I am a man i want to have breast what kind of medication would I have to take and what is the prosess i would have to go through i don't want surgery

You : You will need to schedule a visit with an endocrinologist (hormone specialist). There are ways to increase breast tissue with hormones. I must warn you that the endocrinologist may recommend that you be cleared by a psychiatrist prior to initiating a medical plan. The main reason for this is to ascertain your emotional/psychological well being because this type of change is dramatic and life altering. The specialist will want to make sure this is something you can handle, and assure that you have made a well informed decision. Best of luck. ...Read more

What to do if I have back acne and I am afraid to take of my shirt?

What to do if I have back acne and I am afraid to take of my shirt?

I'm sorry: All acne can be managed and yours should have been. There's still time. You can't do it on your own, and home remedies and topical benzoyl peroxide probably won't touch it. Your physician can probably clear you in about two weeks with a systemic antibiotic that's right for you, perhaps tetracycline 500 2x/day. If this fails and you're offered isotretinoin, accept it. ...Read more
