The Solution for Skin Ailments Could Be Right Under Your Nose
While bacteria has long been associated with disorders like acne and eczema, scientists are now fighting back with friendly members of the skin ’ s microbiome.
The Acne Core Outcomes Research Network (ACORN) is an international group of clinicians, researchers, statisticians, patients, journal editors and industry investigators whose objective is to develop a core outcome set for use in acne clinical trials. Following the methodologies outlined by the Harmonizing Outcome Measures in Eczema (HOME) group which included 3 rounds of a Delphi exercise, in 2017 ACORN identified the following core outcome domains: satisfaction with appearance; long-term control of acne, extent of scars and dark marks, satisfaction with treatment received, signs and symptoms of acne, and health-related quality of life.
ConclusionsUltimately, in the age of personalized medicine, the integration of cutaneous microbiome signatures and comprehensive disease and drug response endotypes will herald a novel approach in the clinical management of chronic multisystem inflammatory diseases.
Conclusions This study characterizes the current state of ambulatory dermatologic care in Taiwan. The results raise concerns about the misuse of very potent glucocorticoids and combined glucocorticoid/antifungal preparations in dermatologic practices.
Conclusion: This study provides indirect evidence for a link between acne vulgaris and air pollution.Skin Pharmacol Physiol 2018;31:107-113
DRY SKIN on the face is a problem often experienced during winter. However, along with eczema, psoriasis and acne it is one of ten skin conditions men and women are risking scarring by using make-up.
AbstractPostinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is a reactive hypermelanosis that develops following cutaneous inflammation. Common causes of PIH include intrinsic skin conditions (e.g., acne and eczema) as well as external insults to the skin, such as burn injuries and dermatologic procedures. PIH more commonly occurs in individuals with darker skin, for whom it is often a source of significant psychological distress. Several therapeutic modalities are available for the treatment of PIH, including topical agents, chemical peels, and energy-based devices. We review the epidemiology, clinical presentation, pathogenesis, and treatment of PIH.
ACNE and eczema are two common skin conditions whose symptoms can be exacerbated during winter. Here are six ways to ease them.
Contributor : Thomas M BaderSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensThe purpose of the present study was to establish at the molecular level, a genetic profile of the biological activity of essential sandalwood oil from Santalum album, produced under standardized conditions. The model system under investigation is based on living human skin explants. This protocol permits to compare ex vivo the effects of SO at the histological level as well as the changes of gene expression as a function of SO concentration and duration of treatment.In the present report, Sandalwood oil (S. album) was applied to ...
