Research from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found black children with eczema were 30 percent less likely to see a doctor for their eczema than white children. The study, published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, also found black children who see a doctor about the condition have more visits and receive more prescriptions than white children, indicating more severe disease.

As more men desire a full head of hair, a robotics hair-transplant company is seeking to capitalize on that insecurity.
Restoration Robotics filed to go public with a price range of $7 to $9 a share, which would give the company a valuation of up to $25 million. By selling 3.12 million shares of stock, the company would raise up to $28 million.
The company has applied to list on the Nasdaq Global Market under the symbol "HAIR."
National Securities Corp. is the lead underwriter on the offering. The underwriters have the option of selling an additional 468,750 additional shares.
Here's what to know before the company goes public.
