Lichen Simplex Chronicus/ Prurigo Nodularis

LSC is a severely pruritic chronic disorder characterised by 1 or more lichenised plaques. Most common sites of involvement are the scalp, nape of neck, extensor aspects of extremities and anogenital regions. 

Causes:

LSC is induced by rubbing and scratching the body secondary to itch. Environmental factors like heat, sweat, irritation may also aggravate the condition. Patients with emotional lability or tension are more prone to develop this condition.

Clinical Features:

Severe itching is the hallmark of lichen simplex chronicus. Itching may be paroxysmal, sporadic or chronic. It may be conscious and to the point of replacing the sensation of itch with pain or may be unconscious occurring during sleep.

The frequent rubbing leads to development of lichenified scaly plaques. The most common sites of involvement are the nape of neck, scalp, ankles, extensor aspects of extremities and the anogenital regions. The scrotum is the common site of involvement in men. The nodules may vary in size from 0.5 mm to 3 mm.

Treatment:

Treatment is aimed at interrupting the itch scratch cycle. Systemic causes of itch should be identified and addressed. Potent topical steroids are generally prescribed to control itch. Anti histaminics like hydroxyzine or levocetrizine can also be given. Capsaicin, calcipotriol, cryotherapy have been used in the treatment of prurigo nodularis. PUVA therapy has also known to show some benefit.

Foot Drop

To avoid dragging the toes, people with foot drop may lift their kneehigher than normal. Or they may swing their leg in a wide arc.

Foot drop can happen to one foot or both feet at the same time. It can strike at any age.In general, foot drop stems fromweakness or paralysis of the muscles that lift the foot. It can have many different causes. Treatments for foot drop vary according to the cause. Most common causes and treatments for foot drop.

What causes foot drop?

  • Foot drop is a symptom of an underlying problem, rather than a disease itself. It can be temporary or permanent. Causes of foot drop include:
  • Nerve injury
  • Brain or spinal disorders
  • Muscle disorders

Here's some more detail on these causes:

Nerve injury. Most commonly, foot drop is caused by an injury to the peroneal nerve. The peroneal nerve is a branch of the sciatic nerve that wraps from the back of the knee to the front of the shin. Because it sits very close to the surface, it may be damaged easily.

An injury to the peroneal nerve may also be associated with pain or numbness along the shin or the top of the foot.

Some common ways the peroneal nerve is damaged or compressed include:


How do doctors treat foot drop?

Treatment for foot drop will depend on the cause. Early treatment may improve chances of recovery.

Treatments may include:

  • Lightweight braces
  • Shoe inserts (orthotics)

  • Physical therapy is used to strengthen foot and leg muscles. It may improve a person's ability to walk. In some cases, electronic devices that stimulate the leg nerves during walking may be appropriate.
  • Surgery may be recommended to try to repair or decompress a damaged nerve. In cases where foot drop is permanent, surgery to fuse the foot and ankle joint or to transfer tendons from stronger muscles may help improve gait and stability

Why You Should Drop That Bottle Of Hand Sanitizer?

MD - Skin
Dermatologist, Hyderabad
Why You Should Drop That Bottle Of Hand Sanitizer?

Although hand sanitizers offer you the convenience to clean your hands sans soap and water, and help in killing germs, these convenient health tools also come with their share of negatives.

Here's why you should drop that bottle of hand sanitizer, every time you can avoid and go conventional with soap and water:

1. Creation of Superbugs and Destruction of Cells
Although the ingredient triclosans prevent the development of bacteria, it does more harm than good. Studies show that it aids creation of superbugs (different types of bacteria that are resistant to certain forms of antibiotics). Furthermore, according to a 2014 study, triclosans have also been found to spur the development of breast cancer cells, not to mention the destruction of brain cells, according to research conducted by the university of california.

2. Causes Disruption in Hormones
Excessive use of hand sanitizers has also been found to bring about abnormal hormonal problems. Studies reveal that the triclosan ingredient can alter the way hormones function in the body, enabling bacteria to be able to adapt and become more resistant to antibiotics.

3. Development of Life-Threatening Health Problems
Another ingredient in hand sanitizers that play a role in preventing the growth of bacteria is parabens. This ingredient has been found to be a potent contributing factor in many health problems such as cancer, skin irritation, endocrine problems, to name a few.

4. Causes Skin Damage in The Long Run
As an active ingredient in hand sanitizers, alcohol can have an adverse effect on your health. It breaks down the protective outermost layer of skin, rendering it easy for toxins like parabens or bpa (bisphenol a) that is found in plastics to penetrate your skin easily.

5. Makes You Resistant to Antibiotics
Using hand sanitizers can make you resistant to antibiotics, thereby lowering your resistance to diseases. They may affect your body's immunity by killing off good bacteria that are responsible for keeping you safe from disease-causing bad bacteria. A study conducted in 2011 found that health care workers who used hand sanitizers more than soap and water are 6 times more likely to fall prey to outbreaks of norovirus (a highly infectious virus that causes viral gastroenteritis).

Washing the hands with an antibacterial soap is not always necessary unless there is an infection of hands or some where on the skin. Washing two three times with a good brand soap is sufficient to remove all the dirt and microbes every time you wash the hands. After hand wash dry the hands with a clean and washed cotton cloth.Always keep the nails very short so that they could also be cleaned properly.

Good personal hygiene along with clean environment normally is sufficient to avoid cross infection.

Drop the Razor and Go in for Laser Hair Removal

Drop the Razor and Go in for Laser Hair Removal

Those were the time when it was deemed tempting for a man to be hairy. With hair almost everywhere, the manlier was the line of thinking. Unfortunately, those days are gone. Today, men don’t want the odd patches of hair on their shoulder or back of the arms and don’t even want chest hair anymore. So, just like ladies, men want their wanted hair removed as well.

There are DIY hair removal kits available, which people really don’t get attracted to. When it comes intense skincare treatments, many prefer to let professionals work wonders, rather than getting some random kit from any local store. Clinic Dermatech offers laser hair treatment for both men and women and has attained the for their work and excellence in the field.

Why choose permanent laser hair removal?

When it comes to hair removal, women have always had a myriad of options like shaving, waxing, and plucking. Men, on the other hand, have been at a loss as they have close to no option other than shaving. Shaving of hair on the face is done but what about the other parts of the body. Getting rid of hair on the chest, the back or elsewhere has been somewhat a mystery. Razors are the easy available but they are also not a permanent solution as the hair tend to regrow. Laser hair removal doesn’t present these problems. Let us check out some benefits of laser hair removal for men:

• It reduces hair growth permanently
• It eliminates ingrown hairs
• It saves you from razor burn and razor-caused bumps

How Does It Work?

Basically, the laser beam causes localized damage to the hair by concentrating light on the hair follicle, while not affecting the rest of the skin. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the laser beams, and this destroys the hair. It takes just a fraction of a second to destroy many follicles of hair at one time. However, permanent hair removal depends on many factors including skin colour, hair colour, and the strength of the laser the particular person can tolerate.

What is the cost of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is not really that expensive as people might think. Initially, when laser hair removal was first starting out, it was extremely expensive. Even if a small area was to be treated, like the upper lip, it would cost a large sum of money. Now with the advent of better technologies and the fact that the treatment is more common, the price has fallen down substantially. The cost also depends on the size of the area to be treated. So, getting both the legs treated will be more expensive than doing your underarms.
