COVID-19 Clearinghouse for PRP


As a global community with over 2,000 PRP patients, my concern is that information about COVID-19 — as it specifically relates to pityriasis rubra pilaris — will find its way on the PRP Facebook Support Group webpage as a post, comment or reply only to be lost or buried. During the last 28 days (February 17-March 16, 2020) there have been 188 posts and 2,657 comments.

We want to harvest and make available accurate, patient-friendly information about COVID-19, as it relates to the daily challenges of body, mind and spirit faced by PRP patients.

I hope that this section of the PRP Survival Guide will serve as a clearinghouse for information about COVID-19 based on the needs of the global PRP community.

Please note that the “Leave a Reply” feature at the end of this webpage page will enable you to ask PRP-specific questions about COVID-19. If you have a PRP-related question about COVID-19, give me a crack at it.
