Customer Question
I have had incredible...

I have had incredible itching in my armpits and along the outside of both breasts for several weeks. I'm using no new products, but I feel like I'm going to scratch my skin open. Any ideas?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

It's been going on for about 3 weeks. No new products used, no new meds except I was approved for medical marijuana around the same time.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I'm a paraplegic (35 yrs). My pain dr & I have been decreasing my morphine since I've been on it so long with no real ease of my chronic lower back pain (neuropathic). That's why we started with the medical marijuana

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
