Pulsed electrical fields may provide improved skin rejuvenation
Medical News Today
A new approach to skin rejuvenation developed at Massachusetts General Hospital may be less likely to have unintended side effects, such as scarring and altered pigmentation. In the online journal Scientific Reports, an MGH research team reports that treatment with pulsed electric fields — a noninvasive procedure that does not involve the generation of heat — removed skin cells in an animal model without affecting the supporting extracellular matrix, eventually leading to renewal of the skin surface.

Eczema is incurable, and many treatments designed to manage it are not very effective.

Can daily aspirin put the brakes on melanoma?
Plastic Surgery Practice
Daily aspirin may rein in melanoma's aggressive nature, new research suggests. In the study, which appears in the June issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, researchers reviewed the records of 148 melanoma patients and identified 39 individuals who took aspirin every day for at least one month at any time before their diagnosis. Those who took aspirin had significantly thinner tumors than those who didn't use aspirin, indicating that it may protect against melanoma advancement.

This was two days after my leg began to itch and what I thought was a bug bite actually turned out to be a dark mole that was bleeding. Moles shouldn't bleed. Coincidentally, this happened right after the CDC reported that the rates of melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer, have doubled in the past 30 years.
