Answers and questions on dermatology
Online consultation is possible for any disease. But in the case of unsuccessful treatment of psoriasis, a personal consultation with the additional examination is still desirable.
Hello! Typically, hair loss begins after childbirth and is a normal reaction of the body to changes in a woman’s hormonal levels. Skin and hair are a mirror of the body state and are among the first to react to endocrine profile disorders, diseases of internal organs or a deficiency of vitamins and minerals. Without examination and identification of the cause of hair loss, any methods of treatment and stimulation of hair growth may have a temporary effect or even be ineffective. I sincerely wish you to find “your” trichologist who will help you identify the cause of hair loss and solve the problem!
Hello! The rashes described by you can be of a fungal or bacterial nature, or simply inflammatory and not infectious (like Gibert’s disease). Unfortunately, it is impossible to make a diagnosis in absentia, and the treatment will depend on the diagnosis. To do this, the dermatologist will need to examine the skin and do additional tests (scraping of smooth skin for parasitic fungi, culture, etc.)
Hello! Itching can be a symptom of various skin diseases (mainly of an allergic or infectious nature) or an independent disease, the so-called idiopathic itching, which requires a thorough examination and search for internal causes to identify the causes. An antihistamine can be taken to relieve itching (symptomatic treatment).
Hello! A lipoma is a benign non-life-threatening neoplasm. Unfortunately, a dermatologist does not treat lipomas and other subcutaneous neoplasms. You need a consultation by a surgeon. You may also need a soft tissue ultrasound to make a diagnosis.
Before consulting a dermatologist, you do not need to take any tests. But if you have the latest test results, you should show them to your doctor. Yes, we conduct online consultations, you are welcome to contact us!
Tinea versicolour is a fungal disease that is quite easily treated with local, sometimes pill, antifungal drugs. Tinea versicolor often leaves light spots that fade over time, but can be misleading. There are several methods of confirming the diagnosis, one of them is a microscopic examination of scrapings from the rash site. Yes, we conduct online consultations, you are welcome to contact us!
We recommend you to consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment tactics. You may have an allergic reaction given the swelling of your face. You should see a specialist as soon as possible. Delay can be dangerous!!
Аcne is a chronic disease of sebaceous glands. There are plenty of initiating agents ranging from endocrine profile disorders to unhealthy diet and inadequate skin care. Genetic predisposition (heritability) proves rather essential. Indeed, there may be no significant deviations in the tests in case of acne. The doctor will select the proper care, local or systemic treatment, give recommendations on nutrition and (if necessary) prescribe additional examinations, consultations by related specialists. Unfortunately, it is impossible to choose an effective treatment regimen without personal consultation and, moreover, it is unsafe.
