Natural Way To Treat Mesenteric Panniculitis
Will Mesenteric Panniculitis go away without treatment? Any known treatments without medication or surgery?

Several: Rash, irritation where skin overlaps, redness, may be sore to touch, often weeps (fluids). Best to clean often with sterile soap (like hibiclens), rinse, and dry.

Plastic surgery!: Other than gastric bypass, lap band surgery, or diet and weight loss to decrease the bulk of your panniculus (or pannus), excess hanging abdominal apron skin cannot be exercised away. Keeping things clean, dry, and non-infected is great to try to do, but the only effective way to deal with this is surgical panniculectomy, or even better, complete or fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty.

Why do some websites say a symptom of pancreatic cancer is lumpy fatty tissue? Is this referring to panniculitis caused by acinar cell carcinoma?
Ms. Amanda: Unfortunately there are no good tests for screening for pancreatic cancer. Lipase is not reliable and lumpy fat is a quack thing.

Why is a symptom of pancreatic cancer sometimes listed as "uneven texture of fatty tissue"? Does this mean panniculitis from acinar cell carcinoma?
Not common: The origin of pancreatic cancer is within the ductal Some people with pancreatic cancer develop an uneven texture of the fatty tissue underneath the skin. This is caused by the release of the pancreatic enzymes that digest fat. Tumor eventually obstructs the duct completely to prevent digestive enzymes from being secreted resulting in steatorrhea.

I have discoid lupus & panniculitis. May I know what explains my constantly elevated igg level (~2000)? I also have lymphopenia due to steroid intake.
Just a bit high: That's not surprising in systemic autoimmune disease where there's often a polyclonal gammopathy. We don't usually treat discoid lupus with systemic glucocorticoids, and I'm wondering what the panniculitis is really about (Weber-Christian?). You may have some alternative to long-term steroids, which are brutal. Perhaps you can get a second opinion / clarification. Read more

Tea Tree Oil:
I'm not sure about mangosteen or nutmeg powder for ringworm, but tea tree oil has been shown to help cure athlete's foot nearly as well as a prescription cream. You'd want to apply it twice daily for at least 2 weeks and be sure to keep the skin clean and dry.
I would only try this on the body or feet for a few weeks, not the scalp; if not better, you should see your doctor. Read more
