Grooming pubic hair linked to increased STI risk
Wed, 07 Dec 2016 00:00:00 +0800 | NHS News Feed
Conclusion This US questionnaire-based study aimed to assess the link between the grooming of pubic hair and lifetime history of STIs. The findings showed that grooming was associated with a higher rate of STIs. The study has strengths in that it included a large number of both men and women with a very small number excluded from the analysis. The team made attempts to make the survey as fair as possible and provided a laptop computer and free internet service to those without access to the internet. They also carried out a pilot survey to make sure it was valid and easy to understand. However there are some important limitations to this research that overall mean that it can't prove conclusively that grooming pubic hair directly increases your risk of STIs. By design this cross-sectiona...

What is Jacquet Diaper Dermatitis?
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 07:25:13 +0800 | PediatricEducation.org
Discussion The differential diagnosis of diaper dermatitis is usually fairly easy with irritant, fungal and bacterial causes being the most common. These are usually easily treated with resolution. When it is not improving then the differential must be expanded and other disease processes must be considered. These again usually include problems that are relatively easily treated such as scabies, lice or tinea. Other much less likely conditions in this age group would be syphilis or granuloma inguinale. Other signs or symptoms need to also be considered as Crohn’s disease, histocytosis or acrodermatitis enteropathica can present as a diaper rash also.

What is Gianotti-Crosti Syndrome?
Mon, 08 Sep 2014 07:01:37 +0800 | PediatricEducation.org
Discussion Infectious exanthams are usually considered when rashes are bilateral, symmetric and relatively widespread. They usually involve the trunk too and have associated systemic symptoms. Gianotti-Crosti syndrome (GCS) or acropapular dermatitis of childhood is often misdiagnosed because it doesn’t follow these rules. A discussion of common viral exanthams can be reviewed here and a differential diagnosis of rashes by pattern and distributions can be reviewed here. Dr. Ferdinando Gianotti came from a poor family, underwent several personal tragedies, but entered medicine and created the first department of pediatric dermatology in Italy (possibly in Europe). He became interested in a child with papular eruption that he could not classify and after seeing several other cases over...
