Tattoos are a popular way for many to express themselves and to make a lasting impression by way of permanent ink. A 2016 report by The Harris Poll said roughly 3 in 10 American adults have at least one tattoo — and of those inked, nearly 7 in 10 have multiple tattoos. Now, a clever entrepreneur may have found a way to revolutionize the tattoo industry by making memories last forever with the help of smartphone technology.
The American Academy of Dermatology has released a statement on sunscreen, emphasizing that "sunscreen remains a safe, effective form of sun protection."
"As one component of a daily sun-protection strategy, sunscreen is an important tool in the fight against skin cancer, including melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer," Dr. Henry W. Lim, president of the American Academy of Dermatology, stated in a news release.
Patients with hidradenitis suppurativa need wound care not only after surgery, to address HS scarring and tunneling from sinus tracts; they also need ongoing wound care for lesions that might be draining, says Dr. Afsaneh Alavi, assistant professor of dermatology at University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada.
There are different aspects of wound healing in HS patients, says Alavi, who presented on wound healing and the HS patient at the March 2017 annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in Orlando, Florida.

In an effort to gain insight into the preferred approach to the treatment of infantile hemangiomas, Dr. Robert G. Keller from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, and colleagues reviewed the current literature and evaluated the results of a review of 86 patients with infantile hemangiomas of the nose treated from 1999 to 2015. The researchers found that the literature from the era prior to propranolol approval supported early use of oral or intralesional corticosteroids; in cases of unacceptable outcome these should be followed by surgery or pulsed-dye laser.

It's one of the most common immune-mediated diseases in the U.S., causing red, patchy and scaly marks on the skin. Yet the 1 to 2 percent of the population who have psoriasis are still left to wonder why.
A new study builds on the genetic architecture of psoriasis, the next step toward answering what in the genes causes the disease. University of Michigan researchers, working with partners across the globe, published the work in Nature Communications. It's the most recent publication in long-standing psoriasis work at University of Michigan.
Rebecca Hockaday has never been one to sweat the small stuff.
So, back in 2012, when the then 35-year old noticed a new spot on her breast, she didn't think much of it.
"It literally looked a like colored freckle," Hockaday remembers. "There was just one, and then two, and I had a bunch more that showed up all at once. And that's when I thought, 'Okay, this is time.'"
The mother of two boys went to a dermatologist, who biopsied her the skin on her breast and quickly sent Hockaday to Emory's Winship Cancer Institute.
That's where she was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer or IBC.

In a case report published online in The Journal of Dermatology, gnathostomiasis caused by ingestion of raw roe from Oncorhynchus masou ishikawae is described.
Mika Yamanaka, from the Osaka City University Graduate School of Medicine in Japan, and colleagues describe the case of a 57-year-old Japanese man who presented with an itchy migrating eruption on his back. Three weeks after catching and eating the roe of Oncorhynchus masou, he noticed right inguinal pain and erythema. An itchy erythema subsequently developed on the right abdomen and moved to the upper back.
A postoperative drug regimen including cyclosporine after autologous noncultured melanocyte-keratinocyte cell transplant resulted in rapid and uniform repigmentation without any perilesional halo in patients with localized, stable vitiligo, according to study results published in Dermatologic Surgery.

As rates of skin cancer, or melanoma, rise for men and women in the United States, health experts are debating the effectiveness of annual total body examinations in helping to detect the disease in its earlier stages. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States.
Routine full body exams for skin cancer are not usually part of the annual physical exams performed by primary care providers and nondermatology specialists.
