Skin & Hair Diseases Q & A

 

What are some common skin and hair diseases?

There are endless conditions of the hair and skin. Some aren’t serious, and the consequences are mostly cosmetic. Others can threaten your life if you don’t seek the proper treatment in time.

At Advanced Dermatology, Dr. Agha works tirelessly to identify and accurately diagnose your skin or hair disease before coming up with the appropriate treatment strategy. 

Common skin and hair diseases that Dr. Agha frequently treats include:

  • Acne
  • Alopecia (hair loss)
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Herpes
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Lipoma
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea
  • Scabies
  • Seborrheic keratosis
  • Skin cancer
  • Warts

As a seasoned dermatologist, there are few skin and hair diseases that Dr. Agha hasn’t seen before. It’s important to figure out what you have early on in its development and get started on the right treatment strategy.

What are the common indications of skin and hair diseases?

In order to know when to contact Advanced Dermatology for a diagnosis, you must look for signs and symptoms of skin and hair diseases on your own body. In many cases, they’re easy to notice. You should make an appointment with Dr. Agha if you notice any of the following persisting signs or symptoms of a skin or hair disease.

  • Lesions
  • Inflammation
  • Itching
  • Dryness and cracking
  • Hair loss
  • Blisters
  • Growing or changing moles
  • Pus leakage
  • Bleeding
  • Brittle nails

If you’re unsure about whether or not a certain blemish or irritated area is a cause for concern, simply wait a few days to see if it goes away. You can call Dr. Agha and book an appointment for peace of mind; you won’t regret having an answer either way.

What might treatment for skin and hair diseases include?

At Advanced Dermatology, Dr. Agha reviews your symptoms, physically examines you, and may order blood work or other tests before reaching a diagnosis. Once he knows what skin or hair disease you have, he creates a treatment plan that may include multiple modes of treatment. Your treatment plan might include:

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Topical products and creams
  • Oral medications
  • Injections
  • Minimally invasive procedures
  • Minor surgery

In most cases, he starts your plan using the least invasive or complicated options. If your skin or hair condition doesn’t subside with steps like staying out of the sun or using specialized ointments or other products, it may require an in-office procedure to help treat it or manage the symptoms.
