gelmicin and lichen sclerosis

I just want to let anyone with lichen sclerosis (in vag area) that gelmicin works for controlling itching and small boils that sometime we get under our belly. I already made numerous trips to my dr. and nobody seems to have hear about lichen sclerosis of the vag area. Tried EVERYTHING else and nothing worked until I tried Gelmicin. Dr's said they never heard of Gelmicin! I can sometimes get it in Mexico or thru Amazon. WORTH IT!!! ## I have had lichen for ten years. Gelmicin ,is helping a lot. I urge you to try it. It is better than clobetsol ## They may not have heard of it, because Lichen Sclerosis is a very rare condition that is not seen often, though it occurs most commonly in post menopausal women. The National Organization for Rare Disorders has some great information availa...

Does betametasona clotrimazol gentamicina cause skin thin'g

I've used betametasona clotrimazol gentamicina ( Gelmicin Brand) For years specifically for itching in my crevices due to being overweight. Now a few years later I've have very thin skin in those crevices and I didn't realize that this cream had steroids! Should I assume this is what caused the thinning of my skin? Totally transparent in those areas specifically underneath my breasts. ## It is possible, though there's no way to say with certainty, but Betamethasone has been known to cause skin issues as side effects, including acne, and there are known to worsen with long-term use. Other side effects can include redness, and flaking. Are you on any other medications? Do you use any other creams, or ointments regularly?

Barmicil compuesto creme

Information on Barmicil compuesto creme ## Sorry, I cannot find any drug listing under this name. ## This is a medication from Mexico which is used to treat a variety of skin conditions.

BETAMETASONA & CLOTRIMAZOL & GENTAMICINA ## Have been using Barmicil Compuesto Cream which I purchased at Walmart in Acapulco....Is this a safe cream and, if so, where can it be purchased in the USA???? ## I have been using Barmicil for several skin problems such as sores, pimples, rosacea, ringworms, and gotten excellent healing of ailments, with no skin scarring.
