Yes: Any topical substance can potentially cause an allergic reaction. This is commonly known as contact dermatitis. If the reaction occurs after repeated exposure, it is most likely allergic. If it occurs on the very first exposure, it is probably an irritant reaction (irritant contact dermatitis). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nerium: Nerium comes from the oleander plant and is being sold as an anti-aging skin product. I have seen no scientific studies to prove this. Last I checked, there is no fountain of youth. Wearing sunblock and hydrating well, avoiding smoking are less expensive ways to keep your skin looking young. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is topical spironolactone (2%) safe for mpb? Is it effective? Can systemic absorption occur?(coz its 50-75 mg topical application in paraben vehicle)
Topical Spironolacto: The literature on systemic absorption of topical sprironolactone is a bit unclear. Small studies in lab rodents showed no absorption, but there are numerous anecdotal entries on hair loss blogs where users attest to side effects which point towards systemic absorption, including falling testosterone levels. Monitor your use carefully to see if you are an "absorber.". ...Read more
For hyperkeratotic skin diseases, which is more better for sensitive skin - lactic acid lotion (lac-hydrin) or urea-based creams?
Both used: It really depends on the percentages of each medication. Many preparations have both urea and Lactic Acid in them. Your skin is also unique and what might appear to be gentler might give you a worse reaction than the so-called potent preparation. If you are treating keratosis pilaris (kp) then you might seek the help of a dermatologist or even have a preparation compounded. ...Read more
Can topical antihistamine (like synopen) n form of cream be safely used for relieving of itching of irritant dermatitis rash?
Good Question!: There are some studies being done to see is ha is effective in retaining collagen (thus retaning a youthful appearance) or in lubricating the joints for humans with various forms of arthritis but nothing definite has been found as of yet. I do know that the liquid form has shown promise for reducing symtoms for dogs with arthritis. Maybe they will find an oral form that helps humans as well. ...Read more
Medication for cystic acne & saeborrheic dermatitis causing severe migraines.Using isotretinoin, minocycline as HCl BP & desloratadine. Drug reaction?
Stop meds, check eye: If you are having headaches, i would stop the Minocycline and isotretinoin. When given together there is an increased risk of a rare side effect, pseudotumor cerebri. I would have my eyes checked and if no evidence of pseudotumor, restart either the Minocin (minocycline) or isotretinoin, but not both. Migraines can also worsen with Isotretinoin and not affect the eyes, but it definitely needs to be ruled out. ...Read more
Yes: This question is very vague, but there are now many topical medications that are applied to the skin, get absorbed into the area, and work well without hardly any of the medicine being absorbed systemically. If you are just looking for a moisturizer, use ones that are water based for a non-sticky feeling. ...Read more

Is SkinLite cream effective? Also, is it safe to use? Active ingredients: Hydroquinone 2% + Tretinoin .025% + Mometasone Furoate 0.1%
It is safe but not: without risks. First remember that HQ2% is low concentration so may not be enough to lighten skin. Tretinoin is sun senstizing so use product at bedtime and sparingly so you don't get too dry or irritated. Mometasone is a steroid so again use sparingly and take breaks off the topical. If not getting results you want, see derm for prescription strength or other treatment options ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can clindamycin lotion (prescribed for acne) cause bowel problems? Or is that just other routes other than topical?
Topical clindamycin: This can indeed cause bowel problems - like diarrhea because if you think about it, the clindamycin lotion will absorb into your skin and thus make it's way to the bowels. If you're having diarrhea after starting this, you should get it checked out. Any antibiotic side-effect should be taken seriously. I would start with the doc who prescribed the clindamycin - give them a call today. ...Read more
