A new study from researchers at King’s College of London has reconfirmed the link between Covid-19 and skin rashes, and has established a sizeable database of curated photographs of Covid-19-related skin issues.
Irritated skin was identified as the top risk factor for hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPI) in critical care patients, according to a new study.
In a new study, researchers have identified the ideal timeline for follow-up phone calls after a patient undergoes Mohs micrographic skin surgery.
A new study has strengthened the association between chilblains or “Covid toes” and Covid-19 infection. Researchers said that the virus was found in the skin biopsies of patients who did not test positive for the virus using throat swabs and antibody measurements.
A new study has identified three types of skin injury caused by use of personal protective equipment (PPE). According to researchers, usage of PPE by medical staff can cause device-related skin pressure injuries, skin damage related to moisture, and skin tear. The first-in-kind study was published online ahead of print in Advances in Wound Care (April 27, 2020).
A new study has found evidence that neuropeptides may be an important factor in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. Though there are well documented genetic and environmental factors for psoriasis evidence that neuropeptides released by the cutaneous nervous system and the skin microbiome influence the development of psoriasis, strengthens the brain-skin connection of the disease, researchers said.
Exposure to ultraviolet radiation causes a pair of specific T cell types in the skin to intervene to suppress inflammation and help the skin repair itself, according to a new study. The study, published online in Clinical & Translational Immunology (Apr. 2, 2020), found that T cells D4+GATA3+ and CD8+GATA3+ are sent to the inflamed area and can affect the area for two weeks.
A new study has found that the bacterial make up of a child’s skin is affected long term by the mode of birth. The study, published online ahead of print in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (August 8, 2019) looked at children up to the age of 10 years old to determine how their mode of birth may affect their skin microbiome.
Pavement in the Southwestern United States can quickly burn human skin when air temperatures exceed 100 F (38 C), according to a new study. The study, which investigated second degree burns caused by hot pavement, was published in the Journal of Burn Care & Research (Jun 21, 2019; 40(4):422-426).
