Medical Skin Problems

Eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea and fungal infection are common skin problems. They can vary from being a minor nuisance to a severe problem that profoundly impacts quality of life. Some skin problems can be a sign of a more widespread disease.

Why see a Dermatologist to manage these problems?

Dermatologists are the only medical specialists with specific training to manage eczema, psoriasis, acne and the many other less common problems.  I can offer expert diagnosis and you will get a full range of treatment options explained in terms that you can understand.  I have 20 years experience as a consultant dermatologist


 

Acne

Acne affects most of us from teenage years and sometimes into adult life.  As a dermatologist, I understand the impact acne can have and can offer a full range of effective treatments.

 

Eczema (Dermatitis)

Eczema or dermatitis affects 1:5 people at some time in their lives. It may be an ongoing chronic problem. There are many different types and combinations of eczema. I will help by diagnosing and defining the factors and offer you a treatment plan to stay on top of this troublesome and common problem, including UVB light phototherapy, a great option for severe widespread eczema, avoiding systemic drugs.

Affecting up to 4% of the population, psoriasis can cause great distress and may be associated with other health problems. Every case is different.  I have 20 years of experience and will offer friendly expert assessment and provide a full range of treatment options and personalised plan including external topical agents, systemic medications including the exciting new targeted biologic agents as well as Narrowband UVB light therapy.
