Skin Disease in Pregnancy

The EADV Task Force "Skin Disease in Pregnancy" has produced a number of leaflets for distribution to patients.

There are few good quality studies (prospective, randomized controlled) concerning the treatment of pregnant women and almost none for dermatological conditions particularly of topical treatments.  This naturally leads to the difficulty giving evidence-based advice which is desired in general.

The advice that will be given in our leaflets is based on the best available evidence. However, usually there are no good quality studies available and we have to rely on retrospective cohort studies the most.

The lack of good studies naturally led to different advice in different countries and it is impossible to know which is the best advice.

We aim for an overview of safe treatment alternatives and will leave it to the treating physician to give a final advice.
