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" ...

Sulfur & Cream of Tartar Wafer
91 Replies RSS
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...

Damaged skin.. need help!
Post a Reply
I'm 20 years old.. My skin is very damaged from the sun, tanning beds, acne, and maybe harsh products.. My skin was pretty perfect up until I had my baby. Even throughout my pregnancy I had very nice skin.. I used tanning beds a few weeks after having a bang and it like destroyed my skin.. I never had blotchy uneven red skin until then.. (Sun spots, redness, easily sun burnt, thinner skin, blotchy, acne marks) It's almost a year later and my skin isn't any better.. Why did this happen, what can i do??

Skin problem next to nose - help please!!
Post a Reply
Hi, so I've had clogged pores for awhile which I've been trying to get rid of. I've tried numerous things and they only have gotten a little better but I'm mostly worried about the neck. My skin looks kind of swollen now for messing with them. I purchased a black head extractor to help and I used it kind of hard a couple times as well. I'm worried that there will be scars or my skin will look weird for the rest of my life. If anyone could give me advice it would be much appreciated.

New to Accutane

Hi, I'm a 38 year old female who just started taking 20mg of accutane 3 days ago. I have very persistent, moderate back acne. I have a few questions that I forgot to ask my dermatologist: what is the best lotion/moisturizer that I should use when I start having dry skin? What kind of soap should i use, as i use dial right now? Also, I have read that aquafor is a life/lip this Otc or prescription? And a question for the ladies: did you use liquid foundation while your skin was dry and flakey? If so, what kind did you use? I am just trying to prepare myself for the upcoming months. I am scared (bc of all of the horror stories I've read) but also very hopeful for the end result of CLEAR skin! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! ## I took two courses of ...

use of pulmison 20mg
1 Reply RSS
Hi there, I had a snowboard accident this weekend and hurt my coccyx. Pulmison was prescribed for 5 days, 20mg, 2 in the morning for 3 days and 1 in the morning for 2 days. I don't like corisone and don't want to have more health problems after this. I'm very healthy and fit. My concern is the weight gain and acne and rash as i dont have any of these problems. My question is how likely is it for me to experience these after taking this for 5 days? Or is there a better alternative? Please advise as I'm supposed to start this morning. Thank you. ## Hello, Madre! How are you? It is highly unlikely, those are usually effects that occur with long-term use. The typical short-term use side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia...

mazon ointment

want to use Mazon soap & ointment for itch & skin rash. I am allergic to wheat, wool, chcken eggs & milk. As a child Mazon soap & ointment was used with success. ## Hello, Lois! How are you? I'm sorry about your multiple allergies. Mason Medicated Cream is still available, the manufacturer even has a telephone ordering center, you can reach them at 888-418-2783. The FDA classifies this an over the counter product, so it isn't regulated and its active ingredients are listed as being salicylic acid, resorcinol and coal tar. The only known side effects are skin redness and irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## The massage therapist at my Chiropractor's office, whom I gave a jar of Mazon cream, never complained about skin irritation and itchiness...
