Dawn E. Kleinman, MD, David C. Kowalski, MD, Tara L. Stewart, MD, and the staff of Alamance Skin Center provide our patients with a Health Education Library. The Library includes dermatology handouts and links to medical organizations trusted bydermatologists.

Skin care topics include:

Acne is a common skin condition affecting our teenage and adult patients. The Library reviews acne myths, acne medicines, and other acne treatments that we recommend. Learn more about acne from the AAD.

Eczema, also called "atopic dermatitis", causes recurrent bouts of dry, itching and inflamed skin. The Library reviews treatment options and dermatologist recommended tips to manage your eczema, including the use of moisturizers. Learn more abouteczema from the National Eczema Association.

Psoriasis is a chronic, autoimmune skin disease. Read about the different types of psoriasis (plaque psoriasis, scalp psoriasis) and psoriasis treatment options that are available, including corticosteroids, vitamin D derivatives, retinoids, phototherapy (PUVA), and new "biologics". Your dermatologist will prescribe psoriasis medications based on the type of psoriasis, its location, severity, duration and history of previous treatments. Learn more aboutpsoriasis from the National Psoriasis Foundation.

Rosacea is a common skin disorder treated by dermatologists that causes redness and an acne-like rash on the face. The Library reviews the different types of rosacea and rosacea treatment options, including laser and light treatments. Learn more aboutrosacea from the National Rosacea Society.

Skin Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) are the two major forms of "non-melanoma" skin cancer. The Library reviews skin cancer types and skin cancer treatment options, including medications (Aldara, 5-FU), excision, and Mohs Surgery. Dermatologists advise the regular use of sunscreens and sun avoidance measures to reduce your risk of developing skin cancer.

Dawn E. Kleinman, MD, David C. Kowalski, MD, Tara L. Stewart, MD, and the staff of Alamance Skin Center hope that the dermatologist recommended information helps you to better understand your health and take care of your skin.
