The primary treatment for CLIPPERS is corticosteroid therapy, which is used to reduce inflammation and suppress the immune system. Other treatments may include immunosuppressants, such as methotrexate or azathioprine, to reduce the activity of the immune system. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy may also be recommended to help manage symptoms. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove lesions or to reduce the size of the affected area.

What are the risk factors for CLIPPERS?

1. Poorly maintained equipment: Clippers require regular maintenance and cleaning to ensure they are working properly and safely.

2. Unsanitary practices: Clippers should be cleaned and disinfected between uses to prevent the spread of bacteria and other pathogens.

3. Improper technique: Improper technique can lead to skin irritation, cuts, and other injuries.
