Trouble: These are very difficult treatments to diagnose and even harder to treat. Every patient is different, so they all require different treatments to find which works best. A baseball player does not hit a homerun every time he steps up to the plate. Keep trying to find the best meds that work. Sometimes seeing a 2nd specialist can help to give more thought to your illnesses. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I was thinking of using Lindane for pubic lice its not recommed for people with epilepsy like myself.its it affective.permethrin and lotion failed.
Lindane probably OK: Permethrin is extremely effective and reliable. Are you sure it failed? Are you still seeing live (moving) lice, not just nits (eggs) attached to pubic hair?

But check with the doctor treating your epilepsy if in doubt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I recently read about opko's 4k score prostate test which is approved for use in the u.K. Seems very promising and could eliminate a lot of biopsys.?
Public policy: The impact of widespread screening by bloodwork and aggressive treatment of prostate cancer has had little effect on overall mortality.
