Direct infant UV light exposure is associated with eczema and immune development: A Critical Appraisal.

CONCLUSIONS: Vitamin D supplementation in high-risk infants increased Vitamin D levels but did not reduce eczema. Exploratory post-hoc analyses in a non-randomised subset showed an association between greater direct UV light exposure and reduction of eczema. The authors claim that "our findings indicate that UV light exposure appears more beneficial than vitamin D supplementation as an allergy prevention strategy in early life".

In conclusion, young adults with history of allergies were more likely to enter exposed jobs, suggesting no avoidance of potentially hazardous exposures. Improved counselling against high risk jobs may be needed for young adults with these conditions.

AbstractBackgroundEvidence suggests that prenatal exposure ton-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA) reduces the incidence of allergic disease in children. LCPUFAs are produced from dietary precursors catalyzed by desaturases and elongases encoded by theFADS1/2 andELOVL5 genes. DNA methylation regulates gene activity and fatty acid supplementation could alter DNA methylation (DNA-M) at these genes. We investigated whether DNA-M and expression of theFADS1/2 andELOVL5 genes were associated with allergy in children and gestational fish intake. We studied 170 participants from the Isle of Wight 3rd Generation Cohor...

ConclusionAllergic eczema/asthma in early life, being born during the autumn/winter, having multiple allergic symptoms and two allergic parents were all strong predictors for having allergic diseases at 5 and 10 years of age. However, the allergic march seems to be independent of heredity, as IgE ‐mediated allergies follow the same trajectories in children with and without allergic heredity.

Each year 2-3 million non-melanoma and 132,000 melanoma skin cancers occur globally according to statistics from the WHO. Thus, every tool has to be deployed for early detection and intervention. As smartphone penetration already reached the quarter of the Earth’s population, smartphone apps seem to be a viable way to go against skin conditions. Here, we collected the top dermatology apps to aid your digital skin care. As smartphones take over the world, dermatology apps multiply As technology continues to advance, so too does its accessibility to the general population. In 2013, only 56 percent of Americans ow...

We describe the case of a young boy affected by coeliac disease who, after an occasional unexpected ingestion of gluten, experienced a complete anaphylactic reaction characterized by urticarial, labial angioedema, wheezing, and hypotension. To better investigate the state of allergic sensitization to wheat in our patient, we then performed the component resolved diagnosis, which showed Tri a19 2 kU/l and Tri a14 0.3 kU/l. These results demonstrated the association of IgE-mediated allergy to wheat and coeliac disease. The natural course of specific IgE in allergic patients who are on a food-free diet needs fur...

Eczema, atopic dermatitis, urticaria, and other inflammatory allergic cutaneous reactions cause itch. Itch often makes the patients scratch their skin, and persistent scratching can aggravate dermal conditions. Itch can even cause emotional disturbance and sleep loss. The management of itch is therefore a key component of the clinical treatment of patients with allergies.
