What is the difference between Vanadium nicotinate gylcinate chelate versus Vanadium amino acid chelate?

Not really any: Many drugs come as different salts, but the active ingredient is the same. The salt rarely causes any differences in the activity of the primary ingredient, but may sometimes alter the potency (the dose you need), or the absorption. Often the differences are only for the purpose of patenting a "different" chemical to be marketed. ...Read more

Can long term use of benzyl peroxide cause premature aging?

Can long term use of benzyl peroxide cause premature aging?

Might not get to age: In pure or high ratios, it can explode and you'd age no more! In usual products it won't blow up - but, it is irritating to skin and is a carcinogen so i'd question using it. I've no idea what you look like, but i'd bet it's better than you think and that the "improvement" this stuff makes is less good than you think. Find people who'll "like you just the way you are"! the best way to stay young! ...Read more

I use a 4% benzyl peroxide face wash once everyday& haven't seen results. Should I get a 10% BP face wash or just wash my face twice a day with the 4%?

Maybe: If you're treating acne this is sometimes a very challenging task. What I would do is follow up with your doctor weekly to see what is the best regimen.

Hi Its been 2 years and I still have acne When my pimple disappear another comes out, I tried going to the benzyl peroxide, dermatologists butno use?

It's not always easy: Hi Keith,
The biggest frustration and injustice in my opinion in the treatment of acne is the idea that it will be simple. Every acne ingredient has failed as many people as it has helped.
With this high universal failure rate, it's no surprise that many people are completely slipping through the cracks.

I had scabes. I used permethrin5% for 7 consecutive days and nothing get better. When I stop using its come back again. Used benzyl benz. Too+clemastn?

Too much: You should only use it once, then repeat maybe in 10 days. If you use it every day it will irritate the skin and make your even more itchy. At some point you do have to worry about resistance, but try using the medication correctly first. Also make sure you are leaving on the lotion for 12 hours. ...Read more

The salicylic acid is usually used to remove dead skin (and fungus or other problems along with it), so need to understand how it works and what is "acceptable" response. If worried, see your dr or a dermatologist for advice, or ask your pharmacist. ...Read more
