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. 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 adjective cutaneous literally means "of the skin" ...

ok lang po ba na gumamit ako ng pills para sa pimples ko?? 21 years old ... anu pa po ba ang mga side effect nito?? ## Hello, Pay! How are you? I'm sorry, but I'm having a problem getting a proper translation of your post, so please feel free to let me know if I don't answer all your questions. Yes, oral contraceptives are sometimes used to treat hormonal acne in women.

When referring to Santly collagenase ointment what is meant by " and help to facilitate the spread of gas gangrene"?
2 Replies RSS
When referring to Santly Collagenase ointment what is meant by " and help to facilitate the spread of gas gangrene" ? "Collagenases are enzymes that break the peptide bonds in collagen. They assist in destroying extracellular structures in pathogenesis of bacteria such as Clostridium. They are an exotoxin (a virulence factor) and help to facilitate the spread of gas gangrene. " ## Hi Robert, Based on my research, I believe that "to facilitate the spread of gas gangrene" means that this product is intended to treat a Gas gangrene infection. The ointment must stop the spread of the infection and kill the bacteria. Gas gangrene is rare in the United States. The condition is most often caused by a bacteria called Clostridium perfringens. However, it also can be cause...

1831 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...

Men use Althea pills for Acne Treatment only
4 Replies RSS
Is it okay if I use Althea Pills eventhough im 17 years old and im a boy, just to treat my pimples? is there a side effect on me? ## Hello, Del! How are you? No, they will not do anything for you, except cause problems. These are hormonal based contraceptives that are formulated for women, so the doses in them are far too high for men, unless they want to start developing female characteristics, such as breasts, losing chest and facial hair... you get the picture. You need to consult your doctor and get something appropriate for you to use to treat your acne. What have you tried, so far? ## my acne problem started when i was 14 years old and i tried so many products for acne and creams for my face, and i already visited dermatologist but nothing of those recommended cure for my acne did...
