Physicians performing ablative laser skin resurfacing and medium-depth chemical peels should be aware of a potential, difficult-to-treat complication: facial erosive pustular dermatosis. Julie E. Mervak, MD, et al, examined the cases of three women who presented with persistent facial erosions after resurfacing procedures—either fully ablative CO2 laser or medium-depth Jessner/TCA chemical peel—for actinic damage, and were subsequently diagnosed with facial erosive pustular dermatosis. The case series was published in JAMA Dermatology (October 2017).
