hi, im a white male , 48 years old. I

hi, im a white male , 48 years old. I live in my own home with no pets. I would say Im upper middle class and we keep a neat home.

a few months ago I had itching on my feet and I considered Athletes foot. But it spread to my upper legs and grin area. I used a variety of treatment methods , lotriman for my feet and groin and I would shower and bath a with a tea tree formula.

some nights if it the itching was bad I would spray down my body with alcohol and apply a oatmeal cream to my body.

well its back. and for the life of me I have no idea where its coming from. I do tend to sweat a lot but Im a man who showers 2x day min.

a KEY NOTE * there are no red blotches like the pictures I saw of ringworm. If I scratch enough it will get red but never raised or crusted.

thinking it was a yeast infection, I took a full script of Fluconazole 200mg.

I do have a few drinks a day as this has been a stressful period in my life. I also smoke but I went to the drs and my BP was a perfect 80/120 with an athletes hear rate. I would say I have above average genetic as I was a competitive athlete for years.

Can someone please help me identify what may be happening with me? The itchiness is primary areas are groin, feet and underarms.

After a shower with a tea tree wash, I do feel relief but it is short lived as it comes back the next day.

Hi. I adopted a rescued 10 year old male neutered maltese a few weeks ago. He was easily potty trained to use the doggie door . The issue we have is his extreme aggression [?] , growling, snarling, lunging, biting and continuous barking whenever any one comes into my bedroom and/or near my bed. He has totally claimed my king size bed as his own and He will not let anyone near the bed. Even if the person stops at the door and does not enter the room he goes off.. He does it to me also if I just walk near the bed; I am not afraid of him , but it is extremely annoying and wears on my nerves. And he does not look at all like my cute endearing little boy. If company does come he will stay in the bedroom right on the area where I sleep at night and not come out. I feel it may be a way of protecting me, but think it may be territorial aggression, or fear induced aggression??? He was at the shelter for 5 months in a cage and they had gotten him from the pound before that. He has the run of the house but generally stays on my bed, even if I am in the kitchen making food or anything, but he watches every move I make and needs to know where I am at all times. I can calm him down somewhat by rubbing both of his ears and telling him I love him and talking in a calm loving manner. What do you think is going on and How can I break him of this? Is it possible? I did buy a citronella scented spray bark collar , but have not used it yet , [for his constant loud barking when he is acting the this way]. Please help. I have had lots of dogs in my life [I m 71 years old] but nothing like this. Thank you. Sarah

Fit 30 yr old male with hypertension and EXTREME pulse pressure - need specialist? Hi, i am a fit 30 year old non smoker with a low resting pulse of 40 bpm, with an average pulse of 58 across all BP measurements, but i have been diagnosed with essential hypertension by my GP. I have been home monitoring my BP for a few months now - Prior to medication, my BP was 150/81 (n= 41, over 7 days). Taking Coversyl 10 mg only reduced it to 143/77 (n =116, over 45 days). I then tried Coversyl Plus (5mg/1.25 mg), which had even less of an effect (148/80, n = 42 over 17 days). I have now been on Coversyl 10 mg and 1.5 mg indapamide for 5 days (140/72, n =22), and it is having more of an effect, although it appears to drop my diastolic very low when resting - I ve had supine measurements (watching the tour de france!) of 146/58. Hence, i am worried about my pulse pressure - my diastolic is low, but my systolic is still high - my average pulse pressure over all this time is 66, with a max of 101 and a min of only 48). Should i see a cardiologist? Cheers all - some extra notes - I m not worried about my low resting pulse - I m proud of it ;) I included it as an indication of my fitness level (yes, i have always exercised regularly). Neither parent suffers from high BP. Re: paramedic - from what i can see in the literature, the vogue now seems to be emphasise MAP or mean arterial pressure [MAP = (sys* 1/3 + dia * 2/3) ]- which provides a better estimate of the total stress your organs are under than either the systolic or diastolic alone. If you use MAP as an indicator, i do have mild hypertension, and i do agree with my GP that in my case (physically fit, non-smoker with no genetic history and only 30 years of age) that is somewhat unusual, and probably deserves treatment. I think i will take your advice and get a referall to a specialist though - I m a little worried about her seeming lack of expertise in the area.
