Bathing Without Soap
Hi dictor, am just wondering if I can use any of the soaps (QEI + or Clear nature soap) with my Airol 0.05%? Can I use any of them for bathing?
Yes: Airol 0.05% cream is generic tretinoin. Mild soaps can be used in bathing. I am not familiar with QEI or Clear. Dermatologists often recommend Cetaphil or Basis. Avoid any skin care products that can dry or irritate your skin including rough skin cleansers or products that contain alcohol. Be especially careful with cleansing the face, the area where most people apply tretinoins. ...Read more

Is bathing soap a good thing to use on hairs for washing or hair should only be washed by shampoo and conditioner?

Are soap free cleansers effective against germs like bacteria, stap etc when used as a handwash or used when bathing?
Soap: Does not kill bacteria. It loosens up the surface of the skin so the bacteria will wash away. If you are talking about liquid hand cleaners, they are ok when traveling out and about but old fashioned soap is still the best. Just rinse thoroughly so dirt and germs float away and don't obsess about it. We are all covered in germs, most of which are fine. Peace and good health. ...Read more

There are no...: ...Chemical free soaps. Everything is chemicals. I think you are asking what soap is the least harmful. Most soaps cause no harm. Some are drying, so if you have dry skin use a moisturizing soap. Some have scents, so if you are annoyed by the smell, look for a soap that is scent free. There are many, many different kinds of soap to choose from. Personally, I like peppermint. ...Read more

Baby this age does not need a bath every day...Every other day should beadequate and short sponge-baths should do, and you may use mild baby shampoo/soap...Very little is needed.

If my face soap fall in the floor during my bath, it will be contaminated? There's a way to clean without risks?
It's all dirty...:
Germs are everywhere. If you are overly concerned about dropping the soap and it becoming contaminated I bet these types of things routinely cause you great stress and anxiety.
You should talk to your doctor about possible OCD. There are medicines and therapies that can help reduce stress in these situations.
