      Hello Sumi I’m afraid your issues are too complex to resolve over the internet. You need to see a doctor local to you for a full examination and medical history to be taken.

      Hello Harry Sorry for the delay in replying. If you play any sports where your arm is raised repetitively, such as swimming, water polo, basketball, cricket, etc, you’ll probably find this is the cause of your shoulder pain. A physiotherapist will be able to asses you fully and recommend exercises to remedy the pain in the first session. Short term relief should be found from applying our Atrogel.

      Hi Josh Although flu is a really uncomforatable experience, I’d be concerned that the virus has allowed a secondary infection into your lungs. If you’re run down or have a compromised immune system for any reason, these chest infections can be good cause to see your doctor, as they can be difficult to shake off. If you have access to any Echinacea, do take it as, while it’s too late to stop the infections taking hold now, you should find you recover better, faster and with less risk of another bug taking hold.
