What You Need to Know about OTC Dermatology Medications

January 10, 2022

Gilberto Saenz III, MPAS, PA-C, interviews Tina Moussally, MPAS, PA-C, about her thoughts and experience related to “Over the Counter Dermatology Medications,” in a discussion based on Moussally’s thoughtful presentation delivered at the SDPA 19th Annual Fall Conference in Los Angeles. The two healthcare professionals share their experiences working with patients who show up for an appointment carrying a bag full of OTC projects they’ve tried and failed – and ask for help! Moussally notes that many out-of-patent medications with good safety data eventually may find their way to retail shelves. And, she adds there are some websites and retailers that provide in-depth listings of all ingredients included in OTC products, which can be tremendously helpful to prescribers.
