Dermatology

Dermatology is the area of medicine that deals with problems related to the skin. Some examples of skin conditions that are diagnosed and treated within our dermatology department include;

 

Atopic Eczema

A very common skin condition, due to skin inflammation that causes red, dry, itchy skin that can sometimes become weeping, blistered and crusted. Most eczema treatments are topical (applied to the skin), although for more severe eczema some people need to take ‘oral’ medication (by mouth) as well.

Psoriasis

A common inflammatory skin disease. It occurs equally in men and women, can appear at any age, and tends to come and go unpredictably. It is not infectious, therefore you cannot catch psoriasis from someone else. It does not scar the skin although sometimes it can cause a temporary increase or reduction in skin pigmentation.

Acne

A very common skin condition characterised by blackheads/whiteheads and pus-filled spots. It usually starts in puberty and varies in severity, but it can persist for longer into adulthood in some people. 

Rosacea

A common rash, usually occurring on the face, which predominantly affects middle-aged and fair-skinned people. Rosacea tends to affect the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose, and is characterised by flushing and redness, dilated blood vessels and small red bumps.

Mole or skin lesion removal

This can be both dermatological and cosmetic depending on the severity. Following examination, any lesions/moles that require further investigation will be sent away for testing. Prices for this service start from £295*.

Skin cancer and much more

 

Dermatological surgery

  • Skin cancer
  • Melanoma
  • Basal cell carcinoma - Usually appears as a small, shiny pink or pearly-white lump with a translucent or waxy appearance. It can also look like a red, scaly patch. There's sometimes some brown or black pigment within the patch. The lump slowly gets bigger and may become crusty, bleed or develop into a painless ulcer.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma - Appears as a firm pink lump with a rough or crusted surface. There can be a lot of surface scale and sometimes even a spiky horn sticking up from the surface. The lump is often tender to touch, bleeds easily and may develop into an ulcer.

 

Please call us for further information about any of the above services. Initial consultation fee is £200. 
 

* If a sample needs to be sent off for Histology testing a further £200 will be added.
