Tea Tree Oil And Moles
No: It is a weak estrogen and has given men gynecomastia. It is the one topical remedy for active lesions of acne for people who belong to cults that allow only plant-based medicine. I would urge these people to wise up, especially if they're responsible for a teen's physical and emotional health. They won't touch scars, which should never be allowed to develop nowadays.
Several treatments.: The reason you hear so many different treatments for toenail fungus is because there is no perfect, sure-fire treatment that works 100% of the time. I've seen vaporub work, as well as other natural oil remedies, but very rarely. You can also try laser therapy, antifungal creams, paints, or even oral medications if your doctor deems you healthy enough to take them.See 2 more doctor answers
Do guarantee: First off - there is never a guarantee that any particular treatment will do the trick. Second, if ringworm is erradicated, it doesn't mean that it would not be possible to be re-infected in the future.
NO: Tea tree oil will not cure this fungal infection. Apply a topical antifungal treatment that you can buy over the counter to the involved skin several times a day for 2 to 4 weeks until 1 week after the rash has resolved. These can contain terbinafine, miconazole, clotrimazole, or other azoles. It takes a while for the rash to fade so don't panic. Good luck.
Tea tree oil: Yes, it could be helpful against acne
Good luck: I don't think its very reliable, woudn't expect it to work for anything but very mild acne, and lately I've been seeing lots of people that have become allergic to it. If you don't need anything strong, it might be worth a try.
I'm trying to get rid of a rash. I use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (for itch), tea tree oil, and baby powder. Is this okay?
Terrible dandruff. Tried 3 brands of shampoos, white & apple cidar vinegar, tea tree oil. Nothings working. How can I get rid of this?
See a dermatologist: You've tried all the over-the-counter remedies with no help. I suggest you see a dermatologist to determine the cause and prescribe a medicine to help it. Could be an infection or an inflammatory condition like psoriasis.
I've burned my skin with tea tree oil because of a pimple I was trying to get rid of I now have a huge dark spot on my face how do I get rid of it?
Could be blood: Don't squeeze pimples on your face! Now you know why. You may have broken a small blood vessel and the leaked blood is a "black and blue " and it will will go away on its own. Your pimples may be because you have acne. There are OTC treatments for that. Look at the web. Speak to your
Don't bother.: I see patients all the time who have tried tea tree oil + various other oils; their acne is no better, but they do complain of dryness, itching, stinging, burning, and redness. At least 1 published study showed that tea tree oil can cause abnormal breast growth (gynecomastia) in boys. So don't waste your time & money; let a dermatologist prescribe legitimate acne remedies for you.
Keloid/Hypertrophic: Keloids & hypertrophic scars are basically treated the same initially: silicone tape/gel (myscaraway, from walgreens/online). If these don't help, see your dr for steroid/bleomycin injections, or external electron-beam radiotherapy. Do not let anyone cut it out if keloid confirmed, it will simply grow larger!See 1 more doctor answer
I have a bump on my snug piercing. How did I get rid of it? And I have tried everything like tea tree oil, hot compresses and chamomile tea. Do I need to take my earring out?
A bump?: Is this bump red or inflamed? Is it sore? Oozing pus or blood? If so, it might be infected and you would need to remove the earring. You may want your doctor to take a look at it, regardless.

Must be visualized: And examined. No diagnosis can be made without direct visualization.
