Symptoms: Keratosis pilaris is the number one condition which matches the symptoms of dry skin bumps. In this condition a person will get fine bumpy texture to the skin over the upper arm, thigh or other body areas. The bumps on arms or skin are size of grain of sand, and slightly pink color can be seen around the bumps. This skin condition generally is worse during winters, and clears up during summer.
While warts usually go away without any treatment, however, they may also persist for a long time, sometimes even years, if left untreated. Although warts are usually contagious, some people seem to be more susceptible to them and some types of virus seem to be more contagious than others, e.g. genital warts.
Topical retinoids are obtained from vitamin A and are often used to stimulate cellular turnover and counter the clogging of hair follicles. Retinoids manage epithelial cell growth, which is very important in the treatment of the skin condition. Retinoids may be an effective treatment, but they can cause bothersome skin irritations, such as serious dryness, redness, and peeling which then can lead to further keratosis pilaris plugs.
Forward to 1965, an in depth study on sleep apnea was led by a French physician known as Dr. Gestalt. He was undertaking research and studies on people who have sleep issues. His findings resulted in a greater knowledge of what is sleep apnea but still there was no cure.
The drug has been shown to cause a painful medical condition called osteonecrosis (ONJ), or "dead jaw." Osteonecrosis is a slow death of bone tissue in the jaw that occurs because of poor blood supply to the bone. Side effects of ONJ include mouth swelling, loosening of teeth and exposed bone.
Diabetes, once it has developed, is incurable; but changing your eating habits and mental attitude to prevent compulsive overeating is something you can start to do today.
Due to its antiviral properties, garlic can eliminate warts within a short time. Make a warm moist preparation of crushed raw garlic. Mash the garlic and apply it directly on the wart. Cover the affected area with a bandage for 24 hours. After removing the bandage, you will see a blister, which indicates that the wart may fall off within a week.
Recent Research: Advances in radiation therapy are allowing higher doses of radiation to be applied with less damage to surrounding normal tissues, such as the brain and spinal cord. Different types of radiation therapy (including proton beam therapy, intraoperative radiation, and brachytherapy) may offer better treatment of these tumours. These therapies may be combined with more limited surgery in the future. New drug treatments, including use of a drug called imatinib mseylate (Gleevac) are being investigated which may help slow the growth of tumours that can't be removed.
