Itching

Jean,

I experience itching also. It seems to happen when my DC is progressing. I asked the doctors about it and they said it wasn't a symptom. They had no suggestions.

Cortisone

You should ask for a cortisone infiltration. It will reduce your itching.

Itching

Your itching is probably caused by collagen trying to do its healing job. Instead it is exacerbating the D/C.

itch pain and other topics

I'm a physician with DC. I've consulted ,any surgeons and rheumatologists. Some have the audacity to tell me I'm wrong when I say it hurts, and itches and involves forearms and shoulders and hips, the smarter ones learn.
I had collegenase 3 years ago, it's magic. Keep nodules under control with triamcinolone, a must to stop progress. And I see so much research is being done on tissue factors that may be involved, with many possibilities of control, some of which I may try. Such as enbrel.
It surprises me nobody brought such stuff up on all these messages. There must be someone who tried such stuff. Also I take tetracyclines that soften collegen as a side effect.

Triamcinolone????

Dr. Ivan,

Thanks for the post. *Please* tell us more about *triamcinolone*. Prescription Only? Dosage? How administrated.

(What!!! You say some docs have the *audacity* to tell some of us we don't know what we are talking about? Let it never be! :)

how helpful?

Are any products mentioned helpful for foot problems? I would be willing to try most anything. Well if it is within some reason. My foot is a mess itchy swollen and has about 5-7 gross lumps in the arch. Also under second big toe I have recently grown a rather sensiive protusion, hurts to walk I am not old but if I can't atleast exercise I will lose all my fair looks -GAING WEIGHT- sounds a little self absorbed but HEY I'm a woman want to look my best and feel better. Was quoted $650.00 for a pair of shoes that may or may not work. Any foot good result stories???

Triamcinolone Acetonide Injections

This subject was introduced about mid February this year by Michael. This under the subject title 'Triamcinolone' and contains quite good information on this subject. I have been keen to seek further info. Does anyone know the cost of this product and frequency of shots recommended?

triamcinolone acetide (Kenalog)


Actually, a better thread for learning about triamcinoline acetide (brand name Kenalog) injections is the one entitled 'Forestalling Contracture'. It includes valuable comments by Dr. Keith Denkler. - MML
