(NC) When it comes to our health, there are some issues that people will gladly discuss with you, such as which home remedies are the best cures for the common cold. But other topics are off limits, which can actually prevent us from getting the help and treatment we need. So, here we discuss some of these TMI topics and what you can do about them.

Adult acne. This is mostly associated with teenage years, it can still persist in adulthood, which is difficult to deal with once it develops and can cause a lot of frustration and embarrassment. Its causes are far more complex than teenage acne which makes it even harder to eliminate. Although it’s always recommended to consult your dermatologist for treatment, washing your face daily with a salicylic acid cleanser and exfoliating with a gentle cleanser will help you achieve healthy looking skin.

Bad breath. This subject can be painful to talk about, especially if you’re worried that you’re currently suffering from bad breath. The condition can be caused by several factors beyond poor dental hygiene, including food, tobacco products, medications and health problems. Fortunately, some simple remedies include drinking plenty of water, brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day and replacing your toothbrush every two to three months.

Constipation. Despite being an historically uncomfortable topic, more of us are opening up to talk about constipation, with a recent survey showing 75 per cent of Canadians say they are comfortable talking about it. This is a positive step that can help those suffering from it to feel better. If you have constipation and prefer a gentle remedy, try Senokot tablets. Made from the senna plant that’s known to manage and relieve constipation, the tablets work overnight for gentle relief.
