The only way Gloxi will make you taller is if you stand on the bottles. If you try it, prepare to be disappointed (and poorer). ...Read more

Barefoot in the grass in north Georgia and felt like a sting on the arch of my foot. Found a small white-ish worm trying to burrow into my skin.
HMMM: Sounds odd for sure. I am not up on my white worm insects from Northern Georgia, but any insect bite can be infections. Clean the area well, and use topical antibx to prevent any infection. NSAIDS may help with discomfort. If it starts to get enlarged, redder, drain pus, you get feverish, than see the Dr. Best wishes. ...Read more
