Is it safe to see your dermatologist during a pandemic?

Wondering if it is safe to see your dermatologist during a pandemic? These are the steps we have taken at Advanced Dermatology of the Midlands to keep patients, staff, and the community safe.

Itching Without Rash and Dry Skin
Itching Without Rash and Dry Skin

As we enter the wintertime, on the verge of another bout of winter weather, we would like to focus a bit more on itching of the skin. Itching, after all, is most common in the winter. Itching can be localized to certain areas of the skin, for example in the skin over bug bites. In uncommon cases, it can be widespread, affecting all the skin. The best dermatologists know that the number one cause of widespread itching without a rash is dry skin. In most cases of widespread itching all over due to dryness, you may have little or no rash.

Unwanted Hair Growth and Removal
Unwanted Hair Growth and Removal

Unwanted hair growth in various areas of the body is a common problem that we see in our clinics at Advanced Dermatology of the Midlands. Unwanted hair growth can run in families. Though women tend to seek care for this problem more frequently, men can be affected by unwanted or excess hair growth as well. In women, some of the most common areas that are problematic are the upper lip and chin, and neck. The chest, especially the area around the nipples, legs, and bikini area are also spots where women often seek to rid themselves of unwanted hair follicles. In contrast, men are most often bothered by unwanted hair growth on the back and ears, as well as excessively thick hair and the eyebrows and region between the eyebrows known as the glabella—causing the problem frequently referred to as the monobrow or unibrow.
