Medical Dermatology Q & A
What conditions are treated through medical dermatology?
Many diseases and conditions that affect the skin fall under the care of a board-certified dermatologist. Some of the most common ones include:
- External genital disorders, including lichen planus
- Irregular pigmentation, such as vitiligo
- Acute rashes or hives
Your dermatologist also helps with hair disorders, such as alopecia, and nail disorders, such as fungal infections. If you have any of these concerns or other issues with your skin, contact Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology right away.
Who should see a dermatologist?
Your skin is your largest organ, and a dermatologist helps you keep it as healthy as possible. Men, women, and children are all welcome in the office of Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology.
If you notice irregular moles, skin growths, or an unusual rash, call the office. Discoloration, blistering, and inflammation should also bring you in for an evaluation. And even if you don’t have a noticeable skin condition, you benefit from preventive visits that include skin checks.
Your dermatologist does a thorough evaluation of your skin from head to toe and can look in areas that are easy for you to miss, such as your back and between your toes. These preventive checkups look for precancerous or cancerous lesions. The sooner you catch skin cancer, the easier it is to resolve, so regular checks are important.
What are pigment disorders?
Vitiligo is a condition in which skin loses its natural color. You acquire patches of lighter skin that vary in size and shape. Vitiligo can affect your skin, hair, and even the inside of your mouth. The providers at Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology use Xtrac laser to treat vitiligo.
Melasma is another pigment disorder. This common skin problem is characterized by brown or grey patches that appear on the face, but can also show up on other parts of the body often exposed to the sun. Chemical peels and laser treatments can help resolve melasma to give you an even skin tone.
