POD

Posted by CG on September 02, 2001 at 22:47:02:

Dr. Stoll

I have read all the available postings regarding POD. It is amazing how good it feels to know that I am not alone in this. I am going to order the SLS free toothpast tonight with hopes that I will notice some changes in my face. I was told almost 10 years ago by my dermatologist that I have POD. I have tried what seems to be everything under the moon to get rid of this aweful thing. My most recent flare up has stayed with me for over a year now. The interesting thing is that just recently patches in the inner portion of both eyelids have appeared. It is just like what has for so long been above and underneath my mouth. My question is, how can this be POD when it is not around my mouth? It appears to be the same exact thing.

Thank you for your help.

Hi, CG.

The LGS is the common demnomenator.

I began to get symptoms of POD 1n 1997 after my husband and I divorced and I lost a lot of weight. I was studying at uni and working as a nurse 4 hours a day and looking after two toddlers. I find my body reacts to stress outwardly. I tried everything to get rid of it and it wasn't until I went to a dermatologist who prescribed me doxycycline that I found a way to get rid of it (or so I thought). I was placed on these antibiotics for 6 weeks and was forbidden from using any creams or steroid preps.My symptoms completely disappaered. It is now 2001 and I have it back again. I know I am naughty but I got my husband, a dentist to prescribe the antibiotics again. They are not helping. I read with interest your chat about toothpaste. I have looked at mine and it contains Sodium fluoride,triclosan and pymima coplymer. I am from Australia. I hardly wear makeup and was wondreing is this related to candida?

Hi, sam (from down under).

It IS possible. However, remember C-RS cannot happen to snyone unless they have, first, LGS & LGS is the most common precipitating factor in POD.

You have this back (and the antibiotics are not working this time) BECAUSE the root cause was not discovered back then and has STILL not been addressed. You are 4 years older now and you will have to work harder this time to get rid of it.

It is POSSIBLE that you are reacting to something in your toothpaste BUT that possibility is way down the list. I know of no temporary treatment you can do this time to give you time to deal with the LGS but that is what you are going to have to do.

Someone else on the BB may well have some other temporary suggestion and I will learn about it as you do.

Let us know how you do.

If you are not sure about "wellness" go to the glossary and the archives.

Walt
