Abstract Topical corticosteroids are widely used to treat inflammatory or pruritic skin conditions. The impact of systemic absorption of topical corticosteroids on the risk of hyperglycemia, and subsequent type 2 diabetes is unclear. Andersen et al. aimed to determine if topical corticosteroid use for psoriasis and eczema,1 which affect 2-3% and 2-8% of adults worldwide, respectively, is associated with an increased risk of newly-diagnosed type 2 diabetes.2,3.

Doctors have all kinds of names for this condition, including psoriasis, dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema,  dandruff, and, when it gets into the eye lashes, blepharitis.The doctor may or may not tell you that the cause of these skin and eyebrow problems is often (1) a bacterial infection--because this makes us feel unclean and germy, or (2) an infection by Demodex folliculorum, a microscopic mite that lives in the hair follicles of the eyebrow and eats dead skin.

CONCLUSIONS: We found a modest increase in risk of atopic eczema within three years following bereavement, which peaked in the first three months. Acute stress may play a role in triggering onset of new atopic eczema or relapse of atopic eczema previously in remission. We observed no evidence for increased long-term risk of psoriasis and atopic eczema following bereavement. PMID: 31782133 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Dermatologic immune-related adverse events (IRaes) are among the most frequent toxicities reported with anti –programmed cell death (PD)-1 or anti–programmed cell death ligand (PD-L1) therapies, affecting up to 40% of treated patients [1,2]. They have been associated with a variety of dermatologic manifestations including eczema-like rash, pruritus, lichenoid reactions, induction or reactivation of pre existing psoriasis, vitiligo and granulomatous reactions [3]. They may also induce or reactivate autoimmune skin diseases [4].
