Athlete's Foot

Personal CareJeremy Mascarenas

Athlete's foot or tinea pedis is a parasitic fungal infection of the epidermis of the foot. It is typically caused by a mold (but in some cases a yeast) that grows on the surface of the skin and then grows into the living skin tissue itself, causing infection. It usually occurs betwwen the toes, but in severely lasting cases may appear as an extensive "moccasin" pattern on the bottom and sides of the foot. Tinea pedis is estimated to be the second most common skin disease in the United states, after acne.

Athlete's Foot causes scaling, flaking, and itching of the affected skin and areas surrounding. Blisters and cracked skin may also occur, leading to exposed raw tissue, pain, swelling and inflammation. The infection can be spread to other areas of the body, such as the armpits, knees, elbows, and the groin, and usually is called by a different name once it spreads (such as tinea cruris, or jock itch for an infection of the skin or groin area).

One ingredient of Dr. Ku's has an anti-fungal property that has been shown to be very effective in treating Athlete's Foot. The anti-histamine property of this medicinal oil also reduces the itch and thus allows the lesions to heal more quickly because if it doesn't itch you don't want to scratch!

Burn Treatments

Burn Treatments, WoundsJeremy Mascarenas

A burn is damage to your body's tissues caused by heat, chemicals, electricity, sunlight, or radiation. However, scalds from hot liquids and steam, building fires, flammable liquids, and gases are the most common causes of burns.

Burns are classified according to how seriously tissue has been damaged. The following system is used:

First Degree: A first degree burn is shown by redness and swelling of the outermost layers of the skin.

Second Degree: A second degree burn involves redness, swelling, and blistering. The damage may extend to deeper layers of the skin.

Third Degree: A third degree burn destroys the entire depth of the skin. It can also damage fat, muscle, organs, or bone beneath the skin. Significant scarring is common, and death can occur in the most severe cases.

The treatment options for a burn depend on how serious it is.

Minor burns can usually be treated at home or in a doctor's office. A minor burn is defined as a first or second degree burn that covers less than 15 percent of an adults body or 10 percent of a child's body.

Moderate burns should be treated in a hospital. Moderate burns are first or second degree burns that cover more of a patients body or a third degree burn that covers less than 10 percent of the Body Surface Area (BSA).

Major burns should be treated in special burn-treatment facilities. These burns are third degree burns that cover more than 10 percent of the BSA. Specialized equipment and methods are used to treat these burns.

RosaceaJeremy MascarenasComment

Research has indicated that Rosacea is caused by a parasite, a tiny mite that lives in your pores and hair follicles. They reproduce in the nose, cheeks, chin, and sometimes in the roots of the eyelashes. Rosacea can also go into the scalp. This tiny mite, with the name Domedex Falliculorum, has a worm-like appearance with legs and a tail.

Inflammation and infection often result when large numbers of these mites congregate in a single follicle. The mite lives head down in a follicle, feeding on secretions and dead skin. The female may lay up to 25 eggs in a single follicle. As they become tightly packed, they leave the follicle, mate, and find a new follicle. This takes anywhere from 14 to 18 days.

This mite has been associated with acne, dermatitis, irritated dry skin, sore skin, eczema, skin ulcers, and poorly healing wounds.
