Female skin care brands are selling a male skin test, and the test is designed to detect and diagnose a condition that is more common among males.
In a study published in the journal PLOS One, researchers from the University of Cambridge and the University Hospital of Stellenbosch found that male skin samples were more likely to be positive for a skin condition called cystic fibrosis, which causes fibrosis in the skin.
“We looked at the genetics of this condition, and we found that males had a greater genetic component than females to this disorder, and that genetic variation was associated with this condition,” said Professor Paul Pertwee, who led the study.
“That’s what we thought would happen, but we found there was no genetic association between the disease and the skin condition, which is what we would have expected.”
It’s very important that the disease be treated early on, so that people don’t develop cystic Fibrosis early.
“The skin test is intended for people over the age of 35, and it was initially tested in people with severe cystic-fibrosis.
It is available as a single dose and a series of doses in combination, so the amount of treatment needed for someone who has cystic fibre is much lower.
The skin testing test can be used to screen for the presence of cystic or other conditions.
It’s also used to determine if a person has fibromyalgia, an illness that causes a persistent or recurrent pain in the joints.
The results of the study showed that the higher the severity of the skin test result, the more likely it was to be a male condition.”
Male cystic cystic was about twice as likely to occur as female cystic,” Professor Pertwinkle said.”
So, that was really interesting.
And we found, actually, that the more severe the cystic, the less likely it is to be male.
“The results are important, because it shows that the severity and frequency of cystinid is not necessarily a marker for the condition.
The researchers said that they were interested in more research into how skin testing and other treatments can help people with cystic.”
If we can identify what makes someone’s skin different, then we can target treatments that might be helpful for them,” Professor John Bostock, a professor of dermatology at the University Medical Centre of South Africa and one of the lead authors of the paper, said.
Professor Bostocks research focuses on skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and psoropharyngitis.
