I want to change my skin pigmentation. Is there a way to do so?

Yes: Although there is no safe way to permanently change your pigmentation, some topical treatments such as hydroquinone, can cause temporary lightening of skin pigment and spots. A little less effective but safer for long term use are products containing kojic acid and arbutin. These products work by suppressing melanin production. Medical grade products work better than over the counter creams. ...Read more

Is there a pill that can make skin darker/tanner? If so any side affects. I just want a way to get tan

NO. : There is no pill which is safe and that can make your natural skin darker. The color of your skin has to do with the amount of melanin in the deep layer of your skin, and you don't want to take a drug that fools around with mother nature here. Take a vacation in a warm sunny place, use spf 15 skin lotion…..Or just fogetabotit. ...Read more

Avoid the sun: Skin "bleaching cream" is actually available otc--lustra but takes time to work..Also, it is not permanent because exposure to the sun will re-darken the skin.

Good luck. ...Read more

What if my clitoris happened to enlarge and hang, is there any way for it to get back to normal? How to get a hanging clitoris?
Does it happen to everyone?

Hello. : Hello. The labia and clitoral hood (the layer of tissue overlying the clitoris) can become hypertrophied (enlarged) for a number of reasons: topical hormones applied to the labia/ clitoris; systemic female hormones; damage from giving birth; chronic skin inflammation of that area; stretching /pulling due to sexual intercourse or masturbation and genetics are some possible causes. I recommend that you be evaluated by your doctor to see if the cause can be determined. No, the excess hanging tissue of the clitoris or the surrounding tissue does ot happen to every woman. Some women opt to have a clitoral hood reduction. They may feel more positive about the appearance of their clitoris and labia if this is done. Also, it there is excess tissue surrounding the clitoris it could decrease sexual arousal . I hope this information is helpful. ...Read more
