You moan away julie,

i always get thrush off antibiotics, when i go for them i tell the doctor that i need something for thrush too.

I dont know how long impertigo lasts but i know its not nice so i hope it clears up pretty soon for you.

Its a good job someone noticed you put carpet cleaner in the cups lol. And shop lifting haha, i used to hang stuff off my pram and forget i actually walked out of the shop once and noticed when i crossed the road and they were just comming to get me. I was so showed up lol.

hugs, kel xxxx


Hi Julie yes have a good old moan we all need it at times!! I can remember getting impetigo as a kid but for some reason only got it on my bum!!! can hear my mum now saying "dont sit on the loo seats" nearly fell when I tried to hover & still cant do it!! Dont think I have got so bad as putting carpet cleaner in cups,but I did spray my bedding with shower spray last week instead of fabric fresh!! & I never said anything to hubby!! So we all do silly things & your not on your own. love & huggles xx


Hi ginge sorry your not to good. The only thing that gets rid of thrush for me is the combine tablet and cream. As for impitigo our 18 month granddaughter picked it up at nursery. She had antibiotic cream and was cleared in about 10 days. Mind you she did'nt have any other problems like we do which meas things take longer to get better. I hope it will be gone for your hols and you have a good time soft hugs xx


Hi Julie sorry ur not 2good i keep 4getting 2 put sugar in mine & bf's t & i went 2 put dirty washing in washer but opened the cupboared door & ive gone 2 freezer 2 get milk good job we can all c funny side of these things pmsl x Gentle hugs 2 u all x


I find that eating live plain yoghurt helps with thrush. Especially the full fat greek style ......yum yum yum....I love it so any excuse x
