    Hi Pantherman, too much water is when you drink 3 or more quarts in an hour. This happened to me once -- I was sweating heavily and inline skating aggressively for an hour in the afternoon sun when...

    There are 2 forms of Vitamin A, water soluble and fat soluble: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11591229/

    Menthol in the ZZ cream is probably for the reason you described, so it tingles. I strongly dislike menthol because it burns my eyes, even the fumes.

    Sulfur is a miticide and is surely the active...

    Squalane is reported to have a carbon chain length of 28-32, so it isn't a food source for malassezia.

    Squalane has a very "soft" feel for an oil, behaving like it has a carbon chain length of...

    I make a Hair and Scalp treatment that is not a true pomade, but you can do lightweight styling with it, and it adds thickness to hair. It comes in 4 ounce bottles. As compared to a pomade, it is...

    Regenpure shampoo looks like it's worth trying, but don't expect too much from ketoconazole. In my experience, it's a lot better than not using anything at all, but it doesn't fully treat the...

    A few people have told me they experienced very extreme dryness after using Nizoral. I suspect it's because the surfactant in Nizoral is SLS or SLeS.

    The basis for my opinion is that...

    Hi Chai, skin texture improves by using an oil-based lotion with Vitamin A (0.05%), Vitamin D (0.005%), and High Molecular Weight Sodium Hyaluronate (0.3%). The percent of Sodium Hyaluronate isn't...

    The VeinWave treatment I've gotten isn't a laser or IPL -- it's a tiny jolt of electricity, delivered by a tiny needle. My skin was bright red for 2-3 days and it looked like a bad sunburn, but...

    Hi ants, spider veins are super-easy to eliminate with VeinGogh or VeinWave for about $150, for 3 treatments, only 2 of which are actually necessary. It seems logical that eliminating excess calcium...

    Hi Ruby, actually I'm saying that topical Vitamin D is very effective -- it removes excess keratin. I've been using 4,000 IU topically for almost 3 months now, and the last bits of excess keratin...

    Yes johnabetts, the EU's position on the cosmetic use of cholecalciferol makes no sense to me either -- it's a common food additive in milk in many countries. Apparently if you spilled milk on your...

    Since you’re getting what I’d describe as partially good results with sulfur, why don’t you try another brand of lotion? I say this because it sounds like you’re having an allergic reaction,...

    Like sejon said, the steroid is not going to help. And clotrimazole treats dermatophytes, which is usually called athlete's foot, and doesn't ever occur on the face because dermatophytes require a...
