    Default Disgusting Nanny Statism Fron The Irish Medicines Board!

    I use an over the counter preparation as I get a friction rash from excessive walking on my thighs and ass cheeks! AH! It is extremely painful when it happens!
    I discovered a cream which was brilliant - Lanacane which also contained a coolant and was highly effective when applied to the area after the complaint had nmanifested itself or when used as a pre emptive measure! It really helped me a lot!
    Then it was taken off the Irish market as the coolant was considered an anestheitc! So I was left with using it in powder form - no thanks or using the Lanacane anti-chaffing gel!
    I took the latter and tried to use it preemptively and as I'm over in the UK at the mo, I was doing much more walking about than usual! My ass was red raw after day 1, the gel had not worked! I went to Lyolds in Manchester today where my old life saving cream is freely available over the counter (as it used to be in Paddyland) and for roughly 40% of the price in our great little country!
    I also asked about Oxytetracycline antibiotics which are long term anti-biotics used in the treatment of skin complaints and which have been oddly delisted here (I said it to a physician back home and she was extremely surprised!)! Guess what, available on prescription in the UK!
    I remember the health foood stores going balistic over the removal of St John's wort!
    Basically what are these IMB clowns at?
    Is the pharma industry dicktating something here?
    BTW my ass cheeks are becomming beautiful again!

    Was that really necessary?

    Anyway, it's ridiculous. A friend of mine needs contact lenses. She can get them abroad no problem over the counter but here in Ireland you need prescriptions. The price of them here compared with abroad is farcical and they're made in Ireland!!!

    Have you considered taking a break from talking out your a$$ for a little bit?

    That might help

    That's mad.
    Hope your ass is feeling better.


    Regarding the oxytet antibiotics, the mad thing is they are freely available for us farmers for animal use.

    For once your exclamation marks are justified.

    Go to Spain/Canaries for a week and buy medication at a fraction of the price that you'd pay here.

    Sometmes, I reckon animal health is taken more seriously than human health in particular humans on minimum wage and general low wage employment who have no medical card support for themselves and their children!

    I didn't know you're a farmer.

    This thread has reminded me to write a thread about antibiotic resistance, a massive problem in the future.
    The world is a very puzzling place. If you're not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else's mind.

    It's only partly about the cost, the real issue is why the state through the IMB has deemed it necessary to prevent access!
    My OP is deadly serious!
    Believe me anyone facing the prospect of getting extremely painful red raw ass cheeks would well pay 10 times the UK price of the elixir medicine!

    Am I missing something? How does your @ss get sore from walking? Are you really talking about walking? Or is walking a code word in the gay community?
