Skin Care Overview

The human skin is the outer covering of the body and 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 it is very similar to pig skin.[2][3] Though nearly all human skin is covered with hair follicles, it can appear hairless.

Mazon Cream

for eczema, psoriasis- seeping, cracking, blistering skin- I personally used it from the age of 6 mos. in 1955 to 1988, then it disappeared from shelves- it was an over the counter cream and it really worked. At the age of 3 months my skin would swell, crack and seep a clear liquid- a pediatrician introduced the cream to my mother and at the time they had a bar soap, shampoo and cream-of which I used occasionally over the course of 30 years then all of a sudden it disappeared. I did have part of a jar I used sparingly and guarded with my life and I called the company that made the cream and they said that they took the recipe out of circulation. The jar is long gone- sadly and I do not know the name of the pharmaceutical company that originally made it. I now am entering menopause and m...

You shouldn't use a prescription product, if it wasn't prescribed for you and, since this one is not formulated to treat acne, it could actually contain something that might make it worse.

old remedy for skin rashes ## Does anyone know where I can buy Poslam Ointment? My Grandmoyher used to have it and it's the best. ## I am also looking for this product.

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?

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.

Fluorouracil and Calcipotriene combo reaction

I put this combo on face fro 5 days as prescribed. Pretty awful for 2 of the days but all clear after 2 weeks. HOWEVER, then I developed a bad rash on my chest - did not apply cream there.

Kenalog injection - nothing - no results pro or con

I was given a Kenalog 40 injection for a systemic skin rash (starts below the skin). After a week there was no change. Rash on arms and some on other parts either remained the same or spread slightly. Is it possible to be resistant to it. I'm 6' 1", 198 pounds, and, otherwise, in good health. In past several years I've been prescribed oral course of Prednisone which worked. However, even with a tapered dosage over 10 - 12 days the rash would rebound after about a week of clear skin. ## Kenalog contains Triamcinolone, it is another type of corticosteroid, but not every medication works for everyone that tries it. Its typical side effects may include administration site reactions, headache, rapid heart rate, irritability, and acne. Do you have any details on what it causin...
