I've been a vegetarian for 20 years I have rarest blood type I'm a slim body type, I do yoga I'm highly intutive and hypersensitive . I was in Asia for one month three month prior with respiratory , ear infection, ear ache and 10 raging fevers. I was sick for 45 days overall. After my return I would get these small raised painful cystic like bumps on my chin and sometimes on my face that would raise up and then go away. I thought blood toxicity so began drinking turmeric to stop it which it did for awhile but it still comes back but with less frequency . I had my hormones checked all came back normal. Anyway this where the story takes a turn I went for a routine visit to the doctor they gave me a nerve block a shot for numbing close to my nose for simple procedure which I've had before...a shot of ephirine and lidocaine few hours later my nose turned blue began to swell 24 hours later the tip split from the swelling ...several white blister with pus appeared on one side of the nose as soon as you touch them they would pop and bleed. The skin was bright red. The ER gave me predinose and antibiotic for bacterial infection, There was no itching, the top layer of skin gone...it was gross, scary and shocking. The doctors were speechless and stunned. All staph MRSA, Shingles, Chicken Pox Herpes Simplex Virulex, Malaria all tests negative the next phase was biopsy ...all negative again. I took acyclovir which was like to the slow train to China, It did nothing so I left there the and I hired three other doctors that worked in more state of the art... cutting edge facilities One prescribed Valtrex which my other provider does not carry because it is too expensive but Valtrex worked. However it is unclear if my body was just on its way to healing. Valtrex gave me edema, fuzzy vision and burning stomach, loss of appetite. So my new chinese doctor gave me tonic to clear my liver and try to stop the infection faster . The tonic opened up all the blister in three hours and they began to heal . He suggested fasting on beet juice, bok choy and cilantro juice in the evening which did wonders for my skin healing, the tip of my nose miraculously healed, I also wear a band-aide because you do not want any sun exposure on your skin or it will cause permanent scarring. I did some research on scars and found that this doctor did research and found that Helichrysum and
Rose Hip seed oil to stops scar formation ( the pharmaceutical co. would like to patent this but of course they have encountered obstacles. The doctor that seemed like a young einstein told me that my tissue had died from the injection and an raging infection was there and it needed to be stopped now. The clinical appearance looked viral That doctor was an MD/ND mixed the medicine to heal my skin right there in sterile container and prescribed Valtrex for some serious skin penetration she was right . Her assertion seemed the most plausible However after stopping the antibiotics two small blisters reappeared I created a pasted of lysine and hydrogen peroxide and that seemed to lessen there size by 75% .... Now I've been referred to Infectious disease. Anyhow they are still stumped ...My nose has come a long way most of the blisters are gone and the skin has regained its color but is still bruised and red marks I'm still soooooooooooo freaked about the whole ordeal and this is the sixth week:confused:

  • Make sure you tell the infectious disease specialist that you traveled to Asia. You may have picked up something while there.
