The Dermies 2020 - Celebrating Beautiful Skin in the Movies!

Dr. Joel Schlessinger, Board-Certified Dermatologist, Cosmetic Surgeon and CEO of LovelySkin.com, welcomes everyone to celebrate beautiful skin, dermatology and the movies.

1917

1917 was one of the best movies of the year for dermatological content, even if not all of that content made it to the final cut. “World War I was a huge, huge event for dermatology,” said Schlessinger.

Trench Foot is a condition caused by prolonged exposure of the feet to damp, unsanitary and cold conditions. The exact conditions faced by Lance Corporal Schofield, played by George Mackay, in the movie. Schofield spends time in the trenches, gets his feet wet and spends a large portion of the movie running in wet boots.

“It was important that he take off his shoes and his socks – but he didn’t – so hopefully he didn’t get Trench Foot,” said Schlessinger.

Trench Fever is another problem soldiers faced in World War I. Trench Fever is transmitted by lice that were able to bite one soldier in a bunker and then move on to another. Mustard gas was one of the horrors of WWI, but something that led to a major dermatological break through. Nitrogen Mustard is used in skin cancer treatments.

The Irishman

“One of the longest movies I have ever seen in my life,” said Schlessinger. “And, there wasn’t a lot of dermatological content in it, but there was a lot of drinking.”

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face and can be brought on by too much drinking. “There are a lot of things we can do for it because it is caused by a little mite,” said Schlessinger.

Little Women

“Little Women might have my nod for the Dermies this year because Beth March had Scarlet Fever and you have a very sore and white tongue that becomes a red tongue. Eventually, days later Pastia’s lines form where you get petechiae that happen in the antecubital fossa in the arms and areas where there is contact with skin.”
