may be minor compared to more serious issues out there, but acne/blemishes? what do you guys use to clear up skin problems. I've tried a few things out there and some natural remedies, but I just wanted to see what everyone else did...

I am amused yet again, mocha. :P


@ ahojcookie: I think what dusty said is a little on the extreme. Hyper/hypothyroidism have several other symptoms, usually related to metabolism, so if you do have problems with your metabolism, height, etc. then it may be thyroid related.

Besides that, you may want to consult a psychiatrist. Most people with sudden anger bursts may be grounds for Manic/Depressive or Bi-polar disorders. The usual treatment for this is usually medications that affect synaptic transmission of certain neurotransmitters that may cause abrupt emotional changes.


@ adnilheart: Remember that Acne is a type of skin irritation where the pores of your face become clogged, either with dead skin cells or other debris, and sebum (oil) can't exit out of the pores.

This is relatively normal for adolescent individuals, especially since sebum release is triggered by adrenergic pathways (hormonal) resulting in excessively oily faces. Clogged pores begin to swell, forming pinhead sized papules (your typical pimple), which can be classified as white heads (closed, has a cap) and black heads (open, cap has been excised).

Usually, if the Acne is not too progressed, washing your face with mild wash ONCE or TWICE A DAY is enough. Do not excessively wash your face, as you are simply stripping off the sebum on your face, thus forcing your body to produce even more. The sebum (oil) forms a protective barrier against infection, so excessively stripping this layer off with harsh astringents only aggravates the situation.

More advanced stages of acne are notable by pustules (pus containing pimples) found around the face, as well as scars due to ruptured pimples that have previously been infected. Some doctors may prescribe medication to balance the hormones that produce the excess sebum, while prescribing antibacterial ointments for the infected skin.

If you have dry skin along with pimples, you should reduce washing of your face to ONLY once a day. Apply moisturizing lotion on the dry surfaces of your face (cheeks and jaw line), and place minimal amounts on your T-zone (nose and forehead), if none at all.

To summarize, you don't have to do much to take care of your face. The various products out there, most especially astringents and exfoliants that remove the superficial layer of the epidermis, only make things worse by promoting infection of the underlying skin.

Best way to prevent pimples is to eat a healthy diet, wash your face daily, and avoid stress.

Hey ed,
FYI, i wasn't pullin the thyriodism out of my ass... She's very skinny, (according to another thread i saw where she posted)
Another sign of Hyperthyriodism.
Haven't asked her how she feels about things around her neck tho

Ahoj, How do you feel about things around your neck, IE turtleneck sweaters or tight necklaces?
I doubt she needs to go to a psychaitrist (sp) because it seems that every other time the only problem she has like that is fatigue, which as ALSO a sign of hyper/hypo thyriodism.
*smiles*
Background on the patient first! Gotta do the leg work MAN!

^ now that you mention that, it may be Hyperthyroidism.

I mentioned that if there are problems with metabolism, it may be thyroid related. Well, anyway, thanks for clearing that up. If it were a face-to-face exam, I'd ask more than these things. Usually, we'd even have to ask family history and related medical history, but some of these details are a little too sensitive to reveal in public forums.

wash your face with warm water and a flannel every day. this should clear out your pores a bit. avoid using makeup that covers your entire face eg foundation. and i've found that Sudocrem works well for acne. i don't know if you can find it in the US but have a look for it; it's really good. failing that, clearasil or something every day should do the job ^_^


ive strained both my right bycept and my right calf. how do i rehabilitate them?


take it easy on them for a bit, avoid weightlifting and such for a few days and you'll be fine. and some gentle flexing or stretching would help, but nothing too much.
failing that, there are creams and such that you can buy that are supposed to help but i wouldn't recommend them.

I haven't had my period for four months now, and have never had sex. Should i be expecting a baby jesus or something?


Hormone disorder...don't worry I have it too. Ask your doc about birth control pills to regulate it.

Argh no really, im scared to look it up...


Your period might be irregular so at your age or so it's pretty much irregular. It'll come back. Or it's your hormones that might be the problem. They might be adjusting to your body and so on. Personally, I would say that I have gone through that stage when I was your age or so and don't worry. It's just your body...how would I say this...evolving into womanhood. You'll get a lot of missperiods.

Edit: All females go through a period of no periods. It's a cycle of growth. It's womanhood. No worries, it will come back. Now if you keep on having your periods everyday of the month, then you really need to go to the doctor.


well if u dont eat or didnt get much nitrient it stops or slows it down
