Dermatology Q&A

What is dermatology?

Dermatology is the branch of medicine focused on your skin and hair. The IgniteRx Medical & Fitness team has extensive experience diagnosing and treating a wide range of skin conditions and helping to improve skin health and prevent skin diseases and cancer.

What dermatology services are available?

IgniteRx Medical & Fitness provides treatments for a comprehensive range of skin conditions, including:

  • Acne
  • Rashes
  • Skin cancer
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Warts
  • Melasma
  • Sun damage

Your provider can prescribe topical medications, such as corticosteroids, to reduce inflammation and ease rashes and itchy, painful skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. If you have a wart, your provider can offer different treatments to remove it.

IgniteRx Medical & Fitness also offers skin care advice to help your skin stay healthy and clear. For example, if you’re dealing with acne, your provider can provide prescription-strength cleansers, medications, and special medical-grade skin care products to help clear your skin.

When should I have a mole checked for cancer?

Moles are common and typically benign. However, some abnormal moles are indicative of skin cancer. The “ABCDE” characteristics can help you identify abnormal moles:

  • Asymmetry — Moles should be symmetrical and round
  • Border — Moles should have well-defined and regular borders
  • Color — If a mole is blue, black, or irregularly colored, it might be cancerous
  • Diameter — Your moles shouldn’t be larger in diameter than a pencil eraser
  • Evolution — Your moles shouldn’t change color or shape

If you notice changes in your existing moles or new moles developing in your skin, you should visit IgniteRx Medical & Fitness for an evaluation and treatment.

How should I take care of my skin?

Professional skin care and at-home skin care can help to keep your skin healthy and looking great. You should wash and moisturize with products that are safe and formulated for your skin type.

You might not be sure which skin care products are right for your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin, acne, aging skin, or a skin condition like psoriasis. Your IgniteRx Medical & Fitness provider can give you customized advice.

Make sure you wear sunscreen every day, even if you aren’t planning on spending much time outside. Consume a nutrient-dense healthy diet with limited sugar, and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water to keep your skin looking great.

You deserve radiant and beautiful skin that’s as healthy as it looks. Call IgniteRx Medical & Fitness, or book an appointment online today.
