Saw Palmetto For Girls?

23 April 2013 - 12:31 AM

Hi, 

I want to try saw palmetto since birth control worked for me in the past, and this is supposed to work similarly. When I went to purchase them in Walgreens the bottles actually said they were not intended for women. I was wondering what brands are alright for women to consume? Thank you!


Nizoral On Face?

23 January 2013 - 01:46 PM

Hi, I've been using the Nizoral anti-dandruff shampoo on my face and back for about a week now for my Pityrosporum Folliculitis and it has cleared significantly. I was wondering what I should use on my "off - days"? Also, how many days a week should I use Nizoral on my face/back to ensure clear skin? Help is appreciated. :D


(Pic) Help! What Is This? Rash?

25 December 2012 - 01:12 PM

So I've had these little tiny bumps everywhere for over a year now. It all started when I got off of the BC pill, and my face has not recovered. They are all pus filled. My brother (who is in medical but not dermatology) said it looked like a rash. Does it look like some kind of allergic reaction? I use Cetaphil face wash in the morning and neutrogena face wash with salicylic acid at night and spot treat my numerous tiny pimples with proactiv's sulfur mask. In the morning if my skin is dry, I usually put on some Cetaphil lotion that is designed for oily skin. I also take zinc (100mg), omega -3, vit C, Cod liver oil (for A & D) every night.

Also, I'm a vegetarian and can not cut out diary from my diet or I'll have health issues. Soy is also a staple in my diet along with breads and potatoes.

I'm not sure what the problem is, but don't have enough money right now to go to the doc. What do you think it is? Attached File  IMG_0465.JPG   64.55K   3 downloadsAttached File  IMG_0466.JPG   78.25K   3 downloadsAttached File  IMG_0469.JPG   74.2K   3 downloads

Advice?!

Hey, I'm 19 years old and was on the birth control pill when I was 15 and stopped taking it a bit after I turned 18. After I stopped, it has been a downward spiral with my face. I get these tiny little pimples that don't come to a head (perhaps its milia?) around my chin and above my lips that never go away. I also break out horribly around my period, getting cysts and large under the skin pimples. I've been off the pill for a year now, and am considering going back on it due to the stress my new acne has gave me. Anyone else have this problem? I'm really not sure what to do about it, and have tried numerous methods and have changed my diet. I also take vitamin C, Zinc, Omega-3, and Cod Liver oil daily. I'm going to the doctor at the end of December to find out what's going on.

I've also noticed it's usually confined to one side of my face. Like this month it's my right side... I change my pillow case every day and use clean towels. I'm not sure what to do!!
