The most common areas affected by acne include the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back.Although most acne usually disappears over time, some cases are more severe and can cause scarring and psychological issues.Fortunately, there are several treatment options available for acne that your dermatologist can recommend.

Also called “Atopic Dermatitis,” eczema is a common skin disease in children. Frequent during the first year of life, it appears as dry and scaly patches on the skin; most commonly found on the scalp, forehead and cheeks. It is often very itchy and can sometimes lead to a skin infection if not treated properly. Click here for more information about causes and treatments of eczema.
Nail diseases or disorders are distinct from diseases of the skin and have their own signs and symptoms that may relate to other medical conditions. Conditions that show signs of infection or inflammation require medical assistance, so contact us if you have any signs of infection or inflammation.
If you have a rash, it is important to identify what kind of rash you have. A few common itchy ones include: psoriasis, poison ivy, chicken pox, scabies, eczema, hives, ringworm, and athlete's foot. The good news is that once your dermatologist identifies the type, he/she can provide the relief you need. If your skin is itchy and uncomfortable and/or if you notice any unusual appearance on your skin, contact your dermatologist right away!
According to the US National Institutes of Health, UV radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. Artificial sources of UV radiation, such as tanning beds, can also cause skin cancer. Although more skin cancers develop after age 50, the sun’s damaging effects begin at an early age.

According to the US National Institutes of Health, UV radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. Artificial sources of UV radiation, such as tanning beds, can also cause skin cancer. Although more skin cancers develop after age 50, the sun’s damaging effects begin at an early age. Sunburn is the most obvious sign that you’ve been sitting outside for too long, but sun damage occurs UNDER the skin’s surface and can con-tribute to skin cancers, including deadly melanoma. Contact your doctor’s office if you notice any of these more serious signs: fever of 102 degrees or higher, chills, severe pain, blisters that cover 20% or more of your body, dry mouth, dizziness, reduced urination.
Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer, accounting for more than 90% of all skin cancer cases in the US. These cancers almost never spread, but can cause damage by growing and invading other surrounding tissue. Light-colored skin and sun exposure are both important factors in the development of basal cell carcinomas. If you notice any small, dome-shaped bumps often covered by small, superficial blood vessels that are often “pearly” in color, contact your dermatologist to schedule an appointment. It’s better to find out earlier than later in any type of skin cancer.
Melanoma is a kind of skin cancer. It is not as common as other types of skin cancer, but it is the most serious. It can affect your skin only, or it may spread to your organs and bones. As with other cancers, treatment for melanoma works best when the cancer is found early. We strongly recommend regular checkups with your dermatologist to help avoid this kind of cancer. Please contact us today to find out how to schedule an exam and stay on track for better health.
Psoriasis is a common skin condition that causes redness and irritation. Most people with psoriasis have thick, red skin with flaky, silver-white patches called scales. It is very common and most commonly begins between ages 15 and 35. Psoriasis is not contagious and seems to be passed down through families. It occurs when the body’s immune system mistakes healthy cells for dangerous substances. Click here for more information about causes and treatments of psoriasis.
Rosacea is a chronic inflammation of the skin on the face that can last for many years. It often develops into a rash, with papules and pustules, and spidery red veins. Rosacea affects about 1 in 10 adults and is more common in fair-skinned women. Problems in the skin’s blood vessels, sun damage, an abnormal inflammatory reaction and/or some medications are potential causes of rosacea. Fortunately, there are a lot of treatment options that dermatologists can recommend, so if you feel you suffer from this condition, please contact our office for a consultation.
Some moles and most skin tags are considered benign tumors that form in areas where the skin forms crease, such as the eyelids, neck, armpit and groin. Considered benign, treatment is unnecessary, but may be removed by a dermatologist if they become irritated or present a cosmetic concern. Dermatologists may use cauterization, cryosurgery, excision or surgical ligation to remove these tags.)
Warts occur when a virus comes in contact with your skin and causes an infection. They occur more frequently in broken skin because the virus can enter the top layer of skin through scratches or cuts. Unfortunately, warts are contagious and you can spread to other body parts as well as other people. Some warts will go away without treatment, but some do not. Most dermatologists agree that it is best to treat them right away. Contact our office if you have warts and are seeking treatment or removal.

I went to the dermatologist for a regular “mole patrol,” and was so glad I did! They found a suspicious mole on my back, but were able to take care of things quickly so I am OK. Now I don’t go too many places without my sunscreen and I’ll be sure to schedule annual checkups so I stay spot-free!
I was very nervous about my appointment when I first arrived, but Dr. Mizelle and his staff made me feel comfortable and at ease. His professionalism was some of the best I have seen and I’ve seen a lot of doctors in my day! Thank you for making me feel better about everything. I don’t worry so much anymore.
