EEE: What You Should Know

Editor's note: This story was updated Sept. 26, 2019 with an additional death. 

Sept. 25, 2019 -- This is a particularly bad season for the potentially fatal Eastern equine encephalitis -- the rare mosquito-borne EEE that has infected almost 30 people from seven states this year. In the United States, an average of seven EEE cases are reported each year, according to the CDC.

A fourth Massachusetts resident died from the disease, bringing the national death toll to ten. Even though the number of confirmed cases is still very low compared to, for instance, West Nile virus, many governments are urging people to stay indoors or are increasing their mosquito spraying programs. One reason for the concern is that an estimated 30% of people who get EEE die from it.

WebMD talked to William Schaffner, MD, an infectious diseases specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, about the infection, its effect on the body, and how to avoid it:

WebMD: What makes EEE so dangerous?

Schaffner: This is a virus that does not normally infect humans. When it gets into people, it is a very nasty infection. It has an attraction to the central nervous system, especially the brain. When it gets to the brain, it destroys brain cells. It creates an inflammatory response, which causes fluid to get around the brain. The brain is encased by the skull, so it can't expand, causing increased pressure, which compromises brain function.

WebMD: Why are there more cases this year?

Schaffner: We're not entirely sure. Let's put it into context: This is a pretty unusual infection in humans. The virus circulates among wild birds and is transmitted by mosquitoes. It lives in that ecologic niche, particularly swampy water. That's its habitat. It's been an infection largely on the Gulf Coast and East Coast. Occasionally, a different mosquito species gets in the middle of this -- one species that will bite both horses and humans, so infections can occur in those species.

It has raised speculation about climate change. One of the things that will happen, if you get a wetter and warmer climate and more prolonged seasonal warmth, you get more mosquitoes. That's an increased opportunity to exploit this ecologic niche. The military calls it collateral damage -- you get infection in horses, and in people -- species that are not usually part of the virus ecology.

Can Aspirin Help Tackle Some Cancers?

By Alan Mozes

MONDAY, Sept. 23, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Low-dose aspirin may improve survival odds for patients battling head/neck and lung cancer, two new studies suggest.

The first reviewed data on 460 patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) or early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

That study concluded that taking a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as low-dose aspirin, along with standard radiation therapy or chemotherapy, increased five-year survival by 8%.

The second study focused on 164 patients who underwent a precise, high-dose form of radiation for NSCLC. Of those, 57% who also took aspirin reached the two-year survival mark, compared to 48% of others.

Both studies were led by Dr. Anurag Singh, a professor of oncology at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo, N.Y.

Both studies were presented earlier this month at the annual meeting of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiation Oncology in Chicago. Research presented at meetings is typically considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.

"We were especially interested to see that these patients lived longer even though the anti-inflammatory drugs did not seem to have an impact on the effectiveness of cancer treatment," said a co-author of the first study, Dr. Austin Iovoli, who is serving a residency at Roswell Park's Department of Supportive Care.

Dr. Gregory Hermann, a resident physician at Roswell Park, was part of the second study team.

"These studies provide further support for a growing body of literature that demonstrates a benefit for use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, by cancer patients," he added in a cancer center news release.

"Although clinical trials are needed to make a definitive recommendation, we encourage patients to have a discussion with their doctor regarding the risks and potential benefits of aspirin use," he said.

Only a Third of Pregnant Women Get Needed Vaccines


TUESDAY, Oct. 8, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- About two-thirds of pregnant women in the United States don't get vaccinated against both flu and whooping cough, putting them and their newborns at risk, a new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

"Influenza and pertussis (or whooping cough) are serious infections that can be deadly for babies, especially those who are too young to be vaccinated directly," Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC, said in a news briefing on Tuesday.

But when women receive these vaccines during pregnancy, they pass along antibodies to the fetus that then provide protection during the time newborns are too young to be vaccinated.

The vaccines also benefit expectant mothers, Schuchat stressed.

"Women who are pregnant are more than twice as likely to be hospitalized if they develop influenza, compared with similar-aged women during influenza season," she said.

But as the new CDC report found, only a minority of pregnant American women are getting the shots they need.

The agency surveyed nearly 2,100 women aged 18 to 49 who were pregnant between August 2018 and April 2019. Of those, 54% said they got a flu shot before or during pregnancy, and 55% were vaccinated for whooping cough while pregnant.

That could mean more pregnant women becoming very ill, the report also found.

Looking at data on all 15- to 44-year-old women who were hospitalized due to flu since 2010, between 24% and 34% were pregnant, the CDC study found, even though only 9% of U.S. women in this age group are pregnant at any given time each year.

"Women have enough issues to address when they're pregnant without going through a difficult hospitalization if they come down with influenza," Schuchat said.

In total, only about 35% of women received both vaccinations during pregnancy, the CDC said.

Dr. Laura Riley, an obstetrician and gynecologist-in-chief at NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine, in New York City, said, "The numbers are much lower than they should be and it is disappointing given the benefits for moms and babies associated with these vaccines." She said the numbers may be low because they came from an online survey that depended on patient recall.

More Hot Flashes Could Mean Higher Odds for Heart Trouble

By Kayla McKiski

TUESDAY, Sept. 24, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Women, if you're bothered by frequent hot flashes, it may be more than a mere annoyance.

New research offers evidence that frequent or persistent hot flashes are linked to higher odds of heart attack and stroke. The finding stems from a 20-year study of about 3,300 women during menopause.

Of those women, 231 had a heart attack, stroke or heart failure.

Women who had frequent hot flashes had twice the risk of heart trouble during the study, researchers found. And those who had persistent hot flashes had an 80% higher risk over 20 years.

"The [heart events] were not explained by things like blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, exercise or smoking, which are our usual suspects," said lead author Rebecca Thurston, director of the Women's Biobehavioral Health Program at the University of Pittsburgh.

Much more remains to be learned, Thurston said.

Next up: Understanding the underlying mechanisms that link hot flashes to heart disease risk. Researchers also want to find out whether treating hot flashes has any impact on women's heart health as they age.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for American women, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

About 75% of women report experiencing hot flashes (intense warmth, bouts of sweating) as their monthly periods become infrequent and finally stop, according to the North American Menopause Society.

"We don't know the exact cause of hot flashes, but it relates to a part of the brain that regulates temperature," said Dr. Stephanie Faubion, the society's medical director. "The range of temperatures where women feel comfortable is narrowed compared to what it was before hot flashes started. Think of it like a broken thermostat."

Not all women who experience hot flashes will develop heart disease, nor are hot flashes a cause of heart disease, experts said.

But menopausal women are still at a greater risk of other preventable chronic diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure.

"Women should understand their individual risks by knowing their numbers [blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose] and by taking action to maintain health," Faubion said.

Forehead Reduction Surgery Is A Thing - We Did It!

Botox and fillers are pretty reg procedures these days and something we often discuss without batting an eyelid – not because it’s not a big deal, but because it’s so common. However, recently a colleague casually mentioned a procedure they were planning to have, which gave us a much more “Wtf?!” response. Literally, we had never heard of hairline-lowering surgery before, and we had just as many questions as you do on hearing that. Our initial response was, what the hell is that? Then, why?!

Our colleague, Carla, told us her forehead had always been an insecurity of hers: “For as long as I can remember I have hated how large my forehead was. My hair was always styled with a side fringe, I would never face the direction of the wind in case it exposed my forehead and I hated that I felt I could never just scrape my hair back off my face.”

Carla was beyond excited to fly to England and have forehead reduction surgery, as terrifying as that seemed to us! Naturally, we supported her decision (Carla was truly doing this surgery for herself, which is very important), and of course, we wanted the full scoop on her hairline-lowering operation, aka foreheadplasty. Carla said she would love to share her journey with us and was more than happy to take before and after pictures! So we’re telling you all about how forehead reduction surgery works with insights from Carla (now two months post-op) and her clinic, the London Bridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Clinic, who shared all the details of the procedure with us.

We spoke to Carla’s doctor, Dr. Christopher Inglefield, who performed the hairline-lowering surgery, and we asked him all our burning questions about the surgery.

First of all, how far can you lower the hairline?

“This is something that varies from individual to individual. Factors that would contribute to how far we can advance the hairline include the laxity of the individual’s scalp, if the individual has ongoing/has had previous hair loss. As well as these factors, the patient’s individual goals and expectations are important,” Dr. Inglefield explained.

Carla’s final result was a reduction of her forehead by 3 cms. 

How does Forehead Reduction Surgery work?

“Foreheadplasty, Hairline-Lowering Surgery normally takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to perform depending on the complexity of the surgery. It is done under general anesthetic as a day-case procedure.”

Step 1: After washing the hair, Dr. Inglefield injects local anesthetic to the area, which helps to reduce bleeding during the procedure, this also helps with pain control postoperatively.

Step 2: A zig-zag incision is made along the hairline (this helps to minimize scarring).

Step 3: The scalp is mobilized to the back of the head and pulled forward as much as needed.

Step 4: Two small endotine devices [tiny implants] are placed under the scalp, which are often described as ‘carpet grippers’. These are made from a dissolving suture material and should dissolve away within the first three to four months following surgery. These help to keep the scalp in place as it heals.

Step 5: A section of the forehead skin at the hairline is removed. Dr. Inglefield then sprays a tissue glue, Artiss, to hold the scalp in place. This helps to reduce fluid buildup underneath the scalp as well as to reduce the risk of the scalp sliding backward during the healing process.

Step 6: The incision is closed using deep dissolving stitches and non-dissolving stitches externally along the incision. The non-dissolving stitches are removed in the clinic after 10 days.

Below is footage of Carla’s surgery filmed by the London Bridge Plastic Surgery Clinic, which they shared on their Snapchat account. We have blurred the footage due to the graphic nature of it, but we have kept the sound and captions as it illustrates the full process of the surgery. Please be warned, the content in the video is graphic.

How long is the downtime?

Apparently, moderate pain or discomfort is expected for three to five days after surgery, and patients can go back to their normal daily activities after one to two weeks, excluding intense exercise or contact sports, which should be avoided for at least six weeks post-op.

Carla told us she actually felt fine the next day, “It wasn’t painful at all! This is probably due to the pain medication they prescribed, but even with that, I was expecting to be in pain considering the nature of the operation. The only time I felt real pain was exactly one week after the operation. The pain wasn’t on my scalp oddly enough, it was between my eyebrows and felt like I had a huge weight resting on there. This only lasted a few hours.”

Carla kept us posted with updates on the surgery while she was in the UK.

Will there be visible scarring?

“The incisions are placed in the natural hairline to be as hidden as possible,” Dr. Inglefield tells us, and it’s for this reason that he makes a zig-zag incision, as this allows for the scar to fade more naturally into the hairline as it heals. “These incisions heal well in seven to 10 days and continue to fade over time. A scar will not become completely invisible, although over eight to 12 months it will become more inconspicuous as redness is reduced and pigmentation returns to normal skin color.”

Two months after her surgery, Carla’s scar has healed to a point that you wouldn’t notice it. Carla told us “The scar has healed really well, I’m really happy with it! I continue to massage the ointment provided by the clinic into the incision area daily and I make sure I put SPF on it so it doesn’t darken in the Dubai sunshine! You can’t notice the scar it as it is hidden really well.” Carla has been using the SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Anti-Oxidant Serum, $166, which she says was included in the cost of the surgery. Carla was told to start applying the serum two weeks before the surgery and asked to apply it to her hairline daily as a pre-op treatment.

Carla two weeks post-op, with and without makeup. The scars are barely noticeable!

What’s the average cost of forehead reduction surgery? 

The cost for hairline-lowering surgery is around $8000 at the London Bridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Clinic, which includes the surgery, clinic fees, and post-surgery care. However, the cost will vary from country to country and clinic to clinic. We recommend reading reviews and having one or two consultations with the doctor before carefully selecting your clinic and committing to the procedure.

Will you see results immediately? 

Carla after her forehead reduction surgery!

“After the procedure, the patient has a drain in and a bandage around his/her head. This is all removed before the patient is discharged from hospital. Patients can see immediately the change however we advise our patients that it can take six weeks or more for the final result to be achieved,” Dr. Inglefield told us.

Can anyone have hairline-lowering surgery?

“To determine if it is appropriate for the individual to have the procedure, he/she is assessed during the consultation. Factors that would require further assessment would include if the person has had any previous surgeries to the head or scalp, or if the person has had hair or skin-related conditions. If for any reason the individual is unsuitable for hairline-lowering surgery, he/she will be advised against this form of surgery.”

Are there potential complications?

“Common to all surgical procedures there are always risks associated with surgery. However, complications are uncommon even with complex facial surgery. Bruising can occur and may take two weeks to resolve, while major bleeding is rare. Hematoma (blood collection) is rare (risk less than 0.1%). This may require re-operation or drainage,” Dr. Inglefield explains. He continues that other possible complications, although very rare, include:

Skin necrosis: This “causes discoloration to the scalp and is caused by compromised blood flow to the tissue,” and should be reviewed immediately.

Infection: This is “infrequent (less than 0.5%) and will require a course of appropriate antibiotics.”

Facial muscle weakness: Apparently this is uncommon, but it can affect the forehead and may last for six to eight weeks, while permanent weakness is rare. Although “Altered sensation in the scalp is expected and will slowly improve from one to two years following your surgery,” Dr. Inglefield says. Carla is now nearly two months post-surgery and still doesn’t have full feeling of her scalp.

Finally, Dr. Inglefield tells us, “Abnormal scarring, hypertrophic and keloid scars are uncommon. Major hair loss or permanent hair loss is rare.

The result for Carla? She is incredibly happy with her surgery: “Having this operation has massively increased my confidence and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I just wish I had known about it earlier!”

Obviously, forehead lowering surgery is a major procedure and one that should be taken very seriously. Carla told us she had wanted surgery for years! The process doesn’t come without its risks, but that said, in Carla’s experience, she has had barely any downtime and little to no complications. As with all cosmetic changes, if it’s something you want, then it’s your decision to make.

Why Do You Need Clarifying Shampoos?

Today, we shall spare a few words on the necessity of using clarifying shampoos. We live in an age of increasing pollution and if you are from an urban area or city locality, there’s no need to tell you that your scalp and roots become the dumping ground for air-borne pollutants. Again, it is a well-known fact that since most of us use a lot of different types of hairstyling products on our head and hair, they are all bound to clog up hair follicles leading to hair damage and severe hair fall. It would be a good practice to use clarifying shampoos at regular intervals to clean out the scalp and keep hair healthy and shiny. So let us try to enlist what are the different ways clarifying shampoos benefit us.

  • To clear out build-up from conditioners, styling products and varied treatments and detoxify your scalp: It is highly advisable to clear out build-up on the scalp as an inevitable result of using conditioners, styling products and other chemical treatments. To continue product build-up is detrimental to our hair’s health. So, it is best to use clarifying shampoos to remove such chemical build-up and keep hair and scalp clean and healthy.
  • To add volume to your hair: It has also been observed that those who have the good habit of using clarifying shampoo at regular intervals possess and flaunt greater volumes of healthy and vibrant hair. So, it comes doubly recommended to all who wish to possess voluminous hair to use clarifying shampoo at regular intervals to clean your hair.
  • For treating super fine, oily, straight hair: Un-styled or untreated hair sometimes becomes frizzy due to high pollution level and act as a sort of pollution retaining net. For all those of you who have such hair, it is highly recommended and comes well advised to use clarifying shampoos to keep your hair clean and save it from damages and harmful effects of air pollution.
  • To prepare your hair before coloring: It is a very good practice to clean your head with a clarifying shampoo before you plan to color your hair. And for two obvious reasons, firstly because the build-up from the usage of products, previously; secondly, it would ensure that the new color settles in properly. So do use a clarifying shampoo before you colour your hair.
  • To remove hard water and chlorine deposits: If you are in the habit of swimming in pools, then you are susceptible to developing chlorine build-up and deposits of hard water on your head. This is quite detrimental to your hair’s health. So using clarifying shampoo is a must.
  • To make it easy for you to style your hair: If you are into styling your hair, it is always recommended to clean your hair before you style it. And the reason is pretty obvious. Styling your hair before cleaning out any previous product build-up or chlorine or hard water deposits is not only detrimental to your hair but also messes up with your plans to style your hair properly. So it comes highly recommended that you use a clarifying shampoo to clean your hair off any unwanted substances before you embark on styling it.

Hence, from all that has been discussed so far, it is rather obvious that it is good practice to use a clarifying shampoo at regular intervals to keep your hair clean and to maintain good hair health, and to prevent hair fall. And the pros of using a clarifying shampoo far outweigh the cons of the hassle of using it. Ergo, it is most advisable and highly recommended that you build a habit of cleaning your hair with periodic use of clarifying shampoos for your own benefit. So dear readers, tell us what you think of today’s article in the comments section below. Keep pretty and healthy.

Mens Tanning Guide - How to Get The Perfect Summer Tan | Skalp

Mens Tanning Guide

 

After what seems like forever, the sun is finally making a regular appearance in our skies. Summer holidays are on their way, which means it’s time to prepare for that all important tan. But in order to pick up an amazing tan we have to put some work in. Our men’s tanning guide runs through some of the basics to cover over the next few months.

How to get an even tan

The best way to get an all over even tan is to do it gradually. Remember that some parts of the body have had more sun over the year ( face, lower arms, neck & hands) and some have not had much sun at all. When summer comes around, go easy on the skin that hasn’t seen the sun in awhile to avoid burning. Once you burn your skin, it will get dry and start to peel, causing your tan to go patchy. Starting with short bursts in the sun with a high SPF will be the beginning of an even tan.

How to make your tan last longer

We only get a few months of sun in the UK, so we want to make the most of it. To make your tan last longer you’ll need to take care of your skin. Cleansing and will ensure you remove any skin that is starting to flake. This helps to remove the risks of having streaks, while also maintaining the tan so it lasts for much longer.

 

Can you tan with a bald head?

Even if you are trying to manage hair loss, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out when it comes to tanning. As you’d expect, a little more care has to be taken as the skin is more sensitive. Make sure you apply a sun cream with an SPF of at least 50 and apply it evenly across the head. If you sweat or go into any water, make sure it is reapplied straight away. Also limit the amount of time your head is exposed to the sun. Using a hat is a good idea to cover to let the skin recover and rest.

Can men fake tan?

Fake tans – or self-tanning as it is called – is done just as commonly by men as it is by women. As with natural tanning, the key is to take care of your skin. Exfoliate and cleansing the skin makes it easier to absorb and look natural. Make sure you buy a good quality lotion as going cheap will not produce the best results. You should also remember to add sunscreen every day to keep yourself protected while out in the sun.

Why can’t I get a tan?

It would be easy to assume that everyone can tan the same way. But the reason some pick up more sun than others is due to the melanin levels found in our body’s cells. The higher the melanin count, the more easily you will pick up the sun. People from the Mediterranean naturally have higher levels due to their heritage and environment. While fairer skinned people in the UK and the Nordic countries generally experience less sun, so have less melanin passed down genetically.

 

 

Tips for a great tan this summer

The sun makes us feel and look great. But we also need to remain healthy due to our exposure to harsh UV rays. Here are some key tips to remember:

  • Exfoliate your skin
  • Cleansing the skin removes dead cells and helps you to achieve the best possible tan.

  • Wear a sunscreen
  • It’s important to protect our skin to prevent additional damage taking place. The sun is fantastic but too much exposure can also be detrimental to our health.

  • Moisturise
  • After a day in the sun, make sure to use an after sun or moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated and glowing. Pure aloe vera gel is great for redness or burnt skin.

  • Limit time in the sun
  • Even with sunscreen on, we need to limit our time in the sun. It is at its hottest between 10am to 4pm, so take breaks to let your skin rest.

  • Hat and shades
  • The skin around our eyes is thin and needs protecting from the sun. Hats also shade our eyes, ears, forehead, nose and scalp.

    How Did You Survive Divorce - Real Tips That Helped Me - Run Eat Repeat

    This week I received an important question on the @RunEatRepeat Instagram story box…

    “What helped you get through / distract you from your divorce while training?”

    Ugh. This makes me sad. I don’t wish heartbreak of any kind on anyone ever.

    So I answered it in my IG stories – it’s saved in the Sept Q&A.

    But I mentioned that I would do a quick post because I was naming a bunch of tools and tips that helped me survive. I’ll share that list below. [Also – I mentioned doing a ‘relationship timeline’ and said I’d explain it in a post. Well, that’s coming soon. I need to do a video or some kind of illustration to describe it.]

    Things That Help Heal from Heartbreak

    1. Let it out. Talk to friends, God, a therapist, your dog, your friend’s dog, some guy at the gas station…
    2. Use Message or Video apps to connect with friends and family. I ‘talked’ to friends by leaving a lot of messages going on and on and on… via WhatsApp and Marco Polo. The beauty of this is – you leave the message when you need a friend, but they can listen or watch when they have time. This way you don’t feel guilty and avoid reaching out. And your friends don’t worry whether they should check on you or not bring it up or what.
    3. Pray. This should be first on the list but I’m just listing them as they pop in my head movies. I prayed a lot. It really helped. Visualize yourself handing over your heartbreak, worry or pain to God. Let Him take care of it and you take care of yourself.
    4. Ask for support. If you need help – ask. Everyone handles break-ups differently. Everyone wants different levels of communication. Your people care about you – but they don’t know you need them unless you communicate that. Last year I found out a friend was depressed and I had no idea. I act and cope very differently than she was so I didn’t realize. I feel really bad and wish I could have been a better friend. So… if you can let your people know you need to hang out, funny gifs, to come over, etc. tell them.
    5. Listen to bad Bltch music. See: Lizzo.
    6. Get a blow out and pedicure. Optional: Have an adult bev.
    7. Be a good friend. If you want to have good friends you have to be a good friend. It’s really helpful to get out of your head/world and talk with people about their lives. It’s good for you to think about other things outside of yourself. It’s good for your friends to know you care.

    In Training… (The question asked how I handled it regarding training and I kinda went on a tangent with all the random tips. So to bring it back to answer the question…)

    Do your best. Some days will be good! Some days will be hard. That’s okay. You’re going through a sad season of life. Yeah, it may affect your training – but be kind to yourself above all else. Keep showing up. Do your best with where you are at physically and emotionally that day. Keep going keep going keep going.

    Related to training: Going through a loss like divorce, death or other trauma is hard. There isn’t one perfect way to process it, heal and move forward.

    I had a hard time sleeping for months – maybe a year. I didn’t want to cook so I was mostly just eating snacks. I probably snacked through breakfast and lunch and mid-afternoon would finally have a meal.

    I’m saying this because – sleep and nutrition are important for your health. They are also very important if you are trying to train for a race. If you ask your body to do athletic things – you must treat it like an athlete with proper care, rest, fuel, hydration, etc.

    If your training is being hindered by life’s ups or downs – you have to make sure you’re doing the basics to keep yourself healthy…

    Must Do List:

    • Eat balanced meals.
    • Get enough sleep / rest.
    • Be kind to yourself.
