41. A novel mechanism for improvement of dry skin by dietary milk phospholipids: Effect on epidermal covalently bound ceramides and skin inflammation in hairless mice. (PubMed)

A novel mechanism for improvement of dry skin by dietary milk phospholipids: Effect on epidermal covalently bound ceramides and skin inflammation in hairless mice. Dietary milk phospholipids (MPLs) increase hydration of the stratum corneum and reduced transepidermal water loss (TEWL) in hairless mice fed a standard diet. However, the mechanism by which MPLs improve skin barrier functions has yet to be established.This study was designed to examine the mechanism by which MPLs may affect (...) covalently bound ceramides and markers of skin inflammation and improve the skin barrier defect in hairless mice fed a magnesium-deficient (HR-AD) diet.Four-week-old female hairless mice were randomized into four groups (n=10/group), and fed a standard (control) diet, the HR-AD diet, the HR-AD diet supplemented with either 7.0 g/kg MPLs (low [L]-MPL) or 41.0 g/kg MPLs (high [H]-MPL).Dietary MPLs improved the dry skin condition of hairless mice fed the HR-AD diet. MPLs significantly increased

42. Differential Changes in the Peptidergic and Non-Peptidergic Skin Innervation in Rat Models for Inflammation, Dry Skin Itch and Dermatitis. (PubMed)

Differential Changes in the Peptidergic and Non-Peptidergic Skin Innervation in Rat Models for Inflammation, Dry Skin Itch and Dermatitis. Skin innervation is a dynamic process that may lead to changes in nerve fiber density during pathological conditions. We have investigated changes in epidermal nerve fiber density in three different rat models that selectively produce chronic itch (the dry skin model), or itch and inflammation (the dermatitis model), or chronic inflammation without itch (...) was not increased, except for a small but significant increase in the dry skin model. Chronic inflammation showed an increased density of peptidergic fibers without itch, indicating that increased nerve fiber density is not invariably associated with itch. The finding that different types of skin pathology induced differential changes in nerve fiber density may be used as a diagnostic tool in humans, through skin biopsies, to identify different types of pathology and to monitor the effect of therapies.

45. Scabies PCR with standardized dry swab sampling Easy tool for cluster diagnosis of human scabies. (PubMed)

Scabies PCR with standardized dry swab sampling Easy tool for cluster diagnosis of human scabies. Expert visualization of Sarcoptes scabiei remains essential for diagnosing human scabies but access to experts can be difficult. PCR is a very specific tool for the detection and confirmation of Sarcoptes scabiei but this test has a poor sensitivity because of the requirement of previous expertise when collecting appropriate samples to gain a positive result.Evaluate PCR as a diagnostic method (...) for scabies using non expert-dependent standardized sampling.The dry swab was systematically rubbed across the front of both wrists, the eight interdigital spaces and on any suspected scabies lesions in all patients referred for scabies. A new PCR-based diagnostic test was run on the samples. All patients underwent clinical and dermoscopic examination. Scabies diagnosis was confirmed when dermoscopic examination was positive or the patient had typical clinical signs of scabies.Of 183 suspected scabies

47. Tinea Cruris Skin Infection - Guidelines for Prescribing Topical Antifungals

treatment for tinea infections: Skin should be kept dry to help stop infection from spreading. Avoid rubbing or scratching lesions. Use a hair dryer on cool setting to dry the affected area. Wear loose fitting, cotton clothing or moisture absorbing synthetics. Launder items used by infected person separately and often. Use of non-medicated powders may help absorb moisture. Do not use cornstarch or powders that contain cornstarch as these may provide nourishment for the tinea organisms. The main cause (...) of tinea cruris is transfer of the microorganism from the patient's feet. This can occur while changing after exercise, swimming or bathing. Instruct patient to fully dry feet and put on socks before undergarments, especially after using a public change room. 2.

48. Volunteer trials of a novel improvised dry decontamination protocol for use during mass casualty incidents as part of the UK'S Initial Operational Response (IOR). (PubMed)

Volunteer trials of a novel improvised dry decontamination protocol for use during mass casualty incidents as part of the UK'S Initial Operational Response (IOR). Previous studies have demonstrated that rapid evacuation, disrobing and emergency decontamination can enhance the ability of emergency services and acute hospitals to effectively manage chemically-contaminated casualties. The purpose of this human volunteer study was to further optimise such an "Initial Operational Response" by (1 (...) ) identifying an appropriate method for performing improvised skin decontamination and (2) providing guidance for use by first responders and casualties. The study was performed using two readily available, absorbent materials (paper towels and incontinence pads). The decontamination effectiveness of the test materials was measured by quantifying the amount of a chemical warfare agent simulant (methyl salicylate) removed from each volunteer's forearm skin.

49. Evaluation of absorbent materials for use as ad hoc dry decontaminants during mass casualty incidents as part of the UK's Initial Operational Response (IOR). (PubMed)

cleansing of the skin with dry absorbent materials has previously been identified as a potential means of facilitating emergency decontamination. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the in vitro oil and water absorbency of a range of materials commonly found in the domestic and clinical environments and to determine the effectiveness of a small, but representative selection of such materials in skin decontamination, using an established ex vivo model. Five contaminants were used in the study (...) : methyl salicylate, parathion, diethyl malonate, phorate and potassium cyanide. In vitro measurements of water and oil absorbency did not correlate with ex vivo measurements of skin decontamination. When measured ex vivo, dry decontamination was consistently more effective than a standard wet decontamination method ("rinse-wipe-rinse") for removing liquid contaminants. However, dry decontamination was ineffective against particulate contamination. Collectively, these data confirm that absorbent

52. Oral supplementation with fish oil reduces dryness and pruritus in the acetone-induced dry skin rat model. (PubMed)

Oral supplementation with fish oil reduces dryness and pruritus in the acetone-induced dry skin rat model. Pruritus and discomfort are often present in patients with xerosis and atopic dermatitis. Several studies suggest an important role of diet in skin pathophysiology.This study evaluated the effect of dietary fatty acids in the skin physiology via an itch-related animal model with and without supplementation with fish oil (FO), a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), especially omega (...) 3 (n-3).Male Wistar rats were divided into two groups-non-supplemented (control) and supplemented with FO (3g/kg/day) by gavage for 90 days. Every 30 days, scratching and skin parameters (transepidermal water loss (TEWL), hydration, and local blood flow) were evaluated before and after dorsal skin exposure to acetone to induce the itch-related dry skin. At the end of the study, animals were sacrificed, and skin samples collected for fatty acids composition analysis by GC-FID.FO supplementation

53. Reducing Facial Wrinkle Size and Increasing Skin Firmness Using Skin Care Polymers. (PubMed)

Reducing Facial Wrinkle Size and Increasing Skin Firmness Using Skin Care Polymers. Many cosmetic polymers shrink on drying, producing a tensile force if coated on a substrate. This tensile force can be used to smoothen wrinkles and pores in facial skin. In this study, we evaluated two polymers, a polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) and a polyacrylate, for skin tightening properties. We conducted a double-blinded, placebo-controlled and randomized clinical study with 32 female volunteers aged 35-65 (...) years who perceived themselves to have a loss of skin elasticity. Both polymers were formulated in a model cosmetic emulsion with hydrogenated polyisobutene as the oil phase. We measured skin firmness and tightening parameters at baseline and after each product application. Also, facial images were recorded with a fringe projection instrument. The firming measurements indicated that both polymers instantly tightened facial skin, whereas the placebo product offered no significant tightening benefit

59. A cleanser based on sodium laureth carboxylate and alkyl carboxylates washes facial sebum well but does not induce dry skin. (PubMed)

A cleanser based on sodium laureth carboxylate and alkyl carboxylates washes facial sebum well but does not induce dry skin. Because excess sebum and/or metabolites of sebum induce skin problems, cleansers that can remove those kinds of sebum are sought after. However, many people, especially who have little facial sebum, are afraid to wash off sebum well because that may induce dry skin. This concern may be caused by the result that cleansers with a high cleansing ability tend to decrease (...) dry skin were assigned randomly to two groups: one group used AEC/soap-based cleanser while the other group kept using their usual facial cleanser twice a day for 4 weeks in the winter season.Using a colored artificial sebum mixture, it was demonstrated that this cleanser washed sebum well. Following usage of this cleanser, their dry skin improved rather than worsen which was indicated by instrumental analysis and visual assessment. These improvements were recognized by subjects.These results

Children with Dry Skin and Atopic Predisposition: Daily Use of Emollients in a Participant-Blinded, Randomized, Prospective Trial. Dry skin reflects a skin barrier defect which can lead to atopic dermatitis. Little is known about the distinct effects of emollient use in children with dry skin and atopic predisposition.We investigated the effects of daily application of pressed ice plant juice (PIPJ)-based emollients and petrolatum-based emollients.Children aged 2-6 years with dry skin (...) transepidermal water loss values at week 16 on the forearm and forehead. A significant decrease in skin pH was noted in group 2 on the forearm and forehead; group 1 showed a stable course.Early intervention with emollients in children with dry skin condition and atopic predisposition may improve their skin condition during daily emollient application. PIPJ-based formulations may be helpful to maintain skin barrier integrity.
