I've been working on a list of similarly priced products that are comparable to TO in terms of actives, so if anyone is looking for alternatives: (cheaper $/oz in bold, US-centric, unfinished list)

monistat chafing relief powder gel is amazing and it definitely won't get in your lady parts unless you actually put it there

u/PhenominableSnowman 路 60 pointsr/dataisbeautiful

Costco is great, but check Amazon. We're in a similar position. 365 pills on Amazon is $15.99. Obviously Costco is awesome for other things but you might be able to save even more on the Zyrtec. Here is the one we buy for reference: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G9E1GYA/

D'Mannose helps. My Girlfriend had issues of getting UTI's quite frequently, D'Mannose regularly and just more water helped a lot. She can normally "kill" them prior to becoming a full blown UTI and need to get antibiotics.

NICE WORK!!!!
Tightening up your game now. If you鈥檙e going to drink at work, be smart. Every.single. time.

Assume your breath is always AWFUL.
Gum all the time is suspicious! I feel strongly about that especially now because 鈥渢hey are on to you鈥 I would even stay away from it.

Halls are great for boozie breath, peanut butter, red hot candies, and those listerine strips.
I would even get those little potent peppermint capsules:

Thought of another one- I buy 20% azelaic acid from Amazon for $13. No Rx, I've been using my current tube for over 6 weeks three times a week and still going.

I know, I know, it's supposed to be Rx at that strength. I don't know how they get away with it, but it's the real deal, and my no longer red face can attest to that.

If you don't like caps, try oblates. It's an edible film you can swallow, people use it for stuff like kratom so they don't have to deal with the taste. Way better than dealing with caps.

u/gigantic_trex 路 24 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Product name: Melazepam

Azelaic acid %: 20%

Price (range): ~$12 for 1.7oz

Country of purchase: USA, Amazon

Skin info: Normal, Fitzpatrick 2, very mildly PD/eczema/rosacea-prone

Ingredient list: Deionized water鈥 Azelaic Acid鈥 Cetearyl Alcohol鈥 Ceteareth-20鈥 Mineral Oil鈥 Propylene Gycol鈥 Petrolatum鈥 C12-C15 Alkyl Benzoate鈥 Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower Seed oil)鈥 Polyacrylamide鈥 C13-C14 Isoparaffin鈥 Laureth-7鈥 Glyceryl Stearate鈥 PEG-100 Stearate鈥 Isopropyl Alcohol鈥 L-carnitine鈥 Benzyl Alcohol鈥 Xanthan Gum鈥 Potassium Sorbate鈥 Potassium Hydroxide.

Special info: N/A

Experience & opinion: I've been using Melazepam for 9+ months and I love the stuff. It's my only active, so I feel comfortable attributing the vast majority of my progress to it specifically.

It's a suspension, so be prepared for a gritty texture. I see a lot if complaints about this but I personally have no issues with spreadability or skin-feel. Comes in a tube and has somewhat of an alcohol scent.

I use it once every two nights over moisturizer as my last step. I personally haven't experienced any dryness or irritation. I do get a slight itchy/tingling feeling if I don't let my moisturizer sink in fully first, but I think that's pretty normal for azelaic acid.

My skin tone has evened out a lot, redness on/around my chin has decreased, hormonal acne has been eliminated, and my skin is a lot smoother. I have no intention to stop using it any time soon, or to change up the frequency or method of application.

Yes, practice. It's trainable but also needs to be maintained if you don't have the ability to spin naturally. My motion sickness used to be really bad, but my coach told me I was unworkable if I couldn't spin so I actively work on it. I would practice spinning for maybe only two minutes every day and literally go vomit in the bathroom every time.

I ate these before I practiced spinning every session which eased the nausea slightly.

Even now I'm not great at fast spinning and I get nauseous if I don't focus on a single point (usually I look at my hand), but I can get through spinning sequences without throwing up and can spend a full hour working on just my spinning.

If you're nauseous after stepping off the apparatus it also was helpful for me to jump a couple times, turn the opposite direction of the spin, and stare directly at my hand in front of my face for a bit.

u/gooberlx 路 18 pointsr/dogs

FWIW, these are the kinds of vomit bags you'll find in a hospital. You twist and clip when done to close it up. Cupping your hand around/under the top rim of these things is, IME, far superior to holding the edges of a ziploc open.

u/aalitheaa 路 14 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Rosehip oil

Vanicream Lite instead of NMF It's more moisturizing, gentler, and cheaper.

Azaleic Acid

I am still using up my glycolic toner but will probably replace it with Pixi glow tonic.

I also tried Salicylic acid, HA, and Niacinamide from TO, but they just irritated me or broke me out, and I haven't tried replacing them yet. If I did, most of it is pretty easy to find a dupe for on Amazon. There is a master post of dupes here, for anyone interested.

u/melkphilly 路 13 pointsr/Rosacea

I also have this problem with my insurance. I鈥檝e had good work-around luck with DIY azelaic acid (https://www.amazon.com/Ecological-Formulas-Melazepam-Cream/dp/B001WUEJ4U), sulfur masks (https://www.amazon.com/SULFUR-OINTMENT-POWERFUL-ACNE-MDICATION/dp/B003Y58F14/ref=sr_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1522201544&sr=8-3&keywords=Sulfur+ointment), and the vet version of soolantra (https://www.amazon.com/Duramectin-Ivermectin-Paste-1-87-Horses/dp/B003T4DMPO/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1522202843&sr=8-2&keywords=ivermectin+for+horses ). This version is sticky like Vaseline. But it鈥檚 cheap so you won鈥檛 lose much if you don鈥檛 like it. After I determined it worked for me I switched to this one which isn鈥檛 so sticky (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004FVUH6C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).

I use a very gentle cleanser (I like albolene and vanicream) and moisturizer, plus sunscreen during the day.

Just a warning if you try the ivermectin - my skin got a lot worse than I have ever seen it around days 4-10. But then it improved tremendously. I think this is why dermatologists use doxycycline with it in the beginning to reduce the inflammatory reaction to the mite die-off. But stick with it and it鈥檚 so so worth it.

Finally, here is my routine:

PM:
Cleanse (albolene)
Sulfur mask (10 Min every other night)-then rinse with lukewarm water
Azelaic acid (3 times a week)
Moisturize
Ivermectin (every night right at bedtime)
Vaseline (if I鈥檓 really dry)

AM
Cleanse (vanicream)
Moisturize
Sunscreen

u/Iledahorsetowater 路 12 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I鈥檝e heard caffeine is great for underneye puffiness and bags. Also people don鈥檛 realize but it is caused by fluids and if you massage, you tube facial lymphatic massage, you can literally drain that fluid and massage it down into the rest of your circulatory system.

You will see better results with massage from removing that built up fluid (allergies, poor sleeping positions, etc.) than creams... though creams help. Caffeine creams help with puffiness but can be drying, thus you鈥檇 need a good moisturizing undereye cream.

Some recs:

  • am & pm facial lymphatic massage 5-15 minutes. Seriously you will see your bags and dark circles instantly decrease. That fluid has to go somewhere... I learned these in school and I give them to my bf when he looks tired or during allergy season. Always massage DOWNWARD TOWARD HEART & CHEST. Put some oil on your face (non-comegenic) for some slip.
  • the ordinary caffeine solution cheap
  • drunk elephant frambroos to help with resurfacing and making pores smaller/smoother skin. This product is the shit. Ask Sephora for samples bc it鈥檚 $90 and you prob are like f$&k no until you wake up the next morning. Then you will find a way to save that 90 I tell ya.
  • the ordinary Argenine liquid Botox in a bottle. Good for those forehead wrinkles/cheap/extremely effective and hard to get your paws on. A sleeper product nobody talks about.
  • Cera ve pm a good all around moisturizer with a load of niacinamide which just gives your skin some oomph. A lightweight moisturizer. Get it at Walmart and print yourself a $2 off coupon at cera ve website. It will be like $6
  • find yourself a good mineral spf. no coconut derivatives
  • melazepam one of the best things you can do for your skin. Scientifically proven to be as effective as Retin a when used in conjunction with glycolic acid treatments. It lightens sun spots and just brightens your complexion overall. It鈥檚 $12 on amazon and it鈥檚 the highest concentration you can possibly get! It blows the ordinary azelic acid 10% out of the water and any cureology formulation :) (its 20%) it reduces inflammation, redness, and decreases keratinization which prevents the build up of skin.

    That鈥檚 all I鈥檝e got for now, some detox masks and maybe a good basic toner like thayers alcohol free witch hazel (rose, aloe, or cucumber are your only alcohol free options and you find them at target for $10-12).

    I wish I could give you a facial and let you see just how big of a difference getting that fluid out of there can make. !!
u/finebetty 路 12 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

u/snowappleskin 路 12 pointsr/breakingmom

I highly recommend purchasing some emesis bags. They saved my life during pregnancy. I kept them in my purse, the car, and every single room in the house (plus one in the shower stall). Perfect for when you're exploding out both ends.

These were really sturdy: Medline Emesis Bags, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00839SNUE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Gdp0BbXZAP47V

The plastic O-ring can be ripped off when you're done heaving so that you can tie off the bag. Good luck, mama!

Other things that might help would be chewing gum or snacking. Also apparently fresh cool air helps as well.

May help with pain.

Also ask an MD for dicyclomine, it's antispasmodic. Make you loopy and you'll sleep.

Get a really good probiotic, that'll help get your intestines get back to digesting.

Most of all, be patient with the pain. It REALLY HURTS, but it will pass. Allow yourself to be sick.

Make-up primer will do a lot to help the "my face is melting off" phenomenon. The best primers are dimethicone based. However, they are expensive.

Conveniently, the much cheaper Monistat anti-chaffing gel is also dimethicone. Buy a tube of it for $8 and spend the rest of your summer looking faaaaaaaabulous.

Alright, this ended up being way longer than I thought. If anyone thinks this is hailcorporate material go fuck yourself. I didn't spend half an hour collecting drug prices to be accused of advertising (on that note if the links are breaking any rules mods pls let me know and I'll remove them).

NyQuil:
650mg paracetamol
30mg dextromethorphan hbr
12.5mg doxylamine succinate

X48 Amazon - $16.62/$0.35 per dose

Dayquil
325mg paracetamol
10mg dextromethorphan hbr
5mg phenylephrine hcl

X48 Amazon - $14.91/$0.31 per dose


Paracetamol: 500mg X600 (Amazon) - $11.91
Dextromethorphan hbr: 15mg X60 (Amazon) - $9.99
Doxylamine succinate: 25mg X192 (Amazon)* - $9.49

Phenylephrine hcl: 10mg X36 ("Blowout Medical") - $2.10
10mg X72 (Rite Aid) - $10.99/$7.69 if you're a "member"

So!

  • 650mg paracetamol is $0.02576 (and 325mg is $0.01288)
  • 30mg dextromethorphan hbr is $0.255**
  • 12.5mg doxylamine succinate is $0.02471
  • 5mg phenylephrine is $0.02917 with the questionable site, or $0.07632 with rite aid.

    You can also find other mixes of the ingredients (eg paracetamol/phenylephrine was one I saw) which may be cheaper than buying the ingredients individually.

    * I wrote this post out of order and got tired of transcribing links on my phone. Sorry. I didn't have to search very hard to find any of these, so you probably can too.
    ** Dextromethorphan is mildly problematic as an ingredient because for some reason you can only get it by itself in Robitussin or similarly expensive medications - so no cheap generics. But if you're willing to take it with something else like guafinisen (an expectorant that causes serious nausea at high doses to prevent abuse of dextromethorphan, but typically no ill, effects when taking therapeutic doses) then you will end up paying much less for that as well. Example:
    400mg guaifenesin, 20mg dextromethorphan hbr X30 Dollar General - $4.50
    And if you're willing to order it in bulk from a foreign chemical supplier, then therapeutic doses become laughably cheap. Alibaba, e.g., has 1kg available for $480 (Xi'an Salus Nutra Bio-Tech Inc.), which puts 30mg at $0.01440. For a less insane example, I also see 1g for $1 (Changzhou Confucius Biotechnology Co., LTD.), which puts 30mg at $0.03000.

    So we can "homebrew" a dayquil dose for
    $0.01288 (325mg paracetamol) +
    $0.01 (10mg dextromethorphan hbr) +
    $0.02917 (5mg phenylephrine hcl)
    :::
    $0.05205.

    And a nyquil dose for
    $0.02576 (650mg paracetamol) +
    $0.03 (30mg dextromethorphan hbr) +
    $0.02471 (12.5mg doxylamine succinate)
    :::
    $0.08047

    and excepting dextromethorphan we have only used generics/different brands of the medicines that are in NyQuil and DayQuil.

    That's a big part of why I think those products are scams. Another slightly more subjective reason is that I think paracetamol and phenylephrine are both useless in most circumstances. I have found that pseudoephedrine is the most effective nasal decongestant by far (though definitely more expensive), and that phenylephrine has little or no effect on symptoms of relevant illnesses.

    I would recommend Chloraseptic and menthol for coughs instead of dextromethorphan as well.

    It still boggles my mind that people buy shit like NyQuil, Excedrin (literally just caffeine and paracetamol, and we already know how cheap paracetamol is), etc. when the active ingredients can often be bought off the very same shelves

This isn't a steroid cream though?

Which ingredient are you warning against? Edit: and the smashbox primer has all of those ingredients plus more.

I think most of us who use capsules use the 00 size, but if you don't have any issues swallowing the 000 I think you'll be fine. Something else to consider might be using oblate discs or pouches. It's an edible super thin film. Lots of people use them for their powdered herbs.

Empties:

  • Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser- I loooooooove this cleanser, not a HG item since it's not like it works miracles on my skin or anything, but it doesn't irritate or break me out or any of the stuff that usually happens to my skin.
  • Josie Maran Argan Oil- I know, I know. It's overpriced. But it's so easy to pick up a little $10 (or $14? I can't remember) bottle when in line at Sephora. I don't think I'll be repurchasing because I might have found a replacement.
  • Coconut oil- My skin (on my body) loves this shit. Baby soft err'day. And my hair drinks it up too. I haven't had a haircut in almost a year and this helps my postpone my haircut until I decide what I want to do with it.
  • Sample of F.A.B Ultra Repair Cream- It's okay. I didn't irritate my skin or cause a breakout, and it moisturized my skin well without feeling greasy, but it feels too plain for the price.

    Purchases

  • Nuetrogena Naturals Purifying Face Wash- I hate this shit. My face hates it. Even my sister (who isn't at all into skincare and will basically use whatever is in the bathroom) hates it. It irritated my skin and seriously dried out my sisters face.

  • St Ives Exfoliating Pads- They're very gentle. Brighten my skin overall, but do almost nothing for my post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. These irritated my sister's skin, which is strange because her skin hardly ever gets irritated, but maybe because it was her first time using any sort of chemical exfoliation (she's 17, I'm not forcing skincare products onto a 6 or 7 year old).

  • Stridex Maximum Strength pads (red box)- I haven't worked up the courage to use these on my face, put they do a pretty good job with my bacne! At first I was like "fuck this shit" because after I used them on my back a few days, I started getting these big cystic pimples. I attributed them to the Stridex and just tossed them with the rest of the skincare rejects under my sink. But because I'm stupid and am not one to learn her lesson the first time, I tried them again. And tada, they worked and didn't cause big red angry bumps. I'm still not sure what caused them the first time.

  • Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel- I wash my face with this when I feel that raw honey won't be enough. I like the way it feels and smells, and it doesn't irritate my skin.

  • More Raw Honey- Probably tied with Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser for my favorite cleanser. I love the way it leaves my skin moisturized and soft.

  • Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask!!!- I'm excited I finally bought something that's talked about on the sub. I just got his two days ago. Spot tested it on my chin, no bad reaction, so I tried it on my forehead and nose yesterday. No big improvement, but I like the way it feels. I also think it brought some of the little bumps on my forehead to a head, so I popped those little suckers this morning. (sorry for the gross imagery, I'm a picker, I can't help it)

  • Last, but not least... Hemp Oil <3 - I got it as a replacement for jojoba oil since it had a zero on the comedogenic scale (I don't know why I still really check it since something could be an absolute zero on the scale and still fuck my face up). I mixed it with some coconut oil when I got it, and oh my sweet god, it was the best body moisturizer ever. The richness of the coconut oil and the lightness of the hemp oil combined perfectly to create heavenly soft skin on my legs. I'm still not sure if I like it on my face ( I like the way it feels but I'm not sure if its clogging my pores). I decided to drink some in my smoothies at the same time I decided to try it on my face, and I broke out in a small rash/whiteheads around my mouth and chin area. This happens whenever I try to take any sort of Omega supplements, and I'm not sure why. :(

    TL;DR: I'm sorry this is so long. I buy and try a lot of things.

Exactly. My wife wears seabands (These) and can play for hours. Without them it only takes ~30min before she starts getting a twisted feeling in her stomach.

D-Mannose is seriously a miracle worker! The powder kind, not the pills though. It's all natural and it really does work! Plus, she can take it every day as a precaution (just a teaspoon mixed with juice or water) and if she feels one coming on just up the dosage until she can get in to the doctor. This has helped both of my grandmas tremendously (apparently when you get older, UTIs become near constant?). Please, buy her some of this and have her try it!

I have the same issue. A doctor told me I had a sinus infection for about four years.

I actually ended up getting a surgery called a Balloon sinuplasty in my right nostril and I had my left one actually cut open. (Don't know the medical name of this.)

​

Overall it helped for a few months but my symptoms came back.

​

I too am a mouthbreather due to not being able to breathe out of my nose. Tis' a struggle.

​

It does help to rinse your sinuses out every night though. I use a Neilmed sinus rinse kit. It helps breathing a bit while I'm sleeping. I'm sure if you did it more during the day it would help too.

Not OP, and never tried Accutane, but I am also an azelaic acid convert. I use this tube and order it straight from Amazon. In fact, my derm told me to just order it online. It's worked wonders. This is a great primer on how to use it.

u/vagabonne 路 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

You need to baby your skin, not nuke it. Your skin is being dehydrated by Dr. Bronners and possibly Thayers Witch Hazel. Physical exfoliation is likely the last thing you need right now.

First step, PLEASE stop using Dr. Bronner鈥檚 on your face!!! That should be your first move. Its pH of 8.9 is far too high for your skin (4-5.5), which damages your acid mantle and leaves your skin vulnerable to acne and irritation. Switch to something with a lower pH. I use Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser (pH 5.5), which is in the right range and available at drugstores. You can search the sub for other low pH cleansers. Once you switch to a gentler cleanser, give it a week or two before adding another product to your regimen. You want to know if things make your skin better or worse, otherwise you may end up with more skin problems and no idea what caused them.

Once your cleanser has been sorted, you can look into other helpful skincare. Possibly a plant oil high in linoleic acid like rosehip or evening primrose oil to inhibit acne production. A gentle BHA toner would further aid in acne treatment, prevention of ingrown hairs, and maybe reduce the hyperpigmentation that results from these issues.

Eventually, you might want to add azelaic acid. I don鈥檛 know what the source of your acne is, but mine has responded really well to application of Ecological Formulas Melazepam. It鈥檚 really helped with my hyperpigmentation from old spots. I also spot apply it when I see a new spot brewing. There are other products featuring azelaic acid, so do some research and see what will suit your needs.

Again, add skincare products one at a time, with at least a week or two in between. Good luck!

These can be bought as generics on Amazon for super cheap. This generic Zyrtec is 4 cents a pill.

Generic Allegra is quite a bit more expensive but not too terrible.

Generic Claritin is also super cheap.

The generic Zyrtec and Claritin are actually cheaper than what they sell thh Wal-Finate for (which comes out to a little over 10 cents a pill -- and they last all day instead of 4 hours).

I still have over half of my generic Zyrtec bottle from last year linked above.

For that matter, you can also get chlorpheniramine (what Wal-Finate is) on Amazon for much cheaper too. The Walgreen's website has their Wal-Finate listed at $7 for a 50 count of 4mg tablets. Amazon has $12 for a 1000 count of 4mg tablets.

You're welcome :)

I remember back when the most important accessory was an external battery.

Hard to believe I used to be able to walk outside for 6 hours and never have any issues besides battery life.

Nowadays the most important accessory I have to carry with me is cold packs:

Someone made a thread here few days ago about their Pixel phone overheating too and what he did was bought these mini ice packs and placed them behind the phoe while using VR and each pack was usable for 30 minutes up to an hour. The thing is VR is still probably a bit too "Beta" product that in future updates these overheating issues wil be things of the past.

You may be able to buy peppermint capsules instead of going to the clinic. You can get them online for sure (http://www.amazon.com/Heathers-Tummy-Tamers-Peppermint-Capsules/dp/B0002UDK4Q) but I've seen them in many health foods stores and even just some regular pharmacies in the supplement section.

As for the IBS, I'd wait until you see your GP about it, and maybe even a gastroenterologist, until you worry. The doctors at those clinics are just trying to get you in and out as fast as possible, and when there's nothing serious wrong they just want to tell you SOMETHING. Plenty of people have IBS that barely affects their life whatsoever, so IBS is a quick and easy diagnosis to give somebody. Now, lots of people, (like the ones here) are miserable with IBS, so don't scares yourself quite yet with our stories.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before in the post but try putting motion sickness bands on. They are called seabands. I usually get bouts of motion sickness as well and its terrible. Usually happens to me with FPS games. So i got these for a cruise and read that you can also wear it for vertigo, gaming, and rides like roller coasters.

Dramamine works for some people and there are bracelets that are somehow magic. I've never tried those but I know people who have and they say it works. The only cruise ship that I didn't feel seasick on at all was the Allure of the Seas which is I believe the second largest ship.

Azelaic acid! It improves my acne overnight and my PIH fades about twice as fast as usual using this. It's hard to get a hold of if you're in the US/Canada but you can buy Melazepam on amazon or the ordinary 10% azelaic acid. It's otc in Australia and Europe. I use Azclear which is available in Australia. You can also get Finacea which is more effective and layers better but it's more expensive. Sesderma is available in Europe. I believe Benton snail bee high content essence has azelaic acid too, you can get it on iherb.

u/cherrybombedd 路 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I use Melazepan 20% Azelaic Acid (that I get on Amazon for like $15) and it's the only product I've tried that actually has a tangible effect on my rosacea. I've used so many redness products (basically anything on AB that has the redness tag) and none of them do anything except for AA. Plus, it's instant -- or OK, it takes like 10 min, but it's not not other products where it takes a month of use. I also only wait about 5 minutes after application and the effects still last. The one drawback is that it can be drying, but it's not a problem if you add an extra moisturizing layer.

The Ordinary's version is only 10% AA and quite frankly, sucks because of the reason you mentioned. If it's the only one you've tried, do yourself a favor and try a stronger one that has a better texture that TO's!

Been there, done that! You are RIGHT. I've posted about this a few times, but I'm a fat dude and attacked the Amicalola approach trail (from the bottom of the falls) like a nutbag. I was drinking a LOT of water. I drained my 2 liter bag at least twice plus a couple 1 liter bottles. I was sweating like a pig at an Alabama bar-b-que. I started having heart palpitations while on top of Springer and they didn't get any better at all. The next morning, I had to bail on my brother at Three Forks because I was a bit scared. I hit the ER in Dalonega GA and got pumped up up with an IV and I was right as right. The Walmart in Dalonega sold Electrolyte gummies in their pharmacy department and I eat a few of those a day and was fine for the rest of my section.

This year, I started at Damascus and had some of these with me, and I never had a problem.

The thing I learned is that when people tell you to 'stay hydrated! Drink Drink Drink!!!', there can be too much. You have to replace that salt!

u/ldnpoolsound 路 5 pointsr/loseit

Get some electrolyte tablets like these because it's not just water that you've depleted through drinking. Also, consider preventative measures:

If I'm going out to drink, I leave 40 oz of water on my night stand. Drink some water before you go to bed and make it easy for yourself by placing it right there.

Stay hydrated as you're drinking. If you're at a bar, make sure to ask for water if they don't serve it to you automatically.

Pace yourself.

Ugh! I鈥檓 sorry. It is probably worth checking in with your OB and see if there is anything else they can do to help you. Maybe chewing gum or peppermints? Or I found it helpful to carry around something that smelt like peppermint (cheap essential oils), sometimes that made me 鈥渇orget鈥 the gagging.

u/Marshmallowpup 路 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

These emesis bags are AMAZING. They are long/deep so there is no splash back, have a rigid mouth for easy one handed use (no struggling to keep a Ziploc bag open while driving and fighting the terrible urge to vomit on everything), are fairly compact, and twist and 'clip into' a notch on the rigid mouth so when you are done you can close off the bag and not have to look at and smell your ouke until you have a chance to toss it.

I was puking until delivery and this is what made it not ruin my life completely (these and Diclegis). I kept a few in every car and in my purse and various places around the house.

For the peeing I have no easy solution other than what I did- just always keep a towel in the car to frantically stuff under you when you feel that pukey urge coming :P

I hope you feel better soon!

I was a cross country runner in high school/college, and lots of girls used this stuff and/or anti-blister sticks to avoid chafing and irritation, and it's like a dry lube! Bonus, if you try the one I linked, it's just dimethicone, which is a main ingredient in primers, and I know some girls in college would use it for their thighs AND under their makeup as a primer, so, even if it doesn't work for the irritation, it could still be useful, so long as it doesn't irritate your skin.

Mineral oil breaks me out personally (I'm in a tiny minority, it works for p much everyone else haha so don't worry too much), but when I used it I just bought any baby oil that was unfragranced (just has one ingredient on the back - paraffinum liquidum aka mineral oil). Johnson's does one called 'First Touch'. You can use regular fragranced mineral oil if your skin isn't sensitive.

Hemp oil wise, just buy any cold-pressed 100% hemp seed/hemp oil off Amazon. This would be a decent example http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nutiva-Organic-Hempseed-Oil-710ml/dp/B000GAO91K. :)

There's two formulas for Nivea creme, one that's made in Mexico (and available in the US) and one that's made in Germany (and available in Europe and the UK). The German formula is meant to be far superior, but if it's too difficult to get a hold of I wouldn't worry at all, they're both super moisturising. Be aware, though, they are SUPER thick. Like, it feels almost like nappy rash cream when you put it on your face, haha. You just have to rub it in for a couple minutes.

I used to go through phases where I鈥檇 get at least 1 UTI a month for 5 months in a row. It got to the point where I鈥檇 just burst into tears every time I realized I had another one and was SO anxious having sex or drinking anything besides water. I forget where I read about it (might have been on here) but I started drinking a teaspoon of D-Mannose powder in a glass of water every day and haven鈥檛 had a single one since. It鈥檚 been a little over 2 years. I still have other bladder issues like frequency, trouble emptying, etc. but no infection or pain.

This is the one I buy. It comes in capsule form too but didn鈥檛 find it as effective. Plus, the powder tastes really good.

It can be a little pricey but beyond worth it imo. UTIs are ass. I hope this or something else you find helps <3

u/thr33littlebirds 路 3 pointsr/kratom

Coming from a woman who has chronic UTIs: Kratom has had no direct effects, positive or negative (for me at least) when dealing with a bladder infection. One thing that's monumentally important while battling a UTI is flushing your system. Because kratom can dry you out, it's important to drink massive amounts of water to flush out your bladder.

I've tried all the treatments, and been through way too many antibiotic treatments for UTIs. After seeing several dozen doctors, my most recent recommended D-Mannose. It's a god send.

It's a sugar that binds with bacteria in your bladder and continues through your UTI tract, flushing the bacteria away. I use it both preventative and as a treatment. I get infections a tenth as often as I used to. I highly recommend it if you struggle with bladder infections.

Best of luck!

u/coloradyo 路 3 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I'm assuming you're most definitely not a mutant, but for lack of knowledge in this field, I'll throw out a few suggestions. When I talked with my GYN about UTI-like symptoms, she recommended making dietary changes regarding bladder/urethral irritants. Mostly taking out tomatoes, really starchy or citrus-y foods. I've seen similar recommendations floating around for individuals with forms of interstitial cystitis.

here's a link

and this opens up the document with a comprehensive food trigger listing

Something else I've seen thrown around here has been the mention of D-Mannose, which can be used in powder or pill format. It's meant to prevent bacteria from adhering to urethral walls and therefore causing or escalating symptoms. I forget the full details, but it's something about the bacteria being heavily attracted to the sugar particles or something. I haven't seen it in many stores (but if you have a local Rite Aid, most carry it mixed with cranberry pills), though it seems to be fairly popular on Amazon.

here's one of the more popular versions

u/TheConeOfShame805 路 3 pointsr/xxfitness

D Mannose changed my life. Seriously. Trick is how you take it: if you feel a UTI coming on:

  • pee first if you need to
  • put a teaspoon in a small amount of water (like 4 oz), mix, drink
  • this is the critical part: don't drink anything for about 45-60 minutes.
  • Then, when 45-60 minutes is up, drink a ton of water and pee

    You can repeat this if you want, but I have found that 1 or 2 times stops a UTI in its tracks. If you have a raging UTI, then do it every 1-2 hours for a bit. You could also use it preventitavely, such as after sex or before you go to sleep, for example.

    D-Mannose works by binding to e-coli in your bladder. (UTIs happen when the e-coli sticks to the walls of you bladder - so anything you can do to keep the e-Coli moving along and out is good. Cranberry has the effect of making the walls slippery and harder for e-coli to stick to). Then you pee all of it out (the e-coli and the d-mannose). e-coli is the cause of most UTIs, but occasionally it can be something else.

    You can buy it on Amazon for cheap but if you can't wait, I got mine once at Whole Foods for way more $$. You might also find it at a local vitamin type store. Definitely get the powder form - the capsules are good for travel but I feel less effective.

    No side effects for me. My understanding is your body does not absorb d-mannose. It's been a great, over the counter alternative to antibiotics, which mess up my gut flora, BCPs effectiveness etc.

    Of course, if this doesn't work quickly, or you have more severe symtoms (such as a fever), definitely go to a doctor.

    On a side note, there were some studies (or urban legends) a few years back that chicken is a major contributor to UTIs. I cut down on chicken (as well as occasionally taking d-mannose preventatively after sex) and have not had any UTIs for about a year

It's probably motion sickness. I get this with certain games, mainly FPS games. I also get that overly warm feeling. Make sure you drink enough water.

Hi! Chemo survivor here! (Disclosure: I went through chemo for an auto immune disease, not cancer).

I would steer away from books, actually. Reading, watching TV, and anything where I had to focus my eyes made me sick.

  • this simple acupuncture band helped. But I survived off of audible tor entertainment.


  • A friend of mine bought my audible subscription, and then also got a bunch of our friends to give me their logins so I could listen to books they鈥檇 already purchased without having to use my credits, which was really thoughtful.

  • My biggest saving grace were essential oils- not because I believed they would cure me, but because every little smell also made me nauseous. Wild Thera makes a bunch of different types of balms with oils and beeswax, which I carried everywhere to mask the smells of the word.

  • If you鈥檙e willing to drop a pretty penny and the friend doesn鈥檛 already have AC and/or a HEPA air purifier, those are both crucial. Chemo made me sweat a TON, and I couldn鈥檛 sleep through the night unless it was 5 degrees. The hepa air filter is just to lower the risk of infection.

  • Ergonomic pillows, leg bolsters, etc. she鈥檚 going to spend a lot of time in bed, so it鈥檚 important she鈥檚 properly supported.

  • Sleep Mask

  • Ice Packs/Heating pad

  • Coloring books with colored pencils

  • travel scrabble

  • a cozy blanket or sweatshirt. She鈥檒l probably have a PICC line put in, meaning they鈥檒l need to access her collarbone ish area so off the shoulder sweaters are great.

  • socks with anti slip bottoms -the hospital will make you wear their scratchy ones if she gets admitted with regular socks

  • sour and hard candy

    I think those are all the things I wanted, other than my friends to take me to chemo. I liked having a friend go with me because it passed the time faster having someone to talk with.

    Edit: whoever said weed has it right. It really helped, a ton. I wouldn鈥檛 smoke it, but some of my favorite hard candies and gummies were weed candy. I live in Seattle though, so it鈥檚 probably more accessible.

Grab some SeaBands or their generic equivalent. We keep several sets on the boat for those prone to seasickness and newbies who even think they might be. As a rule, if you get carsick, you probably also get seasick.

If you do find yourself feeling seasick, you are better off on the deck than down below. Spend some time looking at the horizon to calm your stomach.

Also, sunscreen! It can be tough to find shade out on the water, plus, you have the sun reflected back at you. That can lead to a seriously painful burn, so, cover up!

Relax, have fun, and listen carefully to the skipper, and I think you'll have a great time.

u/avomwew 路 3 pointsr/PSVR

Try seabands! They're wristbands that push on a pressure point, and they have worked really well for me. Has worked for me in VR and for motion sickness in cars, planes, and boats, with no side effects. And you can wear them whenever you need them, so also a much cheaper option than motion sickness medicines.

Not OP, but this one is 20% AzA. It works well. The Ordinary also offers a 10% AzA product.

u/FeelBetterTomorrow 路 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Check out the Dry Skin HG Thread from a couple of weeks ago.

For controlling acne, I find that Azelaic Acid works best for my skin. I use Melazepam which has 20% AA.

For managing sensitive skin, you really have to baby it and "listen" to it. As with all things, especially skin care, YMMV on what is going to work for you (for example, something in Simple's formulas makes me break out terribly despite it supposedly being for sensitive skin). Pay close attention to ingredients lists to avoid common irritants and go back to the basics if something is irritating your skin.

u/prettymess 路 3 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I use Melazepam (20% AzA), but a lot of people on the SCA sub use TO's Azelaic Acid Suspension (10% AzA). Both non-AB of course! Besides the %, the main difference is the consistency. TO's is silicone based and Melazepam is a gritty cream. Honestly both formulations suck in my opinion lol but there aren't many OTC AzA products to choose from. It can sting a bit at first so if you decide to try it out, use it after your moisturizer (and especially because of your eczema). I read in a study that it's just as effective when layered over other products!

And here's an awesome write up about AzA: http://simpleskincarescience.com/azelaic-acid/

u/whippetshuffle 路 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I prefer Melazepam thus far. It鈥檚 still AzA, just a different formulation that鈥檚 also cheaper per oz.

u/kitty_hawkins 路 3 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I LOVE AZELAIC ACID. So I pretty well thought I would live with a red face forever along with a severely damaged moisture barrier. The biggest thing that helped me was azelaic acid. I use Melazepam from Amazon. Cheap and works! It's thick at first but smoothes into my skin leaving it kinda matte. At first it itched like crazy and I wasn't using it consistently enough. Then after more research, I decided to use it up and give it a chance. Along with anything high in ceramide, my skin got used to the 20% AzA. Maybe around the 10th day of twice daily use, my skin finally started to look normal. I also switch my oil cleanser to an olive oil based one and saw even more improvement in my redness. I've just added in Vit C to my under eye area and continuing to use Melazepam around the rest of my face and neck and my ENTIRE COMPLEXION is EVEN NOW! Would never have believed that was possible. Melazepam has also minimized my SFs on my nose, has finally stopped this ingrown hair on my neck from forming (I've had it for years!!!), and has cleared all the CCs on my forehead. I repeat: I loooooove azelaic acid, specifically Melazepam!

Current routine:

AM

Garnier Micellar Water - pink cap or Cerave Foaming cleanser

Cosrx Aha/bha Clarifying Treatment Toner

BELITAE Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid to my under eye area and upper cheeks

Melazepam to the rest of my face and neck, especially my nose. Sometimes I wait after the Vit C but not usually since I don't use them in the same spots.

I do wait 15-20 minutes after my actives step.

SCINIC First Treatment Essence 3 skin method. My face loves this more than the Missha FTE.

SCINIC Snail All In One Ampoule or SCINIC Honey All In One Ampoule depending on the day.

CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion

A'PIEU PURE BLOCK Natural Sun Cream SPF45/PA+++ I don't see much sunlight at all but when I do, this one keeps me from turning beet red imediately upon application.

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Derma Green-Cure Solution Recover Cream This is the best thing I've found for redness and skin barrier repair! My skin loves ceramides so much and this soothes like nothing I've found yet.

Medela Tender Care Lanolin Tube on my lips. Yes it's nip cream. I couldn't use it all up while nursing and it causes my skin to redden so it's perfect for a little lip color.

All depending on how I'm feeling that evening:

Some or all of these layers followed by CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion and

Guerisson 9 Complex Horse Oil Cream

Pretty sure my shower filter, Mermosis, has also helped my skin and hair.

I also use sometimes REVITABOOST PEEL Anti-Aging Peel Pads or Cosrx Bha Blackhead Power Liquid but I skip my AzA on those days and just go back to my regular routine the following day. These are rare for me though because they make me ridiculously red again.

u/mama-chari 路 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Hey! I get discoid eczema on my face, too!

It sounds like you're doing a lot to remedy the issue. I have a few questions for you:

What's your experience with washing your face? Would you consider washing with a gentle, hydrating cleanser before applying the Cetaphil Restoraderm on your face?

I've found that washing my face at night with a gentle cleanser (I use CereVe's Hydrating cleanser), patting dry, then applying a thick cream followed by something occlusive on the discs, really helps calm any irritation and keeps the eczema well moisturized (I use Aveeno Eczema Therapy Cream, but Aquaphor also has worked for me).

How has the Vaseline been working for you, and how do you apply it?

You mentioned you do tennis; do you wear sunscreen while you play?

You mentioned you get it around your hairline. Do you mean around your facial hair, or your actual hairline?

Here's a few things that I've learned in dealing with it over the years:

  1. I never rub it; I always pat when drying or applying product to it. There's something about rubbing that makes the eczema more irritated. This includes touching my face, and when I wash my face. If you have a specific area that's more prone to getting it (for me, it's eyelids and neck), don't rub those areas either (even if the eczema isn't present). Especially when drying off with a towel.

  2. I almost never conceal it. I know this isn't ideal for you during interviews, so discard this if you'd like. But, honestly, I've had a really hard time finding a cosmetic product that doesn't irritate my eczema in some way. I honestly avoid applying anything potentially irritating to a flareup.

  3. Sunscreen can be really irritating. Especially chemical sunscreen. I switched to a chemical sunscreen without alcohols and without the "dry touch" feature that some have.

    I'll edit this post if I can think of more advice. I've struggled with this for a large portion of my adult life, so, I really understand where you're coming from. I'm sorry you have to deal with this.
u/Expensive_History 路 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I used Aveeno Eczema Moisturizing Cream when Vanicream wouldn鈥檛 help.

My eye area would get really irritated and red, while also flaking. So I figured, this is kind of similar to the symptoms I experienced as a kid when dealing with eczema. So I hypothesized that using a product designed for eczema would help out my face. And it did. It really calms down any irritation on my face.

Here鈥檚 how I apply it: Use a layer of the cream on the face, then apply Differin, avoiding the eye area. Then wash hands. Take another layer of the cream and mix it with a tiny bit of water. And then layer this on top.

Fellow migraineur, here! I agree with you. It鈥檚 not a competition and I make sure people around me are informed of what migraines actually are鈥擭OT 鈥渏ust a headache.鈥 We learn to live in spite of the pain, period.

I always had migraines and they got worse after I had a (hemorrhagic) stroke. Long story, but the short version is I had a brain aneurysm we didn鈥檛 know I had, until it ruptured and nearly killed me. I was in my mid 20s when I had a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a type of stroke, which is not the same as an ischemic stroke although either one is a seriously life threatening and life altering event! I am VERY blessed and grateful to be alive and function as well as I do. I know I seem 鈥渘ormal,鈥 but oh is that so false!

I鈥檝e had neuropsychological evaluations, so many diagnostic tests, medical bills and records to show just how real this invisible illness is. With that said, I don鈥檛 spend time or energy I don鈥檛 have to spend, trying to convince someone I鈥檓 in severe pain. It鈥檚 just not worth it! I totally understand the frustration, though.

I鈥檝e had chronic migraines ever since my emergency brain surgery, and along with now having an acquired brain injury, I鈥檝e had to make myself find a way to keep going! It鈥檚 very much do or die, and most days it feels like do even though I feel like I鈥檓 dying.

I鈥檓 seven and a half years out, next week, and I can say with 100% confidence, it鈥檚 very possible to look 鈥渘ormal鈥 while you鈥檙e falling apart inside. You just find a way to keep moving.

One suggestion I learned from lurking this sub for over a year before I even joined Reddit, the headache hat!!! I鈥檝e been on 13 medications (very much trial and error鈥攆elt like a science experiment sometimes) since February 2012, and thankfully Aimovig works well for me so far, but NOTHING has helped the way this has. I am down to three medications, two preventatives, one rescue.

Sometimes the headache hat by itself is just what I need to relax and relaxing allows me to reset my mind by not focusing so much on the pain.

It鈥檚 so difficult to relax when you鈥檙e in pain and are so tired of it, I know. The little things like this really do help! I even made sure my neurologist knew to please share this with other patients. It has been a huge help to me!

nope, if you do a sour mash it only takes a few extra days.

  • basically mash as normal (you can do this with extract too) and instead of boiling your wort, transfer it to a bucket and add in a couple handfuls of unmilled grain once it gets down to around 120 deg F. wrap a heat pad around it and let it sit a few days.. trying it as you go until you are happy with how sour it is.


  • then you boil (optional even, I do 30 min since i'm happy with the sourness at that point) and add any hops if you want.. cool it, add your yeast.. once it's done fermenting transfer it to a secondary on top of the blackberries.


    nice part about sours are that you don't have to worry too much about sterilizing the fruit. i usually just freeze them and then put them right into the secondary. bigger fruit i just chop up first and freeze them.


    if you actually decide to do it this heat pad works great because it doesn't auto shut off and keeps a 6 gallon bucket at around 110-120 consistently - http://www.amazon.com/Sunbeam-732-500-King-Heating-UltraHeatTechnology/dp/B000FGDDI0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1398275216&sr=8-1&keywords=heat+pad

The best thing you can do is find a rescue -- usually your local wildlife shelter will have a list of "squirrel fosters", who are private citizens who will take in squirrels to rehab.

In the meantime, there are two BIG issues: heat, hydration.

People immediately think "food", but they will die of dehydration much faster than starvation. If they fell from their mom's nest and haven't been rescued, they may have been without hydration for some time.

Go to your local grocery store. In the "baby" section they will have a product called "Pedialyte". Pedialyte is an electrolyte replacement for babies with diarhea, and it is excellent for rehydrating. Get the unflavored version. Warm it up(TEST the heat; do not give them accidentally boiled liquid), and feed it to them with a syringe, or a dropper if you can't get a syringe.

Try to give them some more hydration every hour to two hours, for the first several "feedings." Digestion is dehydrating -- giving them food immediately can be fatal.

They need to be kept in a warm place. A box with towels and a heating pad or hot water bottle underneath will do(I know this link won't help you right now, but this heating pad on Amazon is a lifesaver if you look after orphaned animals. It is the only heating pad I know off that doesn't FREAKING TURN ITSELF OFF as a safety measure. This has been indispensable for me, looking after kittens, as I need it to stay on a low setting constantly, to keep their body heat up). Don't place them directly on a heating pad or hot water bottle. Again, you're looking for WARM, not HOT. Always err on the side of slightly less warm than you would think. You'd be surprised how much a space warms up when you leave a pad under a couple of towels.

For food, once you have them hydrated, they will take puppy formula(Esbilac).

Honestly, just read this: Baby Squirrel Care.

Also, don't underestimate a good local vet. While most vets are not at all wildlife care experts, you'd be surprised what animal lovers will do to save a life. They may also have contacts for people who can help you.

The majority of people who rescue squirrels, possums and raccoons -- "nuisance" animals -- are not officials with the wildlife service, or officially sanctioned rehab centers. They are almost always private citizens who became backdoor experts because some infant animal landed on their doorstep and they had to work it out. Wildlife centers and vets often know these individuals, and will make use of them as a foster home, as the centers usually have their hands full dealing with endangered and higher priority animals.

I use this heating pad (I need the larger one because I have two bins). It appears this smaller one is the same only smaller (same as far as not having an auto shut off "feature").

Like /u/Falling_Glass I usually just use Gold Bond Body Powder, but there are some other options depending on what exactly you are looking for. Bodyglide comes in a stick like deodorant, and it seems to have good reviews. Elitefts just started selling Dr. Greenfield's Chafe Shield, but I don't know much about it. Anti Monkey Butt Powder is another product I have heard about people using. There is also a Chafing Relief Powder Gel that works well, but is pretty expensive (and is marketed to women if that is an issue). Maybe one of these will fit what you are looking for.

Did Body Glide change their formula? I posted about how much I love Monistat Anti-Chafe Gel a while back and bought some Body Glide at the recommendation of others.

I did some googling after that happened and it sounded like a bunch of hikers said it used to be awesome but stopped working very well in the last year or two, so they thought maybe they had?

u/ihcun 路 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I had that for awhile. It occurred most noticeably after I took the course of antibiotics prescribed for it. It was like you described - very mild sensation of UTI, not awful, but enough to make you notice it all day. So I took these cranberry pills once a day, and also used this D-mannose powder. I'm not sure which one worked because I was doing them both, but the UTI went away completely after a week of doing those. And whenever I thought I felt it coming back, I'd just take a cranberry pill and it'd disappear. I haven't had it since, and I'm not taking the pills anymore.

And this is the part I'm hesitant to say because there's absolutely no scientific evidence backing this up, but I stopped eating the sausage meat from McDonalds. Because both of the times I had really severe UTIs, I'd had sex and gotten a sausage biscuit from McD's the next morning. I'm pretty sure it's a mental thing, but I can't eat sausage biscuits from there anymore.

Here's links to the products I use.

https://smile.amazon.com/NOW-Foods-733739028105-D-Mannose-3-Ounce/dp/B000HCMK90?sa-no-redirect=1&th=1

D-Mannose is basically the distilled cranberry sugar that helps with urinary problems (and you obviously can't make your cat drink cranberry juice). I use the gelcaps and give him half of one per meal mixed in with his wet food (so about 500mg per day (1/2 tsp) while he seems to be having issues). I only give it to him if he seems more highly stressed out or has been licking his bottom more frequently and it has cleared up those symptoms. Usually for about 5 days until I am certain it won't recur. Unfortunately if he's already blocked or in a more serious state it can't do anything to help that :(

The product linked above is just the powder without the gelcaps, which is slightly less expensive.

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0013OSMVG/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&th=1

Glucosamine Sulfate is the same stuff they give to people with joint issues. It's good for that but also lowers inflammation overall and has been shown to help rebuild the bladder lining. I give him 1/2 capsule twice daily mixed into his food. Again this is only given when he seems to be showing symptoms rather than at all times.

u/StaceyMS 路 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Ohh...maybe I can help. I had a major surgery that impacted my urinary tract and I use d-mannose capsules (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000HCMK90?th=1) and I have found that they really work for me. They keep bacteria from sticking together and forming a ladder up which is sometimes why infections re-occur after the first one. I hope this works for you.

Good luck. I'm sorry you're dealing with this.

u/faerielfire 路 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I take a little D-Mannose every day. Someone recommended it on reddit a year ago or so and it was completely out of the antibiotics/cranberry juice league: no side effects, potent as a preventative, natural, cheap. I suggest anyone with an issue for UTIs (in addition to tinkling soon after sex, within 5-10 mins) take 2-3 pea size amounts of this a day as a preventative.

I'm on my second cold in a month and since breastfeeding means no decongestants, the congestion is rough.

I might buy both Netipot and Sinus Rinse. They both do the same thing, but with slightly different mechanisms. Some people prefer one and hate the other.

A sinus rinse kit or Neti Pot might be nice to help flush the gunk out of your sinuses. It did wonders for me after sinus surgery. It also helps with my allergies on high pollen days and clears out the sawdust breathed in while woodworking.

u/DickensBentley 路 2 pointsr/autoimmunity

In the past year I've started having tons of strange symptoms, including alopecia and Sjogren's-like symptoms, which I'm fairly confident are autoimmune, although I was seronegative for everything, including Sjogren's, on an autoimmune panel.

At the beginning, I did have sores in my mouth, and I think that's largely because I was sleeping with my mouth open. Eventually, my mouth was so dry that if it opened at night, the inside of my mouth would hurt and it would wake me up, and I was also worried about tooth decay, gum recession, and vocal damage. Some things that have helped me keep my mouth closed at night are these nasal strips and this sinus rinse a couple hours before bed if I notice a stuffy nose. I used to prop my head up with pillows, although I no longer need to. When my symptoms were worse, I also used this mouthwash. During the day, the dryness was irritating, which just forced me to keep my mouth closed unless I was exercising.

Keep an eye on the teeth and gums around the opening of your mouth. For me, it's mostly the bottom front teeth, and I notice that I just need to make sure I floss often. My singing voice is also declining, but I don't really know what to do about that.

I haven't been able to get anything helpful out of the doctors I've seen, but I've been able to make improvements with diet. I track all of my lifestyle factors closely in a spreadsheet and analyze the data in python. I highly recommend tracking your symptoms, diet, sleep, exercise, supplements, and anything else you think might have an effect. I'm starting a group for people with autoimmune or undiagnosed diseases to talk about what's helped and hurt them, data analysis, doctors, etc. PM me if you're interested, and anyone else who reads this, feel free to PM me as well.

It is weird at first, feels like getting water up your nose at the beach. More, after 15 years of doing it, I just love it. I instantly breathe better afterward.

It got so bad for me, my doctor told me he could not prescribe any more antibiotics. Now... I have been able to forget about it.

I experience a similar effect when I play Minecraft. I'm only good for about an hour before it starts to set in. If I continue to play it only gets worse.

I never have figured out any game settings to alleviate this issue. I have. however, found some remedies that help me to get my minecraft fix!

Medications like Dimenhydrinate (the brand name id Dramamine, but if you look/ask for the drug name I just listed, you can get it at half the cost from your local pharmacy) are a big help for me.

Another thing that I've found to work well for me personally are Sea Bands. These little guys are awesome. They apply pressure to a pressure point on your wrists. I don't pretend to understand why they work, but they do. It is different for each person though so they may be more or less effective for your mom. Some advice I would offer you though is if she does try them, put them on like 15-20 minutes before she plays. For me, it seemed to help more when I wore them in advance.

One last piece of advice I can offer is in regards to screen/monitor size and full-screen mode. One of the things that helps me with Minecraft when I'm not using one of the other remedies is to alter the screen mode. I have a 24" monitor that I play on so when I'm planning on playing Minecraft, I put the game in windowed mode and resize the window to about 1/2 the screen size. Having a smaller screen seems to help with how quickly the nausea sets on for me.

Minecraft is the only game in my collection that makes me sick and it drives me nuts because it's one of my favorites. I hope that my tips can help you play with your mom! I would like to add though that I'm certainly not a doctor, so take my tips with that in mind. And your mom should probably read the warnings/consult her doctor before she takes the pills.

I work on commercial fishing boats and have too much experience with sea sickness. Some people eventually get used to it but some do not. A surprising number of experienced seamen get seasick for the first couple days when they have not been at sea for a while. My fear with vr is that sea sickness (at least for me) subsides after a day or two on the water as my body gets used to the motion of the boat. What sucks is that if I hop off of one boat and go out on another I often get a little queasy because the action is different! And I am back to square one! I don't know how people subject to motion sickness are going to react when switching from game to game or in/out of vr.
There are lots of low impact sea/motion sickness medicines that might help avoid VR sickness. For nasty weather or when I am going out to sea for the first time in a while I use Meclizine (active ingredient in Dramamine and other motion sickness medicines)or a ginger supplement and both work quite well for me. There are also some bands(http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001F731N0/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_a_it?qid=1459395786&sr=81&keywords=sea+sickness+wristbands&pi=SY200_QL40&dpPl=1&dpID=41aCD%2Be%2B9TL&ref=plSrch)that help lots of people on boats that I plan on trying for vr so I don't have to take medicine to play video games. I have consulted my doctor about constant Meclizine because I spend close to a month at sea sometimes and she said it is no more dangerous than aspirin to take regularly but I think I'll just try the bands and some ginger ale. If it does turn out to be a problem for you I highly recommend AVOIDING any patches lots of people I know have complained about serious rashes/borderline chemical burns from those damn things. Another pro tip is that if you feel you have to yak just go get it done you will feel a million times better if you just give in hahahaha sorry for the essay I hope it's useful!

This is great! I think we have really similar skin, and seeing your process helped me understand my order of operations.

  • I really recommend trying out micellar water for an AM cleanse and to remove makeup at night before your PM cleanse; it made a huge difference for me.
  • Right now I'm experimenting with azaleic acid to deal with rosacea. TO's 10% did nothing for me and was pretty meh, which I've heard a lot of other people say, so I'm trying out a 15% cream link and I'm waiting to see if it makes a difference. I haven't tried out my bottle of TO Niacinamide 10% + Zinc so I'm excited to hear how much you love it!

u/alexandria1994 路 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

You can try the vitamin c; I used Timeless' on my PIE but didn't really notice any change. Other people swear by it, so it just depends on you.

My derm told me to try azelaic acid since it's supposed to fade redness. I use Melazepam, but The Ordinary has one too.

Simple Skincare Science has an article that mentions hydration. I will say that since I've added a lot more hydration to my routine, the marks are fading quicker than before. You can try adding Vaseline or Aquaphor after your nighttime moisturizer to "seal in" that moisture overnight.

There's also this post that explains what the red marks are, how you know you have it, and how to treat it.

Hormonal Acne

If it's hormonal acne, then it's an internal problem, which means that topical products won't be that effective.

Possible solutions for hormonal acne: birth control (maybe try a different one?), Spironolactone, spearmint tea, evening primrose oil. Ask your doctor about all these things, including the tea and oil.

You've probably heard this advice before, but to reduce hormonal acne, you should: avoid sugar, avoid dairy, drink a lot of water (aim for 3+ liters per day), get enough sleep (aim for 8 hours per night), exercise (aim for 3 30-minute sessions per week), and reduce stress (yoga and meditation really do help; I also recommend spending time on hobbies that you enjoy).

Products recs: I've never personally tried these products, but Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum and Zymogen Houttuynia Cordata Ferment Serum are often recommended for soothing hormonal acne.

> What have you used on your seb derm?

EVERYTHING. Lol Basically, any lotion/topical I found that mentioned seb derm, I tried it. The dermatologist gave me prescription strength hydrocortisone and had me use that with an OTC anti-fungal. I've tried cleansing with sea salt, honey masks, etc. Everything would work awesomely for a week, and then the bumps would start forming again.


With everything I've read, the most recommended ingredients were zinc oxide, salicylic acid, and sulfur. My skin has actually been looking pretty good for a week or so now (knock on wood), so I'm sticking with my current routine of:


AM

  • Rinse with water

  • Apply a good layer of pine tar soap and let sit while I shampoo my hair; rinse

  • After drying, apply a thin layer of Cetaphil Restoraderm lotion to just the area around my mouth and nose and let sit while I brush my teeth

  • Apply EltaMD UV Clear sunscreen all over face


    PM

  • Wash with Noble Zinc soap

  • Every-other-night, apply BHA all over; let sit for 20 minutes

  • Opposite nights, Vitamin C serum; let sit for 20 minutes

  • Thin layer of Aveeno Eczema Therapy cream around mouth and nose

  • Use Bee Naturals Oil-Free Moisturaizer everywhere else.


    I did just get a silver serum, which I ordered from overseas prior to my skin starting to calm with the current routine. If things start going south again, I'm going to give that a try.

Awesome that you're trying to get healthy. As someone who lived across the street from a McDonalds for the first 16 years of my life, I get you. It's so easy and once you get into that habit, it's super hard to get out. And I've always had a great metabolism, so it didn't physically show, but by the time I was 17 I had high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Not awesome things to have!

First question I have is, when you're experiencing nausea, does the nausea make you throw up all the time, or is it often just that feeling of needing to throw up? My mom is someone who, when feeling nauseous, makes herself throw up so that she doesn't have to feel that way anymore - that's not great for your body. If you can avoid throwing up, try to - a lot of the time nausea can pass. If you find it doesn't, try to find things that relieve the feeling instead. Ginger is great - try ginger candies like these: https://www.amazon.com/Tummydrops-Ginger-individually-wrapped-drops/dp/B004BH15K2

A lot of people recommend cutting soda out completely or switching to diet, but as someone who LOVES soda and HATES diet soda, what I do is keep soda for weekends and special occasions. Switch to water for meals, which will suck for awhile, but will get better over time. It helps if your water is as cold as you can get it, preferably with ice in it - taste buds don't taste cold as well as warmer stuff, so the water will taste better cold if you don't particularly enjoy drinking it in the first place. And go SLOW with water. More water in your diet is important - but if you drink too much too fast, especially when you're not used to it, you can feel sick.

I like breakfast foods, hate eating in the morning. I feel full when I wake up and the thought of food is gross. SO, find something light that you DO like to eat, and eat it a little later - whenever you finally feel hungry. It should be easier to do this in college since your schedule is more flexible. Alternatively, have snacks on you, even if they're lame snacks (Granola bars, 100 calorie cookie packets, crackers).

If I were you, since you don't usually cook and aren't used to non-preprepared foods, I wouldn't worry too much about counting calories or eating only health foods yet. Going light on junk food, fast food, and soda will already cut a ton of calories - so don't worry about gaining weight by switching foods. If you ARE worried, anyway, just watch your portions. Never eat until you feel stuffed or gross. Eat lots of tiny meals instead of 3 big ones. Split your meals into snacks (Have a salad. Then an hour later have a piece of chicken. Maybe eat half your sandwich at 11am, and the other half at 1pm. Eat a snack a few hours before dinner, and eat light during dinner.) You don't want to feel like you're always hungry, but you also don't want to feel bloated.

Start with easy to cook foods that sound tasty or are home-cooked versions of foods you already like. (Chicken cutlets? Homemade mac and cheese?) Also, look for healthier versions of the boxed food you like - Trader Joe's makes a pretty damn good and healthier boxed mac & cheese.

Also, add more rice and fiber to your diet - that will help a LOT with stomach problems.

I get a ton of stomach/bathroom problems when I'm anxious. For awhile I thought I had a medical condition like IBS, but I realized that it's just my anxiety irritating my stomach - so, I make sure I have GasX and Pepto pills on me at all times so that I have that as a nice safety net.

Try lots of stuff. If you try and don't like a vegetable, don't make yourself eat it. Don't try a veggie in a way you know you won't like it - if you think you'll like broccoli and cheese but know you won't like it plain, try it with cheese first (or heavily seasoned, or with soy sauce, etc). I know that's not as healthy, but work your way in, or you'll have a much harder time. You can work your way to the healthiest options slowly.

Have your tried snacking throughout the day - a plain cracker here and there? You can also try sucking on a hard ginger candy.

Has anyone tried any morning sickness candies? I need candies that are individually wrapped to bring into work, but I wanted to see if anyone had a specific kind that worked for them??

I found these two on Amazon that sound like they could be promising? I don't really like ginger, so I was hoping the raspberry ones would mask some of the ginger taste.

Electrolytes are sodium, potassium, and magnesium. When you keto (especially at the beginning) you are drinking a lot of water and peeing a lot, which can deplete your electrolytes. So an electrolyte supplement includes those things. I got NuSalt to sprinkle on foods because it has a lot of potassium which is my lowest one I think. I also ordered these electrolyte tablets that contain all three in small amounts, to carry with me for when I get dizzy/crampy. I had previously been drinking PoweradeZero which was ok, but kind of expensive, and didn't have that much of the minerals in it. Also full of fake sugar.

For detailed info I would highly recommend this segement of the FAQ from /r/keto http://www.reddit.com/r/keto/wiki/faq#wiki_what_is_.201Cketo_flu.201D_and_how_long_will_i_have_it.3F

u/theguyfromthattime 路 2 pointsr/backpacking

Personally, I prefer to just drink straight water, so I just started using electrolyte tablets instead. I haven't been doing it very long, but they do seem to help, though I've been meaning to do a little more research into figuring out how much I should be taking.

Yup I ordered these off amazon, they have an absorbant pad. I haven't had to use one yet, but I felt close today.

I feel you on the public transit issue. I found I HAVE to sit in a forward facing seat, which means staying on the slower train instead of transferring 1/2 way to a fast one, because it only has sideways seats (which are hard to get) and tends to smell worse. There's a nicer moving commuter train I can take, but its hard for me to catch in the morning and is a mile walk to my office. I'll take it home sometimes. Part of me just want to start driving, but I'm so tired and would get mad in traffic, plus the weather has been snowy and I don't like driving in that. The elevator ride up to my floor nearly did me in this morning.

u/Peter_Parkingmeter 路 2 pointsr/ChronicPain

Pregabalin/Lyrica and gabapentin are awesome. I prefer gabapentin, because pregabalin makes me feel too "domed" for daily use, and I got too tolerant and dependant.

So far, I've tried every gabapentinoid except Fluoro-phenibut. Out of all the gabapentinoids, gabapentin is probably my favourite, phenibut is probably my second favourite, and pregabalin is my third favourite.

I absolutely love all of them. It's too bad I can't use pregabalin more. I still have 50mg left from my old script, but I'm saving it for a really special occasion.

Tramadol is also an SNRI, but also a quite weak opioid. I wonder why it stopped working well.

You might be interested in NMDA antagonists like dextromethorphan/dextrorphan, or ketamine. They're pretty much the most effective neuropathic pain treatments.


Ket is schedule III, DXM is legal OTC (DO NOT USE ANYTHING WITH ACETAMINOPHEN, GUAIFENESIN, PHENYLEPHRINE, OR ANTI-HISTAMINES! Only use products with ONLY DEXTROMETHORPHAN AS THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT, such as RoboCough or Robafen NON-DROWSY)

EDIT: Since we're on the topic, DXM is also a weak SNRI, which you may like. DXM is mostly just an SNRI with a few other weak properties, but most of its effects come from its metabolite, Dextrorphan/DXO, which is an NMDA antagonist, SNRI, etc. I recommend trying DXM, it's insanely cheap and you can legally order it to your house

Amitriptyline is a TCA, but "TCA" is a chemical-therapeutic classification (its chemical structure is tricyclic, and its therapeutic goal is primarily as an antidepressant).

SNRI is a method of action (the pharmacological way the drug works).

There are 4 classification types for drugs, and mixes of them (such as the previously mentioned "chemical-therapeutic" class).

  • Chemical

    This classification groups drugs by their chemical properties, such as "steroid" or "tricyclic"

  • Mechanism of action

    This classification groups drugs by their pharmacological action, such as "dopaminergic", "Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor", and "COx Inhibitor"

  • Mode of action

    This classification groups drugs by the anatomical/functional changes they induce, such as "bronchodilator", "antifungal", etc.

  • Therapeutic class

    This classification groups drugs by their therapeutic goal(s), such as "analgesic", "sedative", "antidepressant", and "antiepileptic"
u/Dethylmadehide 路 2 pointsr/Drugs

Extremely fair point, I guesshere鈥檚 an alternative

u/vanderpyyy 路 2 pointsr/Drugs

At the very least, try to get your hands on some gabapentin or its brother phenibut. Your doctor probably won't have problems prescribing gabapentin. They're like benzo-lite and great for preventing seizures and GABA downregulation related withdrawal symptoms. With benzodiazepines tapering slowly is really the best option. It has the harshest withdrawal symptoms when stopped cold-turkey. Valium or Klonopin for slow withdrawal.

DXM helps with dopamine downregulation related withdrawal symptoms and NMDA antagonism for general pain. Kratom to help with serotonin downregulation and black hole depression.

Take magnesium supplements, because amphetamines are known to deplete magnesium and most people are deficient anyway. Magnesium helps with anxiety, pain through NMDA neuromodulation.

Propranolol for adrenergic symptoms like sweating, heart rate, blood pressure etc.

Buspirone, a very light weight anti-anxiety drug can help because it is a serotonin 5-HT1A receptor partial agonist. 5-HT1A is responsible for modulating all other serotonin receptors and has been shown to increase dopamine as well. 5-HT1A desensitization is linked to increased serotonin from all sources and is believe to be the mechanism behind SSRIs and why they take weeks to work (time to desensitize the 5-HT1A receptor). The autoreceptors must first densensitize before the concentration of extracellular serotonin in the synapse can become elevated.

Finally, outdoor exercise.

Dextromethorphan Hbr (aka your good old Robotripping). I prefer the cough gels. Of ALL the psychedelics and dissociatives I've tried, this legal substance available at every corner drug store has produced some of the most spectacular trips I've ever had (I'm talking doses around 975mg - only recommended for experienced users).

Be advised it comes in basically 2 forms: DXM Hbr (Hydrobromide) or DXM Polistirex. The mail difference is with the Polistirex the mantra is "half as strong/twice as long". So it depends on what you're going for - If you're looking for a strong psychedelic experience the obvious choice is the Hbr version. The Poli would be more suitable if you just wanted a really nice body buzz and cool headspace and be able to function all day.

And yea, no worries on a drug test for 2 reasons: 1) They don't test for it in the first place, and 2) it's LEGAL so even if it did show up on a drug test just tell em you had a fucking cold or something - lol

I also suffer from migraines and really struggled during treatment.


I found my migraines were at their worse at the beginning of new medication (estrogen, progesterone, gonadotropins... didn't matter, they all sucked), but lessened after the first week. Hopefully this will be the case for you, too. My RE said Sumatriptan (Imitrex) is safe to take during treatment and pregnancy if this is a medication that helps you. My PCP recommended daily magnesium supplements (400mg), which I do believe reduced the frequency of my migraines. I also bought a headache hat so I could at least be mobile during migraines. I loved it so much I bought a second.

u/Tupley_ 路 2 pointsr/braincancer

Thank you so much for responding!!! I really appreciate it! And I'm glad to hear that you did very well immediately after your surgery.

So, just to sum up:

  • In the hospital: nice pillows, soft sweaters, earbuds and music, medication tracker sheet, lattes and other comfort food? Were there foods that you would strongly recommend against?
  • At home: wedge shaped pillow, bendy straws, elastogel ice helmet (or some kind of helmet for migraines), scarves and hats? Thank you for the ice helmet tip, I think I will buy the Headache Hat (the Elastogel ice helmet is not sold in my country). Are there any other products that you think would be helpful? Any specific type of painkillers? Any house/furniture setup that might be helpful (i.e. would an angled armchair be useful?)
  • Other important things: being silly, enthusiastic and cheering her up if needed

    And can I ask, if you don't mind, what are the headaches and cognitive stuff you dealt with that prevented you from going back to work? Do you feel the quality of your life has drastically suffered? If you were in this situation (a bit older, with children in their early 20s, very little family/social support), what long-term advice would you give to your kid?

This sucks. So fucking much. I鈥檒l tell you that I know that list, except for Kratom.

u/Lysmerry 路 2 pointsr/cfs

Sure I'm happy to answer! I'm sorry you got it so young. Also that you fought so hard to keep on performing- that must have been really baffling and upsetting. I was lucky in that I knew what I had almost immediately due to my dad having something similar. I think it's healthy that we're retaining muscle tone, but may be causing symptoms because of its metabolic needs. Though I always take CFS theories with a grain of salt, Dr. Myhill's work has corresponded the best with my own experience- you can see her writing on what she believes are the metabolic causes of CFS: http://www.drmyhill.co.uk/wiki/CFS_-_The_Central_Cause:_Mitochondrial_Failure


As for the diagnosis, it depends what you mean by official. My main MD agrees and has written down that I have it, but I don't have any special paperwork. I basically talked it out with my doctor. I was concerned I had it because I was very tired and had intense PEM, and my father has similar issues so I knew about it. My doctor ran many many tests for alternatives, all that I personally researched and requested, and they came back negative. Basic blood tests, sleep apnea, thyroid, lyme disease, STDs, hormones and later an MRI which ruled out Lupus and MS. I sort of diagnosed myself? My doctor was a General Practitioner, not a specialist. He is a very intelligent man, but he let me decide for myself and agreed with me that it was most likely I had CFS. I've done most of my own research and decided what action to take on my own, because very few MDs know much if anything about CFS. However, I have been believed for the most part. I think a Neurologist would be more trusted than an GP for an 'official' diagnosis, but there are so many symptoms and potential causes that I feel more comfortable with a GP.

Where do you live? I live the USA and getting disability is very challenging, usually relying on a very specific test.

I've had CFS for three years. I also had a brief spell six years ago that lasted 3 months. It started with what I believe was Mono (it showed up on a test that I had had it). However that ended. My current bout came after a very serious four month depressive episode (the 3rd in my life) but no physical illness.

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions feel free to ask. I haven't had any tests in a while, but will try a few just in case. I suddenly stopped being able to drink without feeling odd, so I'm going to get my liver checked, and also check for H.Pylori, a very common bacteria, because I've become more interested in the "2nd nervous system" located in the gut.

I really recommend ginger for nausea (ginger ale or ginger beer with real ginger is great, I also use pills and chews). It's the only thing that has actually helped me. I don't get headaches much, but I have this silly thing called a 'headache hat' and I love it.

Uh, not for most allergies. For most people, seasonal allergies can be controlled with over-the-counter medicine, like Zyrtec (cetirizine). I can buy a year-long supply of that (365 tablets) for $15.

Other allergies, like most food allergies, don't need constant medication to treat. The cost there is in the emergency drugs, which (hopefully) don't have to be used in most cases because you'd avoid whatever food it is that makes you react.

Depends entirely on the person. If you're in decent health and don't have high recurring medical costs (most physically-active younger people don't) then you're probably better off, tax-wise and healthcare-wise, in the US.

u/Ag-hemiptera 路 1 pointr/roaches

You'll need a large plastic bin, egg crates or toilet paper/paper towel rolls for the roaches to cling to, and a heating pad that doesn't have auto shutoff (I buy mine through amazon, if you get one locally be aware that the ones without auto shutoff from this brand have a switch not a button). The heating pad is sort of optional--the roaches won't breed as quickly but they won't die without the heat if you can't find one. You'll also need a screened vent at the top for air exchange.

For the screen, I used hot glue and regular (vinyl?) window screening. If you don't have a hot glue gun a silicone adhesive would probably also work. If your bin is soft plastic, you can cut through the top with a razor knife. However, if your bin is a harder plastic like the sterilite gasket bins, you might want to use a rotary tool to prevent cracking.

If you're concerned about escapes, get a sterilite gasket bin, add a vaseline barrier around the top of the bin to prevent escapes, and use metal screening.

I also recommend a temperature/humidity meter like this one. You can get them really cheap on ebay if you don't mind the temp being in Celsius. You'll find a lot of this style at similar prices from Chinese vendors. If you get another one, double check to see if it includes the lithium battery before you buy it.

As for the roaches, I got my original colony cheap from eBay. You can also find them on Craigslist or the Allpet roach forum sometimes. Or if you're an Ovogram member people will offer small nymphs for free from time to time.

I has 3 heating settings... when I put it on medium and wrap a towel around the cooking pot, my yogurt stays about 105 degrees F. Placing a cutting board under helps send heat to your fermentation vessel.

It may not help you now but this stuff helps SO much if you have chafed, it will help soothe it. It does also help prevent chafing, although I've never used it on a run only in regular everyday life with dresses and such.

My hooded eyes look awful with eyeliner applied above upper lashes/below lower lashes as is conventional, so I always/only use eyeliner on my waterline. To prevent raccoon eyes later in they day, here's the tips and tricks I've cultivated over the years:

  1. Aim for the part closest to the lashes/avoiding the inner part closest to the eye, because the moisture from your eye can make it run. I use a pencil or pencil-like liner, but cone-shaped kohl kajal sticks are tailor made for this; you just have to stick it between your closed lids and rub back and forth, perfect if you're a little eye-squeamish.
  2. Using a small firm brush (I use a $1 elf concealer brush, works great), set in place using a similarly-colored eyeshadow or, even better, brow powder. I use dark brown eyeliner instead of black, so I use the one from my brow kit (Milani Brow Fix, can even double as a contour/highlight palette; a true triple-threat). I've found that brow powder has much less fall-out, I suppose from the matte-ness and staying power.
  3. Stamp loose (face) powder right up under the lower lash line. I've found this is the best defense against late-in-day smearing/smudging/tranfer! I also brush it on my brow bone, because my hooded eyes/curly lashes will paint little mascara lines on my brow bone without it. I don't wear often eyeshadow, so I'm not 100% sure if it's compatible with that; might mattify shiny/shimmery ones.

    Not eyeliner-related: Using chafing gel for primer. Cheap and effective

You might want to look into CBD: it's the more "medicinal" part of marijuana that is used to treat pain, but it's non-psychoactive and legal in many more places than something containing THC (THC primarily being the psychoactive part. In other words, it puts the fun in weed ;) .) It's also a lot easier to order CBD-containing products without worrying about them getting confiscated in the mail (and if they did, at most you'd probably just get a letter from the carrier explaining that they're confiscating your package. Something like that is too small for them to bother prosecuting, but I doubt it'd even be confiscated in the first place.)

You might also take a hard look at your sleeping arrangement to see if your bed isn't screwing with your posture while you sleep. Beds kinda wear out after about ten years, so you may not be getting great back support which can definitely leads to some really annoying back pain issues. I know mattresses are expensive, but there are also things like memory-foam mattress toppers and that sort of thing, and they're much more reasonably priced. It may not be a total solution, but it might help.

Not being a doctor I'm a little hesitant to offer too many other suggestions, but the "burning" sounds like it might be chafing. A dry lubricant like Gold Bond powder might help, and they also make chafing ointments for cyclists that would probably work really well. In fact I just remembered that Monistat of all people make a chafing (here's an Amazon link, but I'd imagine it's available at a lot of regular grocery/drug stores too.) They also make chafing ointment "sticks" that look just like a stick of deodorant, which could be handy for travel or keeping in your work locker or something. At any rate, most of the anti-chafing stuff works well and it's cheap (in the $10-$12 range), so I think it's worth a shot. You'll probably have to get a little creative when it comes to figuring out how to apply it back there though ;) .

The numbness and tingling is often nerve-related and you'd be better off asking an actual doctor (ie, not me) about it. That's the part I'd be most concerned about, although I'm sure there are ways to minimize or get rid of it completely. If you have a Planned Parenthood in the general area (that provides LGBT services), that would be my first suggestion: they're very helpful and absolutely non-judgemental and they have actual doctors with medical degrees that know a hell of a lot more about anatomy than a therapist will. That's not to knock therapists, there are a lot of great ones out there...but they're not medical doctors (as far as anatomy goes), so I'd talk to an MD instead. If you go to PP's website you can type in your ZIP code or state (here's Illinois for you :) ) and it'll pull up all the clinics nearby, as well as the services they offer. Even if the closest clinic doesn't offer LGBT services per say, give them a call anyway because I suspect they'd be more than willing to help out.

Have you tried D-Mannose? It may not work if it's not a UTI, and I would recommend checking with your doctor before using it, but I used to have awful chronic UTIs I didn't feel like ever went away and it was a miracle. Check out the reviews on Amazon. FYI the powder works better.

u/no1particular 路 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

If you are peeing blood clots, I would suggest getting medical attention immediately. Putting it off will only cost you more, as the worse it gets the more your kidneys will suffer, and kidney intervention is much more expensive than an office visit + antibiotics.

HOWEVER, for future reference, there is a supplement called D-Mannose which is an excellent cure/preventative for UTI's (it is essentially a highly concentrated version of what you find in cranberry juice) https://www.amazon.com/Now-Foods-D-Mannose-Powder-3-Ounce/dp/B000HCMK90/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1467939990&sr=8-1&keywords=d-mannose, and only costs about $15 . Now, being in the healthcare field, I am not what you would consider a 100% Naturalist in terms of medicine, but I have used it myself and have found it to work successfully on beginning-mid stage UTI's. There is evidence-based research that supports its use, and more and more it is looking like a viable alternative to antibiotics.

EDIT: fixed some typos

u/GlobbyDoodle 路 1 pointr/AskDocs

I randomly came across your post and thought I'd comment. You might try D-Mannose - which you can buy at Sprouts or Amazon. I had a UTI for months and no antibiotics helped!

u/focksandhound 路 1 pointr/sex

I'm in a long distance relationship. So when we see each other for the few days we tend to get pretty busy. I used to get UTIs every time and one time I got a kidney infection. UNTIL I discovered this stuff called d-mannose (http://www.amazon.com/Now-Foods-D-Mannose-Powder-3-Ounce/dp/B000HCMK90). You can mix it with water and use it to flush out your bladder and urinary tract. Read the comments on the amazon link for instructions on how to use it. Total lifesaver, haven't had a UTI since I started using it. Cranberry pills and juice did nothing for me.

Hi! I got reoccurring UTIs for years and then got this D Mannose . I take it any time I feel one coming and it knocks it out almost immediately. It works on UTIs caused by e-coli.

Allergies gave me bronchitis a few years ago thanks to the postnasal drip (drainage) I experience while I was sleeping. I now rinse my sinuses 1-2 times daily with the sinus rinse I've shared.

It might be a bigger issue than just taking a couple Sudafed would fix. Like a sinus infection or just deep congestion or some type of irritation that might cause fluid buildup. I get that floaty feeling when I have sinus issues, like from allergies or pressure changes from flying and whatnot. Might look at doing a saline nasal rinses (like this kind of thing) to try and clear it out. My nose itself isn't even clogged right now, but I can feel some type of congestion or fluid in my ear canal area and the associated floaty feeling. I have also noticed this sensation after heavy drinking sometimes, as you mentioned. I think it likely is a sinus thing.

u/terminal_veracity 路 1 pointr/SleepApnea

Talk with your sleep doc about:

  • fluticasone: this is the generic for Flonase. You could even try out Flonase on your own as it over-the-counter now. Oddly though, it's a lot cheaper in the prescription, generic form.

  • azelastine: this is Rx only. It's pretty quick at clearing out the sinuses but it tastes awful when inhaled too deeply.

  • getting tested for allergies. The blood tests are accurate and simple, but expensive if not covered by insurance. The IgE test can at least tell you what to specifically avoid like cats, dogs, and certain plants. And the "food profile" can do a similar thing for foods. This is a lot more direct than just randomly stopping dairy/wheat/gluten or whatever is the villain of the month.

    Also, it may sound nasty at first, but try using a nasal rinse. This kit is excellent:

My wife and I use this bottle. It is the best at getting a good amount of liquid up inside. The only downside is no backflow blocker. You will learn to squeeze while pulling it away from your ass. The tip is tapered and fits nicely against the hole without needing to push it inside. The water pressure this thing can make will overcome your muscles as long as you line up your hole with its hole. Also we generally do this 15-20m before sex and play around in other ways for a bit before getting into it. EDIT: DO NOT USE THE SOLUTION IN THE BOX. Throw it away you only want the bottle. You can buy this at Walmart.

Ginger pills.

To me, they seem to work. Now, I'm not sure if they work because I think they work or because they actually do something. In any case, it helps to reduce my motion sickness and that's what's important to me.

u/yuris 路 1 pointr/flying

When I was doing my training, I used to get motion sickness during steep turns (after a few turns). I ended up buying Sea Bands (http://www.amazon.com/Sea-Band-Wristband-Color-Vary-1-Pair/dp/B001F731N0/) for myself, as well as some generic ginger pills from Whole Foods and it did help me. It's quite possible it was a placebo effect, I won't deny it, but I also don't care, since it helped me get over the motion sickness (I no longer wear them :)

I do keep them in my bag and give them to passengers who are squirmish, and they seem to like it as well. I don't know if I'd spend $90 as per the previous suggestion, but these are $6, so...

It might, but not a lot yet. Hardware IPD adjustment is the most noticeable help, plus general optimizations that can help keep FPS consistent or even higher like foveated rendering, but Index doesn't have all of that tech, as well as brute force specs like refresh rate, but that might be a year or two away in consumer devices. Weight and format also influence it. I remember reading about this really crazy tech that would send electric signals to your brain to simulate the feeling of movement. Individual game optimizations can also help.

My 76 yr old mom will say things to me like "Do you use a washcloth? If not, here's how you wipe it on your face..." HAHA. : ) And def find a new derm who specializes in acne, and one who is NOT condescending. I'll suffer through it if the professional is top notch / specialist but otherwise, no way. The last person I need to judge me is my doctor!!

So glad to hear your skin is looking better, and it goes go to show you that you respond well to antibiotics. Re: the doxy, def check out food suggestions food. Directions usually say to not eat it with food but I'd eat it with food b/c it will line your stomach. Also says to avoid dairy but I think having a little protein (cheese in your case) would help cushion it (calcium slows absorbtion but only slightly). Probiotics could help you as well.

It dries pretty quickly, so I put neosporin CREAM on top of it. (Repeat: neosporin CREAM not the ointment)
Also this stuff works well too:

Also the ordinary niacinimide has helped my pores a lot.

You should always spot test new products to make sure they work for you.

A lot of people have had success with the oridinary鈥檚 salicylic acid, but it gave me chemical burns. So be careful.

It does look like rosacea could partially be what鈥檚 going on (not a doctor, and you should see one since rosacea can progress to be quite serious). If it is rosacea, in my experience you鈥檙e going to need something specific for it. And nothing in your current regimen will likely treat it.

Azelaic acid and metronidazole are two topical drugs commonly used.

  • This paper from 2003 found that azelaic acid gel, like Finacea, twice per day was more effective than metronidazole. Note that Finacea/azelaic gel is prescription only and expensive, in the US at least

  • This paper found that azelaic acid cream, like Melazepam, was equally effective as topical metronidazole, with higher satisfaction.

  • For my own skin, metronidazole cream seems to be much more effective than azelaic acid cream (Melazepam), and its more cosmetically elegant. But I wouldn鈥檛 put too much importance on my personal results.

    So, azelaic acid might be a good place to start; doubly so since you don鈥檛 need a prescription and it is assumed to be safe during pregnancy. And there鈥檚 good evidence for azelaic acid on acne, as well.

This sunscreen (Anessa UV Milk Milk) with newer filters that has no white cast. The SPF 50 version left a whitecast on my NC45 skin. It has great protection, very photostable filters and no filters that cause reef damage/potential hormone disruption. I wear it everyday.

Melazepam, the only product that has helped clear up my melasma! I've tried shark sauce and niacinamide which didn't do much. Studies have shown products with 20% Azelaic Acid work similarly to those with 4% HQ, without the scary side effects.

My daughter had a patch on her elbow that nothing helped. I started using aveeno eczema creme and Queen Helene Cocoa butter mixed together. It went from 2 months of weepy and painful to finally starting to heal. I put this mix on her 3-4 times a day after I would wash the area with a mild soap. At night I add a few drops of food grade Grape seed oil to the mix for added moisture. Every couple of days I'd lightly exfoliate it to get the dead skin off.

You look like you have some healing but some build up of dead skin too. It is hard to tell. Since the eczema is happening on your hands you may need to make a small bottle of the mix then carry it with you. Apply liberally every time you was and dry your hands. Please read all ingredients for any previously known allergies 1st. Also patch test all the products individually, and then mixed together. Do this in an area that does not have an eczema breakout on it. While none of these products tend toward allergies; we are eczema patients and we seem to have a higher likelihood of random allergies.

(PART 1) I couldn鈥檛 fix my painful dehydrated skin until i incorporated urea and lanolin, and regular use of petrolatum into my skin care. But idk how you feel about those... It took me a good year or year and a half to fix my dehydrated skin from overexfoliation.

Also, putting on occlusives right away after you wash and put on humectants is super important. Otherwise it can dry you out more.

So what I do is use a very gentle, non-foaming cleanser (I use LRP Gentle Hydrating) and while my face is still wet, put on all my hydrating toners and serums. Then go into lotions and creams RIGHT AWAY. You can watch Dr. Dray on YouTube who describes why this works.

When my skin was SO full of pain, from extremely dry, tight skin and irritated acne-like cysts everywhere, the only thing that didn鈥檛 hurt like a mf was Vanicream. It took me hundreds of dollars and tons of trial and error and babying my skin to get it back to normal. Now I can use AHA, azelaic acid, vitamin c, and even tretinoin and hydroquinone without a problem!!!

It took me hundreds of dollars and tons of trial and error and babying my skin to get it back to normal. Now I can use AHA, vitamin c, and even tretinoin and hydroquinone without a problem!!!聽

No one or two products fixed my dehydrated skin. It took a TON of research over the years learning which ingredients were the most healing, moisturizing, how they work, etc.. And an entire routine around hydrating and moisturizing as much as possible.聽

And i know everyone raves about the cosrx snail essence, but it didn鈥檛 do shit when my skin was that dehydrated. But there IS some evidence of snail healing damaged skin. The point is to put in as much healing and soothing ingredients into your routine as much as possible.聽

I always make sure to include ingredients like: panthenol (derivative of vitamin b5), allantoin, urea, hualuronic acid, glycerin, aloe, colloidal oatmeal, ceramides (huge!!!),聽niacinamide (especially useful for brightening and healing your skin), petroleum (there is NOTHING out there that reduces transepidermal water loss like petroleum can. I tried to be all ~natural is better~ for a while, but realized it wasn't doing anything to help fix my skin), etc.

And not just adding these helped fix my skin, but leaving things out was a HUGE step in finally letting my skin heal. I avoid these like the plague: fragrance, natural (essential oils) or synthetic, alcohol anywhere other than sunscreen, sodium lauryl sulfate (sodium LAURETH sulfate is the gentler one, but I avoid that for my face too anyways. Any surfectants can be aided to be milder by adding cocamidopropyl betaine), all acids until my skin could handle them (interestingly enough, vitamin c serum actually helped my skin hold more water instead of hurting me), and things that I know irritate my skin.

Things that were/are biggest contributors of keeping my skin moist and hydrated, in no particular order:

Thayers Unscented Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel - the first thing that goes on my skin after washing. It's just water, aloe, glycerin and witch hazel. It's so simple but idk why my skin likes it so much, lol. It's HG for me.

Hadalabo Premium Lotion - HG, must have. ALWAYS put occlusives on top, do not wait for it to dry. Hyaluronic acids, urea, algae. This is my one non-negotiable skin care item.

Aveeno Eczema Therapy Cream - Super moisturizing. Colloidal oatmeal, glycerin, panthenol, petrolatum, a ceramide, dimethicone. (Also, people demonize silicones, but they are not bad ingredients. They are actually really helpful in keeping in moisture, providing slip, and smooth feel for skin and hair. And no, they don't prevent other things from reaching the skin.) And Aveeno Eczema Therapy Night Time Balm for something heavier but has same ingredients. You can use both.

And of course, CeraVe Moisturizing Cream - ceramides, cholesterol, must have skin-identical lipids that dehydrated skin lacks, hyaluronic acid, petrolatum, dimethicone. This by itself didn't help a whole lot, but with an army of all the different gentle, soothing things, it helped tremendously.

CeraVe PM- same as the cream, but much lighter and has 4% niacinamide I believe. Niacinamide has been key to helping my dry-ass skin. It does SO many things. I DIY 6% niacinamide and 5% n-acetyl glucosamine to boost the niacinamide even further. But you can find this ingredient in loads of AB things and Olay products. Make sure the Olay stuff is fragrance-free if you get them. I like the Olay Anti-Aging Face Cream a lot. You can use the CeraVe lotion if you for some reason can't tolerate niacinamide, but want something lighter than the cream.

Aquaphor Healing Ointment - SLUG LIFE is a MUST if you have dehydrated skin. You can use Cerave healing ointment too, but it's redundant if you use the cream or lotion. It's not as occlusive as aquaphor. Aquaphor isn't just a more pricier Vaseline as people suggest. It does have white petrolatum that is oh-so helpful, it also has healing ingredients like panthenol and bisobolol, and also lanolin alcohol and glycerin for humectants. I put on a THICK layer of this when I go to bed.

If you wanna go a step further and go super saiyan, and you aren't sensitive to lanolin, you can use Lasinoh Lanolin before or after Aquaphor. I can't stand the smell of lanolin, but this one is medical-grade and doesn't have a smell. Lanolin is SUPER helpful because of it's crazy humectant properties but it also acts as an occlusive.

For just uber Panthenol healing, you can get something that stars Panthenol as the main star ingredient, like DML Forte Cream or Timeless Skin Care Vitamin B5 Serum. I don't use the cream anymore, but I do still use the serum. It looks expensive, but if you get the refill sale, it's about $7/oz (idk what country you live in, but this is the price for me in the U.S.). I HIGHLY recommend their vitamin c, e, ferulic acid serum as well when your skin can handle it. It works out to about $8 an ounce if you get it during refill sale. It stays good for a while in the fridge. I wrap it in foil and transfer it to a 1 oz dropper bottle for using it in my bathroom. It gives glow to your skin like NOTHING ELSE, and boosts your sunscreen (the antioxidants slow the degradation of sunscreen ingredients, giving a huge boost to your sunscreen) and has helped me with water retention. If you can't get it on refill sale, use the HotandFlashy (I also recommend her Youtube channel) code hf5off to get $5 off. It's a forever coupon code.

which works well, but I have to keep using it :(

u/colliwag 路 1 pointr/BabyBumps

Yeah, I've had itchy skin since 2nd trimester. :( The thing that's helped the most is using Aveeno eczema lotion twice daily. I think it might be the oatmeal in it that helps? Any other lotion I've tried does nothing.

Whatever you decide to try, GOOD LUCK! Itchy skin is so annoying to deal with.

u/sewsewsewyourboat 路 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

that would be the colloidal oat in it. Rosacea is often treated with colloidal oat, perhaps that is what you have. First Aid Beauty has it, but only at 0.5% concentration, whereas Tatcha has it at 3%. This Aveeno one has 1%. I can't seem to find something with as high of a percentage, though.

Some other ingredients that might help, though, are aloe, chamomile extract, licorice extract, and ceramides.

do keep in mind that 3% might be overkill and even a small percentage may help; don't feel bummed out about that. sometimes it's a total gimmick to add more of something when it's not necessary to treat the specific skin problem.

u/hachi6 路 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I've got eczema on my hands and the only things that have helped (besides steroids) is drinking a TON of water, and keeping my hands ultra mosterized. I really like Aveeno's Eczema Therapy Moisterizing Cream. I keep it in my purse and put it on four or five times a day. It's especially important to put some sort of moisterizer on after you get out of the shower or wash your hands. Another thing that helped was switching to gentle cleansers, like CeraVe, from actual soap. I also switched my laundry detergent and dryer sheets to dye and scent free ones. Good luck!

It worked for me for a long time. Worth giving it a go. In the end the best advice is to remain positive. It cheesy I know, but I know how you feel. I have a chewed up shoulder which is in constant pain and will likely require surgery, which will be a huge pain. My knees are screwed up also. I have asthma, allergies, ezcema and depression. Everyone has to deal with hardship one way or another. It's up to you to look after it and find any way possible to fix it.

Sometimes I'll feel like giving up. But then you realise that there's so much interesting things in the world that I know I can't. Hopefully you'll get better.

You are incredibly sweet! For morning sickness, it really depends. Nausea can be triggered by so many things (as I'm sure you know, since you've been pregnant before) but there seems to be a general consensus about ginger-related things. Preggi-Pops and Tummydrops were my favorites.

Honestly, I just liked having things that made me feel refreshed. A humidifier/diffuser with a few essential oils would be awesome for aromatherapy - a little pricey but she can use it for anything.

If she's mentioned ANYTHING that has helped her with morning sickness, see if you can transform that into a gift. For example, having a cool cloth on my face and neck helped so I purchased one of those hot/cold eye masks from Walgreens.

Good luck and let me know if any of those suggestions help. :)

u/AJBats 路 1 pointr/oculus

To provide an alternate tip, dramamine didn't work for me, and the drowsey side effect is quite strong. What I use instead is this and this.

A warning though the ginger one is quite spicy. These two drops helped me settle my stomach as my VR legs developed. It also helped me "reset" my VR association after I've had a nauseous experience. As others have said if you have a bad time even so much as the smell of the HMD will set you off. In those cases I would pop a few drops and play something extremely passive that I know shouldn't cause nausea. I'm at a point now where I'm able to play classic Doom in VR, a game that wasn't even designed for VR.

I was already a nervous thrower upper my whole life. So morning sickness and stress really made me sicker than I think I would have been normally.

Sometimes if my husband would rub my back and tell me it was going to be okay. I would calm down and not not throw up or only throw up once.

What helped the MOST was the sick bags from Amazon that I could carry every where and reduced the smell. My husband hates vomit and he could sit next to me and not smell anything. I have literally throw up pretty discreetly all kinds of places. Mostly notably at the airport, at the gate and wait by the bathroom for my husband to get out.

u/khamir-ubitch 路 1 pointr/dxm

A few tips:

First off, make sure the stuff you have ONLY has DXM as an active ingredient. A lot of the "tussins" come with other stuff in it. Namely "guaifenesin". I made the mistake of not realizing this and got "robo rash" and severe itching. Both can be avoided by making sure the stuff you have ONLY has DXM.

I'd suggest going for the higher end of the first plateau (the calculator I used) for a first trip because a dissociative "high" is very different from alcohol, marijuana or opiods. You'll want to get a feel for it and you'll be sedated for some time, it lasts for hours from onset to peak and back down. Once you get how it feels, aim for a higher plateau. Something that is rarely mentioned is that your libido will be affected the higher the plateau.

Have some good music queued up. Very cool to listen to music while robo-trippin'

Liquid DXM has some alcohol in it. You'll feel it in addition to the effects of the DXM.

Be sure to do it on a nearly empty stomach so you have a "baseline". I've found that a completely empty stomach will prevent any effects. I've always had better luck with just a bit of food (half a sandwich, a few cookies, etc...) in my stomach.

For the future, I recommend these these. Nothing but DXM in a gelcap. No extra sugar, no guaifenesin, just good ol' DXM. No need to choke down that nasty syrup. That cherry aftertaste is quite un-appealing. I stopped having that sick/queasy feeling in my stomach I'd get from drinking the liquid.

Good luck, be careful and please let someone who can get to you physically know that way if shit goes south, you have an out. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

Usually 1200mgs puts me on my ass for a good 8-10 hours and feels insanely dream like and nostalgic at the same time, it's hard to really explain.

Look at the "Active Ingredients" part of the label, that's what you want to see. You should buy it locally because they are overpriced AF from Amazon.

u/ISU-152 路 1 pointr/dxm

It's hit or miss for me. I'm 18 and they usually just ask if I'm 18 and I say yeah and end of story. Sometimes tho usually if they're older they'll say "i need to see ID sir" especially if I buy the entire stock of dxm. Honestly I'd just try and buy it and if they ask for ID just say you forgot your wallet or something. You could also buy some on amazon and ship it to a amazon locker.(no ID needed and it's automatic so there isn't someone who hands you your package.)That's how I did it when I was 16,17 Robafen Cough Liquidgels Dextromethorphan HBr, USP 15mg, 20 Liquidgels (3 Packs) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CSF8070/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_wYcNAb81G8XMA

Something like this might help you out if you're ever unsure. They have caps for different styles.

u/queer_bird_sounds 路 1 pointr/ADHD

You can get pill bottles that tell you how long it's been since you've last taken medication. You can also buy just the caps at CVS, which is what I did. They're a lifesaver.

u/voiceofnight 路 1 pointr/ADHD

I have an alarm that goes off an hour before I'm supposed to be up for the day so I can take my meds and wake with them working. Most of the time, I remember if I took them when the alarm went off. But a few times I had to play the 'do I feel like my meds are working' game. So I bought these and its come in handy a lot http://www.amazon.com/Timer-Caps-Large-Vials-Easy-/dp/B00ECK8KFG/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1459370759&sr=8-1&keywords=timer+caps

You could also try taking your meds with you whenever you leave the house, putting your meds in bottles with timer lids so you will be able to see when it was last opened, and/or getting something to lock them up in (a lock box with a good lock, or putting a lock on a cabinet or drawer to keep them in). Also, it might help you feel less anxious about leaving the house if you have a way to lock up anything particularly valuable (jewelry, important documents, etc.), confidential, or potentially embarrassing (like sex toys).

Wearing a Headache Hat right now. I'm going to buy another one next month, and am also entertaining the idea of a third. I know you can buy extra ice squares, but I'm not going to want to take them out and put them back in when I have a migraine.

Thanks for sharing! I just received this ice pack strap thing that didn't work for me very well. I need it to sit right in the crook of my neck below my skull and it didn't do that.
I might try the migraine cap or The Original Headache Hat
Or this one: Elasto-Gel Cranial Cap Not sure why the guy's shirt is off, but I like that it also covers the neck.

u/taswind 路 1 pointr/migraine

Dunno which one is best, but there are a bunch of "migraine hats" available... Would let you "wear" your icepacks

u/compulsive_evolution 路 1 pointr/migraine

I have The Headache Hat that my boyfriend refers to as, "The Turban of Pain." It's amazing and I don't know how I've lived with migraines for so long without it.

This is also in the realm of drugs, but more of a natural, or a controversial, remedy depending on how you look at it. I sniff tobacco, called "snuff" or what South American cultures call rap茅 (pronounced, ra-pAY). This is helpful when I get a headache near my eyes or in my sinus areas. It's completely stopped migraines from developing. I can answer some questions if you're curious about it.

I also use a mouth guard at night that I had made at my dentist. It helps protect the nerves in my teeth/face from getting irritated when I grind my teeth. I don't sleep without it.

Rocky Mountain Oil company has a Migraine Support blend that I've found works better than other essential oil companies/MLM's. You can either get the one linked there and dilute 20-30 drops of it with fractionated coconut oil in a glass roller bottle (make sure it has a metal roller - plastic will dilute in the oils), or purchase the roller they sell for $15.

u/rn8650 路 1 pointr/leaves

I just bought a "headache hat" on Amazon that works really well for me. Basically a headband full of tiny ice packs. I just recently realized that cold/ice therapy works really well to curb my headaches. If you don't want to spend the 40$ just a ziplock bag with some ice cubes works pretty well too.

After having frequent migraine headaches for a while, I bought a couple of freezer-pack headbands.

One epiphany later, I found they also work great for staying cool in VR (not appearance-wise), but it's a bit more complicated to put the headset on-top of the headband.

Also, I find the added forehead support helps to take weight off of my dainty face.

Here's a link to one I bought.

The stitching is coming apart after almost two years (not bad), but there are a few others for sale.

u/x7q 路 1 pointr/chicago

Buy some allergy medicine? I recommend cetirizine hydrochloride, which is Zyrtec, but get the generic from Amazon.

The other two are Benadryl and Claritin, but those seem to cause drowsiness. Try em all, they're pretty cheap.

u/baristahipster 路 1 pointr/Dallas

They're also on Amazon for about $15 for a year's supply.

u/pyrrhotechnologies 路 1 pointr/Asthma

Yes I have taken Zyrtec daily for the last 15+ years. Started with actual Zyrtec, then switched to generic Allertec from Costo about 6 years ago and then switched to generic GoodSense about a year ago: https://smile.amazon.com/GoodSense-Allergy-Cetirizine-Tablets-Count/dp/B00G9E1GYA/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=zyrtec&qid=1557496795&s=gateway&sr=8-8&th=1

I have not tried wiping cat down with a damp washcloth. Is this something I should do daily?

GoodSense All Day Allergy which appears to be 10 mg antihistamine

u/007chill 路 1 pointr/lincoln

I been using these for the past couple years (same active ingredient as Zyrtec). I think adding Flonase might be what I need.

http://www.amazon.com/Good-Sense-Cetirizine-Tablets-Count/dp/B00G9E1GYA

Although I remembered the price wrong, its $16 now. I looked it up and I paid $11 a year ago.

With 365 tablets it is more (much more) than I'll use before it expires (3 year expiration), but (at the time) it was cheaper than any of the other sizes on Amazon or locally.

There are other generics too, Wal-Mart has them and I'm sure CVS/Walgreens does as well. What you're looking for is "Cetirizine hydrochloride" (aka Cetirizine HCL, aka generic Zyrtec) and the regular adult dose is 10mg. Most I've seen come in 10mg, some come in 5mg - which is fine, you'll likely just have to take two.

u/Lisemarie87 路 1 pointr/Portland

I buy these on Amazon. 365 zyrtec for $16.

This is what I did, and it worked fine:

http://www.patstarace.com/samsung-gear-vr-2015-retail-mod-for-note-4.html

Basically just gotta trim out the corners and make sure not to mess up those pegs. I used my dremel but you could probably use a hacksaw or something with patience.

The overheating...isn't good. But I bought some gel packs and they've worked wonders. I keep them in the refrigerator instead of the freezer because I'm afraid of condensation. My longest session so far has been 30-40 minutes with no overheating.

https://smile.amazon.com/Reusable-Packs-Overheating-Relief-IceWraps/dp/B00ZVI485Y/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1466731694&sr=8-1&keywords=3+x+5+gel+pack

Check out the reviews, everyone is using these things. There's other mods you can do like adding a case fan but I really didn't want to go through all that.

u/HoustonVR 路 1 pointr/GearVR

Which phone are you using with the GearVR? The S7 series manage heat much better and I can easily watch a full length film without overheating. On my Note 4, I use a pair of pony-tail holders to hold one of these to the back of the phone (and run without the dust-cover).

Get something like this.

I've used these both frozen and room temperature. When frozen, I wrap a single paper towel around it in case of condensation. When they're at room temperature, they don't work as well, but still provide a sort of heat sink that wicks away heat from the phone instead of it being insulated.

I personally prefer to use oblate bags.

I put about 4 grams in each and down them kind of like raw oysters. It's not for everyone but works better than T&W for me.

Have her pull it out ASAP. She should drink lots of water so she urinates a lot & flushes out the area. If she can get some of this stuff (any brand, you can find @ health food stores), it's inexpensive & very good for preventing UTIs.

If it was inside her for a matter of 12 hours or so, she is probably fine as long as she gets it out soon.

u/SKULLJR 路 0 pointsr/Vive

Pick up some of these.

https://www.amazon.com/Sea-Band-Wristband-Color-Vary-1-Pair/dp/B001F731N0?th=1

Makes a huge difference for me. It also helps when I ride in planes, so they are pretty awesome. I get some motion sickness in cars and planes and these have totally stopped that.

u/abowlofcereal 路 0 pointsr/Lyft

I'm passing on this NYE, as well. I'd much rather be with my friends that night.

It's a little late to recommend vomit bags, but CareBags are among the best: they have a draw string to close and keep the stench out and an absorption pad built in.

Also, if you're taking care of drunks- while it might not get you any additional tips- water and something for them to munch might help them stay somewhat coherent.

u/dori_88 路 0 pointsr/opiates

It's likely infected or something if it's causing you that much trouble. Go to the dentist. Be upfront about your abuse history. Tell them you do except to be treated humanely and have a plan to take painkillers as prescribed. For instance, with my spinal surgery back in September, I used these timer caps, to take my meds as prescribed. It helped a lot.
