Skin Care Q & A

What dermatologic conditions can be treated?

There are a number of acute and chronic conditions that can affect the health and appearance of your skin. Dr. Surendran can diagnose and treat skin conditions like:

  • Acne
  • Warts
  • Moles
  • Rashes
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis

You can also receive prompt diagnosis and treatment of skin infections from cuts or other injuries.

What are signs and symptoms of common skin conditions?

Signs and symptoms of a skin disorder can vary from person to person. Some may experience an occasional flare up, while others suffer from chronic symptoms that can be painful and cause embarrassment.

Common signs and symptoms of skin disorder include:

  • Bumps
  • Dry skin
  • Itchiness
  • Redness
  • Cracked skin
  • Open sores

If you have moles that change shape or color, it can be an indication of skin cancer. It’s important to have a thorough evaluation of your skin if you notice mole changes or any other persistent symptoms.

How are skin conditions diagnosed?

In many cases, Dr. Surendran can diagnose a skin condition based on the appearance of your skin and your other symptoms. They can review your medical history and your current health to rule out underlying issues that may be causing your symptoms.

Allergy tests may also be useful in identifying substances that cause skin-related symptoms, such as rashes or itchiness.

How are skin conditions treated?

Your doctor can recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications for conditions like eczema and psoriasis, to reduce redness, swelling, and persistent itching.

If your skin condition is the result of an allergy, you may alleviate symptoms using a topical or oral antihistamine. Skin infections from a cut or other injury require a course of antibiotics.

If you have moles or lesions that affect how you feel about your appearance or those that change in color or size, Dr. Surendran offers in-office excisions. This simple surgical procedure removes the mole or lesion using a shaving technique.

Once they remove the mole or lesion, Dr. Surendran sends it to a medical laboratory for further analysis to rule out skin cancer.

If you have moles or other dermatologic issues that interfere with your health or self-confidence, schedule a consultation online or by phone today.
