What is clinical dermatology?

Clinical dermatology is a field of dermatology that focuses on the care of the skin when problems arise. It is different from cosmetic dermatology, which is often more geared towards aesthetic issues that impact the skin. Clinical dermatologists will help patients with a wide range of concerns including:

  • Active acne and acne scarring
  • Minor and major skin irritations
  • Skin cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment
  • Skin allergy testing
  • Severe skin allergic reactions
  • Skin infections
  • Nail fungus
  • Hair thinning and loss
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Ringworm/athlete’s foot/yeast infections
  • Warts, rashes, and hives
  • Spider and varicose veins
  • Rosacea
  • Vitiligo
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema

Why might I need the assistance of a clinical dermatologist?

Patients will often work with clinical dermatologists to address a variety of situations that may be impacting their skin’s health or appearance. It is often done to alleviate issues that patients might be experiencing, including itching, redness, rashes, and pain. With a proper diagnosis and treatment from a clinical dermatologist, patients can address the issue and get back to a better quality of life!

What about cosmetic dermatology?

Some specific issues may cross into cosmetic dermatology from clinical dermatology. For example, patients might be dealing with rosacea issues, but want to alleviate the discomfort and embarrassment from experiencing this condition. Working with a dermatologist who has experience in both fields can help patients tremendously with various aspects of their skin concerns.
