Personal Hygiene Changes

Face Doctor Soap has had remarkable success clearing up acne and complexion problems for people of all ages, because it eliminates microscopic parasites now thought by some to be the cause of the problem. It was awarded the 14th Annual Salon International Award for inventions in Geneva, Switzerland, where it was touted as being a “truly advanced skin care product.”

Skin that is rough and flushes, or if it is aging prematurely, experiencing acne, eczema, psoriasis or other blemishes, means there could be parasite activity. A team of doctors isolated a small unseen parasite called Human Demodex (demodex folliculorum aka the Eyelash Creature).

Many researchers believe that this parasite can cause complexion to become rough, lumpy and reddish, cause hair loss, premature aging of the skin, enlarged pores and acne.

The parasite looks like a microscopic worm and it feeds off skin. It takes only 10 days to grow from egg to full size and it multiplies at an extremely rapid rate if not treated properly, leading to Acne Rosacea, a bizarre type of skin rash that occurs primarily on the face.

In the Western Hemisphere, many theories about the origin of Rosacea have been put forth, but doctors are starting to accept that complexion problems may be due to this parasite. After extensive research, Dr. Mark Dahl, Chairman of the Dept. of Dermatology at the University of Minnesota Medical School, concluded that the lesions of virtually all Rosacea patients are infected by a parasite. And in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Dr. Frank C. Powell reported that 42 patients with Rosacea had on average four times as many of these parasites on their facial skin as compared to people without the condition.

For the general prevention of communicable diseases, washing hands during the day has been found to be an underutilized tool. Among those who do wash their hands regularly, many are not doing so correctly. Here are some tips from the report, on washing your hands effectively.

• Wet your hands with warm, running water and apply liquid soap or use clean bar soap. Lather well.

• Rub your hands vigorously together for at least 15 to 20 seconds.

• Scrub all surfaces, including the backs of your hands, wrists, between your fingers and under your fingernails.

• Rinse well.

• Dry your hands with a clean or disposable towel.

• Use a towel to turn off the faucet, and to open the door.

 


Personal Hygiene Changes can help with the following

Immunity  


Infections  

Cystitis, Bacterial Bladder Infection

For women, poor personal hygiene following urination or defecation can expose the vagina and urethra to bacteria from the surrounding area. To prevent bladder infections, practice good personal hygiene by always “wiping front to back” to keep bacteria from entering and colonizing the vagina and urethra. Wash the skin around the vagina, perineum and rectum daily. Shower or bathe but avoid bubble baths, bath oils and scented soaps, which can act as irritants. During menstruation, change sanitary pads every 2-3 hours and tampons every 4-5 hours. Sanitary pads and tampons containing deodorants or perfumes can irritate the skin, allowing bacteria to enter.



 

Parasite, Pinworm Infection

The following practices will help reduce the risk of continuous self-reinfection:



 

Colds and Influenza

The best way to reduce the likelihood of infection is regular hand washing, along with not touching the nose, eyes or mouth. The flu is highly contagious disease, spreading mostly by direct person-to-person contact. With the flu, coughing – even more than sneezing – is the most effective method of transmission.



 

Athletes Foot

Several placebo controlled studies report that good foot hygiene alone can cure athlete’s foot even without medication in as much as 40% of cases. Study protocols usually include twice-daily washing and drying of the feet and the mild antifungal activity in the cream vehicle used for the placebo[Am Fam Physician 2001;64:pp.791–6,803–4]



Lab Values  

Low White Count

When your white count is low, consider additional personal hygiene measures to reduce the risk of infection. Examples of these could include:



Skin-Hair-Nails  

Pruritus Ani

Hyperhidrosis

Washing under your arms with a mild soap once or twice a day can help reduce the bacteria in your armpits that actually cause offensive odor. This will not reduce the sweating, but can help with any offensive odor generated by these bacteria. Plese see the link to Lavilin also.



 

Eczema
