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. 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 (hairless).[2] The adjective cutaneous literally means ...

is it okay to take trust pill in your 3rd day of menstrual cycle?
11 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...

clobetasol propionate for allopecia areata
2 Replies RSS
I used 0.05% clobetasol tropical ointment for a month for allopecia and its been 2 months since i stopped using it because my doctor asked me to use it only for a month. I'm wondering if i can use it again as my hair didn't stop falling out and the bald patches are growing bigger? Thank you. ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? These steroids have only been shown to have limited success at treating this condition and the creams/ointments are actually the worst. Has your doctor offered any other treatment options? ## Two days back I found a white patch. When I consulted a doctor he said it is Alopecia areata. And he suggested I take clobetasol propionate and salicylic acid. Is this the right type of medication for it? If not, plz suggest me any other appropriate medicine or ointment. Th...

for coughs and asmathic conditions ## From what I was able to gather, I believe Histatussin is a cough medication. It has been very difficult to retrieve any information about this drug. I believe it is not from the USA. Do have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## I used diphenel and my 5 year old had trouble breathing. I am searching for answer when it comes to give him cough liquids ## how do I solve this problem with this breathing . I visited the hospital and doctors and no one was able to tell meabout this breathing side effect ## Well from what I gathered on my Histatussin box was that the active ingredients include: Chorphenamine Maleate - good for Allergies,Nasal Congestion, pruritis of the skin and Sneezing. Ammonium Chloride - used as an ex...

kenolog ruined my life
2 Replies RSS
I had mild psoriasis on my scalp, elbows, and a few on my legs. Within three days of being given an intramuscular injection of kenolog10 my hair began to fall out and I started getting these small dots in various places on my body. My dermatologist swears it is unrelated to my injection, but two months later I am covered head to toe psoriasis, including my face, and I have lost 80% of my hair. I have also been on my period for going on four weeks now. This stuff is pure poison!!! ## Hello, Jackie! How are you? I am so very sorry about what you're going through. Skin reactions like that certainly can be side effects of it, they are listed in the FDA detailed prescribing information, they just aren't very common, so they weren't able to provide a specific incident percentage f...

Kenalog of AA

I discovered a small bald spot on my head in Ausgust of 2017. I went to the dermatologist and received Kenalog shots after the PA looked at it and diagnosed me with alopecia. After the injection, i experienced pain and atrophy. I went back next month to find my spot had grown 2 inches and was almost in tears. She rushed the whole visit and asked if i wanted more injections. Stupidly, i agreed. I was just scared of loosing it all. Now im loosing hair like crazy. I wish i had found all this information and steered clear of the drug! I advise anyone to do some research first, and consider the benefits and risks. Good luck ## Oh my goodness! I am seriously experiencing literally the same exact thing. I literally have a bald spot on the back side of my head from the Kenalog. I really don...

From what I can tell it is no longer made but I won't give up yet. ## I am also looking for Poslam and cannot find a source. Maybe someone should start making it again. It's very effective for skin problems. ## when I googled poslam, I was offered link to ebay, antique- bottle pictures show ingredients. ## Poslam used to be made by Emergency Laboratories, Jersey City, NJ 07302. I tried to find them in on-line phone directories but they don’t seem to exist any more. A pharmacist passed along this formula to my parents. A compounding pharmacy should be able to make it up. I don’t know if it is paten...
