What is a dermatologist? 

A dermatologist is a medical doctor who specialises in diagnosing and treating conditions related to the skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes. They have expertise in both medical and surgical aspects of dermatology.

What can a dermatologist in Hitchin help with?

Dermatologists can help with a wide range of skin-related issues, including:

  1. Skin conditions: They diagnose and treat various skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, fungal infections, warts, and skin allergies.

  2. Skin cancer: Dermatologists play a crucial role in the early detection and treatment of skin cancer. They perform skin examinations and biopsies, and provide treatment options such as surgical removal, topical treatments, radiation therapy, and coordination with oncologists for advanced cases.

  3. Cosmetic dermatology: Dermatologists can offer cosmetic treatments and procedures to improve the appearance of the skin, including botox injections, dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser treatments, microdermabrasion, and hair removal.

  4. Hair and nail disorders: They diagnose and treat conditions affecting the scalp, hair, and nails, such as hair loss (alopecia), dandruff, nail infections, and ingrown nails.

  5. Allergies and sensitivities: Dermatologists can help identify and manage skin allergies, contact dermatitis (caused by allergens or irritants), and sensitivities to substances like certain fabrics, cosmetics, or metals.

  6. Dermatologic surgery: Dermatologists are trained in surgical procedures for the treatment of skin conditions, including excisions of skin tumors, cysts, and lipomas, as well as Mohs surgery for skin cancer removal with precise tissue preservation.

  7. Chronic skin diseases: They provide comprehensive management and ongoing care for chronic skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis, which may require long-term treatment plans.

It’s important to note that while dermatologists specialise in skin-related issues, they may also collaborate with other medical professionals.
