PMID: 29084194 Acne vulgaris is one of the most common dermatologic condition especially among adolescents. Acne is related to excess sebum production by sebaceous glands, inflammation both within and adjacent to the comedones, hyperproliferation of Propionibacterium acnes. Some of investigations show association between acne and diet. Milk increases the level …Read More »

A feasibility study for a triple-blind randomized controlled trial investigating the effects of oral isotretinoin on mood and quality of life in patients with acne vulgaris.
DOI: ced.13284 PMID: 29030873 Isotretinoin is used in the treatment of severe acne vulgaris (AV), but has controversially been associated with depression and suicide. Large prospective studies have failed to translate this clinically. We undertook a feasibility study to investigate the parameters of a triple-blind, randomized controlled trial (RCT) assessing the …Read More »
The Effect of Skin Sebum, pH, and Moisture on Demodex Infestation in Acne Vulgaris and Rosacea Patients.
DOI: tpd.2017.5068 PMID: 29035242 Acne vulgaris is an inflammatory disease involving the pilosebaceous unit. Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects the face in particular.
