Used clove oil on decayed tooth and the pain was unberable after using the clove oil What happened. Made pain worst?

Not a cure: Oil of cloves does not cure a minor dental infection, just slightly numbs it. If the infection is deep, clove oil may actually act as an irritant. You can't fix this yourself, and the longer you wait, the worse (more expensive to fix) the problem will become. You know what to do. Call your Dentist. Don't put it off any longer. ...Read more

Just remember that it is not a treatment - only a relief. Hope your dental care will go well. ...Read more

An endodontic specialist can provide you with the proper diagnosis and recommend appropriate management. You should seek care immediately. Oil of cloves, or eugenol, is a sedative used in dentistry to temporarily calm irritated nerves, it is not a long term solution to your problem and may delay you seeking needed care. ...Read more

Garlic: Garlic has never been shown to lower BP and decrease the risk of stroke, heart attack, etc. Use proven BP meds. There are many and some will be less than $1 per year. Better yet first get this book and do Chap 9 exactly to see if BP not better in 2 weeks.

I have a very oily skin. By early afternoon my skin looks like a mirror! Oil control lotions seems fairly ineffective. Is medication my only solution?

Oily skin: Sometimes when we have oily skin, our first inclination is to wash it with cleanser more frequently. But that often serves to dry out the skin more frequently, which causes your skin to become more oily. It becomes a hard to break cycle. If you think you're getting acne from the excessive oil, it might be good to at least talk with your doc about options - it doesn't mean you have to use them. ...Read more

Hi triglycerides correlate with low HDL, which is another risk for atherosclerosis. So without more information... ...Read more

If the oil production returns to normal after accutane is stopped, doesn't that mean acne will return? So how come accutane is considered the only medication to cure acne permanently? Thanks
