    • Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol. 2023 Jan 26;16:253-256. doi: 10.2147/CCID.S394754. eCollection 2023. ABSTRACT Minocycline is a tetracycline derivative antibiotic commonly used to treat acne, rosacea, and other inflammatory skin conditions. Taking minocycline risks inducing skin pigmentation. If minocycline-induced hyperpigmentation is not treated, it may take months to years for the symptoms to subside after discontinuation of the drug, or the hyperpigmentation may never disappear completely, which can lead to cosmetic anxiety and affect people's quality of life. Previous treatment options for hyperpigmentation were mainly q-switched nd: YAG, ruby, and alexandrite lasers. This article reports a case of facial hyperpigmentation caused by minocycline using a combination of chemical peel and intense pulsed light in a patient with eosinophilic cellulitis (Wells syndrome) who was taking oral minocycline. This case suggests combining chemical peel and intense pulsed light is an effective treatment option for minocycline-induced hyperpigmentation.

    • Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol. 2023 Jan 11;16:71-77. doi: 10.2147/CCID.S391893. eCollection 2023. ABSTRACT PURPOSE: Rosacea is a common facial dermatosis, with flares induced by exposome factors. M89PF containing Vichy mineralizing water, probiotic fractions, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and tocopherol repairs the skin barrier and reinforces skin defences against exposome factors. This study assessed the benefit of M89PF in subjects with rosacea associated with erythema and sensitive skin during the Covid-19 pandemic using protective face masks. METHODS: M89PF was compared to usual skin care in a randomized, split-face study, for 30 days in subjects with rosacea associated with erythema and sensitive skin. Clinical evaluations included erythema, desquamation, skin tightness, dryness, burning sensation, itching, stinging, stinging test, and local tolerability. Instrument evaluations included erythema, skin hydration and TEWL. Subject satisfaction was also assessed. RESULTS: Erythema significantly improved with M89PF at both time points (p<0.01 at D15, and p<0.001 at D30). Skin sensitivity assessed by the skin stinging test improved significantly (p<0.01) with M89PF at D30, compared to baseline and usual skin care. Skin erythema, tightness, dryness, hydration and TEWL significantly improved (p≤0.05) with M89PF at D15 and D30, versus baseline and the untreated side. Subjects were highly satisfied with M89PF at D15 and D30. Tolerance was very good in all subjects. CONCLUSION: In subjects with rosacea, M89PF significantly reduces erythema, skin tightness, dryness and TEWL, and improves skin hydration and skin sensitivity, even when using protective masks. M89PF is well tolerated and received high satisfaction ratings. CLINICALTRIALSGOV NO: NCT05562661. PMID:36660190 | PMC:PMC9843703 | DOI:10.2147/CCID.S391893 {url} = URL to article

ABSTRACT Patient adherence to medications usually increases with age, however, it can also be impacted by other factors. Accountability is a psychosocial construct that is defined as the expectation for an individual to account for their actions. Accountability may also influence patients' motivation to adhere to their treatments. We assessed the relationship between age and perception of accountability as well as efficacy of interventions to improve accountability in a clinical study of 30 rosacea patients. Accountability was assessed using the validated Accountability Measurement Tool. Interventions to improve accountability included a digital interaction group and a digital skin analysis group. All patients were given ivermectin cream 1% and informed to apply it daily for 3-months. There was a negative association between age and AMT scores in all intervention groups, including the control group. Younger patients have a baseline greater perception of accountability that responded more to our interventions. PMID:36652005 | DOI:10.1007/s00403-023-02531-7 {url} = URL to article
