Conditions with symptom: 'facial cores'
Hi. I only just saw this page, have there been any more developments with this machine or treatments for facial sweating. Can facial sweating get worse with hidrex pop 1000, and if so, are these effects reversible if treatment stops? thank you kindly
Hi I've just turned 27 and had good skin really all my life and suddenly over the last month I've had little spots all over my face mainly on my forehead cheeks , chin and the sides of my nose these spots are so little I can't squeeze them I've tried facial scrubs and facial soaps but nothing is clearing them they seem to be getting worse please is there anything I can do or use?
I've not a clue but maybe you've had an allergic reaction or your just getting teenage acne alot later on?
I have no answer for you, but just wanted to say sounds very similar to my problem. I am 28, have little spots/unever skin round my hair line, jaw line, on my chin and a few on my cheeks. I have tried various spot washes but nothing seems to make any difference. They can feel a little sore at times too. I used to have such clear skin :-( xxx

Hello, I am a female in my 30s with receding hairline. I went to see a hair specialist due to this problem because I was tired of wearing wigs. After series of test I was prescribed minoxidil 12.5% to use daily and come back for quarterly checkup in the clinic. A month into this treatment, I realised my hair was already growing but also with it came loads of facial fur like hair which darkened my complexion straightaway. Although this a side effect of the medication, I stopped the treatment because I can't imagine waxing my face. My worry now is that will my face go back to normal with no facial hair and if yes, how long will it take or will I be subject to facial hair removal for the rest of my life. Please advice as I took time off work because of the blatant stare I get when I am out. Regards
Around two years ago i became really worried about the hair growth on my face and became so upset about this i shaved it off using a wet shave. I now suffer every morning having to get rid of the facial hair before applying my makeup. Do you have any advice which could help remove all this facial hair for good and stop the growth. Many Thanks.
I am on treatment for pitutary micro adenoma....do u think pitutary adenomas cause excessive facial hair? I started treatment 4 months ago. But the number of facial hair is fairely increased....what can i do?
I had a 5 cm cist that burst on my ovary and caused my appendix to come close to bursting.this was removed when I was 16.i wasn't really explained to about pcos.but when I was 20 I went for a laparoscopy,as I had more cists on my ovaries.i have been on Yasmin since I was 16 (i am now 25) and come from RSA.moved to the UK in feb and when I went to go get a prescription for Yasmin the doctor told me that that pill has been banned.so he has put me on logynon. I have always suffered since my teens with facial hair (quite bad) and weight issues,but now the weight has just piled on in the last 4 to 6 months I would say,I cannot lose it and honestly want to eat everything I see,although I am eating healthily. My facial hair has gotten way worse,and I am having awful stomach pain and lower back pain. I get sharper pains in my left and right side,and my headaches are relly bad. I heard on your programme that you can get a cream to remove facial hair for good,is this just for prescription? And also would you say I should go to the doctor for my tummy,or is it more urgent?
I have had spots on my penis for years now. I'm 19 and I want them removed. There are like facial spots, however sometimes one spot can grow to be really big (bigger then any spot I get on my face) red and very painful, the huge spots burst sometimes by themselves. But the other spots are like visible facial spots and aren't pleasing to the eye! I'm a virgin and have had no sexual contact with anyone I went to the doctors and they didn't do anything!! I just want them removed, what do you think they are? And what should I do? Thank you!
easy - clean your penis everyday
