I have some skin problems, and I’m looking for advice.
I’m going to Germany for work in a few weeks to work during summer, will do physical labor, so I would like to have my skin fixed somehow.

So, the hand skin problem looks like in the picture. Started when I was like 16 or something, it happens usually twice a year, beginning of winter and summer, lasts for a week or two and goes away, after that skin seems normal, maybe sweats a bit too much.

Starts off with pointing and thumb fingertips peeling off slowly, and it will peel completely, several layers of skin, to the point where it becomes a wound in some places.
After first layer peel, spreads to other fingertips and to the rest of hands.
Finger tips become much harder and I can press my fingertip skin in and it stays pressed in for some time, I think it’s called edema, not sure… this makes very painful sensation under the fingernails if pressed even a bit.
This time it’s a bit different, it also has an itchy red rash with very small bubbles mostly colorless or white liquid.

I use hand creams, they help with the dryness, but the problem is still there.
I called local dermatologists, the free ones are available in a month soonest, so that’s not an option, and since I’m a poor student, I can’t afford private dermatologist.

Also I have small dermatitis in the middle of my chest, minor dandruff in hair, ears, face also comes and goes, and generally dry skin.

Had the same thing one summer when I got sick and got a fever so I had do sweat it out. The dermatologist told me that this sweating combined with the usual sweating from the hot weather fucked up the glands in my hands. What happened was basically my skin shed and then it was like nothing had happened. Use a moisturizer on your hands and drink lots of water would be my advice.

I would not be so quick to trow a diagnosis like that one. That is not a typical localization for psoriasic lesions, and it's a commonly misdiagnosed condition so probably not even you have it. I'm not saying it's not, but a (good) dermatologist should check on OP to tell so.

There's this like hard lump under the skin of my dick on the top of my shaft. It doesn't hurt.

It's just a small, hard lump under the skin and it wasn't there like a week or two ago as far as I can tell.

It's not a fordyce spot, because it's under the skin and I only have those on the underside of my dick. This thing is hard and under the skin and feels like it's attached to a vein or something.

Tell me /med/ is it dick cancer? It's dick cancer isn't it?

Lucky for you no, it's not cancer, but could become in several years. Let it stay there for some months, it'll probably fade, and if it doesn't or it grows or itchs or the color changes go see a doctor so he can remove it and get it checked.

That shit is awesome. For an introduction, I suggest you getting "Reading the Body: Ohashi's Book of Oriental Diagnosis".
It's not hard to see that occidental medicine has quite a lot of limitations, mostly in what relates to preserving health instead of simply healing diseases. The meridian system, as well as the five elements system, can help a lot with everyday diagnosis of little malfunctions and are great to preserve one's health, know one's weaknesses and strong points and release the maximum potential of every person.
Of course there's no scientific basis for it, oriental diagnosis is more of an artistic discipline, and also it won't replace going to a hospital when you have cancer or have being stabbed in the chest, but it's a great complement for our western soulless medicine. Also, keep in mind that those eastern fellows don't separate body, psyche and spirit in the same way that we do, to them it's one and the same thing and what affects any of the three has an effect on the rest. For instance they believe that anger is an emotion linked to the liver, compassion to the spleen (to which they pay a lot more respect than we do) and so on. Also, what happens to those organs can have a repercussion all over them meridians and not only and sometimes not at all in the organ itself.
Anyways, it's different but good. If you won't be judging it and simply accepting what the guys say as something reasonable but totally apart from our scientific cannons, it can be very helpful for you.

So i have this issue where if I eat fruit, candy, or drink soda or energy drinks at all in the morning, I'm almost certain to get a shaky, weak feeling throughout my body that sometimes even makes me slurr my words and think weird thoughts. Doesnt happen as often if I eata sugar free breakfast and lunch and then have sugar later in the day. Energy drinks do it to me the worst, but Im addicted to them. Ive looked up hypoglycemia and diabetes but the symptoms of both dont seem to match exactly. I plan on talking to a doctor eventually, but wanted to get some feedback from you guys. anyone have or have friends/family with similar issues?
Edwin Dunningchet - Fri, 03 Jun 2016 21:06:49 EST tmvx/ci+ No.54193 Reply
Cortisol levels are higher in the mornings, with a peak at 6:00 AM. This makes your body more sensitive to glucose, so when you consume high amounts you release a lot of insulin and this paradoxically makes you hypoglycemic in a short term because the sugar passes from your bloodstream to the tissues quickly. You probably have some kind of metabolic condition that exacerbates this physiological phenomenon, probably not.
Avoid doing so, and I would even suggest you not having any breakfast at all. You can experiment with some intermittent fasting method like leangains, there's plenty of information about it on google. And stop poisoning yourself with those sodas and energy drinks, take black coffee instead.

What would be a good diet for prolonged hours (>12) of studying.

I'm thinking small portions spaced out over 5 to 7 intakes a day. High in slow-release carbs and a moderate amount of fat.

Please help. I don't know much about this stuff.

you're right that eating many smaller meals throughout the day will help you study
doing this should maintain a fairly steady blood sugar level
when you feel like you're getting strained take a break, eat a small portion of fruit and take a 5 minute walk preferably in the sun and rest your eyes by looking out to the horizon

I'm a web developer at the moment and spend most of my energy on mental activity and this has proven to be most effective for me:
Extremely light snacks, lots of water and fruit and nuts and greens (cabbage, kale, chard, algae for me), a couple of eggs for protein if you can't eat enough nuts, steel cut oats, peanut butter, lots of good fat like milk, butter, coconut, and olive oil. Lots of mangoes, berries, dried papaya, and citrus for fruit.
I also fast regularly which seems to definitely help. I usually only eat once or twice a day and just eat an orange or banana or something when I get super hungry outside my main meal.
I take lots of herbs: kratom, matcha, espresso, American/Siberian/Indian ginsengs, ginkgo, St. John's wort, chamomile.
The herbs are a very personal thing but that diet (plus frequent naps and walks and stretching to keep from burning out and getting damaged from extended sitting [which will fucking kill you]) is top notch for extended mental activity with low physical. I load up on sweet potatoes and chicken and fish when I'm active.

Weird thing on leg.

Sup, I've got no camera unfortunately so that sucks.

I think that I was bit/stung by something. There is a small white section like tiny scar tissue from a possible sting. The spot is about the size of a dental pick tip. Around it is a ~dime sized red area. With a darker more purplish tinted red in the middle around the white speck. There is a slight almost indiscernible area about the size of a baseball around it that is just barely red. It is noticeable but not really dark colored. Something akin to a very, very light sunburn or about like spending a few hours in the sun. It is firm and slightly warmer that the opposite side of the other leg. It doesn't itch but is somewhat tender to the touch. Walking around can make it feel like a sore muscle sort of. Just not very intense.

I've had it for about a week, maybe a bit over, maybe a bit under. It was there and annoyed on Monday so I know I had it Sunday or maybe Saturday. It wasn't bad and seemed like a regular old bite from some bug and didn't itch or anything really. I spent a fair amount of time moving around and it is located exactly in the seam of my pants so it rubbed it a lot. The little lip on the pants seemed to have flared it up a bit. I thought it was maybe an ingrown hair or some kinda pimple and prodded it a bit and a very thin layer of skin peeled back. I'm currently soaking it in vinegar to clean it up, this is the first amount of care I have given it. Does this sound like anything I should worry about?

I'm that other fag on /vroom/ so I was going to start a long trip away from immediate medical services and I plan on leaving tomorrow around noon. I don't want to postpone but I may have to. It wasn't hardly anything a day ago but it has more pretty irritated today.

I don't think and I hope it isn't staph. I'm pretty clean and mostly healthy. I've had these kinds of bites or sting type things in the past because I sleep in less than optimal places and usually they go away after about a week or two. I think this one just got irritated from being such a bad place in relation to my pants. Since it has been a week or honestly probably more I doubt it is some kinda badass bug like a brown recluse or something. I'm not super sensitive to bee/wasp stings and clear them up in a day or two.

Any advice? It doesn't really look like anything serious enough to have checked out. I'm rather broke and don't know how insurance/medical places work. I've been lucky enough to stay away from those kinda facilities. I normally wouldn't give a fuck and just ignore these kind of things but given that I may be walking a shitload and away from healthcare places I'd like some input.

This is the most related picture I can find. Just make the outer color ring much lighter in color and less defined edges and have the middle ring a bit smaller with a more round shape and also lighter with a slightly purplish color in the middle. This is a picture of a bee sting. I've been stung by wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and those things that build mud lines on walls and shit. I've never been stung by a bee. Could you get stung sleeping by a bee and not notice the pain when you wake up?

Thanks in advanced.

I had one of those and it was just getting more itchy and far worse by the second day and really getting worse by the minute at a point. Tries nn epsom salt compress and it was basically gone in 20 minutes, where a hospital was seeming to be the only option at that point.

We have reddish spiders that at times will just jump at or on you, they like bounce sometimes. sleeping on the floor no doubt if they are around they will get you it a few times. Unless you are lucky with bulding some kind of blanket barrier around you.

Kinda surprised nobody has said this yet, I thought it was common knowledge. But it looks suspiciously like a "bull's eye rash" which is a big indicator of Lyme disease.

Do you think you may have been bitten by a tick? It's a pretty serious condition and you might want to get checked out, show a doctor the picture. Lyme disease is no joke, but there are treatments. The initial bite may heal but the bacteria stays in your system and can cause problems later in life, even up to 20 years later. Sorry if that's what it is.

>Month later.

Never went to doctor for it, about a week ago it got kinda irritated slightly from chaffing but now all the hardness and texture is gone. It remains as a purple dot with 2 slightly darker spots about 1/4" apart and about the size as the diameter of a regular pencil.

Guess it isn't impossible but I'm not really worried. If shit gets bad enough I'll go to a doctor and propose it to them or whatever.

My armpits smell extra bad lately to me they smell like either dead fish or shit.

My urine has a strong odor to it also smelling almost like shit sometimes usually the darker it is the more it smells.

Is this something I should be concerned about?

You glossed over other possibilities to say that a metabolic issue "probably" caused both the smell and the stone.
>There must be something there, metabolic probably, that caused the stones on the first place.
This statement is highly assumptive. Stones form for many different reasons and various contributing factors. Most people who get a stone don't have a diagnosable metabolic issue behind it.

i got blackout drunk and tried to fight my friend and he punched me in the face (he was drunk too)

i woke up the next day with (besides a hangover and sense of shame and embarrassment) a black eye and a numbness in my two left incisors. its been 5 days and the larger incisor is a bit less numb but the smaller one is still pretty much totally numb. there's also a weird slight numbness in the left side of my top lip (where the teeth are)

is this likely just some kind of nerve damage that will heal with time, or am i potentially facing the loss of a tooth? my teeth are already shitty and worn down (dentist thinks i have some problem with my enamel) i would be pretty fucking depressed if i became gappy mcgaptooth.

Sup /med/, I've got a question -
Not to go into details, but recently I've learned that a certain psychiatrist advised a mother that's complained of problems with her emotionally unstable son (that suffered a minor breakdown shortly before the whole thing) to "reject" him (that is, threaten to cut out parental support - which is illegal, but still; as well as act generally cold, distant, provoke guilt and shame and so on) so as to "convince" him to "behave" (which in this case, meant returning home and allowing himself to be subject to day treatment under her care). The psychiatrist also presented the mother with ways to coax her son into guilt and convince him that he's insane (notably, she's been taught how to use gaslighting for this purpose). The mother followed the advice, by the way, and it didn't go too well.

That... doesn't seem to be something a psychiatrist should advise people to do. Is that just a case of a sociopath practitioner, or is this some kind of woo circulating around, like primal scream therapy or something? Can anything, other than smearing the psychiatrist (which is neither effective nor proper) done to prevent this from happening in the future? Can anything of note be done for the, well, unwitting subject of this treatment? Is bringing the matter up with another, unrelated psychiatrist feasible, or will the case be thrown out, for whatever reason - and if it's possible it'll be, then for what reason(s)?

Thanks for any and all advice. Picture kind of related, possibly.
