Hair And Skin Problems
Skin and hair issue.:
This depends on the symptoms. Do you have male pattern hair loss? Thinning? Patches of hair loss? What are your skin issues?

Hello I am taking skin hair and nail multivitamins. However my skin problems are really hormonal breakouts. Can I take hormone balancing tablets too?
Yes...: Estrogen is the predominant hormone in the first half of the menstrual cycle. Progesterone is the main one in the second half. Both hormones fall to lower levels as menstrual bleed approaches, but a woman's testosterone stays at a fairly constant level--having relatively higher levels before and during menstruation, causing acne. OCP's can raise estrogen levels, reducing this effect. ...Read more

Yes: Detergents and soaps are caustic chemicals. Too much can irritate the skin leading to an irritant contact dermatitis. Studies show that we don't even need detergents in our clothing washers, just the gyration itself cleans the clothes.

Smoking and stamina: Smoking certainly decreases stamina, both directly by decreasing lung function, damaging lung tissue and causing respiratory bronchiolitis or other interstitial diseases.

Difficult to Answer: Not fair. What works for one person might not work for another with the same exact skin. Unfortunately, no herbal treatments are fda-approved or tested, so I simply remind people, "let the buyer beware." I recommend hypoallergenic lotions as the best initial therapy. Dry skin is a huge cause of many skin problems. ...Read more

What parasite?: I'm not sure what you mean or what parasites you're referring to. Parasites are not common causes of skin problems in the U.S. Far more common is delusional parasitosis, a psychiatric condition in which patient think they're infected with parasites. It's difficult to treat, because it's very hard to convince the sufferers that they need psychiatric help rather than antiparasitic medications. ...Read more
Possibly: Sea water is saltier than the body's fluids; so it can draw water from the skin, causing dryness. Condition is even worse in bodies of extremely salty water like great salt lake or dead sea. Thus, good idea to rinse off with fresh water after swimming/playing in ocean & to apply moisturizer. ...Read more
