A European Union grant of €1 million (US$1.2 million) is helping the World Health Organization (WHO) to strengthen health services for the nearly one million vulnerable Rohingyas and their host communities in Cox’s Bazar, who remain at risk of disease outbreaks, said WHO.
Eczema can appear anywhere on the body, including the outside of the ear or inside the ear canal. People with ear eczema may notice dry, flaky skin in or around their ears. This symptom may develop after contact with specific triggers, such as beauty products or metal jewelry.
Ear eczema may lead to infection and inflammation of the ear canal, called acute otitis externa. Using a range of treatment and prevention methods, people can often reduce ear eczema symptoms and flares.
Type 1 diabetes is caused by the abnormal behavior of the human body’s immune system. In type 1 diabetes, the immune system perceives insulin-generating cells as intruders. In response, antibodies are created to destroy these cells.
The targeted cells are called Beta cells and are generated by the pancreas. Diabetes Type 1 is considered a chronic metabolic condition that is generally linked to genetic complications. The disease is often diagnosed in children as their immune system is not well-developed yet.
For those who suffer from acne, current pimples aren’t always the problem, often it’s the scarring that’s left behind that can leave many of us feeling less than confident rocking a bare face. Acne scarring occurs because infected material from follicles within the skin spills out causing inflammation and damage to the dermis of the skin.
When the dermis is injured, the response is fibrosis, which is a complex process involving the deposition of collagen and other proteins. The combination of damage or thinning to the dermal layer of the skin and fibrosis causes acne scarring.
According to a study, researchers examine a series of illustrations and charts designed as decision aids for parents of children with minor head injuries helped them communicate with emergency medicine physicians and make informed decisions about their child's care.

Being depressed can negatively affect your appetite and our latest study, a systematic review of the best available evidence, found a clear link between the quality of a person's diet and their risk of depression. And it goes beyond the effect of diet on body size or other aspects of health that can affect mental health.
An international clinical trial that studied wearable cardioverter defibrillators (WCDs) found that the devices did not significantly reduce sudden cardiac death the primary goal of the device among patients assigned to the device in the first 90 days after a heart attack, but did lower mortality among those who wore it as prescribed, according to a study led by researchers at UC San Francisco.
The devices, which consist of highly sensitive tests that can deliver an electric shock when the heart beats out of rhythm, are designed to provide medical intervention around the clock for patients who have had a heart attack and are at further risk of death due to arrhythmia. The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).
Researchers have developed a new simple blood test that can tell the time in your body which might be very different from the time showing on the clock on the wall. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
