Common Medical Dermatology Conditions

Acne

Acne is an incredibly common skin condition that impacts millions of people of all ages across the United States (and world). It manifests in several ways and is most commonly associated with pimples.

Contact Dermatitis

Contact dermatitis occurs when the skin is irritated and a rash develops after it comes into contact with a specific substance, with triggers ranging from toxic plants, like poison ivy, to personal care products and medications.

Eczema

Eczema is most common in babies and children, but adults can also suffer from the persistent redness and itching of this chronic condition.

Moles

Moles, also called beauty marks or nevi, are benign growths that appear by the dozen or more on most people. Though they are not dangerous in and of themselves, cancerous lesions can resemble them, so they should be monitored for changes over time.

Psoriasis

Another chronic condition, psoriasis is typically marked by the growth of scaly plaques on the skin. It can appear in a variety of forms.

Rashes

Rashes make up a broad category that includes a myriad causes and manifestations that can appear anywhere on the body, ranging from discoloration to itching to burning.

Rosacea

The chronic redness and flushing of rosacea is often accompanied by pimples, but this chronic condition is different from acne.

Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers in the United States, appearing in three primary forms that range in prognosis.

Warts

Easily transmitted, this viral infection may disappear on its own in a matter of months or years—though not everyone wants to wait that long for warts to resolve. Given that they are viral, they can also re-appear.

Common Medical Dermatology Procedures

Acne Treatment

Our medical dermatology team customizes the acne treatment to the patient, with options ranging from topical medications to oral antibiotics to other therapies.

Cryotherapy

The extreme cold of cryotherapy can be used to treat lesions and certain growths, as freezing them causes unwanted cells to die.

Mole Evaluation and Biopsy

Mole evaluation and biopsy involves one of our doctors sampling and testing the tissue as necessary to determine whether cancer cells are present.

Patch Testing

In medical dermatology, patch testing is used to confirm whether specific substances or chemicals are responsible for causing skin irritation it order to identify the causes of dermatitis.

Photodynamic Therapy

Ideal for clearing pre-cancerous actinic keratoses, photodynamic therapy is a medical dermatology treatment that uses light to address the unwanted cells.

Skin Cancer Screening

Regular skin cancer screening can help find possible signs of skin cancer early. This results in better outcomes as treatments can be started in a timely fashion.
