Alcohol consumption should be assessed and quanti?ed, and speci?c counselling to stop any use of alcohol should be given. Possible comorbidities, including alcoholism, autoimmunity, genetic or metabolic liver diseases (for instance genetic hemochromatosis, diabetes or obesity) and the possibility of drug-induced hep- atotoxicity should be assessed. Assessment of liver disease (...) removal of simeprevir. Adverse reactions with at least 3% higher frequency in patients receiving simeprevir in combination with PegIFN-a and ribavirin were rash (including photosensitivity), pruritus and nausea. Because simeprevir is an inhibitor of the hepatic transporters OATP1B1 and MRP2 [23], mild, transient hyper- bilirubinaemia not accompanied by changes in other liver parameters was observed in approximately 10% of cases. Because the primary enzyme involved in the metabolism of simeprevir

The differential diagnosis for acne includes: Rosacea — for more information, see the CKS topic on . Perioral dermatitis . Folliculitis and boils — for more information, see the CKS topic on . Drug-induced acne — some drugs can cause or exacerbate acneiform eruptions including dioxins (chloracne), corticosteroids, anti-epileptics (phenytoin and carbamazepine), lithium, isoniazid, vitamins B1, B6 (...) antibiotics Prescribing issues If acne fails to respond adequately to topical preparations alone an oral antibiotic such as lymecycline or doxycycline (for a maximum of 3 months) can be added. Minocycline is not recommended for use in acne as it is associated with an increased risk of adverse effects such as drug-induced lupus, skin pigmentation and hepatitis. Macrolide antibiotics (such as erythromycin) should generally be avoided due to high levels of P. acnes resistance but can be used if tetracyclines

patients in Europe confirmed that smoking influences disease severity and the efficacy of antimalarials [13]. However, other studies investigating the relationship between smoking and the efficacy of antimalarials in CLE patients indicate that cigarette smoking might not have any significant influence on the response to hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and/or chloroquine (CQ) [14-16]. Drug-induced lupus erythematosus (DILE/DIL) in its classical form shows all features of idiopathic SLE with arthralgia, myalgia (...) , serositis, and fever. The involvement of skin and systemic organs (e.g., lupus nephritis) is rare [17, 18]. In contrast, drug-induced CLE (DI- CLE) shows all typical signs of the various disease subtypes (Table 1) [19, 20]. DI-CLE was reported to have the highest prevalence in SCLE patients [5, 21]. The “Koebner phenomenon“ in CLE is described following traumas, scratching effects, operation scars, contact dermatitis, pressure from sock tops, application of liquid nitrogen, infections, heat, and other
