Does mix of aspirin and visine work on pimples?

Does mix of aspirin and visine work on pimples?

Wouldn't advise it: There are over the counter products with aspirin like chemicals in them at low concentrations. I would never advise anyone to try to mix up aspirin creating such a gel because you would likely cause a chemical burn on your face.

Pinguecula: Sounds like a pinguecula, which is a deposit/build up on the white part of the eye (sclera) due to uv light and dryness of the eyes. You can use artificial tears, and use a cap and/or sunglasses when outdoors. Stop the visine, and use artificial tears one drop 4 times a day. If it is not getting better see an eye md.

My doc prescribed Minocyline hydrochloride 100mg tablet 15 tablets for acne and pimples. Can u tell me how to take these tablets for best results?

Read the label: You need to ask the Prescribing Doctor so that you have continuity of care as you and your treating Dr. Should have developed a plan of treatment together. Not to mention, there should be labeled instructions on the bottle from your Dr. Which would usually be once daily for acne-BUT ask the Dr.

Can you take tetrahydrozoline with diphenhydramine?

Can you take tetrahydrozoline with diphenhydramine?

Yes, but: Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) is a sedating antihistamine that one should take only in the evening. Tetrahydrozoline is a vasoconstrictor (constricts blood vessels), used in eye drops. It should not be used for more than 5 days, because it may cause damage to the lining of the eye (conjunctiva). It is better to use oral fexofenadine or cetirizine and eye drops such as ketotifen,

Can lidocaine hydrochloride be used for acne?

Can lidocaine hydrochloride be used for acne?

Xylocaine (lidocaine): Xylocaine (lidocaine) is a local anesthetic. It is not used for acne. For acne, try frequently washing hands and face and avoiding fatty and sugary foods and drinks. Drink lots of water, and try over the counter acne medications. Your doctor can prescribe stronger medications. Well trimmed, clean hair also helps.

Can Lamisil (terbinafine hydrochloride) give me acne?

No: Probably not. In any case, you've had an acne flare; you usually won't find the cause. Start using topical benzoyl peroxide for a few months; if this doesn't clear you, get with your physician.

Could antibiotic: Minomycin (in Australia), or minocycline hydrochloride, (prescribed as 3 month course - acne) cause suicidal tendencies/ depression?

Could antibiotic: Minomycin (in Australia), or minocycline hydrochloride, (prescribed as 3 month course - acne) cause suicidal tendencies/ depression?

Not likely, but: There've been some reported mood change effects - not common and severity is not mentioned. If you have a tendency toward this sort of intense depression, it might be wise to avoid this elective medication in favor of an alternative approach. Only you and your doctor know how crucial acne Tx is for you. One ting that may help is knowing it's not a meaningful depression - just short-term chemistry.

I have a very small painless pimple like lump ony Left arm just below my armpit should I be worried p.s I eat a lot of butter?

Time will tell: If a pimple or is red inflamed it will resolve in a few days. If a hard lump present for a while, it won't go away on its own and you would need to see a doc. Butter hasn't that much to contribute in this discussion.

Difficult to say: Skin diagnosis requires a visual assessment. Recurrent spots can arise from a variety of sources from food allergy to bug bites. An office evaluation may help define the cause.

I'm suffering a sudden appearence of pimples or what looks like pimples on my back. Can it be because m eating too much spicy food and chilli s?

I'm suffering a sudden appearence of pimples or what looks like pimples on my back. Can it be because m eating too much spicy food and chilli s?

Likely not: It's unlikely that spicy foods has anything to do with the wart-like pimples or skin lesions in on your back. Food allergies does not present that way. If it's pimple, it should go away by itself. Otherwise, you would need to see your local doctor so you can have proper diagnosis. We need to see the skin lesions to know what it is.
