When drilling into a fiberglass tub, did not have proper face mask in place. This caused inhalation of fiberglass. What can I do to fix the irritation?

When drilling into a fiberglass tub, did not have proper face mask in place. This caused inhalation of fiberglass. What can I do to fix the irritation?

Difficult: Fiberglass inhalation is considered relatively harmless. If the irritation (especially cough) has persisted over weeks, however, following a single exposure, this may be the "reactive airways dysfunction" that affected so many rescue workers after 9/11. A pulmonologist can offer some help. Good luck. ...Read more

What does "de-sat'd" mean? While heavily sedated with morphine following major surgery, a nurse entered my room and without waking me clamped an oxygen mask over my face. The experience was alarming! her explanation (above) did not satisfy.

What does "de-sat'd" mean? While heavily sedated with morphine following major surgery, a nurse entered my room and without waking me clamped an oxygen mask over my face.  The experience was alarming!  her explanation (above) did not satisfy.

The : The saturation of oxygen in your blood is often monitored by a pulse oximeter, a device attached to the surface of your body, usually on the finger tip, toes or earlobe. It measures the content of oxygenated hemoglobin in your red cells. While not as accurate as a blood test, it is readily available. Oxygen saturation is expressed as a percentage, a number ranging from 0 to 100, normally on room air, the oxygen saturation is greater than 98%. The saturation reflects the content in the blood reasonably well in the range of normal range of acid levels and oxygen in most individuals. However, the saturation is affected by the amount of inhaled oxygen, the respiratory drive to pull oxygen into your lungs, changes in acid levels in the blood (such as seen in severe infections or kidney failure), problems with the lungs itself (such as excess fluid or pneumonia). After surgery, the combined effects of anesthesia and narcotics tend to depress the respiratory system, such that oxygen is not being drawn into the lungs (usually because of oversedation). This leads to less oxygen in the lungs and a drop in the oxygen levels and thus a drop in the saturation - thus the term: "de-sat" or desaturation. This can be easily remedied by reducing narcotics, or reversing narotic effect (e.g. Narcan), arousing the individual, and/or adding supplemental oxygen. Thus the use of the oxygen mask, which increases the saturation, but does not address the reason for oversedation. ...Read more

What is better face wash and witch hazel or face wash and benzoyl peroxide?

What is better face wash and witch hazel or face wash and benzoyl peroxide?

Multiple: Skin specialists recommend face washes based on the condition of the person's skin and what they want to achieve. Using witch hazel will dry out the skin because it has alcohol (not great for the face) and benzoyl peroxide is drying, has some antibacterial action, and is helpful for acne. If your face is dry, you may want a less drying cleanser; if oily, you can try salicylic acid. ...Read more

Blackheads all over my face especially my chin, nose, cheeks and forehead  I use a blackhead face scrub in the shower but it doesn't help?

Don't scrub!: Your face isn't a pot - don't scrub it. As to what treatment is best for you, each individual responds differently to different treatments, so there is no one "most effective" treatment. A dermatologist can tailor a treatment based on your skin type and the variety of acne you have. ...Read more

Safe: Fractional lasers are an effective treatment for facial wrinkles. Although risk of permanent scar and skin color changes is less than older lasers and deep chemical peels, improper use of a fractional laser can have similar complications. Seek treatment from a qualified physician (dermatologist, facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon) with ample experience in use of such lasers. ...Read more
