Flair-ups may occur when there is contact with harsh detergents or pets and may also happen when you catch a cold or feel especially stressful. With medical treatment, these symptoms can be effectively managed. The disease is not contagious and won’t spread to another person. The cause of psoriasis is not known, but it is believed to be related to immune system problems that generate inflammation. According to research, the activation of a certain type of white blood cells that affects the immune system triggers the disease.
With systemic lupus, the situation can be very different, with the loss of hair much more dramatic and noticeable. Lupus hair loss can be caused by the disease itself, as the immune system destroys hair follicles, or by medicines such as prednisone (a synthetic drug similar to cortisone, used to relieve rheumatic and allergic conditions and to treat leukemia).

There are a couple ways we can treat Rosecea. One, is the use of our Sciton Laser (or Versapulse-C) to seal the broken vessels and prevent blood flow to the surface. With laser treatment of these lines they will typically disappear after one or two laser treatments. The cost to treat one view this would be $250-$500 for each of two treatments. Another method is by use of Mixed Intense pulse light IPL (Photoderm) which, despite it’s name is a laser-like treatment, is emerging as an effective treatment for these Rosacea symptoms.
PDT makes the skin sensitive to light and is an alternative to surgery. Doc Shop’s article “Photodynamic Therapy” states, it is used to treat basal cell carcinoma, bowen’s disease, and actinic keratosis. Photodynamic therapy works best to treat areas of the skin that have cancer in more than just one spot on the body. It is not a beneficial treatment if the cancer is located deep beneath the skin’s tissue. A major benefit of photodynamic therapy is that the appearance of the skin is so much better after treatment than surgery.
Repairing the defective DNA in a cell helps maintain a cells genetic information. In A-T the ATM gene is disrupted in the making of proteins that regulate cell growth. These mutated genes do not repair DNA damage instead they allow for these defects to be spread into other cells. This allows for uncontrolled division and growth of cells which can lead to cancerous tumors. These mutations also allow for unwanted cell death which leads to the loss of important cells in the brain involved with coordination.
Another option is tattooing small areas of the skin to cover the patches. Other possible treatments are simple sunscreen with a sensible UVA protection, cosmetic coverup (makeup or dye) to cover the patches and having support/counseling. How likely is for a person to recover from this disease? Unfortunately a person 's recovery depends on the person it is impossible to know what treatments will work for each patient because every person is different. It also depends on how early you find the disease forming and where the areas have formed for example if it forms on the areas where there is a large numbers of hair you have a better chance of recovery.
Due to the sickling of the cells blood vessels may be blocked which causes the hands and/or feet to painfully swell. Swelling only occurs on the back of the hands and feet and moves into the finger and toes. This may be the first sign of sickle cell in infants. The spleen helps filter out abnormal red blood cells and helps fight infections. At times the spleen traps many cells that should be in the bloodstream and it grows large.
Psoriasis A long term chronic skin disease which causes skin cells to grow too rapidly is known as Psoriasis. The results are thick silvery, white, or red patches to appear on the surface of the skin. Areas affected are generally the elbows, knees, scalp, back, palms, face, and feet. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it’s estimated that about 7 million people in the United States alone are suffering from the skin disease, a vast majority being Caucasians. Conditions can flare in people typically around old age, but it can still be diagnosed from ages 15-30 or also around the common ages of 40-60.
These set of symptoms led me to diagnose the patient to have otitis externa with transient otitis media with effusion (OME). Since the management of otitis externa should focus on clearing any debris from the canal, addressing the pain, and alleviate the inflammation and infection (Buttaro et al., 2013). To alleviate the pain, I would order an analgesic or narcotic according to the severity of the pain. Next, I would clear any debris in the ear canal that could hinder healing while being careful not to introduce anything sharp into the ear canal. Then I would order a topical antibiotic to repair the redness and inflammation of the external ear.
Latino traditions include the use of curanderos, healers. Curanderos may distinguish between “hot” and “cold” illnesses and occasionally between natural and supernatural diseases. The purpose of labeling hot and cold illnesses is finding a balance between the two temperatures in order to heal the disease. For instance, a mother might follow the advice to use cooling herbs to treat diaper rash, which is considered a hot condition. However, she might also stop giving her infant vitamins, because they are a hot therapy (Juckett, 2013).
