Answer

The goals of pharmacotherapy are to reduce morbidity and to prevent complications. Topically applied agents that might yield improvement in some patients include topical 5-fluorouracil, topical vitamin D-3 analogues, topical immunomodulators (imiquimod), cholesterol/lovastatin, [92] and topical retinoids.
