My age is 22 years and I have been experiencing hair loss since two years but was ignoring it. I thought it was some transient thing and would go away with time. Recently I visited a Dermatologist as the hair loss/thinning and she has prescribed me tugain 10% along with androanagen and follihair tablets. She has also asked me to get blood tests done. I had B12 deficiency for which she has given me nurokind plus plus (syringe once in a week for 4 weeks). I have been using this prescription from past 3 weeks and my hairfall didn't stop rather It has increased considerably.

I'm 40 y/o now. My Gynecologist prescribed me with conzace cap H3O. I had my surgery for endemetriosis and mioma last June 3, 2008. What are the good and bad side effects of Conzace cap H3O? ## I was unable to find any information regarding Conzace, since it is not manufactured in the US. They are made in the Philippines, and are vitamins used a dietary supplements, and not drugs. Since these are vitamins, it is hard to determine the side effects.

Please post back if you have any more information to add so I can further assist you. ## Can this vitamin make menstruation irregular?

Vitamin A poisoning
1 Reply RSS
What is Vitamin A made of? Can it cause poisoning? ## There are actually several things it may be derived from, so it depends on which supplement you purchase. It is also naturally available in many foods. And yes, it can cause toxicity, but only if someone takes extremely large amounts, so one should never exceed the recommended dosage or RDA, as listed by the FDA. Is there anything else I can help with?

Comfortine Ointment
7 Replies RSS
I am trying to find out where I can buy Comfortine Ointment. It is a Pink thick cream sold in a jar or tube. It use to use it for diaper rashes or sores and it was very good. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it. ## Do you remember when was the last time you came across this product? Have not had any luck finding it either. It's too bad when good products are discontinued or suddenly disappear. From what I have gathered this ointment contains Zinc Oxide + Vitamin A + Vitamin D (from Cod Liver Oil) as the effective ingredients. There are other topical Zinc based ointments out there, but none with that exact formulation. Another possibility would be to see if a pharmacist could create a custom compound based on those ingredients. Has anybody else had any luck finding this or a...
