Can i expect my oily face to come back to normal post adolescence? (my parents do not have adult acne)

Get treated: There's no way to tell. Ultimately, acne remits as you get older. I was able to stop taking maintenance tetracycline around age 50. "oily skin" correlates only moderately with whether you have acne. If your current topical treatment for acne isn't working, get with a physician who's able to treat you effectively. Good luck. ...Read more

Hygiene first: Try an over the counter face wash with benzoyl peroxide . It should be at least 5. % strong. If it doesn't dry your face out too much use it twice a day. You will need a good moisturizer but look for the words non- comedogenic or else it would cause more pimples . You may need to add a retinol if that alone does not work. Good luck! ...Read more

If I do have pcos what will happen to treat it ?Will i become infertile?If they give me medicine will my excessive hair leave?

If I do have pcos what will happen to treat it ?Will i become infertile?If they give me medicine will my excessive hair leave?

A few ideas : Pcos is best treated with exercise (weight loss if necessary to get to bmi of 25 or less), low carb diet, possibly metformin. Sometimes women with pcos have increased risk for infertility, but if they follow their doctors instructions and are at a healthy weight that will greatly increase their chances. Excess hair does often times diminish as well when pcos properly treated. ...Read more

My teeth have gotten bad since pregnancy. I want to get them fixed, but I am scared. How can I get past the fear? It has become painful to brush.

My teeth have gotten bad since pregnancy. I want to get them fixed, but I am scared. How can I get past the fear? It has become painful to brush.

Pregnancy Gums: Pregnancy is an immune-suppressed state and it's often easier to get inflamed gums (periodontitis). You need to get over your fear and it is safe to go to the dentist in pregnancy. In fact, poor dental hygiene has been linked to preterm labor! if you won't do it for yourself, do it for your baby. You're too young to be missing your teeth if you let this go. Your dentist can give numbing meds. ...Read more

How to get rid of my acne for years and nothing helps. I want birth control but my mom says no because she believes you can get convince her?

How old are you?: In most jurisdictions, your mother has no legal say over whether you can go on the oral contraceptive pill. It often clears acne, and when it's the right preparation for the right woman, it offers many other health advantages -- it's even recommended for celibate women to maintain long-term health. Others options are antibiotics & topicals,spironolactone, or isotretinoin. All are worth the risks. ...Read more

How can I tell my mom that I want to get all tattoos like boys my age.?

Respect your body: Many young people will later regret the mutilation that they do their bodies. Many conspicuous tatoos will make getting a job difficult later. Tattoos done without proper technique can lead to serious lifelong illness. Trust your moms wisdom to disapprove of your efforts to fit in. Wear your hat crooked, hair long, braids, whatever you need to rebel, but you may regret anything permanent. ...Read more

Microdermabrasion : Microdermabrasion does not work very well for active acne. It is much better for acne scars. Therefore you may try another treatment to help clear the acne up (i.e. An antibiotic like Doxycycline or a medication called accutane).
