Use the following to assist with the Q&A section of this webinar:

LB: It was both interesting and it was really easy to understand despite all these complicated names and such. So I tried to group some of the questions into topicals, IV, and injection medications. There are so many questions

Q1: Are orals as effective as an intravenous or injectable medication?

Q2: A similar question, how long is it safe to use a biologic?

Q3: Another question we have is at what point should treatment be started? So do we start earlier in the progression?

Q4: Speaking of early, we’ve had some questions about teens. Can teens start on a biologic in that age range, or do they need to wait until they’re older?

Q5: Is there anything specific to psoriatic nail dystrophy?

Q6: Can roflumilast be used for genitals?

Q7: Well, that’s a great comparison we have is roflumilast vs tapinarof. Which works better than the other or should we pair with light therapy? I was looking for a comparison slide.

Q8: We know that access to care is often a problem for many patients. Can you speak more to the high cost of biologics and insurance coverage?
