Every time I shave my legs, I get itchy, red bumps. How can I get rid of them and how can I prevent them?
In order to take care of shaving-related irritations, it's important to know the underlying cause of inflamed bumps. Razor burn, which results from improper shaving techniques, can create a rash-like appearance that usually fades on its own after a few days. On the other hand, it's possible that those razor bumps are the result of ingrown hairs, which are also referred to as pseudofolliculitis barbae.
When shaving, make sure you use a gentle hand. If your problem is simply razor burn, you need to make a few adjustments to your shaving routine in order to reduce irritation and inflammation. To start, soften the hair by soaking your legs for several minutes in warm water. Invest in a moisturizing shave gel-soap doesn't cut it-and lather the shaving area completely. Let the lather sit on the hair for a minute before proceeding.

Is there any other way to get rid of a migraine that has been going on for 66 weeks and 24/7? I have been to 5 different doctors and still no one can tell me why it wont go away? I am on Topamax and Zomig for the migraines.

Thanks for your time.. Jeanette.

Fluid-filled sacs that develop behind the knee are called popliteal cysts . They can be hard to get rid of and come back repeatedly after treatment. They often have thick, twisted roots that go deep. Two doctors from South Korea report on the use of arthroscopy to remove large popliteal cysts. The study included 14 patients with cysts that caused loss of knee motion, pain, and pressure on the nerves. These patients were compared to a control group of eight patients with the same condition who had open surgery instead of arthroscopy. In arthroscopic cyst removal, the doctor inserts a long, slender tool into the fluid-filled sac. A tiny TV camera on the end gives the doctor a good view inside. Fluid is removed from the cyst. Using a small, motorized shaver, the cyst is then shaved away. Doctors are careful to keep the shaver pointed away from nerves and blood vessels. During the operation any flaps, thick bands, or other fibrous membranes are removed. Surgeons check the knee joint for other...
