Dermatology involves the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions as well as diseases of the nails, scalp and hair. A doctor who specialises in this area is called a dermatologist.

You might see a dermatologist for medical reasons or if you’d like surgery to remove unwanted marks or moles. You may choose to see our consultant plastic surgeon who specialises in skin cancer and runs a mole mapping service.

Skin conditions can be caused by irritants, allergens, diseases such as cancer, stress, autoimmunity or genetic factors. Common symptoms of skin problems include:

  • Spots on the skin
  • Skin that’s itchy, red, flaky and dry
  • A mole that’s grown bigger
  • Hard, dry, scaly spots of skin

At Sulis Hospital Bath, we see and help people just like you who may need:

  • Treatment for acne
  • Removal of a skin lesion
  • Skin cancer treatment
  • Treatment for psoriasis

Your consultations and treatment will be carried out by the specialist dermatology team here at Sulis Hospital Bath. All our staff are experts in problems and diseases of the skin and are dedicated to getting you treated and fully recovered quickly and safely.

Here at Sulis Hospital Bath, we’ll make sure that you always receive the best treatment possible for any skin problem. Get in touch today to see how we can help.

We know that having a skin problem can sometimes make you feel self-conscious. That’s why here at Sulis Hospital Bath we will:

  • diagnose and treat your skin condition fast: so you don’t have to feel anxious any longer.
  • help you to quickly recover: so that you can get back to enjoying life.

When you book an appointment with us, you’ll be seen by one of our friendly consultants who specialise in skin conditions. They have many years of experience treating people with symptoms just like yours.

They’ll have a chat with you about your symptoms and your previous medical history to get a thorough understanding of things and will talk through any concerns.

They’ll want to have a good look at the affected area of your skin and will carry out a detailed examination. Depending on your symptoms, they may like to carry out some additional tests to help them assess things more accurately.

Some of the additional tests that may be carried out are:

  • Allergy testing.
  • Mole Mapping: this is a screening service for those concerned about skin cancer.
  • Biopsy: a sample of the affected area is removed and sent for testing. This is particularly useful if any type of skin cancer is being queried.

These additional tests won’t necessarily be required, and the consultant may want you to have additional tests that aren’t listed above (any tests will be thoroughly explained to you beforehand so that you know how the tests will be carried out and why they’re being done).

We believe in giving you a quick, accurate diagnosis. A longer wait for results means additional worry for you, which is something that you just don’t need.

After your appointment, the consultant may decide that treatment can be provided by medication (for example, a cream or ointment to apply to the affected area).

If it’s determined that further investigation or surgery will be required, the consultant will talk you through the process thoroughly and answer any questions you may have.

If you’re concerned about a skin condition, why not get in touch with us today to book your consultation?
