Acne is known as acne vulgaris, a chronic skin condition where dead skin cells and oil clog up hair follicles. There is also an overgrowth of Cutibacterium acnes, a gram-positive anaerobe that is usually present in lower numbers without any problems. We can compound isolated medications are combine for a customized solution: 

  • Benzoyl Peroxide, which works by diminishing sebum (oil) production, a mild exfoliant, and is also bacterialcidal against Cutibacterium acnes.
  • Retinoids decrease cell turnover which in turn will lower the amount of dead skin cells that could theoretically clog hair follicle.
  • Niacinamide decreases oil production, shrinking pore size, and is also bactericidal against Cutibacterium acnes. In addition, Niacinamide has the added benefit of being gentler on the skin and has antiaging properties as well.   


Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in the body. It is seen as raised plaques and scales on the skin. The goal of treatment is to get inflammation under control and lower the skins cell turnover rate.

  • Steroids come in a variety of potencies from weak (mild) (hydrocortisone) to potent (strong) (clobetasol). It’s important to use them as per your doctor’s directions. The potent steroids should only be applied over small areas of affected skin or those areas that are thick and or scaly.
  • Coal tar is an oil and probably the oldest treatment for psoriasis. It reduces inflammation, cell turnover, and itchiness. *Coal tar can stain clothing and has a strong smell.
  • Vitamin D analogies, like Calcipotriene, reduces inflammation and slows the rate of skin turnover. It can be used along with or instead of steroid creams.



Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition that causes itchiness, dry skin, rashes, scaly patches, blisters, and skin infections. Itchy skin is the most common symptom of eczema. Eczema results from an overactive immune system that causes the skin barrier to become dry and itchy. The irritant or allergen turns on the immune system.

  • Emollients help seal in the skin’s natural moisture level. By keeping the skins moisture level intact, they prevent irritants and allergens from doing their damage. They also keep the skin from losing water that leads to dry , itchy skin.
    Steroids reduce inflammation and itching and are best used only for flare ups. These include Low Potency Hydrocortisone, Moderate Potency-Mometasone, Betamethasone, and High Potency Clobetasol
  • Topical calcineurin inhibitors are non-steroidal immunomodulators. They are steroid sparing and can be used if the skin area being treated is too sensitive, for example thin skin near the eyes and can also allow one to use steroids less frequently to avoid steroid side effects and retain steroid efficacy. These include Tacrolimus and Pimecrolimus.
  • Topical Vitamin b12 has been shown to be effective in treating eczema in both adults and children. It has been theorized that it may have anti-inflammatory properties when applied topically.
