What skin conditions do doctors on Sesame treat?
Doctors on Sesame can diagnose and treat thousands of dermatological issues and medical conditions. Among some of the most common things treated include:
Melanoma: This is a type of skin cancer in which the cells that are in charge of making your skin brown or tan grow out of control. This is a dangerous type of skin cancer because it can spread easily to other parts of the body if you wait too long to treat it. If you think you may have melanoma you should speak to a dermatologist about treatment options.
Psoriasis: This is a skin disease in which you get red, itchy, scale-like patches that affect mainly your knees, elbows, torso, and scalp. Though there is no cure for this disease there are treatments available to help with symptoms.
Dermatitis: This is a term used to describe skin irritation. It could be in the form of blisters, skin rashes, swelling, or dry skin. Examples of this include eczema and dandruff.
Eczema: Also called atopic dermatitis, eczema is a skin condition that affects children and adults. It causes your skin to be red and itchy, or thicken and crack.
Warts: Growths that occur on the skin. Common warts are small in size and have a grainy texture. You may see tiny black dots in the wart which are blood vessels that have clotted. Common warts are generally harmless but may cause you to feel self-conscious.
Rosacea: This is a skin condition that makes the skin on your face turn red and may sometimes cause small, pus-filled blisters as well. Some people also have naturally reddishness in their skin and may be mistaken for Rosacea. If you have red skin and would like to speak with a healthcare professional about a diagnosis, Sesame can help you find great options in your area at affordable rates.
Skin lesions: These can be unusual growths or skin that looks different than the surrounding skin. Common skin lesions include skin tags, moles, freckles, and birthmarks. Though most lesions aren’t dangerous, some may be red flags. If you are concerned about a skin lesion you may consider seeing a dermatologist.
Acne: There are several options available to help with acne treatment caused including medicine, cream, hormonal therapy, and in some severe cases isotretinoin.
Fine lines and wrinkles: As you age, your skin loses moisture and loses its ability to stretch and retract. Fine lines are pre-wrinkles. These are lines that occur when you use muscles in your face over and over. Wrinkles are deeper and may become permanent.
Age spots: Also called a liver spot, an age spot is a small, dark blotch on the skin. Though there is no harm in age spots they may cause a person to feel self-conscious.
Scars: Different surgical and non-surgical procedures can help reduce the severity of scars.
Discoloration or pigmentation: These conditions affect the color of your skin. Dark spots, vitiligo, and albinism are some pigmentation disorders.
