These bundles of whitish, relatively inelastic fibres appear on the surface as a scar after the healing process has completed itself. The deeper the wound, the greater the chances of a…

Telomeres and Ageing

Our bodies say more than we know. They tattle about our past, present and future, in ways that we are only barely able to understand.

Eczema

Is your skin inflamed? Dry, itchy, red? Sometimes flaring up with crusty fluid-filled bumps? Well, if it’s winter, it could be just the winter-itch. Or more.

Alopecia

Hair fall is normal The human body has around five million individual hairs. And a hundred thousand of those are on the head. A hair follicle is the sac from which the strand of hair grows. It anchors each strand to the skin. Cells within hair follicles divide and multiply creating fresh cells and pushing out the older dead cells to form the hair shaft. The phase when the strand grows is the active or anagen…
