The skin is the body's largest organ and functions as a protective cover for the rest of the body. As the body's defensive barrier, the skin is at a greater risk of coming in contact with harmful chemicals and other environmental hazards, including pathogens. Additionally, the skin supports regulatory functions including body temperature regulation, synthesis of vitamins, and prevents excessive water loss. As the skin is the body's only organ visible to the naked eye, a skin condition affecting the integrity of the skin is not only a health concern or uncomfortable, but it can also be embarrassing.
Dermatological care is not just for skin health, it also encompasses the hair, scalp, and nails and their conditions. Although dermatological conditions are not a leading cause of mortality, they are extremely common affecting up to 75% of the population and can contribute to significant physical and psychological disabilities. Often, the problem is chronic and requires routine treatments.
A dermatology patient may fail to cure their ailment with standardized medications, and be in need of a custom-compounded medication. Custom-compounded dermatological medications can be created for a variety of conditions including scars, acne, anti-fungal, psoriasis, warts, anti-aging, and general itching. Assured RX will work closely with both the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the individual needs of each patient.
Patients who have been diagnosed with the following conditions may benefit from compounded therapy:
- Atopic Dermatitis
- Fungal Condition
- Scar (Atrophic, Contracture, Hypertropic, Keloid, Striae and More)
