As this is my first attempt at blogging I will start by introducing myself. My name is Raymond Shulstad, DNP, ARNP-C, BC, DCNP. I have been practicing dermatology for the past 11 years in the Tampa Bay area. I completed my DNP in December of 2009 at the University of South Florida, after finishing my dermatology residency. As with all areas of ...
The best care for scars starts immediately. Knowing
the proper care and treatment for potential scarring is important to know before the
damage is done. Among my favorite initial scar treatments is the topical
use of Biocorneum. This silicone based gel acts as an anti-inflammatory,
improves redness of scars and helps ...

feeble attempt to include a Harry Potter reference. This past week, a favorite
patient of mine, an older woman who has been hospitalized repeatedly for an
ESBL UTI and bacteremia called our office in a panic.
She was ...
I recently attended an aesthetics conference in south
Florida. There were many great speakers- seasoned cosmetic surgeons and
dermatologists, successful CEOs, and highly-acclaimed skin care
specialists. Aside from learning about new and improved aesthetic
technologies and techniques, a specific speaker enlightened me before he ...
Over the past month I have had some very challenging
patients. I will often question, why and how did someone end up here at the
correctional facility? I believe it is better I do not know. Actually, it is

There have been times in my nursing career when I have put
the pieces of a clinical picture together only to see something entirely
