There are many different kinds of burns. Burns can be caused by heat, cold, steam, light, radiation, friction, electric, chemicals, the sun, etc. With any type of burn, there is damage to the skin which is, in essence, a wound that needs to be healed and repaired during proper treatment.
Most burns are usually classified into 3 degrees, predicated on the depth of the skin damage. First degree burns are burns that affect the top layer of the skin, for example a blister or sun burn.
Alternative Names: Hypertrophic osteoarthritis; Osteoarthrosis; Degenerative joint disease; DJD; OA; Arthritis-Osteoarthritis.
Unfortunately most of the time, the cause of OA is unknown. It is mainly related to aging, but metabolic, genetic, chemical, and mechanical factors can also lead to OA.
The symptoms of osteoarthritis usually appear in middle age and almost everyone has them by age 70. Before age 55, the condition occurs equally in both sexes.
A coma can be difficult to understand, especially because people sometimes jokingly use the words coma and comatose (say: ko-muh-tohss), which means in a coma or coma-like state) to describe people who aren't paying attention or who are drowsy or sleeping. But a coma is a serious condition that has nothing to do with sleep.
Coma is a state of unconsciousness whereby a patient cannot react with the surrounding environment. The patient cannot be wakened with outside physical or auditory stimulation. The inability to waken differentiates coma from sleep.
Anthrax is an infectious disease caused by spores of the bacterium, Bacillus anthracis. The B. anthracis spores are highly resistant to inactivation and may be present in the soil, for example, for decades, occasionally infecting grazing animals that ingest the spores. Goats, sheep and cattle are examples of animals that may become infected. Human infection may occur by three routes of exposure to anthrax spores: cutaneous (through the skin), gastrointestinal (by ingestion), and pulmonary (inhalation). In North America, human cases of anthrax are infrequent.
Bulimia is an eating disorder. Someone with bulimia might binge on food and then vomit (also called purge) in a cycle of binging and purging. Binge eating refers to quickly eating large amounts of food over short periods of time. Purging involves forced vomiting, laxative use, excessive exercise, or fasting in an attempt to lose weight that might be gained from eating food or binging.
Bulimia, also called bulimia nervosa, is a disorder in the eating disorder spectrum.
Acrochordons is also known as Cutaneous tags. Cutaneous tags are very common, generally benign skin growths that occur most often after midlife. They are tiny skin protrusions, and may have a small narrow stalk connecting the skin bump to the surface of the skin. They are generally painless and do not grow or change, except for occasional irritation resulting from rubbing by clothing or other friction .
The surface of the skin tags may be irregular or smooth in appearance. Sometimes they are raised from the surface of the skin on a fleshy stalk called a peduncle.
Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder that has been recognized throughout recorded history. It affects about 1 percent of Americans.
People with schizophrenia may hear voices other people don't hear or they may believe that others are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them. These experiences are terrifying and can cause fearfulness, withdrawal, or extreme agitation.
Skin Parasites that make your skin crawl are here to stay. They appear to itch from under your skin and are impervious to all standard medical treatments. Elimite and Quill will give you a four day reprieve and then the itching returns and it's relentless. The only thing that helps are hot (almost scalding) baths and then only for a few hours. They are indeed skin parasites from hell.
What's worse is that once you are infected, everything in your environment becomes contaminated or infected with them. You can also be highly contagious.
How does one get these skin parasites?
GERD is a term of condition which is also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease. This common disorder occurs when the stomach contents make their way from the stomach back up from the stomach and into the esophagus. This can root the painful situation known as heartburn, which for many patients can almost feel as if they were having a heart attack. This condition can array from being moderate to so severe that it is even often debilitating. If you feel a burning or inflammation in your chest after you eat then you may be suffering from GERD.
