Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Getting Botox In Your Groin

Most of us are familiar with botulinum toxin injections (commonly known by their brand names as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin) to erase facial wrinkles.  But Botox can also help people who suffer from excessive sweating, which is known as hyperhidrosis. In order to put a halt to sweating, it’s become increasingly more common to receive Botox injections in the armpits. And now, people are getting injections in their groin, as well.  HuffPost recently spoke with Dr. John H.Tu, M.D. from the University of Rochester Department of Dermatology and dermatologist for Dermatology Associates of Rochester. He filled us in on all the details. To stop sweating, Botox is injected into a patient’s groin crease.  “You have this sort of trough that runs from your hip to where your genitals are,” Dr. Tu said. “Basically it’s a crevice that tends to get trapped by the leg skin and the belly skin. It’s sort of the two diagonal sides of panties ― the diagonal panty line. This is where people tend to get a lot of moisture.” According to Allergan, the makers of Botox, the toxin injections work by blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. Sweating in this region can create a problem, especially if you’re overweight. “People who are overweight would have a little bit of an overhang of the lower abdomen,” Dr Tu said. “For people who are thin, it’s less of an issue beca...

Invasive fungal infections caused by Candida species affect approximately 700,000 people worldwide resulting in 300,000 deaths annually. Besides Candida albicans, other members of the genus have gained relevance in the last two decades, including C. parapsilosis whose incidence is particularly high amongst low birth weight neonates. To investigate the virulence properties of this pathogen several techniques have been developed for generating knock-out mutants, however, no target locus for knock-in approaches have been published so far. Here we report CpNEUT5L (N5L), an intergenic locus in C. parapsilosis, and introduce an ...

This study has revealed the intestinal and hepatopancreas mycobiota of L. vannamei and the effects of diseases and seasonal variation to the mycobiota. Our study provides important guidance for Pacific white shrimp farming and sheds further insight on the fungal microbiota. Introduction The digestive system hosts a large number of microorganisms dominated by bacteria, which constitute an enormous microbial ecosystem called the microbiota (O’Hara and Shanahan, 2006; Clemente et al., 2012). The microbiota has multiple functions, such as the maintenance of the functional stability and metabolic balance in the di...
