From the Editor…
As a rule, PRP patients and caregivers are given the proper spelling of pityriasis rubra pillars, the acronym “PRP” and a referral to Dr. Internet. Some of us reach out to Dr. Yahoo. Others seek out Dr. Google.
It doesn’t take long for us to learn that using PRP doesn’t work.
Enter “PRP” and the results are staggering — 27,900,000. On closer examination, we discover they are all webpages about platelet rich plasmas. For those who care, platelet rich plasma is used to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints, can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems.
In contrast, when we entered pityriasis rubra pilaris in Dr. Google’s search field, the results only totaled 172,000 webpages.
Fortunately, there are many webpages that offer PRP patients and caregivers immediate access to the resources of the global PRP community.
