How do I get my eyebrows to grow separate?

How do I get my eyebrows to grow separate?

Nothing simple: You can temporarily pluck the eyebrows in the area undesired. Laser hair removal can also eliminate them in a more permanent. There are no topical medications safe to use around the eyes that will help.

How can we seperate mineral salts of water?

How can we seperate mineral salts of water?

Boiling->Condensing: If you are trying to get water that does not have any salt, the easiest way to purchase distilled water from the grocery store. If you are trying to remove salt from water, the only way to do this is to distil the water. Distillation is the process of purifying a liquid by boiling it and condensing its vapors.

Are we separate from godliness if we don't go to church?

Godliness: No. There are many ways to godliness. Hindus believe in self realization and this does not require regular visits to temple/church. Muslims require you to surrender to prayer 4-5 times a day.

Can you tell me what it's like to have a "separate sesamoid"?

Can you tell me what it's like to have a "separate sesamoid"?

Maybe fine?: You did not say if the sesamoid is in your foot or hand. Sesamoid bones are small bones that are embedded in tendons to improve muscle effectiveness. Usually they develop from a single ossification center. Sometimes they may develop from two or more ossification centers. This is generally asymptomatic, but if painful it should be checked out by the appropriate hand or foot specialist

Could you tell me why I need to have 2 seperate exams to get contacts and glasses?

Could you tell me why I need to have 2 seperate exams to get contacts and glasses?

No: Not in my practice. All the information can be optained during your exam. Unusual types of refractions and ocular shapes and astigmatism may require special contactys to be ordered. Most patients can be fit at the same time of their exam. Logistics-- every practice does thing differently.

Can you tell me reasons why I need to have 2 seperate exams to get contacts and glasses?

3 things required: To get glasses, you need an eye exam and a refraction, the test to determine the glasses prescription. To get contact lens, you also need a contact lens fitting, the service the doctor performs to determine the best contact lenses for you.

When u get tested for stud and came out negative does that mean you don't have herpes as well or is it a separate test?

When u get tested for stud and came out negative does that mean you don't have herpes as well or is it a separate test?

Depends: You need to ask what was tested. Sometimes your doctor only tests for some of the STDs. Herpes frequently isn't tested unless you are having symptoms. Each STD has a different test. Some are tested by drawing blood and some by getting cultures of the cervix. Best wishes!

Epiduo has two medications in it. Is there any advantage or disadvantage to using Epiduo, compared to buying the two separate medications to use?

Epiduo has two medications in it. Is there any advantage or disadvantage to using Epiduo, compared to buying the two separate medications to use?

Effort, doses, price: Epiduo is ready to use but copay can be high, using adapalene and benzoyl peroxide separately will require some effort, not sure if you can achieve the same recipe or make it worth the effort, talk to your doc about other options, I am available for second opinion if needed

If my dr said he was testing me for both types of herpes, and both test results came back separate, what kind of test was this? Type specific or not?

See below.: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, you were probably tested for antibodies to Herpes 1 and 2. What were the results? Antibody tests can distinguish between these two types. What else were you tested for? Practice safe sex!

My daughtr, 16 doesn't like eating onions and separates it from food. Is is ok? What should I do?

Nothing: I do not like onions and so do not eat them, unless fully cooked or sauteed. Nothing has gone wrong with me. Perhaps ask her if she would eat them if prepared differently.

Can pain in your scapula/shoulder blade associated with a separated shoulder?

Shoulder Blade Pain: Pain from a separated shoulder usually is limited to the a-c joint where the shoulder separated. Is your scapula pain right over the shoulder blade? Has your separated shoulder healed? If you have scapula pain when you raise your arm up sideway (abduction), but no pain at the a-c joint then I do not see a relationship and would look for another cause.

If you have high colestrol and get pills for it how does the body seperate it out from the body, is it urin?

If you have high colestrol and get pills for it how does the body seperate it out from the body, is it urin?

You make less: The most popular cholesterol pills prevent you from making the stuff. This is simplistic but basically accurate. Other meds have other mechanisms of action. Cholesterol is a lipid so it's not water-soluble and won't be leaving in the urine.
