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" ...

New to Accutane
Post a Reply
Hi, I'm a 38 year old female who just started taking 20mg of accutane 3 days ago. I have very persistent, moderate back acne. I have a few questions that I forgot to ask my dermatologist: what is the best lotion/moisturizer that I should use when I start having dry skin? What kind of soap should i use, as i use dial right now? Also, I have read that aquafor is a life/lip this Otc or prescription? And a question for the ladies: did you use liquid foundation while your skin was dry and flakey? If so, what kind did you use? I am just trying to prepare myself for the upcoming months. I am scared (bc of all of the horror stories I've read) but also very hopeful for the end result of CLEAR skin! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

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...

Accutane Miracle
1 Reply RSS
I took accutane at 12-13 years old.. I am currently 16 years old with NO side effects and NO reason to hate accutane. This drug saved my life. As a teenage/preteen girl, I went to the pool with my friends and never took my shirt off because I was scared to show my acne covered skin. Now I am confident with my body. I was on accutane for 6 months straight with cystic acne all over my face, back, and chest. Do not listen to the ones blaming accutane for all of your medical issues. People just DEVELOP medical issues. Part of being human beings. This was a miracle drug. Go for it if your acne is bad. You won't regret it. I couldn't say enough great things about it. ## Hello, Hannah! How are you? I'm very glad that this medication worked so well for you. However no, people don...

can't find TRUE ichthammol ointment
3 Replies RSS
I have been looking all over trying to find ichthammol ointment. It does work really well as a drawing agent. NOT these so called "drawing salves" which are useless. Does any one know where to real ichthammol. It has a distinct odor and is black not gray or brown. I used it as a child for boils, spider bites and really deep splinters. Tea bags are what I have been using since I can't find ichthammol. ## Hello, Mortisia! How are you? Have you checked the ingredients on the Drawing Salves? Some of them do legitimately contain Ichthammol, for instance the CVS store brand does. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including skin redness, rash, irritation and dryness. Does anyone else know what other stores carry it? ## The small % in the drawing salves does not do ...

what is betametasona clotrimazol gentamicina cream used for
11 Replies RSS
I live in San Antonio, Texas. Is this cream available in the States? Is it SAFE? ## @ERQ, The combination of Betametasona + Clotrimazol + Gentamicina is marketed towards treating various skin conditions such as pain, inflammation, itching, bacterial/fungal infections, etc. From what I've seen mentioned in another thread here, this cream is allegedly available with your doctor's prescription here in the US. However further reports suggest that it costs only a fraction of the price down in Mexico for the same ointment (i.e. $30 in the US and less than $2 in Mexico). Given this information, my suggestion would be to just get it prescribed in the US since the cost of driving to Mexico and back from Texas is probably a lot more than the difference you'd end up saving in the price...

4 Replies RSS
I just want to know if anyone here have used before the cream Oxyfend? We've found out that my elder sister have genital warts. We skip on using the home remedies as a treatment as what my mother decision. We've been looking for best homeopathic medicine. As I've search over Google, many were preferring for cream Oxyfend as genital warts treatment. Is it effective? ## You should be informed that there is no actual cure for genital warts, but there are medications that can help control them and prevent or treat the symptoms. This is an over the counter product that claims to help with many of the symptoms, but as a natural product that contains a proprietary formula of things such as Salicylic Acid and Green Tea, which they claim are infused with Oxygen, it is not actually pr...

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...
