Citrus fruits make me phlemgy and coughy. Do I have a citrus allergy and would it apply to other foods and lotions with citric acid?

Citrus fruits make me phlemgy and coughy. Do I have a citrus allergy and would it apply to other foods and lotions with citric acid?

Yes and no: If all citrus cause symptoms then you are allergic to an allergen shared by all. On the other hand, some people are only allergic to one and not to another and others just the allergen in the peel and not the "meat". Citric acid is a chemical and not an allergen but may sting the skin a little and thus would not bother you when present in a skin lotion. ...Read more

I just used Oxy pads containing salicylic acid for my acne on my face and neck and put lotion on top... Is this okay?

I just used Oxy pads containing salicylic acid for my acne on my face and neck and put lotion on top... Is this okay?

See below.: Putting too much lotion on top of the areas you are treating with OxyPads will negate some of the drying effect that you are supposed to have with the salicylic acid. I would recommend just using the lotion sparingly on areas that have become dry. If the medicated pads are very drying and aren't helping your acne, please talk to your doctor about an alternative treatment. ...Read more

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
