Discuss with ENT: Ask your physician for a referral to discuss your concerns with an ENT specialist. These surgeons are the ones who would perform the surgery; however, know that they will likely not take out your tonsils for occasional strep throat. There are risks to any surgery and risk/benefits needs to be weighed. Either way, they can examine you, let you know the parameters they use to decide on removal. ...Read more

You can't: Specifically get rid of lower abdominal fat by spot reducing. If you lose weight a portion of that weight loss will reduce abdominal fat. Additionally, core toning exercises will help you stand more erect & improve your appearance. To lose weight keep up your physical activity & ensure that calories burned exceed calories consumed. No matter what ads promise – you can't spot reduce without surgery. ...Read more

Persistent BV...: ...or recurrence are quite common, very frustrating. Consistent condom use for a few weeks sometimes helps. BV is not necessarily an STD, but sex contributes. (But treating partners doesn't help.) Preventive treatment with vaginal metronidazole (MetroGel®) or boric acid vaginal capsules often can help. If your doc is unfamiliar with these, find a gyn with interest in infectious diseases. Gd luck! ...Read more

Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'. ...Read more

I have stretch marks everywhere and i know i can't get rid of them but how to make it less noticeable?

Difficult to treat: Stretch marks are very difficult to treat. The only way to completely get rid of them is to cut them out (like a tummy tuck). There are treatments that can improve them. These include laser treatments like Laser Genesis, micro needling, PRP injections, fat transfers. Cosmetic coverage (spray tan or body makeup) may temporarily help the appearance (I never recommend UV tanning). ...Read more

Depends...: ...On what is causing it. If your skin is just thin, so that the underlying bluish muscle is visible, there's nothing you can do other than makeup.

No treatment works for everybody. ...Read more
