thanks,Hveragerthi, for the info on reducing uric acid. I suffer from gout and becoming a vegan did not affect my getting it.
I heard of cherry juice but not the other things.
Also,aMn, Dr Jensen in his bowel cleansing book talks about when the toxins cannot comer out the bowel (and I would assume the bladder due to kidney malfunction) then they will try to come out the skin.
While this may not be what you had, here are some pictures (1-7) on a case history in pictures and what bowel cleansing did to heal.
