My Oily Skin Solution Review

Highly Recommended

It is pricier than all the other books out there, but it is produced by a true expert and is full of proven practical tips.

This ebook served its purpose to the maximum level. I am glad that I purchased it. If you are interested in this field, this is a must have.

Antigen Entry Into The Body

The epithelia of the skin and the mucous membranes of the respiratory, gastrointestinal and urogenital tract represent an extensive surface area. They are constantly exposed to a great variety of microorganisms and other antigenic substances. The skin constitutes a strong mechanical (keratin layer) and physiological (gland products, in particular sebum) barrier towards antigen. In the mucous membranes, which are only covered by a thin specialized epithelium, other mechanisms such as ciliary function and nonspecific and antimicrobial factors (e.g. mucin and lysozyme) are involved in preventing or combating infections. In addition, specific immune reactions play a part. The hallmark of specific mucosal immunity is the production and action of secretory immunoglobulin A (slgA), which displays its functions at the mucosal surface ('outside' the body), and of effector T cells. Thus, the epithelia of the skin and the mucous membranes are primarily engaged in antigen exclusion only under...

Aetiologyrisk factors

Although the exact aetiological mechanism is unknown, it is accepted that acne is the result of the interaction of several processes, which centre on pathological changes in the pilosebaceous duct (PSD) in response to an as yet unidentified trigger mechanism. Thickening of the follicular stratum corneum (hypercornification) leads to blockage and accumulation of sebum, which is produced in large quantities in response to the androgen surges that accompany puberty. The resident skin commensal Propionibacterium acnes then proliferates in the lipid-rich sebaceous follicles and there is a build up of bacteria and their metabolites, sebum and dead cellular material. This cannot be discharged because of the blockage at the follicle opening and there is therefore an inflammatory response. The extent and duration of the inflammation, and hence the severity of the acne, may be determined by individual variation in the immune response to P. acnes, its metabolic products or any component of the...

Implications for practice

Second-generation tetracyclines such as minocycline, doxycycline and lymecycline are widely perceived to be more active in the belief that their greater lipophilicity results in greater sebum penetration and PSD concentration. This review has not found any evidence to support this and superiority has not been demonstrated. These agents are easier for patients to take, however, as they can be taken once daily and the absorption may be less affected by food.186-188 However, there is no evidence to support the view that tetracycline needs to be taken four times a day its half-life of approximately 9 hours in plasma is likely to be increased in the skin. There is also no evidence to suggest that maintaining serum antibiotic concentrations at steady state is necessary for clinical efficacy or moderates anti-inflammatory effects. Other evidence located comprised a series of non-randomised studies in 420 individuals with moderate-to-severe acne. In a non-randomised controlled study of 152...

Historical background

Term 'secretion' is more general it does not necessarily involve vesicle-membrane fusion and presents semantic conundrums ascribable to different vocabularies of histophysiopathology and molecular biology it includes 1) discharge of proenzymes from pancreatic acinar cells (merocrine secretion), 2 release of serous mixtures from sweat glands (eccrine secretion), 3) shedding of lipid from active mammary alveoli (apocrine secretion), and 4) spilling of contents upon cell death in sebaceous glands (holocrine secretion), but excludes kindred processes euphemistically called 1) 'externalization' of product-laden membrane evaginations (matrix components of cartilage and bone, some viruses, myoblast lectin), 2) 'expulsion' of nuclei from erythroblasts, or 3) 'shedding' of platelets by megakaryocytes.

Epithelial Skin Stem Cells

The bulge area of the rat vibrissae has been shown to contain multipotent cells that have tissue morphogenesis ability. Micro-dissected rat vibrissae bulge tissue and cells transplanted onto the back of athymic mice yielded entire hair follicles, SG, and epidermis. Bulge cells also exhibited the highest colony-forming ability when cells were placed in tissue culture, and this was true regardless of hair follicle cycle stage. In other follicle regions, efficient colony-forming and morphogenetic cells were not found except for the bulb of the rat vibrissae, where such cells were detected only in early anagen. In a recent study by Blanpain and colleagues (2004), bulge cells isolated from pelage follicles harboring the actin-GFP transgene were plated at limiting dilution and grown in a culture dish. Single colonies were isolated, and the descendants from these individual bulge-cell colonies were mixed with newborn dermal cells and grafted onto the back of nude mice. The newly forming skin...

Use of nude mice in immunology and oncology

And an increased level of NK activity are detected in nude mice, these mice show an inability to reject alio- and xenografts. Therefore, nude mice have been used as recipients of normal tissues and for the expansion of various tumor cell lines, as well as for the maintenance of hybridomas for monoclonal antibody production. Skin from other species has been grafted successfully and remained viable indefinitely. All skin grafts survived and continued to perform their normal functions such as hair and feather growth, production of sebum, and renewal of epithelium. Tumors developing in other species, especially humans, have been inoculated into nude mice. Anatomical structure at both the macro- and microscopic levels is well preserved and the grafted tumor is generally indistinguishable from the structure of the tumor in the patients. Secretion of hormones in secretory tumors and production of other biological substances is maintained. Human tumors growing in nude mice produce metastases,...

Tumors with Sebaceous Differentiation

Sebaceous hyperplasia (48) is a well-differentiated collection of mature sebaceous glands. It appears clinically as a yellowish papule with a central depression and surface telangiectasias. Sebaceous hyperplasia is more common in elderly men but begins to appear after age 30. Lesions are multiple and predominate on the face. The cheeks and forehead are favorite locations. Histopathological examination reveals mature sebaceous glands communicating with the epidermis through a dilated duct.

Mohair Biology and Characteristics

Skin Image Microscope Micron

In the raw fleece, natural nonprotein impurities also are present. These include suint (water-soluble dried sweat secreted by the sudoriferous glands), wax (secreted by the sebaceous glands), inorganic dust and dirt, and organic vegetable matter (twigs, seeds, burrs, etc.). One objective of textile scouring and processing is to eliminate these contaminants. Moisture (up to 30 ) is also associated with mohair. On a dry basis, cleansed mohair contains approximately 50 carbon, 22 25 oxygen, 16 17 nitrogen, 7 hydrogen, and 3 to 4 sulfur. The basic building blocks for keratin are 18 amino acids. Differences among the amino acid contents of adult, kid, and kemp mohair fibers have been documented.

Coryneform Bacteria Infection And Immunity

Propionibacterium spp. require lipid and anaerobic conditions for successful cultivation in vitro. P. acnes and P. granulosum are isolated from highly sebaceous areas of human skin in all those past puberty P. avidum is similarly found in the axilla. The first two species are associated with acne and are occasionally recovered from deep infections in humans. There is no consensus on the role of Propionibacteria in acne. Not all acne lesions contain microorganisms but a potential role for Propionibacteria may be as follows they reside in the ducts of sebaceous glands which become blocked as a result of changes in keratinization sebum continues to be produced so that the blocked duct forms a closed comedo. In vitro, P. acnes has sharp pH and p02 optima for the production of hyaluronidase and protease production of these enzymes in vivo, if it occurs, would render the comedo wall leaky to host-defense mechanisms triggering of the alternative complement pathway by the cell wall of P....

Paraneoplastic syndromes

At least seven cases of this syndrome have been reported in the cat. The removal of the tumour and the regression of clinical signs have confirmed the association between the presence of a thymoma and the development of skin lesions. Cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CD8+) have been observed in lesional epidermal tissue sections, suggesting a role for autoreactive T-cells attacking keratinocytes in the epidermis, hair follicle and sebaceous glands (Rivierre & Olivry, 1999). The clinical signs tend to occur in older cats and include localised to generalised erythroderma with exfoliation (Plate 6.19). The cat may be weak and anorexic, and have signs suggestive of thoracic disease including coughing and dyspnoea. The histological findings in skin biopsies include an interface dermatitis, hydropic degeneration of epidermal basal cells, and apoptotic keratinocytes in the epidermis and hair follicle. Radiography will reveal a mass in the cranial mediastinum of the thorax and ultrasound may allow...

Clinical Features

INFECTED SEBACEOUS CYSTS Sebaceous glands occur diffusely throughout the body. Blockage of the duct of a sebaceous gland may lead to development of a glandular cyst that may exist for a long period of time without becoming infected. Once bacterial invasion occurs, abscess formation is common. These patients typically present with an erythematous, tender cutaneous nodule that is commonly fluctuant. Simple incision and drainage are the appropriate ED treatment. The cyst always contains a capsule that must be removed to prevent further infection. This is usually best done at a later follow-up visit when the initial inflamation has improved or resolved. Occasionally, the wall of the sac can be grasped with a forceps and removed at the time of drainage.


Most cases of acne clear spontaneously as an individual passes through adolescence and into their twenties. The reason for this is as yet undetermined, as there is no concurrent reduction in sebum production or change in its lipid composition. There are, however, two forms of post-adolescent acne in which the disease is evident in adulthood. Persistent acne commences in adolescence but does not resolve and is generally resistant to antibiotic therapy. Conversely, late-onset acne is generally less severe, evolves more commonly in women after 25 years of age, and has been linked to abnormalities in plasma androgens.11,12

Search methods

The impact of detergent bases on the control of sebum has not been ascertained, although it has been hypothesised that removal of sebum may enhance the activity of topically applied antibacterials. There is also controversy as to whether exfoliation using abrasives clears blocked PSDs and speeds up lesion healing, or whether associated irritancy and drying may


A proportion of individuals fail to respond to antibiotics - epidemiological studies estimated that this is between 10 180 and 17 181 of individuals. Theories that have been proposed include individual differences in the absorption, distribution and elimination of the antibiotic as well as poor compliance, the follicular microenvironment and P. acnes resistance.180 The underlying severity of the disease may also determine response to antibiotics, as severe acne and acne of the trunk has been shown to respond less well than moderate acne,182,183 possibly as a result of the higher sebum excretion rate184 diluting follicular drug concentrations.180 Clinically another important impact of alteration in cutaneous microflora is the possibility of the development of gram-negative folliculitis, which presents with profuse

Histological Changes

The epidermis is the only skin layer to thicken during the expansion process however, it eventually normalizes in the postexpansion period. Also noted are flattening of the rete pegs and increases in mitotic activity lasting up to 3 months. The dermis undergoes permanent thinning, increased collagen synthesis, realignment of collagen fibers to a more parallel orientation, and a temporary increase in melanin production that causes hyperpigmentation. Hair follicles and sebaceous glands move farther apart without increasing in number. Subcutaneous fat undergoes a decrease in the number of fat cells and a decrease in the size of the remaining cells with some associated fat necrosis. This layer may fully recover after several months (53). Skeletal muscle undergoes the following (54) muscle cells increase in the number of mitochondria, fibers thin and become atrophic with some necrosis, and hyalinization and calcifications develop. There is no change in the number of muscle cells after...

Gross anatomy

The nipple usually lies at the level of the fourth intercostal space and 15-20 lactiferous ducts open onto its surface through small openings. Surrounding the nipple is the areola which is made up of pigmented skin and subcutaneous tissue in which lie smooth muscle fibres. The epithelium contains sweat glands, sebaceous glands and accessory mammary glandular tissue (Figs 17.1 and 17.2).

Problems Of The Skin

The skin is a strong, elastic membrane that encloses the body and protects it from damage by injury or infection. An average man is covered by approximately 18 square feet of skin, which weighs about 4 kg. It varies in thickness from 0.05 to 5 mm. The thickest skin is found on the palms and soles whereas the thinnest is found on the eye-lids. The skin contains innumerable sweat glands, again varying in number from part to part of the body. On palms or soles, there are about 3000 sweat glands per square inch. On the back, they are sparse, numbering about 500 per square inch. Sensations of pain, touch and temperature are conveyed to the brain by nerve-endings in the skin. Skin also has oil-producing sebaceous glands. This oil protects the skin and keeps it supple. Deficiency of this oil (sebum) causes cracking of the skin, esp. in winter.


Fordyce granules that are slightly elevated, cream-colored spots seen frequently on the vermilon border of the lips and buccal mucosa represent ectopic sebaceous glands.25 Linea alba is a white line on the buccal mucosa at the level of the occlusal surface. It is caused by normal friction from the facial surfaces of the teeth during mastication. Leukedema, which is a normal variant, is a grayish white appearance to the mucosal surfaces secondary to thickening of the mucosa and edema of the spinosal layer. It usually affects the buccal musosa bilaterally and can be diagnosed by its disappearance on eversion or stretching of the mucosal surface. 19 Firm exophytic enlargement along the lingual surface of the mandible (torus mandibularis) or of the hard palate (torus palatinus) represents benign exostoses of the associated bone. The etiology is unknown, but no therapeutic intervention is required. 26 Other entities that cause oral lesions such as pemphigoid, pemphigus, lichen planus, and...

Mural folliculitis

One form of this condition is associated with epithe-liotropic lymphoma, another with sebaceous gland atrophy and sebaceous adenitis. The latter has been described in two forms. In one report a 10-year-old cat developed extensive hair loss and skin biopsies revealed an absence of sebaceous glands and pyogranuloma-tous inflammation around the hair follicles. In two other cases there was generalised heavy scaling of the body, partial alopecia and distinct rims of brown to black thick adherent scale along the margins of the eyelids the author has seen a similar case. Histologically, there were similar changes in biopsies from both cats with no sebaceous glands. There is no effective treatment for sebaceous adenitis, although it may respond slightly to topical bathing. Glucocorticoids and retinoids may be worth considering if the condition proves to be similar to that reported in the dog.

Burn Depth

In superficial partial-thickness burns, the epidermis and the superficial (papillary layer) dermis are injured. The deeper layers of the dermis, hair follicles, and sweat and sebaceous glands are spared. Superficial partial-thickness burns are often caused by hot water. There is blistering of the skin and the exposed dermis is red and moist at the blister's base. These burns are very painful to touch. There is good perfusion of the dermis with intact capillary refill. Superficial partial-thickness burns heal in 14 to 21 days, scarring is usually minimal, and there is full return of function. Deep partial-thickness burns extend into the deep (reticular layer) of the dermis. There is damage to hair follicles as well as sweat and sebaceous glands, but their deeper portions usually survive. Hot liquids, steam, grease, or flame usually causes deep partial-thickness burns. The skin may be blistered and the exposed dermis is pale white to yellow in color. The burned area does not blanch it...

Pilosebaceous Unit

Inside Hair Follicle

Pilosebaceous units contain sebaceous glands, sensory end organs, arrector pili muscle, hair, and the hair follicle. Thick hair, such as on the scalp, is terminal hair fine, nearly imperceptible hair, is vellus hair. Depending on the part of the body, the sebaceous unit may be predominant (e.g., nose). The hair follicle has three named portions (from the skin to the base) the infundibulum (to the sebaceous gland duct), the isthmus (from the duct to the arrector pili muscle insertion), and the inferior portion (below the pili muscle insertion). Hair arises from the base of the hair follicle (the hair bulb). In the hair bulb are cells that make the hair along with melanocytes incorporated into the growing hairs. The hair bulb surrounds a dermal structure called the hair papilla. This papilla regulates the hair bulb activity. The mature hair has a ringlike configuration of several distinct layers (from outer to inner) vitreous membrane, outer root sheath, Henle's layer, Huxley's layer,...

Cutaneous Cysts

Sequestration Dermoid

Steatocystoma multiplex (53) is a true sebaceous cyst that occurs during adolescence as an autosomal dominant condition. Tumors are multiple, smooth, yellowish, or skin-colored, measuring from 0.3 to 3 cm in diameter, and with surface telangiectasias. The most common locations are the scrotum, axillae, chest, or neck. On histological examination these cysts are considered a variant of dermoid cysts because the wall contains multiple sebaceous glands.

Androgen effects

Certain features of ageing men resemble those observed in androgen-deficient younger men, notably decreased lean body mass (muscle) and bone reduced body hair growth, skin thickness and dermal sebum secretion impaired cognitive function and mood increased adiposity and reduced strength, endurance, initiative, virility and sense of well-being. Since androgen replacement in younger men can reverse muscle, bone and mental changes of androgen deficiency, it is a reasonable postulate that the partial androgen deficiency may contribute to the physical frailty and mental torpor of older men. Nevertheless, it remains unclear whether (a) blood testosterone concentrations fall far enough to warrant replenishment, (b) tissue androgenic thresholds change with age, and (c) older tissues remain sufficiently androgen responsive. In short, the biological significance of the gradual, partial and variable decline in blood testosterone concentrations in older men cannot be established from observational...
