Can using imported skin cosmetics contribute to causing cancer?

Can using imported skin cosmetics contribute to causing cancer?

Possibly.: These products may not be regulated by the U.S., so one might not be sure what is in them. They might have chemicals that are carcinogens in them, or they might have chemicals that can contribute to skin cancer.

Are objects placed on skin (spoons, metals, plastic, etc.) that stick to skin (chest and forehead) normal, common, or rare? Is it a skin condition?

Objects and skin: If someone is able to stick objects to skin and is able to keep them suspended there, this would certainly not be considered to be within the realm of the norm. I have heard of such cases but I would think they would be discovered only within the realm of "Ripleys Believe It or Not" or Circuses, and I would imagine the reason for this phenomenon, is unknown. ...Read more

For hyperkeratotic skin diseases, which is more better for sensitive skin - lactic acid lotion (lac-hydrin) or urea-based creams?

Both used: It really depends on the percentages of each medication. Many preparations have both urea and Lactic Acid in them. Your skin is also unique and what might appear to be gentler might give you a worse reaction than the so-called potent preparation. If you are treating keratosis pilaris (kp) then you might seek the help of a dermatologist or even have a preparation compounded. ...Read more

Is preparation h used for skin tightening permanent or temporary?

Is preparation h used for skin tightening permanent or temporary?

Temporary: My understanding is that the ingredient in prep h that draws water from the skin has been removed. But even if i'm wrong, it is still only a temporary solution - your body moves water into any area of subcutaneous tissue that lacks it; so the "tightening" effect will last only until you stop applying prep h. ...Read more

Salicyclic acid can be use in skin tag?

Acids for skin tags: Although some acid peels can remove skin tags, most are ineffective. Salicylic acid is too weak an acid to remove a skin tag.

Can mupirocin calcium cream 2% be substituted for Bacitracin for skin irritations due to disposable undergarments?

Short term use: If you have minor skin irritation it is ok to use topical antimicrobials. However I would not recommend using it indefinitely as it may cause antibiotic resistance. It is important for you to avoid the undergarments that caused the irritation and prevent it from happening chronically. ...Read more
