5 Super Foods for Osteoporosis

Foods high in calcium and vitamin D are especially good for boosting bone density. These are the best known nutrients when we think about bones, but several others also play an important part, including vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. That’s why any diet geared toward preventing bone loss should be well balanced and contain plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as lean sources of protein.

Blackheads or Sebaceous Filaments on the Nose? Extractions

This gentleman came to see me for a skin cancer check. I needed to biopsy a couple of spots on his face, and I couldn’t help but notice he had some big, noticeable blackheads on his face, especially his nose. He was so nice to let me extract them and film it for you all to see!

Blackhead Extractions in a Teenager with Acne

A blackhead is also called an open comedo (single for comedone), and it is a clogged pore in the skin that is open to the air. Keratin (skin protein) and sebum (oil) combine to block the pore. They are often found on the face and trunk. but they can be found anywhere on the body. Blackheads are not clogged with dirt, but it is the exposure to air that causes oxidation turning the internal contents black. They can be extracted using a comedone extractor. I usually use an 11 blade (a blade that comes to a sharp point) and a Shaumberg type comedone extractor.

CEASE & DE-CYST!! A Dr Pimple Popper SPECIAL! Part 1

An epidermoid cyst (Epidermal Inclusion cyst, Infundibular cyst), is a benign growth commonly found in the skin and typically appears on the face, neck or trunk, but can occur anywhere on the body. Another name used is “sebacous cyst” but this is actually an antiquated misnomer, and is not a term used by dermatologists. They are also the most common type of cutaneous cysts. Epidermoid cysts result from the reproduction of epidermal cells within a confined space of the dermis. The pasty contents are mostly composed of macerated keratin (wet skin cells), which creates this “cheesy” consistency, and there can be a pungent odor. An epidermoid cyst may have no symptoms and are typically harmless. Usually people seek removal but they don’t like the appearance of these bumps, or the cyst has ruptured or been inflamed or “infected” in the past. Rupture is associated with sudden redness, pan, swelling, and local heat, and can lead to abscess formation. Also, a history of inflammation, often increases scar tissue in the area, makes the cyst more firmly adherent to surrounding skin, and makes it more difficult to remove. Surgical excision is curative, but the complete cyst removal including the entire cyst sac and contents need to be removed to ensure that the cyst won’t reoccur.

BIG cyst on lower back!

This is one of those blackheads that you were waiting to see! I thought this was a blackhead, or a Dilated Pore of Winer, but it proved to be an epidermoid cyst. It was flattened and disc-shaped because it’s in a very tight area of the back and it couldn’t grow down or up easily, so it spread out very flatly, which makes it look more like a large blackhead. As you can see, I was able to remove it entirely, and a couple sutures were placed.

Thank you so much for watching!!

The Biggest Dilated Pore of Winer?!

Today I present to you a “mother” of a cyst. I mistakenly call this a dilated pore of Winer when in actuality I would say this is an epidermoid cyst that has grown so superficially and has created a big “blackhead” on top so that it looks like a pore of Winer but as you can see in the video, there’s a cyst with cyst content and a cyst wall. We sent it for pathology and it was confirmed to me a benign epidermoid cyst microscopically.
