It : It is a good thing that you asked before putting out money for any of these products. They do not work. However there are so many men who are either enamored by the commercials or who are desperate to have a larger penis that they are willing to pay large sums of money without checking it out first. ...Read more

Hello doctors I know you cant recommend any product but what ingredients do I have to find in a hair removal cream thank you?

Hello doctors I know you cant recommend any product but what ingredients do I have to find in a hair removal cream thank you?

Thyoglycolates: Most hair removal creams contain thioglycolate sulfates and salts. They work by breaking down the protein in the hair where it exits from the follicle, causing it to fall off. But don't count on the labels to find the best choice. They may be confusing, incomplete or too small to read. Stick with products that are described as "mild" "gentle" or "hypoallergenic" and follow the instructions! ...Read more

I was wondering what are the foods you should & shouldn't eat if you want to get rid of man breasts?

I was wondering what are the foods you should & shouldn't eat if you want to get rid of man breasts?

Food isn't the key: Internet sites about what to eat and not eat for this and that are basically all made up for entertainment and cheap money from gullible people. If you have true gynecomastia, plan to spend a morning in your local surgeon's orrice. Pseudogynecomastia (fat beneath the breasts) will respond to liposuction and fitness training. Don't waste your time with "pop" internet junk. ...Read more

There : There are geneticists that can be counseled prior to becoming pregnant. Both you and your partner will be interviewed and based on history genetic testing for certain disease can be done. On the other hand you can wait until you are pregnant and have your doctor schedule a visit with a prenatal genetic counselors. They will be able to determine your baby's chances of having a genetic disorder or birth defect. The role of the counselor is to make sure you understand all the medical and technical information, and to help you navigate through your feelings so that you can make an informed choice if it comes to that. Good luck. ...Read more

I have moderate acne and using what my dermotalogist gave me however i wanted to know if there are any good home remedies like masks to make? Thanks

I have moderate acne and using what my dermotalogist gave me however i wanted to know if there are any good home remedies like masks to make? Thanks

Stick with doc: I'm never sure why people spend hundreds of dollars on doctors and medicine and then want "a home remedy" besides. If there was such a thing, your dermatologist would have suggested you do it in addition to or in place of what they have recommended for you. Many of these treatments can take months for maximum results, and you just need to hang in there and stop thinking there's something better. ...Read more

How can I tell if the fish oil pills i buy are good and not contaminated? What is a good safe brand?

How can I tell if the fish oil pills i buy are good and not contaminated? What is a good safe brand?

Molecular distilled: Good question. Fish oil can be contaminated with mercury, pcb's etc. A high-quality fish oil will say it has undergone "pharmaceutical grade molecular distillation" & independently assayed to find no detectable toxins. Ideally it will also be esterified with triglycerides to enhance absorption. Good brands include nordic naturals, designs for health, carlson & minami. Consider krill oil as well. ...Read more

What do you advise if I'm using cosmelite cream from 2 two months..i have become fairis it good to continue..wat should I do..?

Decrease frequency.: Hydroxyquinone is a great skin lightener, isn't it! The effects are not permanent though but you can use it less often. Try three times a week. if you see that your skin is darkening again you may need to use it more often,but you will always have to use it some, to maintain the appearance you wish. Don't get sunburned! Wear non-comedogenic sunscreen. Congrats! ...Read more
