Skin Signs to Look For

Dr. Lamb is one terrific physician. To quote a nurse who told me privately: "She's awesome." Indeed she is - and I am so grateful to have such a wonderful - truly awesome - doctor like Dr. Angela Lamb.

Total Body Skin Cancer Screenings

During this exam, I examine your skin for any abnormalities using a dermatoscope. This helps me distinguish between normal and abnormal lesions. A total body skin cancer screening should be performed yearly or every other year depending on sun exposure.

Skin Biopsy

If a worrisome lesion is found during your exam, often it may be necessary to perform a skin biopsy. I try very hard to be discerning in what I biopsy. Sometimes monitoring the lesion is more appropriate.

Fungal Infections

Yeast and mold live on the skin surface as normal inhabitants. Sometimes they can overgrow, and sometimes you can actually catch an infection from a pet or the gym. Fungal infections can impact your nails, skin, and hair, and it is important to treat these early so that they do not spread.

Acne

It can be very rewarding to go from daily blemishes to makeup-free skin. I can get you there. It is important to understand that everyone's acne is different. Some is hormonal, some is stress related, some is being driven by products that you are putting on your face. Let's work together to get to the bottom of your acne.

Hair Loss

We have most patients answer a hair loss questionnaire to determine the main causes of hair loss. I use the Regen Lab PRP kit for hair loss and skin rejuvenation and will soon start using the CosmoFrance PRF treatment in place of and in addition to fillers.

Birthmarks

There are different types of growths that you might consider birthmarks. Some are brown congenital nevi or café au lait macules, while others are vascular malformations or hemangiomas. We are able to monitor small lesions in our office, but larger vascular malformations may require a referral.

Moles

A mole is a brownish growth that you can be born with, but often you have multiple that increase with age. It is important to get moles checked annually or biannually, depending on sun exposure. You want to look for moles that are bleeding, burning, itching, or growing very fast as signs of concern.

Skin Cancer

Skin cancer has three main types: melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma. The key for all three is early detection and sun protection and avoidance. Signs of skin cancer are new lumps or bumps that grow very fast or are bleeding, burning or itching.

Rough Skin

Often a condition called keratosis pilaris may be the root cause of rough skin, but other simple changes, like better moisturizers, can also frequently do the trick.

Rashes

New rashes can be frustrating for patients and physicians alike. Sometimes it is easy to tell from just looking at the pattern or presentation of the rash what exactly might be causing it, but sometimes patients may require a biopsy.

Eczema

Eczema is a problem with your immune system overreacting to the environment. Sometimes it may actually be an allergy to ingredients in everyday skincare products. We will try to determine the cause, but if no triggers can be found, then we will look to the best treatments for your situation.

Psoriasis

There are so many new and exciting treatments on the horizon for psoriasis. We look forward to sharing all of the treatment options with our patients for this often-frustrating condition. We treat psoriasis with injectable medication, topical creams, light therapy, and oral medication.

Warts

Genital and common warts are caused by HPV. There are different types of HPV, and most are caught during childhood from family members and friends. Treatments include cryotherapy, candida antigen, TCA and salicylic acid and a variety of home treatments.

Medication Reactions

Medication reactions often occur during or after taking a medication or while on a chemotherapy agent. These are often not life threatening and can be managed.

Seborrheic Keratosis

These are the most common skin growth that I get asked about. They often look very scary, but are completely benign. They tend to run in families and look like warty growths on the skin.

Contact Dermatitis

This is an allergic reaction to common skin products that may have developed over time. Patients often find it hard to believe that they could be allergic to something that they have used for years.

Sweating

You often notice when you sweat more than others. Either you notice that your shirts always look wet or your palms are always sweaty. There are new topical treatments for this condition and sometimes injections can be approved that we can administer in the office.
