Common Skin Conditions
It’s important that you choose a dermatologist who understands the skin’s connection to your overall health and that early treatment can prevent the onset of more serious complications. Here are the most common complaints we treat at Saratoga Dermatology:
Acne: Even though acne is most often associated with hormonal changes in adolescence, many adults come to our practice for acne treatment. Acne is both a medical and cosmetic issue, and our dermatologists understand the physical and emotional issues involved with moderate to severe acne. They work with each patient to create treatment plans that address his or her unique situation.
Rosacea: This condition results in flushed redness of the cheeks and nose. It’s caused when small blood vessels (telangiectasia) become dilated.
Moles: Our priority is to determine that moles—or other unusual skin bumps—are benign and don’t represent a health concern. Once we make a diagnosis, we pursue an appropriate treatment.
Psoriasis: The physical and social discomfort caused by severe psoriasis—red, scaly patches of skin affecting different areas of the body—can be relieved by combining various treatments. In many cases, topical and systemic treatments, along with UV therapy, can manage psoriasis and boost your self-confidence.
Eczema: Also called atopic dermatitis, eczema afflicts people of all ages but commonly occurs in children and infants. Patients have dry, sensitive skin with occasional flare-ups of itchy, red rashes. The cause isn’t completely known but may be hereditary. Treatments include cortisone creams and ointments and prescription medications. Avoiding certain foods, fabrics, and soaps that trigger outbreaks may also be recommended.
Rashes: Rashes can occur suddenly and for no apparent reason on everyone from infants to people in their 80s and 90s. With their experience, our dermatologists are extremely qualified at diagnosing and treating rashes that may be triggered by environmental irritants, allergies, infection, disease, or other factors.
Warts: These common, colorless, and typically harmless growths can make patients self-conscious. They usually occur on the face, extremities, or genitals and often disappear on their own over time. Many people want warts removed, which we may do using liquid nitrogen to freeze them off or using electricity (electrocautery).
