hi rachel
toothpaste has no role in acne,it will make it worse.
brevoxyl is good one,u have to apply over pimple.
its better if u mix CLINDAC -A GEL with brevoxyl.
it will give quick rresult.
vitamin k has minor role in scar.
use face wash containing salicylic .
drink more water.

i went to the dr. yesterday for sore throat, body aches. was told it was not strep but viral infection. she did notice a pus pocket on the right side of my throat, I was prescribed antibiotics (Z-pack) for 5 days. My dr told me to gargle with salt / warm water. My question is should I try to remove the pus pocket myself with a q-tip, as that is what I have been reading online that several people remove the pus pocket with q-tip.

Hello. 3 days ago, I had a short-lived stomach virus,around 24 hours long, and vomited a total of 21 times, causing me to lose some weight and become dehydrated. Ever since then, I have had this continuing bad taste in my mouth. I tried drinking a lot of water, brushing my teeth and tongue constantly, and using mouth wash, but it doesn't seem to work. Originally, the bad taste originated in the left side of my mouth, along my tongue, and now it has spread to my entire tongue. I thought it may have been oral thrush, but I saw no film or change in my tongue's appearance.
