I have livedo reticularis, bulging veins, non-healing body acne, off/on fever, GI bleeds, diarrhea ALT w/constip, migraines, shocks of pain neck lymph nodes. No ibd, ANA negative. Any common cause?

Complicated question: Pika this is not one for the internet these can be caused by a variety if illnesses. Autoimmune problems come to mind. First you need a good internist, consultation with rheumatologist as well. These persons must be board certified in their fields as well.
I would be surprised if your illnesses were not related to a central cause of either an immune nature, or lymptatic system disturbances. ...Read more

Wouldn't think so: None of the active ingredients of creams or lotions like BP are absorbed into your blood stream or digestive tract. There would be no way they could cause diarrhea unless you eat the stuff. Look to something you are eating or drinking as a likely trigger. ...Read more

I have pimples or acne from my pregnancy and when I eat chicken I am feeling itchy in my face Is chicken bad for pimples or acne?

Can't blame chicken: Eating some chicken, cooked in a more healthy manner, should not alter one's acne.

Finally, be at a healthy weight, not overweight. ...Read more

I have pcos and type 2 diabetes, the doc took me off metformin temporarily, could that give me bad acne and pregnancy like symptoms not pregnant.

Possibly: Metformin helps to lower fat synthesis. Fortunately you can eat 6 equal healthy meals and do 10 minutes of exercise after each meal to get the benefits of metformin without taking the medication. Diabetes, pcos, and acne are all helped by lowering stress, avoiding sugar, increasing vegetables and taking evening primrose oil which is high in gamma linoleic acid. ...Read more

My son gets diarrhea every time he eats any amount of apples, I'm inclined to think he has an intolerance, but have not heard of a reaction to just a few slices of an apple. He has seasonal allergies & chronic bumps on arms/legs look like pimples.

My son gets diarrhea every time he eats any amount of apples, I'm inclined to think he has an intolerance, but have not heard of a reaction to just a few slices of an apple. He has seasonal allergies & chronic bumps on arms/legs look like pimples.

Intolerance: Rather than having an allergic reaction to Apple's, I believe that his intestinal tract doesn't tolerate the skin of the Apple which is insoluble. Try peeling the Apple before feeding it to him. Chronic bumps in his skin may need a dermatologist's evaluation to determine whether they're an allergic reaction to something internal or external. An allergist may also be helpful in this regard. ...Read more
