Success and What About Tonsillectomy?
Hi, I'm 34,
female and have had P since I was 11.
It started initially after a strep throat infection.
Over the course of 23 years I have tried pretty much every lotion
and potion, as well as homeopathy, herbal therapies, acupuncture and
hypnotherapy. None of these
'alternatives' did much for me. In March I had a particularly bad flare up
(after my 6th strep throat in 3 months) and ended up in hospital for a
month. I have really been
struggling with it since I was discharged.
I was prescribed Dovobet last week by my specialist and have used
it 3 times. Wow! A marked
improvement. It's funny how
'healthier' skin can make you feel so much better in yourself.
I am waiting
for a surgery appointment to have a tonsillectomy and would be keen to
know if any fellow sufferers think this would help.
Also, I have 1
other query — I have 2 sons and we are thinking about adding to our
number. What are the
contra-indications with Dovobet and Dovonex?
Do I feel like
P controls my whole life? YES!
Your website is
great — very informative and clearly designed by someone who knows what
they are talking about, invaluable support.
I would be very
grateful indeed if you were able to answer my 2 queries.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Response: Thanks for writing,
have been discussed to some length here.
Go to the Archives
for references to the correspondence under “tonsillectomy.”
Some people who think their P is closely associated with sore
throat infections — especially strep — also believe tonsillectomies
You really need
to ask your prescribing doc about the pregnancy implications of Dovobet
and Dovonex. What I have to
say is derived from available literature.
information about Dovobet is available here:
states it should not be used during pregnancy.
And, according to the NPF, Dovonex should not be used during
pregnancy, either, nor while breast feeding.
That aside, I
have a question for you? Did
your P subside during your earlier pregnancies?
Many women have reported here there P improved significantly —
with no medications — during their pregnancies.
If that’s your case, maybe you won’t have to worry about
Dovobet or Dovonex. Wouldn’t
that be nice?
