Is commerical packaged orange juice available in store bad for acne prone skin ?

Is commerical packaged orange juice available in store bad for acne prone skin ?

No: It will not affect your skin. All acne can be managed today, and if this is a concern for you, and topical benzoyl peroxide has not been effective, your physician may be able to add topical Clindamycin or a topical retinoic acid derivative. If acne flareups still cannot be controlled, an oral antibiotic is helpful. The truth is that diet has little impact on acne -- even chocolate. Good luck. ...Read more

Do almonds (that you buy at the store to eat) contain cyanide or arsenic?

Do almonds (that you buy at the store to eat) contain cyanide or arsenic?

Concentration: Any food, organic or not, is likely to contain traces of the elements found in nature. So strictly speaking, any food you grow or buy will have traces of any chemical you can think of. However, does the presence of any element or chemical in vanishingly small quantities matter? You cannot avoid such things. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Contact dermatitis from clothes washed in machine contains nickel?

Contact dermatitis: I think your question is if clothes washed in a laundry machine could be contaminated with nickel? If this is your question then no, it is unlikely that machine would seep nickel into clothes. Try changing to fragrant-free, dye-free detergent to see if this helps. See an allergist to exam rash and provide further treatment and evaluation. Patch testing helpful to determine sensitivities. ...Read more

Other than infant sunscreen & lotion, shade hats, & cool clothing, what can I bring to protect from sun burn?

Sunburn prevention: Don't forget sunglasses, and to avoid exposure between 10AM-4PM. Umbrellas help, too. Remember the shade moves with the sun, especially if a child is in a shaded stroller. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/sunburn/basics/prevention/con-20031065 ...Read more

Currently on oral steroids for Asthma but still peak flow is around 350 and drops to around 260, soon as I got to work (clothing store) it starts off and continues all day and worked there 4 years now?

Occupational asthma?: Great that you are tracking with peak flow monitoring. Continue this mornings, evenings, at work and also on days off. Document it. If you are still recovering from a flare up such as after a cold then it could be any kind of dust, smoke or fumes including perfumes and off-gassing from new clothing that's irritating it. This may resolve once the flare is over. Continue inhaled steroids. ...Read more

Is it possible to catch strep throat from trying on clothing in a store? How long can the bacteria survive on cloth?

Is it possible to catch strep throat from trying on clothing in a store?  How long can the bacteria survive on cloth?

No worries: Life is full of possibilities, including catching strep throat while trying on clothes, but we don't worry about stuff like that. To catch strep in a dressing room, an infected person would do a huge sneeze and blow out infected droplets. The next shopper would open her mouth and suck in a huge breath of that same air, thus splattering the back of her throat with infected micro-droplets. Unlikely. ...Read more

Can LCMV do serious damage to newborn? I see some fresh rodent droppings in my back yard where I store things. I worry if any dust from these droppings can attach to my cloth when I go there and then get to my baby when I nurse.

Can LCMV do serious damage to newborn? I see some fresh rodent droppings in my back yard where I store things. I worry if any dust from these droppings can attach to my cloth when I go there and then get to my baby when I nurse.

Lymphocytic chorio-: meningitis is not a commonly reported infection in humans. Fortunately most infections are mild and often never diagnosed. However 1-5% of the US population has antibodies to this virus indicating prior infection. It seems to be more dangerous to a fetus in utero, not a newborn. Do everything you can to reduce exposure to rodents/rodent excrement by eradicating them inside and around your home. ...Read more

Are clothing made out of polyester fabric safe to wear?

Are clothing made out of polyester fabric safe to wear?

Safer now: Back 30 or 40 years ago, in the 1970's, polyester was appearing in stores everywhere, but could subject one to relentless teasing if one wore it amongst the wrong crowd. That polyester was rough and unforgiving, but modern new polyester is pretty good stuff. It's safe to wear. It's soft and lays well but being a plastic (petroleum product), it still causes static. Cotton is softer, with no static. ...Read more

What can I do about clothing that hurts by the end of the day?

What can I do about clothing that hurts by the end of the day?

Interesting question: Is the question asking what to do about discomfort caused by wearing certain clothing? (clothing itself is not alive and has no feelings.) a person could have some sensory nerve problems in the skin that signal pain when that part of the skin is touched by clothing (a dermatologist or neurologist can look into the matter). One can try wearing different fabrics to see if softer fabrics help. ...Read more

Can i tell me how i can keep clothing from sticking to a wound?

Can i tell me how i can keep clothing from sticking to a wound?

Simple Care best: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation ( red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more
