Talking of all things illness related. My children have never had nits. Touch wood. Touch wood. I used to always wash their hair with tee tree oil and double platt my daughter's hair. I like to think this has done the job. However, they have all had something that was never around when I was at school but, by all accounts, is very common if you google it. I am talking about Molluscum Contagiosum. Its just an awful thing to get rid of. My son first got these pearly spots (they look a bit like warts but are white hard spots) on the back of his legs over a year ago. I thought they were from cycling but as they didn't disappear I took him to the doctors who printed out the sheet on the subject. If you go to the doctors they will tell you they are harmless and will go away of their on accord. They can take up to two years to go away!! I firmly believe he caught it at his old school where he was in a manky old hut. Luckily there were only about 15 of them and to get rid of them you have to squeeze them. My son did this and they cleared up very quickly once he had. You have to make sure you get the white stuff out and onto a tissue as these buggers multiply.
|I have purchased this from Amazon but the crushed up tablets have worked also|
I'm writing this as I want to tell anyone who has had to treat a child for these spots is to get Apple Cider Vinegar. You can buy it in liquid form which I have coming my way but you could also do what I did. Its worked for us.
In other news, I completed 5 x kettle bell workouts, 1 x swimming (34 lengths) and 1 x 30 minute bike ride with my eldest which involved lots of little hill climbs. So a big giant tick for exercise this week. Food and drink = average. I will start to track everything again etc after my two weeks off and throw myself into July.
My sister, Ness, is due to give an update on her low carb diet which heavily involved eggs! I look forward to reading her update.
See you soon.
