Actinic keratosis is the skin lesions that occur because of exposure to the sun directly for a longer duration. The risk of developing these is directly proportional to the amount and duration of sun exposure. These are more commonly seen in old age people, fair skin individuals, males, and in immunosuppressive patients. When the skin is exposed to UV radiation for a longer duration it causes various changes in the skin layer, altering the regular pathways of cell growth and causing the inflammation.

Introduction The order Sarcoptiformes, class Arachnida, and subclass Acari all include the Sarcoptes scabiei. Scabies was one of the first human ailments for which a cause could be found. The perpetrator is the mite Sarcoptes scabiei, which is found in the epidermis of numerous mammals, including humans. This mite was first known as Acarus scabiei DeGeer, 1778, before changing its name to S. scabiei (Latreille 1802). Over the past 40 years, research has substantially advanced our understanding of the biology of the mite, interactions between the parasite and the host, and tactics used to circumvent the host's defences. What is ... Read More

Introduction The damping in very simple words is an opposing influence on the motion of any object. Electromagnetic damping is deeply related to the concept of electromagnetic induction, hence it is very important to learn about the induction of electro-motive force (emf) in the first place. Through this tutorial, we shall discuss why the induced currents ( eddy currents) are formed and how they influence the motion of the object or the conductor. The relation and proportionality of electromagnetic damping with various factors like the strength of the magnetic field, the velocity of the object, induced current value, etc is ... Read More
