Acne treatment lessons learned from the military, plus new psoriasis guidelines and biologics delaying psoriatic arthritis

Military dermatologists play a unique role in managing acne because they need to consider the medical readiness of servicemembers during treatment. Dr. Justin Bandino, president of the Association of Military Dermatologists, talks to Dr. Catherine Brahe and Dr. Kristopher Peters about avoiding antibiotics or systemic drugs that can limit a servicemember’s operational duty status, which can be applied to civilian health care to help slow the spread of antibiotic resistance. They highlight uses of pulsed-dye laser therapy. “I would hope that many of us in the military setting could take advantage of our ability to use this variety of lasers and treatment modalities so we can contribute to the literature and make them a little more mainstream, and then maybe in the future some of them can be covered by insurance and can be used a little more frequently,” Dr. Peters explains.
