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
96 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...

Clobetasol Propionate Cream Usp 05 What Is It Used For
14 Replies RSS
I was given this tube of cream but, whatis it suppose to to do. ## I'm curious as to why someone would give you a prescription based tube of cream without telling you what it was. Bad business... Clobetasol propionate cream and ointment contain the active compound clobetasol propionate; a synthetic corticosteroid, for topical dermatologic use. It is indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. Treatment beyond 2 consecutive weeks is not recommended, and the total dosage should not exceed 50 g/week because of the potential for the drug to suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Please post back if you have any other questions or comments to add. ## I was given this foam and because my scalp sores are...

Men use Althea pills for Acne Treatment only
6 Replies RSS
Is it okay if I use Althea Pills eventhough im 17 years old and im a boy, just to treat my pimples? is there a side effect on me? ## Hello, Del! How are you? No, they will not do anything for you, except cause problems. These are hormonal based contraceptives that are formulated for women, so the doses in them are far too high for men, unless they want to start developing female characteristics, such as breasts, losing chest and facial hair... you get the picture. You need to consult your doctor and get something appropriate for you to use to treat your acne. What have you tried, so far? ## my acne problem started when i was 14 years old and i tried so many products for acne and creams for my face, and i already visited dermatologist but nothing of those recommended cure for my acne did...

Accutane and Infertility
549 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...

I have a lot of pimples can i use this for the treatment of acne and for fairness ## Hello, Riya! How are you? No, this contains a steroid class medication, so it could actually worsen acne, as reported by the FDA. Other side effects may include skin redness, irritation and dryness. Have you tried consulting a doctor to see what may help your acne? As to the fairness, do you have dark spots, or are you just wanting to lighten your overall skin tone? ## can i use metacortil-lite two time twice a day if i have pimple problem

Accutane and seizures
20 Replies RSS
I took roaccutane in 1996 and again in 1997. Each time was for around 6 months. I had a 6 minute tonic clonic seizure in August 2011 and another one in January 2012. I'm wondering whether this is related, although it is a big gap. Has anyone else developed seizures 15 years or so after finishing roaccutane? ## YES....I Hate to Even Admit it..But..I have had several Seizures....Some lasting 15 minutes...It is Like being trapped inside a body that will not work..or even perform the simplest tasks....I could see...and realize..I was drueling...but my right arm was contorted..and my left arm was basically rigid....I believe it is About time..We all find a way to form a network...of people...that can compare notes.....More aptly...than on here..Please contact Me. ## I can't say wheth...
