Acne is a common skin disease that causes pimples. When hair follicles under your skin clog up they can cause pimples. Most pimples form on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Anyone can get acne, but it is common in teenagers and young adults.
Contact dermatitis is a condition in which the skin becomes red, sore, or inflamed after direct contact with a substance. Skin allergies or reactions to irritating substances or chemicals can cause contact dermatitis,
Eczema is a term for several different types of skin swelling. Dermatitis is another name for eczema. Most types cause dry, itchy skin and rashes on the face, inside the elbows and behind the knees, and on the hands and feet. Scratching the skin can cause it to turn red, and to swell and itch even more. We use phototherapy, including the Xtrac Laser, as a treatment option for eczema.
Moles are growths on the skin. They happen when pigment cells in the skin, called melanocytes, grow in clusters. Moles are very common. It is important to monitor the appearance of your moles and watch for new ones. Getting a yearly mole check by a dermatologist can help detect skin cancer early.
Our department offers phototherapy to treat numerous skin conditions. Click here for additional information on Narrowband UVB and Photodynamic Therapy (PDT).
Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes itchy or sore patches of thick, red skin with silvery scales. You usually get the patches on your elbows, knees, scalp, back, face, palms, and feet, but they can show up on other parts of your body. We use phototherapy, including the Xtrac Laser, as a treatment option for eczema.
A Rash is an area of irritated or swollen skin. Many rashes are itchy, red, painful, and irritated. Some rashes can also lead to blisters or patches of raw skin. Rashes are a symptom of many different medical problems. It is important to see a dermatologist to determine the cause of the rash in order to treat it correctly.
Rosacea is a long-term disease that affects your skin and sometimes your eyes. It causes redness and pimples. Rosacea is most common in women and people with fair skin. It most often affects middle-aged and older adults.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. The two most common types are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. They usually form on the head, face, neck, hands, and arms. Another type of skin cancer, melanoma, is more dangerous but less common. Quincy Medical Group’s fellowship trained Mohs Surgeon, Sumul Gandhi, MD, FAAD can treat your skin cancer right here at home.
Warts are growths on your skin caused by an infection with Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV. These can appear on your fingers, soles of your feet, or places you shave frequently. In children, warts often go away on their own. In adults, they tend to stay. If they hurt or bother you, or if they multiply, we can remove them. Chemical skin treatments usually work. If not, various freezing, surgical and laser treatments can remove warts.
