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...

Can Ichthammol be used for hidradenitis?

My son was diagnosed this week with hidradenitis. I was wondering whether or not ichthammol (black drawing salve) could be used on it. I have another friend who used it on some boil-like areas on his butt and under his arm which seem to be much like the hidradenitis areas I've read about. ## the ichthammol ointment 20% is black in the tub is this the color it should be or is this color because of out date . ## Hello Teachermom114, If your son has hidradenitis then it is possible that Ichthammol would be able to help him. Some members of the dailystrength hidradenitis-suppurativa section report that they carry a tube of this everywhere with them. My only concern is that most doctors will advise you don't pop or squeeze the sores because this can cause infection and I'm not ce...

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...

Accutane and Infertility

I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...

campho phenique scab relief

Is campho phenique scab relief still sold? If so, where? If not, is there any other like vthis product that is the same formula? ## The Cold Sore Scab Relief has been discontinued. The active ingredients were Pramoxine, a local anesthetic, and White Petrolatum, so all it really did was temporarily alleviate any pain or irritation and moisturize the area, since the other ingredient is just pretroleum jelly. I didn't find this exact combo listed in anything else, but you can try asking your pharmacist. Are there any questions or comments? ## I disagree. I've used petroleum jelly, I've used healing creams for lips and still, if I awaken in the morning and yawn, the scab will crack and bleed.

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.

can duofilm be used for genital warts??

i am trying to find a affective cure for genital warts dose duofilm work and wat are some outher cures and some advice ## Duofilm is a topical Salicylic Acid preperation said to help with warts, corns and calluses. However, it is not recommended to try it for other uses, such as genital warts, unless your doctor has said it is okay. It can cause some pretty bad reactions and skin irritation.

Santyl Ointment

Hi! Can I use Santyl on my face to remove dark skin and on the lines of the face? ## Santyl is a collagenese ointment that is normally used for debribedement, such as when someone has a wound that won't heal and has developed necrotic tissue. Has your doctor told you to use it for these purposes? Otherwise, I can only think that such use would be inappropriate and is likely to cause more harm than good. You can learn more about it here: ## I had a severe infection in my rectal area and the surgeon had to dig deep to clear out the affected tissue. I am left with a deep cavity which requires daily changing of a fistula, and wound care. The cavity seems to be narrowing. Santyl is used in wound care, but it's too expensive. Can you recommend a substitute?
