Dermatology & Plastic Surgery
Do you or someone you know suffer from dermatological issues or disorders that affect your skin’s health, your appearance or both? You are not alone!
Dermatology is the branch of medicine dealing with the functions and structures of the skin, nails, and hair.
Did you know that your skin is your body’s largest organ? Its role is to completely cover and to protect your body, and also to help you feel the environment outside. When the skin is irritated, inflamed or clogged, it reacts with symptoms such as redness, burning, swelling or itching. Allergic reactions, such as itching or other conditions, may also result. Skin can be troubled by many different disorders. Some are simply nuisances that are short term and easily treated, but others may be extremely troublesome and can last for long periods of time.
Many dermatological problems, such as acne or eczema (atopic dermatitis), can affect your appearance. We routinely conduct research studies in conditions and afflictions of the skin.
Current studies being Conducted at Axiom Research Include:
Prurigo Nodularis and Hidradentis Suppurativa.
SYMPTOMS OF PRURIGO NODULARIS MAY INCLUDE:
- Hard, itchy nodules (lumps) on the skin
- Intense itching (to the point of pain and bleeding with scratching)
- Additional lesions that form with scratching
SYMPTOMS OF HIDRADENITIS SUPPURATIVA (Acne Inversa) MAY INCLUDE:
- Longterm skin disease
- Inflammed and swollen lumps
- Lumps are painful and break open releasing pus or fluid
- Commonly affect the underarms, under the breasts and groin area
- Scar tissue remains after healing
- May result in depression from an altered appearance
