Worst Atopic Dermatitis

Hi, Ive consulted a doctor lately regarding my atopic dermatits and according to her, I have the worst case she have seen in her entire life. Today, it gotten worst too. Is there still cure for this? I havent tried any products not even the prescribed prods the doctor adviced me (too pricey). She also mentioned this laser/uv like thing to me but did not elaborate and to think its much cheaper than what she recommend me to buy. Is there any way to cure it? My self-esteem is very low now because of this. Your advice would be very helpful. And oh! If you want to see how it looks like now, I can upload a picture. Thank you in advance, Donna

Air purifiers do they really work?

I just moved into a cute little cottage near lake Michigan. I never noticed the moldy smell, typical of many cottages near water, before I moved in. My allergies are ramped up and the smell is making me sick. Does anyone know if air purifiers really work and if they would take care of the allergens and the odor? If so what brand and type do you recommend?

Can Honey Really Help with Allergies?

As I've talked about before, my dad suffers from allergies - indoor, outdoor - in addition to asthma. It seems that as he gets older, his symptoms get worse, and it's hard to watch. It's very strange seeing your father have trouble breathing. Anyway, he swears by his neti pot and we use a humidifier in the house, but he could always use more relief. I heard recently that eating local honey can help with allergies. Now, there are some natural remedies I can't see my dad using (I can't see him getting acupuncture, for example) but I think he could get behind something as sweet as honey. Has anyone else heard of this - or better yet, tried it? -Laura

The Allergy Bubble - Are we OVER protecting our kids?

I just read this article by Sandra Beasley, a woman who suffers from an extensive list of deadly allergies. In a nutshell (bad allergy pun not intended), she advocates that parents of kids with allergies loosen up a little bit when it comes to bans and "allergen-free" zones. She brings up a lot of interesting points - for example, that such a sheltered life cannot possibly prepare the child for the real world. She says, "You can only protect us from so much." What are your thoughts on this? I think the brings up a wise point of view, but I think it's definitely easier said than done. I don't have any kids, let alone with allergies, but I imagine that if I did, I would do everything I could to protect them. It's hard to curb that protective instinct!

Mild Food Allergies and Elimination Diet

I’ve had dark circles under my eyes for as long as I can remember and also suffer from a perpetually runny nose. :p Recently it was suggested that I may have a mild allergy to some sort of food. Could this be the case? I’ve read about elimination diets to try and figure it out, but they seem so complicated! What am I supposed to eat if I try one?!
