30 Jun Dermatology and It’s Importance
Your skin is extremely important. Your pharmacy should be able to prepare gels, creams, ointments, solutions and occlusive pastes that will be made just for your needs. Your products should treat, correct and prevent various dermatological conditions. Check out what the Compounding Pharmacy of America says about the importance of good dermatology.
Skin Health, Exposed
It’s human nature to be active and spend time with others, enjoying the outdoors. Without the right safeguards, you could be putting yourself in harm’s way.
Think of the skin as a shell that serves to protect your body from the external elements. Including the potential damage from too much sun, it also shields against disease and infection that can be transmitted by air or touch. Whatever is going on outside, such as hot or cold temperatures, the skin helps keep it from the body’s insides. That’s why the skin you’re in needs to stay healthy.
Personal Factors Change the Way Skin Feels and Looks
It isn’t always exposure to the outside that affects the skin. Modifications to one’s diet, shifting levels of hormones, stressful circumstances and other health conditions can cause changes to the epidermis (skin).
While searching for over-the-counter medications or home remedies can be the common, immediate response, compounded dermatology medications often provide a more precise, long-term solution.
Your Skin Is Uniquely You – Dermatology Medications Can Be Too
Not all conditions can be treated safely and effectively from your local in-store pharmacy. If you’ve consulted a dermatologist and your current medications have not yielded the results you’re looking for, then customized compounded medications could be the answer to better skin.
Any compounding pharmacy will formulate custom dermatology medications to your exact specifications to speed up healing and provide relief for your skin.
Topical Dermatology Medications Are Welcome Alternatives
Personalized, topical treatments involve more than preparing medications into cream. (Although, in some cases, this is the preferred method of preparation for treating certain conditions.) Compounding pharmacists can also prepare topical lotions for the scalp or topical lacquers for nails.
Compounded dermatology medications can treat skin conditions such as:
- Scarring and Keloids
- Decubitus Ulcers
- Peristomal Dermatoses
- Excessive Sweating
- Stretch Marks
- Diaper Rash
- Vitiligo and Melasma
- And much more
