I have chronic dry skin from birth to current. How many times a day is it safe to use ammonium lactate 12% lotion. Twice doesn't seem enough. Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

Caution is advised with repeated use, but there is no direct toxicity of the lotion from repeated uses. Too many uses would likely cause skin breakdown, redness, swelling, and bleeding ...Read more

I have very dry skin on my face only. Have tried oils, creams, lotions - some prescription. Nothing works. Should I try ammonium lactate skin cream?

If it is dryness, it's important to eliminate things that would contribute to it, such as harsh soaps, washcloths, extensive exfoliation, fragrances/dyes, etc. Most ammonium lactate lotions are too irritating to the face.

Should different topical ointments be ever mixed? Can you tell me what side effects/if any could happen if you mix ammonium lactate cream, ketoconazal shampoo, betamethasone ointment, clobetasol propionate ointment?

Should different topical ointments be ever mixed? Can you tell me what side effects/if any could happen if you mix ammonium lactate cream, ketoconazal shampoo, betamethasone ointment, clobetasol propionate ointment?

The: The Betamethasone and the clobetasol are both steroids, therefore it is probably not a good idea to mix these together since steroids can cause thinning of the skin when used in high amounts or over prolonged periods of time. As far as the the other two ointments, there is no interaction as far as I can tell from my research; however you should consult the prescribing doctor or your local pharmacist to be sure.
Take care. ...Read more

I lactated for two days in the month of may, I still lactated for a day last week- not much but I thought it was drug- induced but I'm worried?

May be drug: Induced, but I don't know what drugs you may have taken to cause it. Can also happen spontaneously without significance, or be due to breast stimulation, hypothyroidism or even a pituitary tumor. Don't worry unless it continues and increases in the future.
