Hello, my name is Molly. When I was a young teen, I thought it was unendingly cool to tattoo myself with band quotes and interesting symbols. I did not care about placement or ink spread. In fact, I did not worry about the impact of those tattoos at all. Unfortunately, upon graduating college, I was covered in tattoos that were making it difficult to find a job in my field. Luckily, I was able to undergo tattoo removal procedures to remove the ink from my body. I will use my website to help other people understand the process of having their tattoos professionally removed. Please visit again soon.
Dermatology is often a misunderstood field of medicine. Upon hearing the word 'dermatologist', many think of the doctor that they saw as a teen dealing with acne. While dermatologists do help people to get and keep clear skin, there is so much more they are trained to do. Dermatologists can treat most disorders which could affect the hair, nails, or skin of an individual. Common disorders of each of these dermatologic organs include but are not limited to:
Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss or baldness. There are many different types of alopecia, though it can affect anyone. While there is no immediate cure for alopecia, there are many different treatments which dermatologists can offer to either slow the process or hide the symptoms.
Hirsutism, which is basically the opposite of alopecia, is the growth of unwanted hair in unwanted places. Hirsutism affects women and can cause them to grow hair on their face, chest, stomach, and/or back. This is often caused by an excessive amount of male hormones in the body.
Many people take their finger and toenails for granted until something happens to them. One common nail disorder is when the nail begins to become discolored or to smell foul, which happens in cases of nail fungus. Dermatologists have different solutions which can be topically applied to nails to clear up the problem.
Sometimes nails can grow incorrectly, such as into the skin instead of towards the end of the fingers or in an odd shape. This can cause blisters, sores, bleeding, and pain which can be fixed by a dermatologist. Some nails heal over time while others need to be removed.
Vitiligo is a disorder of the skin where melanin, or the color of the skin, is lost over time. The loss of melatonin makes the skin turn light-colored and is often quite noticeable. Those who suffer from this disorder can have the change in pigmentation slowed with medication, though there is ultimately no cure.
Skin cancer has always been a large problem around the world, which is often caused by overexposure to the sun. The first signs of skin cancer are dark spots on the skin, oddly shaped moles, thick skin, or painful areas of the skin. Dermatologists remove millions of skin cancer spots every year in the United States.
In conclusion, dermatologists can help with many disorders, no matter what the age of the patient. If you are experiencing a disorder and wondering if a dermatologist can help you, the above-mentioned disorders may help you to understand the vastness of a dermatologist's skills.
