Not error: When using a testosterone gel, your testosterone level will vary depending on when the blood sample is drawn in relation to when you put on the gel. Levels peak about 4-6 hrs after putting on the gel. A level of 1100 would not be unusual if drawn at the peak. ...Read more

My metrodonizale gel says it expired on 5/17 its 11/17 can I still use it?

My metrodonizale gel says it expired on 5/17 its 11/17 can I still use it?

Probably OK, but...: Drug expiration dates are very conservative. Drugs are not necessarily less effective or have increased risk of side effects after the expiration date. It's just that they haven't been tested beyond that date. But unless stored unsafely (e.g. an especially hot area, like in a car on hot days), they usually are fine. However, for a new infection, best not to self treat. See a doctor to confirm. ...Read more

Is it advisable to use feminine intimate wash gels? Do they work? And are they harmful?

Is it advisable to use feminine intimate wash gels? Do they work? And are they harmful?

Probably not helpful: Feminine washes for the most part are likely not helpful. The vaginal pH is meant to be kept a certain level to keep the bad bacteria in check. Changing that pH may make you susceptible to infections, itching and offensive odors. With that said certain brands (i.e. Vagisil and summers eve) claim they make a pH balanced wash which may not be as harmful. ...Read more

I am using femsinol A gel for pimplemarks and Retino A0.025 for warts and freckles. Is it good to use them?

I am using femsinol A gel for pimplemarks and Retino A0.025 for warts and freckles. Is it good to use them?

Retin A [tretinoin]: Retin A [tretinoin] is very useful for acne and brown spots. There are more potent forms in case of poor response. Clindamycin is usually a waste of money. Neither of these is of much use for warts. Sometimes Retin A is used for planar warts on the face but it does not do much. ...Read more

Why does my skin dry out if I use bar soap but it doesn't if I use something like old spice or axe shower gel?

Why does my skin dry out if I use bar soap but it doesn't if I use something like old spice or axe shower gel?

High pH: Cleansers with a high ph (like many soaps) can strip skin of lipids and proteins, leading to dryness, irritation, redness, and, in some cases, even broken skin leading to infection. For this reason, I tend to avoid any cleansers with a high concentration of sodium bicarbonate (with a high ph), as well as most bar soaps. Gels typically contain ingredients that lock in moisture. ...Read more

Is summer eve's vag wash safe? NOt the douche, just Use for external washing, gel like texture, like body wash.

But it's unnecessary: The external only product is probably safe. But it's also not necessary. A warm wash w/ the same item you use all over yourself is enough. If you really have an odor that is bad - it's a reason for an OBGYN exam - not a cover-up. If there's an infection - you need to cure it, not hide it. But yes, use is okay if you're healthy otherwise. ...Read more

Tonight is my last night I have to take flaygl gel for bv but there's still more medicine left should I use it all or juat stick to the 5 days worth?

Finish it all: Finish it all. It's wiser to over-treat than take a chance of under-treating BV. However, metronidazole (Flagyl) gel is not usually the best treatment. If it works, that's great. But if your odor, discharge or other symptoms continue or return after treatment, speak with your doctor about oral treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
