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...

I haven't got periods.....
I was using Yasimin 2 months back last month my doctor told me to change into Adco-FEM 35 due to my acne. Now I haven't got my periods I'm late with 4 days. I'm worried now is it because I changed the pills or I'm pregnent??? And during the month I was also using Duromine. Cos I need to loss sum weight.......Please help. ## It is most likely due to the change of pills, it can happen and is usually nothing to worry about. Unless you missed any pills, you shouldn't have a pregnancy risk to worry about. If you're really scared, then by all means consult your doctor and have yourself checked for pregnancy, but usually this is just a normal thing and nothing to worry about. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Doxytet gor acne
Doxytet green tablets I went to a doctor for acne she prescribed doxytet are they really helping for a skin while I develop to much rash on my face....vomiting everytime I take doxytet and headache. ## Yes, some acne is caused by bacteria and this antibiotic is often used to help treat it. The nausea, can be a normal side effect, it should ease up in a few weeks, as your body gets used to the medication. You may also experience dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. If it doesn't ease up soon, then you may need to return to the doctor and try a different medication. Is there anything else I can help with?

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 birth defects
I am wondering if there are any women who have completed their suggested doses of Accutane and had children later. Have there been birth defects that seem as though they could have been triggered by previous Accutane use? I know there are significant risks of birth defects while actively on the drug, but what about the long-term after-use impacts on reproduction? I wish I could ask some physicians to participate in a long-term, observational study for this but I'd have no idea how to go about it. It doesn't seem like anything is out there on this topic. ## Well, April….what I have to say on the subject is…. Having used sites like this for many years and having read/answered many, many posts there are a lot of people that have taken it and experienced health issues th...

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...
