I've got the reply that I can go eilation of my chest and back hair. Can I go with braun se7891? will my thick hair become coarser? Or any suggestions pls

Test area first.: My best advise it that you try it in a small inconspicuous area of your body for about 3 months, and see what happens to your hair when it regrows, after repeated depilation. If you are happy with the results, then you can do it on the entire area.
I don't really have any experience with that devise, and can't tell you if your hair will become coarser.
The test can. ...Read more

Thank you to dr bennett warner. For re laying to my sickness just for last time last monday I did heart cath is clear forth one in 10 years sir?

Not sure of your?: I'm not certain what you're asking but if you're asking if a normal heart cath means that you will be normal for the next 10 years, it does not. A heart cath should not be mistaken for a crystal ball. No one can predict the future. If your cath is completely normal tho, at 43, you must be living a healthy lifestyle and that bodes well for the future. Best of luck! ...Read more

I have stronger odor in left armpit for 20 days, doesn't go away with washing easily. Dr Bennett said here this may be due malignancy, but what type?

One idea: There is a strain of corynebacterium that produces an unusual odor sometimes in just one. I am not an expert on this, but you could try shaving it and using benzoyl peroxide. If this fails, I apologize in advance; check with your personal physician. ...Read more

When I use silk epil epilator braun I get red spots on my skin but after a while it goes away should I stop using it?

When I use silk epil epilator braun I get red spots on my skin but after a while it goes away should I stop using it?

Use another techniqu: It sounds like you are irritating your skin with your epilation. You don't want to end up with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Ask your aesthetician if another technique for hair removal would be better. Also, laser removal or electrolysis may be other options. Discuss with your dermatologist first so your skin type can be examined.Red spots indicate irritation or inflammation to the product ...Read more

I found an alchol (softa-man by b braun) that claims it's anti-hiv. What does that mean? I know you cant spread it through non sexual contact.

I found an alchol (softa-man by b braun) that claims it's anti-hiv. What does that mean? I know you cant spread it through non sexual contact.

Misleading claim: All common alcohols kill HIV on contact, and probably soap and water do a pretty good job also. Nothing you drink will protect you. I know you're smart enough not to believe everything you read, especialyl on patent medicine bottles. 'Softa-man' is actually just a hand-wash and will do the same as any other good wash. And you don't get HIV from dirty hands. ...Read more

Dr. Bennett; What type of malignancy did you have in mind, that causes (different than before) body odor under one armpit, please?

Dr. Bennett; What type of malignancy did you have in mind, that causes (different than before) body odor under one armpit, please?

None: There is NO malignancy that would cause an odor in only one armpit. Odors here are from bacteria that live on the skin, mixing with sweat from the glands surrounding the hairs. The sweat odor can be affected by emotion, but not in only one pit! Keep very clean, wipe the pits with alcohol if you like, let dry then follow with a good deodorant containing aluminum chlorhydrate. Good luck! ...Read more
