Release Date: June 23, 2022

In Episode 29 of Derms and Conditions, our host James Q. Del Rosso, DO speaks with Peter Lio, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology and Pediatrics at Northwestern University in Chicago, IL. The episode begins with Dr. Del Rosso asking Dr. Lio about useful patient questionnaires that he uses in his practice. Dr. Lio then discusses his use of the ADCT (Atopic Dermatitis Control Tool) which helps assess the waxing/waning nature of the disease.

Next, Dr. Lio discusses his use of alternative medications in dermatology and the criteria he uses for selection of these therapies. Specifically, the use of coconut oil is highlighted. Dr. Lio ends the episode by offering some tips on how to select the appropriate patient and properly counsel them on JAK Inhibitors for the treatment of Atopic Dermatitis.

Finally, don't miss the ending where we learn about Dr Lio's passion for Pizza, his crust preference, and which pizza place in the US has 'changed his life'.
