If this is your FIRST visit to the PRP Survival Guide, please read How to Use the PRP Survival Guide before linking to any of the four chapters listed below. Each page has a TRANSLATE button yo facilitate translation of text into one of over 100 languages

Chapter 1 — Understanding PRP  

These are the questions asked early in the PRP journey by newly diagnosed patients and caregivers,family and friends, co-workers and employers, teachers and school administrators, and so many more.         

Chapter 2 — Treating PRP 

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.

Chapter 3 — Living with PRP 

Every aspect of the PRP experience … coping with the 24/7 challenges to body, mind and spirit. Feedback by hundreds of fellow travelers who have shared their insights based on their unique journeys with posts and comments as members of the PRP Facebook and RareConnect communities.                  

Chapter 4 — PRP and Remission 

For most PRP patients and caregivers, the outcome we seek is remission. For others, the PRP journey is defined by long-term management of symptoms rather than remission.
