Skin Conditions

All skin conditions are not created equal but they do sometimes look similar in pictures. We recommend that you see your family physician or dermatologist for clinical follow up.

Acne

Acne is a condition that occurs from excess oil production, inflammation and bacteria. If you visit a middle school, most of the kids will have some sign of acne. It is normal for kids and teens to go through this stage. Acne usually begins at the start of puberty, and for some people continues well through adulthood. There is no real “cure” for acne; however, there are many ways for acne to be controlled. Not all acne is the same and for that reason there are various treatments and regimens that can be created for the individual patients. See Dr. Lima Acne Kit at our store.

Acne Rosacea

Is your face really red all the time and gets flushed really easy? You may have a condition known as Rosacea. It is an inflammatory condition of the face that usually shows up as an adult. Caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, extreme temperatures, and certain foods are some of the things that can exacerbate your rosacea. Rosacea can be controlled with a regimen that is formulized just for you depending on the type and severity of your rosacea. There are even laser treatments that can help. See Avene products at our store.

Acne Treatment

Actinic Keratosis

Over time sun damage of the skin can accumulate and red, scaly, sometimes itchy patches can develop. These patches are known as Actinic Keratosis and are most commonly found on sun exposed areas like the face, hands, and arms but can occur anywhere on the body. If not treated these precancerous lesions do have the potential to turn into a skin cancer known as Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Actinic keratosis can be removed with liquid nitrogen in the office are can be treated with a prescription medication.

Athlete's Foot

A fungus is commonly found between the toe webs and feet. Its itchy and uncomfortable. It is commonly treated with antifungal medication. It also helps to keep the area dry. See your doctor for the treatment of this condition.

Athlete's Foot Treatment

Eczema

Sensitive skin. It shows like red itchy dry patches that can be scratched until it bleeds. Sometimes by scratching we open the skin and bacteria can invade and cause infection. So sensitive that detergents, fabric softeners, soaps, colognes, lotions, shampoos among others can be really harming the skin. Product store- see avene trixera gel bath, bar soap, emollient and cream.

Eczema Treatment

Hair Loss / Alopecia

Many reasons to have hair loss. We can suffer loss after surgery, having a baby, protein deficiency, crash diets, after anesthesia, medication withdrawal, infections, chemotherapy, among others. Product store -We recommend Rene Furterer Reaccional hair loss kit. See your doctor for this condition.

Hair Loss Treatment

Herpes Simplex

A virus that comes in different forms. Canker sores, fever blisters as well as the herpes that is sexually transmitted and occurs in the genital areas. We recommend that you see a dermatologist to get a viral culture to confirm the diagnosis and get treatment options.

Lichen Planus

A very itchy condition on body and sometimes inside the mouth. Recommend that you see a doctor as you may need blood work to make sure that there’s no other medical problem.

Melasma

Melasma, or sometimes know as “the mask of pregnancy”, is a problem for many women. Melasma, is the brown pigmentation that occurs on the face as a result of hormones and sunlight. Melasma does not only come out when a woman is pregnant. Hormone treatments like birth control pills can also produce melasma. Although many times difficult to treat, with a good daily regimen and sun protection, melasma can be improved. See Obagi treatment kit in our product store.

Moles

For a full skin check got to your dermatologist once a year. If you’ve had irregular moles then see them more often and go in if any moles change in size, shape, color itch or bleed. We usually follow the ABCD rules in dermatology to guide ourselves for mole changes. Asymmetry, border irregularity, color change or multiple colors and size bigger than a pencil eraser.

Molluscum Contagiosum

You may notice that you child has developed recently little pearly bumps on the body. This may be a condition known as molluscum contagiosum and is very commonly found in children. The “little bumps” appear when the patient is infected with the Molluscum contagiosum virus. Just like the common cold the virus must be eradicated by the body on its own. There are treatments to help this process along and help the body fight the virus faster. The good news is that it will definitely go away and it is usually a virus without complications. See Avene products at our store.

Pitiryasis Rosea

A common condition caused by a virus. We are not sure which virus. It starts with a big mother ‘herald’ patch and from there multiple smaller red scaly patches spread all over. After 4-6 weeks they start disappearing. Product store- we recommend Avene trixera gel bath, soap, emollient and cream. See your dermatologist for this condition.

Psoriasis

A condition where the skin cells shed faster than normal. Here you see very thick areas with whitish scales, and very itchy. It is an immune mediated disorder. There are multiple treatments available through your physician. For those older than 5 years old use Avene Akerat cream and Avene Soap.

Razor Bumps

Common in men on bearded areas and women’s legs. The skin heals over the hair follicle too son and the hair gets stuck in there and a bump forms. We can treat these with exfoliants and soft creams to keep the skin from forming the bumps. See product store- Glytone serious shaving cream and Dr. Lima for Him Kit.

Ring Worm

or skin fungus is treatable by your physician. A fungus comes from soil or from animal source and invades the skin. It forms a ring like spot that itches and scales.

Seborrheic Keratoses Treatment

Seborrheic Keratoses

Very common skin barnacles. We usually leave them alone. They are wart growths that come with age and time. They need to be evaluated by your dermatologist.

Products:

  • Glytone body wash and body lotion.
  • Avene Akerat cream and Avene soap.

Tinea Versicolor

During the summer many people come to our office with ‘sun spots’ usually on their back and abdomen, it is actually a fungus that is usually found on people in the summer because we sweat more. The fungus prevents the skin from ‘getting tan’ and after a day at the beach a whole bunch of white spots appears. This condition can be treated with anti-fungal medication and acid washes. See Glytone body wash at our store.

Vitiligo

An autoimmune disorder where your own immune system attacks the cells that produce pigment in your skin. Your skin then loses color and becomes white. This skin has no sun protection. We recommend that you use sunscreen SPF 30 or higher and avoid direct sunlight.
