I read that apple cidder vinegar and/or tanning would help. I am so lost and confused. I was diagnosed with 2 differ things by 2 differ drs here and not sure where to go to next since this is a new environment for me I am scared to go to anymore drs in this area.
1025521 tn?1252507728 I waited a year for the scar to propperly heal and started tanning to get just a little coler and make the scar less noticeable. But I definately dont want the tanning to be a peranent thing. I'm very pale and just needed a little coler, I've seem some girls get rediculously dark from tanning beds and it looks disgusting! Yuck!
Avatar f tn t diagnosed til after the birth of my second daughter ( started tanning and it exploded oops...) so knowing it may come back it would be nice to be prepared my spots just got back to normal at least they aren't as noticeable. Not to be vain or dramatic but being preggo is hard enough without looking like a dalmation or being super itvhy. Are selsun blue treatments still safe with cooking a baby that is the best prevention I can think of?
Avatar n tn Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. Most cases of fungal infections respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole. You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients. Some of them are Lamisil, Monistat derm, Mycelex, and Nizoral. If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
Avatar f tn Would it be a good idea to go tanning at a tanning salon? And regardless what tanning lotion is best to use while pregnant?
Avatar f tn I GOT THESE TINY WHITE SPOTS ON MY BACK AND STOMACH FOR OVER A YEAR. I HAD LOOK UP ON THE NET, HOPE TO FIND SOME INFORMATION ABOUT IT AND ALL THEY SAY THAT IT'S FROM THE SUN, FROM TANNING AND BLAH BLAH. HOWEVER, I AM SURE THAT THEY'RE NOT FROM THE SUN BECAUSE I DIDN'T GO TO THE BEACH MORE THAN ONCE IN THE SUMMER, AND I NEVER TAN. I WENT TO MY DOCTOR AND HE GAVE ME SOME KIND OF MEDICINE THAT WAS LIKE LOTION. HE TOLD ME TO APPLY IT ON MY BACK AND TUMMY 30MIN.
1394979 tn?1280272043 Factors that can cause the fungus to become more visible include high humidity and immune or hormone abnormalities.Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist and get it evaluated.
Avatar f tn I am a 23 year old, and was diagnosed over a month ago with persistent (gestational) trophoblastic disease, but have not yet received chemotherapy treatment. I've used tanning beds on and off since my teenage years (never more than once a week as of the past couple years). My question is- will it affect my type of cancer if I were to go tanning in a salon? I understand I should avoid any type of UV rays once I start chemo... but as of right now, is it okay to do so?
Avatar f tn I use to tan a lot in the sun and use tanning bed; however I do not anymore. I have acquired what I believe is sun spots from too much exposure and those areas are now white. Is there a product on the market that can be purchased so that the white spots will even out with the rest of my skin? I also have a lot of age spots (brown spots) on my legs and arms; which I believe is also from the sun and tanning beds. Is there also a product for this available on the market?
2155769 tn?1336660738 Hi, I used to have acne but cleared it up with a course of roaccutane, before roaccutane the best treatment i found was an antibiotic solution called zineret it comes in a small bottle with a pad on the end and u apply after washing ur face and open up the pores, it kind of burns, but is worth alittle pain for the benefits it has, here in the uk u have to have a prescription to get it, I also found using a tanning bed was beneficial. thanks.
1352717 tn?1276971442 d put my money toward a massage instead of tanning. Not as dangerous, and so much better at soothing aches and pains and spastic muscles. Just my $0.
Avatar n tn We have had a very big campaign in Australia to try to ban indoor tanning. A girl died from a melanoma caused by indoor tanning. Many of the salons have closed do to not knowing the ramifications of it. If you go to a salon make sure they know the rules and regulations on how long etc you should be doing it. Quite honestly it is a dangerous thing as the UV rays are up to 100% stronger than the outdoor sun. So do take care!!! This is regardless of any thyroid or other problem!
330481 tn?1309488243 I hate tanning beds because I hate laying in there for 20 minutes...and driving there and all that....yuck. Plus this will make you look younger longer. I honestly don't think it would mess with your temp. I guess it could but I would think your internal temp would be the same. Now if you had sun poisening and you were running a fever it is adifferent story. But I don't think that is the case here! Good luck! Let me know how you are doing!
Avatar f tn I'm going to be 33weeks tomorrow I'm having a little girl My babyshower is in a week and im so ready but not ready to have my baby ... I'm ready in the since that my back is killing me and I'm always tired and I want my body back lol ...

Avatar f tn The next day or the day after, I went to the gym and after my workout used the stand up tanning bed. I noticed in the bed these spots under the UV lighting, what looked like a red rash and thought it had something to do with the heat from laser + tanning. Unfortunately, these spots are now visible around my bikini area and lower navel area (also treated with laser hair removal). They are a tan color and when I shower, they get darker.
318269 tn?1241350235 Hi, I'm 9 dpo and I've been tanning a couple times a week will or can this effect my conceiving?
Avatar f tn my OB said tanning while breastfeeding is fine....
Avatar f tn Because it's still early, there's not too much to worry about. And the flying is perfectly fine. It won't do any harm to the baby. They just don't want people in late second or third trimester to fly in-case they go into labor. Since you know that you're pregnant now, you can start to cut out those things.
527940 tn?1212666659 I am 42 will turn 43 in August. I am trying to get pregnant. Just started trying. I have been tanning for several years and I am curious to find out if I am jeporadizing my chances of getting pregnant by going to the tanning bed.
Avatar n tn When I first started tanning, I started to notice a darker coloration in pigment below my eyes, on my check, lips, and nose, and I thought that I was getting freckles from tanning, but I asked the owner of the salon and he assured me to use Selsun Blue, because he said the darker smaller spots are a fungus that come about from the ulttraviolet rays from the tanning salon or extreme exposure to sun.
