Hi, I have had a hard lump on my inner thigh for about 6 months if not longer now, it has always been about the size of a small pea untill a couple of days when I woke up and it was slightly swollen and sore. I ve just checked it again and it s now about the size of a grape and is getting sorer. I went to the doctors about it ages ago and they couldn t really diagnose anything and said to go back if it changes. I m booking an appointment tomorrow but I m sick with worry and could really do with some sleep tonight.... Could you help me please? I m a 20 year old male.

Hello, I'm 50 years old. I have Crohn's disease since 1984. I keep it at bay since 1995 by being vegetarian and eating lactose free. (Parmesan cheese older than 30 months is advertised as being lactose free). Recently I have diagnosed myself as having Duhring's disease or Dermatitis Herpetiformis. It was confirmed by a young doctor in the E.R. room at the hospital. So now I'm eating vegetarian, lactose free, and Gluten free too. How long will it take for me to overcome the terrible-looking, itchy skin condition that I have from when I stopped eating Gluten? Thanks so much for your responses. Maurizio Pieroni YYYY@YYYY
