What Can You Do To Prevent Tinea Infections and Why?
Discussion Superficial fungal infections are very common. “Dermatophytes are molds that can invade the stratum corneum of the skin or other keratinized tissues derived from the epidermis, such as hair and nails. Organisms most commonly affect the scalp, feet, groin and nails.” Dermatophytes can be anthropophilic (human to human transmission), zoophilic (animal to human transmission) or geophilic (fomite to human transmission). Zoophilic dermatophytes are usually uncommon sources of human infection. Microsporum canis is the most common zoophilic dermatophyte and it can infect humans with close contact but this...

Flu Shot More Effective Than Nasal Vaccine For Kids, Study Finds
By Jacqueline Howard, CNN (CNN) — When it comes to vaccinating yourself — or your kids — against the flu, there are two options in the United States: a traditional shot or a nasal spray. Yet among children, the nasal spray appeared to have reduced effectiveness against the flu, compared with the shot, in past flu seasons, according to a study published in the journal Pediatrics on Monday. That finding, which involved analyzing data from several previous studies, seems to align with existing research. “We were able to better describe vaccine effectiveness in age groups that the individual s...
