Is It A Poison Ivy Rash? How To Tell — And How To Treat It
By Jessica Migala You’ve probably feared a run-in with poison ivy since you were a kid. Even brushing up against the pointy leaves is risky, says Temitayo A. Ogunleye, MD, assistant professor of dermatology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The climbing plant contains an irritating resin, called urushiol, that can transfer to your skin via touch, she explains. You might also be exposed to the oily liquid by a pet who picks up the resin on his fur and then passes it along to you. You can even inhale urushiol if, say, you mow over a large patch of poison ivy in your yard,&n...

The researchers confirmed that the hormone progesterone present in the female reproductive tract seems to be needed to activate sperm and make them able to fertilise an egg. The also found that two plant compounds, pristimerin and lupeol, were able to block the sites on the sperm that are activated by progesterone. This means these two compounds could have a potential contraceptive action. But it's far too early to say whether new contraceptiv...

How is Swimmer ’ s Itch Diagnosed?
Discussion Cercarial Dermatitis (CD) is known by many names throughout the world, but is commonly known as swimmer’s itch. It is a water-borne, non-communicable infectious disease that is caused by the larval stage (cercariae) of parasitic schistosomatid flukes.
