Q:

What medications are used to treat hypothyroidism?

A:

When your thyroid is under active, like in hypothyroidism, the goal is to use medication to replace the missing thyroid hormone in your body. Many people with hypothyroidism are prescribed Levothyroxine (also called T4). This hormone is easy to take on a daily basis, and your doctor will help determine what dosage is ideal given your specific needs.

Q:

What are the types of non-melanoma skin cancer?

A:

Non-melanoma skin cancer affects the cells in the superficial layers of the skin. The cells affected are either squamous cells or basal cells, so the non-melanoma skin cancers carry the name of the cells affected (squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma).

Q:

What causes eczema?

A:

Eczema can be caused by irritation to the skin, and often this irritation can be linked back to something the person came in contact with. The immune system then goes into overdrive and it can cause the eczema to surface. Other cases of eczema can have a genetic cause to them, and eczema is commonly seen in families that have allergies and asthma.
