1. Sebaceous hyperplasia
2. Milia
3. Syringomas
4. Seborrheic keratosis
5. Warts

Make your best guess and the answer will be posted tomorrow.

I remember when you diagnosed me with this problem: milia. I had them removed and they have not returned!

Your swine flu report has been very helpful to me as I update my college health textbook.

Many thanks, as always,

Nutrients for Growth
One of the reasons why a person fails to grow taller as he should is because of poor diet. Without the proper nutrition, the body will not be able to produce the right amount of hormones that the body needs. The body’s defenses are lessened and the ability to the various activities is likewise decreased. If your body could not even keep up with its daily activities, how much more would it be able to properly produce growth hormones that one needs to grow tall? Being deficient in nutrients can inhibit a person’s growth.
Having the right amount of nutrients is then necessary for growth, whether you are in your teens, in your twenties, thirties and forties. The six essential nutrients that the body needs are vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, proteins and of course, water. When the body has enough of these, you can be sure that the body will function well. Furthermore, you will increase the possibility of growing a few more inches. Go to http://www.growth-flex.com/ .
It is important to note that the body needs a balanced diet; this means you should not take any more than what is necessary. Too much of anything can be bad. Food that has been fried in oil has too much fat, same as with junk food. To make sure that you have the right nutrients for growth, check the label in the packaging of the food.
It would also be better if you can have some dietary supplements. Remember, since they are supplements, they cannot be used as replacement for real food. A regular dose of growth enhancers such as Growth Flex V Pro System can help. For more in details, go to http://www.growth-flex.com/ .

many people think in this as a old age signal, but not all the time is that, something is caused by some injury, or inclusive for a bad feeding habit.

I have the same thing. Dermatologist did a biopsy (cut it out) and it was Trichoepithelioma. At first she thought it was Syringoma. I've googled Trichoepithelioma and all the pics they have are scary looking! I've had it for over 10 years now and they did get a little worse but not like the pics I see online! I have tried Wart & Mole remover, which did work but takes long to heal and can scar if u don't do it right. I also had a test-spot done (laser) and it worked but it's $550 per treatment and could require multiple treatments and even then may still come back (they say). Now I am trying lemon juice which is actually lessening the appearance of it, I'm not sure if its helping the scarred areas or just lightening the darkness so the bumps are less visible but it is helping a little.

scintillating scotoma

Nothing like experiencing a medical condition first-hand to really help a doctor understand it from the patient's point of view.  After all these years, I had my first (and hopefully last) scintillating scotoma while sitting on the couch playing "words with friends" on my ipad and watching TV.  A scotoma is a partial loss of vision in a normal visual field.  Scintillate is flashing, sparkles.  Put them together and you have moving, flashing sparkles with a blind spot in your eyes.

This visual aura was first described in the 19th century  by a Dr. Hubert Airy who had migraine headaches.  The visual sparks and flashes are in a zig-zag pattern and they can precede a migraine headache or occur without any pain.   The scotoma affects both eyes and closing one or the other does not make it go away.  Sometimes the term "ocular migraine" or "retinal migraine"  are used to describe this phenomenon but these involve only one eye, not both.  The terms are often …

Do Doctors Make Too Much Money?

An article in theNew York Times says the reason health care costs are so high in the United States is because doctors are paid too much. I saw that and my eyes bugged out. I just came home from a meeting with physicians and hospital administrators and the entire meeting was spent discussing the financial challenges physicians face in keeping their doors open to see patients. The goal of this meeting was to keep health services in that community so patients will have someone to care for them. Not a person in the room would agree that the doctors earn too much.

Physicians paid too much? Lets break that down. A doctor spends a minimum of 11 years in education and training after the age of 18. Many are in training for 15 or more years. They are living on student loans and contributing zero to their family's income until the residency years. At that time they earn less than minimum wage if you factor in the 80-100 hour workweek. When a doctor emerges from training (and believe me…
