Another ? for ff: (and anyone else)
Gonna post in h&h later too - nak
DD1 has the terrible habit of sucking on & biting her bottom lip. It is red & raw. While she's getting somewhat better abouut biting it, now she's picking off the dry healing peices of skin.
Sometimes it looks red, *wet* and (yeast-y?) Other times just orange-ish and crusty.
I've tried coconut cream (from Tropical Traditions) which does help some, I've tried Emu cream and abtibiotic cream.
I realize that it won't completely heal until she leaves it alone, but what do you think would work best? Do you think this is yeast?
saskiasmom, depression is yet another symtom of a problem of the gut. PM Gale Force for a pdf of her book she is working on -- precisely on this topic (well, postpartum).
Im confused about it. It seems like I know as many people who have treated themselves for yeast successfully and gone on with their lives as I do people who seem never to get rid of it. I understand that finding individual balance is key, but why do we have to work so hard when so many others (the majority) go about normal eating/drinking and dont get into trouble? For example, it sounds like most of us were going blythely about our lives before either having kid[s] with issues or suddenly having issues ourselves. Im NOT advocating SAD, I just really dont get it. Ive talked a lot about dis-ease with Dh and he underscores that people just get sick, no one expects it. I guess that's just the way it is. Sorry if Im a downer - I guess Im working on the acceptance part of this *journey* as much or more than the symptoms and diet/treatment. ...or acceptance is part of my journey.... bla bla bla
