Participants who are candidates for a systemic therapy, defined as e.g. inadequate response to treatment with topical medications, or for whom topical treatments are otherwise medically inadvisable (e.g. because of important side effects or safety risks, patients with large affected body surface areas) as assessed by the investigator
