Common Questions and Answers about Skin treatment at home


Avatar n tn Hi, I have dark skin and would like to do an at-home chemical peel. I have never done this before but have excessive acne scarring and dark circles. Can you tell me what product(s) I need to purchase and what %, etc. I need? I think it it a TCA peel but I'm not sure. Thanks!!
1305725 tn?1277502513 My warts have completely fallen off! I am so happy I found this home remedy treatment and would recommend it to anybody with any type of wart(s). My advice is this: Soak a piece of cotton in ACV and use med tape to attach it to your skin (make sure the tape doesn't stick to any hairs or you'll end up giving yourself a waxing when you wake up.. OUCH!!) As much as it may sting to have it there, keep the ACV cotton on all night while you're sleeping.
Avatar m tn How reliable is oraquick at home oral HIV test? I have looked online and everything I have found is by manufacturer. I want to test myself and know my status and move on from there. The fear of not knowing sucks. Worrying won't change results. Can I use this test and know that the results it gives it is valid.
393685 tn?1425816122 We are currently working on a whole new diagnostic machine here in Australia that will do everything for you at home and will work with your home computer. It is the same size as a dvd disc drive and will only cost about $200 Aussi. As you know most desease's have testing kits already out at chemist for things like diabeties etc so it is not a big step.
Avatar f tn I also can't say how long it has been there. He froze the bump in question and the top layer of skin pealed off over the next week or so, but the bump didn't change or go away. I returned this morning to the dermatologist and he said he could freeze it again, but could also scrap it. He used a small device with a tiny loop to scrap at the bump. The scraping didn't feel good, and he was digging trying to get it, but it seemed like it wasn't coming off.
4043517 tn?1374010173 At 8pm 2/16/14 I started my quest to kill this insidious virus that has been running free since 1974-75 busily turning my health blood infused liver into a solid chunk of overdried pemmican where blood flow is suppressed and fibrous bridges and walls impede the journey of cleansing toxins from my body.
Avatar f tn My doctor says from 1-22. I am at a 6. Very mild liver damage, so I really don't need to rush treatment. I will see him again in 6 months for testing. He says that at that time they may have some better treatment that are not as bruptly as the ones now. Also, the may not be as pricey. I feel blessed.
Avatar n tn I was at a lake for about 7 days and when i came home these white spots on my shoulders showed up! they might just be sun spots but i dont know. What should I do??!!
Avatar f tn Hello, Unfortunately I am unaware of any effective home treatment for the burn scar. One medicine which has been advised by many dermatologists for scar diminishing is contractubex gel/cream. You can seek your dermatologist/surgeon’s opinion before using this cream. Otherwise you can go in for glycolic peals, laser treatments and pressure dressings. Severe scarrings may need skin grafting by a plastic surgeon. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn The treatment for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment. If it still persists then you can go in for laser treatment, Chemical peeling or microdermabrasion. 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.
Avatar f tn At night, repair them with creams formulated from glycolic acid—a must for improving skin texture and tone. For a more intensive nighttime treatment, apply cream and then cover hands with gloves or socks. If the symptoms worsen or persist then please consult a dermatologist.

926271 tn?1258463443 - He's going to 1st grade so I cover it with a very thing sterile gauze (kind of open not flat to the skin) Still by the time he comes back home the burn looks worst. 4.-When we shower him I let water run over it and pad it dry (don't put anything on it until he goes back to sleep to let it breath and it looks better then for a while... QUESTIONS: Was that diagnosis accurate? Was this the only and most effective treatment for a 6 y.o.? Am I doing the right thing (abpve)?
Avatar n tn erythrasma, psoriasis inverse, dryness, and prescribed various treatments that didn't solve the itch : elidel, divonex, cortisone based, antiallergic, antifungal etc... The rash looks like a red stripe along the sides of the scrotom, but it's not scabias. The itch is mainly on the right side. It's quiet in the morning when i wake up and worsens towards the evening, mainly after long sitting down or activity.
Avatar m tn Don't leave us though your wisdom has been enormously helpful to we the confussed. Dale 1A, 54YO, mild fibrosis, VL 1.5m and on 2/14 at six weeks of treatment it was 827. At 17 or 48. Pluggin away!
Avatar m tn Single (no one at home other than kids.) work from home. NO INSURANCE. Here's my detox As of right this second, I'm around 36 hours sober. I was on 10mgs wafter of methadone (NOTHING ELSE) I have no xanax etc here and personally I won't take it. Going through this withdrawal I will only have my inner strength, imodium, Tylenol PM and vitamins. I've taken my vitamins, cut out red meat but ate well (I do anyway these days).
Avatar m tn About a year ago I started itching a patch of skin around my ankle. At first I thought it was excema and then after a co uple of months that itchy spot became an open sore. I tried everything to get it to heal with hydrogen peroxide, ointment and even wrapping it but my skin became so itchy. Eventually I went to a doctors care to seek medical treatment. They did a culture, put me on antibiotics and sent me on my way. Well that did nothing so I got in to see a dermatologist.
Avatar n tn Do you know of any other at-home or OTC remedies? I understand it's not contageous but could you explain how I might've "inspired" tinea versicolor to appear? -- Side note: I also have the chicken-skin disease (Keratosis pilaris) on my arms (also very mild) is there an at-home or OTC remedy for that you can suggest? Any information is appreciated!!
Avatar m tn The other eye is fine, but this drooping of the skin enlarges my pupil and makes me look like I've been punched in the face on that side. Is there anything I can do at home to try and revive that skin lift, or will I need to go see a physician? If so, what kind of specialist would you recommend? Thanks!
Avatar f tn The acv treatment really does work great, it's gotten rid of any wart I've had.
Avatar n tn I have been living (existing) with Hepatitis C for years now, 49-year old female, had to quit job, totally exhausted, was married to an ex-drug user. My recent blood work showed that my levels (ALT levels I think) were at 7 MILLION. My doctor referred me to a gastroenterologist who only told me I needed to decide to treat or not to treat. What will happen if I choose to NOT take treatment?
746512 tn?1388811180 He has some sort of unknown allergies but is on a low grade food (beneful) and horrible smelling skin. He is beet red in his ears, armpits and abdomen. The skin is also hyperpigmented in spots, flaky and has similar texture to elephant skin (wrinkled and swollen). He also has a sweet horrible odour (especially earss) so I'm assuming a yeast infection.
197575 tn?1215536224 It went up to 8.7 when I left the hospital. I am happy to be home. Everyone was wonderful at the hospital, but there is no place like home. I missed my daughter and dogs :) Thanks to everyone for your support and help. I will continue to stay on the boards since I am officially a member now:)) Thanks for the prayers and thoughts!
Avatar f tn I'm using coconut oil because I ran out of bio-oil! I love it.
5265722 tn?1402527432 My skin does get dry often and peels but mine, and yours too, is probably just dead skin. After all it's gone through, the skin dies, we get new skin often anyway right? I think you should still use the gauze if its open and oozing. With wounds, of any kind, I always hear that it's good to keep it clean and dry.
Avatar n tn As it is I am not comfortable in my skin. If anyone has suggestions or would like to chat, please email me at butterfly_baybee2005***@**** I will respond to everyone! Also, will you only conceive on certain days of the month?
Avatar n tn Hello, Pls don’t use such kind of crude methods at your own as you will be inviting infections.The treatment methods include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation. In my opinion you should talk to a cosmetologist/dermatologist about this and get these tags evaluated. I hope that helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
Avatar m tn Home Remedies for the Treatment of Hemorrhoids: 1) Warm water relaxes the sphincter muscle, which can help soothe the pain associated with hemorrhoid protrusions. Fill your bath with three to four inches of warm water. Don't add anything to the water. Sit in the tub for 15 minutes. Repeat this several times a day. When hemorrhoids are sore, sitz baths are the best and easiest way to get quick relief.
Avatar n tn I am wondering if I will be able to handle this myself at home or am going to end up in the hospital. It has been exactly 29 hours since I took my last Ultram pill!!! I am counting the seconds! It all started with me being given that prescription five years ago for back pain when it was said to not be addictive. It has controlled my LIFE!! I have lived on it every single day for 5 years. I know that for the past 3 years I have been taking it because it makes me mentally feel good...
Avatar n tn Hello, Freckles cannot be removed at home. Cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen and laser are the main treatment modalities. Although there are many skin creams like hydroquinone and salicylic acid, but their use needs prescription .I would recommend a dermatologist’s consultation for this. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
