Acid from lab experiment gave me blisters?
During lab on Monday, our class used glacial acetic acid (pure acetic acid) for our titrations. After lab was over, I took off my gloves and I noticed that my left hand smelled of acetic acid. I tried washing it off but the smell persisted. I shrugged, figured it was nothing, and left.

The next day, I noticed that blisters had formed on my left hand. They didn't hurt so I drained them. While doing so, I couldn't resist the temptation of peeling off some of the dead skin. Now it looks like this:

What's the best way to heal it at this state? It doesn't hurt at all but the appearance of it is quite nasty. I've been hiding it with bandaids for a day now.
Also, is acetic acid known to cause blistering if it comes in contact with skin?

  I would keep them loosely covered to prevent infection, but let some air get to them so they will heal properly.

And any acid can cause blistering.

Can acetic acid be used for hair regrowth?..Is it harmful to scalp in diluted form?

  Well, you could try it, but ask him everything before you can try and apply that solution. It's important to understand that acetic acid (alcoholic vinegar) must not be used in high concentration cause it causes burns like most acids do. Try also reading about it on net and see if anyone is using mentioned solution.

What you can do to prevent hair loss is to see your doctor and tell him about this problem you have. He'll most likely put you on finasteride therapy and I suggest you start using minoxidil solution (2% or 5% solution) along with Nizoral shampoo (up to 3 times a week). These are known as "The Big Three" that apparently solve hair loss problem in men and stimulate hair regrowth. I've also read stories about this Laser Comb that helps stimulate blood flow through hair base (if I remember correctly) but it's not cheap.

In any case, it is crucial that you start the therapy as soon as possible to prevent further hair loss because later it will be more and more difficult to regrow hair.

I hope this helps :)

How to treat skin burned by use of strong acetic acid and mild ammonia?
It was a wasp bite and someone suggested acetic acid for fast relief. The person applied 100% acetic acid, it was a hell burning feeling immediately, I washed the area. Little later I applied dilute ammonia. After approximately two hours the area started turning black and within 5 hours it has turned dark black. After 24hrs though there is no pain or irritation but worried about the blacking of skin as it is on my forehead, please suggest.

What are the skin conditions vinegar (acetic acid) highlights?
Its known that applying vinegar (acetic acid 3-5% solution) for 5 minutes can help to highlight hard to see warts, genital warts.
However, it's stated that there are other skin conditions which could be also highlighted by applied vinegar.
What are they?

Would adding Acetic acid in a solution of urine and benedict's solution make a falsely positive result?
I tested my urine with some Benedict's reagent at home. At first it was greenish yellow in color but after adding some Acetic acid the solution turned yellow in color. Does this mean that I have hyperglycemia and positive for diabetes? I just ate a heavy dinner prior to the test.

How do I treat a chemical burn from acetic acid (vinegar) on my face?
Attempting to eliminate some acne whiteheads using apple cider vinegar, I applied the vinegar too long rsulting in, presumably, a chemical burn from the acetic acid. What can I do to treat this and minimize scarring?

  NOTHING BUT WATER----- and oil free moisturizer for at least 3 days----unfortunately this skin is now dry ...dead .. irritated... will continue to flake off until get to new skin underneath.... sorry... after that.. try... this as face wash...


THIS WORKS FAST & CHEAP!!!
I used Tetracycline, Proactive, Retina A and had many expensive facials with less than good results. This has worked for me and many many other happy people.

Go to pharm., Drug store, or Wal-Mart, buy "PURPOSE" bar of soap - Blue box - Made by Johnson & Johnson - wash your face with this 2-3x's per day. Also pick up a LOW strength Benzoyl-peroxide cream, apply the cream by dabbing to the individual blemishes.... DON’T rub it in works using a oxidation/reduction reaction. It will unclog
dry it out and bring it to a head...DON’T over use this or put anywhere else on your face. It will cause drying and make you look worse.

Salicylates such as found in regular aspirin among other products work very similar but also remove layers of skin...other over the counter creams with this product will dry out pimples but maybe too hash and cause surrounding skin trauma..
I have seen many people recommending crushing aspirin and making a paste which probably will dry out the blemish but again pretty strong and probably will cause more tissue damage and bigger scars as an anti inflammatory probably would take the redness out... again pretty harsh for sensitive skin.

Also, If need which probably will for moisture ASK FOR "NUTRADERM lotion" - the original not the new stuff, this works great and wont clog pores or leave a residue on your skin...Any lotion that is completely oil free and hypo allergic should work but again I recommend Nutraderm. I have heard from people online that "Purpose" also makes a lotion that is good, Neutrogena, and Nivea make good products also. I recommend Nutraderm from experience and my dermatologist.

"Purpose Bar" & "Nutraderm" are oil free and hypo allergic they contain no perfumes and are great for both men and women. I have also heard great reports of this soap helping improve skin tone. Some people recommend the "Purpose liquid soap" saying
that the bar did dry out their skin some. The rational behind using the bar is that there are no ingredients in it that will clog pores, and according to dermatologists they recommend the Bar. I have also heard good responses from "cetaphil soap". These products are safe for all skin colors and tones. I highly discourage use of Proactive and other harsh chemicals for people with some natural color in their face due to the bleaching and drying effect it has shown in many many people.

Additional TIPS: acne, pimples, etc are frequently cause by a bacteria or hormone issues that cause clogging of pores. DON’T PICK POP POKE (your hands are the dirtiest part of your body) and will cause: infections, spreading of germs, more breakouts and scarring
DON’T EVER listen to people online who tell you to scrub your sensitive skin or use harsh chemicals such as: Lemon juice, vinegar, alcohol, etc... DON’T EVER use that APRICOT CRAP!!! DON’T USE PROACTIVE- this is expensive and harsh it may kill the bacteria because also Benzoyl based wash but will irritate skin and cause bleaching of face and neck.... Other similar treatments may work.. Also things such as Accutane but have SERIOUS side effects such as Major Depression, & birth defects in unborn children, among others
If you wear make up make sure it is oil free, & hypo allergic...Eating healthy...Drinking plenty of water.. Changing pillow cases freq. ...avoiding dirty sports equip. such as helmets...can not hurt...Acne/pimples again are caused by pores/hair follicles becoming plugged up, this plugging then causes an inflammatory reaction - redness and infection (pimple)..black head is dirt or old oil trapped in pore, while a white head is the same thing you just don’t see the dirt instead you see white pus (lymphocytes that accumulate in the area to fight the infection) It has been shown in many studies this most often not caused by what you eat (chocolate etc... or how clean you are) but most often by either excess oils plugging pores or a bacteria on the skins surface. - Proactive works in some people because it is a strong Benzoyl peroxide based washed but is most freq. to strong
for people with sensitive skin - this is why alot of people get excessive drying and flaking, rashes, bleaching or breakouts from the product. Retina-A does decrease the bacterial growth on your face but also removes dead/living skin, this can work well in some individuals and has been shown to reduce wrinkles and scars but again I feel this is pretty harsh on sensitive skin prone to breakouts. If you choose Retina-A never use this product during the day only at night due to the sensitivity it will give you to the sun. You must also get a prescription for this product and I really don't believe it is worth the damage it does to your skin. In some rare cases for very deep/large boils and cyst types
of pimples oral antibiotics maybe needed but I would first recommend trying "purpose" and a low dose "benzoyl-peroxide cream" along with a good oil free moisturizer "Nutraderm... etc" this does work well.

THIS WORKS FAST AND CHEAP!!! I no longer get expensive facials, take oral antibiotics, or even NEED makeup... I am very happy - Have very good skin... and have many many other happy friends... THANKS again to my WONDERFUL DERMATOLOGIST... TRY THIS!! GOOD LUCK.... PS. "PURPOSE" costs about $3 ---------------------------------------------

  I have cured warts my daughter had on her fingers with Apple Cider Vinegar, I applied a cotton ball soaked in it and taped it to the wart daily and removed parts of it as it turned black, took less than a week. While this was not genital, hpv causes warts in various places on the body and it certainly wont hurt to try it, although it can cause some skin irritation. Her Wart did not return.

  I bought some, paid $25 for it, and than never used it, now I wish I knew how to get rid of it. I looked up my town's information on getting rid of toxic waste and it didn't list this as an option for them to take care of something like this.

Here is there address and contact info:

Conservation Support Systems
P.O. Box 91746
Santa Barbara, CA 93190
PH. (805) 682-9843
Fax (805) 682-2064

Says this on it: Caution, for use by professional conservators only and list other cautions.

I asked my naturopath about it and she said you have to be very cautious about using this for any medical issues, it can be dangerous.

If anyone knows how I can rid of this in a safe way let me know.

Thanks for the added information, that's what I thought you wanted it for. That's what I read about before I bought it. My naturopath didn't go into detail to tell me why she doesn't choose to use this in her practice.

I got a bit tiny glacial acetic acid burn on my face. they said it will cause serious burn. Will it scar?
am I going to have a permanent scar?

  Hello,

It depends on the depth of the burn, - whether it is "full-thickness," or only half the thickness of the skin.

It also depends on whether the skin-edges can heal directly together, or if it there is a hole which has to fill up with a little pledgit of scar tissue, first.

If the wound-healing process gets infected, that tends to make scarring worse, too.

Within a day or two, you should know whether this is a deep, or only a superficial burn, - from the appearance of the scab. How painful it was at the time, is some guide, too, - the more painful, the deeper.

It needs to be kept clean and covered with a dressing. Any infection might need an antibiotic.

My suspicion is that this will *not* produce a noticeable scar. You describe the whole thing as "tiny," which is good.

I hope this is of some help.

Best wishes,

Belliger

P.S. I used to be very interested in Dermatology, and I don't charge : )

I disagree about this being the time to buy scar- removal cream over the counter, - this is the time to get the best possible, primary skin healing, in my opinion. Scars come much later, if at all.

If you look at the reference above, you will find it is all about *acne" scars. Acid-burn scars, - if any, - are *completely* different kettles of fish.

HELP! I have Ear Fungus?
I went to the doctors monday and he told me that I have ear fungus in my right ear and slight in my left, i have no ear wax due to the fact that i use QTips for cleaning. I use these because when i was younger i had a problem with wax build up, lol. He never told me what to do with it like do i keep it dry or anything like that it was just write me out a precription and be done. He put me on Hydrocortisone/acetic acid drops and a pain killer. The ear it self is not painful and since monday I have only had one headache and it seems to be getting better. Im a little worried about this, What else can I do???

  Nothing. The fungus will die from the antibiotics, perhaps in a day or two, and your ear will begin to heal. Common symptoms of an outer ear infection are : nausea, headaches, muffled hearing, and crying.

For acidity or hyperacidity, Ayurveda says to avoid foods that contain tartaric acid, citric acid, lactic acid?
It tells to avoid sour foods that have acid content, i.e., to avoid tamarind (contains tartaric acid), citric fruits (contain citric acid), & curds (contain lactic acid). Is this scientific? does main-stream medicine or allopaths say the same?
Authoritative answers would be fine!

  "Acid symptoms could actually be a symptom of too little stomach acid rather than too much.

That may sound insane but here's the thing. Lack of hydrochloric acid is much more common than making too much. So why does it burn? It sure feels like acid. Right? Well it is. It's just an acid produced by food rotting in the stomach due to lack of digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid. It's a bi-product of putrefication. And the normal chain of events is for the food to leave the stomach and flow downward into the small intestine. But it isn't designed to cope with food in this state it so basically it stays where it is and ends up moving in the other direction instead -- up the stomach and into the esophagus.

Too much stomach acid? Really? I mean, how is it that millions of people on PPIs are making too much HCl? Hyperchlorhydria or too much stomach acid is rather rare. If you're overeating, eating junk food or other food that is hard to digest, eating when stressed, living under stress, chances are much greater that you don't make enough hydrochloric acid or digestive enzymes and your symptoms stem from that. Take a look at some of the symptoms caused by low stomach acid."

  This is a toughie to answer. Most likely it's safe... the combination of the two is marketed under the brand name "Trenaxa MF". And assuming the same doctor prescribed both meds, and knows your medical history? Yeah, you should be okay.

OTOH if you got them from two different sources and aren't sure of safe dosages, call up your doc or local pharmacist. They'll be able to give you an answer for your specific case.

How long should i take zantac for acid reflux?
I suffer from acid reflux and to treat it i take maximum strength zantac 150 mg. I want to know how long i should be taking zantac and if it will eventually cure me of my acid reflux? Also because of the acid reflux my voice sounds very muffled and it makes it hard for people to understand me when i speak will my voice ever go back to normal or is the damage from the acid already done? I have been suffering from acid reflux since i was 18 and now i'm 27.

  Ryan:

I can't answer your question like a pro because I'm not a physician, but I do know that many reports say that that you shouldn't take acid reflux medication for longer than one or two months. But I had the same problem and took bottles and bottles of medication and although they helped some, I still had acid reflux at times. I'd be up at night trying to get relief. Right after a meal, I was suffering. I was miserable. Although this lasted for like 10 years, the last three was the worst and that's when I started prescription medications. Then I read about how most are only supposed to be prescribed for 2 weeks and thought, uh oh.

Because I hate taking medicine and because I thought the meds can't be that good for my system, plus, they barely helped, I started to look for a natural way to treat/cure my acid reflux. I tried one and it really worked. I haven't taken prescription meds for acid reflux in like 12 months! Plus, I only did the natural treatment for like 7 days and then as needed after that. In the last 8 months, I've used it maybe twice! It really worked for me. I'm 36 years old now. I know there are a lot of scammy stuff out there, but this one really and truly worked for me.

I don't know if your interested in approaching your acid reflux naturally, but if you are, I added a link to the website that tells about it. Plus, I added the link about zantac too.

Hope this helps and good luck man.

Can you recommend a good skin care product with AHAs in it &/or microdermabrasion?
Prefer these types of AHAs

Glycolic acid - from sugar cane juice, sugar beets, or unripe grapes. On product labels it may also be called hydroxyacetic acid, hydroxyethanoic acid, alpha hydroxyacetic acid, ammonium alpha hydroxyethanoate, or ammonium glycolate.
Lactic acid - from tomato juice or sour milk. Other names for lactic acid: 2-hydroxypropanoic acid, ammonium lactate.

  They are the same meds that were available only by prescription not long ago. Same strength, same everything. They work, but different things work for different people. A few, like nexium are still only available by prescription. Its has more to do with the newness of the drug than its effectiveness. So try them and see what works best for you. Non-prescription generics are the cheapest way to go so only get a prescription if none of those work for you.

Prilosec (omeprozole) worked for me, zantac (ranatidine) worked for my husband. Pepcid is another good one. If you want a prescription one, try protonix. Its super cheap and works very well.

How to tell if you have acid reflux disease?
I'm a firm believer that the world is over-prescribed. I think that pharmaceutical companies just want to give you a pill for everything under the sun. So with that in mind I never thought I would get acid reflux disease. I always thought that I could just live with general acid reflux, because so many people have in the past and they got along just fine.
So my question is: how can you tell if you have acid reflux? What are the symptoms and if I have it, how can I reduce it without medication.

Thanks in advance.

  You need to see a doc if you think you have it for a confirmed diagnosis and a cause. You may have a hiatal hernia causing it but you would never know if you don't see a doc. GERD is not something you can not treat as left unteated it can lead to esophogeal erosion which is serious. My dad never realized he had GERD and now has esophogeal erosion. See your doc if you think you have it.

Help with a biology question concerning antacids that reduce the amount of acid in a person's stomach?
As part of the digestive process, the human stomach produces hydrochloric acid, HCl.
Sometimes excess acid causes discomfort. In such a case, a person might take an antacid such as magnesium hydroxide, Mg (OH)2. Explain how this substance can reduce the amount of acid in the stomach.

please help: 10 pts to best answer.

  This is simple chemistry. The antacid only reduces the amount of acid in the stomach at the time it is taken. You see, acids are lower on the pH scale. So the lower the number is, the more acidic it is. Stomach acid, such as Hydrochloric acid is anywhere between 1-3. Well, an antacid is simply a basic substance, most of the times, it is magnesium. It's like a positive number and a negative number. They cancel each other out. In this case, the antacid just removes the excess acid by cancelling it, and it passes through the digestive system neutral. The rest of the acid stays in your stomach and is necessary for the digestion of the rest of the contents. They are then reabsorbed into the body by the small intestine, and recycled. You get it?

What are the complications from an ear infection?
I was diagnosed with otitis externa a week ago and had to go back to the doctor again since the ear drops didn't work, actually made it worse. To begin, my inner ear was EXTREMELY itchy so I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with otitis externa so she gave me ear drops, Neomycin and Polymyxin B Sulfates and Hydrocortisone, so I was like ok. She said if it doesn't work in four days than she would have to see me again. It didn't work it actually made it worse, still EXTREMELY itchy and now it is muffled and feels full. So, I went back and she looked at it at and she said she is going to give me a different ear drop, acetic acid otic solution 2%, and if that didn't work - improve in three days to call her to schedule an appointment for an ENT. So, I am on day 1 and it seems to be worse than the other medicine - now I can't hear and feels full. So, my question is if it doesn't improve what should I expect at the ENT's?

  It's itchy because it's healing. You have an outer ear infection, and they are much different than a middle ear infection (the more common "ear infection" people talk about). What you have is more commonly called swimmers ear.

The fullness could be to you also having a middle ear infection or from wax impaction. Just wait and see. It could be that you have a fungal infection or a bacterial infection that is resistant to the drugs your doctor gave you. An ENT is much more versed in the treatment of ear diseases and will probably clean your ear out and prescribe more drops for you. This will give them more direct contact with your ear instead of with wax or other debris.

  Phosphoric acid also known as orthophosphoric acid or phosphoric(V) acid, is a mineral (inorganic) acid having the chemical formula H3PO4. By contrast, orthophosphoric acid molecules can combine with themselves to form a variety of compounds referred to as phosphoric acids in a more general way. The term phosphoric acid can also refer to a chemical or reagent consisting of phosphoric acids, usually mostly orthophosphoric acid.

Phosphoric acid is used in dentistry and orthodontics as an etching solution, to clean and roughen the surfaces of teeth where dental appliances or fillings will be placed. Phosphoric acid is also an ingredient in over-the-counter anti-nausea medications that also contain high levels of sugar (glucose and fructose). It should not be used by diabetics without consultation with a doctor. This acid is also used in teeth whiteners to eliminate any plaque that may be on your teeth.

  Good question, I never knew this. Let me dig and see if I can find anything.

I found this

It probably doesn't hurt at all to take a caclium carbonate-based antacid or supplement with Adderall. It might be a good thing in the long run if you do drink a lot of phosphoric acid-based sodas.

Since it's possible to deplete your brain's dopamine/noradrenaline stores through stimulant use, increasing your phenylalanine or tyrosine intake may help your body keep up (Best choice: more good protein, less carbs; Second-best: supplements.) Or, you may actually do better at a lower dose after skipping a weekend (You won't get anything done, but stimulants are among the few meds that you can skip a day or two with no more ill effects than that.)

What happens if I take alkaselzer (without the aspirin, and with tartaric acid) right after taking a pill?
I took a press prescription pill which has no contraindications to taking it on an empty stomach nor taking nit with an antacid. I then took "sal de uvas" which is basically the hispanic equivalent of alkaselzer. It's supposed to neutralize acid and stop the discomfort caused by over consumption of food. I have gastritis, so sometimes my stomach hurts even when I don't eat because of the acid.

Anyhow, the ingredients are sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, and tartaric acid (if I translated correctly).

Is this going to dissolve the pill I just swallowed or otherwise render it ineffective?
That wasn't helpful at all. Are you mentally challenged? The idea here is to give people information they don't already have.

Can I take Calcium Citrate if I am intolerant to citric acid?
The girl who works in the vitamin department at the store where I bought my vitamins said that "citrate" in the Calcium Citrate just means that the calcium came from a plant source unlike Calcium Carbonate. She said that a citric acid "allergy" shouldn't be a problem. I looked it up, and citrate is the "salt or ester of citric acid". Will I have the problems taking it as I do when I eat something containing citric acid? Thanks!

You will be getting a heaping dose of citric acid if you take it, and YES you will react to it. I have known of other people who could not take it. Try some other form of calcium like calcium lactate.

Digestive Issue????????????
For about 7 months now I think that I may have had low stomach acid as a result of taking a two week dosage of Zantac 150. I am a 17 year old male going through puberty and I am stressed because I am concerned that the low stomach acid has affected my growth/puberty. Is it possible for low stomach acid to have an effect on growth or development because of the inability to digest proteins? Could it have decreased my testosterone levels or raised my estrogen levels? I need as much info as possible on the concern of whether this could have had any type of effect on growth/development/puberty. I have not been formally diagnosed by a gastroenterologist on have low stomach acid, but I am going to one tomorrow. It seems that I have had a lot of the symptoms of low stomach acid, and it seemed that the Betaine Hydrochloride Capsules have helped. All information is appreciated thank you!

May have gotten phosphoric acid in my ear?
I am somewhat worried that I got trace amounts of Phosporic Acid in my ear during a chem lab today involving matchbooks and phosphorescence (I may have accidentally rubbed my ear a little) no idea if I am imagining things or not. Would it make sense to put together a solution of Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) and pour that in my ear to neutralize any potential acid. My ear is starting to hurt as if it was mildly burned, not enough that I need a hospital or anything but still...

What are the symptoms of acid reflux and How can you tell if you have it?
Lately my throat has felt like its burning and acid-y. It also feels like I have to burp after I eat. Are these symptoms of acid reflux?

  Patients with acid reflux often report suffering from nausea. In fact, nausea as a result of acid reflux is so common that when a patient experiences nausea with no apparent cause, a doctor usually suspects acid reflux as the culprit.

Equally as common as nausea occurring from acid reflux is regurgitation. Regurgitation occurs when refluxed liquid actually backs up into the mouth. Sometimes, this liquid can contain food. When a patient regurgitates, they often experience a burning sensation as refluxed liquid and food bypass the UES (upper esophageal sphincter) and make their way into the mouth. This burning is often accompanied by an awful, acidic taste. If a patient continues to experience regurgitation, it can actually cause damage to their teeth as the acidic substance erodes the enamel that encases each tooth.

Probably the most common reported complaint of acid reflux patients is the presence of heartburn. This is usually characterized as a searing pain in the chest. It can either begin in your upper abdomen or actually travel up to your neck. For some patients, this can be a cause for alarm. In fact, many people have mistaken painful acid reflux for a heart attack. Heartburn is especially prevalent after eating meals. Although heartburn usually goes away, the bad news is that it is usually a lifelong problem that will eventually return.

Hope this helps...
