General dermatology

Private dermatologist to treat common skin problems

Our specialists have experience in diagnosing and treating a wide range of skin conditions. They are here to help you to get the best possible result and most accurate diagnoses in every case.

Some of the more common skin problems include:

  • Eczema (atopic eczema, or atopic dermatitis), a long-term condition in which the skin becomes itchy, cracked, and dry, most commonly affecting the knees, elbows, hands and scalp
  • Psoriasis, which causes scaly silver patches to appear on the skin, which reddens and flakes. It mostly affects the joints (elbows and knees) and lower back, and causes pain and itching, with symptoms that tend to come and go and vary in severity;
  • Urticaria (hives, welts, weals, rash), which is triggered by a reaction to something external, such as food or medication
  • Warts and verrucae, small lumps that usually affect the hands and feet;
  • Impetigo, a highly contagious infection causing blisters and sores, more common in children
  • Cold sores (herpes simplex) are small sores that develop around the mouth. They begin as a tingling or itching sensation which turns into small blisters, which then crust and ooze, and may bleed. They usually heal within 7-10 days; itching (often caused by an irritant)
  • Ringworm, a fungal infection causing a silver or red and scaly rash shaped like a ring. It is infectious and often appears on the arms and legs
  • Vitiligo, a non-contagious, long-term condition causing pale white patches of varying sizes to appear on the skin. It is more visible on skin that is darker or tanned
  • Scabies, a contagious condition in which tiny mites (Sarcoptes scabiei), which are too small to be visible to the human eye, burrow under the skin, causing an intensely itchy rash of small red spots that is worse at night.

FAQ

Is my skin rash contagious?

If your rash is caused by an environmental irritant, it will not be contagious (unless you have poison oak, which can be spread to others if the plant’s oil is still on your skin or clothes). Many rashes are contagious, however. See a doctor to determine the cause of your rash.

I have a rash. Should I see a doctor?

Yes. Most rashes are mild but some can lead to more severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, fever, disorientation, and nausea or vomiting. The doctor can help you get to the bottom of what’s causing your rash.
