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 up to seven 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 (hairless).[2] The adjective cutaneous literally means ...

Kenalog Inj. and hair loss
1 Reply RSS
I experienced a severe adverse reaction of 75% hair loss after having a Kenalong inj. to my thumb on 3/1/17. Stay away from this poison! I had to buy a wig; and my hair is still progressively falling after the 12 weeks! Dehumanizing! ## That is odd, it is actually used to treat hair loss. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including administration site irritation, redness, dryness, and flaking. Are you on any other medications? How long after receiving it did the hair loss start? How old are you?

How to use Reacel-A cream
1 Reply RSS
I bought Reacel-A Tretinoina Crema .05g/100g in Mexico. There aren't any directions. What do I use it for? How much should I use and how often? ## Hi Marci, can you please write back with the list of ingredients (active and inactive)? I can't say that I'm familiar with this product since it's from outside the US. Although if I had my best guess it sounds like the ingredient Tretinoin. When you ask "What do I use it for", what do you mean? I assume that when you purchased it you had a reason? May I ask if you intend to take it for a specific skin condition? I'm guessing that this is an acne cream, is that right?

can you use gelmicin for acne!?
3 Replies RSS
I've been braking out lately and have had many big nasty red pimples so i was wondering if i used this would it clear it up??? ## Hello, Girly! How are you? You shouldn't use a prescription product, if it wasn't prescribed for you and, since this one is not formulated to treat acne, it could actually contain something that might make it worse. Have you consulted your doctor? Are you on any other medications? Has anything changed in your diet or skin care routine recently? ## Can i use Gelmicin to cure stretched ear blow out?: ## I'm black and my acne scars are bad , like.deep in my skin . any request ?

accutane long term side effects
1882 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...
