Multiyear Group and Medical Center Patch Test Frequency Data: Confounding Variables.

Dermatitis 2021 Jun 9. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

From the Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, University of California San Francisco Medical School.

Patch test frequency data have been extensively published by research groups, such as the International Contact Dermatitis Research Group, North American Contact Dermatitis Group, Dermato-Allergology Study and Research Group, and European Environmental Contact Dermatitis Research Group. As this knowledge accumulation is widely applied in clinical and public health settings, we describe confounding factors to consider when using such data for medical policy considerations. These concepts can also be used in individual reports of new allergens or series of cases. Read More

Developments in silicone technology for use in stoma care.

Br J Nurs 2021 Mar;30(Sup8):7-18

Technical Director, Trio Healthcare.

Soft silicone's flexibility, adhesive capacity and non-toxic, non-odourous and hypoallergenic nature have made it an established material for adhesive and protective therapeutic devices. In wound care, silicone is a component of contact layer dressings for superficial wounds and silicone gel sheeting for reducing the risk of scarring, as well as of barriers for incontinence-associated dermatitis. Regarding stoma accessories, silicone is established in barrier films to prevent contact dermatitis, adhesive removers to prevent skin stripping and filler gels to prevent appliance leaks. Read More

Br J Community Nurs 2021 Jun;26(Sup6):S26-S33

Senior Tissue Viability Nurse and Clinical Operational programme improvement Lead, Welsh Wound Innovation Centre.

This article discusses the effects of ageing on the skin, particularly the main structural and functional changes that occur in the epidermis and dermis that make the skin more vulnerable to damage. Specific alterations that occur with ageing include slower epidermal turnover, flattening of the epidermal-dermal junction, loss of moisture and hydration as well as reduced immunity placing the skin at increased risk of damage. The discussion will also examine common periwound complications associated with ageing including; maceration, excoriation, dry skin, hyperkeratosis, callus, contact dermatitis and eczema. Read More

It may present with bizarre patterns and linear streaks due to a phototoxic agent splashing onto various cutaneous sites; thus, it affects the skin at points of contact and exposure to UV light. Individuals typically experience symptoms within 24 hours of exposure. Read More

Throughout life, it is necessary to adapt to the Earth's environment in order to survive. A typical example of this is that the daily Earth cycle is different from the circadian rhythm in human beings; however, the ability to adapt to the Earth cycle has contributed to the development of human evolution. In addition, humans can consume and digest Earth-derived foods and use luxury materials for nutrition and enrichment of their lives, as an adaptation to the Earth's environment. Read More
