Skin Diseases Q & A

What causes skin diseases?

Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It protects you from harmful viruses and bacteria, and helps to regulate your body’s temperature.

Some skin conditions can cause irritation and inflammation, including:

  • Allergies
  • Environmental irritants
  • Genetics
  • Immune disorders

With conditions like acne, the oil glands of your skin become clogged, creating pimples on the surface of your skin. Some conditions, like impetigo, are the result of infections in the skin caused by viruses or bacteria.

What is rosacea?

Rosacea causes blood vessels in your face to become visible. You also experience skin redness and small pus-filled bumps during flare-ups. Anyone can develop rosacea, but it most commonly affects fair-skinned women.

There is no cure, but Dr. Jay offers treatments to manage your rosacea symptoms, including:

  • Topical medicines
  • Antibiotics
  • Oral medications
  • Laser therapy

Dr. Jay may also offer skin care recommendations to prevent future rosacea flare-ups.

What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that causes skin cells to develop rapidly on the surface of your skin. The extra cells appear as scaly, red patches that can become itchy and painful. Several factors can trigger psoriasis, including:

  • Infections
  • Injuries
  • Stress
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Certain medications

There is no cure for psoriasis, but Dr. Jay provides effective resources to manage it, including corticosteroids and lifestyle changes.

What is seborrheic dermatitis?

Seborrheic dermatitis is a skin condition that primarily affects your scalp, but it can also develop on your face, ears, chest, and other oily areas of your body. The condition causes skin redness, scaly patches, and dandruff.

Dr. Jay evaluates your skin to make sure your symptoms aren’t caused by another condition. He provides several treatment options for seborrheic dermatitis, including:

  • Prescription shampoos
  • Antifungal creams
  • Oral medications

In some cases, multiple treatments are necessary to eliminate scaly skin and dandruff flakes.

What treatments are available for spider veins?

Spider veins are clusters of blood vessels that grow close to your skin’s surface. They appear red, purple, or blue and resemble a spider web. When blood pools in a vein, putting pressure on the vein wall, spider veins develop. They commonly form on the legs and face.

Dr. Jay offers several treatment options for relieving the burning, cramping, and swelling that can accompany spider veins. To improve the appearance of your legs or face, he may also recommend laser treatments or vein surgical procedures to eliminate spider veins.

How are abnormal moles treated?

Abnormal moles are common but need to be carefully monitored. Abnormal moles frequently have irregular or poorly defined borders. They can range in color from tan to dark brown. While not all abnormal moles are cancerous, they are more likely to turn into melanoma than regular moles.

If you have abnormal moles, Dr. Jay evaluates them carefully. He may suggest a biopsy, or removal of all or part of the abnormal mole, for review under a microscope. If he suspects melanoma, you may need additional biopsies to confirm the diagnosis.

It’s important to routinely check your moles for any changes and report these changes, or new mole growths, to Dr. Jay immediately.
