Hey you guys. I ate some (over-priced) salmon the other night and it was a little bit raw. I felt sick the next morning; upset stomach, burping and like I was going to throw up; generally unwell. Someone suggested I should induce vomiting. I haven't had success with that in the past, so I didn't try it, but have any of you done something like that for what I assume was food poisoning? What's your technique? What happened?

 

Please also feel free to talk about other ailments and alternative treatments.

One time I got food poisoning from some bad crabs, but it doesn't sound like you've got anything as serious as what I did. I'd just wait it out , if it gets bad enough, go to a doctor. I don't see how inducing vomiting would be helpful a day later. I'm a cock gobbler and I like to gobble cock.

I think I might have diabetes.

My mom had diabetes until she died. We always induced vomiting, and that seemed to work. :^:

You sure? My dad has diabetes. We never induced vomiting and he was fine.

She had lots of diet coke too. I'm sure the two worked in conjunction with each other. You ever hear of synergy?

Not a really an ailment, but a helpful tip:

If you are about to sneeze, press your tongue to the top of your mouth (palate?) strongly. It often stops the sneeze from coming.

 

If you suffer from neck/back pains, try moving your shoulders and neck a bit once in a while. You're usually quite stationary when you are on your PC, for example.

 

Never used this ailment, but my relatives have told this to me:

If you have a sore throat, drink/eat (however it is devoured) some syrup. It covers the throat with coating, which makes it easier and less painful to swallow.

 

Edit:

Well sh*t. Didn't know ailment was the same as disease or an illness etc. according to dictionary. Thought it was healing and such.

My bad. Look at my post for healing then. :)

From past experience if you have proper food poisoning you wouldn't need to make yourself sick.  More like you wouldn't be able to stop yourself.

If you're just feeling a little dodgy and unwell I would suggest some pepto bismol or something similar.

Just a little more information about my recent ailment. I did eat a banana (not the peel) and vomited about 14 hours after I ate that salmon. I also didn't make myself do it.

I find that a shot of any 80 proof liquor is great for sore throats. It disinfects and numbs.

If you are about to sneeze, press your tongue to the top of your mouth (palate?) strongly. It often stops the sneeze from coming.

What also helps me with this is pinching the bridge of my nose or pushing on the little space between my nose and upper lip. It really wards off the sneeze. :)

 

WBaker: Hell yeah. Some whiskey or spiced rum and you're set. 

 

As for the food poisoning, yeah, just throw it up. Harmful bacteria in the food are acting like toxins to your body, and your body's natural reaction to anything poisonous should be to get rid of it, so do yourself a favor and try to vomit. You'll feel better afterwards. 

 

Anyone know of any treatments for eczema? I've had it all my life and it's absolutely horrible. I use lotion every day and drink a lot of water, but my skin gets irritated from just about everything these days.

Have you tried Steroids? I don't know if that's OTC or prescribed.

Nah. I've yet to see a dermatologist or anything, either. I was hoping there were better home remedies that I could try before going that route.

 

I'm just not a big fan of taking any sort of medications for anything, even like Advil for headaches.

Had it as a kid till my mid-teens, it really was annoying. Doctor prescribed hydrocortisone cream which I used consistently for quite some time. It slowly but surely went away.

Neither am I. I had eczema as a kid and they put me on steroids (I think that's what they were), cleared it up for the most part. I think the only way you'll deal with it is by going to the doc.

Yeah, I used hydrocortisone quite a bit as a kid, too, Raavi. Helped a lot. My eczema is much better now, but it tends to flare up in the winter with all of this dry air. It's not particularly bothersome right now, but if it does get bad again, I'll keep that in mind, guys. Thanks!

What about warm milk after throwing up, for an upset stomach? I prefer a carbonated soda and burnt toast. Maybe crackers.

I currently have a cold. I feel like a miserable bastard. I also fell down the stairs to my basement, so I'm sore all over.

Try a sprite with a couple shakes of angostura bitters in it. I am a cock gobbler and I like to gobble cock.

my sister used to have this.

  1. don't use any chemical stuff (ANYTHING) even soap.
  2. try not to touch the sick area. especially with water.
  3. use Fucicort. I'm not sure about Fucidin though.
  4. do NOT clean the sick area. I know the "water" that keeps coming out can be really annoying, but there's no other way. if you really have to clean it, don't press it really strong so whatever what you clean with won't "stuck" with/on the sick area.
  5. try, as much as possible, to not use the sick area (assuming its somewhere on your hands) my young sis used to have this on her fingers so it may differ for you.
  6. most important thing; SEE A DOCTOR. since again. my sister's condition(s) may be different than yours.

One more suggestion, rather than lotion use cooking oil. It's messy as hell but the lipids are good for the skin and do a much better job than lotions.

You know, awhile back, I started taking fish oil supplements for a few months, and it improved my skin drastically. I might go back to that.

 

If that doesn't work, I'll go rob some supermarkets and start dousing myself in cooking oil in the check-out line. ;)

Ha, my brother takes fish oil capsules everyday. It's good for immunity too I believe.

 

I had the misfortune to actually eat the thing however. it was disgusting as hell. My mouth felt like rotten fish.

My brother gave me a challenge to eat two of them for a reward, I did and got the reward. I must say it was worth it but I'm not eating the thing again that's for sure. :p

Ha, that reminds me of how my brother was dared to eat an entire clove of garlic. He reeked of it for a good week.
