Make the Diagnosis: College Girl ?s Scaly Skin Scare

(MedPage Today) -- Case Findings: An 18-year-old international college student went to the campus health clinic a few weeks after arriving from India. Before she left home, she had noticed some small brown macules that were widespread, primarily on her trunk. They were very itchy, but leaving the heat of India had helped and otherwise they weren't a problem. She hadn't had time to get to a doctor for a diagnosis while she was preparing to leave for college.

What Are the Health Needs of Incarcerated Youth?

Discussion In the US during 2011, ~60,000 youth were incarcerated at some time in a correctional facility. Boys are detained more than girls (86% vs 14% respectively in the US, 95% male in the United Kingdom in 2014) but girls have more health issues. There are racial and ethnic differences with 38-40% of detainees being black, 23% being Hispanic/Latino and 32% being white, and 5% other. For detained youth, 5% are for violent crimes, 22% for non-violent property crimes and the majority of the rest are for non-violent offices such as substance use. The average length of detainment is 3-4 months and unfortunately the rates of recidivism are higher for youth than for adults; for youth, 75% are rearrested within 3 years. Detained youth have a higher risk of mortality at 4x the general populati...

This weekend

Americans love to celebrate weekends at the beach or by the pool. If that’s your plan, I hope your day includes a dose of sunshine. However, I have an important message before you cover yourself in sunscreen. Don’t do it! If you’re shaking your head in disbelief, I get it… What I just said goes against everything you’ve heard for the last 40 years or so from doctors, dermatologists and the mainstream media. But I’ve been telling my patients for decades that covering themselves in commercial sunscreen is bad advice.   In fact, since the start of the media campaign to push sunscreen started, the rate of deadly melanoma cases has risen dramatically. If the numbers continue to increase at the current pace, over 100,000 new cases will be diagnosed by 20...

The Sweet Way to Heal Your Wounds

We enjoy outdoor activities. My family will be coming over this year and I will fire up the grill for a delicious BBQ grass-fed beef. We’ll play games like badminton and horseshoes. Now while these games can be fun, they can lead to cuts and bruises. I want to aim you with an unconventional solution for those wounds.  For years now, sugar’s been a dirty word. It’s been blamed for everything from obesity, heart disease and diabetes to tooth decay and acne. But there’s something they don’t know.  Sugar’s better for you than all those artificial sweeteners and substitutes out there today? especially the ones you’ll find in so-called “diet” products. In one study of nearly 2,600 people, those who drank diet sodas had a 47% higher body...
