Adam Christman, DVM, MBA: What advice would you give to the general practitioner frustrated with their dermatology cases?
Joya Griffin, DVM, DAVCD: Those cases are tough and they do take a lot of time. That’s where your friendly neighborhood dermatologist can come into play. However, it’s really a multimodal approach. You have to individualize it for each patient, reduce the allergic flare, and put the itch out. So if you have something that you can utilize to help make them more comfortable, of course, we always need to do that. Topical therapy is a big piece of the puzzle that I think sometimes is missed.
