Skin Disorders

Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of your body? It is, in terms of both weight, between 6 and 9 pounds, and surface area, about 2 square yards. Your skin separates the inside of your body from the outside world. It

  • Protects you from bacteria and viruses that can cause infections
  • Helps you sense the outside world, such as whether it is hot or cold, wet or dry
  • Regulates your body temperature

Conditions that irritate, clog or inflame your skin can cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, burning and itching. Allergies, irritants, your genetic makeup and certain diseases and immune system problems can cause dermatitis, hives and other skin conditions. Many skin problems, such as acne, also affect your appearance.

The aim at Dr. Bidani’s Centre is to deliver the highest quality of care to patients with skin disorders. Taking a close look at your skin is the crucial first step in improving how you care for your skin. This is why our dermatologic approach includes an in-depth personal skin consultation. This entails the application of the latest advances in the diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases in an atmosphere of compassion and respect.

Acne is a skin condition that causes whiteheads, blackheads, and inflamed red lesions (papules, pustules, and cysts) to form. These growths are commonly called pimples or “zits.” Acne affects mostly skin with the densest population of sebaceous follicles; these areas include the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a very common, often chronic (long-lasting) skin disease. Most commonly, it may be thought of as a type of skin allergy or sensitivity. The atopic dermatitis triad includes asthma, allergies (hay fever), and eczema. The hallmarks of the disease include skin rashes and itching.

Molluscum Contagiosum

Molluscum contagiosum is infection of the skin by a poxvirus that causes flesh-colored or white smooth, waxy bumps. It can affect any area of the skin but is most common on the trunk of the body, arms, and legs. It is spread through direct contact or shared items such as clothing or towels.
