How long will having blue light therapy take? Had little success with topical forms of acne treatment, so i'm interested in trying blue light therapy.
Everything takes tim: I have seen light therapy be very helpful. Blue light traditionally has reported to be helpfull but perhaps red is showing better results...I personally like yellow...Getting the benefits of blue and red spectrum. But any light treatment has to be rather high intensity....Most of the consumer products are not anywhere near powerful enough. Even more benefits from intense pulsed light (ipl). ...Read more
Blue light therapy and acne? I've heard of blue light therapy for acne, and am wondering if that is the same kind of blue light used to treat depression? I'm 33, and still have problems with acne, and am considering using a blue light, but worry about any
I have thick white discharge with vag atrophy and can't take hormones. Will a moisturizer help with this? If not other suggestions?
Atrophic vaginitis?: There are many causes of vaginal discharge, including atrophic vaginitis associated with low estrogen levels. Discuss with your doctor; it should be easy to diagnose. Vaginal estrogens usually help a lot, and don't cause the problems that prevent oral hormone treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Breast hurt, took 2 Plan B pills this month and period is light and brown with some pink are these effects of after pill or can it be something else?
Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking Plan B is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using Plan B and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control. ...Read more
Took an abortion pill at 2/3 weeks pregnant, very tiny amount of blood with sticky yellow-like mucus. Successful abortion or not?

Can you whiten teeth that have a naturally yellow tint? My teeth have always been a light yellow color, and i'm not a smoker or coffee drinker. I've been told that the color of your dentin can affect what shade of white or yellow our teeth appear to be. W
Yes: A yellow color to your teeth is unfortunately the natural color of your teeth and responds the best to professional teeth withering. Unless your dentin is stained from either Fluoride or antibiotics when the teeth were first developing around 2-4 yo, you should have great results. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Yes: Why is not certain but it occurs quite frequently, even if the doctor doesn't take the blood pressure, just being in the doctor's office seems to be enough to cause blood pressure to be up. In most cases the elevation is small but can be significant.

Sucker bait: Colored light therapy is decades old. There's just enough scientific jargon that the practitioner can use to make people believe that this fun-therapy might work. It's an amusing placebo. If you can take and want the oral contraceptive pill, it's likely to clear you; otherwise, start with topical benzoyl peroxide with Clindamycin or something similar your doctor can rx. You deserve to be acne-free. ...Read more
Question about medication I have been taking 10 mg of terazosin and it is a solid robin's egg blue. The pharmacy gave me a green and white capsule that is green and white with i4339 on the green side and 10 mg. On the white side. It makes me feel very
Honestly : Honestly the only way to know if there was a mistake is to call or present to the pharmacy that gave you the medication. Please know that the medication could very well be the same, different pharmaceutical companies may manufacture the same drug , however there may be changes in color and size, especially if it is the generic form. Also if it is generic, there may be different preservatives or additives used which could be causing you to feel "strange" you can request to have the original pill given to you due to adverse side effects.

I have a pill stuck in my throat, when I move my head/neck around it hurts; when I speak it hurts; when I drink or eat something it hurts?
Need to examine:
How do you know that the pill is stuck there. If you can eat and drink, it is not stuck there and there may be a different explanation for your symptoms. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Why is it every time I swallow a pill, it felt like the pill is still stuck in my throat? I can still breath and speak but it worries me.
It also depends on: the size of the pill. If you take several large pills together you can have this sensation even if you have a normal esophagus though a stricture (narrowing) could do this as well especially if you have underlying GERD (reflux) which can predispose you to this. If food sticks in your throat/chest you definitely need further evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
