Today a patient came to me with a peculiar complaint. Whenever he goes out he attracts the flies in the vicinity! He has been suffering with this problem for last 7 years. Though he had mild axillary hyperhidrosis, there was no obvious bromhidrosis. Is this a type of bromhidrosis or a delusional state? There is a nice article on bromhidrosis here. According to them 'repopulation' of the intestines with healthy friendly bacteria (good quality Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacteria) may be helpful in some cases.

About Me

As a Dermatologist and Informatician my research mainly involves application of bioinformatics techniques and tools in dermatological conditions. However my research interests are varied and I have publications in areas ranging from artificial intelligence, sequence analysis, systems biology, ontology development, microarray analysis, immunology, computational biology and clinical dermatology. I am also interested in eHealth, Health Informatics and Health Policy.
