What else can I do to avoid dry skin? Bath oil?

What else can I do to avoid dry skin? Bath oil?

Hydrate!: Try to find out what causes your dry skin. Is it something you use on your skin? Some food you ingested? How much fluids do you take and what kind? Drink adequate amounts of water! avoid scented soaps and creams, try using creams with few ingredients and apply frequently. Avoid very hot baths and very long ones as they may strip your skin from natural oils. You may try olive oil in your bath. ...Read more

My 17month old child was exposed to lamp oil on his skin. He has broken out in a rash. I gave him a bath. What else should I do? What if he ate some?

My 17month old child was exposed to lamp oil on his skin. He has broken out in a rash. I gave him a bath. What else should I do? What if he ate some?

Toxic substance: Scented and unscented lamp oil is kerosene without the bad smell. But contrary to popular belief, the additives (benzene, naphtha) that masks the smell makes lamp oil potentially dangerous, and if absorbed by the skin and mucous membranes it could be harmful. Please call poison control for complete information: 1 -800-222-1222. ...Read more

In atopic eczemacan I use very dilute solution of clobestasol in olive oil immediately after bath one or twice in a week?

What's the ?: Am you asking whether this is safe as for safety , you will need to calculate the actual quantity of clobetasol used to assess potential side effects. However if you are using less than 3 gm of clobetasol 0.05% / wk topically, i think the risk of side effects would be minimal. In atopic dermatitis , the most important step is using a moderate-thickness moisturizer immediately after bathing. ...Read more

I applied olive oil to my hair before taking a bath.Will this make my hair grow long and can u suggest other things to make it grow more faster?

I applied olive oil to my hair before taking a bath.Will this make my hair grow long and can u suggest other things to make it grow more faster?

Olive oil healthy: I don't think olive oil will make your hair grow longer, but it may keep the hair from splitting and breaking, so in effect can help it grow longer. Best things for hair growth -- balanced diet, adequate protein intake, getting enough B vits and Vit D. Gentle hair care to avoid damage and breakage. ...Read more

My hair is falling down when i take bath or applying oil on head..How to stop this..Is there any problem of applying shampoo while taking bath.

Hair loss: You should go to the doctor for bloodwork to evaluate your hair loss. As long as you rinse off, there is no real issue with applying shampoo while bathing. I wouldn't sit in a dirty tub though, it is not great for your private parts. ...Read more

Itching all over the body. No rash nothing at all. It just itches a lot all over. I put baby oil after i bath still its not okay!! :(?

Itching all over the body. No rash nothing at all. It just itches a lot all over. I put baby oil after i bath still its not okay!! :(?

See dermatologist: If the itching is so bothersome, you should consult a dermatologist since dry skin is apparently not the issue. The itch pathway is far more complex than we had thought and no longer just a matter of histaminic action. (I assume you have tried antihistamine already. If not, you may give it a try). ...Read more

20/21 weeks pregnant Can I use a lush bath bomb with these essential oils as ingredients: Grapefruit oil, cedar wood oil, and peppermint oil. No concentrations are given. They are not the first ingredients listed. ?

20/21 weeks pregnant Can I use a lush bath bomb with these essential oils as ingredients:
Grapefruit oil, cedar wood oil, and peppermint oil. No concentrations are given. They are not the first ingredients listed. 
?

Yes: Based on the information provided, fetal harm is unlikely, as long as the temperature is not too hot. There is a small risk of fainting from the vasodilatory effect of a hot bath which could cause drowning. Also, some people could be allergic to some of the ingredients themselves. Dipping your toes in the bath for a few minutes to ensure no allergic reaction may help eliminate this concern. ...Read more

Allergic?: I'd first consider the jojoba oil. You may likely be allergic to it or a component of the oil mixture. Stop and give your skin a few days to see if it starts clearing. If not, see a doctor. ...Read more

Any opinions on a detox bath? Detoxifying your body by laying in a tub with epson salt, ginger, baking soda, and essential oils?

Reasonable to try: There is not much research on this topic, but epsom salt baths are a proven way to get magnesium into our bodies, which most people need more of. Baking soda and essential oils are said to help our bodies to detoxify and I have many patients who tell me they do feel better if they do this when feeling toxic. There is certainly no harm in trying. At the very least soaking in a warm tub is relaxing! ...Read more
