Bechet’s Disease


Bechet is another arthritis related health issue which causes you much inflammation and pain, this is not as common as many other arthritis diseases. As all autoimmune diseases this one attacks your body, this is often referred as a syndrome rather than a disease. Most people experience sores and pain from inflammation, with this one your body is attacking your blood vessels.


Inflammation Of The Blood Vessels

This is not contagious, so if anyone you know has this you will not need to fear catching it from them, like most autoimmune diseases there are certain symptoms and treatments you can use to manage this much better.

Immune Suppressive Medications

Corticosteriods Creams & Gels

Mouth Washes

Anti-Inflammatory Medication



Treating Medication Free


I am highly against using medication unless you have no other options, the corticolsteriod creams and gels are an exception but a very expensive way to treat your sores and lesions. The medications I am against are your high dosage pain medications, they have caused me organ damage using them long-term. I did not over use them, still I have organ damage and I just wish to warn you about this possibility since my doctor or pharmacist never warned me your doctor and pharmacist might not warn you as well.
