancy), and
  • menopause.

Another article in September of 2017, appearing in the Review of Recent Clinical Trials, recommends women who have had Gestational diabetes have their blood sugar levels checked regularly. Diabetes specialists at the University of Maryland in the United States explain heart and blood vessel disease is a danger because of inflammation after having Gestational diabetes.

In August of 2017, specialists at the University of Georgia in the United States published an article in the journal Clinical Cardiology, with much the same recommendations. The Georgians urge physicians to consider…

  • Gestational diabetes,
  • autoimmune disease, and
  • preeclampsia

when protecting female patients from heart and blood vessel disease.

Spiritual Growth is a Personal Quest

The more spirituality information you are exposed to the more you understand that your spiritual growth is a quest for understanding your relationship to life, love, God and the true nature of how the universe works.

There is this wonderful thing you need to know about your eternal life quest and it is one of the reasons that I love the concept of spirituality so much. Spirituality tells us that each person must follow their own particular path in their quest for spiritual understanding and knowledge about the true nature of how things work. It is an individual journey and you get to take the journey in any manner that suits you best. There is no “one right way” that fits everybody. There is only “the way that works for you.”

The words and concepts in this article are here to help you see another way of looking at life (or God, or love) so that you might incorporate these understandings into your own life creation. My request is that you view this material with an open mind and an open heart. Some of the concepts you will explore here may be new to you, and some of them may be ideas that you have heard before and revealed to you through my own particular filter. None of what you will be reading here is new news. We are not re-inventing the wheel. The wheel is already known to us, but the wheel is cyclical and as it turns and turns we get to view it from all different perspectives.

You are reading this article because you are on a quest to improve your life. I am on a quest to improve my life. And by improvement, I don’t mean that my life, just like yours, isn’t already perfect. Mine is, just as yours is. It is just that there are ways to live life and go through the life process that serve us, and there are ways to go through the life process that don’t serve us, given what it is that we say we are trying to accomplish and who we are being.

If you desire to live your life effortlessly and in abundance, then there are ways of interpreting the process of life that serve you better than other ways of interpreting the process of life. All of life is a choice, but in order to make the preferred choices you must have an understanding of all the choices available to you. This article is designed to allow you to see some different perspectives on the life process and thereby allow you make choices that serve you.

Whether you make those choices is entirely up to you. That is what I love about this concept called spirituality. It is entirely up to you to interpret what is best for you, given who you define yourself to be. Once you have defined yourself, then you have the opportunity to choose those experiences that reveal your innermost desires and aspirations to the world. If you so choose.

As you wake up to who you really are, you become inspired (in spirit) to create the life of your innermost and deeply held intentions and desires into your physical reality.

As you wake up to who you really are, you begin to understand the true nature of how things work.

As you wake up to who you really are, you begin manifesting into your life those people, events and experiences in your life that fulfill your innermost desires and aspirations.

As you wake up to who you really are, you align yourself with the universal forces that allow you to live effortlessly.

As you wake up to who you really are, you begin to see the abundance that is your inheritance by the fact that you are here, right now, in this present moment of now.

As you wake up to who you really are, you bring yourself into balance in the mind, body, spirit being that is inherent to your beingness.

As you wake up to who you really are, you begin to understand fully that you are not a human being having a spiritual experience, but rather you are a spiritual being having a human experience.

So that is our quest. We are going to venture deeply into the process of life with the intention of coming to clarity on the true nature of how things work. It is with this deep understanding that we will be able to incorporate the concepts and ideas in our lives that will allow us to be and therefore do the things that serve us as we move toward the vision that we hold of ourselves.

This is not the only way to view life and the life process, it is just another way. Once again, the beauty of life is in the free will to make any choice that you desire that will help define who you are and how you wish to manifest into your life that which you truly desire and intend to experience.

You see, all of life is an experience. That is why we are here. To experience life, to experience God, to experience love. (They are interchangeable) We are here to experience life in all of its different perspectives in order for us to see the core of who we really are, which is Love, from all of its different perspectives.

With an open heart and an open mind, let us begin our journey. By taking an in-depth view of Life As A Process we will gain some perspective on the true nature of how things work. Once you understand how the universe really works you can incorporate that understanding into your life and let the love and abundance of life flow to you effortlessly.

Let the journey begin.

Ewing's Sarcoma, A Common Form of Bone Cancer

Ewing's Sarcoma is one of three different kinds' cases of bone cancer. It is usually diagnosed in a younger generation with the victims usually between the ages of ten to twenty years old and the most commonly diagnosed are males. There have been cases of children getting Ewing's Sarcoma from as young as three or four years of age. It rarely is diagnosed or contracted past the age of thirty years old. It is generally diagnosed in Caucasians and not as often in African-Americans or Asians; in fact it is very rare. It is a highly malignant primary tumor in the bone and is generally found in the Upper legs, hip and pelvis of a patient, although it can occur anywhere in the body. This type of cancer is found inside of the soft tissue in the bone.

Pain radiating from the limbs can be one of the first indicators on bone cancer, especially Ewing's Sarcoma. This pain begins small and dull and escalates quickly to a very intense feeling. Elevated LDH levels as well as weight loss and anemia also accompanies the symptoms of Ewing's Sarcoma. Tender swelling that is localized and has been apparent for several weeks or months is an indicator that you should visit your doctor for further testing. A cat scan or MRI will be able to diagnose your cancer and will be able to further tell whether or not it has spread to other parts of your body, which will decide the proper course of treatment. Typically, a surgery is performed to remove the cancerous tumor. If the tumor is extremely large, amputation may be a necessity in order to keep the cancer from spreading elsewhere. The surgery is then followed by an extensive round or rounds of radiation or chemotherapy.

Ewing's Sarcoma is the most lethal and the second most common cancerous or malignant tumor found in a young cancer patient. There is a survival rate of 5 years that is 70% -80% if the bone cancer is found early enough and has not metastasized, or spread and has been treated with chemotherapy. If the cancer has metastasized, the long term survival rate plummets to around 10% -20%.

What Kind of Tree are You – How to Kick the Worry and Fear Habit Cold Turkey

Imagine walking through a beautiful apple orchard looking at apple trees that are filled with ripe juicy red apples. You grab your bucket to start picking apples and as you reach toward the branch you see, an orange?

What is an orange doing on an apple tree?

Either something is terribly wrong or you are in a bad dream. Possibly the tree did not have proper nourishment while developing. It produced an overflow of what it was fed.

Jesus lived life from the overflow of his heart.

He spoke and demonstrated the fruit of compassion, love, and power. Jesus produced this fruit by getting proper nourishment from his Source. The nourishment from God not only allowed him to live what he taught, the abundance caused an overflow to help others.

Take a moment and think about this question. What kind of fruit are you bearing from the tree of your life? Would you be the tree with all the ripe juicy apples or the apple tree that grows oranges?

I do not know about you, but I see myself as that apple tree with the oranges. Because of what I have allowed into my life through the years, I produced fruit that was not in line with who God created me to be. My source of nourishment was hooked up to fear and approval from other people.

Can you relate? What type of fruit are you carrying that is keeping you from enjoying the life that Jesus promised? Take a moment and look into your heart. What does the overflow of your heart look like? Does the fruit of compassion and joy overflow from your tree? Or do you see an overflow of worries, sickness, fear, etc.

How can you bear fruit like the Jesus? What secret did he have that you can use right now?

He knew his Source and allowed nothing else to provide false nourishment.

Today find areas in your life that are providing the false illusion of nourishment. Start with one action and ask God for strength. Before you know it, your life will transform before your eyes and your overflow will match your true abundant source.

Bronchitis Vs Pneumonia

What is the difference between bronchitis and pneumonia?


It is an inflammation of the bronchi, which are the large air way passes that lead from the mouth to the lungs.
If it is caused by a virus, it is self limited and needs no treatment at all.

It is divided into two types sometimes acute and chronic. In acute it lasts for four to ten days accompanied by flu or cold while when chronic, it lasts for three months and above and the symptoms are recurrent and can be a threat to life. It is cached by dirty air and heavy fumes.


It is an infection in the lung tissue itself. The vast majority of patients who have bronchitis have it because they are exposed to virus, most often the common cold.

It is caused by virus as well as bacteria and requires treatment with antibiotics.

It can also be caused by micro organizations.

It is divided into four types:

– Walking one which is mild and causes a dry cough.
– Aspiration one where bacteria is present and it is harmless.
– Opportunistic one it is harmless as long as immune system is healthy.
– Regional and occupational caused by exposure to chemicals.

Incubation period is four to six days in influence it takes 18 to72 hours.
Viral one lasts long to cure.

Bacterial is cured between one to two weeks.

A good balanced diet will make sure that your immune system is at its peak and fighting off infections for your body will be easy. You can also take food supplements when necessary just to fill in the gaps that your diet might have left.

Stop Dieting And Start Pounding Your Bones

Two recent studies by diet and health researchers confirm that dieting alone is not the best or the healthiest way to go about weight loss.

Dennis T. Villareal, MD, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis. Louis, and colleagues studied the effects of weight loss on bone loss in 48 adults with an average age of 57. Nineteen was assigned to follow a calorie-restricted diet, 19 to eat the same number of calories and begin an exercise, and 10 to receive information on healthy lifestyles only when requested.

All participants were weighed at the beginning of the study and again after one, three, six, nine and 12 months. Bone mineral density was measured every three months.

After one year, those in the calorie restriction group lost an average of 18.1 pounds, those in the exercise intervention group lost 14.8 pounds and those in the healthy lifestyle group maintained their weight. Individuals in the calorie-restriction group also lost an average of 2.2 percent of their bone density in the lower spine, 2.2 percent at the hip and 2.1 percent at the top end of the femur – all high-risk fracture sites.

There were no significant changes in bone mineral density in the exercise or healthy lifestyle groups.

Muscles pulling on bones during exercise is thought to produce strains in the skeleton that stimulate new bone production. "Our results are consistent with an osteoprotective effect of exercise-induced mechanical strain on the skeleton and consequent increase in bone turnover," the authors continue.

In another study, a Washington University team of scientists studied healthy 50 to 60-year olds body mass index was between 23 and 30, placing them at the high end of normal weight or overweight. Of the 34 study participants, 18 dieted and 16 exercised to lose weight.

After one year the participants lost an average of between 9 and 10 percent of their total body weight.

Those who died lost muscle mass while those who exercised did not. This is because the exercisers routiniously challenged their muscles, which preceded muscle tissue from degrading. A subgroup that did 30 minutes per day of extra exercise lost an average of 18 percent of their total body weight with no loss of muscle tissue.

The lesson is clear. If you diet alone to lose weight you are only creating a lighter bag of skin. For healthy weight loss you must work your muscles and pound your bones.

Here is a simple formula that you can use to lose two pounds of body fat per week. One pound of fat = 3,500 calories. If you do nothing to change your eating habits, and exercise to burn 7,000 calories per week, you will lose two pounds of body fat per week and keep or build your bone density and muscle at the same time. A win-win.

Putting your feet on the ground at about 75 counts per minute burns .078 Calories / Minute / Pound of Body Weight, or more easily remembered, 7.8 calories per minute, or 468 calories per hour, per 100 pounds of body weight.

A 200 pound person would require about 7 1/2 hours per week of exercise that pounded their feet on the ground 75 times per minute. Use this formula to convert for your situation:

(Your Body Weight / 100) * 468 * (Steps Per Minute / 75) = Calories Per Hour. Divide 7,000 by the Calories Per Hour figure and that is how many hours of exercise per week you must do to lose 2 pounds of body fat. If you can not find a way to lose 2 pounds of body fat per week then shoot to eliminate 1 pound of body fat per week. That is still 52 pounds of healthy weight loss per year.

Hernia Treatment Without Surgery Is Becoming Widespread

Generally, hernia requires surgery. But, these days, hernia treatment without surgery is becoming widespread. Yoga hernia exercises are useful for hernia treatment without surgery because it is found that over 30% hernia surgery patients end up with pain and discomfort afterwards. Inserting a foreign net can cause complications later in your 30 to 40 years of post-operation life. Instead of immediate surgery, you can try out gentle yogic stretching in static and dynamic form. This is good for gradually strengthening weak abdominal muscles as it supplies abundant amount of oxygenated blood that nourishes, activates, tones and strengthens. This in turn improves muscle tensile strength which prevent displacement of internal organs. Exercising as a solution for hernia will also safeguard that the hernia does not recur in adjacent area.

You can ask a physical therapist for guidance on exercises that fit your unique condition as patient education & training are key factors in the overall process of physiotherapy treatment. Hernia treatment without surgery will need 1 to 3 months of committed effort and patience to heal.


Piles are usually inflamed and swollen collections of tissue in the anal area. They can be of any sizes and may be internal or external. Piles are usually caused by increased pressure in the lower rectum. The blood vessels around the anus and in the rectum generally stretch under pressure and may swell, thus forming piles. The symptoms of piles are:

• Hard stool and constipation,

• Diarrhea and frequent bowel movements.

Doctors usually diagnose piles after carrying out some physical examinations like digital rectal examination or colonoscopy.

In most cases, piles dissolve on their own without the need for any treatment. But, some piles become severe. Read on to discover some piles treatment that will help significantly to reduce the discomfort and itching.

1. Diet – Diet change is a must to keep the stools regular and soft. This means you need to eat more fiber, such as fruit and vegetables or bran-based breakfast cereals. You should increase water consumption.

2. Body weight – Exercising and losing weight help in reducing the severity of piles.

3. Medicines – Over-the-counter medicines like painkillers, ointments, creams, and pads help to soothe redness and swelling around the anus. Corticosteroids medicines can reduce inflammation and pain. Laxatives are prescribed if a person with piles suffers from constipation.

4. Surgery – An elastic band is placed around the base of the pile, cutting off its blood supply. In sclerotherapy, medicine is injected to make the hemorrhoid shrink. Infrared coagulation is a device that is used to burn the hemorrhoid tissue. The excess tissue that is causing the bleeding can be surgically removed. Hemorrhoid stapling is done to block the blood flow to the hemorrhoid tissue. Laser surgery is the latest technique for treating piles.

So, multispecialty hospitals have well known doctors for piles treatment where you can get yourself completely cured.

Cold Sore Myths – Debugging the Myths Surround Cold Sores

With all the information on the internet about cold sores there are bound to be some cold sore myths floating around it. The worst thing is just like Chinese whispers as the change happens it is passed onto person to person and they will believe because it was passed on from someone else. This means that there will be a lot of bad information around meaning that you not only waste your time but also your money if you’ve used any on cold sore myths.

So here are a few myths which are completely bogus and should be avoided at all costs.

You Can’t Spread Cold Sores To Others

This is the most important to understand, you can spread cold sores to others, even if they don’t appear right away you have given them the virus which can stay dormant for an elongated period of time.

All the virus needs is for their immune system to take a shock due to a cold or stress and then it takes that opportunity to attack so you need to avoid touching the area and others (you need to avoid touching the area full stop as this can be very bad for the area).

It Is Only Spreadable To Your Mouth

Unfortunately this isn’t true, the virus can be spread to other parts of your body not just the lips and the mouth.

If you move the virus from your mouth to other areas (via touching) you are enabling it to spread. For example rubbing your eyes could cause the virus to infect this area, other areas that can be affected are the cheeks, nose and also the genital area.

For these reason you NEED to avoid touching your cold sore no matter how irritating it is for you.

They Are Only Present When You Have A Cold

Yes it is in the name and do appear when you have a cold but the reason for this is that your immune system is low. This is when they appear not only when you’re ill.

There are other factors such as stress, fatigue, illness, fever and trauma which are all times when your immune system can be lowered and then the virus can attack.

Obviously you can’t control being ill or not but you can take zinc lozenges which you can use to help boost your immune system when you’re ill so that your body has a chance to fight back and that is not a cold sore myth.

Testing for Diabetes

If you have the symptoms of diabetes, or a family history of diabetes, you definitely need to see your doctor for testing. Untreated diabetes is life-threatening, and can cause serious other life-threatening health problems as well. You should make an appointment with your doctor for diabetes testing as soon as possible.

Doctors have a variety of tests that they can perform to either diagnose or rule out diabetes. A blood glucose test is usually the first test performed. The first test will be nothing more than drawing a couple of vials of blood to test the sugar levels. If the sugar levels are not normal, your doctor will usually have you return to the office for more extensive blood glucose tests.

The doctor will most likely ask you not to eat or drink anything approximately eight hours before the test. If that test comes back abnormally, he may again request further testing, with the next test being the oral glucose tolerance test. Again, your doctor will ask you not to eat or drink anything after midnight the night before the test. Blood will be immediately drawn when you arrive at the office or lab.

After the first blood draw, you will be given a very sweet drink, which contains about 75 grams of sugar. It basically tastes like uncarbonated Coca-Cola. You will wait at the lab or office for two hours after drinking this substance, and your blood will be drawn and tested again. You may be asked to drink more, and wait another two hours for yet another blood draw as well.

Another type of test, if for some reason the results of other testing have been inconclusive, is the Glycosylated Hemoglobin test, or A1c. This test measures your blood sugar levels over a 120-day period, which is the lifespan of a red blood cell. In most cases, the A1c test is not necessary, as diabetes can be diagnosed or ruled out easily with the other tests.

Spinal Development for Kids – Things to Look Out For

Parents are usually very concerned about the development of their child's brain. They want to ensure that the kid is going to be intelligent and academically strong and able to make bundles of money. However, not many pay attention to the most important part of the human body, rarely the spell.

As adults, a large number of us are falling prey to spinal problems. Right from constant back aches to sciatica to even prolapsed discs, all of it has become very common. The root of all these problems lies in a weak back. A back that should have been strengthened in childhood and given the attention it deserved.

Causes of Spinal problems in children

Back aches and spinal issues are usually associated with adult life. Most of us believe that sitting on the work desk for hours on end is the only reason why we develop back problems. Since kids do not need to do so, their backs are safe. Nothing could be further from the truth. Children's spines are much more prone to spinal problems as opposed to adults. A few common causes of spinal problems in children are discussed below –

  • Birth – The process of being expeled from the uterus is traumatic for the child. In fact, the spine and the skull go through maximum trauma during this time. This process can lead to spinal injuries or trauma that may either show up immediately or re-surface during later years of the child's life.
  • Falls – There is not a child in the world who has not had a fall of some kind or the other. These falls tend to affect the spine in varying degrees of intensity. Again here the symptoms of the injury may or may not show up immediately and may not be visible especially to the medically untrained eye.
  • Congenital problems – Another cause for spinal problems in kids is congenital issues. The fetus may have gone through a problem during its development stages, which effected the development of the spine adversely. More often than not these congenital problems can be spotted in an ultrasound before birth or even when the child is born.
  • Genetic issues – Genes play a huge role in our physical development. There are a series of spinal problems that may passed on to a child due to his / her gene pool. Again here there is no saying when this problem will occur and its symptoms show up.

Types of spinal problems in children

When it comes to the types of spinal issues that afflict children, the list is rather extensive. While most of our adulthood issues also find their root in childhood causes, there are some spinal ailments which show up in the early years itself. Some of these are discussed in detail below –

  • Spina Bifida – Here the child may not suffer any health problem, though there have been times where ADHD, improper hand eye co-ordination, problem with bowel or even bladder control has been associated with this disease. There are two main types of spina bifida namely occulta and manifesta. The former is a milder disease as opposed to the latter. While there is no cure for this medical condition, the treatment can ensure a normal and healthy and full life span to the child.
  • Spinal muscular atrophy – This degenerative disorder attacks the spinal and results in muscle failure. There are four types of muscular atrophy and in all four cases only treatment is possible, since there is no cure as yet. It is a degenerative disorder and so a full life span is rarely an option. The symptoms of this disease come in huge range. Afflicted children tend to have lower muscular control, so bowel and urinal control gets difficult. Legs could be weak, swallowing could be a problem and the child may keep the head tilted to one side.
  • Scoliosis – Here there is an abnormal curvature to the spine. The spiral curves from side to side and can be caused by either congenital condition, or be neuromuscular. More often than not the disease is said to be idiopathic since the cause is unknown. The treatment of the problem ranges from exercises, bracing to even surgery depending upon the time of sunset and also the intensity of the disease. Constantly monitoring the curvature plays a huge role in treatment of scoliosis, since the treatment depends on the extent of the curvature. Since repetitive x rays are not considered too good for the human body, a scoliometer is used by doctors to measure the curvature of the patient.
  • Traumatic spinal diseases – Of course there are the traumatic spinal diseases that afflict children too. Here the problem occurs due to a fall or any other similar trauma borne by the child. The path of treatment will depend on the type of trauma and its success will also be guided by the extent of injury.

Spinal Care for kids

As parents we need to pay attention to the spinal health of the child starting right from the conception stage. Nutrition and attention both play a huge role in the spinal development of the child. However, constant monitoring is also required in order to ensure that the spinal health is not deteriorating.

In case the child shows signs of spinal complications, do not hesitate to get a diagnosis as soon as possible. In cases where a diagnosis has been reached the proper care and medical advice should be followed fully.

In short, caring for the spine is not an option, it is mandatory. When looking to have healthy and fit children, great attention needs to be paid to the development of the spell. Keep in mind that spinal complications can take on a serious turn and sometimes ruin the child's life completely. So, keep the above information in mind and here's hoping for great health and happiness for your child.

How to Stop Scabies

When scabies mites burrow underneath the skin, it causes itching and results in a lot of aggravation for those with this skin problem. Symptoms of this skin infection include dry and itchy skin as well as red skin and rashes. It is a highly contagious disease and can be transferred to others by making physical contact through touch or sharing the belongings of the infected person. However, some people can share the same bed with someone and never catch it. It is not just a std disease as it can be communicated via holding hands or arm wrestling. In fact, in facilities for the elderly many times staff members will hold someone's hand and walk them to the dining room due to their walking difficulties. This is one way that it spreads around a nursing home.

A pesticide lotion is prescribed by doctors to help those that are infected. Elimite is a common one and is applied from the neck down and left on till the morning when it's turned off. When this is applied, one must be sure to get it under the nails, on the soles of the feet and in on the hands once again before going to bed.

In certain countries, prescription pesticides are not used. Natural methods are applied instead. There are three natural oils that can be used as a means of how to get rid of scabies. These are neem oil, peppermint oil, and tea tree oil. These natural oils are strong oils, so you have to test them on an area of ​​your skin before applying it on your body body to avoid allergic skin reactions. They should also be diluted with vegetable oil. Neem oil is used as a contraceptive so this can help the egg production cease. These oils are applied in the same manner as citric juices and extracts except they are not rinsed off. Instead they are applied in the manner of a lotion.

To prevent itching further, you could try soaking yourself in cool bath water. Do not use abrasive soaps or any dermabrasion soaps, since they may aggravate the skin surface. Because the itching can be severe, look into using antihistamines to help with the inflated skin. Moisturize the skin well to help the current lesions heal. Be sure to also clean the home thoroughly and wash the clothing and bed sheets in very hot water to avoid reinfection.
