      miniGrokette,

      I had a funky patch of dermatitis (or something) on my knee. I noticed that it started after I knelt down onto a nasty floor (we were gutting a house). I thought I should wash it off, but I forgot. After that I had a circle of dry, flaky, red skin. It stuck around for years, but one thing that helped to sooth it was a Psorzema cream by Derma-e. I tried all kinds of crazy things and that would at least calm it down.

      HTH!

        I just know this.....I have had osteoarthritis of the knees for at least 10 years, and sciatica issues as well as other shooting, throbbing, unexplained pains up and down my legs.....after 2 months of cutting out all grains, and going pretty low carb and higher fat, no processed foods, etc., my knees have never felt better, and I have NO sciatica issues! Hmmmmmm.......I'm pretty sure cutting out grains (cereal, bread, pasta) is the main reason.....
        The life I have today is far better than I deserve.......

              I recently cut most eggs out of my diet and it's made a difference. I started feeling lousy after eating them and pretty uncomfortable in the mornings. The past year I have eaten an absurd amount of eggs and it may have caught up to me.

                Oops, I totally lost this thread.

                Ironically, whenever I have an issue with my face I put egg whites on my skin for about 20 minutes (until it hardens) and then rinse it off. My skin always looks improved even after doing it once. The only other thing I notice is when I'm home visiting my parents and I go to the beach. I swear swimming in salt water has cured pretty much every dermatitis patch after one day of swimming. Maybe I'll make some sea salt water at home and try that.
                Wow, I like this idea. I will try Hymalian sea salt solution on my face to see if it makes the difference. I can't go sugar-free: life's apparently not worth living for me without fruit. Not eating any other sweeteners.

                I also might try a blast from the past: a paste of soaked oats and baking soda.

                So, let me confirm...you apply castor oil to hair, after a few hours rub in an egg and rinse with water. Does all the oil come out? I want to do oil treatments, but am concerned that the oil won't come out without shampoo.
                I found that I can wash it off fine, if I let the egg to soak up for a couple of minutes. I wash it under cold water in the summer even. But, yes, my hair is short and tends to be dry. I would use herbal rinse as add-on if I had problems, I think.

                On the eggs: I find it surprisingly easy to go without. I am either skipping breakfasts, or have leftover meat in broth or a banana mushed with a bit of coconut oil and cocoa nibs.

                    That's awesome especially given they are soo damn good. I just started noticing some intolerance type symptoms lately and it sucks.

                      Instead of adding anti-inflammatory foods, reduce your intake of PUFAs (eggs, salmon, nuts etc) and take aspirin.

                        Those are the foods I have increased dramatically, the eggs and nuts anyway.....and I am seeing anti-inflammatory effects.....maybe its from the 'no grains' part of my diet?

                            my psoriasis got a lot worse when I was drinking daily green smoothies. maybe it was "detox"...however it looked as bad after the smoothies as it did after a night of drinking alcohol.

                            I'm not so sure about "anti-inflammatory" foods... maybe you should aim for foods that are easily digested and absorbed. what works is very individual.

                                Before I found primal (so I can only attribute this to what i did before primal), I had a slight rash across my forehead for years. One facialist I know mentioned in passing that the forehead is the Chinese med. area for the gut/intestines. That's how I started learning about Leaky Gut and then started supplementing w/ L-Glutamine. That really seemed to help solve it and then since primal, no reappearance of it.
