Early Intervention for the Best Outcomes
Dr. Lynn Klein and Dr. Daniel Parish are board certified dermatologists whose level of expertise enables our team to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including skin cancer, eczema and lesions.
Anyone with a worrisome growth, lesion or spot is advised to make an appointment at our Montgomery County dermatology office as soon as possible. The sooner treatment intervention begins, the better the chances of a successful outcome.
Skin Cancer Surgery
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in this country. Early intervention and treatment are crucial to curing skin cancer and preventing its return. As a patient, you will also be educated about skin damage prevention to help prevent future problems.
If you notice an unusual mole, growth or spot, the skin cells will be biopsied and sent to a lab for examination. Once a skin cancer diagnosis has been confirmed, a treatment strategy will be chosen.
Over 30 million people suffer from eczema, a painful skin condition. Atopic dermatitis, the most common kind of eczema, is an itchy, red rash that can appear all over the body. Eczema is often diagnosed in babies or young children, and symptoms can taper off as the child grows. Others may suffer eczema well into adulthood. People with eczema get caught in an itch-scratch cycle. The skin itches intensely, but scratching the skin worsens the rash, causing more inflammation and itching.
Eczema treatment is intended to reduce inflammation, soothe itching and prevent future flare-ups. Many people find over-the-counter medications do not work. Our team can prescribe stronger medications such as corticosteroids, antihistamines, antibiotics and immunomodulators to relieve the painful symptoms of eczema. We can also recommend skin care and lifestyle habits, such as taking lukewarm baths and showers, moisturizing with certain products and using a humidifier, that can help.
Mole and Lesion Removal
Many moles are harmless and do not need treatment. If you are bothered by a mole — either because of the way it looks, rubs against clothing or makes shaving difficult — one of our board certified dermatologists can remove it during an office visit. Do not under any circumstances attempt to remove it at home, as this could have serious health and cosmetic consequences.
The best removal technique depends on the mole itself. Some moles can be shaved using a surgical blade, while others must be excised or removed with a laser. All treatment methods will cause a scab to form over the area for a week or so. Once the treatment site has healed, a scar will appear. Over time, the scar will fade and become more consistent with the surrounding skin.
