Hi everyone,
 
I am dealing with bad infection on my hand - infected eczema, they say, antibiotics through an IV on my other hand, having fun... So I was wondering  - my hives may result from bad nutrition, and I don't eat well, so what would you suggest      to 'nourish' my body? is Forvia really all right?
 
Thanks guys, take care
 
too tired to write the list of medications....

you might laugh, but a chewable flintstones if one of the absolute best vitamins you can take!
I dont know if you are a female of childbearing age or not, if you are you need to take extra folic acid. And if you are losing alot of blood, you might want to get an iron supplement.
I take the flintstones wth iron.
Good luck!

Yes, Forvia is a really good multi and is designed for people with UC. I have been taking it now for about 3 years now and I could tell a difference within a month.

I don't think I would rate flinstones even in the top ten list. Too much junk in those. Nothing you take is going to replace bad eating habits. I wouldn't worry too much about a vitamin until I learned how to eat better.

If you had a decent diet I would recommend Super Nutritions line of multi's. Rainbow Light carries a decent one too.

I take One A Day Women's formula. It seems to work well. The forvia sounds interesting too. I'll have to check it out.

Them vitamins are overpriced and they don't even use that good of ingredients. I'd search for something cheaper with basically the same ingredients. Try iherb or vitacoast. They are just using cleaver marketing saying they are made just for colitis, when they are nothing special.

They use dl-alpha, it is a cheap synthetic unhealthy vitamin E, you want d-alpha without the l.

They use Vitamin A acetate, vitamin A from a carotene source is better.

just my two cents

Omega 3-6-9 supplements seem to help my eczema most of the time.
