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 up to seven 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, and human skin is very similar to pig skin.[2][3] 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 (hair...

Fumaderm - how long for results?
2 Replies RSS Share
Hi. I'm on fumaderm for psoriasis. Been taking it for almost 2 and a half months now (been on 6 full strength tablets a day for almost 3 weeks) and I haven't seen any improvement to my skin yet. The leaflet says results are usually seen around 8 weeks so I'm worrying it may not work for me. Anyone else been on this and had to wait a few months for results? Thanks. ## Hello, Herald! How are you doing? Has there been any change, yet? In most cases, when they give a certain number of weeks for results, they usually mean one steady dose for that period of time, because things can fluctuate, as long as your dosage is still changing. Have you been experience any side effects? The NIH lists the most common ones as possibly including abdominal pain, diarrhea, and flatulence. Are you...

Dry, itchy feet causes and concerns
1 Reply RSS Share
Why are my feet so dry and look like they're getting darker? It looks like broken veins, it's very dry and itchy. It also looks red and sometimes has swelling. ## The swelling might be due to edema, though only a doctor can really give you a definitive answer. Sometimes itching and dryness are due to circulatory problems, according to NIH studies. I've experienced it myself, in the past. They also warn that it could be the side effect of some medications. Do you have any diagnosed medical conditions? Are you on any medications? How bad is the swelling?

what is betametasona clotrimazol gentamicina cream used for
33 Replies RSS Share
I live in San Antonio, Texas. Is this cream available in the States? Is it SAFE? ## @ERQ, The combination of Betametasona + Clotrimazol + Gentamicina is marketed towards treating various skin conditions such as pain, inflammation, itching, bacterial/fungal infections, etc. From what I've seen mentioned in another thread here, this cream is allegedly available with your doctor's prescription here in the US. However further reports suggest that it costs only a fraction of the price down in Mexico for the same ointment (i.e. $30 in the US and less than $2 in Mexico). Given this information, my suggestion would be to just get it prescribed in the US since the cost of driving to Mexico and back from Texas is probably a lot more than the difference you'd end up saving in the price...

Fumaderm Drug Information

What is Fumaderm? What are its side effects? Is it better to take than Soraitain or Methatrexate? ## Hi, I've been on Fumaderm for around two months now and have found the results really good. I still have small patches here and there but the majority has cleared up. I havent tried Soraitain or Methatrexate, but I used to be on Cyclosporin, which I didnt like as it lowered my immune system and I always felt generally unwell and couldnt shake off a cold for weeks! The side effects are less if you slowly build up the dose, I took one 'initial' tablet for a week, then two for two weeks before going up to one 'blue' tablet per day which I've been on now for almost 5 weeks. I have had some side effects but nearly as bad as some others I've heard of. The main one i...

It would be better if you could also mix some menthol oil in this and drink it with warm water after taking meals with lemon.

ichthammol expiration
5 Replies RSS Share
Is there an expiration date for ichthammol ointment? I can't find any on the box or the tube. I've had it for quite a few years. ## Hey Dot, How's it going? From what I could gather, the shelf life of ichthammol is reported to be 2 years. And while I'm not aware of ichthammol becoming toxic or unsafe to use after that point in time, lots of meds like this can gradually become less effective, depending on storage/temperature conditions. I hope this helps! ## Thank you David, for your information on ichthammol ointment. ## I too have the same question and can't find answer from a professional. My CVS 1 oz tube has no expiration date. Can anyone help? ## It does have an expiration date. If you look on the tube towards the bottom you will see the bar code and then at the...

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.

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...

Treatment for bumps on my inner thighs
1 Reply RSS Share
I have a lot of bumps on my inner thighs and the bumps have blood and white spots like puss in them. What might this be and how can I treat it? ## Hi Azzia, Sorry to hear about your situation. Posted below are some questions I thought of that may help narrow down the underlying cause and potentially shed light on some treatment options moving forward. However, if these bumps become more severe or don't go away soon, it's probably best to visit a respected doctor who can evaluate your condition more closely. - How long has this been happening? Or is it only recent? - Do you think it could be an 'STI'? - Have you taken anything recently that you might be allergic to? - Did you recently change laundry detergents? - Did you recently apply any new skincare products in that ar...
