These skin conditions and diseases are actually very common and can be treated through medical care. Moles can appear almost anywhere on the skin and most of them are normal and healthy. However, some moles can be bothersome and can even transform into melanoma. Moles may darken after exposure to the sun.

If you notice any irregularities or changes to moles on your body, it’s important to consult with a dermatologist right away. There are many different types of skin rashes that can appear on the body and they can all mean different things. An itchy rash that does not subside should be looked at by a dermatologist.

Skin rashes are a skin condition that do not necessarily form from an underlying disease. Certain causes may include hot weather, direct exposure to the sun, and certain clothing material. Hives are a type of skin rash that is triggered by an allergic reaction to food or medication. If you are allergic to dust, pollen, or a specific food, you can break out in itchy hives when you come in close contact with the allergy.

Common skin rashes include eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and shingles. The best way to treat skin rashes that are present is to visit a medical professional such as a dermatologist. The doctor will be able to fully asses the condition and provide you with the best option for treating skin rashes. Certain hydrocortisone creams and even calamine lotion can help relieve specific rashes and itching.

Mole Treatment and Mole Removal

There are certain moles that can be problematic and even cancerous. If you notice a change on a particular mole, it’s very important to visit a dermatologist for a skin examination. There are no creams or lotions that can treat moles, however there are mole removal techniques that can safely keep the skin healthy. If your mole happens to be cancerous, a dermatologist will conduct a surgical procedure to completely remove it.

Wart Treatment

There are different effective methods that help warts go away. Prescription strength wart medications help to remove layers of a wart over time. A common wart treatment method includes freezing the wart, also known as cryotherapy. A dermatologist will apply liquid nitrogen directly to your wart to create a blister. Over time, the blister will fall off. While this method is effective, kids may feel pain as a side effect. It’s important to realize that there are treatments available that can help prevent future warts from forming.
