Medical Dermatology Q & A
What is medical dermatology?
Medical dermatology includes the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting your skin. Dermatological conditions can cause irritation, itching, unsightly blemishes or rashes, and other bothersome symptoms. With the right treatment, you can clear and calm your skin.
The team at Moulton Group PC specializes in diagnosing and treating skin conditions using the latest research-based techniques. They evaluate you with a brief physical exam and ask about your symptoms. Then, they create a personalized care plan for your condition and monitor you throughout treatment.
Which conditions can medical dermatology treat?
Moulton Group PC has extensive experience diagnosing and treating skin conditions of all kinds. If you notice any changes in your skin’s quality or new or worsening symptoms, you should book an appointment for a diagnosis. Common skin conditions that medical dermatology can address include:
Acne is a common condition that develops when your pores become clogged with oil and bacteria. Without the right treatment, you can develop lasting acne scars and skin discoloration after a breakout.
Eczema is a common type of rash characterized by inflammation and irritation. It often develops as the result of an allergy or sensitivity.
Folliculitis is a group of conditions, including barber’s itch and shaving rash. It causes red bumps and sores to develop when hair follicles become blocked and inflamed.
Fungal nails can affect either your toenails or fingernails. It happens when fungus gets into your nail bed and infects it.
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease. One of its most prominent symptoms is flare-ups of irritated, scaly skin patches.
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes you to blush or flush more than the average person. It can also lead to broken blood vessels and acne-like breakouts.
Skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer, and there are many types. Some are likely to spread to other parts of your body, while others remain benign. They often appear as moles or lesions with uneven borders, unusual colors, and irregular shapes.
What should I expect during my medical dermatology treatment?
When you come to Moulton Group PC for medical dermatology, you’ll sit down for a consultation with a board-certified provider regarding your skin condition. They perform a physical exam and might take a biopsy of a specific lesion. Once they reach a conclusive diagnosis, they plan a personalized treatment for your condition, which may include the following:
- Topical creams and gels
- Laser treatments
- Intense pulsed light therapy
- Minor surgery or excision
While following your treatment plan, your provider might ask you to come in for follow-up appointments to make sure your treatment is effective. They can make changes if your skin condition persists despite your current treatment plan.
