Every 15 Minutes, Someone In The US Dies Of A Drug-Resistant Superbug
(CNN) — Every 15 minutes, someone in the United States dies of a superbug that has learned to outsmart even our most sophisticated antibiotics, according to a new report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s about 35,000 deaths each year from drug-resistant infections, according to the landmark report. The report places five drug-resistant superbugs on the CDC’s “urgent threat” list — two more germs than were on the CDC’s list in 2013, the last time the agency issued a report on antibiotic resistance. Genetic research shows germs have become especially adep...

What Are Options for Acne Treatment?
Discussion Acne vulgaris or acne is a problem of the pilosebaceous follicle. It occurs most prominently where sebaceous glands are abundant especially the face, neck, and upper back. Sebum production increases because of androgens. Keratin and sebum clog the pores of the pilosebaceous unit causing hyperkeratosis (clogged pilosebaceous unit = clogged pores = comedomes). Propionibacterium acnes, a gram-negative anaerobe, multiplies in the sebaceous unit causing an inflammatory reaction resulting in moderate or severe acne. Skin lesions include: Comedomal acne has comedomes White heads = closed comedomes Black heads = open...

Malaria-Like Parasite From Ticks Spreading To U.K. Through Dogs
Mepron, a thick liquid antimicrobial drug used to treat Babesia and malaria, as well as a fungal infection called Pneumocystitis carinii. In 2011, the United Kingdom stopped requiring that dogs brought into the country be inspected for ticks. Earlier this year, several dogs tested positive for babesia, a malaria-like disease transmitted to ticks that previously had only been found in foreign. These dogs had never left the U.K. While babesiosis is a new worry to U.K. dog owners, it's been a threat to human beings for years -- it just hasn't become a health-scare-of-the-week like Zika, West Nile, avian and swine flu.

BOSTON (CBS) – Claire Branman is among the millions of Americans who think they have a penicillin allergy. It’s something that’s been listed on her medical records since she was a kid, “because my mom told me when I was a baby I had an allergic reaction,” she told WBZ-TV. At 26 years old, Claire is now getting an allergy test to find out for sure. And here’s why: “Ten-to-fifteen percent of the U.S. population thinks that they are allergic to penicillin.
