Normal nutrition: Young people rarely have vitamin deficiencies. Start with adequate sleep (allows time for your body to repair itself), a broad diet (protein, fruits, vegetables, and grains), and a lot of water. If still concerned, try a simple multi-vitamin. You can choose more expensive "programs, " but you probably can't do better than what nature offers. ...Read more
Get seen: Acne is a grave personal and professional liability. If yours is severe, you won't be able to manage it on your own in spite of what anyone else may tell you. Start using topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid now and get with your personal physician who'll add something prescription-strength. If you are a candidate for isotretinoin, give it serious consideration. ...Read more

How can I prevent a suntan from peeling? I like how it looks and don't want it to go away. What measures can I take besides for moisturizing?
Can't stop nature: If one's skin got fried by the sun, new skin cells will form to replace the sunburned skin all at one time (because greater skin damage was done all at one time). If one's skin was not fried but just gradually tanned, new skin cells will replace the tanned skin at the normal rate that skin cells replace themselves. Otherwise, if one were to keep old skin, she would look 100 years-old very rapidly. ...Read more

Wash off chlorine: Showering and washing your body and hair with soap and warm water is a skin care "must" after swimming. When you get out of a swimming pool, chlorine bonds to your skin, according to British Swimming. Removing the potent chemical can prevent you from breaking out in a rash in response to the irritant.

Hello...Today i lost my virginity..Is it necessary for me to take antibiotic for ths week, to prevent infection or not?Thank you
Know your partner: If you know your partner and his/her sexual history, then you know the answer to your question. Losing virginity in and of itself is perfectly normal and no reason to need antibiotics. If your partner has std's though, you could develop one if no condom was used. Unless you are in a long-term monogamous relationship where you are sure your partner and their past ones are infection free, use condom. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
