IDerma products - My Maintenance

Because of these products, I feel flawless again. I am moisturized from head to foot. No more itchiness and good bye dryness. I don't have to take any antihistamine drug to stop or control the severe allergic symptoms.

Thanks to I Derma Skin Clinic located at Suite 908 Medical Arts Tower, The Medical City, Ortigas Ave., Pasig City and to Dra Irma G. Tan-Nunez, my sleepless nights are over. I thought there is no treatment to this chronic condition. I tried to follow the advise of another dermatologist to use any ordinary mild soap and lotion but the relief is temporary and the symptoms just keep coming back. I also tried to drink herbal tea to detoxify hoping that I would feel better. Then I realized that the only answer to my problem is : maintenance.
So I follow the instruction religiously and I do hope the attack will be lessened or totally eradicate the symptoms.

We are but
 HUMAN... We are bound

the forbidden than follow rules. We PRAY when we are in agony. We sometimes forget to
when we taste victory. We never realize the value of
until it's gone.

Fixed Drug Eruption

My husband and I thought that it's only a birth mark but every time he has fever, the same spot gets reddish in color and gets even worst as the fever progress. When I visited my dermatologist, I asked her about this condition and she examined KIKO and was certain that fixed drug eruption (FDE) is the culprit.

What is this FDE?
A fixed drug eruption (FDE) is an adverse cutaneous reaction to an ingested drug, characterized by the formation of a solitary, but at times multiple, plaque, bulla, or erosion; if the patient is rechallenged with the offending drug, the FDE occurs repeatedly at the identical skin site (i.e., fixed) within hours of ingestion.
Causes of Fixed Drug Eruption Clearly some sort of allergy is involved but exactly how an FDE arises and in particular why just certain areas of skin are affected, has not been worked out.
Symptoms of Fixed Drug Eruption Fresh lesions are well defined, round or oval patches of redness and swelling of the skin, sometimes surmounted by a b…

Skin Asthma - My Chronic Companion

"Sa dinami-dami naman ng pwede kong mamana sa aking mga ninuno... bkit ito pa?"

Nothing more I can do except to live with it the rest of my life. My severe asthma attacks started when I was pregnant with my youngest. I used to have Urticaria or hives when I was single but when I got married, it evolved into another form of allergy called Atopic dermatitis.

It is a very common, often chronic (long-lasting) skin disease that affects a large percentage of the world's population. It is also called eczema, dermatitis, or atopy. Most commonly, it may be thought of as a type of skin allergy or sensitivity. The atopic dermatitis triad includes asthma, allergies, and eczema. There is a known hereditary component of the disease, and it is seen more in some families. The hallmarks of the disease include skin rashes and itching.

The word "dermatitis" means inflammation of the skin. "Atopic" refers to diseases that are hereditary, tend to run in families, and oft…
