Postpartum blues: You need to be seen by a mental health professional who deals with post-partum depression. Too little info here to assess and make specific recommendations. In general, take time for yourself, join a mothers' support group, get more baby-sitting or household help if possible, ask family for help, connect with a close friend. Tell pediatrician. Don't be embarrassed. It's not your fault. See: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0072762/ ...Read more

Does light therapy(mixed blue and red light)work to clear acne? Thank you

Does light therapy(mixed blue and red light)work to clear acne?
                                           Thank you

Sucker bait: Colored light therapy is decades old. There's just enough scientific jargon that the practitioner can use to make people believe that this fun-therapy might work.

Using an over-the-counter blue/red light therapy mask for acne, 15 min daily, my insomnia has worsened, it is possible its the light therapy?

Poor choice: Phototherapy is at best an adjunct for acne. You deserve better. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add prescription-strength therapy. Acne is a serious chronic illness that needs to be treated aggressively; having visible acne as an adult is a sign of poor self-care. Wishing you the best. ...Read more
