What are common skin health conditions?
Some of the most common skin conditions we see are various kinds of eczema, psoriasis, acne, and rosacea and hair loss. There are enough different and varied other skin conditions to fill several large textbooks. As board-certified dermatologists, this is absolutely our area of expertise.
Why do my skin conditions keep reoccurring?
Why skin conditions keep reoccurring is totally dependent on the nature of the condition you have. Some rashes, such as contact dermatitis are caused by something the skin is exposed to and it will keep reoccurring until that cause is found and eliminated. Many other skin conditions are chronic and/or recurrent and may last from a few months to a few years to a lifetime - once again depending on which condition you have. Sometimes things like stress or diet can be aggravating factors which may cause a flare or a temporary worsening of your condition.
What is my skin trying to tell me?
We understand now that for some chronic conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and hidradenitis that the skin is only one part of what is a much greater issue. For instance, patients with psoriasis have a higher incidence of high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke than people who don’t have psoriasis. This is generally attributed to so-called systemic inflammation. The good news is that if you control the systemic inflammation with medicines that can help the skin, it can also help the other conditions which go along with it.
What treatments are available?
There has literally been an explosion of new treatments available for a variety of different skin diseases over the last 5-10 years. This is particularly true for eczema and psoriasis which are two of the more chronic and troublesome skin conditions to treat. If you are concerned that you may have any of these conditions, it would be well worthwhile to come and talk with us about what options for treatment are available.
