Hi! I have been using l carnitine for a while, 2 capsules (500mg) twice a day but I'm also planning to take glutathione pills for by back chest and face acne and skin together with vit c for the whitening effect. The dose would be 500 mg twice a day and double the dose for vitamin c. Is this safe? Can I continue on this? Thank youView Thread
My step-sister recently started using 2 products by Nerium and also started selling these products. I hate to be a skeptic, but do these products really work? And are they worth their high cost? I would love to believe what they advertise but I am concerned that it may be a scam. What do dermatologists think about Nerium and its claims?View Thread
I am 16 years old female. I have been suffering for extreme acne for the past 5 years. I have tried tons of products to see which would work for me but my acne has always been the same. I have it all over my face which has brought down my self confidence. I've been going to see a dermatologist and she prescribed me two different topicals and pills, I've been using it but i still break out even though i use sun screen,moisturizer, toner, and my medication. I am so helpless now, i want to give up and have no hope left. Due to the strong medication, my chin, upper lips, forehead, and cheeks has been soooo red! I asked my dermatologist about it and she said it was a just reaction from my medication but will go away over time. It looks like i have rosacea but im positive that i dont, what can i do to help with my redness and acne?View Thread
Hello! I recently moved from chicago to colorado, and for a week now I've been having problems with my skin (both sides of my face will breakout (not with pimples; it'll be red, blotchy and sometimes itchy). The only thing that would help would be homemade, natural facials (oatmeal, honey and yogurt). If I don't do a facial, then the redness returns. What could have all of a sudden brought this on? Any suggestions?View Thread
So I have a problem— a fungal problem. I was diagnosed with mocassin-style athlete's foot back in October, which spread to my hands and then to my armpits. My doc called it 'a case of fungus gone out of control', and after three rounds of prescription topicals, we finally decided to go to oral Lamisil tablets. I am 6 weeks in and have very visible improvement to my hands and feet, hooray!
Knowing how contagious it is, and how sensitive the groin area is, I have been careful not to touch my groin/anus area, yet somehow, in the last two to three weeks or so, I have noticed a steady progression of what looks like female jock itch. Maybe it was a contaminated razor, although I tried to keep my armpit razors separate from my groin razors. In any case, I have burning red marks in my buttocks crease, into my anal area and now it seems it has progressed to my groin creases. My vulva also seems red and a bit inflamed, although it does not itch or burn, really.
My question is, how can I have gotten jock itch, 6 weeks into Lamisil which is clearly working in my other areas, and why is it getting worse instead of getting better? Or is this jock itch? Could it be a severe yeast infection? I tend to have a lot of discharge regularly, so I can't really tell. I am using a cream (Ketoconazole 2%) on the area regardless (I use disposable gloves to do so) in addition to taking Lamisil....so I guess there's not much more I could do anyway?

About a year and a half when I was doing a musical play, my friend commented on my neck saying that "Lidia I think you got purple make up on your neck" and that how it all started. I never realized I had that patch of something on my neck. I thought it was dirt and took a shower and let it be. After a few months of ignoring my neck, it started to get itchy. I been having a lot of Dan-drift and patches of it on the back of my head. My mother points out that a black patch is growing on the side of my neck. I went to a skin specialist and they put my on a cream called Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment USP, 0.1% I put it on 3 times a day. They don't know what it is. It iches now and then and when I touch it, it feels really rough compared to my skin. I feel like is just getting bigger and it wont go away. It been a year about to be two with this thing on my neck. I'm 17 and this is really making my feel really self-conscious.
On and off since September I've been getting red marks on my skin that look like mosquito bites but aren't. They don't itch or make me feel unwell and last only a couple of days or so before fading and then popping up again a couple of weeks later. I'm curious as to what causes them? I have washed all my bedding and clothes on hot washes incase of bed bugs or dust mites but still happening. It pops up no matter where I'm staying and so far only in winter.
The first bout was really bad with marks all up my back and arms but more commonly only 2 or 3 'bites' on my forearm on the side closest to my body. Don't feel like I can go to the doctors for something so trivial but wondered if anyone had any suggestions on what could be causing it?
Laser Laser Hair Removal is expensive compared to other hair removal methods. This simple reason for this is due to the high acquisition cost of machines, maintenance and the materials used during these treatments are also very costly.
A real laser machine will run tens of thousands of dollars, even used. Of course, there are some affordable laser hair removal machines, such as laser hair removal machines from Zhengzhou PZ Aurora Beauty & Technology Co., Ltd.(http://www.toplipolaser.com/), a reliable beauty equipment manufacturer from China. Laser hair removal systems cost around $40,000 with a high maintenance bill each year. Plus each operator needs to be fully trained and most are practicing medical professionals.
Laser Hair Removal is expensive compared to buying a disposable shaver, but not very expensive if you compare it to paying for a waxing job every 3-4 weeks, especially when you factor in the value of your time. Certainly there is an up-front expenditure for a series of laser treatments, but you quickly get a return on your investment, all the while achieving your goal of hair removal!
Overall, Laser Hair Removal is not so expensive. More expensive per treatment, but fewer overall treatments are required.View Thread

I've had this strange bump on my pelvic region, right above my penis, like almost on it. It's not caused any real discomfort but it won't go away. I've had it for a few months. It's very small and not visible to the eye. I'm std free and shave down there regularly. I'm starting to worry that it's cancer even though penial cancer is rare and I'm only 22. Can someone please give me some insight?View Thread

Hi, I need to know what may possibly be happening to my 16 year old son. About a month ago we traveled from our home in New York to Disney World in Florida for a family vacation. While on vacation in FL, my son developed a rash on his neck that looked pinkish and blotchy that resembled hives. When we got back to NY, I took him to the walk-in and they gave him some type of allergy medicine that I later found out was suppose to go up his nose, and we had been putting it directly on his neck. However, the rash still disappeared although it took a while (whether it was due to the medicine or not we don't know). I doubt it because we were distributing it incorrectly. His doctor thought that the rash could have been a result of an antibiotic (Amoxicillin) that he was taking for facial acne. Although the rash disappeared after some time, he started breaking out with these bumps around the front and back of his thighs with several on the inside of his thighs that almost resembled infected pimples. He was also complaining of a sore scrotum but wouldn't show me because he is 16 and tried to tell me it was chaffing and needed Gold Bond, but I'm not sure it it's related or not. There are also a couple on his lower belly area but the majority is around his thigh area. Do you have any suggestions on what this could be?View Thread

I'm a physician who has had problems with allergies to topical OTC products. It began as a PABA sensitivity to sunblocks. I switched to PABA free but about 5 years later I developed a severe rash to several PABA free products. I also have developed erythema, pruritus and edema of my eyelids which I attribute to soaps, shampoo or shaving cream. What OTC products would you recommend to avoid an allergic reaction?View Thread

Which of these are best for my sensitive rosacea skin? E.A. Ceramide Lift Firm Makeup OR Philosophy Miracle Worker Foundation? I want the best possible product I can find for my skin [quality, healthy>. (These are the next 2 im trying, they had gr8 reviews) Ive already hit all the prestige counters, BareMinerals, Sephora, Ulta. Nothing seems to work with my skin. I do know to stay away from the oils so I read a lot of labels ahead of time. There are so many brands out there, its mind blowing. By this time, after years of embarrassment dealing with skin sensitivity and then throwing rosacea on top of that, Ive probably tried close to 200 foundations to cover it. Im getting ready to turn 50 and cant find a single anti-aging product that agrees with my skin! Thats frustration. Im getting lines around my eyes now and I wound like to get rid of that too and the puffy lids and dark circles that showed up this year. HELP PLEASE. Im up for recommendations.
I've had an issue that I've been dealing with for a few years now. It wasn't a problem until I got into my early 20's, around 23 or so. I'm now 25, and it's not getting any less. The skin on the backs of my hands, nowhere else, becomes red/purple and wrinkly in the cold, and feels very dry. My knuckles in particular crack, and I sometimes bleed a bit. Warming them up helps, but putting any hand sanitizer (which I just did a bit ago) or lotion on them burns like crazy. Even as I type this, when I make a fist, it burns a bit. When I open my hands, you can see a lot of wrinkles. In a fist, the wrinkles are mostly around my knuckles. There are red lines that are more visible when I'm colder as well, that resemble stretch marks. They are consistently like this throughout the winter, and even washing my hands usually burns. I grew up with psoriasis my whole life, and my dad when I was growing up said his knuckles split in the winter and he had to work to keep his hands warm. I don't know if this may be related, but I know it's a real pain. I want to talk to a dermatologist about it but I just don't have the money. The skin of my hands is also cold to the touch most of the time. This is not a problem whatsoever in the warmer months, but I live in Northwest Indiana, just a half an hour outside Chicago. I also don't have stellar heat in the old house I live in. So I want to know if there's a way (other than the obvious - keep your hands warm) to get over this issue or at least lessen it. It's not hindering, but it really is painful and annoying. Please help. Thank you!View Thread
I had no experience with cold weather. While traveling in Europe i exposed my hands for several days to low temperatures, from 0 to 6 degrees celsius on average. I felt my hands a bit painful and burning everyday but nothing happened to it. However, there was a particular day that i could not manage the cold in my hands, in such day my hand's skin were severely dry and got lesions over those bones before the fingers. The skin in those spots were peeling and the region stayed in purple color for several days, then it turned redish and now it is looking like a soft sunburn(has been so for two months).
Does anyone know what is that? How can i make my skin back to the original color?View Thread
I have tiny little freckles on my lips. Well, they look like freckles at least they might just be sun spots. But I'm only 22, and I'm guessing that isn't really good? I do have a family history of skin cancer, and I do have very pale skin and burn easily. I try very hard to wear spf anything with my makeup, as I'm very scared of getting cancer (understandable) I'm just wondering if I should get it checked out or if it's nothing major and I should just keep an eye on it in case it changes or anything? Thank you for any help.View Thread
