Could be a different process too - but I just knew it as freezing. Very available from a dermatologist. It is a funny thought seeing folks walking around with duct tape on the face. Gloria At 12:11 AM 11/25/2005, you wrote: Gloria, I guess you are tough. On the hands, around the nails or

Well, I've known it as a cure (source of fiber?) for diarrhea - don't know if it works as a laxative too, some things deal with both... For example, homeopathic Nux Vomica is in many cases a solution for both. But lactulose is a solution for constipation (as is vitamin C), and not diarrhea.

Hi Pat - I've had an FELV/FIV pos kitty - Mr. Black Kitty, a real beloved cat. He came into my life skinny and sick, but feisty. Found him in 2001, he died in 2002, a year later. I've also asked about mixing FELV and FIV - and I don't think there's any definitive answer, except that both

I agree about L-Lysine - that stuff works well on Herpes URI. I sometimes usually use 250-500 mg twice a day, and I generally don't worry about overdosing. It's so easy - you can mix it with food, or syringe it with fluid, or use the paste. Great stuff. Gloria At 06:50 PM 12/11/2005,
