Common Skin Problems

What is Acne?

Acne typically appears on areas of your skin that have the most oil glands (sebaceous glands), namely, your face, neck, shoulders, back and chest. It occurs where hair follicles become plugged with a combination of excess oil and dead skin cells. This creates a bacteria-friendly environment, and if the clogged pores are infected, the area will become inflamed.

Acne is exacerbated by factors such as stress, hormones, some medications and diet. Our dermatologists will be able to help you to control your acne and minimize scarring through an individualized treatment plan. Treatment options depend on the nature and severity of your case, and could include anything from lifestyle changes to medication and laser treatments.

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis occurs due to skin cells multiplying up to 10 times faster than normal. When the underlying cells reach the skin’s surface and die, they start to build up. The accumulation of dead cells on the skin’s surface appears as raised, red patches covered with white or silvery scales.

While it can be found anywhere on the body, psoriasis normally occurs on the scalp, knees, soles of the feet, elbows, palms and torso. There is no cure for psoriasis, but it typically responds well to topical and systemic treatments, as well as light therapy. These can improve your symptoms and help you control it better.

What is Atopic Dermatitis/Eczema?

Atopic dermatitis appears as dry, itchy, red patches on the skin that can easily become infected. It is more common in children than adults, and sufferers often have a personal or family history of allergies. While mild episodes of atopic dermatitis can be treated by moisturizing and avoiding known allergens, you will need to see a doctor if the symptoms persist or get worse. If you have an oozing rash, or areas of thickened skin, for example, you need medical help. Your dermatologist will be able to analyse your condition and recommend a personalized treatment plan. Treatments could include anything from allergy tests and immunotherapy, to medication, topical creams and UV light.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea causes redness on your nose, chin, cheeks and forehead and is common in people over 30. Sometimes the redness is accompanied by small bumps or pimples on the skin’s surface. Rosacea can also cause burning, sore eyes. No definitive cause has been identified, but certain factors make it worse. Common triggers for a flare-up include exposure to sun and wind, exercise, spicy food and alcohol, stress, and hot baths and weather. While there is no cure, treatment can help your skin look and feel better and also stop it getting worse. Treatments include anything from medication to laser treatments.
