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
1797 Replies RSS
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 After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

tingling feet and toes on anti rejection drugs
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking Advagraf (tacrolimus) 3mg per day and Mycophenalate mofital 750 mg a day for the last 13 months after a liver transplant. I have had tingling in my toes for all of this time. My feet burn, but are not hot to the touch, the feeling in my toes is quite reduced and I also get shooting pays in my feet. I walk ok etc.. but I find it difficult to get to sleep at night without taking painkillers, usually 2 paracetamol. My consultant says it is a small price to pay for a new life. I appreciate that I am now extremely well, but I cant cope with this tingling for the rest of my life! ## Hello, Willow1! How are you feeling? The Advagraf has been known to cause those types of side effects, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, fainting, joint pain and weight gain, as listed ...

Ro-accutane psychological side effects
1 Reply RSS
I'm 18 years old and have been on ro-accutane for a month and a half taking 30 mg a day. The drug got to work pretty much straight away, and I was drinking lots of water everyday to aid the clearing of my acne. Around 3 weeks into taking the drug my mood became very temperamental and although I love my parents I can no longer be in the same room as them for more than five minutes before I have to run off to my bedroom to be on my own. I've become hugely paranoid over somebody I am dating, but feel I am losing my bubbly personality he once loved and we don't speak much these days. I have a good job working in the offices of a good British university, but my concentration is slipping. I agonise over the wording of my emails so much that I give up and forget to reply to colleag...

Psoriasis problem
1 Reply RSS
My wife has been suffering from Psoriasis for the last 4 years but for the 3 months it has been spread out heavily with Red spods on her whole body including scalp. So we are using Propysalic NF ointment. My question is how long will it take remove completely. ## Hello, Govinda! How are you and your wife? Propysalic is listed as containing a steroid, so it may cause some side effects, as listed by the FDA, which could include skin redness, irritation, acne and dryness. It also should only be used for a period of 2 to 4 weeks, if there is no improvement after that, she'll need to return to her doctor to explore other treatment options. There are also no guarantees that it will remove it completely, even if she uses it for a full month. How long will she be using it?

Accutane and Infertility
511 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...

Clobetasol Propionate Cream Usp 05 What Is It Used For
9 Replies RSS
I was given this tube of cream but, whatis it suppose to to do. ## I'm curious as to why someone would give you a prescription based tube of cream without telling you what it was. Bad business... Clobetasol propionate cream and ointment contain the active compound clobetasol propionate; a synthetic corticosteroid, for topical dermatologic use. It is indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. Treatment beyond 2 consecutive weeks is not recommended, and the total dosage should not exceed 50 g/week because of the potential for the drug to suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Please post back if you have any other questions or comments to add. ## I was given this foam and because my scalp sores are...
