Warts, Moles and Other Skin Conditions in New Jersey
Dry skin, itchy skin, dark spots and redness—as the body's largest organ, your skin is vulnerable to a wide range of problems. Most can be treated. These are a few of the most common skin conditions we see at our New Jersey practice.
Contact dermatitis is a localized rash caused by contact with an allergen or irritant. Poison ivy is one cause of contact dermatitis. More commonly, people develop allergies to ingredients in skin care products, cosmetics, topical medications, dyes in clothing or rubber and leather components. Contact dermatitis can take anywhere from days to weeks to heal. Patch testing may be required to identify the offending substance.
Most people have moles. By adulthood, it's normal to have between 10 and 40 of these black or brown growths on the skin. While the vast majority of moles are harmless, they can be a source of physical and/or esthetic discomfort. Moles may be removed for suspicion of malignancy, irritation or a cosmetically unacceptable appearance.

Sebaceous hyperplasia is a benign condition that affects oily glands in the skin known as the sebaceous glands. These glands are responsible for lubricating the skin. In sebaceous hyperplasia they become enlarged and produce yellow, shiny bumps on the face, particularly nose, cheeks and forehead. This glandular disorder tends to affect newborns and middle-aged to elderly adults. It can be treated with cryotherapy.
Warts are caused by a viral infection. Typically found on hands or feet, they are contagious to both yourself and others. Many warts disappear after a few months without treatment, but some can last for years and recur. Warts can be removed with cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen), topical medications or injections.
