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 most of the other mammals skin, 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 tw...

Where can I buy epitrel?

I used to buy epitrel cream on Amazon but it isn't there now. Where can I purchase it? ## Please let me know the cheapest place online to purchase the product? ## Was this originally an over the counter product? Other threads on this site have listed the active ingredient as Tretinoin, with a US-based equivalent of Retin-A. However, I did search on Amazon and there is a sponsored product which says "compare results to Retin A or Tretinoin", so maybe that could be of some use?

Sulfur & Cream of Tartar Wafer

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...

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...

Iluvien for DME

Has anyone had iluvien insert for Diabetic Macular Endima? What was your criteria to go for Iluvien vs other treatments? ## Hello, Chris! How are you? Inluvien is approved for us in patients who have previously tried a course of corticosteroids and had no significant rise in intraocular pressure. One provides sustained treatment for 36 months. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including cataract formation, optic nerve damage, visual field defects and secondary ocular infection. Has anyone used this that can chime in? ## How many ILUVIEN shots can I get in one eye? I heard that the capsule does not dissolve and remains in the eye forever. I have had just one implant so far and it will wear out soon. It's been almost 3 years since I received it.

Omnacortil 60mg side effects

My sister is suffering from hypereosinophilic syndrome since 25/3/2014. She has taken omnocortil 60mg for 20 days & now she is taking 50mg for a week, but later on the dosage has to be decreased to 40mg and 30mg weekly. Currently, she is having some face swelling and weakness so plz guide us. ## I have been suffering from acute colitis for 3 years with no solution. Please advise whether omnacortil can help? ## Those can be normal side effects of this medication, and it is always best to follow a doctor's instructions. And no, this is a steroid class medication that can actually cause acne as a side effect. according to NIH reports, such as nausea, weigh gain, and fluid retention. How are you both doing, now? Are you on any other medications? ## I am taking omnacortil for 6 month...

Soravil Cream

It is a cream for psoriasis, looking for more details. ## I have tried Soravil and was sooo disappointed. The woman on the phone had me sp excited and enthusiastic about this product. It did not work at a matter of fact it dried it out and made it itch even more. Plus, It stung soo bad. Not worth the money at all. DO NOT BUY ## Its worked wonders for me for decades. It does work for some people. when nothing else does. you have learned we are all different, dont discourage a treatment to the masses just cause it cant help you. be an adult and care about the others suffering as you do and allow them to try to find what will help them even if it didnt help you ## I was sure I had leopracy - never had psorasis till after 60. I just want to say that this is really expensive and not...

Unexplained bruises and itching

For months I've been experiencing itching which causes scabs and unexplained bruises that won't go away. What kind of over the counter medicine should I use? ## Hello Lucy, Sounds to me like you need to take a visit to your primary care physician to see what the possible cause could be. I had a family member who was had the same thing happen and when they finally went to the doctor they found out it was because they were thrashing in their sleep. Ultimately they had to do a few sleep studies to find out what was causing the sleep issues. I'm not saying you have the same problem, I'm simply saying it's best to talk with your doctor on the subject to find the root cause rather than treat the symptoms. Keep us updated.
