The PRP Survival Guide is a repository of experiences and insights shared by PRP patients and their caregivers. Collectively, the PRP community possesses a wealth of practical knowledge about pityriasis rubra pilaris. We need to harvest that knowledge for those in need of enlightenment.

Share what you have learned about PRP as a patient or caregiver. Share what you have been told by your dermatologist? Share articles  you feel might be worth reading or websites worth visiting. Please use “Leave a Reply” at the bottom of this webpage to answer the following question:

Should PRP patients and caregivers be encouraged to seek help from  mental health professionals?

  1. IMHO — Dermatologists should EXPECT that a PRP patient will benefit from professional counseling. A referral to a mental health professional (name and contact information) should be part of every PRP Treatment Plan. The dermatologist should also be identifying other healthcare professionals that PRP patients are likely going to need.

    ✽ Ear specialist

    ✽ Opthamologist

    ✽ Podiatrist

    A PRP patient or caregiver should not be surprised “down the road” with a problem that is likely to need more expert care than a dermatologist can offer.

    Any while they are at it, how about a referral to the PRP Facebook Support Group, the PRP Community on RareConnect, the PRP Alliance and a link to the PRP Survival Guide. WE should all be part of the PRP Treatment Plan.
