Hi doctors. Medication toner and betamethasome and gentamycin cream are good for face? What should apply first of these med?

What's it for?: This is the old-fashioned "valisone " cream for some of the eczema-type problems on the face. This is a prescription medication with very narrow indications. The Betamethasone can make infections worse; the gentamicin is worthless in the absence of infection. Unless you're doing this under the guidance of a physician who knows exactly what he/she is doing, put it away. ...Read more

Hi, what type of medication can I use to suppress my high libido? I feel that it's starting to put strain on my relationship.

Hmmm. . .: I would be less hasty to medicate, and more interested in why you feel your libido is too high. There may be a mismatch between your desire level and that of your partner. Is he or she depressed, which can affect sex drive? How are things in your relationship? Is sex a place where your conflicts come out? I suggest discussing w/a couple's therapist & your doc before rushing to medication. ...Read more

How do I get rid of a medication rash? Hi, I took Mucinex (guaifenesin) d sometime last week, now I believe it cause a rash throughout my torso and face. How can I get rid of it?

This: This is difficult to answer without a clinical examination, but typically a drug rash can linger for a little while. I would see a dermatologist to be sure the diagnosis is correct and they can possibly prescribe some topical steroids and possible oral therapies such as antihistamines/oral steroids or other appropriate treatments to help you. Does your rash kind of look like the rash below? I hope that helps a little! ...Read more
