  • 12 Common Summertime Skin Rashes in Children 12 Common Summertime Skin Rashes in Children

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion

    Summertime is fun-time, play time, splash time, a time when children are more active, spend more time outside, they interact more with the natural environment, they enjoy and strengthen their bodies. Unfortunately, this increased interaction with the environment also puts them at higher risk of specific skin conditions. Here are the top 12 summertime skin problems in young children.

     

    1. Heat rashes- due to the heat of summer and friction between the skin folds, certain parts of the body may develop red bumps or even blisters. Neck folds, elbows, armpits, are more prone to such rashes. Prevent them by dressing your child in comfortable and sweat absorbing clothing. Sometimes talcum powder may help.

    2. Plant rashes- Some plants may irritate the skin or cause allergic reactions, but children are often not aware of such dangers. If any such plants grow in the neighborhood, it is better to teach children about them. In case a child is exposed to such plant, treat the skin with hydrocortisone cream.

    3. Eczema- is an allergic reaction that may be triggered by food items, by dry air, overheating, sweating, or it may even be triggered by chlorine in a pool. If you know the reason for eczema, then just avoid the exposure. Anti-allergic ointments are available from the pharmacy.

    4. Insect bites- These may cause anything from mild discomfort and itchiness to severe anaphylactic shock in allergic children. It is best to teach a child regarding such dangers. If a child is known to have an anaphylactic reaction to an insect bite, then keeping an EpiPen at home makes sense, it may be injected before the arrival of emergency services.

    5. Impetigo- This is a common childhood bacterial infection that may cause rashes or blisters. It may require treatment with an antibiotic. Consult your pediatrician.

    6. Swimmer’s itch- This often occurs while swimming in lakes and other natural water reserves. It is caused by to a parasite that burrows into the skin. Avoid swimming at places that are known to harbor these parasites. In case of exposure, tell the child not to scratch. In most cases it will get well without treatment, but in some extreme instances it may require medical care.

    7. Sandworms- As the name connotes, these are worms that are found in sand and they may burrow into the child’s skin while playing with sand. If often happens at places where sand has been contaminated by feces of animals. Usually, it heals by itself in a month, but some cases may need treatment.

    8. Folliculitis- Also called hot tub rash, it occurs when taking a bath in untidy pools and tubs. This condition is an infection of hair follicle, and it may sometimes need treatment with antibiotics.

    9. Molluscum virus- Yet another infection caught through contaminated water pools. It is a viral infection that causes dome-shaped bumps; rashes would generally occur on the chest, back, arms or legs. It is contagious infection thus a child must not share bedding or towel with others while infected. Fortunately, the disease is self-limiting, and a child would get well without any treatment.

    10. Sweaty socks syndrome- caused due to extensive sweating of feet, often the result of wearing improper footwear. Thus the solution to the condition is to wear breathable footwear. If the skin of toes crack, consult your pediatrician.

    11. Ringworm- is a fungal infection that can occur at any age. It happens more commonly in moist parts of the body. The rash is oval and usually very itchy. The rash is typically red at the edges, while not very red in the center. It is treated with antifungal ointments.

    12. Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease- is caused by Enterovirus coxsackie, and as the name says, painful rashes are present around the mouth, inside the mouth, and at hands and feet (palm and soles). A child may develop a fever. Infection is self-limiting and should disappear within a week.

  • Most Common Viral Skin Infections Most Common Viral Skin Infections

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion

    It is vital to differentiate between viral and bacterial skin infections, since they are treated differently. Antibiotics are effective for bacterial infections, but they are ineffective in viral diseases. Fortunately, many viral infections are also self-limiting. Below are few of the most frequent viral skin infections that cause rashes:

    • Herpes simplex virus (type 1 and type 2) - These are perhaps the most common viral infections. They are characterized by rashes of the mucous membrane of mouth, throat, and in some cases, in the eye or genitals. HSV-1 infection is contracted during childhood, while HSV-2 is transmitted through sexual activity. Once infected, the virus will remain in the person’s body forever. Skin eruptions may occur from time to time in some individuals, while others may never see any rashes. The virus stays in the body in a latent stage, and it may be reactivated due to an illness, hormonal changes, trauma, etc. 
    Doctors sometimes recommend topical ointments based on acyclovir to treat the condition, but many have become resistant to this drug. Fortunately, LAVIOR has innovated a natural plant-based product proven to treat the Herpes virus. 

    • Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) - This is one virus that causes two illnesses at different stages of life. Most people are exposed to the VZV in the childhood, and in some, it may cause varicella (chickenpox), characterized by the development of vesicles on the skin. After the primary infection, a person develops immunity and VZV continues to persist in the nervous system in a latent stage. However, in some individuals, it may get re-activated later in life and cause painful blisters along the path of sensory nerves (dermatome served by that sensory nerve or ganglia). This secondary infection is called Zoster (or herpes zoster) or shingles. It may be severe if cranial nerves are involved as that may cause impairment of sight and other severe complications. Zoster or shingles would often be treated with antiviral drugs, including both the topical and systemic therapy. It is among the few viral infections in which antiviral drugs are useful Though antiviral treatment would not eradicate the virus forever, it would help in quick suppression. 

    • Human papillomavirus (HPV) - This is responsible for skin rashes to some severe types of cancers; there are more than 100 types of HPVs identified. HPV virus often causes plantar warts on the feet, while in others it may cause warts on the neck or face. Viral warts may occur in school-aged children or adults. In some cases, it may even cause genital warts (they occur in sexually active individuals). Cervix cancer in women is commonly the result of HPV virus. At present, no antiviral drug can efficiently suppress the virus, but HPV vaccine is available. It is recommended that all women (childbearing age and younger) should be vaccinated with HPV vaccine to reduce the risk of cervical cancer.
    • Molluscum contagiosum - It is an infection caused by a poxvirus and gives very odd looking painless bumps that are usually the size of a pencil If they are scratched, they may spread the infection. It is an extremely contagious infection and spread through either person to person contact or through the contact with contaminated objects. At present, there is no medical drug to treat this infection. The condition may persist for few months to a year, but finally it would disappear. Sometimes, these bumps may be removed by a doctor, though these procedures involve a painful recuperation period.

  • 3 Things You Don't Know About Aloe Vera 3 Things You Don't Know About Aloe Vera

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion



    You’ve probably heard of Aloe Vera at one time or another. After all, it’s a pretty magical plant that can be used for a number of reasons. You can find it in things like toothpaste, sun lotion, tea, and more. Egyptians even call it ‘the plant of immortality’.

    However, although you may have heard of it, there are probably some surprising things you still don’t know about it.

    Here are 3 things you don’t know about Aloe Vera:

    Aloe Vera Can Be Used For Numerous Skin Conditions

    Aloe Vera can be used for so many different skin conditions. When Aloe Vera is applied to the skin, burns heal faster - sun burns, minor sores, and both first and second degree burns can be treated. The plant extract can block up to 30% of the sun’s rays when applied to the skin too. For this reason, it is often included in sun lotions and after sun lotions.

    In diabetic rats that were treated, they were found to heal faster when in comparison to another traditional chemical. Both oral and topical treatments were found to be effective. The soothing and cooling effect helps to prevent pain, and the plant can even treat frostbite blisters.

    Aloe Vera is also an anti-inflammatory, so it can treat the appearance of scars and redness.  It can hydrate and nourish skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles; especially in those over age 45. Studies showed that it improved elasticity and collagen production in people that applied it regularly. It also makes a very effective moisturizer as it increases water retention in the skin, which is why it’s included in many hand creams and gels.

    Aloe Vera is said to clear up acne thanks to the zinc it contains. The cleansing and detoxifying agent penetrates deep into the skin, helping to really cleanse it. Aloe Vera contains 200 nutritional elements including amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, and 10 important skin minerals, helping to promote glowing skin.

    What more could you want in a skincare ingredient?

     

    Aloe Vera Can Reduce Your Blood Sugar

    Aloe Vera can help to reduce your blood sugar levels, which makes it extremely beneficial for diabetics. Keeping blood sugar levels under control is crucial to staying healthy.

    Using Aloe Vera, a reduction in blood sugar levels was found in 90% of cases after patients ate bread that included Aloe gel as an ingredient. Not only can Aloe Vera help the many skin conditions that diabetics suffer with, it can help from the inside too! 

     

    Aloe Vera Can Cleanse From The Inside Out

    Aloe Vera can cleanse you from the inside out. Applied to the skin it can help to beautify, but when consumed it can improve skin conditions on another level. Digestive health is closely linked to Aloe Vera, and it can help to remove toxins.

  • What Exactly is Inula Viscosa? What Exactly is Inula Viscosa?

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion

    What is Inula Viscosa? 

    The Inula Viscosa is quite a magical plant, which is why we (Lavior) use it in all of our skincare products. The products are suited for just about anybody, particularly diabetics, as they suffer from many skin issues that other people don’t need to worry about. A diabetic will usually suffer from wounds that get infected all too easily, and the aim of using Inula Viscosa in our skincare products is to heal the wounds much faster and prevent infection. But what exactly is the Inula Viscosa?

    This plant has been highly regarded for thousands of years as one of the most effective medicinal plants in Israel, although it is not commonly heard of anywhere else. Many people outside of Israel have not heard of this plant, and so do not know the magical benefits it can offer for skin health and wound healing. This plant can also be called a False Yellowhead, and it is known to support and protect neighboring plants, as well as help animals to heal faster too. 

    More About The Inula Viscosa

    It is a sturdy perennial shrub that grows in the wild around the Mediterranean. It’s an aromatic plant that has a strong smell of camphor, so you would know that it was there if you stumbled across it. The leaves and stems of the plant have a sticky resin, and the plant will bloom with small yellow flowers, especially during winter. It is one of the few food sources available to honey bees in the winter time, which is another reason it is so highly regarded by locals and nature enthusiasts alike.

    It is said to have the most potent bioactive resin production when in comparison to many other plants. When it is exposed to a lot of sun and not a lot of rain, it will secrete more resin to fend off attacks from insects and fungi bacteria, making it very sticky.

    Anti-Inflammatory, anti-viral, antibacterial, anti-fungal properties

    This plant has been used for thousands of years for wound healing, ulcer treatment, respiratory tract infections, arthritis, and other traditional medicine uses.

     

    Wounds

    The application of fresh leaves, or a powder made of dry leaves on open or bleeding wounds or burns results in the stoppage of bleeding, and serves as an effective antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent. Treatment using Inula viscosa is preferred by villagers over modern medications, since it promotes faster wound healing.

    Dry and rough skin

    The powder from the dried Inula viscosa leaf is mixed with oil and applied externally to affected parts of the body.

    Arthritis and rheumatism

    About 200 grams of Inula viscosa leaves are boiled in
    water for 5 minutes; filtered extract is poured into a bath full
    of warm water in which the arthritic person immerses
    himself for 30 minutes. For rheumatism, a powder made
    from Inula viscosa’s dried leaves is mixed with olive oil and
    applied on the affected area.

    Hemorrhoids

    Treatment for hemorrhoids consists of steaming Inula viscosa leaves and sitting over the vapors. A paste is also prepared from ground leaves, mixed with olive oil and applied as a topical ointment.

    Bronchitis and respiratory
    infections

    The extract is added to boiling water and the tonic consumed.

    High blood pressure
    and diabetes

    Inula viscosa leaves are boiled in water and the tonic is consumed.

    Pain Relief

    Not only will the Inula Viscosa plant help with inflamed areas and problem skin, it can also be used as part of your pain relief treatment. It has been used in the past as a relief for rheumatic pain and sore muscles.

     

    Sweaty Feet

A diabetic will usually suffer from wounds that get infected all too easily, and the aim of using Inula Viscosa in our skincare products is to heal the wounds much faster and prevent infection. But what exactly is the Inula Viscosa?

    This plant has been highly regarded for thousands of years as one of the most effective medicinal plants in Israel, although it is not commonly heard of anywhere else. Many people outside of Israel have not heard of this plant, and so do not know the magical benefits it can offer for skin health and wound healing. This plant can also be called a False Yellowhead, and it is known to support and protect neighboring plants, as well as help animals to heal faster too. 

    More About The Inula Viscosa

    It is a sturdy perennial shrub that grows in the wild around the Mediterranean. It’s an aromatic plant that has a strong smell of camphor, so you would know that it was there if you stumbled across it. The leaves and stems of the plant have a sticky resin, and the plant will bloom with small yellow flowers, especially during winter. It is one of the few food sources available to honey bees in the winter time, which is another reason it is so highly regarded by locals and nature enthusiasts alike.
