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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

How long should betaderm scalp lotion be used for? I only apply it once a day to the entire scalp. Is two weeks sufficient? Im scared of side effects.
Yes: Once the scalp is clear, you no longer need to use it. I'd only be concerned if this needs be used daily for more than 6 months.

How often should I moisturise per day?
And do lotions and creams have side effects on our health when applyed daily over a long period of time?
Moisturizing advice: The frequency of moisturizing really depends on an individual's personal needs and environment. People with naturally oily skin may never need to moisturize, but people with certain skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis may require several applications per day. Avoiding fragrance body products, staying well hydrated, and wearing loose natural fiber clothing will likely reduce overall need. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Maybe: The most expensive medicine is the one that doesn't work; so if amlactin (which is Lactic Acid lotion) works for you, it's worth the price. That said, there are other Lactic Acid lotions on the market which may be cheaper in your area. Also, shop around; prices can vary a lot from pharmacy to pharmacy. ...Read more
