Arthritis is a common joint disorder, often characterized by joint inflammation. About 100 types of arthritis affect people of all races, sexes, and ages. Common symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness in joints, and painful movement. Often the symptoms come and go, vary in severity, but the condition worsens with time. Arthritis impairs one’s ability to perform daily tasks. All of the above symptoms also impact people with arthritis in the legs.
Atopic dermatitis is a skin disease that causes chronic inflammation with complex etiology. The name is said to originate from “atopy,” a hereditary condition that predisposes a person to multiple allergic disorders, including asthma, food allergies, and hay fever. If you or any member of your family has an allergy, you may be at increased risk of developing atopic dermatitis.
A concussion is a minor form of brain injury caused by a severe blow to the head, accident, a fall, or any other condition that shakes the brain. When this happens, there may be outward damage to the head or face, but the damage to the brain will need a diagnosis. In most cases, symptoms of a concussion may take longer to show after the incident.
