Can you put baby oil in your hair or on your skin to prevent ticks?

Can you put baby oil in your hair or on your skin to prevent ticks?

Not your best option: I know lots of online "experts" (none of them physicians) say baby oil will repel ticks. It makes a bit of sense, in that the ticks might not be able to recognize your skin if it's coated in oil, and if you have nothing else on hand it's probably better than nothing. Permethrin lotion, however, is far more effective. Deet is not very effective against ticks, but great for mosquitos and such. ...Read more

My 4 month old daughter has dry, tangled hair. What can I put on it to keep it moisturized? Baby oil?

Baby hair: Baby hair is frequently very fine and thin. Use a soft brush. You can use a baby shampoo just once or twice a week which will keep it soft and clean. Baby oil is not usually necessary, but you can use it or a baby hair conditioner. Most early baby hair may fall out or change in the first year, and the new hair comes in differently. ...Read more

I had laser treatment of hair removal and eye operation 7 years back. I have hair on my chin. Will both cause birth defect in baby if I conceive now?

Not related: Your laser hair removal ; eye operation should have nothing to do (neither positive nor negative) about your ability to conceive. Now if you have abundant hair in wrong places (hirutism) which can be caused by systemic diseases (eg pcod, cushings, androgen secreting tumor, etc), you may have problems conceiving. If you had cataract removed, could have been caused by too much circulating cortisol. ...Read more

Folliculitis tx: It's helpful if shaving is done 3-4 days before laser hair removal. If pustules appear, acne medications may be helpful, such as a benzoyl peroxide wash.

Can laser hair removal be suitable for teenagers?

Can laser hair removal be suitable for teenagers?

Yes: Age is less a factor than the locations and color of the hairs themselves. It requires a series of treatments, since laser is effective only when actively growing. Some hairs are in resting phase and not as susceptible. Additional treatment in planned series will find the majority in the active growth phase. Laser seeks color and is best on dark hair growth areas. ...Read more
