For hyperkeratotic skin diseases, which is more better for sensitive skin - lactic acid lotion (lac-hydrin) or urea-based creams?

For hyperkeratotic skin diseases, which is more better for sensitive skin - lactic acid lotion (lac-hydrin) or urea-based creams?

Both used: It really depends on the percentages of each medication. Many preparations have both urea and Lactic Acid in them. Your skin is also unique and what might appear to be gentler might give you a worse reaction than the so-called potent preparation. If you are treating keratosis pilaris (kp) then you might seek the help of a dermatologist or even have a preparation compounded. ...Read more

Can using imported skin cosmetics contribute to causing cancer?

Possibly.: These products may not be regulated by the U.S., so one might not be sure what is in them. They might have chemicals that are carcinogens in them, or they might have chemicals that can contribute to skin cancer. If they are supposed to protect against the sun, they might not do it, and cause cancer that way. It might be wise to use caution, and get a consumer review if possible prior to use. ...Read more

Are objects placed on skin (spoons, metals, plastic, etc.) that stick to skin (chest and forehead) normal, common, or rare?  Is it a skin condition?

Objects and skin: If someone is able to stick objects to skin and is able to keep them suspended there, this would certainly not be considered to be within the realm of the norm. I have heard of such cases but I would think they would be discovered only within the realm of "Ripleys Believe It or Not" or Circuses, and I would imagine the reason for this phenomenon, is unknown. ...Read more

Both!: Acute sunburn causes more skin damage, and may increase risk of melanoma somewhat more than long-tern sun exposure, which still causes wrinkles, spots, and skin cancers as well. Radiation damage is cumulative over a lifetime, so both are not good! sort of like many toxic things--a little over a long time will kill you just as dead as a lot all at once! ...Read more
