President Trump’s mandatory physical exam has been concluded and the results made public. We knew already that Trump has rosacea and was likely taking Oracea, but now we have confirmation that he is apparently instead, using Soolantra.

Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, M.D., the official physician to the president, gave President Trump aTuesday afternoon during the White House press briefing.
Mr. Trump currently takes Crestor, for lowering cholesterol; Aspirin; Propecia, for hair loss; Soolantra Cream for rosacea; and a multivitamin.
While Jackson said that Mr. Trump’s cardiac health stood out to him as particularly excellent, he advised that Mr. Trump lose 10-15 pounds and aim to lower his LDL cholesterol, which they are hoping to address with an increase in his Crestor medication.
Jackson said that despite Mr. Trump’s lack of an exercise and his penchant for fast food, the president is in excellent health, perhaps because of his “incredible genes.”
It must be humbling to have your entire medical status open to public scrutiny, and especially if, as indicated, your doctor is instructed to answer any and all questions.
