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...

Propysalic Ointment For Psoriasis
info about Propysalic Ointment For Psoriasis ## My husband is suffering from psoriasis more than eight years.Is there any cream ,body lotion or ointment to get rid of this condition. ## Psoriasis is an immune disorder, so there is no cure per se, the condition can only be managed as best as possible. Learn more Psoriasis details here. From what I have found, Propysalic is listed as being a high potency ointment that contains the steroid Clobetasol coupled with Salicylic Acid. Learn more Clobetasol details here. Learn more Salicyclic Acid details here.

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 After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

Accutane and Infertility
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...

ichthammol expiration
Is there an expiration date for ichthammol ointment? I can't find any on the box or the tube. I've had it for quite a few years. ## Hey Dot, How's it going? From what I could gather, the shelf life of ichthammol is reported to be 2 years. And while I'm not aware of ichthammol becoming toxic or unsafe to use after that point in time, lots of meds like this can gradually become less effective, depending on storage/temperature conditions. I hope this helps! ## Thank you David, for your information on ichthammol ointment. .

where to find epitrel cream
I have a tube of Epitrel and I love it, I use on my brown spots. Where can I find it? ## Hello, Sandy! How are you? Epitrel contains Retin-A, so it is only available via prescription in the U.S. It is most commonly prescribed to treat severe acne, due to the risks it causes of skin burning, drying and possible scarring. Is there anything else I can help with?
