Treatment of acne, skin rashes and benign lumps and bumps and more
As the largest organ in the human body, the health of our skin plays an important role in our overall wellbeing. Unfortunately, the skin can be affected by a large number of factors, including:
Acne, skin rashes and benign lumps and bumps are the common skin complaints, but the incidence of skin cancers are also on the rise. When these problems affect the skin in areas that are more visible, such as the face, it also affects your self-confidence.
Skin conditions can take a heavy toll on your physical, mental and emotional health.
Assessment and treatment from an experienced doctor will be needed for many skin conditions in order to properly resolve your symptoms. Dermatology is the study and treatment of the skin, hair and nails. A doctor specialising in this area is known as a dermatologist.
If you have any type of concern about a skin condition and would appreciate expert advice, a dermatologist will always be the best person to see. They will be able to assess and diagnose the cause of your symptoms, then tailor a treatment plan for you.
At The Meriden Hospital, our Consultant Dermatologists see, manage, monitor and treat all skin conditions. Whether you have an unsightly mole you don’t like or that has changed colour or shape, or you’re being irritated by an itchy rash that just isn’t going away, why not book an appointment with one of our Consultants for help?
They also diagnose, investigate and treat:
Regardless of your symptoms, help is available. Should any type of treatment be required, it can be easily arranged for you here at The Meriden Hospital.
They will take your clinical history and carry out a physical examination of the affected area(s) of skin.
Additional tests are sometimes required to help with the diagnosis. Common investigations for skin conditions include:
Your Consultant will be able to arrange any tests required to get a diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is confirmed, they will be able to talk to you about suitable treatment options. Treatments for skin conditions include watchful waiting, medication, application of a topical cream or ointment or surgery.
There are a number of medicines, creams and ointments available for skin conditions and your Consultant Dermatologist will be able to talk with you about the best ones for your specific complaint.
Skin surgery includes:
Some skin conditions may flare up and then calm down again. For this reason, your Consultant will see you for reviews at certain intervals to monitor your symptoms and to check they have fully resolved or are still being suitably managed. If your symptoms reoccur, or if you have any questions or concerns, it is very easy to book to see your consultant for advice.
Some have been referred by their GP or private medical insurance company, while others have been recommended by friends or family members who have previously been helped by us. While a medical referral can be helpful, you can self-refer to avoid delay.
We treat people with private medical insurance and those who chose to use our self-pay option.
At The Meriden Hospital you will benefit from:
Effective treatments are available for a range of skin problems, and our experienced Consultant Dermatologists would be delighted to help you. They will investigate the cause(s) of your problem and talk about treatment options with you.
