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
479 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...

Can you please ID this pill and tell me what it does thanks ## Hello, March! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 5mgs of Lisinopril. The FDA classifies this medication as an ACE inhibitor that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, stomach pain and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

accutane and birth defects
9 Replies RSS
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 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...

What is the difference in the Ichthammol you buy from the vet and the Ichthammol you buy from the drug store? ## Hello, Monk! How are you? Most likely there isn't any difference. Many of them are exactly the same and even made by the same manufacturers. That's why you can take veterinary prescriptions to your regular pharmacy to have them filled. You just shouldn't take anything limited to just veterinary use, or give your dog anything that's not intended to be used in canines. This one is usually used topically, so the most common side effects, in both canines and people, may include skin redness, irritation, dryness and rash, as listed by the FDA. Is there anything else I can help with?

Buro Sol discontinued?
49 Replies RSS
I went to my pharmacy today here in Canada to be told that Smith Kline Glaxo is no longer making Buro Sol. Is this the case and, if it is, what are my alternatives? ## You mean the antiseptic powder? Unfortunately, since it's never been available in the U.S., I can't find much information on it or why it was discontinued. I can't even find a listing of the ingredients. Learn more antiseptic details here. Did you try asking a pharmacist if they can recommend an alternative? I would, but I'm not sure what's available in Canada. ## I currently am using Buro-sol powder with water to make solution. I live in a town west of Toronto Canada and its available here in most if not all the pharmacy's. some are now keeping the powder behind the counter but others have it with...

Grateful for feedback

I am so happy to find this site. I have read many negative things about accutane and from many close friends some serious side effects from the drug. Sadly even a suicide. I took my 15 yo son to a dermatologist today to see if there were some treatments for scarring. I explained to her that I was NOT interested in accutane. She treated me like some uneducated mother who was causing her child long lasting distress from scarring. She brushed off the side effects and continued to tell my son how unhappy he would be if he didn't take accutane. That it would effect his future and his life in a negative way. I am infuriated, he has never been overly concerned about his acne. So angry. It was nice to come here for reassurance about my decision. I appreciate people taking the time to speak ...

fluocinonide cream 0.05 what is it used for
2 Replies RSS
Can Fluocinide cream 0.05 be used around the rectum for itching? ## Hello, Sharon! How are you? You should not use it for that, unless your doctor has specifically prescribed it to treat it. There are some other conditions that this steroid may worsen, if they are what's causing the itching. What was it prescribed for? ## I used it for hemorrhoids (only on the outside) and it makes hemorrhoids go away fast.
