Researchers have identified a subtype of atopic dermatitis (AD) that is more likely to worsen into mid-adulthood and may be linked to poorer physical and mental health.
Researchers have discovered different types of melanocytes, some of which are associated with subtypes of melanoma that predominantly affect people of colour. The authors of the paper predict this discovery may lead to more targeted treatments for melanoma, according to a press release.

She spoke with Dr. Lisa Kellett, dermatologist and founder of DLK on Avenue in Toronto, who detailed how she avoids longer wait times by using the time it takes for topical anesthetics to take effect by educating and checking in with her patients.
A hydrogel has been developed for treating chronic diabetic wounds that accelerates healing by delivering oxygen to the wound. The hydrogel solidifies at body temperature and uses microspheres to gradually releases oxygen into the wound, decreasing inflammation, helping remodel tissue and accelerating healing.
Researchers have found an increased prevalence of skin diseases in Chinese adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), compared to non-diabetic Chinese adults.
