Thanks for any advice. ## I m using a tobacco product musa ka gul 6 times a day . I m using it in toilet.to get fresh I want to quit from its use.plz help me ## Mubina, Use salt and mustard oil with fingers, as it will help you to remove the addiction.

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...

ichthammol expiration

Is there an expiration date for ichthammol ointment? I can't find any on the box or the tube. I've had it for quite a few years. ## Hey Dot, How's it going? From what I could gather, the shelf life of ichthammol is reported to be 2 years. And while I'm not aware of ichthammol becoming toxic or unsafe to use after that point in time, lots of meds like this can gradually become less effective, depending on storage/temperature conditions. I hope this helps! ## Thank you David, for your information on ichthammol ointment. ## I too have the same question and can't find answer from a professional. My CVS 1 oz tube has no expiration date. Can anyone help? ## It does have an expiration date. If you look on the tube towards the bottom you will see the bar code and then at the...

Information on clobetasol propionate ointment usp 0.05% ## I have been using clobetasol Propionate Ointment USP,0.05 on and off for 6 months for contact dermititis (hands) I noticed also to have a redness and sometimes sore area on the penis (one area the skin is smooth and shiney)....can this ointment be used in the groin area...it appears to be also inflamed...need help. ## As I understand you should speak with your doc about amount and frequency if u use it on the face or groin.

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 ## Can this ointment be purchased over-the-counter? I was using it on my hair at one time prescribed by a hair doctor. Now I find my hair in the same condition.

Clobetasol Propionate Ointment Application

Can you use clobetasol propionate ointment USP 0.05 on the vaginal area? ## Based on my research, Clobetasol topical is used to help relieve redness, itching, swelling, or other discomfort caused by skin conditions. From what I've read, most of the nerve endings are just outside the vaginal opening, so it would not be of much use internally in any means. "Unless instructed specifically by your doctor or gynecologist", you should only use it outside the vaginal opening (and a thin layer at that, because it is very potent). You can learn more about this drug on the page for Clobetasol Details I hope this info helps! ## If it hasn't been specially formulated for vaginal use, then no. Using something there inappropriately may cause infections, irritation and other medical pr...

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? ## Thanks for your response back Verwon and sorry I'm just getting to see this today.It's been awhile now about 3...

Ichthammol for splinters

I was told that Ichthammol would help draw a splinter out. I've been using it a week & so far no results. How long should it take? ## If you are using the true Ichthommol salve which is dark brown in color and smells like roofing tar, then it should only take overnight. I used to be able to buy this product from the K-Mart pharmacy however they do not sell it any longer. ## Rite aid has it and it's called Draw out. 20% Ichthammol ## It has been known to help, but not always, sometimes it doesn't work, it can depend on the person, since we are all different, as well as the type of splinter, and how deep it has penetrated the skin. The good news, however, is that most splinters will eventually work out on their own, our bodies tend to dislike foreign objects being left in ...

The Ingredients For Bgo Cream Made By Calotabs Co Of Greenville Sc

I am looking for the ingredients of BGO made by Calotabs Co of Greenville, SC years ago. My jar has long been worn smooth and can't read it. ## This product is no longer available, but from another user on our site that was asking about it, the ingredients listed on the packaging were as follows: Salicylic Acid, Sulphur, Zinc Oxid, Phenol Calamine, Menthol, Petrolatum, Lanolin and mineral oil. The only thing I can suggest is trying to find a similar product that contains the same ingredients. Have you tried asking your pharmacist if they can recommend something? ## if you have the ingredients and even a small sample a compound pharmacy can remake it for you! ## I don't know how old your jar of BGO (Beeman's Greaseless Ointment) is, but my father owned the company from the mi...

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...

60 and Accutane

I am a 60 year old male who has had acne for 40 years. Eventually, after many years, my doctor sent me to a dermatologist. She prescribed 60mg a day and, after 6 weeks, I feel like a zombie! Aches, pains - I feel my age. Anyone else out there who takes this at my age? ## I would stop Accutane! You do understand that Accutane is a Chemo drug....If you delt with Acne for 40yrs then I would suggest you find others ways that are safer.

What is the average cost of this cream, if in fact they do have it available? I would want "30 grams, Elidel 1% cream".

This is prior to any sort of rebates, sales or coupons. I'm sure that if you were to do some more browsing you would be able to find an even better deal. Unfortunately I can't give you a pricing for anywhere in Mexico as I do not speak spanish and have no access to the local markets there. Hopefully another user in the area can give you a better idea, in the mean time you can consider the online prices. I hope this helps. Just post a reply here if you ...
