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 and Infertility
377 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...

Epitrel Acido compared to Reacel-A?
4 Replies RSS
I have a tube of Reacel-A (Tretinoina Crema .05 g/100g.), which a friend bought for me last year in Mexico. My Dermatologist tells me it is the same thing as US product Retin-A. I have used it for a year and had no problem. My friend this year was not able to find this exact tube in Mexico and bought Epitrel Acido Retinoico Crema .05. My question is: Is this tube just like my last year's tube from Mexico? ## Hi Traveling Lady, Based on my research, the Epitrel Retinoic acid cream you received contains Retinoic acid (0.5 %) as the active ingredient. Retinoic acid is basically the same thing as Tretinoin. This cream may contain different "inactive" ingredients, since it was most likely manufactured by a different company. However, it seems as though the active ingredient is th...

The Ingredients For Bgo Cream Made By Calotabs Co Of Greenville Sc
27 Replies RSS
I am looking for the ingredients of BGO made by Calotabs Co of Greenville, SC years ago. My jar has long been worn smooth and can't read it. ## This product is no longer available, but from another user on our site that was asking about it, the ingredients listed on the packaging were as follows: Salicylic Acid, Sulphur, Zinc Oxid, Phenol Calamine, Menthol, Petrolatum, Lanolin and mineral oil. The only thing I can suggest is trying to find a similar product that contains the same ingredients. Have you tried asking your pharmacist if they can recommend something? ## if you have the ingredients and even a small sample a compound pharmacy can remake it for you! ## I don't know how old your jar of BGO (Beeman's Greaseless Ointment) is, but my father owned the company from the mi...

My local pharmacies to not have this med. I have a prescription and cannot get it filled. When will it be available? ## Hello, Tina! How are you? The FDA classifies this as topical glucocorticoid steroid and it's not commonly used. It might be easiest to speak to your doctor about prescribing an alternative medication that would be easier to find. Another idea is that if you have a pharmacy you use regularly, you could try asking them to order it in for you. Since it is used topically, the side effect are usually related to that and may include skin irritation, redness, itching and acne. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No, Thanks

They are from Mexico a red and white pill, I got them for acne but I don't know what the side effects are, and what it is really for. ## Hello, Jonathan! How are you?

However, you shouldn't take anything that your doctor hasn't prescribed for you. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

excipiente cbp

ingredient in Reacel-A. Tretinoina.What is this? ## Hello, Janet! How are you? That's actually not an ingredient, per se. Excipiente CBP stands for the quantity of inactive ingredients, in comparison to the active, to make up 1 dose of any given medication. This is a Tretinoin ointment that's most commonly used to treat acne, as listed by the FDA. Side effects are typically related to its topical use and may include skin redness, irritation, dryness and rash. Is there anything else I can help with?
