Dermatology, what is it and what does it do?

Dermatology is the branch of medicine that deals with skin problems. In a dermatological consultation, it is necessary to apply multiple tests to the patient to know what the problem is and how to solve it. Usually this is done through a dermatoscope and by taking small tests of different parts of the patient’s body. This is something quick and accurate that can give a small idea of what is going on in the patient and how it can be fixed quickly.

Depending on what this small test yields, a specific treatment may be recommended or more in-depth tests may be needed which we will explain later, but among them are histopathology and blood tests.

In a dermatologist’s office you will find multiple types of equipment, including laser equipment for different uses, such as to treat small dilated blood vessels or acne scars.

 

When to see a dermatologist?

It is important to know what a dermatologist is but also to know WHEN to see one. Usually if you have any of these symptoms or suspect something, you should see a dermatologist:

 

  • You have noticed that an area of your skin whether small or large has a small inflammation, scaling, redness, and can be either temporary or permanent.
  • Your hair has started to fall out for no apparent reason and your nails have become much, much weaker. Whether it’s one or both of these symptoms, it should be addressed as it could be indicative of a much larger health problem.

 

  • If you are just entering your teenage years and there are already signs of acne or other changes in the area of your face. Although it is normal, it is important to control it in time so that it does not create an infectious disease all over your face and become an uncontrollable painful process that will leave scars all over your face.
  •  If it has already been a year and you have not seen a dermatologist, remember that consultations are every so often. Remember that consultations are every so often to make sure everything is okay.

 

It is important that any changes you have noticed in the last few days be directed to your dermatologist, whether it is itchy or weak nails, a pimple or a scar. He or she will know how to take care of it in the best way so that it does not become a major problem. Remember that our skin speaks for what is happening inside our body, so it may be indicating something that you are not noticing, such as an iron deficiency or too much daily stress.

Biopsy

This is the most used in dermatology and is based on removing a small percentage of skin where the patient's problem is, and analyze it in depth from a visualization tool to see what is happening and what the problem is.

Allergy test

In case you have an external allergy, the dermatologist will be in charge of doing epicutaneous tests and the type of test you need depending on your type of allergy and how it has developed.

Taking samples

This is something we have all experienced at one time or another, and this is when the dermatologist will take a blood sample or personal sample such as a hair, and analyze it under a microscope. It is quick, easy and we have seen it multiple times in movies.

Dermatoscopy

It is a painless test that examines pigmented or nonpigmented lesions in the dermis of the person. Especially when they are spots similar to moles.

Pathologies treated by dermatology

Although we have already mentioned it before, we say it again: dermatology is one of the branches of medicine that deals with different changes in the skin health of people. No matter the type, most of the things that appear on our skin should be treated by a dermatologist. Which in fact, can be divided into different areas just as important as the main one. If you want to know what exactly a dermatologist can take care of, here we leave you a detailed list of the main care they have to take, except for very rare diseases and individual cases:

As for the solutions that can be given to this type of pathologies, there are a large number of them. The techniques used by dermatologists can range from cutaneous infiltrations to photodynamic, surgery, electrocoagulation, radio frequencies, medications, among many other options that will depend on the patient and his condition.

Little known causes for which to go to the dermatologist

Although we have already mentioned why you should go to the dermatologist, there are uncommon causes that still affect a percentage of the population but they still do not know that dermatologists should treat them. This ranges from hair changes to nails, and even hair removal.

We made a short list of the most important ones, remember that if you need a dermatologist you can trust to take care of your problems we are totally available for you! With the best attention and the best equipment to attend you with the quality and precision you need.

Dermatology subspecialties

As in every branch of medicine, dermatology has its phases and different areas of specialization, among them we can find: venereology, pediatric dermatology and aesthetic dermatology. Venereology dermatology is the branch of dermatology that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, while pediatric dermatology deals with skin diseases in children and aesthetic dermatology is in charge of applying merely superficial treatments for the aesthetic improvement of the patient.

The importance of the skin

Our skin is the largest organ we have, in fact it is not only the largest organ at the human level, it is also the largest organ for any living being, from the lion to the fish. In particular, we humans have skin with the function of protecting our insides. Helping us to better store our organs, to avoid internal infections, to fight against different types of bacteria or other day-to-day peculiarities such as the weather.

Why is it important to visit dermatologists?

These specialists give their life and time to become people who have the complete capacity to be able to make examinations, evaluations and give solutions to people with different types of skin problems. In addition to that, they offer their services with quality and with the intention of improving the health of the person in any kind of context. 

Even if we despise their profession, dermatologists are there to teach us what is wrong and how we can improve things to have better skin health. Visits to this type of specialist should be more frequent and taken more seriously, as this is also part of our health and we should take care of ourselves as much as possible to avoid problems. 

Sometimes, people take a long time to go to professionals and the problems they present in the health of their skin can become more complicated. Dermatologists work hard in order to have controls of the skin, hair and nails, to know that everything is fine. In addition to the above, you should go to a professional dermatologist every time you notice something on your skin that may generate doubts or discomfort. It is important not to let time pass to start treatments on time. 

In our dermatology clinic we can teach you how to start taking care of your skin from scratch and the benefits of doing so. Even if you only have acne or if you come for psoriasis, we can guide you from the beginning to the end in everything you need. Don’t hesitate any longer and let health professionals take care of your needs. Remember that prevention is the key to avoiding greater evils, and that there is no better weapon than a prepared and informed person to face any disease. We are patiently waiting for your call!

Top Dermatology Treatments

Some people wonder which specialist should treat hair problems, and indeed that task is for a dermatologist! Believe it or not, our hair can give us the signs that something is not going right with our body, from kidney problems to heart problems. Hair can alert us to many systemic or congenital diseases, so it's important to notice every change you have. 

One of the first changes we should be concerned about is hair loss. If it starts to go missing, you run your hand through it and there are lots of strands left, it starts to lose thickness, it's not as shiny anymore and it just doesn't feel normal, it should be time to visit a dermatologist. 

In fact, these problems can also affect not only the hair strand but also the scalp, as we can begin to develop different types of hair diseases such as seborrheic dermatitis, which warns of many health changes.

Another part of our body that we do not know which specialist to consult when we find a problem. And again, the nails can also show internal problems before worsening or being fully detected. So if we notice them dull, with little resistance and broken, we need to think a little and go to the dermatologist immediately. Especially if they have a very abrupt color change. 

Nail changes are highly related to problems in different organs, especially in the kidneys. Although it can also be linked to liver problems and cancer.

Although this could already be considered a problem for the urologist or gynecologist, there are some problems with our genitals that we need to see a dermatologist. Although the gynecologist will always be a good option to ask first, if you have a wart or other type of bump, it is best to see a dermatologist first. 

There is a branch of dermatology that deals with the study of sexually transmitted diseases and genital warts, this is called venereology, and is who you should connect with in case of suffering or suspecting any of these. This through the output of: Pimples, pimples, warts, etc.

This is something very common but which is not given the necessary attention. When a cut, wound or scrape takes a long time to heal, it may be due to a much more dangerous disease or an internal infection, so it is important to see a dermatologist in time to prevent it from swelling or getting worse. 

If you have cut yourself, the most normal thing is that the wound creates a blood plug after an hour or a little more depending on the depth, but if it does not, you should start to worry and analyze the progress of the blow through a few days. If it has not healed, go to a consultation and explain the situation.

Canker sores are nothing more than small pockets that are in our mouth, they can be created for different reasons, but if they are constant and large in size can be worrying as well as very annoying.

 

If you have one, the best thing to do is to go to a dermatologist. Especially if it comes with other symptoms such as itching or discomfort and bad taste in the mouth, as they could get worse. These can develop through a very sudden rise in temperature or an oral infection.

The presence of acne from 12 to 20 years old is totally understandable, but there are still people who after this stage continue to suffer from acne in an uncontrolled manner and still do not attend a specialist.

 

The appearance of pimples after puberty is worrying because they could be part of the development of skin infections or perhaps hormonal disorders.
