What will tea tree oil do for your skin infections?

Poor data.: Tea tree oil has reported antimicrobial properties; it is used to treat plants of infections regularly. Human use has less good data, but the initial small, uncontrolled studies suggest it may have some role in wound healing.

Hi docs, do you think it's alright not to dilute tea tree oil for acne?

Hi docs, do you think it's alright not to dilute tea tree oil for acne?

It's your call: And not your best choice. It's an estrogen, and if you're a man, you're at risk for getting breast development. Use it as an adjunct. Your best friend is either a salicylic acid wash or topical benzoyl peroxide. They are less pleasant but more likely to work. If you're not clear in two weeks, get with your physician. Best wishes. ...Read more

Does olive oil go bad? Is it okay to use expired olive oil for skin or hair? Thank you!

 Does olive oil go bad? Is it okay to use expired olive oil for skin or hair? Thank you!

All biologically: derived cooking oils (particularly "healthy" polyunsaturated or monounsaturated oils) have the potential to "go bad." This process is called rancidity. Because rancid oils have an unpleasant odor (and taste), I don't recommend their use for cooking or cosmetic purposes. By contrast, most "baby oils" are a combination of mineral oil & fragrance & don't go bad. Hope this is helpful info! ...Read more

I would treat both the nails and the athletes foot infection at the same time and get it done as quickly as possible. Good luck. ...Read more
