Alternative therapies for common dermatologic disorders, part 2.

The exact pathophysiology and curative treatment of many common dermatologic conditions remains unclear. Often, conventional treatments are only partially effective, leading patients to look for alternative therapy. No new promising alternative treatments for aphthous stomatitis could be found in the literature. Acne may be helped by nicotinamide gel and azelaic acid. Atopic dermatitis may be helped by a trial of elimination diet, n-3 fatty acid supplementation, or Chinese 10-herb tea. Psoriasis may be helped by aloe vera or thermal baths combined with sun exposure.
