Sick of My Skin!

Anyone has any ideas or products that work well for acne? I had a lot of skin trouble after my first child and ended up having to spend a fortune to see a dermatologist. Now that the 2nd has come along so has my acne. I am planning on breastfeeding for as long as I can and the products the dermatologist had me on I can not use. I would like to find a product that works and is not too harsh on the skin as the prescription products. Any ideas?

Any Suggestions for Severely Dry and Cracked Skin..?

Hi Moms, My husband has really neglected his FEET! I had no idea they were this bad. He has such cracked skin on the bottoms of his feet, especially in the heel area. Does anyone have suggestions on a home care regimen.. and products for this? I get pedicures a few times a year and they do all of that at the salon. He really doesn't want to get a pedicure and I'm getting worried about how bad they are. HELP!!

Rosacea After Baby

Hi Moms- I am desperate for a solution. I was diagnosed with Rosacea, and given Metrogel to use. I haven't noticed an improvement, it's been a month. I am looking for any kind of remedy, or dietary advice. When I look on the web the information is overwhelming and conflicting. I have seen some literature on the connection between Rosacea and aspartame, so I am trying to quit drinking diet cokes (that is my only vice!). Has anyone else found success with eliminating asparatame or any other item from diet, to help manage Rosacea? Thanks!!

Skin Care Routine for Sensitive Skin

I am so clueless about beauty stuff. I've been using Noxema since I was 12. I'm now 37 and I have no idea what to do to fix my skin. I get clogged pores and pimples -- my skin is worse now than it was when I was younger. Anything I try (even organic stuff) seems to make my skin either break out or dry out within a few days. I currently do Noxema, remove it with a washcloth for a little exfoliation, then use witch hazel as a toner, and coconut oil as a moisturizer. This is OK but I feel like skin care must have improved since my grandmother...

Skin Tag on Ear

Hi Mamas, My 19 month old son was born with a skin tag on his ear. I consulted with an ENT today, and he said it was a routine procedure to remove it, however, required my son to use anesthesia. I'm debating whether putting my baby under is worth the removal. He said it was low risk procedure. Have any of you ever done this before? Why and why not? How was your child through the process and recovery? What have you been told about the risks of removing it versus the risks of not? Thanks for sharing your experiences.

My Daughter Has a Wart :(

My 7yo daughter has had a bump on the underside of her wrist for a while now. At her well visit I asked the doctor about it and he said that it is a wart. He said we could leave it alone, try an over the counter remedy or have it frozen off in the dr's office (but that would be a bit painful). It doesn't seem to bother her and she doesn't know the stigma behind warts but I would like it gone. Occasionally she'll pick at it until it bleeds a little. I definitely don't want to put her thru anything painful. I also don't want to make a big...
