Posted by on in Skin Matters

Alert4_iconIn this Volume 65, Issue 1 of the JAAD, Kerner et al report blunted adrenal responses after the use of topical corticosteroids. While it is reassuring that laboratory values remained within the normal range in this particular study, the blunted responses serve as a reminder that systemic absorption of topically applied corticosteroids can have systemic implications.

Resveratrol and curcumin suppress immune response through CD28/CTLA-4 and CD80 co-stimulatory pathway

Posted by on in Skin Matters

The role of resveratrol (can be extracted from grape, veratrum album which commonly known as the False Helleborine, also known as White Hellebore, European White Hellebore, White Veratrum) and curcumin (extracted from Turmeric, also known as yellow ginger) is well documented in cancer, inflammation, diabetes and various other diseases. However, their immuinnosuppressive action on T cells, B cells and macrophages is not well documented.

Atopic dermatitis, cutaneous steroids and cataracts in children: two case reports

Posted by on in Skin Matters

alert1_iconThese cases demonstrate that atopic dermatitis and topical corticosteroids may be associated with cataracts in children as well as adults. The cause of cataracts in atopic dermatitis is not known. However, it has been suggested that habitual tapping and rubbing of the face may play a role. Care needs to be taken when prescribing corticosteroids. Inadequate treatment of atopic dermatitis may lead to other ocular complications such as keratitis and permanent visual loss.
