Study Uses Diuretic To Treat Acne In Women


Researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine found that a diuretic medication may help treat acne for women. Their study focused on, Spironolactone, to see if the diuretic could be used as an alternative for antibiotic treatment. Branded under the names Aldactone and CaroSpir, the diuretic is approved to treat high blood pressure, heart failure and conditions that cause people to retain fluid. The study's lead author stated that a safe alternative to oral antibiotics could be beneficial for treating acne, so patients don't develop antibiotic resistance over time. But Spironolactone blocks the effects of male hormones, so it can only treat acne in women.

  • New Study Finds Cannabis Could Improve Women's Sex Lives

    Cannabis could potentially make sex more satisfying for women, according to a new study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. For the study, researchers surveyed 373 women about whether they used cannabis before sex, says Business Insider. Of the 127 women who said yes, 87 reported that sex was more pleasurable than sex without marijuana use beforehand. The researchers also found that women who used marijuana before sex were about two times more likely to have satisfying orgasms. Researchers said these results could be due to the substance's ability to reduce stress and anxiety.
