think c.o.p.d affects the brain!!!

Here I go again..went to g.p. got my pills . decided about fourish I would have a shower and go to bed with a good book . got new bottle of aveeno and noticed on chemist's label it stated apply 3 times a day.I have been using it as a shower cream before and thinking it was rubbish. better explain.... when I started on uniphyllin I came out in a terrible rash. the g.p. gave me epaderm to wash with. used it and told him on next visit my shower cloged up could I have an alternitive.he prescribed aveeno .I assumed it was to wash with.I telephoned chemist, and when he had stopped laughing, he reminded me to read the labels.I think I am going do lally. thank goodness it wasnt a drug. I think I will just go to bed. I am safer there.

    never read instructions......

  • Hmm 0

  • That is really funny thanks for the laugh! :)

  • Very amusing - but did it help the rash??????????????

  • Ha Ha , yes i know what you mean , i do read the instructions but then get either mixed up or forget lol . There are some lotions for skin that are both a skinn cream and a shower wash , SILCOCKS BASE , EMOLIENT MOISTURISER BY OVELLE , is the one the hospital gave me for skin reaction . I don't use it though as it has PARABENS in which are linked to cancer , i am going to look deeper in to that though as sometimes it is only certain types that cause it . Hope all goes well and the rash clears up xx . xxxx Dinny xxxx

  • :-D :-D You are not on your own I took double thyroxine for about a month before realising, thankfully no bad effects. I am a bit more careful now.

  • Ah, thats just reminded me, I too went out the other night - complained about the meal to the Restaurent owner, he asked what was wrong with it, I said, "At least my Mum's Gravy MOVED " ! - he looked horrified ........ Vittorio.
