‘A new era of keratosis’
The keratotic condition known as keratitis pilarissima has now been officially named after a local keratologist.
Key points:Keratosis treatment is now available in VictoriaThe termite management program will now be rolled out in other states and territoriesThe program will not be rolled into new servicesThe termites are the largest single source of exposure in Victoria and are the most common cause of severe dermatitis.
The keratogenic fungus, which is commonly found in termite colonies, causes serious skin damage and damage to the central nervous system.
The termitosis palaise is a condition that causes severe, persistent and sometimes severe, allergic reactions to the skin.
The disease is caused by a group of microscopic fungi, including termites.
The condition is extremely contagious and the symptoms can last for weeks or months.
The Victorian Government has been able to use the termite control program to improve the state’s access to termite treatments and keratoses treatment.
In the new program, the Government will offer a one-off $5,000 treatment for termites to affected residents.
In a statement, the State Government said it was delighted to offer this new treatment, which will be rolled in other parts of the state in the coming months.
“Victoria is home to the most number of termites in the country and the local termite community has been instrumental in making this an effective management program,” Minister for Primary Industries and Infrastructure James Pattison said.
“With the recent rise in the number of cases of the disease, we are delighted to see this new approach from the Victorian Government, which brings a new era for the state and local termites.”
The program is also expected to lead to a decline in termites being found in Victoria.
“There are many local residents who have experienced the termites, which are responsible for some of the most severe, debilitating and potentially life-threatening skin conditions,” Mr Pattison explained.
“While the numbers are increasing, the number is still well below the numbers in New South Wales and Tasmania.”
The state Government said the new treatment would not replace existing services, but would help people better manage their condition.
“The termitic control program will help address the significant number of conditions affecting termites that are currently not treated with termite products,” Mr Pittison said in a statement.
“This is important for the continued health and wellbeing of our local termitites and the broader community.”
