We treat patients with a wide variety of skin conditions and disorders. The skin is the largest organ on the body. Many people will suffer from some type of skin condition in their lifetime. Patients can schedule a visit with us at McKay-Dee Dermatology and Plastic Surgery to evaluate their skin disorder and enact a treatment plan for their condition.
Acne can range from an occasional pimple to a disfiguring disease. While often considered a problem of youth, acne is actually a common disorder that affects both teenagers and adults. Acne is caused by hair follicles that become clogged and inflamed.
There are many different options for treating acne. Most treatments are either topical medications (applied to skin) or systemic medications (taken orally). In some cases a doctor may prescribe both.
Psoriasis is a skin condition that affects millions of people in the United States. Most often, psoriasis is characterized by red, raised areas of the skin. These inflamed areas often develop into scales that are silver in color. These scales usually show up on the elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back. The cause of psoriasis is unknown. However, the condition is typically hereditary and non-contagious.
Although psoriasis cannot be cured, it can often be dramatically improved with proper treatment. Common treatments of psoriasis include the use of creams and ointments, oral medications, or supervised sunlight exposure.
A rash is typically identified as a change in the color or texture of the skin. These skin inflammations can occur on the skin for a number of reasons. Contact our clinic if you have a skin inflammation that you think may be a rash. Rashes are often treatable with creams, ointments, oral medications, or injections.
