Can potatoes really help reduce skin redness?

No: Red skin is from rosacea usually. Using gentle products, topical Metrogel or using a skin rejuvenation laser can help. Decreasing your alcohol, caffeine intake and eating plant based can improve inflammation which helps the skin. ...Read more

No, they are ok: The nutritional value of a potato is actually greater when it is eaten raw. It contains vitamin C, B6 and niacin. Curiously, raw potatoes are known as a food craved by pregnant woman. Be very careful to wash the potato carefully. Good luck with the nausea (and the twins!) ...Read more

9 month old stuck her hand in my hot potatoes on my plate, no blister so far just really red. Will she be OK?

First Degree Burn: If you are seeing red skin but no blister this is going to be a first degree burn. I would just put a dab of neosporin on it tonight and take a look at it in the morning. Babies can move fast! Take this opportunity to start thinking about safeproofing the house and plan to have it complete by babies first birthday! Splash burns are common as they start to toddle! She will be fine! ...Read more

YES!: The key to losing weight is to eat less, but not all calories are created equal. Sugars & simple carbs from grains esp cause weight gain. I like dr. Furhman's diet: www.Drfuhrman.Com/library/foodpyramid.Aspx dr. Weil has useful info: www.Huffingtonpost.Com/andrew-weil-md/carbohydrates-weight-loss_b_1937312.Html- see his "discuss that" link in his article. Exercise is also important. See comment:. ...Read more

Eat healthy: Eat a diet with at least 80 grams of complete (animal or soy) protein every day and lots of fresh vegetables and fruits with some whole grains and perform regular exercise for good health. Don't worry about being too skinny if you have good energy and eat right. Try over-the counter acne medicines such as benzoyle peroxide or the Proactive products. If this isn't enough, see your doctor. ...Read more
