Vitiligo occurs when pigment-producing cells (melanocytes) die or stop producing melanin (which gives your skin, hair and eyes colour.) This leads to the irregular whitening of skin or loss of skin colour.

Common causes:

  • A disorder in which your immune system attacks and destroys the melanocytes in the skin
  • Heredity
  • A trigger event, such as sunburn, stress or exposure to industrial chemicals

Vitiligo is treatable.

Early vitiligo treatment is encouraged as re-pigmentation can be far more challenging in the later stages when the skin has lost most of the pigments.

Psoriasis is a treatable, chronic recurring inflammatory skin condition. It presents with thick scaly red areas affecting the scalp, ears, elbows, knees, lower back, buttock.

Some patients have changed over their nails and may have painful joints. The exact cause of psoriasis remains unknown, but it is postulated to be a combination of genetic and environmental changes. The condition can run in the family. Psoriasis is not a contagious skin disease, and cannot spread via physical contact.

Psoriasis very often is a psychosocially frustrating and upsetting condition. Current evidence-based medicine promises new topical and second line options in treatment including biologics in more advanced cases.

Types of skin infections include:

  • Bacterial infections
  • Viral infections
  • Fungal infections
  • Parasitic infections

If not treated or managed, skin infections can spread beyond the skin and into the bloodstream and cause life threatening complications. Our doctors will closely examine any bumps, rashes, or lesions to determine the type of skin infection before deciding on an appropriate treatment plan.

Seborrheic dermatitis is a skin condition that mainly affects the scalp.

Seborrheic dermatitis leads to the appearance of scaly patches and red skin. It also affects oily areas of the body, such as the face, sides of the nose, eyebrows, ears, eyelids and chest.

This condition often causes stress and embarrassment due to the appearance of the seborrheic dermatitis, consult your doctor for treatment options available.

Acne is one of the commonest skin problems that invariably affects one at some point in their life.

This is a combined result of genetic predisposition, a higher level of male hormones, and inflammation by bacteria Propionebacterium acne.

Acne manifests more aggressively during adolescence or early adulthood, though some people continue to have acne outbreaks during their middle age.

Acne commonly affects the skin distribution with sebaceous glands such as the face, chest, back, shoulder and scalp. It is a condition that if left untreated can lead to physical scarring.

To treat acne, we must first understand why and how it happens. We all have hair follicles, structures in the skin which house hair. There are many acne treatment options to treat and manage acne.

Eczema is an inflammatory, chronically recurring and intensely itchy skin condition.

It is often due to an interaction between genetic and environmental factors. Eczema is associated with systemic allergic diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis.

Eczema can be exacerbated by environmental changes such as heat, dusty places, sweating, dry weather, stress or even food.

Viral warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV).

It is often picked up accidentally over the hands, legs or face from an infected surface. People tend to pick them out from the poolside floor, shared toilet, infected shoes.

Genital viral warts are transmitted via sexual contact. Despite viral warts can go viral, spreading around the skin, it is a treatable condition.

Scars are harmless. However, it can be troublesome in some, causing pain, itch, or cosmetic unpleasantness. Scars occur due to previous skin injury or old inflammation.

Scars that are raised and bumpy on the skin can be hypertrophic scars.

Current treatment options range from silicon gels, steroid injections to laser resurfacing to lighten up the scars.

Hives are also known as urticaria. They are very itchy rashes and appears like mosquito bites. They can recur, and comes and goes. Hives is due to release of histamine onto the skin from some, very often unknown triggers.

In the more acute setting, hives may be associated with allergy, and blood tests or skin prick tests may be warranted.

It can run a chronic path with possible triggers of heat, cold, sweat, pressure, sunlight, exercise or even food.

Sometimes, it is associated with underlying medical conditions such as anaemia or thyroid problems.

Most skin diseases are not fatal. However, if skin diseases very often when left unattended can lead to significant psychosocial debilitation, emotional distress and low esteem.

Fortunately, over the years, medicinal advancement brings its wake new treatment options which, if not a complete cure, alleviate symptoms tremendously. Speak to our doctors today!
