Skin Rashes (Again!)

Tuesday last week, I got this tiny red spots popping out on my skin that started on the left side of my back down to my legs. The one on my back was itchy, and I only was able to take a look at it on the mirror when I went for a shower. They were very red and streaky! The red streaks were due to my scratches and they were irritating. I put some anti itch ointment on the itchy spots, and it seems to be relieving it.

The spots on my legs and thighs were not itchy and they are the same ones that popped out in the summer of 2010.

Anyway, I went to the doctor for a check up and gave me a short term treatment of Prednisone and anti allergy meds called Periactin good for a week. I am feeling better now, and the spots are going away.

The only thing that I am not sure of is what's causing those spots to appear since the doctor said it was not petechiae. If it's an allergy reaction, I am not sure if it is due to food, detergents or cleansing chemicals I use. So, I think I need to observe the detergent I am using, and at the same time cleansing chemicals.

I should have taken a shot of the rashes so I can share it, but I was so overwhelmed and got alarmed a little bit, so it didn't get through my mind taking a photo of it. They are nasty looking...LOL!

Guest post from: Mohamed Simon

When I turned on the news last week through Direct tv richmond, I was captivated with a story about a woman who had recently lost her husband. Upon his death, she received a large sum of money from his estate. As a wonderful tribute to the man that she grieved, she made a decision to go into random K-marts and pay off people’s layaway accounts. Her generosity sparked other people’s generosity, and these random acts of kindness spread across the country. It’s funny- hate can breed hate, but love and generosity can do the same. This story truly inspired me to pay my blessings forward. Not for show or for the appreciation from others, but for genuine care and compassion for another human being. The funny thing is, it doesn’t take much. Sometimes a kind word, a smile, or just holding the door open for a mother struggling with her bags of groceries and a toddler in hand can make all the difference in a person’s day. These small acts of kindness just may inspire others to do the same.

Blogger's Bad Glitches! :(

I should say, if anything catches up any glitch due to downed servers due to maintenance, etc...I can still hang up unto it, but NOT for blogger!

I have 5 active blogs hosted from blogger, and considering that these blogs are ALL income earners, I couldn't just afford to let them undergo bad glitches. I couldn't imagine myself sitting in front of my PC the whole day trying to figure out what was happening one day when all of a sudden ALL of my .com domain blogs were no longer accessible. I found out later that the problem seems to be on my end which means anybody can access them normally in another location, except for me! Oh well, that was partly a good news so all those unpaid posts can still be accessed for further checking so that I can be paid! :)

On the other hand, I still have to get them back to normal because I need my URL posts for every paid blog post I will submit. Considering that I have one pending paid post to be done the next day, I need to work double time in order to get it back to normal.
Ah...research here and there paid off, finally!!!! Whew!

I had to switch all my .com blogs to their blogger sub domain, which made me so hesitant at first because what if I can't switch them back to their .com? I took the risk anyway, but I had to start working on the one that is the least active blog, although that one has a Google page rank 1 (PR) already. I was just thinking the PR will get affected with the switching, but so far, it is still there!

It was just a good feeling to see them get back to normal seeing them online. But that glitch was strange to me and up to now, I don't have any idea what cause them to went "mixed up"!

Ahhh...blogger, you made me crazy for a day!

Actos Cancer Lawyers

I don't have diabetes and thus I have not tried this drug product called Actos. Many diabetic patients have been reported to be using this product particularly for Type II diabetics. Actos with a generic name of Piogliatazone is manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

But Actos is not for everyone with diabetes. Bad reports that have been received by liability lawyers are too overwhelming where many Actos users have been diagnosed with bladder cancer, one dangerous side effects of the drug that seems to have gone unnoticed by many users.

I don't have any idea yet what is the stand of FDA, the manufacturer and many medical experts as to a massive recall of this product from market shelves. But the fact is that many lawsuits are being filed nowadays with many Actos users claiming for liability injuries and damages from the manufacturer. If you think you have a case similar to this, you maybe entitled for a compensation.
