Dermatology Q & A

What is Dermatology?

Dermatology is the branch of medicine focused on your skin, hair, and nails. The East Tremont Medical Center dermatologists have extensive experience diagnosing and treating a wide range of skin conditions and helping to improve skin health and prevent skin diseases and cancer.

What Dermatology Treatments are Available?

East Tremont Medical Center provides treatments for a comprehensive range of skin conditions, including:

  • Acne
  • Rashes
  • Skin cancer
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Warts
  • Melasma
  • Sun damage

 

Your dermatologist can prescribe topical medications, such as corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and ease rashes and itchy, painful skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. If you have a wart, your dermatologist can offer different treatments to remove it.

East Tremont Medical Center also offers skin care advice to help your skin stay healthy and clear. For example, if you’re dealing with acne, your dermatologist can provide prescription-strength cleansers and treatments, medications, and special medical-grade skin care products to help clear your skin.

What are the Signs I Should Have a Mole Checked for Cancer?

Moles are common and usually benign.

Abnormal moles are identified by the characteristics “ABCDE”:

  • Asymmetry — Your moles should be symmetrical and round.
  • Border — Your moles should have well-defined and regular borders.
  • Color — Normal moles are flesh-colored or brown. If a mole is blue, black, or irregularly colored, it might be cancerous.
  • Diameter — Your moles shouldn’t be larger in diameter than a pencil eraser.
  • Evolution — Your moles shouldn’t change color or shape.

 

If you notice changes in your existing moles or new moles developing in your skin, you should visit East Tremont Medical Center for evaluation and treatment.

How Should I Take Care of My Skin?

Professional skin care and at-home skin care can help to keep your skin healthy and looking great. You should wash and moisturize with products that are safe and formulated for your skin type.

You might not be sure which skin care products are right for your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin, acne, aging skin, or a skin condition like psoriasis. Your East Tremont Medical Center dermatologist can give you customized advice.

Make sure you wear sunscreen every day, even if you aren’t planning on spending much time outside. Consume a nutrient-dense healthy diet with limited sugar, and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water to keep your skin looking great.
