Eric's Case

Eric's Case

Eric, a 16-year-old male patient with type III acne manifesting especially in the facial area, approached dermatologist Dr Naftaniel. The inflammatory condition sometimes produced painful areas, particularly when the skin was dehydrated. But, more important, Eric was socially embarrassed.

The Challenge
Having tried all kinds of OTC treatments, bought by his compassionate mum, Eric’s skin condition only worsened. That’s when they consulted Dr Naftaniel. Eric turned out to have a very sensitive oily skin.

The Solution
With the focus on patient, prescriber and pharmacist, Fagron Advanced Derma offers unique solutions that add significant value to the customized treatment of patients with specific needs, including the acne patient with clear visible facial symptoms.

The Cure
Dr Naftaniel prescribed clindamycin HCl 1%, nicotinamide (vit. B3) 3% and tocopherol (vit. E) 5% in Fitalite™. The teenager’s skin condition improved dramatically within a month and is now controlled with a prescription of nicotinamide (vit. B3) 3% in Fitalite™.
