Pressured to use fairness cream. Why must i? 16

No need for cream: There are a number of cultures that emphasize the virtue of fair skin as a mark of status. However, you absolutely do not need to use skin lighteners, especially at the age of 16. If you are concerned about dark spots, there are a number of products that may help, such as sunscreen, retinols, and medications. ...Read more

Itchy Scalp: You most likely have a condition called Seborrheic Dermatitis. Grease 3X/week will not help this condition. You can try T-Gel shampoo 2-4 times a week and Clobetasol Solution which is a prescription cortisone twice a day for two weeks, rest one week then repeat. You should see improvement within two to four weeks. ...Read more

Non-sedating meds: Several things you can do to treat or prevent eczema and itching - non-sedating anti-histamines like loratadine, cetirizine, and fexofenadine (no rx needed) can be helpful, especially if there is an allergic component. Using a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser and applying moisturizer, right after baths or showers, can help. Avoiding long, hot showers helps. Ointment-based triamcinolone or stronger. ...Read more

Why must I avoid when using a douche to clean my vagina?

Why must I avoid when using a douche to clean my vagina?

Douching itself: Douching is not necessary to "clean" the vagina as it is like a "self cleaning oven". The more you disrupt the normal vaginal fluids that keep the ph(aciditiy/alkalinity) balance constant the more you set yourself up for serious vaginal infections or worse. So, please stop the practice. ...Read more

I am using Rephresh vaginal gel to balance my PH, can this be used whenever I feel as though my ph balance is off or do I have to use it every 3 days?

I am using Rephresh vaginal gel to balance my PH, can this be used whenever I feel as though my ph balance is off or do I have to use it every 3 days?

It can be used: If you are just trying to prevent problems it can be used as often as you want but if you have been having problems like BV, it works best to start out using it every 3 days after you complete treatment for the first 6 weeks or so as your normal vaginal bacteria grow back. It will not treat BV by itself no matter how often you use it. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I want to know what face cream we can use for eczma , we have had all moisturisers and nothing is working !

Eczema: Heavy moisturizing creams and lotions are effective for treating eczema. Examples include Neutrogena or Aquaphor. The face is a bit trickier because the skin is more sensitive and it is important to avoid the eyes. Steroid creams are effective in the treatment of eczema. This will require consultation with your internist for dermatologist. ...Read more

When using Ben oxide,for how many minutes shall it stay on my skin,and if I have to dry them myself after a time,what should I use to dry it?

Leave to dry: Hello Hawraz - Benzyl peroxide applied to the face for acne should wet the area of the pimples without excess and allowed to dry on your face. This provides the antiseptic effect reducing the skin bacteria know to be part of the cause for acne. I'm sure you are aware of the clothing staining it can cause. Benzyl peroxide is a common choice but other treatments are available if ineffective. ...Read more

Hi there what should I do if I have burn sideeffect from using clotrimazole 2 % cream in men underforeskin \u0026 penis? I have stop putting on

Here are some...: Stopping drug use is smart in suspecting side effect of drug used. Applying clotrimazole cream to foreskin is assuming you might have yeast infection which is usually related with long tight foreskin with inadequate cleansing & drying. If so, circumcision is the sure thing to do for long-term care. So, seek professional evaluation and counseling so to decide the definite way of care. Best wish... ...Read more

Should you use just any regular razor to shave my legs and what type of cream could I use? I'm really scared to cut myself (about to be my 1st time

Should you use just any regular razor to shave my legs and what type of cream could I use? I'm really scared to cut myself (about to be my 1st time

Any is probably ok: Shaving for the first time can be a bit nerve wracking! Be sure to use a new razor (will have a sharp blade and give you a better shave). The first time you should shave in the direction of hair growth (down on the legs) and use a shaving cream. I would avoid the bumpy areas like knees and ankles the first couple of times and use caution going over the shin bone. ...Read more

How often should you replace your shaver to prevent hidden bacteria? I use intuition, I have really sensitive skin. And i love it. Thanks dr.

Intuition is fine: The frequency with which you change a razor really depends upon how dull it is getting with repetitive use. Organisms on its surface are less likely to produce infection than the organisms on the surface of the skin. ...Read more

Contact lens can: change eye color dramatically. Otherwise, you can't change your iris color, unless intentional with Latisse (bimatoprost) or other glaucoma drops that's not recommended at all to try for cosmetic reasons. You may want to talk with your dermatologist regarding scars, and sometimes cosmetic lasers are helpful (Laser Genesis) in remodeling collagen in the dermis to actually help reduce the scar completely. ...Read more
