What is the beat solution for severe back, chest, and facial acne (w&b heads). Body washes, o.T.C medications etc. Note: salyitic acid makes it worse.

Prescription Rx: Acne on the trunk usually doesn't clear with any topical medication.

Is jergens body wash good for eczsma?

Is jergens body wash good for eczsma?

I'm not sure: Generally, it is important to keep your skin from getting too dry. A moisturizing soap is best to use and, after a shower, you should use a good moisturizing product (an emollient). Thick creams like eucerin or cetaphil are better than lotions, and even using heavy ointments like petrolatum or aquaphor at bedtime is often advised. Your doctor can prescribe other drugs (like steroids) if needed. ...Read more

Pick ingredients: Most over the counter acne products have the same few active ingredients, anything with salicylic acid is likley going to help, 2% is probably best for most. 10% glycolic acid washes can be helpful.

How do you know if bv is worser & can you use ph body wash for the smell?

BV treatment needed: I doubt any body wash will help much with the odor of bacterial vaginosis. If you still have the odor, BV may not be worse, but you can assume you still have it. Speak with your doctor about re-treatment, or perhaps preventive treatment with vaginal metronidazole (MetroGel) or boric acid vaginal capsules. If your doc isn't familiar with these, try to find a gyn with special interest in infections. ...Read more

Is summer eve's vag wash safe? NOt the douche, just Use for external washing, gel like texture, like body wash.

But it's unnecessary: The external only product is probably safe. But it's also not necessary. A warm wash w/ the same item you use all over yourself is enough. If you really have an odor that is bad - it's a reason for an OBGYN exam - not a cover-up. If there's an infection - you need to cure it, not hide it. But yes, use is okay if you're healthy otherwise. ...Read more
