Dermatology Q & A

What is dermatology?

Dermatology is the branch of medicine that deals with all aspects of your skin, hair, and nails. Dermatologists have extensive experience in common and complicated skin conditions, as well as the skin symptoms caused by systemic and infectious diseases. 

When might I need to see a dermatology expert?

There are hundreds of skin diseases, and many have overlapping symptoms. When you purchase skin care products or treatments, they may perfectly target the condition and improve your skin.

Or the products may irritate your skin and make your condition worse. For example, you may treat acne when what you really have is rosacea.

As a general guideline, consider consulting a dermatologist when your skin problem doesn’t respond to over-the-counter products, your condition gets worse, or your symptoms are severe. 

Any time you develop inflammation or a sore, it’s important to get a dermatology evaluation to prevent scarring and to stop an infection from spreading. You should also schedule a dermatology appointment if you have a mole that changes its appearance. 

What common dermatology conditions might I develop?

These are only a few examples of the skin conditions frequently treated at Physicians Medical Group of San Jose:

  • Acne
  • Warts
  • Rosacea
  • Psoriasis
  • Skin infections
  • Skin rashes and hives
  • Pigmentation disorders
  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis)
  • Skin cancer (melanoma and nonmelanoma)

In addition to skin disorders, dermatologists treat a full range of cosmetic problems. Whether you have loose skin, age spots, or wrinkles, dermatology provides the solution you need to restore your appearance.
