PPD in its pure form is available in the
local market and until recently there was no restrictions for its use or
trade. Adolescents are well aware of its toxic effects and it is
commonly used to attempt suicide. Legislation and laws should prevent
its use in different hair dye formulations and look for another
substitute. Clinical management is hampered by the lack of a rapid
diagnostic test; no other treatment other than supportive measures can
Laser treatment of amateur tattoos in Arabs

Cold air seems to be useful in reducing needle-injection pain in the
majority of patients, especially in the palms. This procedure is safe,
apart from immediate tolerable discomfort when used around the

Chemical peels for melasma in dark-skinned

in darker races, the choice of the peeling agent becomes
relatively limited; so, there is the need for priming agents and
additional maintenance peels. Although a number of new agents have come
up, there is little published evidence supporting their use in day-to
-day practice. The traditional glycolic peels prove to be the best both
in terms of safety as well as efficacy. Lactic acid peels being
relatively inexpensive and having shown equally good results in a few
studies, definitely need further experimentation. We also
recommend the use of a new peeling agent, the easy phytic solution,
which does not require neutralisation unlike the traditional alpha-hydroxy
Serum Ferritin and Vitamin D in Female Hair
Loss: Do They Play a Role?.
Rasheed H, Mahgoub D, Hegazy R, El-Komy M, Abdel
Hay R, Hamid MA, Hamdy E.
Skin Pharmacol Physiol. 2013 Feb 20;26(2):101-107.
Low serum ferritin and vitamin D(2) are associated
with hair loss in females with TE and FPHL. Screening to establish these
levels in cases of hair loss and supplementing with them when they are
deficient may be beneficial in the treatment of disease.
The contribution of teledermatoscopy to the
diagnosis and management of non-melanocytic skin tumours.
Senel E, Baba M, Durdu M.
J Telemed Telecare. 2013 Feb 19.
The reliability increased significantly
when dermatoscopy was added, to 0.86 and 0.88 respectively (P < 0.05).
The reliability of management plans without dermatoscopy was 0.67 and
0.70, but it did not increase significantly when dermatoscopy was added.
The accuracy of the diagnoses was significantly increased by the
addition of dermatoscopic images, from 85% to 94% for dermatologist A
and from 88% to 95% for dermatologist B. Teledermatology is a reliable
technique for the diagnosis and management of non-melanocytic skin
tumours and the addition of dermatoscopic images increases the
reliability and the accuracy of teledermatology.
Eyebrow bleaching among females:
Al Ghamdi KM, Moussa NA.
J Cosmet Dermatol. 2011
In this sample of female patients, eyebrow bleaching was
reported to be a common practice. Bleaching was associated with local
side effects in over 50% of those who use the technique. Thus, there is
a need to educate the public about these side effects.
Treatment of cosmetic tattoos with nonablative fractional laser
in an animal model: A novel method with histopathologic evidence.
Wang CC, Huang CL, Lee SC, Sue YM, Leu FJ.
Lasers Surg Med. 2013 Feb 8.
Nonablative fractional lasers (NAFLs) successfully
remove cosmetic tattoos by transepidermal elimination of tattoo pigments
through the disrupted dermal-epidermal junction. This action is
facilitated by the wound healing process.
