Doctor insights on:
Body Wash Medication
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. You characterize it as severe, and your personal physician may either try a systemic antibiotic plus perhaps a topical retinoic acid derivative, or refer you for Isotretinoin treatment. The latter is not for the faint-hearted but is remarkably effective. ...Read more
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. Benzoyl peroxide washes can be great for acne, but hard on your skin, ie drying, redness etc. If you are having problems controlling acne, call your family doc! ...Read more
Aveeno (oatmeal) or cetaphil:
It is not the body wash, as much as the aftercare that will help.
I recommend bathing / showering in lukewarm (never hot) water, and using dove bar soap.
For moisturizer....Try cerave cream. ...Read more

Various Options...: Shower daily with lukewarm water for 10-15 minutes. Use a gentle cleansing bar or wash in the sensitive skin formulation as needed such as Vanicream, Dove white bar, Cetaphil, or Cerave. Avoid harsh and drying cleansers, such as Ivory, Irish Spring, or Lever 2000. Pat away excess water and immediately apply moisturizer like Vanicream. ...Read more
Eczema: My personal favorite body wash is made my olay and is very moisturizing. You should follow that with cetaphil or cerave cream as your daily moisturizer. This combination works very well to keep the skin moisturized but may not be enough to clear up an eczema flare. For that, you may need some steroid cream, either otc or prescription. ...Read more
I am not sure what you mean by "PH hormones". When I looked that up on the web the only answers I got was Parathyroid Hormones. Is that what you have and if so, what is being done about it?

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
Yes: Fair try. Get your hormones checked...thyroid, Estrgen. ...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
