In Dermatology Clinic of our hospital, disorders of skin and hair and sexually transmitted diseases are examined, followed-up and treated using modern technological methods. Also, dermatocosmetological interventions are done parallel to medical treatments.
Some of the diseases that are followed-up in our hospital are as follows: Psoriasis, Vitiligo, Fungus, Eczema, scalp conditions, disorders associated with rash, disorders associated with itching, nail disorders, acne, pediatric skin disorders, itching and skin disorders in pregnancy, abnormal hair growth, skin cancer and nevus and abnormal pigmentation (disorders associated with discoloration)
Fungus is a kind of microorganism that is commonly found in the nature. They may infect the uppermost layer of skin, called stratum corneum, and hair and nail. Common superficial fungal infections of skin involve feet (plantar region and toe webs), nails and bilateral groins. In addition, it is more commonly manifested in hair, scalp and face in children, while it can be seen in the beard region in men. It is less common in the hand and other body parts.
Fungal infections that particularly involve the hands and feet may not be as itchy as it is considered. They may be characterized by thin rashes, fluid-filled blisters, redness and dry areas. When the condition occurs in scalp, hair loss, weak hair and purulent blisters in the beard region are likely. Thickening and yellow-black or sometimes white discoloration are seen in nails. However, not all nail changes are fungal infection.
Nevi, also colloquially referred to as “mole”, are black to light to dark brown formations that are round or ovoid in shape, are slightly elevated from or at same level with the skin and measure 3 to 5 mm in size. They may exist even in the birth or they may appear in childhood or subsequent periods of life. Since certain types of nevus poses risk of malignant transformation, it is necessary to know characteristics of such nevi and follow-up them.
Malignant melamoma is a malignant skin cancer that became more prevalent in recent years and may originate from existing nevi. For this type of skin cancer, the most effective treatment is surgical excision after the diagnosis is established as early as possible.
It is a false fact that malignant transformation or spread is likely, when a nevus is surgically removed. In case of suspicious nevus or a similar formation, it is strongly advised to see a dermatologist immediately.
