Hey Keith,
My doc mentioned an oral form of protopic several months ago. I don''t know if it is the same type of thing or not as the tazorac, but I am not sure if it is a retinoid, the way the protopic works which was explained to me was more like and anti allergy medicene, it subdues the skings immunity system so that it doesn't make so much extra skin. If you learn any more I would like to know about it and will let you know if I hear anything more. I read you were out surfing, that sounds like fun. Not much of that up here. Take care,
Michele Menzia
