Your nail art might have an unexpected side effect ... and it's not so pretty.
Pollen. Peanuts. Pets. If you're lucky enough to deal with endless sneezes and watery eyes, these are few of the things you may expect to cause an allergic reaction. And while it's not easy to avoid them all the time, you probably know to pop a Claritin or say no to airplane peanuts and cute puppy cuddles in order to avoid an episode.
But let's say your usual allergy-fighting methods don't work, and you're battling a rash or swollen lips for more than just a few days. Check your fingernails — do you have a freshly polished mani? That pretty new shade of pink could be to blame.
Dermatologists turn to oral antibiotics for treating acne when topical medications have failed or are too irritating, as well as when the disease is widespread and it becomes too cumbersome to apply creams to all the affected areas.
"Oral antibiotics are also used with severe disease or when isotretinoin or oral contraceptive pills are refused or contraindicated," Dr. Hilary Baldwin, medical director for the Acne Treatment and Research Center in Morristown, New Jersey, tells Dermatology Times.

According to the American Society of Dermatological Surgery, a skin lesion may appear as a bump, a discolored area, or an ulcer on the skin.
People with HIV may be prone to skin lesions for a number of different reasons.
HIV can reduce the immune system's ability to fight infection.
A person who has a weakened immune system is more likely to develop a variety of skin infections, which may be fungal, viral, or bacterial. They may also develop certain skin cancers.

Despite the known dangers of exposure to ultraviolet light, many people continue to sunbathe and use indoor tanning beds with some users exhibiting a dependence to tanning. A new study from the Yale School of Public Health finds that such dependence is also associated with other addictive behaviors.
We know that when it comes to exercise, it's important to mix up your routine to get the best results. But what about with skin care — should we use the same products every day, or is it OK to change it up? We took the question to three top dermatologists to get their insight.
The notion of aging gracefully is becoming outdated as people increasingly turn to cosmetic procedures to stay young. Recent advancements in cosmetic dermatology have made it easy to get a little freshening up over your lunch break in lieu of more invasive procedures. But if your skin care knowledge doesn't extend beyond the beauty counter, knowing where to start can be tricky.

All skin tones are susceptible to UV damage, confirms a recent study by The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology. We enlisted dermatologist Drs. Barbara Sturm of Skin of Color and dermatologist and Carlos Charles of New York City dermatology practice Derma Di Colore to break down the best approach to sun protection and anti-aging for women of color.

SDSS aims to develop and foster the highest standards of skin care in the dermatology setting.
In 2011, scientists made one of the most important discoveries in the history of AI development. They found that graphics processing units are far better at simulating biological learning than central processing units.
In retrospect, it seems obvious. Human brains are much more like GPUs than CPUs. Both brains and GPUs rely on parallel processing that simulates and predicts real world physics.
In light of this, AI developers created powerful deep neural networks that emulate human brain function. All the major advances in self-driving cars and language translation are the result of this.

Scientists have discovered that the immune environment inside melanomas with mutations in ATR — a protein that normally identifies and repairs DNA damage caused by UV exposure — is altered in ways that promote tumor growth. They suggest that the finding could help to improve immunotherapies for melanoma and identify patients more likely to respond to them.
Toxins, fillers, lasers — they've comprised the bulk of the beauty world's breaking news since the dawn of Botox for cosmetic use. And for good reason: Line-smoothing shots (Botox and now Xeomin and Dysport) and contour-restoring hyaluronic acid fillers (like Restylane and Juvéderm) are pretty freaking miraculous. And remember when we heralded the arrival of skin-tightening treatments, like Thermage and Ultherapy? Sharpen a jawline without a single prick!
No longer just for getting rid of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles when you're over 40, Botox is on the rise in younger women. According to The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (which represents more than 2,500 facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons around the world), in 2016, 56 percent of surgeons saw an increase of patients under 30 asking for Botox.
