Even nice kids get lice

When children get head lice, parents should remember that the presence of these tiny parasitic insects has nothing to do with dirt. Instead, lice infestations are related to the type of close contact that children are exposed to at school. In addition, children pose rather easy targets for lice because the little creatures are better able to cling to fine hair of thin diameter. Moreover, children often share combs, brushes, hats and other objects that spread lice. The first telltale sign of lice is usually itching behind the ears, on the scalp and at the nape of the neck. Treatment largely consists of an over-the-counter medicated shampoo or rinse containing permethrin or the recently FDA-approved comb-free shampoo ivermectin.

Red in the face - Rosacea

Doctor of Oriental Medicine

Reddening of the face, that is not simply blushing or hot flashes, is many times Rosacea. Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition of the face. It can look like small red, pus-filled pustules, or bumps, and/or with tiny vessels becoming dilated and obvious at the surface of the skin, especially the face (referred to as telangiectasia). Although medicine does not seem to clearly define the causes, there are many known contributors.

Your favorite Halloween candy, as a cupcake

As one of Halloween's most iconic candies, candy corn seemed worthy of a makeover. After all, we've seen the candy mixed into cookie dough, sprinkled over ice cream, worked into brownies and blondies, even used to infuse vodka for a very adult sort of sticky tricky treat.
