My wife recently started having constant itching all over her body. She does not have any rashes on her. She has not changed any medications, soaps,?

See a Doctor: There are many conditions that cause diffuse itching without rash. Most of these situations probably represent early stages of what will eventually cause a noticeable rash. These conditions include allergies, dry skin, liver and kidney disease, and certain B cell malignancies such as lymphoma. Keep her skin moist, use cool compresses and try an anti-histamine (which will also help her to rest). ...Read more

You: You likely had an allergic reaction to the soap you used. Try over the counter Hydrocortisone cream to the external vaginal area. If this persists you may be dealing with a yeast infection, you can then try a yeast infection cream. If you still have symptoms visit your doctor again.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Iam with fair complextion but iam not satisfy with my complextion please please suggest me any skin whitning drug or soap which is available in india?

Sunscreen: There is nothing that will permanently give you a fair complexion, unfortunately. If your complexion is already fair, then your main goal is to keep it that way by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen spf 50 or higher and stay out of midday sun between hours of 10 am and 4 pm. Any creams or meds that you use to lighten complexion can actually lead to mottled pigmentation and more problems. ...Read more

Knee wound. Laceration with 5cm diameter, a bit deep. Disinfected it with betadine, water/soap. It formed a green layer, that came of. How to treat?

Lacerations: Ideally lacerations to the body should be closed within 12 hours but there are exceptions. It sounds as if you're far out of this window. You should monitor for signs of fever, redness, discharge, or severe pain. I would still recommend seeing a medical provider to evaluate your wound and make sure your tetanus status is up to date. ...Read more

Does diluting castile soap change the ph?

No.: PH will remain the same. Most of these soaps are designed to be pretty neutral with an excess of oil to lye ratio in the production. Castille soap has to sit for a long time to cure so there is very little unreacted lye. However lye is very basic and leaves the soap with a pH about 8. That's pretty normal for soaps. ...Read more

Is dr bronners tingly castille soap too much for my undercarriage?

Go easy: If by "undercarriage" you're referring to your delicate parts, the answer is no, especially for the vagina and anal areas. Harsh soaps can cause drying, cracking and itching, and should be avoided. In fact, it's best to minimize the use of soap at all: just a little water is enough. If you do use dr.

The eating of non-food items is not "normal", so should be evaluated by a primary care doctor. Referral to a psychologist or psychiatrist may help, if one is unable to stop eating objects. ...Read more
