There is one disease that sparks interest in me, that disease is Lupus. The main reason that I am interested in Lupus is because my mom has Lupus. I’m going to tell you about the two major kinds of Lupus and the effects they have on people. The first type is Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Systemic Lupus affects the kidneys. Can cause inflammation to the nervous system and brain also inflammation in the brain's blood vessels. Another form of Lupus is Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus, this lupus is limited to the skin.

The disease is primarily known as Ringworm but it can also identified as Tinea or Dermatophytosis. Ringworm can spread by coming in contact with people who already have Ringworm or even animals. It is also spread through sharing dirty items such as combs, towels etc. It could also be developed if you come in contact with any of the fungi which are trichophyton, microsporum and epidermophyton they normally live as spores in soil. Unlike other disease Ringworm has different effects on different body parts. Ringworm on the body or groin which is known as the Jock Itch when it is first contracted it is a circular shape and is similar to a rash. It grows and become fatter, after in contact with an infected person its
A rash for dermatomyositis can be a violet-colored or dusty red rash that appears most commonly on a person’s face or eyelids, but it can also be found around a person’s nails, knuckles, elbows, back, chest and knees. Most of the time the first visual sign of dermatomyositis is a patchy bluish-purplish rash. Another sign of dermatomyositis is the progressive weakening of the muscles closest to the trunk of the body, such as: the hips, thighs, shoulders, upper arms, and neck. Over time this pain will gradually worsen, so the weakness will affect both the right and left sides of the

The names of different ringworm cases depend on where it is located on the body. The fungus can appear on the body, a beard, feet, groin area, or scalp. The word tinea is used before each term. Tinea simply means a fungal infection of the skin, hair, or nails. Tinea capitis is a fungal infection of the scalp. This can cause hair loss. Tinea corporis is the "body ringworm" that develops on the trunk of the body. Tinea cruis is calso called "jock itch" and is located in the groin area. It is much more common in males than in females. Tinea pedis is "athlete 's foot" and it usually starts between the third and fourth digits. Tinea manuum is a fungal infection on the hand. It happens usually when the person scratches an infected area on their skin and they transmit it to the hand. Onychomycosis is when the fungus attacks the skin under the
SJS is characterized by round, red papules that resemble insect bites. Within a short amount of time, these lesions change into varying sizes and patterns. They may become red with white centers that have papules on the center. This gives them a target-like appearance.

If symptoms do not improve or get worse or if they are at increased risk of complications, the doctor may prescribe an antifungal medication such as fluconazole. Antifungal drugs are also used for people with chronic or disseminated disease.
I had destroyed the majestic carpet, it was shattered in pieces while I heard a mournful scream racing around the room, the master exasperatedly grabbed my leg and ruthlessly swung me across the room into the tomb as I went into survival mode. The tomb was an old filthy cistern, buried under the court with a slippery stairway leading up to the rusty iron door covered with vines. There was no light down there besides the sun rays that managed to brutally flash through the cracks and holes. The tomb had very little air, you nearly suffocated. It feels like someone is grabbing your throat and squeezing it. When you become itchy you have the desire to itch yourself, but that just makes things worse as the blisters on your hand become jaded.
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF) is a tick born potentially fatal disease. It is caused by the bacterium Rickettsia Rickettsii. The CDC has record counts of RMSF since as early as the 1920’s in the US. Most of the cases of RMSF are reported in North and South America. Although it is most common in the Southeastern US, it has also been found in Canada, Mexico, and Central America. Early treatment with the antibiotics Doxycycline and Tetracycline is the key in preventing a fatal outcome. Treatment is most effective if started with five days of onset of symptoms. Early symptoms include high fever and rash. The rash will appear as small, flat, pink and non-itchy spots between two to five days after symptoms have begun and about 90% will develop this. The rash first appears on the wrist and the ankles then spreads in either directions up or down the legs and arms. Other symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain that mimics appendicitis, deep muscle pain, lack of appetite, or red eyes.
These regions of the skin that are often scratched turn out to be thick and weathered in appearance, and the patches can be red and darker than whatever is left of the skin. Constant scratching can prompt perpetual changes in skin shading. See a doctor if encountering exceptional tingle and/or there are perceptible changes in the skin. Our skin is the boundary to the outside world, is to some degree waterproof, and keeps our inner organs and frameworks safe from the components and from microorganisms attacking our bodies. Atopic dermatitis patients have impeded hindrance capacity. This implies the skin boundary is separated, loses dampness, and can permit microbes to develop and enter the body. The loss of water leaves the skin dry and broke. The objective of eczema administration is to renew dampness, and make a boundary to ensure the skin. This is the reason creams can offer assistance.
The molluscum contagiosum virus is characterized by lesions on the skin. These uncomfortable growths are small, raised bumps with a pearly appearance and smooth, firm texture. The lesions are usually itchy, sore, red, and swollen. The smallest growth can be the size of a pin head while the largest growth can be the size of a pencil eraser. These bumps can appear anywhere on the body, though it is unusual to find it on the soles of the feet or the hands. The virus is located in the top layer of the skin, the epidermis, and doesn’t circulate throughout the body. Many people mistake the molluscum contagiosum virus for the common chicken pox virus, but the difference can be found in the characteristics of the lesions: chicken pox spots are water-filled blisters while molluscum are more dome-shaped and pearly.
