Any type of damage to the skin has the potential to affect physical, mental and emotional health, sometimes quite significantly. Unfortunately, skin is quite easily damaged by:
Skin problems in more visible areas, such as the face or hands, can often make us feel self-conscious, and it can be easy to try to mask these areas of skin with make-up or clothing.
Some skin conditions will resolve themselves naturally over time, but many others will need some form of treatment to relieve symptoms.
A Consultant Dermatologist is a medically qualified doctor who specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the skin, hair and nails. Seeing a Consultant Dermatologist for any damage to the skin, hair or nails is the quickest way of getting expert advice for your specific condition and symptoms.
