Organic products are being developed by the industry, and they will play an important part in long-term skincare. The Skin microbiome is one of the primary and important upcoming skincare regimens that will undoubtedly have a significant progression in the Indian beauty industry this year. Microbiomes are made up of trillions of microscopic bacteria that live on the surface of our skin. Though it may appear repulsive, both good and harmful bacteria play a crucial role in keeping our skin healthy, clear, and bright.

Dermatology Patients Willing to use Medical Cannabis Products

January 24, 2022 0 Comments

A national survey conducted by the George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) and University of Maryland researchers found that patients with different dermatologic conditions are willing to try medical cannabis products (MCPs) as potential treatments for their conditions.

“MCPs, which are cannabis or cannabis-derived products that contain tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and/or cannabidiol, known as CBD, are more available now than they ever have been,” explained lead author Samuel Yeroushalmi, a fourth-year MD student at GW SMHS. “However, data supporting use and information regarding product quality assurance is limited, particularly when it comes to dermatologic conditions. We wanted to take a closer look at how patients both feel about and use MCPs as part of their treatment plans.”

More than 500 patients over 18 years were asked about their opinions related to MCPs. Results found that 17.6% of patients used an over-the-counter (OTC) cannabis product to

Health Hat Trick? Hockey Fan’s Eye for Skin Cancer May Have Saved a Life

January 14, 2022 0 Comments

Did you hear about the hockey fan who typed “Please go see a doctor” to the guy across the plexiglass? Is this an example of how there’s never a bad time to notify someone – even a stranger – about a potential urgent health issue?

I was impressed that the fan had no formal dermatology training and with the unusual way that she notified the man in the middle of a hockey game – via cell phone… I guess that’s the younger generation.

I was at the gym a couple weeks ago, and noticed my instructor had a basal cell skin cancer on her face. I told her she needs to see her dermatologist. She’s not my patient, but she did go in, and indeed it was a skin cancer.

Are there different types of melanoma, and which ones are most dangerous?

There are different forms of skin cancer –
