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 ...

Accutane and Stomach Problems
Post a Reply
I am 19 years old and was on accutane for 6 months last year, and now am facing some stomach issues. About 2 months after coming off the medication, my body started to change. In the past year I have lost about 20lbs, and am constantly dealing with stomach issues (indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, lack of appetite, acid reflux). I have gone to a couple doctors, had an endoscopy done, but there seems to be no luck. Has anyone had similar issues??? Some weeks/days are much better than others. My skin is completely clear now but my stomach/body has completely changed. Please respond with any similar side effects!!

accutane long term side effects
1889 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 After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

dronis 30 on acne
3 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...

Where can I get acid-mantle creme
6 Replies RSS
I have been trying to find a jar of acid-mantle crème but Doak pharmacies no longer make it. Does anyone know if some one else makes it? ## There's actually another brand I found by the name of "Risabal-ph". They make an acid-mantle creme that's used as a moisturizer for a variety of different skin conditions (including dry, rough, itchy, irritated skin and even goes so far as balancing it's Ph levels). You can find a 16oz jar of it on amazon for around $43. I haven't tried it myself, but after living in such a dry climate for so long, I might need all the moisture I can get. There are also a good number of reviews online if you're looking for more feedback on it. I hope this info helps! ## I have been looking for a jar as well. I can not believe they wo...

Dear sir, I am a 26 year old male from andhra pradesh (india), suffering from pimples & acne for the last 6 years. Please suggest me medicine to get rid of acne & pimples. ## Hello, Prasanna! How are you doing? Well, you need to learn what's causing it. Some types of acne are bacterial and require an antibiotic. But some types may be due to excess skin oils, certain foods you eat, other medications you may be taking and etc. Have you consulted a doctor to have it checked it out?

Expired clobetasol
1 Reply RSS
I want to know if I can use clobetasol cream two years past the expiration date? If so, how well will it work and is it safe? ## When it comes to anything expired, I first want to state that expiration dates in general are arbitrary figures. Just because something expires on a specific day of the year doesn't mean it's instantly ineffective and unsafe the minute the clock strikes that number. However when something is in ointment form and has other excipients that make up its composition, then you also have to take into consideration the shelf life of these substances which may or may not last as long as the primary active ingredient. With that said, I think it all comes down to proper storage and whether you care if the ointment isn't necessarily as effective as it could be...

old remedy for skin rashes ## Does anyone know where I can buy Poslam Ointment? My Grandmoyher used to have it and it's the best. ## I am also looking for this product. From what I can tell it is no longer made but I won't give up yet. ## I am also looking for Poslam and cannot find a source. Maybe someone should start making it again. It's very effective for skin problems. ## when I googled poslam, I was offered link to ebay, antique- bottle pictures show ingredients. ## Poslam used to be made by Emergency Laboratories, Jersey City, NJ 07302. I tried to find them in on-line phone directories but they don’t seem to exist any more. A pharmacist passed along this formula to my parents. A compounding pharmacy should be able to make it up. I don’t know if it is paten...

Accutane and Infertility
607 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...
