Can you get herpes and other skin diseases from public restrooms?


No. Genital herpes and other STDs are almost ALWAYS spread by sex or some sort of sexual contact. It can NOT be spread by using a toilet seat after someone, using a shower or tub after them, using a chair after them, a pool, jacuzzi, door knob, etc. You need DIRECT skin to skin contact.

I have had genital herpes and HPV for over 6 years now. I lived with my parents and brothers most of those 6 years (I contracted both viruses when I was 17). NONE of my family members ever got herpes or HPV from me by using something after me like the toilet or shower. I've also had several other family members and boyfriends (now ex's) use the bathroom after me and NONE of them ever contracted either virus. They are just not spread that way.

Crabs, or pubic lice, may be transmitted an infested toilet seat. However, lice cannot survive away from the human body for longer than 24 hours. So contracting pubic lice from a toilet seat is possible, but it's unlikely.

Good luck!  (+ info)

Is amoxicillin good a treating acne or skin diseases?


Is it similar to pennacillin because when I took that I had no acne...
----------

I have never heard of anyone using penicilin to treat acne. They are similar, both beta lactams, but taking a p.o. beta lactam for the purpose of acne has risks, including the development of antibiotic resistant bacterial infections in the GI tract as well as side effects such as diarrhea.  (+ info)

what kind of skin diseases do i have?


i have this rushes on both of my legs and it spreads so quickly sometimes its itchy i am under medication from yesterday and it look like the cream i was prescribe is not working?
----------

It will work as long as you don't expose the infected area to oxygen or the air, my advice would be to keep the infected area covered as possible for fast healing, do not itch as it'll make it a bacteria inhabiting ground for new ones to enter your body, don't want that now do we, just keep applying cream to the irritated area and keep it covered.  (+ info)

What genetic diseases/skin conditions occur in association with keratosis pilaris?


Please... anyone with a REAL answer?
----------

KP is a genetic skin disorder and it is hereditary. There have been suggestions made that KP might be linked with a deficiency in Vitamin A.
"Follicular keratosis refers to orthokeratosis involving the follicular ostium and infundibulum. It may be isolated [as in standard keratosis pilaris (KP)] or associated with other pathologic processes, including follicular inflammation, atrophy, scarring, and alopecia [keratosis pilaris atrophicans (KPA)]. These are reaction patterns that occur alone or as part of a wide variety of syndromes"
The disorder may be associated with eczema (dermatitis).  (+ info)
