It’s human nature to be active and spend time with others, enjoying the outdoors. Without the right safeguards, you could be putting yourself in harm’s way.
Think of your skin as a shell that serves to protect your body from the external elements. Including the potential damage from too much sun, it also shields against disease and infection that can be transmitted by air or touch. Whatever is going on outside, such as hot or cold temperatures, your skin helps keep it from your body’s insides. That’s why the skin you’re in needs to stay healthy.
It isn’t always exposure to the outside that affects the skin. Modifications to your diet, shifting levels of hormones, stressful circumstances and other health conditions can cause changes to the epidermis (skin). While searching for over-the-counter medications or home remedies can be the common, immediate response, compounded dermatology medications often provide a more precise, long-term solution.
There are many reasons why some people prefer their medications be formulated one way compared to another, such as a gel instead of a liquid solution. We can accommodate these requests and prepare your prescription in a manner that’s easier and more convenient to use. After all, even the best medications can’t help you if they’re not used correctly or don’t reach the area that needs to be treated.
Receiving the correct diagnosis from your doctor is just the first step. Following it up with a personalized treatment plan is the key to proper healing. We can compound medications in cosmetically appealing bases that are non-comedogenic (does not clog your pores), hypoallergenic, oil-free, paraben-free and petroleum-free. Other options include topical sprays and powders, as well as flavored troches or lozenges.
We commonly prepare compounded medications to help with :
- Athlete’s Foot
- Nail Infections
- Topical Anesthetics
- Pigmentation Abnormalities
