Important information about Retin-A

retin-a

Important information about Retin-A

From time to time, I share articles about health issues and popular pharmaceutical treatments if I think that they are extremely informative. This is one of those articles. This article shares a ton of information about a very popular acne treatment which has some pretty nasty side effects. I personally would far rather treat acne and skin conditions naturally, such as using essential oils.

General information

Accumulations of these cells can block the exit of the hair bulb and block the secretions of the gland. The gland is infected and an inflammatory process of the skin takes place, accompanied by the appearance of acne. Generic tretinoin corrects these deviations by reducing the density of the cell adhesion to each other and acceleration of their maturation. In opened acne, the drug causes the exit of the cells from the hair bulb, without creating skin inflammation. Acne, which happened to be closed, are opened under the influence of the drug and are more easily treated with retin-a buy.

Vitamin A is essential for normal functioning of the immune system and is an integral part in the process of infection control. Application of retinol improves the barrier function of the mucous membranes, increases the phagocytic activity of leukocytes and other factors of non-specific immunity. Vitamin A protects against colds, flu and infections of the respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract. The presence of vitamin A in blood is one of the main factors that are responsible for the fact that children in more developed countries endure infectious diseases such as measles and chicken pox much easier, while in countries with low standards of living, the mortality from these “harmless” virus infections is much higher. Consider the information mentioned above before purchase retin-a with no prescription.

Tretinoin generic contains an ingredient, which is called retinoic acid. The medicine is manufactured in in different forms.

Acne develops on the skin due to exfoliated epithelial cells during the growth of their production in the upper layer of follicular. Cheap retin-a corrects keratinization by increasing proliferation and reducing cell adhesion. Open acne treatment with retin-a generic enhances cell proliferation, makes the surface smooth without any signs of inflammation. Closed acne treatment leads to their transformation into the open, or makes them pimples (papules, pustules), which heal without scarring once removed keratin cork. The medicine also prevents the formation of new acne.

Recommended dosage and direction

If you purchase retin-a online, remember that the medicine is mainly used to cure acne.

If the physician did not recommend otherwise, the drug applied once a day after you purchase tretinoin. You can apply a gel, cream, or a solution of the medicine. Apply the medicine on the washed, dry surface of the affected area of the skin and spread the gel or cream with your finger. If you have already made purchase retin-a, it is advised to use a cotton swab when applying a solution of the medicine.

Sometimes the medication is applied to the entire face, sometimes only to certain parts of the body, sometimes locally, or at the places where there is an inflammation. It is desirable to apply the thinnest layer first, so that the cream smeared over the face and did not get into the eyes. Even if the gel gets just under the eyes, a severe irritation might occur. You can also go to bed with a special mask to cover the eyes from the light and medication.

When you buy retin-a online, you may feel a brief sensation of warmth or burning sensation after the first treatment. In the beginning of the treatment the acne may increase, this is because of the effect of the medicine on the deeply located acne, which were not noticed before. The best result of the treatment is usually seen after 7- 11 weeks. Treatment success largely relies on the insistence to continue the therapy.

Precautions

You should not buy tretinoin if you have: acute eczema or acute inflammatory skin processes.

Do not take the medication internally, prevent getting retin-a cheap in eyes or area under. In case of such contact, you should immediately wash your eyes with water. To prevent the damage of the skin you should not spend time in sunlight (it concerns those people who work in summer, as the sun in this treatment will only harm the skin. Patients with suntan can start the treatment after the sun weakening. Just as other medications, tretinoin buy should be stored out of reach of children.

High oral doses of retinoic acid have teratogenic effect on animals. However, studies on rats and rabbits have shown that the action of retinoic acid on the skin at doses 50 times higher than in humans (assuming that the usual dosage is about 500 mg of gel per day), there is no weakening of fertility or damage of the fetus. However, a number of embryos in rats and rabbits were noted to have a slight increase in irregular contours and ossification of the skull. During pregnancy one should avoid retin-a purchase.

Possible side effects

Before going to order retin-a, read about possible side effects that might take place.

Skin of some sensitive patients can become intense red, swell, blister and crusting. If these conditions continue, the treatment should be stopped to restore the integrity of the skin, or reduce the dose to tolerable values.

For the Consumer

Applies to tretinoin topical: topical cream, topical gel, topical kit, topical liquid

Stop using this medication and Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction while taking tretinoin topical (the active ingredient contained in Retin-A) hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Less serious side effects may include burning, warmth, stinging, tingling, itching, redness, swelling, dryness, peeling, irritation, or discolored skin.

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.

For Healthcare Professionals

Applies to tretinoin topical: topical cream, topical gel, topical kit, topical liquid

Dermatologic

A severe cutaneous reaction was reported in a patient who had an ice pack placed over an area treated with topical tretinoin. The area became pigmented and indurated, and the pigmentation persisted for an extensive length of time.

Dermatologic side effects are the most frequently reported side effects with the use of tretinoin topical. In double-blind, vehicle-controlled studies involving 339 patients who applied tretinoin topical 0.02% to their faces, adverse reactions associated with the use of tretinoin topical were limited primarily to the skin. Almost all patients reported one or more local reactions such as peeling, dry skin, burning, stinging, erythema, and pruritus. In 24% of all study patients, skin irritation was reported that was either severe (about 7%), led to temporary discontinuation of tretinoin topical 0.02% (about 20%), or led to use of a mild topical corticosteroid. About 5% of patients using tretinoin topical 0.02%, compared to less than 1% of the control patients, had sufficiently severe local irritation to warrant short-term use of mild topical corticosteroids to alleviate local irritation. About 4% of patients had to discontinue use of tretinoin topical because of adverse reactions. Tretinoin may induce photosensitivity in some individuals, as well as an increased susceptibility to irritation from wind, cold, and dryness.

Local

Local side effects including a retinoid dermatitis has been reported to occur frequently at the areas treated with topical tretinoin and is characterized by erythema, dryness, scaling, pruritus, and variable degrees of irritation.

Local reaction is commonly observed during the initial phase of therapy, but may not appear until as late as ten weeks into treatment. The dermatitis generally subsides with prolonged use of the medication, although in some cases may require a dosage adjustment or discontinuation of therapy. True contact dermatitis has been reported and confirmed with patch testing and leukocyte migration inhibition studies, but is uncommon. Rarely, there may be temporary hyper- or hypopigmentation following repeated applications.

Ocular

Ocular side effects including ectropions may develop infrequently and are reversible. A transient and harmless stinging of the eye may occur when tretinoin is applied onto the surrounding skin, generally lasting about 30 to 60 seconds.

Hepatic

Hepatic side effects including reversible, clinically insignificant changes in liver function tests have been reported following both oral and topical administration of tretinoin. These abnormalities include elevations in serum bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase, and glutamic-pyruvic transaminase.

Nervous system

Nervous system side effects including a case of neurotoxicity in a patient with liver disease have been reported.

The patient developed neurological side effects following 4 weeks of tretinoin administration. Symptoms included headache, memory loss, truncal ataxia, and dysarthria, all of which improved upon temporary discontinuation of medication and recurred when the patient resumed usage. Upon withdrawal of medication a second time, the symptoms resolved within 4 weeks.

Genitourinary

Estrogen levels appeared not to have been affected.

Genitourinary side effects including an isolated case of vaginal bleeding related to tretinoin use has been reported in a post-menopausal woman and confirmed upon rechallenge.

Drug interactions

One should pay special attention in the case of simultaneous treatment with other medicaments. If the patient received another course of treatment before treatment with retin-a order, it is recommended to wait until the skin returns to normal condition.

Missed dosage

If you forget to apply the next dosage of the medication, apply the gel at the usual time.

Overdose

In case of overdose after you buy retin-a, the skin might become red, begin to peel or the patient feels a discomfort.

Storage

As all other medicaments this drug should be stored out of reach of children. Do not use the medicament after the expiration date indicated on the packaging. Under normal storage conditions, all forms of the drug have a period of about three years of a half-life period.

So Tell Me What You Want

So Tell Me What You Want…

By John H. Sklare, Ed.D, Lifescript Personal Coach

Published November 04, 2013

Even though we’re all different, there’s something we all have in common. Occasionally, we must have difficult conversations with other people about tough topics.

Since these situations are so diverse and involve different levels of apprehension and emotional intensity, there’s no single formula that works for each. However, there are some fundamentals about setting the stage for having these types of discussions that are helpful, regardless of the circumstances.

The conversation might happen at work (such as asking for a raise or promotion) or it may be something that involves your personal life (like talking to your significant other about finances or sexual intimacy). While these conversations can be difficult, the better you are at having them, the happier you’re likely to become.

Here are 6 basic guidelines that set the stage for asking a difficult question:

1. Prepare: First, create a script that clearly and concisely states what you’re asking for. Take your time and make sure that you’re delivering the exact message you want the other party to hear.

2. Rehearse: Next, rehearse your script while looking at yourself in the mirror. As silly or uncomfortable as you may find this, it will help shape the end result significantly. Just as an actor or actress must rehearse their lines, so must you. The more often you run through your script, the more comfortable you’ll be with the message when you’re delivering it for real.

3. Attire: Dress appropriately when you’re ready to ask your question. This is particularly true if you are, as in my example earlier, asking for a raise or promotion. The phrase dress for success makes sense in this situation, because the way you dress also delivers a powerful, unspoken message!

4. Opening statement: The opening statement truly sets the tone, so begin by saying something like, “I have something that I would like to speak to you about that’s difficult for me to bring up.” In the vast majority of cases, people will then typically reply with something like, “Please, go ahead. What is it?” A statement like this puts the other person in a position where they’re now asking YOU to tell them what you want. This creates a subtle but significant difference.

5. Connect: Make eye contact or physical contact if appropriate! If it’s a loved one you’re addressing, a touch on the shoulder or short hug may even be suitable.

6. Give thanks: Look them directly in the eye and, with heartfelt sincerity, thank them for their time and for listening to your request.

One of the surest ways to find peace of mind and happiness is to be proactive about getting those things you want and need. To increase your potential for becoming a member of this happy, select group, you simply must learn how to effectively ask for what you want.

Yet another DUH moment.

ginger-kid-face-palm

Well, I pulled a major DUH moment. My son deals with autism and ADHD. He takes meds to help with these issues, as prescribed by his psychiatrist. Before she left on maternity leave, she wrote him prescriptions for his meds and said if anything comes up before she returns that I should take him to the emergency room. I pulled his scripts out today to go get them filled and just realized that she forgot to give me one for his anxiety med. And he took the last one this morning. So, I tried to call her office to see if she left any instructions for something like this. I discovered that no one is in while she’s out. Lovely. So at 9 am, I called our family doctor’s office to see if she would be willing to call the prescription in for us until the psychiatrist comes back. I’m still waiting to hear if she will do it or if I need to take him in to see her.

This could be an interesting weekend without his medication.

Why can nothing be easy? *sigh*

15 Things You Should NOT Refrigerate… Ever!

Not-Allowed-In-The-Refrigerator

15 Things You Should NOT Refrigerate… EVER!

Our good friends over at www.goodshomedesign.com was kind enough to put together this list. I knew a few of these items should not be refrigerated. Some of them took me by surprise. So I thought, “Gee, if I didn’t know all of these, I wonder how many of my loyal LHWP fans didn’t know them either?”

So here’s the list. Let me know by commenting on this post how many you already knew!

Secrets in the kitchen are worth telling if they can help everybody use ingredients at their maximum potential. With technology present in our lives at a much higher level than in the past, you might tend to overuse it in your relation with food. This list of 15 things you should not refrigerate is thought to allow you for a better use of a variety of ingredients.

Foods

1. Hot sauce will lose some of its proprieties if kept in the cooler. The hardened contents just won’t work as good. Deposit about any hot sauce you buy from the store away from any sunny or hot place and whip it out from the pantry every time you need to spice up your meal.

Hot sauce

2. Potatoes are best kept in a paper bag somewhere in the pantry. That’s because all kinds of potatoes (red, white, fingerling etc.) become moist if preserved in plastic bags. Mold is also a cause of concern in the latter case, so make sure paper is your first choice of storing potatoes.

Potatoes

3. Bread doesn’t handle very well in the fridge as it dries out quickly. A recommended method is storing it in a dry place. The temperature should be at room levels.

Bread

4. Onions are something to be extra careful about, because they don’t just need a bag (or any other medium) that allows circulation, but also will rot away if you keep it close to potatoes.

Onions

5. Tomatoes are fine in the fridge, if you want them to be tasteless. But if you want them to ripen faster, put them in a paper bag. If not, away from the refrigerator and out of plastic bags to prevent getting them mealy.

Tomatoes

6. Avocados can be stored in the fridge only after they are ripe; and up to a week so. Also, don’t cut it into slices because you will only make it possible to allow browning much quicker.

7. Coffee changes its taste when refrigerated. This happens because of condensation, so if you want your coffee beans or grounds to be as flavored as they come in the pack, store it in the pantry. Make sure the container is kept airtight though.

Coffee

8. Garlic can be stored for months, two to be more precise. Mold and loss of flavor are the main effects of refrigerating garlic. This applies to the whole garlic, but minced one can be kept in the fridge if used ASAP.

Garlic

9. Honey shouldn’t be stored at cold temperatures because it will cause it to crystalize. The great thing about this awesome food is that it can be kept in plain air in the pantry, because it isn’t processed at all and found like that in its natural form.

Winter Squashes

11. Melons will be more flavored if they are kept on the counter. This way the antioxidants found in the fruit will be preserved more intact. But only if you don’t cut it beforehand. After the slicing has occurred, you have up to 4 days to eat it while storing it in the fridge.

Melons

12. Oils can be kept placed in the refrigerator if it’s nut oils involved. If not, the place recommended for oils is in the pantry so they can’t get thick or cloudy in the process.

Oil

13. Fruits will lose a bit from their flavor if refrigerated. Berries, peaches or nectarines are perfect if kept on the counter and consumed when ripe. Enjoy!

Non Foods

14. Batteries  shouldn’t be kept in the fridge contrary to the common misconception that it should somehow improve their performances. Actually, the extreme temperatures will only make the batteries work badly.

15. Nail Polish will modify its component chemicals if kept in the fridge. So if you want your nail polish to work at proper parameters don’t store it at cool temperatures and under sunlight but at room temperature and in shaded places.
