Accurate Medical Diagnosis for Skin Disorders
Diagnosing your problem
Skin disorders can occur in different forms and with different symptoms. Dr. Applebaum can help determine the type of skin disorder and provide proper treatment.
- Hives: Or Urticaria occur spontaneously or repeatedly over any period of time. Can be associated with chronic underlying medical conditions, infections, or untreated environmental and/or food allergies.
- Eczema: Or Atopic Dermatitis, often seen in infants and young children as the initial sign of allergic disease, but may occur at any age. It may also present as dry skin/patches without overt rash. Commonly associated with food and environmental allergies and asthma.
- Angioedema: Swelling of soft tissue that may occur in association with other skin disorders, particularly Urticaria or in isolation. It may become life-threatening if untreated.
- Variable Skin Rash: May present in various forms with or without itching anywhere on your body. It's often associated with adverse reactions to medications, food, or the environment, including pets
- Itching: May occur even without a rash and may indicate underlying Allergic inflammation of the skin tissue.
- Persistent acne and rosacea: Are often manifestations of misdiagnosed Atopic Dermatitis that occur on the face without itching. More common in teenagers and adults and often resistant to most other treatments until specific Allergic triggers are identified and treated.
