Common Skin Conditions

Learn about the many common skin conditions we treat.

We classify many different skin conditions as common. But the fact that they’re common doesn’t lessen the impact they can have on your quality of life.

Some skin conditions can become more serious. An example is skin cancer. And skin conditions can cause a variety of other problems, such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Social problems

That’s why we take common skin conditions seriously. Our dermatologists will work closely with you to determine the right care for your particular skin problem.

What are the symptoms of common skin conditions, and what are my treatment options?

Many common skin conditions have similar symptoms, such as:

  • Bumps
  • Itchiness
  • Lesions
  • Reddened skin

You should never try to diagnose or treat your dermatology condition by yourself. It could be a simple problem, or it could be a sign of a more uncommon skin problem.

Our dermatologists will provide the most accurate diagnosis possible. Once we’ve identified the specific condition, we’ll create a treatment plan that’s best for you.
