Hello, is there a medical procedure or any fastest way to get rid of pityriasis versicolor? Pls. Im so devastated for 2years because its in my face

Uncommon on face: Pv is uncommon on the face due to oil in skin but can happen - are you sure of diagnosis? If so, would use topical anti-fungal cream 2 x per day and apply selsun blue at bed and let dry overnight and wash off in am. If severe and doesn't respond to topicals then your family doc can prescribe oral antifungal - usually 1 pills a few days apart followed by exercise to sweat it "onto" skin works well. ...Read more

Diagnosed with 1.9 CM thickened endometrium. I thought I started my period but Im only spotting. Will I need any kind of medical procedure to fix It?

Diagnosed with 1.9 CM thickened endometrium. I thought I  started my period but Im only spotting. Will I need any kind of medical procedure to fix It?

Depends: 1.9cm thickened endometrium at your age is not bad. I do not have any information on your menstrual cycles. If your menstrual cycles are irregular you may need an endometrial biopsy to make sure you do not have endometrial hyperplasia (precancer cells in your endometrium). If you have normal regular cycles it is not that crucial. You may need an ultrasound at the end of your period to decide. ...Read more

How bad would your eyes have to be to have to have cataracts removed by laser. Dr. said, I need the procedure done in both eyes. Need medical advice?

How bad would your eyes have to be to have to have cataracts removed by laser.  Dr. said, I need the procedure done in both eyes.  Need medical advice?

Laser not necessary: Cataract surgery is usually performed when vision is about 20/40 or worse, however it depends on many factors. One thing I tell my patients, is that if the cataract is causing vision loss great enough to prevent them from doing the things they need or want to do, then it is time (this varies from person to person). Use of a laser is not necessary for good quality cataract surgery. ...Read more

I'm 3 weeks off hydrocodone but have to take 5mg oxy and 1mg lorazepam for a medical procedure, will this set back my recovery?

Meaning it can be done but you really need to take a relapse risk seriously. Many have relapse by going into similar senerio all on there own. Need accountabilit. ...Read more
