Skin Rashes

Hives

Rashes are a common skin condition, and they can be caused by several factors such as allergens, medications, immune system disorders, heat, and underlying infections. In order to treat rashes, a proper diagnosis is required.

A skin rash is medically referred to as contact dermatitis. In general, there are two kinds of contact dermatitis. The first is allergic contact dermatitis, which occurs when the skin becomes sensitive to certain substances, also known as allergens. The second is irritant contact dermatitis, which occurs when the skin is exposed to irritants, such as solvents, soaps, or detergents, over a period of time. Strong irritants like acids or alkalis can cause instant irritant contact dermatitis and lead to immediate skin damage.

Diagnosing a rash is dependent on multiple factors. Several skin conditions cause rashes, therefore, a trained and certified dermatologist will have to observe and carry out tests to determine the exact cause and prescribe further treatment.  

At Dermaclinique, Dr. Nayyar, who is an experienced and qualified dermatologist, will examine your rashes to diagnose the exact type and provide you with the appropriate treatment options.

Hives, also known as urticaria, refers to a skin condition that is characterized by the appearance of itchy rashes that are manifested in the form of localized swellings. They tend to last a few hours before they disappear.

However, when they show up on the lips or eyes, they tend to cause excessive swelling. If this swelling occurs beneath the skin, it is referred to as angioedema. An angioedema can be risky when it affects the throat or lungs. Fortunately, immediate treatment will alleviate those symptoms in less than 24 hours.

Do you suspect you may have hives? If so, contact Dr. Nayyar at Dermaclinique for medical advice and treatment. Dr. Nayyar is a certified and highly qualified dermatologist with years of experience dedicated to diagnosing and treating various skin conditions.

Rosacea

Often confused with acne, rosacea is a skin condition that makes blood vessels visible and causes redness of the skin on one’s face. It can also cause the formation of tiny bumps that are red and filled with pus. The symptoms of rosacea tend to flare up and clear out on their own after time.

Rosacea can affect anyone but is most common among middle-aged women with fair skin. There’s no cure for rosacea. However, treatments exist and are very effective when it comes to alleviating the symptoms.

Common symptoms include:

  • Swollen red bumps that contain pus and look very similar to pimples. This symptom is why rosacea is confused with acne.
  • Facial redness, which tends to be persistent in the center of the face. The redness is the result of blood vessels swelling up.
  • Problems with the eyes. Rosacea has been linked to eye irritation, dryness, and redness, etc. These symptoms can precede the rest of the symptoms.
  • Enlarged nose. Rosacea can cause the skin on the nose to become hard, which results in a bulbous appearance. This symptom is seen more in men than in women.

If you feel that you may be suffering from rosacea, make sure to get in touch with Dermaclinique. Book an appointment with Dr. Nayyar, she will observe, diagnose and provide you with the right kind of treatment.

Skin Infections

Warts

Skin infection or cellulitis is a non-contagious bacterial infection that can spread to various areas of the body. The condition occurs when bacteria enters the skin via a cut or break in the skin. Two types of bacteria cause skin infections, namely, Staphylococcus (Staph) or Streptococcus (Strep).

Failing to treat the condition can lead to life-threatening complications.

Common symptoms include swelling, tenderness, warmth, redness, and even fever.

If you feel that you may have cellulitis/skin infection, get in touch with Dermaclinique and book an appointment with Dr. Nayyar for diagnosis and treatment.

Warts are small growths on the skin that appear rough in texture. They tend to resemble a solid blister or have a cauliflower-like appearance. They’re primarily caused by viruses that are part of the broader HPV or human papillomavirus family.

The classification of warts has to do with the area where they appear. Warts on the hand are called palmar warts, while warts on the feet are called plantar warts.

About 1 in 3 children and teenagers are said to have warts, while in adults, only 3 to 5% suffer from it. This is mainly because the immune system in adults is much stronger.

If you’ve got warts, come to Dermaclinique to treat the condition. Dr. Nayyar is an experienced dermatologist who will guide you on the various treatment options available.

Skin Tags & Moles

Fungal Infections

Human skin is susceptible to certain non-cancerous skin lesions that can be categorized as skin tags or moles.

Moles are caused when cells called melanocytes grow as a cluster rather than spreading out uniformly.

Skin tags are often found on the bodies of overweight or diabetic individuals. They are benign growths that are thought to occur where skin rubs against itself or clothing.

Moles and skin tags can be removed via simple surgical procedures. To know more about these conditions and their treatments, call Dermaclinique and book an appointment with Dr. Nayyar right away.

A fungal infection is typically caused by molds or yeasts, which fall under the broader category of fungi. Fungi are generally parasitic by nature, which means they live off the resources/nutrition provided by the host body, often starving the host (not in humans) or causing other complications.

Fungal infections in humans occur for a wide range of reasons and determining the cause and type of a fungal infection and its subsequent treatment requires careful diagnosis by a certified and experienced dermatologist like Dr. Nayyar.

If you suspect that you might have a fungal infection, book an appointment with Dr. Nayyar by calling Dermaclinique.
