Long Island Dermatology

Dermatology is a field of medicine that deals with skin and diseases of the skin. The diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases of the skin, oral cavities, hair, nails, and genitals is all part of the specialty of dermatology. A dermatologist can treat skin diseases and some cosmetic issues of the skin, hair, nails, and scalp. A dermatologist may also treat a wide variety of conditions ranging from cosmetic to life-threatening. Skin cancer is one of the most common types of diseases that could be life-threatening if left untreated. Skin diseases that cause rashes are psoriasis, impetigo, herpes zoster, and athlete's foot. Cosmetic problems that have the need for dermatology treatment include sun damage, scars from injury or surgery, and congenital deformities. A skilled dermatologist can play an invaluable part in helping anyone accomplish and maintain the best dermatological health for physical and emotional well-being.
