Some common skin concerns that our physicians deal with are:
Acne is a chronic skin condition that often causes pimples or spots on one’s face, shoulders, back and chest area. It can occur at any age from a variety of factors but most commonly due to hormonal changes in teenage years.
It is typically caused due to infection of glands that produce oil which are stimulated by aldosterone, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands in both males and females.
This skin condition is not malignant, but it can leave skin scars if left untreated.
Rosacea is a skin condition that typically causes redness and enlarged blood vessels on the skin. Although there is no known permanent cure for this skin condition, proper diet and lifestyle choices can help mitigate symptoms. Pimples containing pus may develop as a result of Rosacea.
Some studies have shown that common triggers for Rosacea include alcohol, hot or spicy food, emotional stress, smoking and prolonged exposure to sun.
Skin Discoloration (Melasma)
Melasma is characterized by brown or grey patchy discoloration. It is caused by a variety of factors including hormonal imbalance, birth control pills, sun exposure, pregnancy or heat and appears on forehead, cheeks and chin in women between the age of 25 to 50.
Some treatment options include topical medications such as hydroquinone or laser treatments.
Skin rash can be caused by a range of factors including heat, allergens, immune system disorders, skin infections etc. One of the most common types of skin rash is atopic dermatitis which is characterized by red and itchy skin on hands, feet, ankles, neck and upper body area. It can flare up at times and subside depending on various physiological and environmental conditions.
