Spider veins, or telangiectasia, are small clusters of veins that appear as thin reddish blue lines near the surface of the skin. Areas of the body most affected by these spider-web-looking veins are the legs, hands, neck and face, particularly around the nose, cheeks, and chin. Most spider veins are harmless but some can cause pain, burning or aching. 

When found on the face or neck, many people find them unsightly and wish to get rid of them.

 

Treating eczema, a condition whose cause remains unclear, can turn out to be a rather sensitive topic.

For one thing, most over-the-counter and doctor-prescribed treatments for eczema have been proven to be ineffective – not to mention expensive and laced with side effects.

That being said, it’s important to know how to prevent the evolution of mild cases of eczema and alleviate the pain caused by the more severe ones.

Eczema Treatment Tips for Adults

The truth is modern medicine still can’t pinpoint exactly what will work for the appearance of eczema rashes on your skin.

 

Why write an entire article on the different types of eczemas?

After all, they’re just rashes that can’t be cured and tend to go away on their own, right? While the above may be true, it’s also true that eczema is an issue for 10-12% of U.S. children and approximately 3% of adults. The drop in percentage of people affected is explicable through the fact that most children born with eczema will outgrow it by age 10.

Is there a connection between diet and wrinkled skin? Are there anti-aging foods that are good for your skin?

Ever heard the saying: “Don’t ask a question if you are not prepared to hear the answer”?

The other side of that coin is: “Don’t illicit a question if you don’t have the answer”.

For the past 20 years, many of our patients have asked about their diets, “are there such a thing as anti-aging foods that will help keep my skin healthy?”

 

We call them rashes and eczemas. Some are caused by genetics, others by lifestyle factors, and many are linked with allergies. Most are treated with the aid of topical corticosteroids and constant skin moisturizing.

Yet, after all is said and done,  how much do we really know about the different types of dermatitis out there? What are they? What causes them? Can they be prevented? Read on, to learn more about the seven most often encountered types of dermatitis.

 

Rosacea… WOW…. What a confusing and tangled story!

At AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare, where we specialize in Laser and Integrative Medicine, we have treated thousands of patients with rosacea over the past 20 years.  

We have used everything to treat rosacea from conventional antibiotics, to the most advanced and expensive medical lasers, to natural rosacea remedies such as exotic herbal and essential oils, to the simplest and most fundamental of all medical treatments, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and ozone therapy.

Rosacea (ro-zay-sha) as its name implies – sounds like “rose” – is simply redness in the skin of a person’s face. It is quite common, affecting over 10 million people in the United States and approximately 45 million worldwide.

Rosacea affects mainly people with pale skin, primarily Caucasians from Irish, Scottish or English descent, though it is not unusual among other white Europeans and a smaller percentage of Asians. Though the disorder is more frequently found in women, the condition tends to be more severe in men.
