Study Of Skin Diseases Related To Your Immune System

Description

Seeking people of all ages to participate in an observational study of immune-mediated skin diseases like Atopic Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Alopecia, Vitiligo, Hidradenitis Suppurativa and others. In this type of study we look at your medical history, but do not change the way you are being treated by your doctor.

Overview

We are studying the medical records of participants who have immune-mediated skin diseases like Atopic Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Alopecia, Vitiligo, Hidradenitis Suppurativa and others to better understand these types of skin conditions and the medications used to treat them. Participants will also be asked to complete surveys to find out how they are feeling. If you are willing, we will also collect blood samples, saliva samples, and/or skin cells lifted from you using a sticky piece of tape.

What we're hoping for

Collect data that might help us better understand immune-mediated skin diseases like Atopic Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Alopecia, Vitiligo, Hidradenitis Suppurativa and others and why some medications work better than others for different people.
