Since 2002, doctors and researchers have used a standard rosacea classification system to provide consistent terminology, as well as to facilitate studies, clinical diagnosis, and treatment. However, in 2018, the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology published a new standard classification system that replaces the previous one[1]. Below is some of the most importantRead more

Rosacea is a common condition occurring on the convexities of the face and affecting middle-aged persons. It may be caused or worsened by a variety of different factors, including genetics; problems with the blood vessels in the face, the nervous system, and/or the immune system; the presence of Demodex mites; and environmental factors. It isRead more

Over the last two decades, biologics have improved the management of patients with psoriasis and advanced melanoma, many of whom either did not respond to traditional treatments or experienced severe side effects from them. With their success in deadly forms of melanoma and more common chronic inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis, drug developers are now targeting rarerRead more

In a fast-paced digital world, healthcare has had to adapt to better serve consumers who increasingly prefer or rely on web- or app-based services. Telehealth (or e-health) solutions are providing increased access to care, making it easier not only for patients to receive care, but also for healthcare professionals to deliver that care. For healthcare professionalsRead more

We’ve previously discussed several issues around psoriasis, including the pathogenesis of the condition and the challenges (and solutions!) of conducting psoriasis clinical trials. Today we turn toward three strategies for treating it. Although moisturizer may be an effective solution for some cases of mild psoriasis, many patients require medical intervention to ease their symptoms andRead more

Acne is a common, complex skin disorder most people experience at some point in their lives. While many treatments are currently available, options for severe acne are limited. Additionally, clinicians are aiming to reduce long-term broad-spectrum antibiotic use, which is becoming less effective as antibiotic resistance becomes more common. Possible solutions? More effective topical treatments and targeted therapies. HereRead more

While there is currently no cure for atopic dermatitis (AD) — commonly called eczema — this prevalent condition can often be well managed through conventional drug therapies. Current AD strategies used by dermatologists include symptom relief, patient/parent education, and the prevention of secondary complications. The “Gold Standard” for Mild to Moderate Atopic Dermatitis The most frequently used therapiesRead more

Biologics have revolutionized psoriasis treatment over the last two decades. These targeted immunomodulatory therapies act directly on the cytokine pathways that are upregulated in psoriasis and other autoimmune diseases. Two major classes make up biologics in psoriasis treatment: tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors and interleukin (IL) inhibitors. TNF Inhibitors TNF inhibitors became the first available biologicRead more
