Skin Care Overview

The human skin is the outer covering of the body. In humans, it is the largest organ of the integumentary system. The skin has up to seven layers of ectodermal tissue and guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs.[1] Human skin is similar to that of most other mammals. Though nearly all human skin is covered with hair follicles, it can appear hairless. There are two general types of skin, hairy and glabrous skin (hairless).[2] The adjective cutaneous literally means ...

Taking another pack after finishing the 21 pills
3 Replies RSS
Hello, i just want to ask, is it ok to take another pack after finishing tge 21pills? I did not follow the 7 day free pill. The purpose of taking the pills is for my acne breakouts and thinking that it could help regularized my mens. Is it normal to have a delayed mens since this is my first timee to use the product? I am just curious if its safe or what. Or the 7days free pill must be followed?? Looking forward for your reply. Thank you. ## The 7 days free is what allows you to have a period, when taking oral contraceptives, according to the NIH. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, spotting, irritability, and PMS-like symptoms. Thus, it is best to take those 7 days off. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi! I also have question about nordette pills. I f...

Have severe burnt lips for over two weeks from tropical sun. Can I use this ointment for the lip (.05) ? ## Hi Don, Sorry to hear about what happen to your lips. Regarding the Clobetasol propionate ointment, this is a corticosteroid used to treat severe inflammatory skin conditions as well as various skin disorders, ranging from eczema to psoriasis.

Accutane and Infertility
597 Replies RSS
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...

It's very effective for skin problems. ## when I googled poslam, I was offered link to ebay, antique- bottle pictures show ingredients. ## Poslam used to be made by Emergency Laboratories, Jersey City, NJ 07302. I tried to find them in on-line phone directories but they don’t seem to exist any more. A pharmacist passed along this formula to my parents. A compounding pharmacy should be able to make it up. I don’t know if it is paten...

debridement ointment ## I have a large wound on my left ankle. It started out as pressure ulcer and I was using hydrocortizone for the itching.
