Medicine’s Elma Baron discussed facial dermatoses 

Dermatoses often occur in people who wear face masks

Medscape: Elma Baron, professor at the School of Medicine, discussed facial dermatoses in relation to mask wearing. “Given the data, it is reasonable to advise patients who are already prone to these specific dermatoses to be proactive,” she said. “Early intervention with proper topical medications, preferably prescribed by a dermatologist or other healthcare provider, and changing masks frequently before they get soaked with moisture, will hopefully lessen the severity of skin rashes and minimize the negative impact on quality of life.”
