See Your Dermatologist To Treat Many Skin, Hair, and Nail Problems

Dermatologists treat a multitude of conditions that involve skin, hair, scalp, and nails, so that covers a pretty wide territory. Infections, lesions (that may be cancerous), and itchy skin outbreaks are all in a day’s work for your dermatologist.

Some of the many conditions that dermatologists treat include the following:

  • Hives—The formation of tiny pink welts that occur over large areas, such as all over your back, is one of the hallmarks of this disease. While the episodes may only last a couple of hours and then recede, they are nonetheless annoying, itchy, and irritating. They are often caused by allergic reactions that come from certain foods and medicines.
  • Severe acne—Acne is often found on the face, back, neck and shoulders and as almost everyone knows it consists of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, cysts and nodules. It can also develop robust outbreaks on the upper arms and gluteus maximus which is Latin for your derriere (that’s French!).
  • Skin rashes—Dermatitis is a common rash that can have a rapid onset, and it is especially common in children. It can be very distressing with all the itching, redness and possible infections, so see your dermatologist for relief.
  • Thinning hair and dandruff—Your hair tends to thin out as you get older and scalp conditions like dandruff become more prevalent.
