I had cellulitis on my back over labor day (starting sept. 1st), it cleared up and then appeared the next week on my side. Today, the red, bumpy, raised, hot and somewhat hard rash appeard on my abdamon. This is the third seperate area and three weeks.

What you describe sounds more like a contact allergy as infections do not resolve and recur like that, allergic rashes do. Get a new opinion. ...Read more

Can swallowing cum ripen the cervix or bring on labor compared to evening primrose oil? Which one works better?

Also, no medical or scientific evidence that shows evening primrose oil to be either safe or unsafe. Best advice is to never attempt to induce labor on your own. ...Read more
