The yeast, which causes skin ulcerations and acne, has also been linked to other health problems, including asthma and cancer.
A new study found that the skin-ulcer-causing bacteria may also be linked to asthma and other health conditions.
Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, looked at more than 5,000 children from California, the state with the highest incidence of skin ulers, and also looked at the skin condition of 5,300 people from other states.
The study, published online in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, found that children who had experienced skin ulcations in the past 12 months had a threefold higher risk of developing asthma and a fourfold higher likelihood of having skin ulced in the future.
Researchers say it’s not known how often skin ulters occur and what triggers them.
But they say that the bacteria may help explain the increased risk of asthma in people who have been diagnosed with asthma, or who have an elevated risk of skin cancers.
“There are some people who are at risk for asthma, who have a history of skin irritation,” said senior author Dr. Maryann Siegel, an immunologist at the UCLA.
“And people who do not have skin irritation, for example those with very dry skin or with acne or other skin conditions, have a higher risk.
And the same goes for skin cancer, but people who develop skin cancer are at an increased risk.”
Siegel and her colleagues looked at data from more than 600 children in the state.
They also looked into skin condition information from the California Department of Public Health, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
They looked at both the children and people who had asthma.
They looked at whether the skin ulcation was caused by the yeast or other bacteria.
They also looked for whether the condition was caused because of the yeast.
“I think the study provides further insight into the possible link between skin infections and asthma,” Siegel said.
Siegel said the researchers looked at about 1.6 million records from the state’s health department and health insurance exchanges and found that more than 1.1 million people had skin ulculations, and that about 930,000 people had asthma, skin ulctations or other health-related conditions.
“The number of people who were affected by skin ulcs, particularly in the early years of life, has increased,” Sollowings said.
“We need to find out how the condition develops and what factors increase the risk.
It’s possible that a yeast-related skin condition is contributing to these increases.”
