INNOVATION IN DERMATOLOGY
I N N O V A T I O N I N D E R M A T O L O G Y
DR. MILTON MOORE
Can I ask you a little bit about yourself?
Dr. Moore: Sure, I will be glad to talk with you. I’m a dermatologist. Originally, I attended Xavier University in New Orleans and became a pharmacist. I went on to Meharry Medical School to become a physician. Then I went to Howard University to become a dermatologist. Being a dermatologist, I started designing products that would help problems that many people have. I had a problem with razor bumps. When I would shave, I would cut the bumps, and they would bleed. I got tired of it and said, "I keep writing prescriptions for this, but nothing is working, so I need to come up with something that will make this condition better. " That’s when I went into creating products that made my skin better and decided that I would make those products available to help other people like myself all over the world.
Why did you choose to specialize in dermatology?
Dr. Moore: Well, it allowed me to use my pharmacy knowledge to my best ability. It was just a natural thing for me to go into dermatology after becoming a pharmacist.
What are common skin problems people are faced with?
Dr. Moore: There are a lot of things that are very common, but acne is probably the most common problem for the younger generation. You also have women that are post-menopausal who start having acne problems as well because of hormonal changes. Eczema would probably be the number two problem. That is an allergic skin condition where you get rashes that can itch and become seasonal. Eczema can be very debilitating in terms of scratching and rubbing the skin and can get worse.
Psoriasis is also a big problem as well.
What is one thing you know about skin that everyone should know?
Dr. Moore: You should know it is the largest organ in the body. You have to take care of an organ and hydrate it by drinking water. You have to also apply certain things to the skin, depending on the time of the year. If it is wintertime and the skin gets dry, you should use some lotion to moisturize it. You want to hydrate it. If it's summertime, you want to use a soap that is antibacterial to keep the antibacterial count down, so it won't cause odor that comes from under the arms or from sweat glands. You want to protect it from the sun, especially if you are fair complected. Sunscreen helps with that. Not only can you use sunscreen on your face, but you can also use it on your neck and arm as well. You will look younger longer, and if you are fair complected, you can reduce the risk of skin cancer.
