Nutrition and Inflammatory Skin Disease- current understanding and future perspectives

This webinar will cover the evidence basis for the role of nutrition in inflammatory skin disease. From epidemiological studies to interventional trials, what is the evidence for and against dietary modifications in the treatment of Acne, Psoriasis and Atopic Eczema. We will also explore our current understanding of the role of the gut microbiome and its contribution to inflammatory skin disease and its potential as a therapeutic target. Tuesday, 4 May, 2021 -12:00 to13:00United Kingdom

CONCLUSIONS: The latest developments in this field show the enormous potential of AI-based diagnostics and follow-up of dermatological clinical pictures by means of an autonomous computer-based image analysis. These noninvasive, optical examination methods provide valuable additional information, but dermatological interaction remains indispensable in daily clinical practice.

MA Abstract The prevalence of psychological disorders in patients with common skin diseases was assessed in a large representative sample of the French adult population. General health, as measured by the EQ5D score, was significantly lower if patients reported having rosacea, atopic dermatitis, urticaria, fungal infections, psoriasis or acne. The proportions of participants reporting being extremely anxious or depressed were higher in those who reported having rosacea, atopic dermatitis or contact dermatitis. Difficulties in sexual or conjugal life were frequently reported by people with psoriasis, atopic dermat...

In medicine, we are trained to be colorblind and treat all patients equally, to the best of our ability. The irony is that in dermatology we have to take skin color into account, because the color of the skin affects the presentation of skin conditions. This is important to consider in order to make an accurate diagnosis and weigh the best treatment options. Appearance of skin conditions may vary based on skin color Skin conditions may look different on darker skin than on lighter skin. For example, many rashes, including allergic reactions to medication, appear pink or red on lighter skin. On a person with darker skin, an...

CONCLUSIONS: We found lack of evidence to address our review question: for most of our interventions of interest, we found no eligible studies. The neurokinin 1 receptor (NK1R) antagonist serlopitant was the only intervention that we could assess. One study provided low-certainty evidence suggesting that serlopitant may reduce pruritus intensity when compared with placebo. We are uncertain of the effects of serlopitant on other outcomes, as certainty of the evidence is very low. More studies with larger sample sizes, focused on patients with CPUO, are needed. Healthcare professionals, patients, and other stakeholders may h...

Introduction: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) has been shown to have a negative impact on quality of life, even more so than psoriasis, acne and eczema. Research has only recently focused on the impact HS has on sexual health. HS patients may experience sexual decline due to pain, physical appearance, and diminished sexual desire. Dermatologists who treat this chronic condition are in a unique position to screen these patients for sexual health concerns and provide counseling or specialized referral

Dermatologic diseases have a similar influence on quality of life (QoL) and disability as other chronic medical conditions. Although QoL has been studied in relation to acne, eczema, and psoriasis, there is little information on how patients conceptualize their diseases - the illness experience. More information about illness perception (IP) and the impact of these perceptions on QoL, will help clinicians identify and address patients' conceptions, with the potential to positively impact patients' wellbeing. We sought to examine the effect of IP on QoL and make comparisons across acne, psoriasis, and eczema among a diverse...

Recently, cannabidiol has garnered considerable attention in the public and media as a trendy and popular ingredient in skincare products. Cannabidiol is a cannabinoid that lacks psychoactive properties. It has been marketed to consumers as being antiinflammatory, analgesic, hydrating, moisturizing, and wrinkle-reducing. Others claim it to be a cure for skin aging, acne, eczema, psoriasis, and pruritus. However, current data is limited regarding its safety and efficacy. Clinicians should be aware of current regulatory concerns and the limited available evidence.
