Adherence to our treatment recommendations will not ensure successful treatment in every situation. Our opinion for the treatment of dermatologic disease should not be interpreted as setting a standard of care, but reflects our clinical and scientific experience in the pathogenesis and treatment of skin diseases. The ultimate choice of specific therapies must be made by the physician in light of any circumstances presented by the individual patients and possible variations in the course of disease. It is not the intention of dermacompass to repeat treatment recommendations, nor to serve as reference for specific dosages or indications of drugs. Many drugs listed as potentially useful for skin disease might be off-label in many or all countries. Therefore, please always refer to the actual national or international guidelines as well as national drug registries for dosages and indications.

The DermaCompass® app can basically be used with or without registration. The advantage of registration is that the user will be allowed to use additional functions of the app. In the course of the registration process, the user will be asked to enter its email address and profession. The email address will be used exclusively for the handling of the registration process (two-step identification). If you consent to receiving emails for surveys and newsletters, your email address then would be used to provide this service.

The publisher can use the job information anonymously for statistical purposes. There is no personal tracking of users of the app. Likewise, no user data will be passed on to third parties.
