Avatar n tn Not sure if it is safe during pregnancy, but I highly recommend laser hair removal if you can afford it. It hurts while they're doing it, but the results are wonderful. You can have as much or as little off as you like - anywhere. As for right now, I'd just use a razor the morning of your appt.
Avatar n tn This will be my first surgery, even though they call it a laparotomy, it's still out of my comfort zone! My surgery is next Thursday, and I have a consultation with an anestheologist and my surgeon this Wed. It's been 18 days and no pathology report? How long did they say it would take?
162948 tn?1205256292 I had the mirena in for about 13 months & had it removed end of august to try to get pregnant. I had thought it was more immediate. I found out it can take 3-6 months for your cycle to return. my husband and I are pretty bummed because we would have removed it earlier (or never had it put in). Anyway, I bled a few days after removal (probably due to the removal) & then nothing until a couple days of brown spotting at the beginning of this month.
Avatar f tn A mild corticosteroid cream like dermacort will also help. Also you can go in for laser hair removal which causes permanent reduction of hair and does not cause folliculitis also. Please consult a good cosmetologist/dermatologist for that. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar m tn This obviously isn't the overnight soultion but I had laser hair removal done. It costs a few hundred dollars but it is soooooooo worth it. I'll never have to shave again. No razor burn. No dealing with accidental cuts. It's all gone except a few sporadic hairs (that you can just pull out when they come in.) And DF loves it :) No prickly hairs anywhere.
Avatar f tn Or if you want, try the laser option. I can recommend you to a colleague who does laser therapy for hair removal. But it is up to you really." She does bring up a valid argument....but I did what you did (research on Google) and apparently some women are at risk of hypotension after using Minoxidil, esp. with a dose as high as that. I do not know if this applies to the rest of the female population at large though.

Avatar f tn Hi, I have the same problem and it's awful! Anybody who says it has to do with your razor or shaving lotion, etc has no idea what you're going through. It's the hair growing back & having to push up through the skin so your best bet is to shave as infrequently as possible. Strangely, I only experience this on my legs but it is so incredibly bad. I can't even get by with scratching just using my finger nails.
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 Specifically, find a dr that knows what it is. Don't wear tight clothes, get laser hair removal, stop smoking, lose weight, don't overdose on chocolates. For me it is like having zits in a gross place, but the scars don't go away. For some it is much more debilitating. Knock on wood. I don't know if I spelled it correctly but google will help. It ***** and the more of us the dr's know about, the less they will ignore, incorrectly diagnose, and fail to find cures for!
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 f tn I developed severe folliculitis on both legs which was helped a great deal by laser hair removal, unfortunately I still have stripes of sores on both legs which nothing helps.I admit to being a picker. In addition my hair thinned out significantly as well. I'm under significant stress and this skin affliction is making my woes worse. When I was in my 20's I saw a Boston physician named Dr. Winikoff, who successfully treated my compulsive face picking with hypnotherapy.
Avatar m tn Apparently the astigmatism I had has been corrected (toric lens) but I am now slightly shortsighted (I had hoped for good vision overall). It has been suggested I could have laser surgery to correct this. My main worry is that I have what I feel is quite bad flaring from car headlights at night and also lots of circles around the lights, presume this is haloing. I see you talk about haloing and I am wondering if this has diminished/improved for you as time passes after the surgery.
Avatar f tn That seems to help but I have to use it every day along with warm compresses and a cleansing routine or the blurry vision gets worse. She now wants to perform laser surgery on me for a slight astigmatism I have. She says this will help, they gave me glasses to try on with the way it should look after surgery. I can see clearer but still double vision and she doesn't know if that will go away.
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 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 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 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?
Avatar m tn I spent my laser money on my house this summer so may just put lasers off awhile. Anyway, the topicals seem to be working when I'm dilligent. Got it down to the big four -- Metrogel, Rezamid, Clindamycin and Elidel. Sometimes I just mix them all up and put them on at once -- as one of my derms said was OK.
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 When these organs are removed through the belly button, a biopsy is impossible because the organs have been chopped (well not the best word) up into small pieces for removal. With a vaginal delivery, a biopsy can be proformed because these cervix, uterus and even ovaries can be removed pretty much intack.. I asked the same question, "what happens to my eggs that my ovaries release each month" and I was told they will be released and disinegrate.
Avatar n tn Natural hormones (bio-identical hormones) can really help some women with weight gain and moods, facial hair etc. Fibromyalgia is a pet of mine...I have it. I find SAMe works wonders, it increases circulating serotonin and helps with the pain - double whammy - depression and pain relief. I also adopt a low oxalate diet and that has also improved my pain. After 4 years I am nearly pain free.
Avatar n tn Never let any ‘normal’ soaps, chemicals or solvents touch the hands - wear elastic/rubber gloves when in shower/bath (seal with tape around wrists), when applying things like hair products or after shave, and when doing the washing/cleaning. Wash hands in a dermatological chemical free handwash, and/or use special non-soap soaps.
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.
Avatar n tn Except for maybe one thing that I found in almost all body, face and hand creams, and makeup and even hair conditioner that maybe our problem. It is called methylparaben, and it is and additive that is prevalent in most of our external products we all use daily. It has been banned in Europe and Canada but not in our own beloved USA! Shockig to say the least. I went to a web site called www.cosmeticsdatabase.com and typed in my favorite hand cream.
Avatar n tn I THOUGHT NOTHING OF IT BECAUSE I SHAVE DOWN THERE AND THOUGHT THEY MIGHT JUST BE HAIR OR RAZOR BUMPS. BY THE NEXT DAY THE BUMPS WERE MORE PAINFUL. IT WAS BEGINNING TO BECOME UNCOMFORTABLE TO SIT, STAND, OR EVEN WALK. I THEN GREW CONCERNED. BY THE NEXT DAY THEY HAD OPENED UP AND WERE OPEN BLISTERED AREAS. NOW THEY LOOK REALLY BAD AND IT SEEMS TO BE SPREADING. THE LESIONS HAVE A WHITE ***** LOOKING FILM OVER THEM. THEY 10 TIMES MORE PAINFUL.
298579 tn?1192250448 Yet another woman here, relieved to find she's not alone. I've had the same symptoms since age 33, and I'm 53 now. Mine started when I had a botched laser cone biopsy of my cervix which left my cervix a mass of scar tissue. I always assumed that my pain had something to do with my screwed up cervix. My symptoms were so weird that I never mentioned them to my doctor. I've done a bunch of Google searches but never got the right one to get any information.
