I have excessive hair loss and need a second opinion on the drug that my dermatologist prescribed for me. The drug he prescribed is Spironolactone 25 mg. tab. I read that it is usually used for excessive hair growth in women. I am a woman but don't want to take the wrong thing and end up losing more hair than I already have.

I recently had botox after years of having injections and had some type of reaction that inflamed the skin in my forehead and caused both cystic activity (deep mounds beneath the skin) and closed comedones; all of which are scarring aggressively. Because the acne is not red and raised, I had a Dermatology PA simply downplay and conveyed disbelief that my skin scarred so quickly. Any suggestions?

I had this extremely small what I thought was a skin tag or flesh colored mole. After biopsy, turned out to be a very small basal cell carcinoma. They are going to do a ED& C procedure on it. I have a few questions. Wouldn't the biopsy have already taken it off since it was so minute? Also how long does this procedure take? Do they go really deep? She told me they do it 3 times. If I were to do nothing, would it be dangerous to let it go?
