I'm no longer producing enough breastmilk, and want to stop all together. Can I do it without taking that pill that drys you up.?

I'm no longer producing enough breastmilk, and want to stop all together. Can I do it without taking that pill that drys you up.?

Three basic plans: Cold turkey: bind yourself & send baby to others to bottle feed until they will for you. (painful & frustrating for both but some do ok.) gradual: drop a feeding every day or two, using bottle instead. At some point body drops supply & you can accelerate coming off. (less pain)third: us baby to soften soften the full breast for a minute or two followed by a bottle. This will slow milk production. ...Read more

Can using a mouthguard at night give you cavities? Because it drys out your teeth

Can using a mouthguard at night give you cavities? Because it drys out your teeth

Not really: If you brush and floss before you go to bed your teeth are clean. Saliva naturally decreases while you are asleep so your mouth will always be dry when you wake up. You would increase your risk of cavities if you drank or ate a sugery substance, then put the mouthguard in. It would prevent any saliva from washing the teeth. Then again eating before you go to bed is a no-no. ...Read more

I get a lot of white crusting on eye due to eye drys, what could I do to prevent this.

I get a lot of white crusting on eye due to eye drys, what could I do to prevent this.

Precipitates: Eye drops that spill onto the adjacent eyelid skin can just be carefully removed with a water moistened washcloth or lint free tissue. This occurrence is essentially impossible to avoid because the volume of drop administered is much greater than what your eye is capable of absorbing. Your eyelid blink will wisk away the residual, which often spills over to the eyelid skin and drys (precipitates). ...Read more

I have acne (only mild)I got some benzoyl proxide 10% and it just drys out my skin. Need an alterntive that works fast that leaves blemish free skin?

I have acne (only mild)I got some benzoyl proxide 10% and it just drys out my skin. Need an alterntive that works fast that leaves blemish free skin?

Benzoyl Peroxide: Most acne products tend to be drying. I generally recommend applying an oil-free moisturizer with sunscreen after use, especially during the day. If this does not help, try using it every other day or decreasing to a milder strength. For markedly irritated skin you may need to stop the product and follow up with your provider. ...Read more

Urine flow is fine but I leak urine and it drys brown on undies but comes out yellow?

Urine flow is fine but I leak urine and it drys brown on undies but comes out yellow?

Foods, meds, illness: Urine is excess water and waste products that your kidneys filter from your blood. Color ranges from pale yellow to deep amber, depending on concentration. When urine dries, the color reflects the pigments of the waste products. The 3 main causes of abnormal urine color are: foods, drugs, and health issues (blood in urine and liver disease can cause brown urine). A urinalysis can help detect these. ...Read more

Facewash either drys face giving acne or if it doesn't dry it out, clogs pores giving acne. If I don't wash, feels oily. How do I find right balance?

Dry not the target: Your face should have a certain amount of oil. Drying it out only causes the sebacious glands to start secreting more oil. Proper professional cleansers should help. Visit an esthetician to get proper guidance. Avoid cleansers with any alcohol in them, including astringents. ...Read more

Moisturizer: Products which contain hyaluronic acid are often good skin moisturizers. Neocutis makes a product called Hyalis which is a very nice moisturizer. It penetrates into the skin quickly and does not leave and oily feeling. Neutrogena also makes an over the counter hyaluronic acid product which also is a good moisturizer and not oily. ...Read more

My right eye drys up. So I use drops and feels sore?

My right eye drys up. So I use drops and feels sore?

Tired Eye: Dry eye is common. Trick is to rejuvenate tear film (has 3parts) apply heat to eyelids without burning your skin (hot towel in hot water; avoid pushing on eye); re-heating when towel gets cold (like hot towel push ups), it will open the meibomian gland and use artificial tears 4x/day. See eyemd otherwise. Good luck; see my blog for full instructions: step ladder approach for dry eye. ...Read more

What do doctors check for when they ask you to follow his/her finger with your eyes? I couldn't follow drys finger to the right, he said vertigo.

What do doctors check for when they ask you to follow his/her finger with your eyes? I couldn't follow drys finger to the right, he said vertigo.

Motility: As the doctor moves a finger in front of you, he/she is assessing the way your eyes are tracking (moving). If your eyes don't move as they should, or if unsteady movements are detected, further tests are generally necessary to diagnose the problem. If your eyes are unable to move to one side, depending on which eye, usually a neurologist should evaluate you. Nystagmus (shaky eyes) may cause dizziness. ...Read more

What would cause a condition where mucous builds up in the back of my throat, my tongue drys out, and it creates a vacuum when I try to swallow.

What would cause a condition where mucous builds up in the back of my throat, my tongue drys out, and it creates a vacuum when I try to swallow.

URI, post-nasal drip: It causes the mucus that forms in your sinuses/nostrils to drop down into the back of the throat. The dehydration caused by reduced water intake or fever or other stuff makes the tongue dry and thickens the mucus that nearly blocks off the opening when your swallow muscles tighten. It must feel awful - try to drink water a lot - take mucinex (guaifenesin) as directed - neti-pot may help - inhale menthol steam. ...Read more
