The association between the increase in the incidence of Stevens Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis and SARS-CoV-2 infection and anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination

In a recent study, Australian authors presented the largest case series of Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) that may be associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection and anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination. In a six-month period, they had 14 cases of SJS/TEN, seven times the incidence before COVID infection and vaccination. They proposed theories that could explain […]

Laughter as Medicine: Humor Therapy Reduces Depression and Anxiety Symptoms

Summary: Humor therapy might alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression. The comprehensive study comprised 29 diverse studies from nine countries, involving 2,964 participants with depression, anxiety, or both. While most participants reported a decrease in their symptoms, some felt the effect was insignificant. This lends support to the idea that humor therapy could become a viable […]
