Medical & Pediatric Dermatology
Medical dermatology involves the evaluation and diagnosis for diseases of the skin, hair, lips, and mouth to improve overall health. Medical dermatology treatments then work to control those disorders or diseases that are confined to the skin using a wide range of options. The skin will sometimes show dermatologists that something may be going on with the body internally, and it is through medical dermatology that they analyze the affected area and perform the best possible treatment for a patient’s personal condition. Not only does medical dermatology encompass a series of treatments to assist patients with any skin condition they may face, but it also helps to maintain the healthier look and feel to their skin.

Some are known to cause cervical cancer, but common warts that affect nongenital skin are not thought to have malignant potential.
