How To Get Rid Of Ringworm At Home
Trichophyton is one of the common types of fungus that can infect the skin, called a "dermatophyte". It can cause ringworm of the skin (such as athlete's foot or jock itch) or of the scalp. It is usually diagnosed with a scraping of the skin and can be treated with topical medications if on the skin, or oral medicines if involving ...Read more
Many ways: You have a variety of choices and if for some reason your option has to be "natural", choose among sulfur, coal tar, selenium and ketoconazole, the latter a special gift from nature. If you get seriously sick, I hope you will opt for whatever works best regardless of origin. All types of medicine can and will help you. ...Read more
Scientific Rx: Ignore all the pop advice (diet, sexual abstinence, hygiene, not touching your face) and the home remedies (honey, lemon, and pepper are all cruel hoaxes). If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated (try up to 10% 2x/day) hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. Best wishes. ...Read more
Treat the cause : Avoid all cosmetics for 3 week or so. Do not use regular toothpaste that has sodium laural sulfate that laundry detergent in your toothpaste and get toothpaste free of this and fluoride or use baking soda or combined with table salt. If this does not clear look for food allergy. May use 1% hydrocortisone cream OTC for a few days ...Read more
"Azole" drug: If you've had a vaginal yeast infection before and now have same symptoms (mostly itching, not discharge), then try an over-the-counter treatment -- choose a product with active ingredient ending in "azole", e.g. miconazole, clotrimazole, etc. If main symptom is discharge and sexually active, probably not yeast, maybe STD. If any doubt at all, you have to see a doctor about it. Good luck! ...Read more
Skin care.: Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day ; use oil free products. No oily hair or heavy foundations. Try not to pop pimples. Avoid touching face (cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after strenuous exercise. Consider otc products (salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide). Retinoids/ comedone extractor can be helpful for black heads.

Molluscum : This is caused by a pox virus. It is contagious from person to person by direct contact, sharing towels, sharing bathwater, or even from swimming in the same pool. The condition is self-limited and goes away without treatment, although it can take many months. One can pick the bumps off, by stretching the skin tight between two fingers first, and removing the little ball inside. ...Read more
Not a good idea!: Freckles are naturally occurring skin lesions. Any attempt to remove them by home remedies is not recommended, potentially harmful to you and most likely will result in skin that looks "worse" than skin with freckles. Very fair skin and freckles (such as in northern Europeans) can increase risk of melanoma. However, south Asians with tan skin have reduced risk of melanoma, even with freckles. ...Read more
Get a real Rx: You deserve treatment. This is the 21st century and you've earned effective rx. I start with topical clindamycin, plus benzoyl peroxide if there aren't a lot of blackheads or a retinoic acid derivative if there are. A woman is often cleared by the oral contraceptive pill. If it's harder to manage, i add a systemic antibiotic appropriate for the person. Dermatologists have the big guns. Good luck. ...Read more
Mosquitoes: There are many products on the market that can be used to kill mosquitoes to include Natural Attractant Mosquito Traps, Zappers and Flying insect traps. Different models have varying degrees of sophistication. Some use ultraviolet light to lure & then trap them. Others can generate heat and carbon dioxide to attract mosquitoes. They eventually become dehydrated and die. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Don't do it...: Known to all, no one have ever been born perfectly. In real life, i will absolutely not advise anyone to do something to the pimple-like bump in the penis. If it is small ; not hurting, please leave it alone and don't do something by yourself to injure the penis leading to possible infection. If growing in size or hurting, see doc timely and it can be removed under local anesthesia by doc... ...Read more
Several treatments.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: i've seen them do more harm than good. Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Benzoyl peroxide: This is by far the best over-the-counter remedy. The "pop" remedies (tea tree oil, vinegar) may disappoint you. Acne is a non-lifestyle-related, non-hygiene-related, serious chronic illness. If it does not clear with benzoyl peroxide, please get with your physician for something that actually works. ...Read more
