Eyelash Growth Serum
Latisse (bimatoprost): Latisse (bimatoprost) is fda approved to help eyelashes grow thicker, longer, and darker. It works very well and is very safe with minimal side effects for most. It is considered strictly cosmetic and not covered by insurance. Discuss the pros and cons with an ophthalmologist. ...Read more
Some side effects: The manufacturer reminds people to apply the product to the eyelashes and not to get the applicator or product in the eye itself. It mentions side effects of skin redness, headache, and eyelid twitching, and in some cases the eyelashes will dry up and fall out if the product is used too long. It supposedly contains a prostaglandin similar to that found in latisse (bimatoprost) - the only FDA approved product. ...Read more

My daughter age seven months has swelling in upper portion of the head and doctor has advised blood culture, lft, kft, CBC & serum electrolytes.?
Swelling?: Is it on soft spot? Has imaging studies (head ultra sound or skull x-ray) done? Is it new or was she born with it? What does it feel like? (sort or bony hard) does it bother her? Is it tender? I'm afraid, without knowing the answer to all these questions, it's hard to make a judgement call as to what tests to order. ...Read more
So if I have bn ruled out by NOTpreg by many ways hpt serum ultrasound trnvag, why do I feel inside there is a hard ball in my uterus like a baby head

Somatizing?: This is classic. I strongly suspect you are in a difficult life situation and this itself is causing your symptoms. This is the commonest single thing that we see in clinical medicine. The normal sensations of a living body are registering as sickness. If I'm wrong, forgive me -- but these testes would pick up anything serious. I'd urge you to hit the gym hard & build quality friendships. ...Read more
I swim 2 hours daily. I know that chlorine damage hairs. Does it also damage eyelashes like affect its growth or stunt it? Will they thin over time?
Not a concern: I don't believe I've heard that swimming damages or affects the growth of eyelashes or eyebrows. The chlorine in the water can certainly affect the color of hair though. A good swimmers shampoo can help rid the scalp hair of the excessive accumulation of chlorine in hair, but I wouldn't use it on your eyelashes. ...Read more

How may I grow my eyebrows out to be thicker and get hair to grow in spots it doesn't, and also give growth to eyelashes?
See a dermatologist: Thinning eyebrows and eyelashes can be a sign of internal disease. I would seek the help of an experienced dermatologist to seek out a cause which will guide treatment. Some possible causes include thyroid disease and autoimmune hair loss (alopecia areata). There is a prescription medicine that can help grow eyelashes and possibly eyebrow. It is called "Latisse". Your dermatologist can provide ...Read more
I have been using Latisse (bimatoprost) since November, and honestly I don't notice anything different exept eyelash loss and no new growth. What can I do?!
What is the difference between Latisse (bimatoprost) and Revitalash? Does Revitalash still help the growth of eyelashes eventhough it doesn't make them darker?
Neither: Certain oils or petroleum ointment applied to base of lashes will smother the microscopic mites called demodex which live in the hair follicles. Overgrowth of demodex can cause lashes to fall out prematurely. The only fda approved way to stimulate eyelash growth is to use a prescription medication called bimatoprost (latisse) or similar medications available as eyedrops for glaucoma treatment. ...Read more
Read the side effect: Profile of each before deciding whether you want to use an anti glaucoma drops to have longer lashes that could possibly change the color of your irises darker permanently. I would say neither! When you stop using it, it no longer works. Why put yourself at risk? There may be some more natural, organic alternative solution that is less medical a problem, and more plant based, and safer. ...Read more

Is there a family history of large heads. If there is any concern, speak to your pediatrician andi f necessary have an ultrasound done. ...Read more
