Medical or general dermatology involves the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for diseases of the skin, hair, lips and mouth. As internal diseases can also affect the skin, medical dermatologists analyse the affected area through a visual examination and then treat the patient’s condition.
As the human skin is the largest organ of the body, and serves as a way to filter what goes in and out of the body, there are different internal and external factors that can affect the health and condition of a person’s skin. Medical dermatologists are familiar with all of these issues, and they are able to use their broad knowledge base to create a diagnosis and treatment plan that best helps their patients deal with the skin condition they have.
Skin conditions that you can seek a medical dermatologist’s help range from things like acne, eczema, alopecia areata, bacterial skin infections, keloids, psoriasis and even viral warts. If you are experiencing skin concerns or issues, contact Thomson Specialist Skin Centre to set up your appointment. You will receive a screening, visual inspection, and have the opportunity to discuss any skin care questions or issues that you may have.
