I have body odor on one of my armpits so i tried using aluminum chloride, but it didn't worked. I've also tried natural remedies but nothing works. ?
Body Odor: Apocrine glands secrete a fatty sweat directly into the tubule of the gland. When you're under emotional stress, the wall of the tubule contracts and the sweat is pushed to the surface of your skin where bacteria begin breaking it down.

A non fungal hairy tongue that is only an elongated filiform papilla. Is there any way to clear the tongue with topical medication; scrapers/etc don't?
Elongated papilla: Other than the unsightly nature of the elongated papilla, there is nothing medically i can recommend for you to get rid of them.

I am taking bethanechol chloride for a weakened bladder. Does this drug have any actual curative effect?
No...: The popularity of using Bethanechol chloride for "weakened" bladder has undergone significant change; its use was popular back in 1970s-1990s, and has been tapering over the past two decades. It theoretically increases contractibility of bladder muscle, ; its intended effectiveness fell short of expectation. So, some urologists would not bother to use it at all nowadays. It has no curative effect. ...Read more
