Skin conditions will likely affect every one of us at some point in our lives. From mild and temporary skin irritations to severe or chronic skin diseases, we offer a variety of treatment options for almost all of them.
Though skin diseases are far-ranging in nature and type, here are some common conditions our Dermatology team treats at Memorial Clinic:
Psoriasis is a condition where patches of skin turns whitish and scaly. Areas generally impacted by psoriasis include knees, elbows, feet, and palms of the hand. The affected areas of skin can be sensitive to touch, feel like they are burning, and may be a source of embarrassment for some people.
Treatments for psoriasis include topical creams, light therapy, oral medication, and injections.
Eczema is a potentially long-term skin disease that can affect almost any area of your body. It looks like little red bumps or rashes that may itch and are generally very dry. If you have a family member with eczema, you are more likely to have it.
Common remedies for mild eczema include reducing stress, taking short, lukewarm showers, and using mild soaps and skin moisturizers. If you have a more stubborn case of eczema, our dermatology team may recommend prescription topical creams, oral medications, and ultraviolet light therapy.
Rosacea causes excessive flushing and redness of the face, generally in the cheek and nose area. In some cases, patients with rosacea may also develop frequent pimples, experience swelling around the nose, and the affected skin may grow thicker over time.
Rosacea does not have a cure, but there are many ways to manage it. Treatments for rosacea include various over-the-counter and prescription skin creams, oral antibiotics and, in severe case, cosmetic surgery.
Our dermatologists can help you select the most appropriate treatment for managing your skin. If you are experiencing skin irritation, call today to schedule an appointment with our Dermatology team.
