Skin Disorders Q&A

What are skin disorders?

Skin disorders are problems affecting your skin’s appearance and function.

Some skin disorders are mildly irritating, while others are painful conditions that complicate daily living. Some only last a short while, but others recur throughout your lifetime.

The Soine Dermatology & Aesthetics team specializes in diagnosing and treating skin disorders in children and adults of all ages.

What skin disorders might affect me?

Common skin disorders treated at Soine Dermatology & Aesthetics include:


Acne causes areas of painful red or pus-filled pimples. It’s a common problem for adolescents, but many adults experience it too.


Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder that causes skin cells to multiply too quickly. This creates itchy, flaky patches called plaques.


Eczema often begins in childhood, causing red, itchy, sore, flaking skin patches.


Rosacea makes your facial skin look excessively red all the time. Varying kinds might also cause acne-like pimples or a red, thickened nose.

Hives and rashes

Hives and rashes are usually temporary reactions to a substance you eat or touch or something else in your environment.

Skin cancer

Slow-growing skin cancers include squamous and basal cell carcinomas. Melanoma is a faster-growing, more dangerous form.


People with hyperhidrosis sweat excessively.  


Warts are small, hard lumps usually caused by a virus.

The Soine Dermatology & Aesthetics team’s board-certified physicians specialize in skin disorders.

How are skin disorders treated?

Treatment for skin disorders varies depending on your condition and its severity. Your Soine Dermatology & Aesthetics provider completes a thorough physical exam and medical history review and might take skin and/or blood samples for lab analysis.

After diagnosing your condition, your provider creates a treatment plan that addresses the disorder’s root cause and reduces or relieves your symptoms. Some of the many treatments they offer include:

  • Salicylic acid
  • Anthralin medication
  • Calcipotriene and calcitriol vitamin D creams
  • Retinoid gel or cream
  • Calcineurin inhibitors
  • Biologic treatments
  • Laser therapy
  • Cortisone cream
  • Antihistamines
  • Anti-itch cream
  • Broadband light (BBL)
  • Isotretinoin medication
  • Oral antibiotics
  • Retinoic or azelaic acid creams or ointments
  • Phototherapy

Skin care is also vital. Hydration, moisturization, cleansing, and a healthy diet and lifestyle benefit your skin.

If you have a condition like eczema or contact dermatitis, you’ll need to identify and avoid the allergens or triggers that worsen your condition. For example, using nonperfumed soaps and dermatologically approved skin care products.
