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 multiple 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, except that it is not protected by a fur. 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.[2] The adjectiv...

accutane long term side effects
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

poslam ointment
old remedy for skin rashes ## Does anyone know where I can buy Poslam Ointment? My Grandmoyher used to have it and it's the best. ## I am also looking for this product. From what I can tell it is no longer made but I won't give up yet. ## I am also looking for Poslam and cannot find a source. Maybe someone should start making it again. 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...

Taking my own Accutane case to court - Need your help
Hi. I am a 34 danish guy, who were on accutane, between the age of 18 and 25. Now, 16 years later, I am still suffering a great deal from psychological side effects from these horrible pills. I am very, very sure of that. And I am extremely motivated to go and collect as much "evidence" together as possible. I could probably list a total of 15 side effects, I still struggle with after accutane. Half of those would be psychological. The worst of those are, anxiety and a "numb" brain. People who have the same after accutane, knows what I mean about having a numb brain. Here is where I really need your help. I am looking for others, who have taken accutane and afterwards has struggled - and more importantly - still struggles with psychological issues. It would be a great help

Accutane - long term low dose regime
Has anyone been on accutane for a long term low dose regime? I read that some people have take only 20-40mg/wk for like 20 years for psoriasis, eczema, and other skin diseases but not for acne. I think I even read someone using ultra low dose regime for oil control. I am considering this treatment. This regime is more common in Europe from what I read. ## What has your doctor advised? Accutane is very hard to get and use, in the U.S. and there is a very good reason for that. This medication contains the active ingredient Isotretinoin and it has been shown to be a severe Teratogen, so it can cause severe birth defects to any future children you may have. Learn more: There are other side effects it can cause that can also be permanent, such as alopecia and IBS. ## From My Experience...ACC...

How is your dad doing? Is he experiencing any symptoms from the low blood pressure, such as nausea, dizziness, extreme drowsiness or shallow breathing? That needs to be checked out, before it can be decided if he should continue the Olmesar AM. He may need to switch to a different medication, if he's experience side effects.

Sulfur & Cream of Tartar Wafer
Years ago, given to each of us once per day for keeping mosquitos from biting & if they bit us, would not cause problems. ## Where can I find Sulfur and Cream of Tarter Wafers? I took them as a kid and never had any problems with bug bites and ticks and we played in the woods every day. As I got older I never had acne. I wanted to have my daughter try it, but can not find them. They were a little flat wafer about the size of a quarter and chewable. The taste was not bad at all....and a somewhat sweet. Can someone help me find this product if it exists? ## Linda, glad to see that someone besides I remembers these wafers. I still have not found them anywhere but I will keep checking smalltowm pharmicies & hopefully locate them somewhere!!! I just know they were wonderful! ## I fou...

quadriderm acne
Can I use this on my acne I have bad acne onmy checks and four head and ive tried everything . Does it work? Is it safe ? Please help im desperate for a cure ## Hello, Mike! How are you? I'm sorry about the acne problem you're having. No, Quadriderm actually would not be good to use for acne. One of its active ingredients is Betamethasone, which is a steroid class medication and they can actually cause acne as a side effect, as well as dry skin and skin irritation. Have you ever tried just a regular antibiotic? Your doctor should be able to prescribe one that may help, if you've exhausted all other remedies. Some acne is bacterial in nature and Doxycycline is often prescribed to help treat it. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and non-allergic sk...
