  1. Yes. Acne isn't actually caused by oily skin. Differin is retnoid that turns the skin cells over faster. It takes 4-6 weeks to be effective.
  2. I would first try having him wash his face with a benzoyl peroxide based face wash in the morning and CeraVe foaming face wash at night. Apply Differin at night. Use strides salicylic face pads in the morning. You may have to start off with alternating Differin every other night if it is irritating his face.
  3. You could order 8 pairs from Amazon wardrobe and see if you can find any that you like.
  4. Influenza infection rate was at an all-time low in South Africa during their flu season. They contribute it to masks and hand washing.
  5. Our schools have been in person for 9 weeks with very low numbers. 30 cases out of 11000 staff/students and no in classroom spread. Masks are required
  6. Well I'll take my PhD and ignorant self and go home then. 😂
  7. Did a little poll of friends with this-- all TX, LA, and some OK friends use the term "pot plant" and never potted plant. They all never consider pot as being a marijuana plant. Other states all used potted plant. Definitely regional. I love learning about regional sayings.
  8. The biggest drawback is driving. I live between a small town and huge city. I'm 15 minutes from all the shopping that I personally need. My friends who live out in the country drive 45 minutes to an hour to get to co-op twice a week, grocery stores are an hour away, doctors visits, therapy services, etc are all a drive of at least an hour. For families with kids who want to have any sort of social life, play sports etc OR If you have kids that have special needs and need to visit therapists, then living in the country means driving A LOT. I grew up in the country, and really loved it, howeve
  9. No major diet changes. She turned 18 this summer, so maybe hormones?
  10. She is halfway through a bottle of this, so maybe we should keep it up for a bit longer
  11. 13. All before age 27. I've been in the same house for 20 years.
  12. She has normal college student stress. Walks the dog about 2 miles a day.
  13. Normal menstrual cycle, no rash, no history of any sort of illness at all. She hasn't gotten a cold in 5 years. The last time she was actually sick she was 13 and got tonsillitis. Always feels fine
  14. Southwest-- pot plant= potted plant
  15. My 18-year-old daughter has always had thin hair and it appears to be getting even thinner and is very concerning to her. hey doctor's visit with blood work showed no problems so I'm looking for some sort of shampoo or treatment that might help. I've always had crazy thick hair so I have no experience in this area. Do any of the shampoos or other topical treatments out there really help?
  16. For me these things are not related. I'm terrible at directions and get lost really easily. I'm good at card games and good at mechanical things, I can take things apart and put them back together as well as run all kinds of equipment. I've always had to think a moment to tell my right for my left. My visual/spatial skills are meh and Iactually have to move things around a room in order to figure out where they go and I'm not musical at all. My DH is an engineer and it's good at directions, and I don't think he's ever been lost. He can quite literally fix anything and has perfect visual
  17. I use Jarrow, Thorne, Rainbow Lite brands.
  18. Does anyone here have cough variant asthma? I have been dealing with this for a decade, but my usual treatments are not working. I am on my third trial inhaler and I just cannot quit coughing. Having a cough during Covid is NOT a good thing. I take allergy meds and singulair in addition to a daily inhaler. I used Breo for years, but it just quit working. I have tried Symbicort and Dulera, but not luck. I did a round of oral steroids, which worked, but 3 days after stopping I am coughing again.
