Sun-protective behaviors and sunburn among US adults

McKenzie, Costner; Nahm, William J; Kearney, Caitlin A; Zampella, John G
Individuals can reduce the risk of developing skin cancer by minimizing ultraviolet sunlight exposure, though recent trends in sun-protective behaviors remain to be investigated. To evaluate sun-protective behaviors and sunburn among US adults. We analyzed data from the 2010, 2015, and 2020 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), an annual, cross-sectional survey conducted by the US Census Bureau. Multivariable regression models were stratified by demographic variables and constructed to evaluate sun-protective behaviors and sunburn avoidance across time. From 2010 through 2020, US adults had significantly increased prevalence of seeking shade (p value, 0.003), wearing wide-brimmed hats (< 0.001), wearing long-sleeved shirts (< 0.001), using sunscreen (< 0.001), and avoiding sunburns (< 0.001) and significantly decreased prevalence of sun avoidance (< 0.001). Disparities in sun-protective behaviors also exist among different sexes, ages, education levels, and those reporting higher sun sensitivity. This cross-sectional study found that by 2020, US adults had an increased prevalence of wearing sun-protective clothing and sunscreen use, though decreased prevalence of sun avoidance. Although certain sun-protective behaviors have become more prevalent, the incidence of skin cancer continues to rise. Efforts to understand drivers of sun-protective behaviors and targeted intervention efforts are needed.

Dermatomal Granulomatous Dermatitis and Vasculitis Following Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus [Case Report]

Martinez, Michael; Kim, Randie; Zampella, John
Cutaneous granulomatous dermatoses are uncommon sequelae of herpes zoster (HZ) infection that have been documented in the literature, with granulomatous vasculitis described in rare cases. Here, we report a patient with HZ ophthalmicus who developed edematous plaques with central scarring in a V1 dermatomal distribution with histopathological changes of a granulomatous dermatitis including features of granulomatous vasculitis. J Drugs Dermatol. 2022;21(10):1127-1128. oi:10.36849/JDD.6749.

Consideration of underlying immunodeficiency in refractory or recalcitrant warts: A review of the literature

Zampella, J; Cohen, B
Although the exact mechanisms have yet to be elucidated, it is clear that cellular immunity plays a role in clearance of human papillomavirus (HPV) infections as it relates to the development of warts. Patients with extensive, recalcitrant, or treatment-refractory warts may have an underlying immune system impairment at the root of HPV susceptibility. Early recognition of genetic disorders associated with immunologic defects that allow for recalcitrant HPV infection may expedite appropriate treatment for patients. Early recognition is often pivotal in preventing subsequent morbidity and/or mortality that may arise from inborn errors of immunity, such as WHIM (Warts, Hypogammaglobulinemia, Infections, Myelokathexis) syndrome. Among these, cervical cancer is one of the most common malignancies associated with HPV, can be fatal if not treated early, and is seen more frequently in patients with underlying immune deficiencies. A review of diseases with susceptibility to HPV provides clues to understanding the pathophysiology of warts. We also present diagnostic guidance to facilitate the recognition of inborn errors of immunity in patients with extensive and/or recalcitrant HPV infections.
