    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    Patients present with a wide range of dermatological issues, commonly with conditions such as acne, eczema and patients who are concerned about their moles and whether they're worried about the risk of skin cancer.

    I often see patients who present with a brief history of acne or those that have come along with rather late onset acne. The acne can affect them to such an extent that they find it difficult to function on a social level and get them to leave the house.

    We offer a wide range of treatments of acne, many of which are very effective, which tend to improve the condition. The acne is a long-term condition and it often takes a number of months for it to improve.

    In terms of mole checks, patients find it very reassuring to have a skin expert to check all their moles. If we find anything of concern, we can take them to theatre and remove the lesion that's worrying.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    There are hundreds of different dermatological diagnoses and hundreds of different treatments. The treatments vary depending on the problem the patient is presenting with.

    Every patient is given a very tailored treatment plan which is specifically aimed to help their condition. This might include simply changing emollients, topical treatments such as steroids or other topical immunosuppressants, treatments to remove areas of sun damage and then treatments of cryotherapy or surgical intervention. We also use other modalities such as light treatments and photodynamic therapy for certain skin lesions. The list is endless.

    In addition to that, we use a lot of systemic treatments, such as tablets that help with inflammatory conditions of the skin.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    My interest in dermatology was sparked by undertaking research into acne. That's how I started in dermatology in 1993. I've developed an interest in skin cancer. Both of those are my areas of particular interest. These are complemented by my research which is based on the genetics of both disorders and the genetics of the moles. Having lots of moles is a risk for developing skin cancer.
