I have dry skin on my legs and flakey amlactin body lotion helps. It helps my skin look nice clear and soft. Should I stop exfoliating in the shower?
Despite Keratosis Pilaris (KP), I'm getting a tattoo. Once the tattoo heals, will exfoliation (loofah/body scrub/AmLactin lotion) harm the tattoo?
Unlikely: I'm a tattoo buff and have three of my own. Get it ONLY if it's something you've wanted for several years in exactly the form you're getting. Tattoos are in the dermis and keratosis pilaris is a curious epidermal illness. I hope that your choice of design is one that's deeply meaningful, and I admire your courage in asking. ...Read more
Not unless allergic: Other than relieving an itch, calamine lotion should not have any effect on the skin. It would be very unusual to be allergic to calamine lotion but it is theoretically possible, so if your skin seems more irritated, red, itchy or uncomfortable after using calamine lotion, stop using it and avoid it in the future. More likely would be effects from whatever rash you were using the calamine to treat. ...Read more

I mix betasol lotion with my regular lotion to make my skin a bit lighter, is there any side effects that may occur,?
Does anyone know if any serious side effects will occur as a result of the aveeno mosturuzing lotion being placed intravaginally?
It depends on the circumstances. If you did it once, it should not have any effect. If you did it and had sex with a condom, the condom would have become ineffective. If you need a lubricant, use a water based jelly like K-Y jelly.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Betacap lotion for chronic scalp dermatitis gives me severe fatigue and side effects, any alternatives? Especially natural products if any
It helps, but...: Keratosis pilaris bumps don't like to completely go away, but amlactin can help. If the bumps are on both sides of the body (like arms ; thighs) one can use amlactin on one side (and use the other side for comparison). After 3-4 weeks, if the amlactin side is a lot smoother and softer than the other side, then that is a good sign that amlactin has been helpful, and one should use it on both sides. ...Read more
