Medical Dermatologists in AtlantaAs fall turns to winter, a person’s skin has different needs than it did in the warmer months. The air in winter dries out and becomes cold causing moisture to pull from the skin. Add to that the drying effects of central heating and fireplaces that are in high use during the winter season. With so little moisture in the air, the top layer of skin cells flattens and isn’t as capable of adding the protection people need. Skin gets tight, dry, itchy and flaky. continue reading

Summers in Georgia are HOT! Even though school is back in session across the state, pools are open for at least another month or longer to provide relief from the oppressive heat. Swimming pools provide a much needed cool down for those who are out in the heat, as well as providing a great play area for children to enjoy time out of doors. While pools are fun and refreshing, it is important to understand the impact that they can have on your skin so that you can protect yourself.

Swimming pools are treated with a water treatment known as chlorine to kill bacteria present in the water. It is necessary for public swimming areas to be treated with chlorine to protect swimmers from bacteria and other variables that are damaging and can make people sick. However, as a chemical that actually kills bacteria, it is important to know that it can damage your skin if your skin is over exposed to it. continue reading

Atlanta GA Dermatologist for Peeling SkinDesquamation, or skin peeling, is the shedding of the outermost layer of skin. All skin peels, typically replacing itself every 14 days.

Women all over the world have had to deal with stretch marks for thousands of years. While anyone can get stretch marks due to excessive weight gain, the risk for stretch marks is much higher in pregnant women. As a pregnant woman’s body develops and grows quickly in a short span of just nine months, the skin of the abdomen, breasts, and hips is considered to be “high risk” because it is stretched as the baby (or babies) grow exponentially. Not all women get stretch marks. It is generally believed that women have a genetic predisposition that determines whether or not they get stretch marks, unless they gain an abnormal amount of weight during pregnancy. While stretch marks are not considered to be a medical complication, they can cause emotional stress to have a negative impact on a woman’s life. continue reading

Medical Dermatology Specialists, Inc.Few people associate sweating with the winter months, which is why it is often such a surprise when people find that they are troubled with excessive sweating during cold temperatures.

The body is still working hard throughout the year, during cold and hot temperatures, to keep itself at a comfortable and normal level. However, there are circumstances in which the body produces an extreme amount of stress known as the condition hyperhidrosis. Chronic excessive sweating is not only embarrassment but it can also put limitations on your quality of life.

Medical Dermatology Specialists, Inc.Scabies is an intensely itchy skin condition caused by a tiny burrowing mite called Sarcoptes scabiei. Scabies is incredibly contagious, and it can easily spread through physical contact in family members, a child care facility, school, or nursing home. The tiny mite that burrows into the skin causes intense itching in the area of its borrows, and contact with these areas of skin can allow the mite to “jump” onto another person’s skin and begin burrowing there. Scabies is typically very readily treated through topical medication that kills the mites and their eggs. Because of the contagious nature of scabies, entire families or contact groups are typically treated in order to prevent another breakout from occurring. continue reading
