Dermatologic Compounding

Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of your body? As the first line of defense against harmful external factors, your skin acts as a protective barrier. It also functions with versatility to allow for sensation, to regulate body temperature, to control evaporation, and to synthesize vitamin D. The multipurpose role your skin plays means that keeping your skin healthy should not be overlooked. A broad range of diseases and conditions can affect the skin with a variation in presentation. From dryness to psoriasis, some conditions may be symptomatically severe or mild, and some may be temporary or permanent. It is recommended that you make an appointment with your dermatologist once per year for a full body examination or any time you observe something unusual on your skin. There are a number of medications currently on the market that can successfully prevent, treat, or cure skin conditions. Times do arise when available medications become unavailable. Some medications are simply not strong enough to treat the disease or do not tackle the condition from multiple angles using different mechanisms of action. This is sometimes necessary to relieve the several of symptoms that you may be experiencing at once. Compounding becomes an invaluable tool in the therapy of hard to treat skin conditions and also for cosmetic purposes. It gives your pharmacist, in collaboration with your physician, the means to create a topical cream or solution that specifically addresses your need. Multiple ingredients can be combined into one preparation at the strength that is necessary to successfully treat the condition and symptoms you may be experiencing. If you’ve seem to run into a dead end, we invite you to give us a call and we’ll find a solution for you.
