Types of skin diseases
Below is a small sampling of the diseases and conditions that are often treated at the practice of Dr. Cheryl Burgess:
- Eczema – patients with eczema may experience chronic itching and redness on various parts of the body, while others notice periodic flare-ups. There are several types of eczema that can be diagnosed and treated, so it is important to work with a quality dermatologist who can provide effective solutions for the severity and type of eczema patients exhibit.
- Rosacea – redness of the facial skin may be an underlying sign of a chronic skin condition called rosacea. Rosacea can make many patients feel self-conscious about their appearance and can cause them to be less social. When treated, many of our patients feel they have obtained a new lease on life!
- Acne – blemishes, zits, pustules. While acne was once considered just a condition for teenagers, it is also seen in patients of all ages. Treatment may include topical, laser therapies, and an appropriate skin care regimen.
