@sweetu Hello, Benzoyl peroxide works by peeling away the skin to get rid of dead skin cells, excessive oil, and bacteria that may be trapped underneath. Such effects can lead to dryness, as well as redness and excessive peeling. You might notice itching and general irritation at the site of the application too. over-the-counter acne products and prescription drugs with benzoyl peroxide can really cause dry skin. Everyone who uses it has some amount of dryness, flaking, and peeling. Benzoyl peroxide can make your skin get dry and peel. To counter that, use a good moisturizer. Avoid products that further dry your skinOpt instead of gentle cleaners Or just rinse your face with water. Stop using other acne treatments, too.

RE: Prevention of Angioedema
@peru Hello, the best way to deal with and prevent allergic angioedema is to avoid the type of food that causes an allergic reaction. Allergic angioedema is treated by using a combination of antihistamines and corticosteroids to help relieve the swelling. Antihistamines work by blocking the effects of a protein called histamine, which is one of the chemicals responsible for causing your skin to swell. corticosteroids work by blocking many of your immune system's actions.
RE: Why do I have bump on my clitoris. What can be done to treat it?
@deesha-0 Please visit a doctor. Bumps and lumps on your vagina and vulva can be normal, or they could be a sign of a condition that requires medical attention. The white bumps could be Fordyce spots or sebaceous glands, which are small white or yellow-white bumps inside your vulva. Here are some things you can do to help relieve your symptoms: If you have cysts, take warm baths several times a day for a few days. That may help the cysts drain.
Avoid wearing clothing that rubs and chafes your vulva. Thanks
RE: Should I use vaginal wash?
@pennie Hello, The vagina is a self-cleaning organ that does not require special cleaning products. It does not even need any cleaning products at all.The vagina and vulva produce a variety of fluids that are important for overall health. People should not try to eliminate all vaginal odor by washing the vagina. A healthy vagina naturally has a slight odor. Washing the vagina will also not remove vaginal infections. In some cases, it may even make them worse. Using harsh soaps may dry out the delicate vaginal tissue, causing tiny tears that make it easier for dangerous bacteria to infect the vagina. washing the vagina increases the risk of a wide range of health problems like vaginal dryness. You can keep the area clean by keeping the vaginal area as dry as possible, which may involve changing underwear if it becomes wet with sweat, menstrual blood, or other fluids, urinating after having sex, to avoid developing a UTI and wiping from the front to back after urinating. It is important not to put soap into the vagina, and it is not necessary to use soaps that manufacturers have specifically labeled as being for the genitals. Thank you.
RE: What is a healthy diet for breastfeed babies and young children?
@elaine "From birth to 6 months of age, feed babies exclusively with breast milk (i.e. give them no other food or drink) and feed them on demand (i.e. as often as they want, day and night).
At 6 months of age, introduce a variety of safe and nutritious foods to complement breastfeeding, and continue to breastfeed until babies are 2 years of age or beyond.
Do not add salt or sugars to foods for babies and young children."
RE: Can iron supplements cause headaches?
@som Hello, Iron supplements can help treat anemia headaches, but too much iron in the body can also cause headaches. You also may feel grumpy, have headaches, and have trouble concentrating. Most people begin to feel normal after a few weeks of taking iron pills. Also, Headaches caused by IDA are treated by increasing your iron level with iron pills. Once your iron level is back to normal, your red blood cells will be able to carry the proper amount of oxygen to your brain. But you need to take the pills for several months to build up the iron supply in your body. It is better to talk to a doctor. Thanks!
RE: Knock knee surgery.
@ghosh Hi, There are two main surgeries to treat knock knees: A distal femoral osteotomy (DFO) and a DFO with tibial osteotomy. Distal femoral osteotomy, or DFO, surgery involves creating a cut in the femur just above the knee to reshape the bone and realign the entire limb. It depends on what is needed to correct. If we are talking about ligament damage e.g. ACL tear or cartilage damage then yes. If the consideration is for a knee replacement, then no - that is not done until later in life (50 years old and up). Thank You!!

Intractable hiccups seriously affect patients' rest and eating, reduce the quality of life, and increasingly attract the attention of oncologists. Hiccups are not a reported side effect of chemotherapy agents used for bladder cancer. They do produce nausea and vomiting.
