My gums started bleeding and hurting more with Plackers flossers since regular floss does not go as deep and is not as easy to move left and right. It is the floss that comes on a disposable pick.
From my experience, I do not think a dermatologist is the right doctor for us. They were not taught enough in school to help us. I am reading books about nutrition that state you probably know more about nutrition if you research on your own than doctors since they were not taught much about it in school. That is why it is better to see a nutritionist. I feel the same way about dermatologists- whatever our problem is (immune system related or whatever) they were not taught enough about it. And many dermatologists do not know that Psoriasis can be caused by gluten sensitivity.
