Taking another pack after finishing the 21 pills

Hello, i just want to ask, is it ok to take another pack after finishing tge 21pills? I did not follow the 7 day free pill. The purpose of taking the pills is for my acne breakouts and thinking that it could help regularized my mens. Is it normal to have a delayed mens since this is my first timee to use the product? I am just curious if its safe or what. Or the 7days free pill must be followed?? Looking forward for your reply.

Iluvien implant visible and moving around

I read that patients can't see the implant but it's clear as day swimming inside my eye to me. Is this normal? Will it settle up or down, or am I forced to live with this thing floating around forever? ## There are cases where it can move to the front of the eye, such as if the posterior part of your lens is missing, or torn. Have you contacted your doctor to ask about this issue? They may be able to offer you a solution.

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 The jar is long gone- sadly and I do not know the name of the pharmaceutical company that originally made it.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...

can you use gelmicin for acne!?

I've been braking out lately and have had many big nasty red pimples so i was wondering if i used this would it clear it up??? ## Hello, Girly! How are you? 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. Have you consulted your doctor? Are you on any other medications? Has anything changed in your diet or skin care routine recently? ## Can i use Gelmicin to cure stretched ear blow out?: ## I'm black and my acne scars are bad , like.deep in my skin . any request ? ## Yes, it’s better to use no scent lotions.

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.

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.

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...

Why did this happen, what can i do?? ## I have been using Persivate for a long time and my skin is damaged. Please help me.

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?

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?
