Skin Problems

Pikeville Dermatology treats an array of skin imperfections and problem. Listed below are some of the more common reasons for client visits.
Port-Wine Birthmarks are irregularly shaped marks that usually occur on the face and neck. They range in color and darkness but are most commonly a red or pink shade. The congenital birthmark is a result of dilated capillaries. Laser treatments are most successful in lightening the birthmark.
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and flushing to the face, cheeks, forehead, and sometimes neck. Rosacea is a chronic, but benign, skin condition that mostly affects women. Laser treatments are used to penetrate the skin and lessen the redness caused by the skin condition.
Warts are found on fingers, hands, knees, and feet and they resemble a blister or callus. Warts are more common in kids than adults, and they can often be painful. Warts are removed by burning, freezing, or lasers.
Eczema causes red, blistering, scaly, brownish, thickened and itchy skin. Eczema often runs in families with heightened allergies, sensitive skin, or a history of atopic dermatitis. Eczema patches most often appear in teens and young adults and can last for years without proper treatment.
