HIV associated eosinophilic folliculitis--differential diagnosis and management. (1/52)

Eosinophilic folliculitis (EF) is a chronic, intensely pruritic condition of unknown pathogenesis that causes marked morbidity in those HIV patients whom it affects. There is a wide differential diagnosis of itchy skin conditions in HIV which are amenable to different treatments. It is therefore essential to take a biopsy of each suspected case and examine multiple sections of the biopsy to confirm or refute a diagnosis of EF. Treatment of EF can be difficult but we hope that by suggesting a rational approach to this and considering possible therapeutic options more patients may be helped with this troublesome dermatosis.  (+info)

Pseudomonas dermatitis/folliculitis associated with pools and hot tubs--Colorado and Maine, 1999-2000. (2/52)

During 1999-2000, outbreaks of Pseudomonas aeruginosa dermatitis and otitis externa associated with swimming pool and hot tub use occurred in Colorado and Maine. This report summarizes these outbreaks and provides recommendations for swimming pool and hot tub operation and maintenance, particularly when using offsite monitoring of water disinfectant and pH levels or when cyanuric acid is added to pools as a chlorine stabilizer.  (+info)

The pseudomonas hot-foot syndrome. (3/52)

BACKGROUND: Between March and May 1998, there was an outbreak of a clinically distinct skin eruption on the soles of the feet of children who used a community wading pool. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of 40 children in whom this syndrome developed between March and May 1998. We treated 17 children and advised the attending physicians on the care of the other 23. Follow-up data were obtained for up to one year. RESULTS: Exquisitely painful erythematous plantar nodules developed in 40 children (age, 2 to 15 years) within 40 hours after they had used a wading pool whose floor was coated with abrasive grit. Culture of the plantar pustules from one child yielded Pseudomonas aeruginosa with a pattern on pulsed-field gel electrophoresis that was identical to that of a strain of P. aeruginosa cultured from the pool water. A skin-biopsy specimen from this patient showed a perivascular and perieccrine neutrophilic infiltrate, and a specimen from another patient showed a dermal microabscess. Thirty-seven patients were treated symptomatically; three others were treated with cephalexin. All patients recovered within 14 days, but three children had recurrences of the painful plantar nodules within 24 hours after using the pool again. Folliculitis developed in one patient. CONCLUSIONS: The "pseudomonas hot-foot syndrome" is characterized by the acute onset in children of exquisitely tender plantar nodules and a benign, self-limited course. This community outbreak developed after exposure to pool water containing high concentrations of P. aeruginosa.  (+info)

Common bacterial skin infections. (4/52)

Family physicians frequently treat bacterial skin infections in the office and in the hospital. Common skin infections include cellulitis, erysipelas, impetigo, folliculitis, and furuncles and carbuncles. Cellulitis is an infection of the dermis and subcutaneous tissue that has poorly demarcated borders and is usually caused by Streptococcus or Staphylococcus species. Erysipelas is a superficial form of cellulitis with sharply demarcated borders and is caused almost exclusively by Streptococcus. Impetigo is also caused by Streptococcus or Staphylococcus and can lead to lifting of the stratum corneum resulting in the commonly seen bullous effect. Folliculitis is an inflammation of the hair follicles. When the infection is bacterial rather than mechanical in nature, it is most commonly caused by Staphylococcus. If the infection of the follicle is deeper and involves more follicles, it moves into the furuncle and carbuncle stages and usually requires incision and drainage. All of these infections are typically diagnosed by clinical presentation and treated empirically. If antibiotics are required, one that is active against gram-positive organisms such as penicillinase-resistant penicillins, cephalosporins, macrolides, or fluoroquinolones should be chosen. Children, patients who have diabetes, or patients who have immunodeficiencies are more susceptible to gram-negative infections and may require treatment with a second- or third-generation cephalosporin.  (+info)

Treatment of pseudofolliculitis barbae in very dark skin with a long pulse Nd:YAG laser. (5/52)

BACKGROUND: Pseudofolliculitis barbae affects some individuals with coarse curly hair. Currently available treatment modalities are often ineffective. In some studies, lasers have been shown to be potentially helpful in mitigating disease severity by reducing the number and/or thickness of hair shafts. METHODS: This was a side-by-side interventional study conducted at a military tertiary medical facility. The study group included 26 patients (skin types IV, V, and VI) referred from primary care physicians with a diagnosis of pseudofolliculitis barbae refractory to medical therapy. A neodymium YAG laser was used to treat one half of the neck. One month later, shaving bumps were counted and compared to their preoperative levels on both sides. RESULTS: Mean postoperative papule counts were 11.6 +/- 6 (SD) and 30.1 +/- 19 (SD) on the treated side and untreated sides, respectively. CONCLUSION: Neodymium YAG laser treatment represents a safe and effective option for reducing papule formation in patients with pseudofolliculitis barbae.  (+info)

Outbreak of Pseudomonas aeruginosa folliculitis associated with a swimming pool inflatable. (6/52)

On 18 February 2002, the Communicable Disease Unit was notified by the local Public Health Service Laboratory of a child with a positive skin swab for Pseudomonas aeruginosa. This child had attended the local swimming pool and played on an inflatable, subsequently presenting to a Primary Care Nurse Practitioner with folliculitis. A total of 35 cases was identified during the outbreak. This paper describes a case-control study and microbiological sampling of the cases, the suspected inflatable and a survey of 10 swimming pool inflatables in the local area. The odds ratio for developing folliculitis following use of the inflatable was 12 (95% CI 1.05-136.80). The strain of P. aeruginosa found on the inflatable was identical to that obtained from skin swabs of cases. Nine of 10 (90%) of the inflatables sampled were colonized by P. aeruginosa. Attention should be given to the problem of routine decontamination of swimming pool inflatables. P. aeruginosa folliculitis needs to be considered in the differential diagnosis of skin rashes in children, especially in Primary Care.  (+info)

A study of the pancreatic response to food after gastrectomy in man. (7/52)

The results of intubation tests on 50 patients before and after gastrectomy have been reviewed. Following gastrectomy, the pancreatic response to food is modified in the following manner.(1) There is an increase in the resting volume of secretion.(2) After a Billroth I operation, the output in one hour after a meal is some two-thirds of the pre-operative output.(3) After a Polya gastrectomy, the pancreas continues to secrete at its resting rate after meals.(4) Dissociation of enzymes occurs in the afferent loop after a Polya operation. Lipase is frequently absent from the intestinal contents, and trypsin occasionally so.(5) Vagal section appears to be an important factor in the production of the new pattern of response.  (+info)

Alopecia areata in C3H/HeJ mice involves leukocyte-mediated root sheath disruption in advance of overt hair loss. (8/52)

Alopecia areata (AA) can be induced in C3H/HeJ mice by grafting full-thickness AA-affected skin. An 8- to 12-week delay between surgery and overt hair loss onset provides an opportunity to examine disease pathogenesis. Normal haired C3H/HeJ mice were sham-grafted or grafted with AA-affected skin. Mice were euthanatized 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 weeks after surgery along with chronic AA-affected mice as a positive control. Until 6 weeks after grafting, inflammation was only evident around anagen-stage hair follicles in host skin adjacent to but not distant from the AA-affected graft. From 8 weeks on, AA-grafted but not sham-grafted mice exhibited a diffuse dermal inflammation at distant sites that progressively focused on anagen-stage hair follicles at 10 and 12 weeks. Perifollicular inflammation was primarily composed of CD4+ and CD8+ cells associated with follicular epithelium intercellular adhesion molecule -1 expression. Only CD8+ cells penetrated intrafollicularly by 12 weeks after surgery, although both CD4+ and CD8+ intrafollicular cells were observed in chronic AA-affected mice. Under electron microscopy, intrafollicular lymphocyte and macrophage infiltration associated with hair follicle dystrophy was prominent 10 weeks after surgery, primarily within the differentiating outer and inner root sheaths. This study shows that focal follicular inflammation develops some time in advance of overt hair loss and focuses on the differentiating root sheaths in C3H/HeJ mice. The severity of inflammation and the degree of hair follicle dystrophy induced by the infiltrate appear to reach a threshold level before overt hair loss occurs.  (+info)

Scalp dermatoses refer to a group of skin conditions that affect the scalp. These conditions can range from mild and temporary to severe and chronic. Scalp dermatoses can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, environmental factors, and underlying medical conditions. Some common examples of scalp dermatoses include dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, tinea capitis (fungal infection), and alopecia areata (autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss). Scalp dermatoses can cause symptoms such as itching, redness, scaling, and hair loss. Treatment for scalp dermatoses depends on the specific condition and may include over-the-counter or prescription medications, lifestyle changes, and in some cases, surgery.

In the medical field, "baths" typically refers to a type of medical treatment in which a person is submerged in a warm or hot water bath. This type of treatment is often used to help relieve pain, reduce muscle tension, and promote relaxation. There are several different types of baths that may be used in medical treatment, including: 1. Hydrotherapy baths: These baths use warm or hot water to help relieve pain and reduce inflammation. They may be used to treat a variety of conditions, including arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain. 2. Epsom salt baths: These baths use a solution of magnesium sulfate (epsom salt) to help relieve muscle pain and tension. They may be used to treat conditions such as muscle cramps, soreness, and spasms. 3. Dead sea salt baths: These baths use a solution of salt from the Dead Sea to help relieve dry skin, eczema, and other skin conditions. They may also help to reduce inflammation and promote relaxation. 4. Milk baths: These baths use a mixture of warm water and milk to help soothe and moisturize the skin. They may be used to treat conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin. 5. Lavender baths: These baths use a solution of lavender oil to help promote relaxation and reduce stress. They may be used to treat conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, and depression. It's important to note that while baths can be a helpful treatment for certain conditions, they should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment. If you are experiencing pain or other symptoms, it's important to speak with a healthcare provider to determine the best course of treatment.

Dermatomycoses are a group of fungal infections that affect the skin and nails. These infections are caused by dermatophytes, which are a type of fungus that thrives in warm, moist environments, such as the skin, nails, and hair. Dermatomycoses can be classified into three main types: superficial, subcutaneous, and systemic. Superficial dermatomycoses affect only the outer layers of the skin and nails, and are usually mild and self-limiting. Examples of superficial dermatomycoses include athlete's foot, ringworm, and jock itch. Subcutaneous dermatomycoses involve deeper layers of the skin and can cause more serious symptoms, such as swelling, redness, and pain. Examples of subcutaneous dermatomycoses include sporotrichosis and chromoblastomycosis. Systemic dermatomycoses are rare and can affect multiple organs, including the lungs, brain, and heart. These infections are more difficult to treat and can be life-threatening if left untreated. Examples of systemic dermatomycoses include histoplasmosis and coccidioidomycosis. Treatment for dermatomycoses typically involves the use of antifungal medications, such as creams, ointments, or oral tablets. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary for intravenous antifungal therapy. Prevention of dermatomycoses involves maintaining good hygiene, avoiding contact with infected individuals or animals, and wearing protective clothing in high-risk environments.

Folliculitis is a skin condition characterized by inflammation of the hair follicles. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including bacterial or fungal infections, irritation from shaving or other hair removal methods, or certain medications. Symptoms of folliculitis may include redness, swelling, itching, and the formation of small bumps or pustules around the hair follicles. Treatment for folliculitis typically involves the use of antibiotics or antifungal medications, depending on the underlying cause of the condition. In some cases, topical creams or ointments may also be used to help reduce inflammation and promote healing. It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect that you may have folliculitis, as it can be a sign of a more serious underlying condition.

Acantholysis is a medical term that refers to the separation of cells in the outermost layer of the skin, known as the stratum corneum. This process can occur due to various medical conditions, including psoriasis, pemphigus, and bullous pemphigoid. In psoriasis, acantholysis is caused by an overproduction of skin cells, which leads to the formation of thick, scaly plaques on the skin. In pemphigus, acantholysis is caused by the production of antibodies that attack the proteins that hold the cells of the skin together. In bullous pemphigoid, acantholysis is caused by an autoimmune response that leads to the formation of blisters on the skin. Acantholysis can also occur as a result of certain medications, infections, and other medical conditions. Treatment for acantholysis depends on the underlying cause and may include medications, such as corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, and antibiotics, as well as lifestyle changes and supportive care.

Prurigo is a skin condition characterized by intense itching that is difficult to control. It is a chronic condition that can last for months or even years. Prurigo can affect any part of the body, but it is most commonly found on the legs, arms, and trunk. There are several types of prurigo, including: 1. Prurigo nodularis: This type of prurigo is characterized by the development of hard, raised bumps on the skin that are extremely itchy. 2. Prurigo simplex: This type of prurigo is characterized by a persistent, intense itching that is not associated with any visible skin changes. 3. Prurigo pigmentosa: This type of prurigo is characterized by the development of dark brown or black spots on the skin that are extremely itchy. Prurigo can be caused by a variety of factors, including allergies, infections, and certain medications. It can also be a symptom of an underlying medical condition, such as liver disease or kidney disease. Treatment for prurigo typically involves managing the itching and addressing any underlying causes of the condition. This may include the use of antihistamines, corticosteroids, or other medications, as well as lifestyle changes and stress management techniques.

Scleromyxedema is a rare, chronic skin disorder characterized by thick, lumpy skin that is often painful and itchy. It is also known as scleroderma myxedema or myxedematous scleroderma. The condition is caused by an overproduction of a protein called hyaluronic acid, which leads to the accumulation of fluid and swelling in the skin and underlying tissues. Scleromyxedema can affect any part of the body, but it most commonly affects the face, neck, and hands. It can also cause joint pain and stiffness, as well as fatigue and other systemic symptoms. There is no cure for scleromyxedema, but treatment can help to manage symptoms and slow the progression of the disease.

Skin diseases, vesiculobullous, refer to a group of medical conditions characterized by the formation of blisters or bullae on the skin. These blisters are filled with fluid and can be painful, itchy, or both. Vesiculobullous skin diseases can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, infections, autoimmune disorders, and exposure to certain medications or chemicals. Some common examples of vesiculobullous skin diseases include pemphigus, pemphigoid, bullous pemphigoid, and epidermolysis bullosa. These conditions can affect different areas of the body and can range in severity from mild to life-threatening. Treatment for vesiculobullous skin diseases typically involves a combination of medications, such as corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, and antibiotics, as well as wound care and other supportive measures.

Isotretinoin is a medication that is used to treat severe acne. It is a form of vitamin A that works by reducing the amount of oil produced by the skin's oil glands. This can help to unclog pores and reduce the formation of pimples and blackheads. Isotretinoin is typically prescribed for people who have not responded to other treatments for acne, such as antibiotics or topical creams. It is usually taken in pill form and is usually taken once a day for 15 to 20 weeks. Isotretinoin can have some serious side effects, including dry skin, hair loss, and birth defects, so it is only prescribed to people who are willing to follow strict guidelines to prevent these side effects.

Mucinosis, follicular is a condition characterized by the accumulation of mucus-secreting cells in the follicles of the skin. It is a rare disorder that can affect various parts of the body, including the skin, respiratory tract, and gastrointestinal tract. In the skin, mucinosis, follicular typically presents as small, raised bumps or papules that are usually asymptomatic. These bumps may be flesh-colored, pink, or red and can occur on the face, neck, trunk, or extremities. In some cases, the bumps may become inflamed or infected, leading to pain, swelling, and pus formation. The exact cause of mucinosis, follicular is not well understood, but it is believed to be related to an abnormality in the production or accumulation of mucus-secreting cells. The condition is more common in women than in men and is often associated with other autoimmune disorders, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. Treatment for mucinosis, follicular typically involves the use of topical or oral medications to reduce inflammation and promote the shedding of the affected skin cells. In severe cases, surgical removal of the affected tissue may be necessary.

Bromine is a chemical element with the symbol Br and atomic number 35. It is a halogen gas that is commonly used in the medical field as a disinfectant and antiseptic. Bromine is also used in the treatment of certain skin conditions, such as acne and psoriasis, and as a component in some medications. In higher concentrations, bromine can be toxic and may cause respiratory problems, skin irritation, and other health issues. It is important to use bromine under the guidance of a healthcare professional to ensure safe and effective use.

Tetracyclines are a class of antibiotics that are derived from the soil bacterium Streptomyces. They are commonly used to treat a variety of bacterial infections, including respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, skin infections, and sexually transmitted infections. Tetracyclines work by inhibiting the growth of bacteria by blocking the synthesis of proteins, which are essential for bacterial growth and reproduction. They are available in various forms, including oral tablets, capsules, and injectable solutions. However, tetracyclines are not effective against viral infections and should not be used to treat viral illnesses. Additionally, tetracyclines can cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach pain, and should be used with caution in pregnant women and children under the age of 8.

Pruritus is a medical term used to describe an intense, persistent, and often uncontrollable urge to scratch or rub a particular area of the skin. It is commonly referred to as "itching" and can be caused by a variety of factors, including skin conditions, infections, allergies, hormonal changes, and certain medications. Pruritus can be a symptom of many different medical conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, liver disease, kidney disease, and cancer. It can also be a side effect of certain medications, such as antibiotics, antihistamines, and chemotherapy drugs. Treatment for pruritus depends on the underlying cause. In some cases, over-the-counter creams or ointments may be sufficient to relieve symptoms. In more severe cases, prescription medications or other treatments may be necessary. It is important to consult a healthcare professional if you are experiencing persistent or severe itching, as it could be a sign of an underlying medical condition that requires treatment.

Skin diseases refer to any medical conditions that affect the skin, hair, and nails. These conditions can range from minor irritations and infections to more serious and chronic conditions that can significantly impact a person's quality of life. Skin diseases can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, environmental factors, infections, allergies, and autoimmune disorders. Some common examples of skin diseases include acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, hives, warts, and skin cancer. Treatment for skin diseases depends on the specific condition and its severity. It may involve the use of topical creams, ointments, or medications, as well as lifestyle changes, such as avoiding triggers or making dietary modifications. In some cases, more aggressive treatments, such as surgery or light therapy, may be necessary. Overall, skin diseases are a common and diverse group of medical conditions that can affect people of all ages and backgrounds. Early detection and proper treatment are essential for managing these conditions and preventing complications.

Eosinophilia is a medical condition characterized by an increase in the number of eosinophils, a type of white blood cell, in the blood. Eosinophils are a type of granulocyte, which are immune cells that play a role in fighting off infections and parasites. Eosinophilia can be caused by a variety of factors, including allergies, parasitic infections, autoimmune disorders, and certain types of cancer. It can also be a side effect of certain medications, such as corticosteroids and some chemotherapy drugs. Eosinophilia can be classified as either absolute eosinophilia, which is an increase in the number of eosinophils in the blood regardless of the total number of white blood cells, or relative eosinophilia, which is an increase in the proportion of eosinophils to other types of white blood cells. Eosinophilia can be a sign of an underlying medical condition, and it is important to identify and treat the underlying cause in order to manage the symptoms and prevent complications. Treatment may involve medications to reduce inflammation or to target the underlying cause of the eosinophilia, as well as supportive care to manage symptoms.

Pseudomonas infections are bacterial infections caused by the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in soil, water, and on the surfaces of plants and animals. It can cause a wide range of infections in humans, including pneumonia, urinary tract infections, skin infections, and bloodstream infections. Pseudomonas infections are particularly common in people with weakened immune systems, such as those with cystic fibrosis, cancer, or HIV/AIDS. They can also occur in people who have had recent surgery or who are being treated with antibiotics, which can disrupt the normal balance of bacteria in the body and allow Pseudomonas to grow and cause an infection. Pseudomonas infections can be difficult to treat because Pseudomonas is often resistant to antibiotics. Treatment typically involves a combination of antibiotics and supportive care, such as fluids and oxygen therapy. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary.
