Diagnosis and treatment for skin, hair and nail conditions
Board-certified and specially-trained to treat your condition
The skin is the largest organ in the body, the first line of defense against bacteria and injury, and often reflects overall health. Over-the-counter treatments and at-home remedies are usually the first things people try. They certainly serve their purpose and work for some people. However, if these options don’t work or you notice any changes in color or texture of your skin, a trip to a board-certified dermatologist can help diagnose and treat a variety of skin, hair and nail conditions. 

When you come to Prevea Dermatology, we understand that every person is unique and so are their symptoms. We create a care plan that’s best for you and, if necessary, we collaborate with other Prevea physicians and providers to ensure we treat your condition, not just the symptoms.

Diagnosis and treatment of:

Skin cancer 
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, but if caught early, a board-certified dermatologist can treat it and ideally eliminate it all together. Prevention is key. Know the risk factors. And, have a dermatologist examine any moles, birthmarks or other marks on the skin that are unusual in color, size, shape or texture. Learn more 

Acne is a skin condition common with teens, but it can affect adults as well. Specific types of acne include black heads, white heads, pimples, nodules or cysts. Acne occurs when pores of your skin become blocked with oil, bacteria and dead skin cells. Acne can affect the skin on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Acne is not a serious health threat, but it can cause scars. Acne treatments include over-the-counter options and prescriptions from a dermatologist. Learn more
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that causes red, scaly skin that may be painful, swollen or hot. It usually impacts the skin on elbows, knees, the scalp, lower back, face, palms and soles of the feet. Treatment depends on how much skin is affected, how bad the disease is and the location on the body. Treatments range from creams and ointments to ultraviolet light therapy and medications. 
Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a very common chronic skin disorder. The main symptom is a very itchy rash. It often affects children. Treatment can vary, but the most helpful option is self-care. In many cases eczema gets better with time; it may go away for a while or disappear altogether.  
Allergic rashes 
An allergic rash, also called contact dermatitis, causes redness, itching and sometimes small bumps. Some rashes can also lead to blisters or patches of raw skin. The rash appears in the area where an irritant such as a chemical, or something you are allergic to, like poison ivy, has touched the skin. Seek medical treatment if the rash is so uncomfortable that it interferes with sleep or daily activities.  
Scabies is a skin disorder caused by mites. Common symptoms are intense itching and a pimple-like skin rash that affects various areas of the body. Scabies is contagious and can spread quickly. A dermatologist will likely prescribe a topical cream as treatment.
Hair loss 
Effective treatment for hair loss begins with finding the cause. A board-certified dermatologist has the expertise to diagnose and treat hair loss. 
Molluscum is a benign, mild viral skin infection characterized by growths that may appear on the face, neck, arms, legs, abdomen and genital area, alone or in groups. The growths, known as Mollusca, are small, raised and usually white, pink or flesh-colored with a dimple or pit in the center. They’re usually smooth and firm, and may become itchy, sore, red and/or swollen. In most people, the growths range from the size of a pinhead to as large as a pencil eraser. We recommend early treatment to minimize scarring and spreading of the virus. 
Warts are growths on the skin caused by an infection with human papilloma virus, or  HPV. Types of warts include common warts, which often appear on your fingers, plantar warts, which show up on the soles of your feet, genital warts, which are a sexually transmitted disease and flat warts, which appear in places you shave frequently. In children, warts often go away on their own. In adults, they don’t typically go away on their own. If they hurt, bother you or if they multiply, they can be removed. Chemical skin treatments and freezing usually work to remove them.
