Dermatology Q & A

What types of dermatological conditions are treated?

The doctors at Night and Day Medical treat skin conditions, hair and scalp problems, and nail concerns. Some reasons you might seek professional dermatology care include:

  • Rashes or itchy skin
  • Eczema (dermatitis)
  • Allergic reactions in the skin
  • Skin cancer screenings
  • Bumps or growths on your skin
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Contagious skin diseases, such as athlete’s foot, warts, or head lice
  • Cosmetic treatments to improve skin

When should I be concerned about a mole?

It’s a good idea to take note of moles that change shape, size, or color. Melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, can begin with a mole. So be aware of what your moles usually look like, so you’ll be sure to notice if they change in appearance in any way.

Just because a mole changes, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s cancerous though. A harmless mole may become raised from the surface of your skin and become irritated when it rubs against clothing. Sometimes moles can bleed if they’re on a part of your body that you shave, such as your face or legs.

If you do have an irritated mole, the team at Night and Day Medical can closely examine it and determine if it’s cause for concern. They can also remove a small mole during an office visit for your convenience.

Can I get help with acne?

If you or your teenager is dealing with acne, the caring team at Night and Day Medical can advise you regarding a skin care routine to help clear it up or minimize acne outbreaks. Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, and it’s important to treat it to avoid scarring later in life. Seeking expert dermatology care to reduce the appearance of acne can also boost self-confidence in social situations.

If you or a family member have dermatology concerns, the sooner you seek treatment, the sooner you can heal from common skin, hair, and nail conditions.
