Helping You Stay Connected

One of the amazing things that we get to experience in life is a thing called connection. It is a fundamental necessity that helps keep us grounded. Connection with friends, family, co-workers, and even those not so close acquaintances and distant cousins can help us feel supported and confident. Often times, these people serve as our lifelines, making the difference between being able to cope with situations in difficult times, and becoming depressed by them.

Unfortunately, the expectation of physical beauty has made self-confidence and connection all the more difficult to attain. Media standards of the perfect body, a perfectly symmetrical face and flawless skin have created pressures that have exceeded already unrealistic standards.

It is these outside demands that are leading to psychological disturbances and impairments, which is reported in at least 30% of patients who suffer from dermatologic disorders. They may negatively impact an individual’s body image and self-confidence by contributing to anxiety, self-consciousness, and depression, thereby hurting our chances of staying connected.

Adding insult to injury, dermatological conditions and scars can further rob us from making new connections because, despite what really happened, people often assume and avoid people with prominent scars and skin conditions.

The pharmacists at Harbor Compounding Pharmacy sympathize with your plight and the psychological toll they can take. We also recognize that dermatological symptoms, even though manifested externally, are more than skin deep. They can often be indications of internal inflammatory processes gone awry which can be signals of something more serious.

Because of this, our team of clinical pharmacists took a long, hard look at various skin conditions that have plagued our patients and caused problems for our physicians to treat. We scoured medical research, studied the latest research regarding the pathophysiology of these conditions, tested various formulations, and feel confident in the recommendations we have made for you here.

We are excited to help, and even more excited to help those that have shied away from building connections in their lives. We hope that these treatments help you to regain your self-confidence so that you can benefit from the amazing thing we call connection.
