They, therefore, are generally considered immune suppressants, weakening the immune system.  Taking this into consideration, the best dermatologists worry about what this means for patients on biologic medicines for psoriasis during the time of the COVID 19 (Coronavirus) viral pandemic.  Considering that, some patients are deciding to hold their biologic medication until the viral pandemic has ended.

Chances are good you’re washing or sanitizing your hands more now than you ever have in your life.  With the current state of things relating to COVID 19, we have all become more cautious with our hand hygiene.  Our hands ordinarily take a lot of abuse.  Repetitive wet-dry cycles from hand washing and/or irritating chemicals in hand sanitizer can compound these abuses.  This is especially the case in individuals with sensitive skin.  Considering this, at Advanced Dermatology of the Midlands we expect that more and more of us will start to suffer from hand eczema (hand dermatitis).
