Now in its Sixth Edition, this pocket guide is the most comprehensive quick reference available on prescription and over-the-counter dermatologic medications. The book lists the brand and generic names of medications used to treat specific skin problems and provides concise information on ingredients, preparation, dose, and any side effects, contraindications, or interactions. Direct-ordering telephone numbers are included for over-the-counter products made by smaller manufacturers, which may not be routinely stocked in pharmacies.

This edition features new sections on antihyperlipidemics and keloid treatments. The section on alpha hydroxy acid preparations has been expanded to include new antioxidant and retinoid products.
