Several skin conditions are covered by the term rash. A rash is usually red with blisters or small bumps. Most rashes are harmless and eventually disappear without medication or with over-the-counter moisturizing lotions, antihistamines and anti-itch creams. If your rash doesn’t clear up quickly or there are other symptoms associated with the rash such as chills, fever and body aches, then you need to see our dermatologist for an in-office evaluation.
Moles are a common condition for almost everyone. Most people have about 30 moles, and most of them are harmless. They are usually round or oval in shape and can appear in many colors. Moles are formed when the cells responsible for skin pigmentation grow in clusters. Two things can happen with moles. They are no problem, or they turn into skin cancer. If you have a mole that you think could be a problem, then you should have an examination done by our dermatologist. If you have any close relatives who had melanoma, then you may be at higher risk to get it.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. Millions of new skin cancer cases are discovered each year in the U.S. alone, which is about equal to all other cancers combined. If caught early, some types of skin cancer can be cured. If you suffered from skin cancer in the past, you may be at risk of developing a new one, which is why regular visits to our dermatologist are very important.
