Low-dose naltrexone (LDN) has become a hot topic in many fields of medicine, including dermatology. It has gained popularity as an alternative, off-label treatment that works by targeting inflammation. Patients may ask you about LDN as a treatment option for a variety of inflammatory skin conditions, specifically in comparison to more traditional systemic treatments. It is important for dermatologists to know what LDN is, how it works, how to prescribe it, and what side effects should be monitored.
