magic mix cream
1 Reply RSS
There was a cream that was applied to the buttocks area for a patient who had thin skin. It worked wonders on her. How do I get this cream? ## Hello, Janie! How are you? Unfortunately, I can't say. The ingredients can vary from area to area. It is something that is specially ordered by the patient's doctor using FDA approved medications. It is made by a compounding pharmacy, according to the prescribing instructions of the doctor. Some will include topical pain medications, nerve medications, antibiotics, steroids, and etc. It is entirely up to the doctor, the patient's condition, and their response/reactions to various medications. Were there any details on the label? If so, you might be able to ask your doctor about prescribing something similar.

I have abscesses underneath my armpit
1 Reply RSS
For the past couple months I have had these things form underneath my right armpit. They get really big and are full of white and yellow puss. It's just underneath one arm. If anyone knows why this is happening please tell me! ## Such issues are usually caused by an infection and an antibiotic is required to eradicate the bacteria. The FDA lists the typical side effects of antibiotics as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. How often do they occur? Have you change anything in your hygiene routine, recently, such as your deodorant, shaving cream, razor, or etc.? I used to get them from a certain deodorant I used, but the problem stopped, when I threw it away.

Quadriderm nf, psoriasis
1 Reply RSS
Is Quadriderm nf good for psoriasis? FYI, yes I do see a dermatologist for it. I'm just wondering if this would work as well? ## There is a chance that it might, but it can also worsen some skin issues, so it should not be taken, unless your doctor approves. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including skin redness, irritation, and flaking. What other medications do you use to treat it?

4 Replies RSS
Have severe burnt lips for over two weeks from tropical sun. Can I use this ointment for the lip (.05) ? ## Hi Don, Sorry to hear about what happen to your lips. Regarding the Clobetasol propionate ointment, this is a corticosteroid used to treat severe inflammatory skin conditions as well as various skin disorders, ranging from eczema to psoriasis.

You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Clobetasol Details Hopefully being in the setting of a lush tropical environment was totally worth it in the long run ;) ## hi sir i got eczema on my hands and face ,i consulted ...

10 Replies RSS
i took the first tablet of trust pill on the third day of my menstruation so i would like to know if that's okay and if not what is the side effects?..pls i need an answer ## Hello, Pheobe! How are you? Unless your doctor says it wasn't okay, all should be fine. However, if you start on the third day, or later in your cycle, then it will take 7 days to reach its full level of efficacy in your body to prevent pregnancy. That means that if you engage in intercourse, you'll need to use a backup method of protection, until you have taken them continuously for a full 7 days. Is there anything else I can help with? ## im good verwon,thanks thank u so much for giving time to read and answer my question helps me a lot and its a relief... ## I take my pill 6 days after my menst...

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?

Isn't this taken for getting rid of acne and what shouldn't be eaten if you're on this? ## Hello, Liz! How are you? Yes, the FDA classifies Doxycycline as an antibiotic and the low dose is something used to treat bacterial acne. You shouldn't ingest any dairy products within one hour before or two hours after taking it, because they may affect the absorption of it. The typical side effects for this antibiotic may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Accutane long term effects
20 Replies RSS
I'm a 49 year old male who took accutane in the late 80's not too long after it's FDA approval. I took two heavy courses of accutane and it did stop the cystic part but I still had acne problems. I also noticed my body has acted different since I took accutane. I get the IBS out of the blue, then it goes away as quick as it starts. My skin goes through periods of the acne trying to return then stopping for a few months. Now I have suffered my 3rd clonic tonic siezure in 11 months, no family history of seizures, never had a seizure before, and I'm taking Keppra to keep seizures from happening. I knew taking massive doses of a synthetic vitamin could cause problems, but seizures, IBS, arthritis and this damn ringing in my ears, is too much......I'm on the older side of...

accutane long term side effects
1886 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...

Accutane and Infertility
606 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 duofilm be used for genital warts??
10 Replies RSS
i am trying to find a affective cure for genital warts dose duofilm work and wat are some outher cures and some advice ## Duofilm is a topical Salicylic Acid preperation said to help with warts, corns and calluses. However, it is not recommended to try it for other uses, such as genital warts, unless your doctor has said it is okay. It can cause some pretty bad reactions and skin irritation. Genital warts are caused by an HPV virus, that said, there is NO CURE for them. There are medications that can help treat and prevent future eruptions of them, but you cannot completely get rid of this virus and will always run the risk of infecting someone else if proper steps are not taken for protection during sex. That said, the best advice you can be given is to always use protection, IE: condo...

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?

22 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...

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.
