Can i put on lotion after putting on clindamycin phosphate and benzoyl peroxide gel? Prescripted from the doctors. Because it dries out my skin.
Seems risky - ask dr: Better safe than sorry - since it is not known whether methyl salicylate gel will harm an unborn baby, tell your doctor if you are pregnant while using this medication. Also, it is not known whether methyl salicylate gel passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Do not apply methyl salicylate gel to your breast area if you are breast-feeding a baby. ...Read more

I just used regular coconut scented lotion on a rash. Can i also use aloe vera lotion on top of that to help heal it?
Aloe Vera: Yes, you can use both products together. Most people use aloe gel topically, as a remedy for skin conditions including burns, sunburn, frostbite, psoriasis, and cold sores.

Will putting hemp oil on my face letting it soak in for 30 minutes then put Retin a (tretinoin) on minimise redness and flaking?
Possibly: Products like Retin-A exfoliate the skin, and WILL cause some dryness and flaking in some people. If this is too bothersome, try applying every other night. A moisturizer can help with the flaking, but use caution. Some people have had acne breakouts using hemp oil in their face, so if your acne worsens, stop the oil. You can also ask your Dr what moisturizer he/she recommends! ...Read more

Can a woman use bleach on her face and hair removal cream on her arms during ist trimester of pregnancy?
Okay But Why: It is most likely safe to do both of those but there could be some absorbtion of the cream and depending on the ingredients could possibly have some detrimental effect on the baby. Let's put it this way- if something were to happen to the baby, even if it had nothing to do with the cream, you will probably always beat yourself up for it, thinking you were to blame. Why take the risk? ...Read more
