6 Effective Ways to reduce the wrinkles Warts – Cauliflower-like Skin Inflammation

Cauliflower like Skin Inflammation

Warts are small, rough patches on the skin (resembling cauliflowers) that are caused due to the human papillomavirus (hpv- a dna virus that can infect humans). In this condition, only the topmost layer of your skin gets infected and acquires a rough texture. Warts are not fatal (they do not cause cancer), but they are contagious in nature and do not vanish easily.

Read on to find the most effective ways to reduce warts.

1. Over-the-counter wart removers
Over-the-counter wart treatments containing salicylic acid (a type of fungicide) as an active ingredient are commonly used for effective removal of warts. These medications generally eliminate warts by removing the topmost layer of the skin, following the peel-off process.

2. Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy, also known as freezing therapy, is generally performed by a dermatologist and consists of the use of liquid nitrogen for freezing the warts. The application of the chemical results in the formation of a blister around the warts, which shed off after about a week. It takes almost 3 to 4 weeks to have completely wart-free skin. This method proves to be more effective when used with salicylic acid-based wart removers.

3. Laser treatment
Another form of wart removal is pulsed-dye laser treatment. An ablative co2 laser acts by cutting and burning the wart. In this type of treatment the affected blood vessels are burnt, leading to the death of the infected tissue, following which the wart too disappears. However, this method is not commonly used if other treatment methods tend to work as it is painful and may leave behind scars.

4. Vaccine
Sometimes your dermatologist may recommend the use of human papillomavirus (hpv) vaccine to successfully eliminate warts.

5. Immunosuppressive Drugs
In this type of treatment each wart is injected with a shot of immunosuppressive drugs, a medicine that fights cancer. However, this treatment is not preferred generally as it may be painful and comes with side effects like nail loss if the wart is present on the finger.

6. Immune therapy
When warts refuse to vanish after the use of all common treatments, this method is put into use. This type of treatment involves the use of medications or solutions, which strengthens your immune system so that it can repel warts. In this case your warts may be injected with an antigen or a solution or cream may be applied on them.

Triggers for Acne

Triggers for Acne

Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder which is prevalent in both males and females. When the sebaceous glands present on skin produce excessive sebum, the hair follicles present on skin get clogged leading to the formation of acne.

Acne can be triggered by a number of factors. Here are some of the common triggers for acne:

1. Genetics: If one or both parents have acne, their children have high chances of suffering from it as well. Genes influence the sensitivity of your skin towards hormones such as androgens and progesterone that trigger acne. They also influence the production of anti inflammatory chemicals in the skin and skin’s response to bacteria.

2. Stress: The severity of acne can be correlated to the levels of stress a person is facing. While scientists are yet to figure the exact relationship between stress and acne; it is known that the cells that produce sebum or oil also act as stress receptors. Studies suggest that when a person is under stress, these cells produce excessive sebum that clogs pores on the skin leading to pimples.

3. Hormones: Hormones play an important role in skin health especially when it comes to women. Androgens or the male hormones present in both men and women, trigger acne by over stimulating the oil glands. Women may also see an increase in pimples during menstruation. This is due to the fluctuating levels of progesterone that stimulate the production of sebum.

4. Medication: Acne is one of the side effects to a few types of medication such as corticosteroids and anticonvulsants. However, this is not seen very often. On the other hand, drugs that contain hormones such as androgenic steroids almost always cause an acne breakout. Treatment for acne depends on the severity of the condition and its persistence. Mild cases can be easily treated with over the counter medication, but if your acne is severe and not affected by these medications, it best to consult a dermatologist.

How Does Laser Photofacial Works?

An intense pulsed light (IPL) is beamed at the skin in controlled broad spectrum light waves that are aimed at either the hemoglobin or the melanin and penetrate deep into the skin.

Types Of Burns That You Should Know About

types-of-burns-that-you-should-know-about-skinologyBurns are common injuries faced by almost everyone at some point of their life. Most burns are recoverable without serious health consequences depending on the degree of injury. However, some burns can be more dangerous as they might lead to excess damage of the skin cells. Such cases would require immediate emergency medical care to prevent further complications that might lead to an excessive damage of the body part or death.

So what are the degrees of burn and what to do when you have them?

First Degree: Skin turns red without blisters.

First degree burns affect the outermost layer of the skin and cause negligible damage to the skin. They can normally be treated under minimal home care such as applying cold water.

Second Degree: Skin thickens along with blisters.

They are more serious than first degrees. Some blisters might pop, giving the skin a wet appearance. When you do experience a second degree burn, you immediately put the affected skin under cold water for 10-15 minutes.

Third Degree: Skin thickens throughout the damaged part with a white leathery appearance. Third degree burns can be extremely serious and therefore it is advised never to self-treat cases of third degree burns. Call or visit a doctor immediately.

Fourth Degree: An extension of the third degree along with the injury reaching up to the tendons and bones. Emergency medical supervision is essential for fourth degree burns.

Causes of Burns: There can be several causes of burn injuries rather than just touching hot objects accidentally. Such causes can be classified as under-

A. Thermal Burns: Results from explosions, hot liquids, flame or contact with hot materials like coal or glass.

B. Chemical Burns: Results from strongly acidic or alkaline chemicals.

C. Electrical Burns: Results from electricity such as electric wires, electric meters, etc.

D. Radiological Burns: Results from radiation.

Overall Prevention of Burns – The best method of fighting burns is to stop them from occurring. Certain jobs can put you at greater risks of burns. Nevertheless, it is always better to take preventive care to avoid them. Preventive care includes the following:

• Keep children away from kitchen

• Install fire extinguisher in or near kitchen or near vulnerable areas in workplace.

• Replace smoke detectors on time

• Cover electric outlets

• Discard electric cords with exposed wires

• Wear gloves while handling chemicals.

Treating An Abscess

treating-an-abscess-skinology

An abscess is a tender, swollen area within the body tissue that contains pus and debris. Pus is a thick fluid comprising of white blood cells, bacteria and dead tissue. It is painful to touch and can appear anywhere in your body such as your groin, your armpits (axillae), around your tooth (dental abscess), anus and vagina (Bartholin gland abscess) or at the base of your spine (pilonidal abscess).

There are three different ways to treat an abscess depending upon the size and type of abscess. Sometimes, skin abscesses can get better and drain naturally without medical treatment through self-care measures such as hot compresses for half an hour, four times a day. The three ways to remove abscesses thought medical treatment are-

1. Antibiotics- An abscess is caused by staph bacteria that is unaffected by most antibiotics. Initially, prescribed antibiotics can only cure common infections since the bacteria are not identified. However, once the identification from a pus sample is done, the antibiotics prescribed are for a more focused type of bacteria. However, sometimes antibiotics are not enough to clear skin abscesses completely and they may keep growing or reoccur.

2. Incision and Drainage– A small operation needs to be carried out by the doctor during the incision and drainage treatment. Local anaesthesia is administered to the patient to numb the area around the abscess. Firstly the doctor cuts the abscess, draining out the pus. The pus may be used for testing. Following this, the wound is cleaned by a sterile saline solution and is then covered in wound dressing, allowing any newly formed pus to drain away.

3. Surgery– You may also need to undergo surgery if the drainage treatment has not been able to remove all the pus. The type of surgery, however, depends upon the size and location of the abscess and may require creation of a bigger incision in your body to wash the pus out completely.
