Our Videos of the Month share your tips to help patients manage their skin, hair, and nail conditions at home. Each video, around a minute or two in length, advises viewers to visit aad.org/public and consult with a board-certified dermatologist. In 2021 alone, we tracked 5.6 million views to our Videos of the Month. In addition, our media relations efforts to promote the videos generated 215 stories and more than 378 million media impressions.

Top topics in 2021 included:

  • Nail fungus

  • Rashes

  • Splinters

  • Cold sores

  • Warts

  • Head lice

  • Excessive sweating

  • Burns

  • Dandruff

  • Wound care

Last year, we produced and published nine new Videos of the Month. You play a large part in what we decide to cover in a Video of the Month, and we work closely with the AAD Public Education Committee to gain expert insight on what your patients need to know.
