Liver Disease, Issue with Dryness Inside and Out
Here goes Ted. I have liver disease and now kidneys aren't liking it much either. I am very dry inside and out. I shower with oil and constantly rub the best lotions I can find. I've done much research. Ive had something on my scalp for over ten years and now scalp is showing through and I had a huge amt of hair. Been to several doctors to no avail. It's built up crust, or dandruff. My scalp is very dry and also have some folliculitis going on. THey got rid of my thyroid gland as well 10 yrs ago and that is not helping. Recently I got some PH test strips. I have no acid in case that's of help to you. Very high on the PH side. I take water pills, thyroid med and a little bit of BP medicine and that's it.
Ok, here lately, I got what I would call seb derm on my face. Skin cracked around my nose, eyebrows, ears etc. THen I got that all cleared up and my legs are covered now with what I think is ecxema. I don't do Dermat. because they prescribe cortisone and I can't take it. Too weak. I tried the ACV rinse and it made my scalp even drier. I tried putting Tea tree pure oil on sores on my scalp to no avail. I remembered reading about boric acid on your site. I bought some today when I just happened to see it at the store. I don't know how to use it exactly. I have my face cleared once again but my legs are red, inflamed and not covered in scales like Psoriasis but when you scratch, the skin just comes off. My scalp will not really flake it's so stuck on there unless I scartch that off too. Maybe excema of the scalp? I will go get a DX and then get back to you unless you have another suggestion. I have tried, zinc, because I tested low in it, also in shampoo, and every other dandruff shampoo there is. Most of them only irrate and make me drier. There are patches on my scalp here and there without sores that are just dry and thick. But the whole scalp is dry. Dusty dry. But using oil only seems to make the crusty stuff stick worse. Am I making sense here? Tonight I took about a Tbls of boric acid, c of water and poured it o my head. My hair felt like hay. Then I shampooed with yet a new product that is not typical and if it helps I will tell you about it. Made by LOccitane I think. More of a herbal that a dandruff shampoo but is for dandruff. I am so tired of all of this and have been on a transplant list for over a year. I jsut need to get a little more confortable and am hopin you can give me some help. I would be forever in your debt. I even bought Manuke honey oil for my feet, ankle and legs for the peeling red hot skin. I do use all natural stuff. Once in a while I use salon shampoos just to feel normal and for my hair to feel and smell nice. Let me know if you have time please. Thanks so much.
PS. Sorry this is so long... I drink water water water all the time. Also, the liver isnt processing the thryoid meds very well any more so that may be my biggest problem. Not looking for a cure just some relief. It's gotten to where my hands are in my hair constantly. Not a good thing. Oh and I take plenty of probiotics but I'm sure this is yeast of some kind.
