Scary, the medics answer to autoimmune system problems is to kill your immune system (with shit provided by Big Pharma for whom most doctors are sales reps). They put me on You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login - because Behçet's disease is also an autoimmune disorder, where the body's immune system attacks the body's own cells. I weaned myself off the poison before it killed me!

A malfunctioning immune system doesn't need to be dampened down, it needs to be adjusted. The problem is that deficiencies in our immune systems (usually associated with leaky gut syndrome)  is caused by the wrong (bad) bacteria leaking into our bloodstream, which causes the immune system to react - which is what it's designed to do. The trick is to CORRECT your body's natural balance of good and bad bacteria and gut flora.

That's where kefir and kombucha come into play. I can tell you from experience, as a Behçet's disease sufferer, that the most beneficial treatment I've had for my condition is kombucha. Are you still brewing it? Kefir is also a magical helper when it comes to immune system disorders - whatever they are.

Kefir & kombucha don't make your immune system more aggressive, they help make it behave normally - as it should.



Luckily i have a specalist who doesent want to kill my immune system and by placing me on Methotrexate he is using it to adjust my immunity it is not just a doctor giving me a box full of blister pack pills and a case of take these untill you runout like most ..  I have been weaned onto these pills at first taking 2 and having blood tests to adjust the dose if need be im now on 4 and am still having regular blood tests done to see the affect they are having on me and wether they need to be increased ..Theres talk of developing skin cancer but to be honest im a prime candicate for that with the way my skin has been behaving and it also keeps getting really badly infected and was struggling last year to get antibiotics that could control it    This problem all started with me working with cars and the diesiel affected my skin and that was in 1997 since then it has worsened and now i have devoloped something called  Chronic actinic dermatitis ........... What is chronic actinic dermatitis?

The term ‘chronic actinic dermatitis’ or “CAD” is used to describe a particularly severe form of eczema in which sensitivity to light is the main feature (photosensitivity). CAD is chronic, that is to say it typically persists for a number of years. ‘Actinic’ means “caused by sun” and ‘dermatitis’ (which is another term for eczema) means itchy inflammation of the skin.

What causes CAD?

People with CAD are very sensitive to sunlight. This causes an eczema-like reaction and can happen after as little as 30 seconds of exposure. It often only affects the areas of skin which are directly exposed to the light, and is usually worse in the summer when sunlight is strongest. There can be a delay between the sun exposure and the skin change of several days, so people may not realise that the two are linked. It is not clear exactly why certain people develop this reaction to sunlight. It may be that this is an allergy that is triggered only when light comes into contact with skin.

Other points about CAD:

    It is more common in men than women
    It usually starts after the age of 50
    It may occasionally occur in younger patients with atopic dermatitis
    It is also associated with a skin allergy to substances other than sunlight in 75% of cases
    It can affect any racial group
    It is more common in countries away from the equator

Is CAD hereditary?

No.

What are the symptoms of CAD?

Often the first thing that people with CAD notice is redness or inflammation of the face and hands which can be patchy or general. This may not cause any other symptoms but some may have itching and burning. Others may have swelling, small blisters or scaling and peeling of the skin.

What does CAD look like?

The skin changes are often strikingly limited to sun-exposed areas such as the face, ears, scalp, ‘V’ shaped area of the neck and the chest, forearms and backs of hands. There can be sharp cut-off lines where covered areas meet sun-exposed skin. After some time, the skin becomes thickened, dry and scaly. These changes may persist throughout the winter months but tend to be more severe in the summer. Skin pigmentation may develop, which can be particularly striking in darker skin types.

How can CAD be diagnosed?

Patients with CAD tend to have severe skin disease and are usually referred to their local dermatology service. If the dermatologist suspects CAD they will usually refer the person for light testing.

Phototesting

In order to confirm the diagnosis of CAD light testing is carried out. This painless test involves exposing sun-protected skin on the back to a range of different doses of ultraviolet rays of types A and B, and also to visible light. These tests usually reveal significant photosensitivity to one or more of the wavelengths of these types of light. This helps to establish the diagnosis and may also be useful when planning how best to protect the skin from the activating wavelengths.

Patch testing

Most patients with CAD also have an additional investigation called “patch testing” to see if they are allergic to any chemicals that come into contact with the skin. These chemicals include fragrances, plants, preservatives in creams and even the ingredients in sunscreens. Allergy to a chemical is characterised by a red, spotty skin response under the patch test tape. (For more information see Patch Testing leaflet.)

Can CAD be cured?

No, there is no cure for CAD and many patients with CAD remain sensitive to the sun for several years. About 10-20% of patients will find the problem goes away by itself after a number of years. However, there are measures that can be done to relieve the symptoms of this condition and lessen the effect of light.

Self Care (What can I do?):

Photoprotection

The most important thing to do is to protect the skin from the sun, even on dull days. This can be done by staying indoors, particularly when the sun is at its brightest (between 11am and 3pm). It is also essential to cover the skin as much as possible when outside. Clothing is good at blocking the sun’s rays. Some people use hoods, hats, visors and cotton gloves. Protecting the skin from the sun may improve the condition and may stop it worsening..............................................................................

Cannot carry on like i have been with a face that looked like this and my own niece even reconized me  been brewing and drinking brew the past few years never got any better so willing to try the pills ..

You poor thing - that DOES look painful and nasty. I hope you get some relief as time passes. I feel for you.

I guess when things get that bad we all get desperate and will try anything for relief. It's not something that goes away overnight is it.

Still, no problem for you on Friday if you're out and about - it's going to piddle down apparently! Joking apart, you take care, and keep an eagle eye on any side effects from that Methotrexate.

Very warm and sunny here, too. Better watch out for those covered propagators sitting in the greenhouse. This sudden heat can easily dry everything out and/or bake them. Windows and vents open down here.

Dull mainly with sunny spells but a very cold lazy wind, there was frost forecast but didn't happen. We are desperate for rain as so far this month we have only had 0.05", not enough to wet the ground. so much for April showers. Now I have said that it will start and forget when to stop. Still we keep going and being on sandy soil doesn't help. Like all gardeners I want rain on this bit, sun on this bit, I'm sure you all know what i mean, never happy. Love it though. Happy gardening
