Indirectly possible: This would really be a 'drool rash' caused by the shield of the binky allowing saliva to stay trapped next to the skin, not something caused by the binky its self. Often when infants are teething they make excess saliva resulting in a drool rash on lips, cheeks and/or necks. This would happen even without the binky if they have lots of excess saliva. ...Read more

For how long should I be avoiding sun exposure after dermabrasion? I am aware that dermabrasion may cause some skin irritation. For how long avoiding sun exposure is necessary following the skin smoothing procedure for removal of small dry bumps on my arm

Because microdermabrasion is a bit more expensive, most patients opt for the topical creams. I hope that helps. ...Read more
