A dermatologist in Washington, D.C., was surprised to discover that one of her patients was using a powerful steroid cream bought without a prescription to treat a rash.
It turns out that the patient and the patient's family, who are from Africa, bought the cream, called Funbact-A, at a local store focused on African goods. It contained betamethasone, a high-strength steroid sold only by prescription in the U.S. Though high-dose steroids are often used to treat skin conditions, they can cause problems including skin atrophy, acne, severe rashes, infections and systemic reactions.
Squamous cell carcinomas of the lip, tongue and floor of the mouth are each associated with unique expressions. Yet, they share one key factor: They disproportionately affect men. Researchers suggest this may be due to high tobacco use in this group as smoking is associated with 75 percent of these three squamous cell carcinomas.
Retinoids are the preferred initial and maintenance therapy for most acne patients, except those planning a pregnancy or with a strong history of skin sensitivity to topical irritants, according to Dr. Michael Kolodney, dermatology chief, West Virginia University School of Medicine, Morgantown, West Virginia.
Hopefully, at this point in our conversation about sun protection and skin cancer risks, we can all agree that using tanning beds is a dangerous move. But to make matters worse, a new study finds that a shocking number of tanning salons in the U.S. are breaking a major law surrounding tanning safety.

Even though men use tanning beds at lower rates than women, men who tan tend to do it in riskier ways, according to a study by researchers at the University of Connecticut. The findings should help public health officials rethink how, and to whom, they're targeting anti-tanning messages.
Almost anywhere you go, it can be difficult to find someone without a tattoo.
But doctors want people to know that tattoos could give you an infection, maybe even 15 years after you got the tattoo.
It can be difficult to pick just the right design for your tattoo, and unfortunately Loren Siegel regrets her choice.
"I got a tattoo on my 22nd birthday and didn't really put a lot of thought into it,” said Siegel.
She's now getting her tattoo removed, for aesthetics, but after recent research, also for health reasons.
"There is the potential risk there and it really didn't occur to me until I was older, so I think just getting it so young that none of that really crossed my mind,” said Siegel.
Dr. Heidi Prather at Westlake Dermatology in Austin, Teas, said your body starts fighting the ink as soon as you get a tattoo.
Health-food-inspired beauty potions can be a little absurd. But turmeric-laced skin care isn't that. Studies have shown that curcumin, a chemical compound found in turmeric, can decrease UV damage (it's a natural antioxidant) and clear up acne (it's also antibacterial) when applied to skin. It may also reduce collagen breakdown when taken orally, says Rachel Nazarian, a dermatologist in New York City. In fact, we know several dermatologists who take a turmeric supplement every morning. "It can prevent conditions — from skin redness and hair loss to cardiovascular disease — caused by inflammation," says Kavita Mariwalla, a dermatologist in West Islip, New York. She's a believer — she pops a 500-milligram pill daily. Below are nine beauty products that utilize power the goldenrod spice.

How do you know someone is a vegan? Don't worry, they'll tell you. That's the old joke, of course. As it turns out, even if they don't announce it, their clear, luminous skin might. For a long time, dermatologists struggled to prove what their vegan patients suspected and science is finally catching on to. "The rates of hormonal acne I see have gone up so much," says Miami dermatologist Dr. S. Manjula Jegasothy. "It's all coming from the hormones that the animals we eat are being fed or injected with." Non-organic hamburgers and chicken can cause hormone imbalances that really get the oil glands going, which means breakouts and the massive cystic honkers that everyone hates.
