The skin is the largest organ in the body. It’s responsible for protecting all of your internal organs from harmful UV rays, toxins, pollutants, bacteria, viruses, fungi, and much more. Since the skin is constantly exposed to external elements, it’s susceptible to numerous skin conditions that affect your physical and emotional well-being. Our direct primary care physician evaluates your specific skin concerns, determines the root cause of your conditions, and curates a personalized treatment plan.
Eczema (dermatitis) is a chronic inflammation of the skin that makes it red, itchy, and scaly. It usually appears in early childhood and can persist into adulthood. There is no cure for eczema, but it can be managed with moisturizers, over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications, and prescription medications.
If you have eczema, it’s important to avoid triggers that can worsen your symptoms, such as stress, harsh soaps and detergents, certain fabrics, and extreme temperatures. We evaluate your symptoms, identify possible triggers, and curate a personalized treatment plan to minimize eczema outbreaks and alleviate your symptoms.
Hives are a type of skin rash characterized by raised, itchy bumps. They can be caused by several things, including allergies, stress, and infections. Treatment for hives often includes antihistamines and avoiding the trigger causing the rash. Sometimes, a short-term course of oral steroids can also alleviate the symptoms. We examine your symptoms, ask about your lifestyle to identify possible triggers, and help you manage the symptoms.
Rashes are a common skin condition caused by various factors, including allergies, infections, and even certain medications. But don’t worry – there are plenty of treatments available to help clear up that itchiness and get your skin back to normal. Depending on the type and severity of your rashes, we may prescribe topical steroids, oral antihistamines, or other treatments to clear up your skin.
Skin tags are common growths that appear on the skin. They are usually benign and do not pose a health threat. Skin tags can occur on any part of the body but are most commonly found on the neck, under the arms, or on the eyelids. While skin tags are harmless, they can be bothersome if located in an area prone to friction. We can administer local anesthesia and safely cut/burn the skin tag off.
A mole is a raised area of skin with a darker pigment than the surrounding skin. While most moles are benign or non-cancerous, some moles can develop into skin cancer. It is important to monitor moles for changes in size, shape, and color and to see a dermatologist if you notice any changes. We can assess and remove moles and take tissue samples to rule out the possibility of cancer.
