Can I Post Attachments?

I have useful information that I would like to post as an attachment but I'm over the limit.  Please re-set my screen name allowance or tell me how can we make this happen?

An Effective Seb Derm Scalp Treatment

19 August 2013 - 02:29 PM

An aesthetic and effective lightweight hair gel can be made with 100 ml of Aloe Vera, 5 ml of Hegor 150 shampoo, and 2 grams of Xylitol.


I actually used 0.07 grams of Climbazole powder dissolved in 1 ml of Isopropanol and added 5 ml of my custom-blend Cetaphil lotion, instead of Hegor 150, but my mix is equivalent to 1 part in 20 dilution of Hegor 150.  Both mixes are just barely over the EU guidelines for a full body leave-on product, so they are safe as a scalp product.  


My suggestion for a Hegor 150 mix is because most people don’t home compound, and I would like to hear back from anyone who tries this 1 to 20 ration of Hegor 150 as to its aesthetics. 


The mix takes about 20 minutes to dry, and then my hair looks and feels normal.  My “normal” was no hair gel and no hair styling products, so I’m pleased this mix is very lightweight and leaves my hair normal and maybe even a little better.  Hurray, I have an effective leave-on product for my scalp -- I didn’t like using medicated lotion on my scalp because it looked like 1960’s Elvis-hair.

Treatment With 5% Bp + 0.5% Erythromycin, Or 5% Bp + 1% Clindamycin

28 March 2013 - 04:32 PM

Attached is a recent medical article about biofilms that discusses acne treatments using ointments with either 5% benzoyl peroxide + 0.5% erythromycin, or 5% benzoyl peroxide + 1% clindamycin.  These acne treatments are discussed on page 4. 


I believe biofilms are the principal reason why acne or any type of dermatitis is so difficult to diagnose and treat.
