Emerging evidence shows that both the gut and skin microbiome may be shifted in dermatological diseases like psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis. The influence of the microbiome will be reviewed in detail along with the impact of nutrition and the use of both topical and systemic medications.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will diagram shifts in the gut and skin microbiome associated with psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis.
  2. Participants will evaluate the evidence for the impact of nutrition on psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis.
  3. Participants will discuss how pharmacological interventions may be modified as a result of the microbiome related data.
