Transforming skin: Transgender dermatology
The Huffington Post
For the transgender individual whose misrepresentative outer appearance is at the root of their personal conflict, it may be clear how the skin is a critical component of establishing self-harmony. However, the role of the dermatologist in their care is yet to be determined in the academic literature and subsequently in routine practice, but it seems to always have been evident that dermatologists have a unique perspective on addressing their needs in both a medical and aesthetic manner.

How to improve prescription adherence
Dermatology Times
Lack of patient adherence to prescribed therapies remains a central issue in dermatology and, according to one expert, a multifaceted strategy can improve compliance, leading to improved treatment outcomes. "Mastering the 'perfect' consultation is key in helping patients stick to prescribed treatment regimens. Above and beyond the requisite doctor-patient relationship, it is crucial that the goals of therapy are identified early in the consultation," says Dr. Ravi Ratnavel, a consultant dermatologist at the Buckinghamshire Hospitals NHS Trust, United Kingdom.

Eczema breakthrough: Is blocking nerve cells the key?
Plastic Surgery Practice
Blocking nerve cells may help halt symptoms of eczema, according to research out of the University of California, Berkeley. About 10 percent of the population has eczema at some point in their lives, and the cause is largely unknown. Most research today focuses on the immune system's role in reacting to chemicals that cause itching and inflammation and other downstream consequences. But UC Berkeley neuroscientist Dr. Diana M. Bautista and graduate students discovered that sensory nerves in the skin are the first to react to these chemicals and that blocking these nerve cells may stop eczema in its tracks

It's an incredible ally when it comes to protecting, rejuvenating and even nourishing our skin. And the latest study says that sunscreen does even more, including protecting our body's very own "superhero" gene.

The true origin of Halloween
By John Mosley
Some holidays fall on the same date each year because they commemorate a specific event. Others drift by up to several weeks from year to year. The most familiar example is Easter, which is set as the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox. In ancient times, people didn't have nicely printed calendars to refer to, and they used the sky — especially the motions of the sun and moon — to set important dates. Perhaps surprisingly, Halloween is also a date that is determined astronomically.
