If you or your child is suffering from an earache, avoid putting anything, such as your finger or a cotton swab, inside the ear. If the inside of the ear is dry, itchy or has wax buildup, a drop or two of olive oil can help soothe it and loosen excess wax. If you get your ears wet, be sure to dry them.

Dr. Ordon demonstrates why warts form and how to treat them.
A mammography is an X-ray examination of the breast. Dr. Lisa advises to avoid using powders, deodorants or lotions under your arms or on your breasts on the day of a mammogram, because they can appear on the X-ray as a calcification.
"Another really good tip is don't go when you're right on your period or right before your period, because if you've ever had your breasts smushed like a pancake, it'll hurt," Dr. Lisa adds. "Go right after your period."

From babies to adults, acne can be a problem for people of all ages. Sixty million Americans have active acne and 20 million have permanent acne scars. To prevent pesky pimples, it is important to keep your pores clean.
"It is a process of the pores getting clogged, bacteria growing in the pores, [and pores] getting inflamed," Dr. Ordon says. "Things you need to do are deep cleansing, using benzyl peroxide and using salicylic acid. For bad cases, you have to see your dermatologist, who may put you on antibiotics and maybe even Accutane. Laser treatments nowadays are another good option for people who have stubborn acne."
Dr. Ordon offers an additional acne treatment: pumpkin.
Mix 200 grams of pumpkin pulp with 1 tablespoon of non-fat sour cream and apply it to your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse with cool water. This will cleanse your face, open up your pores and give your skin a glow!
