A dermatologist is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the skin, hair, and nails. If you are experiencing skin rashes or spots, issues with nail fungus, or problems with your hair, contacting a specialist in dermatology in Memphis could provide you with the relief you need.
After college, a dermatologist completes four years of medical school, at least one year of internship, and three years of advanced training in dermatology.
Dermatologists use medical and surgical treatments to help the skin heal. Sometimes a lesion may need to be removed, with or without stitches, and is generally sent to a lab for analysis. Other times, a lesion may be treated with liquid nitrogen through a process called cryotherapy.
The initial consultation will typically involve the doctor taking a medical history, doing a physical examination, and sometimes ordering tests on the skin, including blood tests. Follow up appointments are often necessary.
