All of us at some time experience, or know someone who is suffering from, a common skin condition that harms their quality of life or self-esteem. Examples of these common conditions include acne, rosacea, balding, cold sores, dandruff, aging skin, etc.
In this “information age”, we want to take control of learning more about these conditions, and how to best treat them. A natural starting place is an internet search. Unfortunately, medical information gained online is fraught with inaccuracies, and susceptible to marketing influences. The best place to get information about medical conditions remains with a medical doctor expert in the field.
