Dermatology treatment includes the treatment and diagnosis of skin conditions as well as some hair and nail conditions. Some common skin problems today include acne, rosacea, eczema, and hives. Skin problems are often thought of as something that occur predominantly in teenagers, but many adults struggle with skin issues like acne well into their 40s and beyond. An experienced physician can help get the skin under control with treatments like topical ointments, oral medications, and hormone therapy where indicated.
Hormone replacement therapy is prescribed for women who experience a depletion in estrogen and progesterone levels. This drop in hormones is a common part of menopause. Hormone replacement therapy can be used to bring those hormones back up to normal levels. Low hormone levels can have a number of negative effects. Women may experience hot flashes, insomnia, and vaginal dryness. Hormone replacement therapy can correct all of these issues and will make a woman feel happier, healthier, and more balanced overall.
Part of diabetes management is working closely with an experienced family medicine doctor. Patients who suffer from diabetes need to be committed fully to lifestyle change. Many of the symptoms of diabetes can be greatly reduced with proper food choices and regular physical activity. The doctor can also prescribe medication that can help alleviate the symptoms of diabetes. Oral medications can be very helpful in both the management of pre-diabetes and in the management of active diabetes. For some people, regular insulin injections are required to keep diabetes under control.
High blood pressure management, like diabetes management, requires a commitment to a lifestyle change. Patients who suffer from high blood pressure need to follow a healthy eating plan, exercise regularly, and take medication in some cases.
