Orf disease
by Dr. Yiannis Neofytou
Orf disease
What it is: It is a viral skin condition, transmitted by infected goats and sheep, and caused by Pox-virus.
How it manifests itself and what is its course: It is an auto-infectious disease, within 35 days.
The lesion is usually solitary. A papule appears in a red periphery, while in the center it is whitish, thus giving a target image. The lesion initially oozes serum, but eventually the lesion dries, thickens and eventually falls off.
How it is treated: Therapeutic antibiotics are given for any infections.


Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
