Anthropomorphizing Atopy: Tweeting About Eczema
This article assesses the potential of public social media data to give new insights into patient perspectives through a thematic analysis of a random sample of 400 tweets from 2019 matching the query, “my eczema.” Although the most common use of Twitter is to announce a flare-up, it is also used to express anger and discuss possible treatments. New themes not previously reported include the use of humor to discuss the condition and giving eczema agency: discussing it as if it had a will of its own. These may be defense strategies against the potential of eczema to strike at any time or the fear of negative rea...

A Ringed Enigma: The Clinical Spectrum of Granuloma Annulare
Granuloma annulare is a poorly understood disease typically presenting as localized, nonscaly, annular plaques on the dorsal extremities. Clinical variants, such as generalized, patch, perforating, and subcutaneous types, exist. Therefore, granuloma annulare has a broad range of clinical morphologies and presentations. Knowledge of the clinical features, prognosis, and treatment options of the disease is critical for providers to appropriately diagnose and manage the condition.

Localized Scleroderma in the Pediatric Population
Localized scleroderma is an uncommon condition that affects the skin and underlying tissues. Although the pathogenesis is not well understood, lesions of localized scleroderma develop from an initial inflammatory reaction that results in collagen deposition, fibrosis, and atrophy. Healthcare providers need to be alert for skin discolorations or atypical ecchymosis appearances that do not resolve. Prompt diagnosis and treatment, particularly in pediatric patients, are necessary to reduce the risk of growth disturbance, extremity length differences, permanent damage to the skin, accessory structures, joints, and facial atrop...

Reframing the Care of Children With Epidermolysis Bullosa Through the Lens of Medical Trauma
Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a group of rare inherited genetic connective tissue disorders causing blisters and skin erosions, in addition to a number of other extracutaneous complications. There is currently no Food and Drug Administration-approved treatment for EB, and the current mainstay of disease management involves frequent, prolonged, and extensive wound care, which is often traumatic for the child and caregivers alike. Because of the potential for extensive wounds and other complications, children with moderate to severe forms of EB experience significant amounts of medical trauma related to their condition, both...

Safe and Effective Laser Hair Removal Treatments: A Literature Review for New Providers
Conclusion Practitioners interested in offering LHR within the primary care setting must verify that operating a Class 4 medical device is within their scope of practice. Despite the increased popularity of LHR treatments and the advancement of technology, there are limited up-to-date information on safe and effective treatment parameters and minimal information regarding the importance of patient education. More research is necessary to determine the efficacy of LHR treatments in both men and women of all ages and skin types. With no LHR guidelines in place, the best practice for LHR treatments is contained within this ...

Leveraging Teledermatology for Patient Triage
Nurses in outpatient settings face challenges balancing heavy patient caseloads while accommodating unplanned acute visits. Nurses also spend significant time triaging patients' symptoms on the telephone. Patients often find it difficult to accurately describe symptoms, and without accompanying images, unnecessary office visits are scheduled. Teledermatology, involving the exchange of digital images remotely between patient and provider, has shown promise in accurately triaging patients and decreasing unnecessary visits. At one outpatient dermatology site at a multisite comprehensive cancer center, a 6-month performance im...

Candida Infections in Clinical Trials of Ixekizumab (Taltz), an Interleukin-17A Monoclonal Antibody, in Patients With Psoriasis or Psoriatic Arthritis
Interleukin-17 mediates immunity against pathogens such as Candida. Ixekizumab, an anti-interleukin-17A antibody, showed efficacy treating psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Detailed here are Candida infections from 11 PsO and three PsA ixekizumab studies. Overall, patients received 80-mg ixekizumab every 2 or 4 weeks for 12 weeks (PsO) or 24 weeks (PsA) and then every 4 weeks. Candida (high-level term), six Candida subcategories (oral, vulvovaginal, skin, esophageal, nail, and unspecific), and four fungal infections (esophagitis, oral, oropharyngitis, and vulvovaginal mycotic) were included. Patients were cou...

This study aimed to assess predictors of sun protection behaviors based on the information–motivation–behavioral skills (IMB) model among people diagnosed with nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC). For this descriptive, cross-sectional study, a convenience sample of 311 patients with NMSC was recruited at a medical center in Mississippi. Patients were invited to complete a face- and content-valid, IMB-model-based questionnaire. The average age of the participants was 64.12 (±12.02) years, and most (58.8%) were male. Most participants indicated not using sun protection behaviors while outdoors. Findings showed ...
