What is Medical Dermatology?

As you can likely guess from the name, medical dermatology focuses on skin health. This dermatology is concerned with diagnosing and treating skin conditions that affect your overall health, like skin cancer and eczema. 

Medical dermatologists are trained to identify and treat these conditions and may do so through prescribed medications, suggesting lifestyle changes, or performing medical procedures such as biopsies.

Common skin conditions treated with medical dermatology can include:

  • Acne affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to inflammation and the formation of pimples.
  • Eczema is a chronic skin condition that can cause dry, itchy, inflamed skin. It is typically caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
  • Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes red, scaly patches on the skin. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, this skin condition affects around 2-3% of the global population.
  • Rosacea causes redness, visible blood vessels and small, red bumps on the face and can be aggravated by triggers such as sun exposure, stress, and certain foods.
  • Medical dermatologists play a crucial role in diagnosing and treating skin cancer, including Mohs surgery – the least invasive, most successful form of skin cancer removal.
