  • “Our skin tells us a lot about what is going on inside our bodies.”

Our skin tells us a lot about what is going on inside our bodies. By looking at a person’s skin I’m able to determine what is happening on the outside of the body and get clues about what is going on inside as well.

The most enjoyable part of my job is being a detective. A patient comes in with symptoms, and I help figure out what is causing their problem and then create a care plan to help treat it. With children you can make a really big impact on their lives. Whether it’s sunscreen or skin care, I like to help build healthy habits in children that they can carry with them through their entire lives.

The great thing about dermatology is that everything we are dealing with we can see with our eyes. Not only can I see it, but the patient can see it too. Most medical conditions take place only inside the body where the patient can’t see the progress. When things are working in dermatology, I know it and they know it. You get to really see the results with your own eyes, and that’s very rewarding.

Abstract

Isotretinoin is a highly efficacious medication for the treatment of acne vulgaris; however, its prescription is subject to the strict requirements of the iPLEDGE restricted distribution program. These requirements have placed significant financial, time, and logistical burdens on patients taking the medication. The stay-at-home ordinances enacted by many states during the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic have accelerated previous trends toward utilization of telehealth and decreased laboratory monitoring in the care of patients on isotretinoin. Recent changes to the iPLEDGE program allowing use of at-home pregnancy tests to meet monthly pregnancy test requirements during the pandemic have increased availability of testing options for patients of child-bearing potential on isotretinoin. The change to use of at-home pregnancy test monitoring as well as long-term trends toward increasing access to isotretinoin through the use of telehealth are discussed.

Aquagenic pruritus in an adolescent effectively managed with beta-alanine supplementation. Pediatric dermatology Friedlander, M. S., Admani, S. 2020

Abstract

Aquagenic pruritus is a rare debilitating condition, which can be idiopathic, iatrogenic, or associated with systemic disease. In idiopathic cases, treatment can be challenging as options are limited and of variable efficacy. Here, we report the case of a teenage boy with refractory idiopathic aquagenic pruritus effectively managed with administration of beta-alanine supplementation, a treatment gaining traction in lay media but not yet reported in the medical literature. This report adds to the limited options published for treatment of idiopathic aquagenic pruritus in pediatric patients.
