His stools from mineral oil and probiotics now are very runny and painful and this evening smelled of ammonia. Horrible diaper rash as well.

Runny stool: Treatment of constipation with mineral oil can result in runny stools. It is unlikely that probiotics are contributing to runny stool. Ammonia smell in stool likely due to urine mixed with stool. Diaper rash is due to contact with runny stool. Diaper rash will resolve with use of diaper cream containing zinc oxide. ...Read more

How can you stop pumpkin (carotene) turning skin orange, aside from not eating it eg adding fat to it, taking laxatives, mineral oil etc?

How can you stop pumpkin (carotene) turning skin orange, aside from not eating it eg adding fat to it, taking laxatives, mineral oil etc?

You don't: The vitamin A in the food selectively attaches to fat cells beneath the skin. The more you consume, the more will attach. The orange tinge is what the eye sees from the light bouncing off the vitamin A molecule as it hits your skin. ...Read more

If 100grm of squash has 100% RDI of carotene, how much roughly could be eaten daily without skin yellowing? Would mineral oil stop absorption much?

If 100grm of squash has 100% RDI of carotene, how much roughly could be eaten daily without skin yellowing? Would mineral oil stop absorption much?

All you want.: 1st, there is no official RDI for carotene; everybody has a different number. 2nd, I've never seen carotenosis from squash (and my daughter, a vegetarian, eats a TON of it). 3rd, carotenosis due to eating vegetables is harmless, so if you somehow eat enough squash to yellow your skin, cutting back will reverse it. So eat what you want. Mineral oil would have no significant effect on absorption. ...Read more

Can the ingredient Paraffinum liquidum aka mineral oil in a hair stying product cause hair to thin or come out on the hairline or whole head? Thanks

Can the ingredient Paraffinum liquidum aka mineral oil in a hair stying product cause hair to thin or come out on the hairline or whole head? Thanks

I don't think good: Mineral oil is prob diff to get out, will block your pores and get stuck in hair follicles. Need a gentle cleaning agent not a lubricant. In upstate NY I had a patient who had arthritis in his knees and used WD40 on them. Prob not good to breathe that stuff. Hair needs to be cleaned without drying out. Scalp should be cleaned. Min Oil not the answer. ...Read more

My 17month old child was exposed to lamp oil on his skin. He has broken out in a rash. I gave him a bath. What else should I do? What if he ate some?
