From the Editor… PRP Awareness Month (November 1-30) provides an opportunity for the PRP community to revisit the PRP Survival Guide and reassess the current information. What’s missing? What information do you want to have available. What questions are in need of answers? Share your thought via email to editor@prpSurvivalGuide.org. The focus here is on treatment options (prescription drugs and topicals) as well as managing our expectations. We all learn early in the journey that treatment is a roll of the dice — what works for one doesn’t work for all. We also learn that not all dermatologists are PRP savvy.
