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. There are two general types of...

Buro Sol discontinued?

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? Unfortunately, since it's never been available in the U.S., I can't find much information on it or why it was discontinued. I can't even find a listing of the ingredients. 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. I live in a town west of Toronto Canada and its available here in most if not all the pharmacy's. some are now keeping the powder behind the counter but others have it with...

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. Doctor doesn't know but thinks maybe the absorbed cream went systemic. Cortisone helped. Now a similar rash has spread to my legs and arms. not burning but supper bumpy and itchy. Scrambling to find help. Has anyone experienced a systematic reaction to untreated parts of the body? ## You are definitely having an allergic reaction to Something. Is it this creme or something else you are using causing it. The same thing happened to me and it was a nightmare. I also lost a lot of my hair. See who the manufacturing company is and where they are located-some foreign country?? China?? The easy way is to...

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...

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...

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...

Graphites 30c for scars and adhesions

I would like to learn more about this medicine called "Graphites 30c" and how it can help with scars and adhesions. And are there any side effects? Thank you for your help! ## It is exactly that, Graphites, and they claim it can help reduce the appearance of scars. However, it is not an actual approved medication, it falls under the auspices of the HPUS, which is a Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the U.S. Thus, this product is not regulated, and not actually proven to do what is claimed. I would also warn anyone with uncontrolled diabetes to be very careful using it, because the inactive ingredients are Lactose, and Sucrose, which are both types of sugar. Has anyone actually tried this product?
