MOHS SURGERY

MOHS SURGERY

Mohs surgery is a technique that provides the highest clearance rates of tumors in cosmetically sensitive regions.

This is accomplished by microscopic evaluation of the entire edge of a tumor, unlike traditional methods that can only visualize a small percentage of the tumor’s edge. Once your tumor is removed, our 3 ACGME fellowship trained surgeons strive to give you the highest quality cosmetic result and will follow along with you through the entire healing process.

At Associates in Dermatology, we provide comprehensive surgical care for a variety of dermatological conditions.

PATCH TESTING

PATCH TESTING

Do you think you could have an allergy to a product you are using, or a metal allergy? Call our office to have one of our providers evaluate you for a potential contact allergy.

What is Contact Dermatitis?

Contact dermatitis is a rash that occurs when your skin comes into contact with a substance that causes an immune response. This reaction can happen even to substances that you have used safely for years. It may be difficult to diagnose since contact dermatitis may coexist with or look identical to other kinds of eczema.
Once you have developed a contact allergy, it is often difficult to avoid the culprit allergen without knowing exactly what you need to avoid, since many products are made with similar ingredients, and some substances may be found in many different things.

How is Contact Dermatitis diagnosed?

Contact dermatitis should be considered in new cases of eczema, when there are changes in chronic cases of eczema such as in location, severity, or appearance, and whenever eczema isn’t responding to treatment. It may be particularly difficult to identify contact dermatitis in people with atopic dermatitis. Your health care provider may diagnose you with irritant or allergic contact dermatitis based on evaluation of your medical history, exposures, and symptoms, and with a procedure called patch testing.

What is Patch Testing?

Patch testing is a procedure where allergens are placed on your back for 2 days, then removed. After removal, your back is examined for any reactions. Around two days after removing the patches, you will return to the office again for your second reading. At this time, your provider will determine if it is necessary to perform additional readings after your second reading.

Note that patch testing is not the same as prick testing, which is a different allergy test that is used to diagnose other kinds of allergies, such as hay fever, and is not helpful in diagnosing allergic contact dermatitis.
