Tretinoin Gel (retin A)

I have only read that it is for the treatment of acne. I'm not sure how this would work on scars. Over-the-counter scar cream is widely available, but it isn't likely to produce significant results. Although scar cream may help reduce the appearance of some scars, results vary — and no scar can be completely erased. If you're concerned about the appearance of a scar, ask your doctor about other treatment options. Possibilities may include prescription corticosteroid creams, silicone-based products, laser treatment, or collagen or steroid injections. I found this through the mayo clinic, I hope this helped.

retin a for wrinkles

I thought Retin-a was for the treatment of acne and that Renova was designed for treating wrinkles.The differences between Retin-A and Renova are that while both products are used for skin care, they are meant to treat two entirely different conditions. Retin-A is a medication that treats severe acne by helping skin expunge impurities that cause blackheads and blemishes. Renova helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Each medicine is manufactured by the same company, however, Retin-A is currently designated to be used only as a treatment for acne vulgaris.

waxing and tretinoin

I would definitely call a doctor or a pharmacist right away. You might be able to put something on it like healing ointment - Eucerin, it could cause zits but at least you might prevent scarring. I hope you get better and I hope this helped. MC  (Feb 11, 2009 | post #2)

If You Can Wait, Consider Retin-A

For those of you who did not get any info on Retin-a I looked some up. The active ingredient in Retin-A is something called Treninoin, which is an acidic form of Vitamin A. It assists loosening the pores to release dirt and oil build-up from the skin. Retin-A also helps prevent the skin from forming new build-ups by keeping the skin from sticking together. I found this online and there was a lot more info if you want to read it go to http://www.accessr x.com/buy_retin-a_ online.htm I hope this helped. MC  (Feb 11, 2009 | post #4)

21 years old and recently been having trouble..

Ok, the main thing that concerns me is the fact that you said you've been having vertigo. That could be an underlying health issue that you are not aware of. I would see a doctor, tell him or her the issues you are having and let them run some tests on you. Knowing is better than not knowing and it could ease your mind, there might not be anything wrong. But I don't think you should be having such issues at 21. I found a website on vertigo, I hope this helps and good luck.

Warts

I have got 18 big warts in my fingers for about 5 years!!...

Have you tried putting the acid on and them putting some duct tape over them? It might sound funny but they will suffocate and fall off. My son had a wart on his foot that just wouldn't go away and we ended up putting the acid on with the tape, over and over and eventually it fell out of his foot. I hope this helped.

Warts

Genital Warts Treatments

I would be scared to use the freeze off treatment on my genitals, but the Aldara cream works and there are some side effects but not as bad as having warts. I get mine here http://www.accessr x.com/aldara_cream .htm I hope this helps. MC  (Feb 9, 2009 | post #11)

Surgeons remove kidney through vagina

BALTIMORE - Surgeons removed a woman’s kidney through her vagina so she could give it to her ailing niece, an unusual operation they hope will encourage others to donate because it reduces pain, scarring and recovery time. Doctors at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine said donor Kimberly Johnson, 48, and her niece, Jennifer Gilbert, 23, were both doing well following operations Thursday. “It was easier than childbirth,” said Johnson, who has three children.  (Feb 2, 2009 | post #1)

Criminal Investigation Launched in Salmonella Outbreak

The federal government has launched a criminal investigation into the Georgia peanut processing plant linked to a national salmonella outbreak that has sickened more than 500 people and killed eight, officials said today. The criminal probe will be carried out by the Food and Drug Administration's criminal division and the Department of Justice. The FDA said there have been 28 new cases of salmonella-related illness diagnosed since last Sunday.

Phelps' 'Mistake': De-Stressing or Chasing a Thrill?

As the buzz over published pictures of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps apparently smoking marijuana continued, many may ask what might have motivated the star athlete to be embroiled in such a high-profile disgrace -- for the second time in his career.

New ED Drug Progresses to Market, May Provide Less Side E...

It may take a few more years, but men may eventually have another FDA-approved alternative when it comes to providing effective treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). Pharmaceutical manufacturer Rexahn says their medication Zoraxel does not cause severe, rare side effects associated with Viagra/Cialis/Levi tra. Zoraxel also stimulates neurotransmitters in the brain, whereas PDE-5 inhibitors only target end-organ erectile function and work in peripheral blood vessels. Rexahn announced earlier this week that it has completed enrollment in its Phase IIa clinical trial evaluating Zoraxel. A drug may be introduced to the FDA for approval after successful Phase 3 testing. Potential introduction to the U.S. market, then, could reasonably be expected in a few years, just about the time the patent for Viagra will expire (March, 2012).  (Feb 2, 2009 | post #1)

Viagra Used as Treatment for Babies & Children With Heart...

Although some medical professionals are hesitant to speak on the subject, Viagra appears to be gaining increasing favor as a treatment for heart-related issues in children. Fifteen babies or children with pulmonary hypertension in Trinidad and Tobago have been successfully treated with Viagra, according to Dr. Jose Nunez of the Gulf View Medical Centre. "We inform the parents about why we are using it," he said. "There is minimal risk and we have gotten good results from them in terms of delaying the onset of pulmonary hypertension so that these children could go abroad and have surgery successfully. " A U.S. doctor from the University of Mississippi Medical Center was also quoted as saying he supports the use of Viagra in children in the Trinidad & Tobago Express article. http://www.trinida dexpress.com/index .pl/article_news?i d=161430012  (Feb 2, 2009 | post #1)
