Our compounding professionals can prepare individualized therapies for a myriad of dermatologic problems.
Dermatology deals with disorders related to the skin. Your skin is the human body’s largest organ. It protects your internal organs from the outside environment. Therefore, it can be irritated or harmed by many things outside you body. This can lead to rashes, wounds, and infections. Surprisingly, your skin is strongly affected by factors within your body as well. Many inflammatory processes within your body (often stemming from poor gut health) can lead to skin conditions like eczamea, psoriasis and acne.
These conditions often require a multitude of medications to remedy. Sometimes these medications are taken orally and can cause many side effects. Sometimes the pill burden associated with the treatment can be overwhelming.
Compounded creams and ointments are a great alternative to many of these medications. Compounded prescriptions can combine several beneficial medications into a single topical cream. The cream is applied directly to the inflamed area of the skin, often avoiding many unwanted side effects.
