Tampa dermatologist Forman dermatology and skin cancer instituteAs his clinical trials for eczema continue, Tampa dermatologist Dr. Seth Forman has been given the go-ahead to offer patients 65 years and over an opportunity to receive what the dermatologist is describing as a one-of-a-kind, breakthrough treatment for sufferers of the skin condition.

Having already treated several eczema patients, Dr. Forman hopes that the eligibility extending to a broader audience for treatment will aid in the progression of the trials and continue to produce positive results. In addition, the expansion will make trials nearly available to anyone over the age of 18.

“It’s important that everyone has an opportunity to receive treatment,” says the Tampa dermatologist. “This will only help us to further determine the effectiveness of the trials.”

Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema is a skin condition characterized by irritated skin due to the release of inflammatory chemicals in the body. Common symptoms include a combination of itchy, dry and red patchy skin on areas of the body including the face, hands and neck.

Patients enrolled in the trial will receive subcutaneous (injected under the skin) medication at no cost, as well as free lab tests and exams by the Tampa dermatologist and his office. In addition, volunteers will be compensated for their participation in the research study.

“Our goal is for people to feel confident in their skin without having to constantly worry about the uncomfortable itch associated with eczema and the way they appear,” Dr. Forman said while speaking of the severity of the disease that affects over 30 million people in the U.S. “The more we continue to conduct these trials the closer we will be to providing them with that boost of confidence.”

Dr. Forman is the founder of Forman Dermatology and Skin institute, located in Tampa, Fla. and has appeared on TV shows across the country, including the nationally syndicated show “The Doctors” to provide sun-protection tips and to demonstrate his breakthrough skin cancer treatments.
