Dermatitis herpetiformis

A 28 year old woman presented with a raised, red and intensely itchy rash on the extensor surface of her elbows and buttocks, in groups of small blisters. There was no history of trauma, atopy, or recent illness. She had no gastrointestinal symptoms or change in bowel habit and had not lost weight. No major medical or surgical history was noted and she was not taking drugs on a regular basis. Owing to the appearance and location of the rash, together with pruritus, dermatitis herpetiformis was suspected.

Interventions for preventing constipation after giving birth | Cochrane

Constipation is a bowel disorder that is characterised by symptoms such as pain or discomfort, straining, hard lumpy stool and a sense of incomplete bowel evacuation. Pain and discomfort during defecation can be a source of concern to the new mother who is recuperating from the stress of delivery, particularly if she has had perineal tears repaired or has developed haemorrhoids. Postpartum constipation can be stressful for women because of undue pressure on the rectal wall, leading to restlessness and painful bowel movements which may affect the quality of life of the mother. The administration of enemas before labour, the ability of women to eat during active labour, and irregular and altered eating habits during the first few days after delivery can each have an influence on bowel movements in the days after giving birth. We aimed to find all the trials assessing interventions that could prevent postpartum constipation. We examined the available evidence up to 30 April 2015. We included five randomised controlled trials (involving a total of 1208 women from the first day of giving birth) in this review. Overall, the trials were poorly conducted and reported.

Dual process theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In psychology, a dual process theory provides an account of how a phenomenon can occur in two different ways, or as a result of two different processes. Often, the two processes consist of an implicit (automatic), unconscious process and an explicit (controlled), conscious process. Verbalized explicit processes or attitudes and actions may change with persuasion or education; though implicit process or attitudes usually take a long amount of time to change with the forming of new habits. Dual process theories can be found in social, personality, cognitive, and clinical psychology. It has also been linked with economics via prospect theory and behavioral economics.
