What is dermatology?
What are common skin conditions?
Eczema is a skin condition that can cause a red, scaly, and itchy rash. The condition can range in severity from very mild to severe. It is not contagious. Although there is no cure for eczema, Our doctors can help you manage your condition with a variety of different treatments, including lifestyle modifications, topical creams, and oral medications.
Acne is a skin condition that develops when your pores become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, which then leads to inflammation. If acne is interfering with your sense of well being or distracting from your natural appearance, our doctors can help control your symptoms and clear your skin using topical treatments or oral medications.
A wart is a skin growth caused by a virus, which typically enters your skin through a nick or small scratch. In many cases, your body is able to fight off the virus, but sometimes specific treatment is needed. Our doctors treat warts by freezing the growth to isolate the virus.
How are skin conditions treated?
Once the doctor understands your condition, they offer customized treatment to both relieve your symptoms and address the underlying condition causing it. Treatment for dermatologic conditions can involve a combination of topical creams, ointments, and oral medications. Our doctors fully customize your dermatology treatments to address your individual needs.
You may have regular dermatology appointments with our doctors to check the progress of your treatment and make adjustments, as necessary. Sometimes it is necessary to try several different treatments to maximize results.
