Expert treatment for skin problems, FAST
The skin can be affected by a wide range of conditions. Common causes of skin complaints include:
The skin is the most visible organ of the body and so problems with the skin can have a major impact on self-confidence or self-esteem because of the appearance of the problem, particularly if it is occurring on more exposed areas such as the hands or face. Skin conditions can also have an impact on well-being because of symptoms such as itching or pain.
Although some skin conditions will resolve naturally, others will require expert treatment to properly resolve.
A Consultant Dermatologist is a medically qualified doctor who has specialist qualifications and expertise in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the skin, hair and nails. If you are concerned about a problem in any of these areas, a Dermatologist will be able to provide you with expert advice without delay.
At The Harbour Hospital, our Consultant Dermatologists see, diagnose and treat a wide range of skin conditions. Whether you’re concerned with a mole or skin growth, or frustrated by an itchy rash, booking a consultation with a Dermatologist is a sensible course of action.
