Dermatology is a special medicine field which focuses on skin conditions. Dermatology also involves disease conditions that affect your eyelids, nose and lips, as well as your hair. Your skin is the biggest organ in your body. It has nerve ends, sweats, hair follicles, pores, vessels of the blood, and many other structures. Care for your overall health is important.
Acne treatment is dependent on severity, the dermatologist can treat the condition with topical treatments, drugs, lasers, or other light therapies, chemical peels, or by removing large cysts.
Cancer of the skin
Anywhere in your body, skin cancer can occur. A dermatologist will remove and monitor cancer cells to make sure it doesn't come back.
Dermatitis involves different kinds of inflammatory and irritating skin disorders. Eczema, cradle cap and allergic responses can be included.
Viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites all come to your skin and can cause different skin infections. A dermatologist can diagnose and prescribe treatment for the cause of infection.
Loss of hair
Hereditary baldness may cause the loss of hair. Conditions such as stress, disease, and hormonal changes can also cause the loss of hair. A dermatologist can recognize and if possible, help to treat the underlying cause.
Spots, discolouration and separation of the nail are common problems which dermatologists deal with.
