For spider monkeys, social grooming comes with a cost
Social grooming, or helping others to stay clean and free of lice and other ecto-parasites, has long been associated with hygiene and good health in wild primates. In the process of picking out ecto-parasites, however, the groomers may be picking up internal ones, a new study finds. The results of the study on critically endangered brown spider monkeys show that physical contact is associated with the spread of several common gastrointestinal parasites.

Kids With Lice Shouldn’t Miss School, Says American Academy Of Pediatrics
BOSTON (CBS) – A leading group of pediatricians is issuing new guidelines on the treatment and management of head lice. Lice do not carry disease and aren’t dangerous. However, most schools require that kids be free of lice and free of nits (lice eggs) before returning to class. Now the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is saying children should not miss school just because they have lice, pointing to the fact that lice usually don’t spread between kids simply because they’re in the same classroom. That’s because lice don’t jump, they crawl, so it really takes head-to-head contact to ...

Lice Shouldn't Keep Kids From School, Doctors Say
By: Rachael Rettner Published: 04/27/2015 04:30 AM EDT on LiveScience Head lice are annoying, but they don't actually make people sick, and children with the condition should not be kept away from school, according to new guidelines from a leading group of pediatricians. The guidelines, from the American Academy of Pediatrics, say that although head lice can cause itching, they are not known to spread disease, and the insects are not very likely to spread from one child to another within a classroom. Rather, it is usually direct head-to-head contact that spreads lice. For this reason, "no healthy child should be ex...

What is Jacquet Diaper Dermatitis?
Discussion The differential diagnosis of diaper dermatitis is usually fairly easy with irritant, fungal and bacterial causes being the most common. These are usually easily treated with resolution. When it is not improving then the differential must be expanded and other disease processes must be considered. These again usually include problems that are relatively easily treated such as scabies, lice or tinea. Other much less likely conditions in this age group would be syphilis or granuloma inguinale. Other signs or symptoms need to also be considered as Crohn’s disease, histocytosis or acrodermatitis enteropathica ...

Head lice: What parents need to know
Earlier this year, a Springfield toddler suffocated as her family attempted a home treatment for head lice. The case is a tragic reminder that anyone can get lice, no matter your income, the way you clean your home or how many pets you own. But there are recommended ways to treat an infestation. Are there natural or home remedies that work? There are some who claim that mayonnaise or petroleum jelly can be used to coat the head and smother the lice. This has not been proven effective, and even the most well-behaved of young children will not sit with goop on their heads for the recommended 20 hours while wearing a shower c...

The Bald and the Beautiful: Staying True to Yourself During Breast Cancer and Chemotherapy

Her message is one of hope and strength as she battles an aggressive form of breast cancer. Now I would like to see us take this a step further. Let's make it acceptable (perhaps even sexy, think Bruce Willis?) for women to be bald without the need for explanation. When I was diagnosed a few months ago with the same breast cancer that Lunden is facing, I was told repeatedly that if I didn't want to wear a wig, a bright scarf was a lovely alternative.
