As a leading podiatrist and expert in podiatric dermatology, Dr. Tracey Vlahovic has seen her fair share of patients struggling with stubborn skin conditions. That's why she was so intrigued when she first learned about Dermeleve®, a revolutionary anti-itch cream that offers a powerful, yet gentle solution.

"It has all the benefits of a moisturizer as well as a steroid-free cream to help our patients," explained Dr. Vlahovic, who is a clinical professor at the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine and was the first podiatrist in the U.S. to complete a fellowship in podiatric dermatology.

According to Dr. Vlahovic, one of the key advantages of Dermeleve® is its versatility. "I treat a lot of inflammatory skin issues affecting the lower extremities, and I've found Dermeleve® to be incredibly useful, whether I'm working with pediatric or adult patients," she said.

Dr. Vlahovic has been particularly impressed by Dermeleve®'s ability to help reduce her patients' reliance on topical steroids. "I've used it in conjunction with topical steroids so that we can reduce the amount of topical steroids the patient is exposed to," she explained. "It's been a game-changer in terms of restoring the skin's natural barrier and getting people back to their normal, itch-free lives."

Beyond just treating her patients, Dr. Vlahovic has even found Dermeleve® to be beneficial for her own skin. "I have used it myself because I have gotten some itchy scratchy conditions over the years, and certainly even on the bug bites, because bugs love me," she said with a laugh.

One of the things that stands out most to Dr. Vlahovic about Dermeleve® is its versatility when it comes to application. "I can use it in all different kinds of patients," she noted. "I treat a lot of inflammatory skin conditions on the lower extremities, so I find great utility there. But I've used it in all other types of things as well."

According to Dr. Vlahovic, Dermeleve®'s gentle, steroid-free formula makes it an ideal option for patients looking to manage their symptoms without relying on harsh medications. "This cream has a lot of great properties," she explained. "It can be used during the day, in between any other topical medicated product that they need if they have itch and it reduces the itch."

Ultimately, Dr. Vlahovic believes that products like Dermeleve® are crucial in enhancing the overall quality of life for those dealing with irritated skin. "And that's ultimately what we're trying to do, is get these patients back to having a great quality of life, especially with their lower extremity," she said.

As a clinical professor, Dr. Vlahovic is passionate about educating the next generation of podiatrists on innovative solutions like Dermeleve®. "Thanks very much to Dermeleve® for all the work that you do, and looking forward to seeing its utility in the podiatric space over time," she expressed.

In her role, Dr. Vlahovic has seen firsthand the transformative power of effective, gentle topical treatments. "This is something that is practically for our patients," she noted. "It can be used with or without other medicated products to really help alleviate our patient's discomfort."

Looking ahead, Dr. Vlahovic is excited to continue incorporating Dermeleve® into her practice and sharing her expertise with both her patients and her students. "The whole thing is that this is a steroid-free topical regimen that can be used with or without other medicated products to really help alleviate our patient's discomfort," she said. "And that's ultimately what we're trying to do, is get these patients back to having a great quality of life."
