FDA Warning About Products That May be Harmful to Teens Health
Teens Beware! There are products sold on the Internet and on EBay to treat herpes and AIDS and to prevent sexually transmitted diseases that do not work and may harm you! The FDA says there are no natural products proven to treat oral or genital herpes, genital warts, HPV or HIV.
A word of advice, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. And if in doubt, if it sounds shady or suspicious, ask your doctor, or a trained health care professional that you trust.
The following products have all been removed from the market by the FDA:
- Safe Lips by Tetrasol
- Aviralex topical solution
- Oxi-MED cream
- Imulux Lamps Device
- Qina Device
- SlicPlus Lubricant
