Here’s more information on a few the medical dermatology treatments we offer at Schweiger Dermatology Group:
Skin Cancer Screenings
Many patients don’t seek out dermatologic help until there is a reason to. This is a dangerous approach to take when it comes to skin cancer. Did you know that if detected too late, skin cancer can be one of the deadliest forms of cancer? On the other hand, skin cancer is also the most preventable. Being diligent about coming into the dermatologist’s office for annual skin cancer screenings is the best preventative medicine you can do for yourself. Our physicians have detected many cases of pre-cancerous growths on patients. Our specially trained board certified dermatologists have had experience and training in Mohs micrographic surgery, which safely removes skin cancer cells while leaving the greatest amount of healthy tissues intact.
Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema is one of the most common skin issues in America. In fact, it’s estimated that over 30 million Americans have it. Eczema presents on the skin as itchy, red and inflamed patches, all of which start with the urge to scratch. Once you scratch, the skin becomes damaged and releases inflammatory chemicals that lead to a vicious cycle of itching, scratching and inflammation. Our providers can help you break the cycle and get you on the road to recovery. While there is no cure for eczema, our dermatologists can help by identifying your triggers and giving you the proper skincare treatments to help stop the itchiness. Knowing the right tools in eczema treatment is crucial in managing this skin disorder.
Wart Removal and Treatments
Warts are a very common skin concern and with good reason. Warts can affect anyone from children to the elderly. Warts are benign growths on the skin that are cosmetically unappealing. Warts can easily spread from one person to another or one body part to another, which is why it is recommended to have them treated and removed. Wart removal at Schweiger Dermatology Group is a quick and virtually painless procedure. We also treat patients who have genital warts, which are caused by a different strain of the HPV virus than other warts. Genital warts require in-office treatment and should not be treated with products found at the drug store. Our providers are experienced with the treatment of genital warts and are on hand to help you with this skin issue. The biggest mistake many people make is to avoid medical help with their genital warts. Although it can be embarrassing, it’s crucial to seek out dermatologic help for genital warts.
