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 two general types of skin, hairy and glabrous skin (...

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...

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...

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.

clobetasol propionate 0.05% usage

Can clobetasol propionate .05% be used to treat athlete's foot fungus on my feet? ## Hello, Jim! How are you? No, this is a steroid medication, so it won't help with athlete's foot, which is a fungal infection. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including skin redness, irritation and dryness. To treat it, you need an antifungal cream, there are many available over the counter, if your doctor approves of your using them. Alternatively, they can prescribe something for you. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can I use renovate as an skin antifungal? not athlete's foot

Earlier on he took it for 18 months at dosages of 16mg, 8mg and 4mg; but when the dr stopped prescribing it, the white spots started spreading. How can my son be cured? ## I hv been prescribed this medicine too for vitiligo... not sure whether to hv it or not after reading ur reviews!!!! ## Mr. PK , I am not aware which city you live, however if you are at Kolkata, please try to book appointment with Dr. Samiran Dhar @ Madox Square, Ballygunge, Kolkata. He is a pediatric dermatologist and I have seen excellent results through his treatment for Kids.

What is Betametasona Clotrimazol Gentamicina cream used for?

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...

Little black moles on your body could be what?

I noticed some little black dots maybe half the size of a dime coin, and they are on my left leg. There's like 3 or 4 and I am wondering what they could be? ## It is very hard to say, it could be anything from harmless age related changes in melanin, to a form of skin cancer. The best thing to do would be to see your doctor and let them look at them, they can also do a biopsy, if they feel it is necessary. Most skin conditions, including cancers are very treatable, if caught early enough, so it would be best to have these checked out sooner, rather than later. You should always do so, if you notice something new and odd on your skin. How long ago did they appear?
