Eczema Treatment in Malaysia

Have you or your child been diagnosed with eczema? I would have assumed that you have read a lot of articles on the internet but whatever you are using, your eczema is not getting better?

Do continue reading to understand more on this skin condition known as eczema. The following is an excerpt from WebMD:
How Is Eczema Treated?

The goal of treatment for eczema is to relieve and prevent itching, which can lead to infection. Since the disease makes skin dry and itchy, lotions and creams are recommended to keep the skin moist. These products are usually applied when the skin is damp, such as after bathing, to help the skin retain moisture. Cold compresses may also be used to relieve itching.

Over-the-counter products, such as hydrocortisone 1% cream, or prescription creams and ointments containing corticosteroids, are often prescribed to lessen inflammation. In addition, if the affected area becomes infected, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics to kill the infection-causing bacteria.


Eating practices of the best endurance athletes in the world

It's strange, but true: The nutritional practices of the best endurance athletes in the world have not been carefully studied.

Those "best endurance athletes" are clearly the Kenyan runners. Attempting to verify this fact for you is probably unnecessary, but it can at least be noted that one study found that athletes from just one collection of Kenyans, the Kalenjin tribe, had won approximately 40 percent of all major international middle- and long-distance running competitions in the 10-year period from 1987 to 1997.  In addition, approximately half of all of the male athletes in the world who have ever run the 10K in less than 27 minutes hail from Kenya. When they're allowed to enter freely, Kenyan athletes dominate road races around the world... Read more:

Reducing the pain of health-care costs

Hefty health-care costs have become a global concern, including in Singapore. Worldwide, countries struggle to contain them. Patients and families, too, are concerned. In Singapore, a lot of attention has been focused recently on the role of doctors in driving up health-care costs through their fees. While doctors certainly influence health-care costs, they are not solely, or even primarily, responsible for them.   Other contributors include technology such as drugs, medical equipment, implants; consumables such as nappies, dressings or intravenous drips; professional fees given not just to doctors but also therapists, dieticians, nurses and to cover hospital administration, laboratory tests such as radiological investigations; and facility fees for use of hospital rooms and operating theaters.

'I had no idea my tween was anorexic'

I never considered my daughter Mimi fat. She was fleshy, maybe, as all growing kids tend to be, but not overweight. However, Mimi felt she wasn't as thin as her schoolmates, even though she was 33kg, a healthy weight for a 10-year-old. And so began her journey into anorexia nervosa - a potentially life-threatening eating disorder... See more at:

Nine Celebrities Who Are Itching For Eczema Awareness Month

With roughly 30 million Americans suffering from eczema, it is no surprise that there are celebrities who have been spotted with or have come forth about their own struggle with this itchy, and often aesthetically embarrassing, skin condition. Due to the stigma attached to eczema, the unknowing public who have never been directly affected by it or to the childhood bullying that so commonly occurs, it is reasonable to believe that there are many celebrities affected by eczema who have chosen not to be as open about their condition.

This App Fights Acne!

Ray Bradford is convinced technology will change the way we interact with our doctors. And it starts with an iPhone app that lets you get prescription drugs for your acne.

With Spruce, out today, Bradford’s taking a fresh approach to the strange emerging phenomenon known as telemedicine. The app doesn’t try to pipe appointments over video calls. It doesn’t attempt to put a doctor in your pocket. Instead of doing a bunch of things awkwardly, it aims to treat just one condition–acne–very well.

Which Is Worse — Sugar Or Fat?

UK twins, Alexander and Chris van Tulleken, decided to use their own bodies to figure out which foods are worse: sugars or fats? In a month-long experiment, the 35-year-old brothers challenged themselves, with one giving up sugar and the other giving up fat, to decide which of them would lose the most weight. In the end, they decided that complete elimination of either food item from their diets was probably bad for their health.

Itching for a solution to eczema

Being a parent can be absolutely mystifying. Most of us didn’t study medicine, so it’s so easy to miss the signs that something’s wrong, or confuse one problem with another. Or you might not mention anything to your doctor, as you don’t feel you’ve spotted anything “serious”.

In our case, our little boy was developing eczema, but it took us a while to realise.

He was nine months old when we first noticed changes. He developed what appeared to be scratches in the middle of his back. They looked like thin scars, as if our cat had scratched him. We noticed this on the days he spent at family day care, and wondered if something in that home was affecting him. We were already seeing a paediatrician for our son’s strong reflux, so we asked him to take a look; he suggested grass seeds might be the problem. We asked our day care provider to try to minimise his playtime on the grassy area of…
