#Psoriasis, #Allergens, #Hayfever

Studies have shown that serum levels of total IgE are significantly
higher in psoriasis patients overall and that a total E immunoglobulin concentration was higher in patients with more severe clinical presentation, e.g. #psoriatic #erythroderma. The most common
airborne allergens were pollens of birch, motherwort, and the grasses
rye and timothy. The presence of a higher IgE concentration
against food allergens such as potato and carrot was also observed, this is due to observed cross reactions e.g. birch and motherwort pollens
can cross with potato or carrot allergens. TO READ THE FULL TEXT ARTICLE click on the link https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4793048/

National #Eczema Week in the UK ……. The importance of #Moisturisers in the treatment of #Eczema
Moisturising components can be either hydrophilic or lipophilic. Hydrophilic (water-based) moisturising components are predominantly important for skin hydration, whilst lipophilic (oil-based) moisturising components are designed to remain on the surface of the skin as an occlusive (waterproofing) layer that prevent evaporation of water and assist barrier recovery. Moisturisers can include humectants (e.g. urea, glycerol, lactic acid) which help increase the attraction and retention of water by the stratum corneum; occlusives (e.g. petrolatum, mineral oil, dimethicone) that form a layer on the skin surface and prevent TEWL (Transepidermal water loss) (; and emollients (lanolin, glycerol stearate, glyceryl stearate, soy sterols) to soften the skin and make it smoother.

There was moderate-certainty evidence that early introduction of egg (from 4-6 months) or peanut (from 4-11 months) was associated with reduced risk of egg or peanut allergy, respectively. CLICK ON THE LINK TO READ THE FULL TEXT REPORT

Rick Guidotti, founder of the not-for-profit organization Positive Exposure, says his message for dermatologists is simple: SEE PATIENTS AS PEOPLE FIRST. For nearly two decades he has worked to showcase the beauty and humanity of individuals who live with genetic, physical and intellectual differences.

#PSORIASIS AND #COMORBIDITIES – CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE (COPD)
Over recent years psoriasis has been classified as a systemic chronic inflammatory disorder and has been linked with several diseases and conditions that are also immune-mediated inflammatory conditions.
#Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (#COPD) is characterized by the gradual progression of irreversible airflow obstruction and increased inflammation in the airways and lungs that is generally distinguishable from the inflammation caused by asthma. The symptoms of COPD are shortage of breath, increased risk of bronchitis and emphysema. Read how it relates to psoriasis ........ http://psoriasiseczema.com.au/psoriasis-and-comorbidities-…/

On the 7th of July we shared a post from the National Psoriasis Foundation on the "Pros and Cons of Teledermatology" .... last evening we received this Before and After Photograph from one of our Patients who had her consultation via Skype ..... this is what she had to say about her experience ...... After an appointment with Dr Tirant some months ago I followed his advice to get the success that you see in the photos. It may not seem like a major difference but to me it was incredible! I instantly felt at ease with Dr during my appointment - he is so down to earth and calming! His reassuring advice not only helped with my skin but also helped with the stress that I have felt whenever I think about my rosacea. Although initially skeptical I began the treatment which, let's be honest, wasn't difficult at all (diet and topical cream) and was so super excited to get some relief from my condition!! It's life changing for me to know that there is an option for me out there and with a bit of patience my skin can actually be better!!
I can not thank you enough. I can't wait to continue for a longer period and see if I can clear my rosacea completely!
Thank you so much.

A very interesting report and FULL Text PDF available ... well worth the read ........ An estimated 11 million workers in the USA are potentially exposed to agents that can become a cause of allergic diseases such as occupational asthma and allergic contact dermatitis, which can adversely affect health and well-being. Hundreds of chemicals (e.g. metals, epoxy and acrylic resins, rubber additives, and chemical intermediates) and proteins (e.g. natural rubber latex, plant proteins, mould, animal dander) present in virtually every industry have been identified as causes of allergic disease. In general, allergens can be classified as low molecular weight (chemical) allergens and high molecular weight (protein) allergens.

It is great to see that some Dermatologists are beginning to see the importance of Integrated Dermatology and that there is a valid basis for alternate natural based treatments....... Courtesy of the National Eczema Association Facebook post ....Yesterday at 08:00 ·

Is there a place for alternative medicine in the treatment of atopic dermatitis?

Dr Peter Lio of Medical Dermatology Associates of Chicago and a member of our Scientific Advisory Committee, and Fatima Lakhani, a medical student at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, discuss an integrative approach to eczema.
