Do public access fingerprint readers carry the risk of spreading skin diseases?


We are all familiar with those high-tech readers that banks and other companies use to limit access to certain areas of the building or record staff arrival times.

But are there dangers lying in wait for those with clean hands, who may use the reader after those who didn't wash their hands for hours or just visited the washroom?

As everyone presses their fingers against the reader's glass window, if there the risk that diseases can spread from one user to the next?

I have a really bad skin disease myself and i'm white colored skinned.
But i know a lot of white skin colored people that have a skin disease but i have never seen any dark colored skin people with any skin disease and i know a lot of dark colored people :o?
----------

Ya they do. Well, in terms of diseases caused by the sun. It's because of the amount of pigment they have in their skin, makes them less prone to the sun's harmful rays.

But, people with more melanin also have problems of their own. You see, because of the amount of pigment, often times they do not produce enough Vitamin K... which leads to a whole bunch of other health problems; such as cardiovascular problems, cancers, etc.  (+ info)

How good is tea tree oil to heal skin ailments or diseases?


Tea tree oil is obtained from the melaleuca alternifolia tree native to Australia. Possibly its use has not grown more because traditional doctors either do not know it or because the pharmacy industry doesn´t care for it and doctors usually do not recommend
products or medicines out of the stablishment.

Anyway is useful to people that good natural products get more known. So if you have good experience with this oil let all us know about it

Many people use tea tree oil for: athletes foot, cold and flu, oral thrush, cold sores & canker sores, tooth ache & gum infections, ringworm, candida, head lice or louse, cleanser additive, gum problems, mosquito bites, bug repellent, cockroaches, deter flees, mouth ulcers, herpes, cuts, abrasions, after shave, sunburn, anorectal or vaginal yeast infections, unwanted body odors, acne, toe nail infections, and many other uses.

Are there any diseases related to having pale skin?


I am almost the color of, well, white in general. I am fine with it, but I was wondering if it is a disease or something so. Nobody else in my family has the same skin, and I spend a great deal of my time outside, and I have light brown hair. I am related to nobody with red hair at all. Psoriasis (if it is spelled that way) runs in my family. I was hoping someone could tell me if there are any diseases related to pale skin. Thank you!! :)
----------

There are many diseases that have paleness as a common symptom, but you normally would have other symptoms too. If you have nothing else going on then you're fine, enjoy being pale! I know I do :D  (+ info)
