Can your skin absorb vitamins to cure a tumor?

Can your skin absorb vitamins to cure a tumor?

No: There are no vitamins which can cure cancer, no matter how they are taken. Rubbing them on the skin won't affect deeper tissues and this is no cure for skin cancer. If you have a cancer, see an oncologist and get appropriate treatment.

Best multivitamin or vitamin to get rid of candida overgroqth and scalp fungus I'm taking gnc probiotic 10 billion conplex?

Best multivitamin or vitamin to get rid of candida overgroqth and scalp fungus I'm taking gnc probiotic 10 billion conplex?

Scalp problems: Vitamins in this setting have only limited use. Best to see a doctor for proper evaluation. In this modern age, vitamin deficiencies are rare as long as you eat a balanced diet (and are not vegetarian). I advocate getting vitamins, minerals and micronutrients from food rather than wasting money on supplements. It's a big marketing scam. Try selenium sulphide shampoo while you wait for an apt.

Toenails are separating from nail bed, and hair falls out in large amounts, cause? No fungus, no TSH deficiency, no vitamin deficiency...

Toenails: I don't know of a link between nail bed issues and hair loss. However I think it is important for you to have your doctor refer you to podiatrist (foot doctor) while your doctor is looking into you hair loss.

Limited use: Vitamins taken by mouth has little impact on dry skin unless the doses are high, such as with vitamin a, but there is a risk of toxicity and as such that dosing would not be recommended.

Skin tone, eyesight: Vitamin a is essential for healthy eyes and skin. It exists naturally in liver, butter, lean meat, and eggs; and its precursor, beta-carotene, is in colorful vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes and spinach.
