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. For the most part, people are unaware of the changing layers of their skin as it simply falls away in tiny cells. Clothing and bed sheets are full of dead skin cells that have fallen away from the body, yet most people never see them. However, there may be times when noticeable peeling of the skin occurs. Often, it is due to damage of the skin from a sunburn or simple rash. The peeling will cease within a matter of days, and the skin will have no leftover signs or symptoms. continue reading

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.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
