Bahr Dermatology

Medical dermatology involves a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical history, physical examination of the skin, and often diagnostic testing, such as skin biopsies, blood work, or imaging studies, to accurately diagnose the skin condition. After a diagnosis is made, medical dermatologists develop a personalized treatment plan that may include topical or oral medications, phototherapy, or other procedures such as cryotherapy or surgical excision.

Some of the most common skin conditions that medical dermatologists diagnose and treat include:

  1. Skin cancer: This includes melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma.
  2. Acne: A common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells.
  3. Eczema: A chronic skin condition characterized by dry, itchy, and inflamed skin.
  4. Psoriasis: A chronic autoimmune condition that causes the rapid buildup of skin cells, resulting in thick, red, and scaly patches on the skin.
  5. Rosacea: A chronic skin condition characterized by redness, flushing, and small pimples on the face.

Overall, medical dermatology plays a crucial role in maintaining the health and well-being of the skin. Medical dermatologists work closely with patients to diagnose and manage their skin conditions, promoting healthy skin and improving overall quality of life.
