Walking into the skin care aisle at the pharmacy, stepping up to a counter at a department store, or stopping by a cosmetics shop can be an overwhelming experience. Everywhere you look, you see products touting the ideal skin care ingredient. Who knew buying a moisturizer could be so difficult? Lately, the coverage of “clean” cosmetics is everywhere — on national television and in best-selling books. It’s clear that clean is the newest beauty trend. But what is the clean cosmetics movement, and does the science support it? Regulatory oversight of cosmetics: A brief history The clean cosmetics moveme...
Publication date: March 2019Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, Volume 7, Issue 3Author(s): Heather Lehman, Christopher GordonPrimary immune deficiency diseases characteristically present with recurrent, severe, or unusual infections. These infections may often involve the skin, with mucocutaneous candidal infections seen in a variety of different primary immune deficiencies. Primary immune deficiencies may also present with noninfectious cutaneous complications, of which eczema is the most common. In a patient with suspected primary immune deficiency, the presence of eczema or candidal ski...
ConclusionsScreening programs need to identify nurses who develop chlorhexidine sensitivity due to occupational exposure. Strategies to mitigate risk should provide alternatives for those with sensitization.
A subset of Atopic Dermatitis (AD) patients are susceptible to cutaneous viral infections, including eczema herpeticum (ADEH+). ADEH+ is associated with increased Staphylococcus aureus colonization and the skin microbiome may alter viral immune responses. The major objective of the current study was to compare the skin microbiome and virome of ADEH+, ADEH-, and nonatopic (NA) participants.
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, recurrent, inflammatory disease, characterized by intense itching and eczema. Severe patients may need immunosuppressive and immunobiological therapies to reach control.
To evaluate the hypothesis that washing with water alone is not inferior to washing with soap as treatment for eczema in children with atopic dermatitis (AD) in fall-winter.
Atopic dermatitis (AD) affects 20% of children and is characterized by a defective skin barrier and type 2 immunity. We found AD patients with eczema herpeticum or S. aureus colonization have barrier defects and are more Th2-polarized. Therefore, we investigated the importance of AD inflammation or barrier disruption on epidermal infectivity of vaccinia (VV) – the virus used to vaccinate against smallpox.
Eczema herpeticum (EH) may lead to invasive infections including HSV viremia and meningitis. However, the risk factor(s) for these infections are not known. Previous studies indicate that atopic dermatitis (AD) patients with high IgE levels are at risk for EH. In addition, EH children who require hospitalization tend to be younger males. Our goal is to identify risk factor(s) that may be associated with HSV viremia among hospitalized children with EH.
Family history of allergy and asthma and early onset of eczema are known risk factors for early life sensitization. Whether these risk factors result in different sensitization patterns is unknown.
