Are Your Skincare Meds Making It Easier to Catch Coronavirus?

Dr. Zenovia, M.D., explains the risk factors associated with skincare medications and their potential effects on the immune system. She notes common oral mediation used for acne, spironolactone, should not be a large cause for concern. However, other medications for immune-related skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis can weaken the immune system leaving the patient more susceptible to catching the Coronavirus. Dr. Zenovia recommends meeting virtually with your dermatologist to discuss skincare needs amidst the current pandemic.
