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 After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

Buro Sol discontinued?
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...

Can accutane cause severe cramps and/or infertility
I took accutane as an early teenager and sense then my period cramps got progressively worse I am 20 years old now and I have been put on prescription pain killers for my cramps. I also have had at least one ovarian cyst. From my research it seems that the two could be linked. I am 100% positive that Accutane made my skin highly sensitive (I must wear sun block every day year round or I burst into flames like a vampire). Could it have also cause my severe cramps? Also, I am in a serious relationship, which has made me wonder if I may have trouble getting pregnant in the future. Does anyone have any knowledge pertaining to this?

Can I relax my hair and use CLobex shampoo? ## Clobex (Clobetasol) is used to treat the itching, redness, dryness, crusting, scaling, inflammation, and discomfort of various skin and scalp conditions. Hair relaxers tend to have so many ingredients (as much as 50 or more) that one would have to check each and every interaction between them and the shampoo in order to know for sure. Having relaxed my own hair in the past, I would be willing to give it a shot and see how your hair reacts. In general however, the hair should remain relaxed for at least a few weeks despite using various shampoos. It could be contraindicating however if the shampoo is for curls and you relaxed your hair to be straight. That would really be the only concern in my honest opinion. Have you tried it yet with any ...
