Are rheumatologists familiar with the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and its co-infections? If not, who treats these tick-borne infections?
Infectious Diseases: Certainly a rheumatologist can treat lyme, but in complex situations, not only can a board certified infectious disease specialist a treat lyme, they can order appropriate tests to diagnose and then treat co-infections such as anaplasmosis, babesiosis, and erlichiosis. In addition, they may be able to determine if the illness you is due to something other than a tick-borne illness. ...Read more
What is the treatment for lyme disease and how long is the full treatment for a chronic infection? Can it be transmitted through sexual intercourse?
How and no: An antibiotic Rx for about 2 weeks would be enough in its early phase. The effectiveness for chronic infection is much less certain regardless of the duration of treatment. No you cannot contract this from sexual intercourse unless your lover happens to be a particular kind of tick. ...Read more
Can rubbing ground coffee beans on your cellulite make them seem less visible?? What about cold laser treatment for cellulite or ultrasonic cavitation
Tx for Cellulite???: All these at home remedies are worth a try but the %s are very low for improvements. Plus even the non-invasive therapies I have found to be limited. Except Thermi 250 RF sessions at a fee of $400/sessions for 10 sessions seems to give unto 50% improvement. As for surgical intervention the CellFina is a very poor option vs the Cellulaze, Where the Cellulaze using the addition of.....cont ...Read more
Cold laser: Cold lasers generally emit led lights which, depending on which technology is being used, help with wound healing, fat cell shrinkage (not fat cell destruction) and collagen stimulation. They are not as effective for collagen stimulation as other more aggressive lasers, but can help mitigate aging. Also, they do not hurt. ...Read more

I have coarse upper lip hair which is annoying... I'm only 18. I don't want to opt for laser treatment.is there any other remedy??
I'm getting a lot of burning on the bottom of my feet. I had another laser treatment and I don't see any improvement. Just aching and burning.
Foot pain.: This is tough. Plantar fasciitis? Thinning soles of feet. Trauma from weight, diabetes, foot arthritis, drug side effect, lumbar disc disease??? I assume that your physician has looked into these. If not, I think you might get them looked into a bit more before doing more therapy that isn't working. ...Read more
Freckles: Freckles don't need to be treated. However, they can be treated with a ndyag q switched laser. I have successfully removed 1000s of freckles from redheads with irish ancestry that don't want them. It is important to be sure they are truly freckles and not dysplastic nevi. Some people think that their dysplastic nevi (abnormal moles) are freckles because they are flat. See your dermatologist. ...Read more
Maybe: Keratosis pilaris is an unrelenting condition that never goes away. Lasers don't actually work get rid of it. However, microdermabrasion, ipl, and fractionated lasers can help to flatten it out and make it appear better. In theory, if you remove hair follicles the keratosis pilaris can't occur but I have not seen great results. ...Read more
Some lasers: It is true that some lasers which cause an inflammatory rea tion in the dermis will cause new collagen formation. How much new collagen is formed depends on the type of laser used and the settings of the laser. Not all laser treatments increase collagen production. See an experience laser surgeon for evaluation. ...Read more

Am considering laser treatment to get rid of my psoriasis, but haven't heard much about it. Any information/suggestions would be appreciated.
Scar treatment: Depending on the problem with the scar there are treatments to improve them but nothing will completely remove them. I treat pigmented scars with bbl to lighten them, thick scars with fractional laser to soften them, or bad or wide scars with surgery to cut out the scar and re-sew it a more cosmetically pleasing way. The laser approach requires a series of treatments to be effective--often 5-6. ...Read more
Endovenous laser: Complication chances are minimal. There a 1% risk of blood clot. There is a small chance of skin numbness as a result of thermal injury to nerves. Small chance of skin pigmentation / discoloration at treatment sites, but this usually resolves. Small chance of vein damage or bleeding. Have a board-certified vein specialist perform your procedure (preferrably a vascular surgeon). ...Read more
Raw honey, aloe gel: The cause of the scar and it's age are not noted. Scars take about 1 year to fully heal. I would suggest using ~ 50:50 mix of Aloe gel(preferably from a plant) and raw honey applied to the entire scar daily and as needed. When I burned my hand, I used a clean sock to cover my hand at night. Apply a dressing over the area if possible. Be patient and let time above treatment do its work. ...Read more
Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more
