Is Bigger Always Better?

When it comes to sunscreen, does a bigger (higher) SPF number mean its better than one with a smaller one? There has historically been some confusion about the SPF number required to achieve adequate protection from the sun. It has not always been clear if SPF 15 is enough or newer SPF 100+ lotions are […]

Covid-19 Skin Rashes

As early as January 2020, a group in Thailand noticed that a patient with Covid-19 developed a skin rash. The findings were very similar to the rash seen in patients infected with Dengue fever. A short time later, Italian doctors reported that about 1 in 5 (20%) of patients with Covid-19 showed some sort of […]

Six Tips for Taking Great Teledermatology Photos

Five Keys for an Outstanding Teledermatology Visit

Consider taking photos of the areas of interest ahead of time. You can email them to us at info@keyderm.com.

Keeping Skin Health with Covid-19 Hand Washing

With the current pandemic, we’ve all been encouraged to wash our hands more frequently using soap and water, and for at least 20 seconds. While this is great for clearing viruses and bacteria, it can be brutal on our skin. Thorough hand washing may lead to cracked, red, itchy, and painful skin. Listed below are […]

Is your protein bar making you breakout?

For some time, dermatologists and nutritionists have noticed a trend: many patients taking protein supplements notice new or worsening acne flares. In fact, a few smaller scientific studies confirm these findings (Cengiz et al 2017, Silverberg NB 2012). Individuals who ate more whey protein- containing foods and supplements experienced worsening acne. Whey protein, which is […]

Does chocolate cause acne?

With Easter just behind us and Mother’s day shortly ahead, chocolate bunnies and boxes of chocolates are all around. Possible connections between chocolate consumption and acne have been debated for probably as long as chocolate (and acne) have existed. A quick google search of “chocolate and acne” brings up over 50 million results. These results […]

Rosacea and Caffeine

Rosacea is a common, chronic condition characterized by facial redness, warmth, dilated blood vessels, and pimples. The condition is sometimes called “adult acne.” It is most common in persons between 30 and 50 years old, women, and those with lighter skin types. In addition to skin changes, patients may experience itchy or gritty feeling eyes. […]

How to choose a sunscreen

While its important to wear sunscreen throughout the year, its even more critical during the summer months. Days are longer, people spend more time outside, and the sun is more intense. Choosing the right sunscreen for you, however, can be overwhelming. A recent visit to my local pharmacy revealed over 50 options for sunscreen products. […]

Molluscum Contagiosum

My son recently noticed some new skin colored bumps on his stomach and neck. Having a “skin doctor” father led him to ask me what was going on. He had developed molluscum contagiosum. Molluscum contagiosum is a benign skin infection caused by a DNA poxvirus. The virus produces raised dome-shaped skin colored to pink bumps […]
