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" ...

Accutane and Infertility
569 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...

2 Replies RSS
Hi i have pcos problem and my doctor suggested me dronis 30. Morover i m facing the acne problem all throughout my face. My doctor suggested that not only will dronis regularise my periods but will also clean the acnes. I have already taken 11 tablets but i don't see any visible changes with the acne on my face. Does dronis 30 clear acne? If yes after how many tablets will i be able to see a change? Or its not necessarily true that dronis 30 removes acne issues too? Kindly let me know. ## Hello, Sana! How are you? Has there been any change, yet? It can take a few months for this medication to start helping clear up your acne and regulate your periods. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, spotting, and PMS-like s...

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...

Qirstion Regarding Gelmicin
1 Reply RSS
Hello I have a question regarding Gelmicin I have a sinus infection with white spots inside my nose Can I use gelmicin? Please advise me via email Thanks so much ## Hello, Carlos! How are you? There is a chance that the white spots could be a yeast infection, so the Gelmicin may help, but there is also a chance that it could make some conditions worse. Thus, it would be best to consult your doctor, so they can give you a definitive diagnosis of what it is and how to properly treat it. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Gelmicin as possibly including skin redness, irritation, dryness, and acne. Is there anything else I can help with?

I've been taking conzace for about a month now since many claims that it can help skin conditions such as acne, dandruff, insect bites, etc. However, in my case it makes my acne even worse but I'm still taking it hoping that it's just a sign that my body is eliminating toxins from within. Should I stop taking it or not?

ID Pill "Chinta"
1 Reply RSS
Round, Pinkish, has "Chinta" written on one side. From Thailand. Thank you in advance for you help! ## From what I could gather, there is a medication by the name of Chinta that reportedly contains a combination of: Ammonium Chloride + Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide + Liquorice + Vitamin B5 (Calcium Pantothenate). Apparently it is indicated for use in treating dry and itchy skin. Unfortunately I haven't found any other specific details pertaining to the origin or appearance of this medication; but I hope this at least helps to provide some sort of evidence or clues as to what you may have there. Please post back if you find out any additional information.

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...
