I'm using kojic gel for dark under arms, inner thighs & groin area. Is it effective & does it have any side effects. I'm ttc. Is it safe to use. Thanks?

Yes, but be careful.: These products are over the counter and therefore loosely regulated. But in the right formulation kojic acid exfoliates the dead skin which is needed for the whitening part of the process to work so no need for an exfoliating product, before using these products for your darker areas. ...Read more

Antibiotic: Boils are purulent bacterial infections of hair follicles, groin and axilla are conductive to multiple/recurrent infections due to excessive moisture.

I had a full body wax for the first time. I have broken out into very large rashes including on my arms groin and entire buttocks. What should I do?  

I had a full body wax for the first time. I have broken out into very large rashes including on my arms groin and entire buttocks. What should I do?  

Time, cold bath: It's much more likely to be from the trauma of having your hair ripped out than a potential allergic reaction to the waxing product. This will likely improve over anywhere from a few hours to a day or so, and a cold-water bath or shower may feel good and relieve some of the redness/pain. Creams/products are unlikely to help a rash of this type. ...Read more

I have nair chemical burns on my under arms, legs, and groin area. How do I treat them and how long before they heal and the discomfort goes away?

Sex 2.5 years ago. Odd sensory symptoms in groin/thigh initially. No sores. After about 2 years I began constant burn feeling in upper body/arms. HSV?

Seems strange: Hi
Sorry to hear that you've been dealing with these symptoms. It sounds a little strange for HSV to manifest in this way. It's very easy to get checked but I suspect that your symptoms are not from HSV. May be reasonable to think about getting a formal eval from a local doc in addition to the STD check. Hope this helps ...Read more

I have had small clusters of red bumps forming on my wrists, inside arms, torso, and groin. They are not itchy. I also have Crohn's disease?

Red Bumps on Wrist: Even without doing anything different, it could still be an allergic reaction. Allergies can develop to things you've never been allergic to before...Basically your system gets overloaded. There's also the chance it could be some sort of bug bites...Maybe mites or something hiding in your home. There are also some skin conditions that cause itching and bumps...Like eczema. ...Read more

Re mirtazipine if I don't go to sleep immediately I get almost pre-orgasmic but unpleasant feeling in my groin which ends in the involuntary jerking of my arms and legs. Goes on and on until I get up"?

Mirtazipine sleep: This medication affects the sleep and is dose dependent. I would encourage to discuss with your doctor to adjust the dose to address getting to sleep issue.

How can I treat boils/abcess on my bum, in between my legs/groin area, under my breasts and under arms?

However, what you are describing sounds like hidradenitis suppurativa. See http://mayocl. In/pyza6t.

Neurontin (gabapentin): Neurontin (gabapentin) in very rare circumstances can in fact cause lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes), but given your history I am very glad that you had a biopsy.
