Mr Faheem Latheef offers dermatology appointments for the following conditions:
Atopic eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is the most common form of eczema and makes your skin itchy, red, dry and cracked.
It’s a long-term condition in most people, although it can improve over time, especially in children, who often grow out of it.
It can affect any part of the body, but most commonly affects:
- the backs or fronts of the knees
- outside or inside the elbows
- around the neck, hands, cheeks or scalp
Treatment, which includes using moisturisers and topical steroids, can help relieve symptoms.
Rosacea is a common but poorly understood long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face.
It can be controlled to some degree with long-term treatment, but sometimes the changes in physical appearance can have a significant psychological impact.
Symptoms of rosacea
Symptoms often begin with episodes of flushing, where the skin turns red for a short period, but other symptoms can develop as the condition progresses, such as:
- burning and stinging sensations
- permanent redness
- spots (papules and pustules)
- small blood vessels in the skin becoming visible
Rosacea is a relapsing condition, which means there are periods when symptoms are particularly bad, but less severe at others.
Cold sores are small blisters that develop on the lips or around the mouth, caused by the herpes simplex virus.
They often start with a tingling, itching or burning sensation around your mouth. Small fluid-filled sores then appear, usually on the edges of your lower lip.
Cold sores usually clear up without treatment within 7 to 10 days, but antiviral creams are available from pharmacies over the counter. These can help ease your symptoms and speed up the healing time.
Impetigo is a very contagious skin infection that causes sores and blisters. There are two types:
- non-bullous impetigo – typically affects the nose and mouth
- bullous impetigo – typically affects the trunk
It’s more common in children, but can affect anyone.
The infection is likely to clear up by itself within three weeks, but it’s a good idea to see your GP for a diagnosis as the symptoms are similar to other, more serious conditions.
Your GP can also prescribe antibiotic cream or tablets to get rid of it quickly.
Itching can affect any area of the body. Mild, short-lived itching is common, but it can sometimes be severe and frustrating to live with.
There are things you can do that may help, including:
- patting or tapping the itchy area, rather than scratching
- cooling the area with a cold compress, such as a damp flannel
- bathing or showering in cool or lukewarm water
- using unperfumed personal hygiene products
- avoiding clothes that irritate your skin, such as wool or man-made fabrics
- using a moisturiser if your skin is dry or flaky
Antihistamine and steroid cream may help relieve itching caused by certain skin conditions.
Psoriasis typically causes flaky red patches of skin covered in silver scales. The patches usually appear on the elbows, knees and the lower back, and can be itchy or sore.
For some people, psoriasis is just a minor irritation, but for others it can have a major impact on their quality of life.
People with psoriasis usually have periods when they have no or mild symptoms, followed by periods when symptoms are more severe.
Most people are treated by their GP, but you may be referred to a skin specialist called a dermatologist if your psoriasis is severe.
Although there is no cure for psoriasis, treatments can improve your symptoms. They include:
- creams and ointments
- treatment with light (phototherapy)
- medication taken by mouth or injection
Warts and verrucas
Warts are small lumps that can appear anywhere, but usually affect the hands and feet. A wart on the foot is called a verruca.
Most warts are harmless and clear up without treatment, but you might decide to treat your wart if it’s painful, or if it’s causing discomfort or embarrassment.
- salicylic acid
- freezing the wart (cryotherapy)
- duct tape
- chemical treatments
A minimum of 72 hours is required to reschedule, 7 days to cancel an appointment. Please see our T’s & C’s for full details.
