Bee Propolis Could This Be Cure For Baldness Insects May Have Answer To Hair Growth Problem
A compound bees use to repair their hives can boost hair growth in a buzzing discovery for bald people. The natural sealant called propolis was tested on mice that had been shaved or waxed, and experts today revealed those that had the treatment regrew their fur faster than those that did not. Bees use the substance to seal small gaps in their hives, but now the scientists say the find could help develop new hair loss therapies. The experts headed by Dr Ken Kobayashi, of Hokkaido University in Japan said after.
Getting a Strep Test
Hi. I'm Dr. Kate. If you have a really sore throat, your doctor might order a strep test, also called a throat culture. If strep bacteria are causing your sore throat, you'll need special medicine to get better. Here's what happens. A doctor or a nurse asks you to open your mouth wide and say, ahhh. Ahhh. Next, with a long cotton swab, she gently rubs around the back of your throat. The swab is soft. This test might make you cough or gag a little, which is perfectly normal. It only lasts a few seconds.
What are Food Allergies HealthiNation
Food allergies happen when your body mistakenly thinks that the food you just ate is dangerous. Just a small amount of a particular food can trigger the body's immune system to develop an allergic reaction. These reactions can range from simple hives on the skin to more serious complications including anaphylaxis, which is a whole body reaction that can be fatal. So, they can be serious. A food allergy can develop immediately after a food is eaten or even a few hours later. The symptoms you should be watching out for are hives, which are small, itchy red bumps.
That look like wheels, or blotches on the skin. You may also have symptoms you'd see with asthma like wheezing, and coughing. Other symptoms could include diarrhea, vomiting, itching of the mouth and throat, swelling in the mouth and throat and abdominal pain. These symptoms can mean that you're allergic to certain foods, but some of them can also be caused by food intolerance. People who are lactose intolerant may feel sick after drinking milk, but they aren't allergic to milk. That's because the discomfort from food intolerance isn't caused by the immune system, so those aren't called allergies.
People most often have food allergies to nuts, dairy products, wheat, and certain fish. These are the most common because they contain certain proteins that in some people set off an allergic reaction. Those reactions start when a natural immune system antibody called immunoglobin E or IGE triggers the release of histamine and other chemicals. The chemical histamine causes allergy symptoms like hives and sneezing. You can visit an allergist to find out if you have food allergy. The physician will ask questions about your family history and the symptoms that you've been experiencing.
With certain foods. The doctor will test your skin with liquid extracts of different foods. They will be looking for any hives or rashes. You may also have a blood test to see if you carry any IGE antibodies to specific foods. To pin down problem foods, it's a good idea to keep a food diary detailing what you eat, when you eat it, and any symptoms that appear around that time. Elimination diets can also help diagnose a food allergy. These work by removing a suspected food from the diet to see if allergy symptoms clear up. If the symptoms do go away, the.
Next step would be to do a food challenge. This is done in a doctor's office. You will be given a sample of the food you may be allergic to. If there is a reaction with the suspected food, then the allergy is confirmed. Unfortunately, there is no cure for food allergies right now. And, while some kids may outgrow a food allergy, others who don't must carefully navigate menus and grocery aisles their whole lives. The good news is there are many ways for those with food allergies to eat well.
And incorporate all the nutrition they need in their diets. SHARON If you or someone in your family has a food allergy, it's something you need to think about at every meal. But, it doesn't mean the party's over. So, let's forget what mom says and start with dessert. I love ice cream, which is a dairy product. And, dairy products are some of the most common allergens. But, there are many milk options that don't come from animals, and they come in ice cream products, too! This soy ice cream is just one example. Another thing to keep.
In mind with dessert, sorbet is dairy free, but some sherbets are made with milk. And, if you really have a sweet tooth, try dark chocolate which is made without milk. For alternatives to animal milk, try soy, almond, and rice milks. It's also important to think about what nutrients you're losing when cutting out a certain food product. Fortunately, all of these milk alternatives have nearly the same amount of calcium as dairy milk. Almond milk is a great source of calcium, and soy rice milks are almost always fortified.
With calcium. Soy milk also comes with an additional punch of protein. So, you'll have a healthy start to your day by using any of these milks with your favorite lowsugar cereal. If someone in your family has a peanut allergy, it's important to pay close attention to the labels of what's in your pantry. Some people can have a peanut allergy so sensitive that even foods processed in a plant that handles peanuts can trigger a reaction. For more obvious problem foods, like peanut butter, it's easier than ever today to find alternatives.
Like almond, cashew, and even sunflower butter if you're allergic to all tree nuts. People with seafood allergies may need to stay away from just shell fish, or in some cases all varieties of fish. If you're extra sensitive to fish, be careful when eating out because the kitchen will often prepare dishes on the same surfaces that were used for fish dishes. Also, vitamins sometimes contain fish oils and other fish products, so make sure to read those labels. When cooking at home, substitute a lean meat like chicken in a fish dish. You'll be losing hearthealthy fats called omega3's and vitaminB by cutting.
Fish out of your diet, so grab these vitamin supplements so you're not missing out. A wheat, or gluten, allergy means that grains like barley, wheat, and oats are offlimits. So, for a recipe that calls for these, substitute with rice or corn. You'll need to be careful with Gluten. It can be hidden in many foods like soy sauce and salad dressings. I checked the labels at the supermarket and picked out this salad dressing which is glutenfree. More products are beginning to advertise with a glutenfree label to make it easier for.
DermTV How to Treat Under Breast Rashes Infections DermTV Epi 190
Music Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Rashes under the breast tend to occur if the skin of the lower part of the breast lies flat against the skin below the breast. That tends to happen at a certain time in life whether it's from age, gravity, from having had children or just from the way that you're built. Whether you know it or not, your skin perspires all the time but when skin lies flat against another layer of skin that perspiration or sweat can't evaporate and.
Moisture accumulates. When moisture accumulates in closed areas, like skin against skin, it promotes the growth of bacteria and other germs and that creates odors and that can lead to infections. The most common infections that occur in this context, on the under part of the breast, are yeast infections and bacterial infections. To help prevent this, very simply, after you shower treat this area with the same antiperspirant that you use under your arms. If that's not effective at sufficiently decreasing the sweating, then take a thin piece of cotton material and place that thin.
Piece of material under and in the fold below the breast on both sides to help absorb moisture. If you actually do develop a rash below your breast usually it manifests as itchy little red bumps with some oozing. Usually this is very uncomfortable. It's probably a yeast infection and the best way to treat it is with milk and water compresses and the instructions, for those is discussed in DermTV Episode 15. In addition, over the counter Mikonazol lotion applied very lightly two or three times a day, will often.

AntiInflammatories Ginger and Turmeric
Ginger and turmeric are powerful natural antiinflammatory agents and you want to find out how to get more of them into you. Ginger is relatively easy because we are familiar with that and not only can you add it as a spice to food and you can eat crystalized ginger as a snack. One of my favorite sweet things is eating dark chocolate with a minimum of 70 percent cocoa in it and some people find that too bitter, I can actually eat up to 85 percent chocolate but higher than that is too bitter for me, but sometimes if you eat chocolate.
With a piece of crystalized ginger, that is a very delicious combination. You can also take powered ginger in capsules and we recommend that to patients with inflammatory conditions. Turmeric is extremely interesting, it is really the hottest medicinal herb studied now and a very powerful antiinflammatory agent, anticancer agent, it looks as if it reduces risk of Alzheimer's disease probably because of its antiinflammatory effect. Indians eat turmeric at every meal and India has the lowest rate of Alzheimer's disease in the world and some people think that is due to the high concentration of turmeric there are some animal studies supporting.
That. That one we have more difficulty with, but the main way we get turmeric is in the form of America yellow mustard, which is mostly a turmeric preparation, and it has relatively little mustard in it. I used to think that was one of the worst things America gave the world along with our bread and beer, but it turns out it is one of the best turmeric preparations. Other than that, it's the main thing in curry powder and it makes curry yellow. You want to find out how to get more turmeric into you. One of the physicians in our program.
DermTV Preventing and Treating Foot Fungus DermTV Epi 268
Music Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. When people find out that they have a fungus infection on the bottom of their feet they act very surprised and shocked because they equate fungus infections, and especially on the bottom of the feet, with being dirty or not being clean and they insist that they have good hygiene and that they are clean. Well, the reality is that fungus infections on the bottom of the feet have nothing to do with how clean you are or your routines of hygiene.
And as a matter of fact, they're just a normal part of life and you can even consider them part of the food chain in this case, the fungus is the predator and you are the food. Consider these facts. Fungi are everywhere. They're in your house. They're in my house. They're in your office. They're in my office. They're everywhere. Fungi thrive on dead skin they do very well nutritionally when they eat dead skin. The bottom of your feet have a lot of dead skin. Fungi thrive in wet, moist, environments. When your feet.
Sweat, that's a wet, moist environment. Add all those facts up and it's not surprising that sweaty feet are an ideal environment and nutrient atmosphere for fungi to grow, thrive and infect. And that's why almost half of all adults have fungus infections on the bottom of their feet. So this is what you can do to try to decrease the chance of having a fungus infection on the bottom of your foot. First of all, exfoliate the bottom of your feet every day. Exfoliation removes dead skin. If there's less dead.
Skin, there's less nutrient material for the fungus to grow on. Powder your shoes or your socks every day to help absorb moisture to decrease the wetness in your shoes. If you sweat a lot, carry two or three extra changes of socks or stockings with you, again, to try to keep things dry. And try to avoid wearing footwear that makes you sweat a lot, like sneakers and boots. This is the bottom line, if you see flaking on the bottom of your feet or if you see little white scales or little white lines in the creases.
DermTV What is Eczema DermTV Epi 173
Music Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Today I'm going to explain what eczema is and in a subsequent episode we'll talk about how to treat eczema. The word eczema is a very, very confusing term and the reason that it is, is because on the one hand it refers to a very specific disease and on the other hand so many people use the word eczema improperly in referring to diseases and conditions that are either persistent or recurrent. Let's talk about the real word eczema. Eczema.
Refers to a disease called atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is a rash that tends to be hereditary and runs in families, it usually starts in infancy or early childhood and it's very often associated with two other diseases, with allergic rhinitis which is called hay fever and also with asthma and that association may not be in the same patient it may just be that all three, or some of those, run in the same family. Atopic dermatitis, again, usually starts in infancy and when it does, in an infant it's usually on an extensive surface like on the back of the arm or the.
Front of the leg or thigh and sometimes on the side of the neck. By early childhood it's changed by flexer surfaces, the front of the elbow, behind the knee and again, still on the sides of the neck. When you get the rash it's usually very, very itchy so it causes a lot of scratching and the skin turns red and there are a lot of bumps but that's the technical and proper term for the word eczema. But so many other people refer to so many other rashes that again are recurrent or persistent, with the word eczema and.
What they do is they take technical names and just add the word eczema after it. So dandruff is really called, seborrheic dermatitis but some people call that rash when it's on your face seborrheic eczema. There's a form of a rash that you get when there's just no oil in your skin, that's called asteatotic dermatitis. Asteatosis means a lack of oil, so asteatotic dermatitis is from no oil and you get a rash. But a lot of people call that asteatotic eczema. When people get chronic rashes on their hand, instead of.
Emergency Dog Health Care How to Treat Dog Insect Bites
Hi I'm Dr. Adrienne Mulligan of Camp Verde Veterinary Clinic in Arizona and I'm here today to talk to you about insects bites and what you could do at home on behalf of expertvillage. Insects bites and scorpions stings and spider bites and fly bites and things like that all happens on a daily bases and your pet would not necessarily have a problem with most of these. Unless they have a allergy to them many of these insects are not as toxic as people think they are. Black widow spiders probably not as bad in a dog as most people.
Fear although if they get enough of a bite in a small enough dog it could cause some neurologic problems so this are things that may need to see a vet as quickly as possible. The most common effect in a insect bite is going to be a swallowing, a swelling of a paw, redness of a skin, or it could be the face or anywhere that the dog has got bitten by the insect. You might see hives all over the body. Hives just like in people they are little bumps on they would raise the hair so you would notice these little bumps all.
Over your dog with hair raised. Redness along the ears and the eyes and swelling of the face. These are things that usually happen from a bug bite or a bee sting something that a dog is allergic to. So there are some things that you could do to help. Number one is very safe to give a dog your basic benadryl. Diphenhydramine is the generic name for it and you could get either one at your drug store. You usually give this at a milligram per pound. So if your dog ways 50 pounds he could have 50 milligrams. These come in 25 milligrams tablets. If you.
Have a little dog that ways 10 pounds you might want to get the liquid for children the plain benadryl and follow the direction on how many milligrams as in a teaspoon so you won't overdose them. Basically it is one milligrams per pound orally. Then you could apply ice or ice packs things that you keep in the freezer for muscle injures and you could wrap them with a towel. You could use baking soda if you see the wound to draw out in venom like a bee sting. The most important part is to get that benadryl into to them.
