poslam ointment

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. 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.

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...

Is lobate gm skin cream effective for treating molluscum

i have molluscum on my face since last 6months i m tired of taking tablets using ointment now doctor hs prescribed me lobate cream. So,will it give me good results or not? ## We had the same experience when our little boy caught molluscum at pre-school. We thought it was just a rash but it got worse and worse. After many months we took him to a medical specialist who suggested either minor surgery or just leave it and do nothing! ... and we paid her good money for the advice. The problem with the advice from doctors to just leave it is that it is contagious. So then his little sister caught it followed by our new born. It wasn't long until my husband and I also caught it. We understandably had had enough by this stage - late as it was. We researched the net and talk to our mothers i...

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...

Canex V cream on peeled, irritated vaginal skin

I recently had gernital warts on the outside of my vagina. I used wart magic which contained salicylic acid and now my skin peeled off and is causing a burning sensation. Can I use to Canex V cream to soothe the pain as it was suggested to me? ## Hello, Kyla! Very sorry about the problem you're having, that has to be miserable.

BioTe hormone therapy pellets

Is there a NDC code for BioTE hormone therapy pellets? My insurance can't seem to find this product to see if it can be covered or reimbursed. ## BioTe is the name of the company, but I am not sure what they call their actual product. However, you can call the company and ask, they list their number as 866-560-1773. It's considered to be a bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Their site also says that their statements have not been evaluated by the FDA, so since these are bioidentical, it might be considered a non-prescription, or non-medical product, so it may not be covered by most insurance plans. BHT products can still cause some side effects, such as acne, headaches, irregular bleeding in women, and weight changes. Does anyone else know more about BioTe?

Dry and cracking lips

I have dry and cracking lips. I stopped wearing my lipsticks but the dryness continues. What can I use to repair my lips? They are often burning and it hurts too. ## Hello, Juanita! How are you doing? Has there been any change? I used to experience that, when I had forced air heat, since it tends to cause the air to be very dry, I tried everything to help, and none of the ointments, or lip balms worked. I didn't find any relief, until I started using a humidifier to keep the air moist. It's also very important to make sure that you are taking in adequate fluids, since dry, cracking lips can be one of the first signs of dehydration. How much liquid do you take in each day? Are you on any medications that might be contributing to the problem?
