Avatar n tn I believe it must have happened when they first shaved my face (standard procedure for laser hair removal)- yet the shaving opened all the little acne bumps and must have allowed it to spread. Someone mentioned diabetes and menstral cycle problems. I have very irregular periods and have been diagnosed with " PCOS " (a pre-diabetic stage). I know my facial hair is rooted to this problem, yet I do not know how to fix it.
Avatar n tn The surface of moles varies from smooth to pebbly and may contain heavy dark hairs or no hair growth.

Genes can have an influence on a person's moles.UV radiation from the sun causes premature aging of the skin and skin damage that can lead to melanoma. Some scientists hypothesize that overexposure to UV, including excessive sunlight, may play a role in the formation of acquired moles.
Avatar m tn There are OTC agents available for wart removal which require weeks before any improvement can be observed. Common mole hair removal procedures include plucking, cosmetic waxing, electrolysis, threading and cauterization. Many "home remedies" also claim to remove moles from the skin. One such method involves apple cider vinegar concentrated directly on the mole burning it off the skin. Another method uses crushed garlic to burn the mole.

Avatar n tn I get it all time and really have to exfoliate a lot, there are red dots that usually itch and are inflammed. I think laser hair removal is the only option to reduce the hair, but that is expensive and I doubt there are many studies that allow you to get it for free. I still am learning about this and am I trying to find anyone that has a similar condition to mine, but no luck and from all the observing and locker rooms I have been and travels. I have never found anyone with the same thing.
Avatar n tn Instead, the hair grows inside the follicle, often encapsulated, and can be removed, much like an ingrown hair, though removal can lead to scarring. There is currently no known cure for keratosis pilaris; however, there are effective treatments available which make its symptoms less apparent. The condition often improves with age and can even disappear completely in adulthood.

Avatar n tn - Laser hair removal (long pulse yag laser works good) - there was a clinical experiment being done but do not kown what was the outcome clinical trial but laser has helped me ALOT. I have my doctor perscribe this treatment for me, although my insurance does not cover it but I have had Flex Account cover it. - As mentioned by other people change sweaty clothes, keep dry and wear only cotton.

Avatar f tn they did a biopsy shortly after i did this post, and nothing specific came back. i've had it treated w/ medication (pills and topical) and also laser and it'll seem to look a little better for a few days but then i'm almost to square 1. it just will not seem to heal. just today they decided to do a second biopsy, because they also find it odd and worrisome. they did diagnose me with rosacea b/c in general i am very pink with capillaries close to the skin.
Avatar n tn Don't get laser prostate surgery no matter what. You will never ejaculate normally again. I hate it and would rather get up 50 times a night than have this. It's not worth it.
Avatar n tn It's an at home laser hair removal machine. It costs like $600 but I bought it since it would be cheaper than laser hair removal at the doctor. I hate to sound like an ad, but it seems to be working very well. About a little less than half of the hair is gone from my arms and armpits but I don't use it that much on my legs because of the itching after shaving. About a fourth of my leg hair is gone right now.
Avatar n tn The same hormones are responsible for giving pubic and underarm hair their extra pigment, it's also why they are curly even if your other hair is not. Honestly, I don't think you should resort to bleach or whatever those creams are, the active ingredient causes cancer. It's not worth it, guys don't care/notice anyway. If they are naked with you and are busy staring at some slightly darker skin, they have bigger problems! Find a guy who isn't a waste of time, at least that's free.
Avatar m tn i also found useful removing any light around the mirror so i can't see the pores. 2 - for my legs, i did the laser for permanent hair reduction. i am still doing the treatment so i still have some hair. however, because the treatment costs a few thousand dollars and if i pull my hair again it will make my hair growth back, i don't pull my legs' hair anymore. however, now i became obsessed with my split ends: i cut them with a scissor and i can't stop for hours. today i hide the scissor...
Avatar n tn I decided it must have something to do with shaving and so, at the age of 50, I have started to have laser hair removal on my lower legs. Low and behold, it seems to be working. I rarely have the itching anymore. And usually, it is just before my next session. And the shaving that used to make the itching worse, doesn't anymore! It is expensive but totally worth it if it makes that doggone itching stop.
Avatar n tn Very interesting that you bring that up as I am a cutter and am also obsessed with skin picking (any bump on my face, chest or arms must be picked at) and hair tweezing (I spend *hours* tweezing out each individual leg hair). Good luck kicking the oxy habit! From what I remember when a guy I knew went through detox from oxy, swimming helped a little with the tightness in his skin/aches/etc.
Avatar n tn Hi, you have a sabatious cyst....I've had about 3 at different times. As you have done ...sit in a hot bath...usually it will pop itself... however..if it happens again...go to the doctor and get it drained...cuz if it pops itself...sometimes it doesnt drain properly...!! and will reoccur!! Usually the stuff that comes out is reddish blood and puss...and can sometimes smell really bad... Its usually a day op only...and your able to go home in the afternoon...
Avatar f tn I found a book online called The Atlas of Craniomaxillofacial Osteosynthesis Its a medical book for sale and you can only see a couple pages, but from the index there was a whole chapter on plate removal due to immunologic response. Also.... Allergic reactions to metal implants: Influence of wear debris Properties of implant materials and particles.
Avatar n tn I wonder if laser hair removal is an option. At this point, I'd go for that if it would stop these painful lumps.
Avatar n tn a cotton ball/q-tip and alcohol? what about a pimple, ingrown hair in there? can that happen? i would imagine it hurts since its such a sensitive area. make another appointment.
Avatar n tn My lower abdomen still has swelling - definately much softer, though. It was so tight that my hair folicles could be seen - they looked like big pores. Sorry, for being so descriptive, but figure somebody might want for comparison. The brusing is just light yellow, now. No pain except when I push on it. It had hurt so bad, even when I sneezed or coughed. All that is gone - last at least 48 hours this time. How many shots did you receive in each area? We're you nauseated at all?
472570 tn?1274689487 In an effort to get some sleep, I zipped my matress in vinyl mattress cover and placed petroleum jell all around it to stop them from crawling up onto the bed with me, well in doing so, I found two little dots on the bed, a little bigger than the specks I had been catching and put these in a zip lock bag with alcohol and when I placed it under the miscroscope I noticed the same kind of insect, this time it was like a rolled up bunch of hair, only it was not hair and it was the same insect co
Avatar n tn In order to cut down on the smell and keep things clean, I've removed my public hair with laser hair removal. My husband is a doctor and while I have never specifically asked him about this problem (I'm just too embarrassed and this is not his specialty), I am convinced it's bacterial and has to do with the change in PH inside the vagina, which is why the yogurt seems to help.
Avatar n tn I have been told that I need my tonsils out to solve these problems, but its very risky surgery nowadays, there is a higher chance of bleeding in adults. They can laser them but they told me I would be out of work about 3 months and I cant afford that. I also have AIRPLANE EAR really bad. That was a new occurence for me as well. When they plane starts to descend, I get sharp piercing pains in my ears.
