Healthy skin is important to our overall wellbeing, fitness and vitality.
Skin complaints have many causes including:
People often feel self-conscious about skin complaints, especially those that affect the face or hands. Some complaints are itchy, sore or uncomfortable and impact daily life, disturbing sleep and affecting what we can wear. Although some skin conditions resolve naturally others need treatment to help relieve symptoms.
A Consultant Dermatologist is a medically qualified doctor who has special expertise in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the skin, hair and nails. If you have one of these problems, seeing a dermatologist will allow you to get expert advice without delay.
At BMI Bishops Wood Hospital, our Consultant Dermatologists are able to offer diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of skin conditions. Whether you’re frustrated by an unsightly rash or worried about your moles or a new skin lump, a consultation with a Dermatologist will be a sensible course of action. Why not book your visit today?

Dermatologists also diagnose and treat problems with skin pigmentation, scalp disorders and hair loss.

Treatment for skin conditions may involve advice about daily skin care, prescribed topical medication (creams and ointments), tablets, cryotherapy (freezing treatment) or skin surgery. Sometimes no treatment may be needed (for example, for a harmless mole).
Types of skin surgery may include:
If your symptoms come back, or if you have any questions or concerns, it is easy to arrange a follow-up appointment to see your Dermatologist again for help.
