Course Summary

Many types of skin diseases can occur in people that range in onset and severity. Dermatological treatment may be directed toward the management of an inflammatory process, comorbid medical conditions, or it may be cosmetic. There are evolving dermatology drug products and market factors that health clinicians will need to inform patients about when addressing their skin health concerns and treatment choices. The effect of certain dermatological agents in special populations, such as during pregnancy, can range from inconclusive to a known potential risk.
