can chronic inflammation (chronic exzema and boils) cause you to ovulate late each cycle & creating pcos?i ovulate but late. no insulin/testoste slim

No: Exzema won't prevent you from ovulating or cause PCOS. A mild infection such as a boil won't either. A very severe infection that results in a hospital stay and IV antibiotics could prevent ovulation but won't cause PCOS. The underlying cause of PCOS is insulin resistance in the cells. Higher levels of insulin prevent ovulation and cause PCOS. Best wishes! ...Read more

Hi! I have skin prone to breakouts,which leave acne and pimple scars.. What can I possibly eat to get glowing skin? I am vegetarian & No eggs. Thanks!

Beyond that, consider applying Vitamin E oil directly on the skin to help w/scars and adding good oil to your diet to lubricate the skin, e.g., coconut oil, olive oil. Avoid transfats.
