What is general dermatology?

What conditions does general dermatology treat?

Dazzling Dermatology treats all types of skin, hair, and nail conditions, including:


Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder that occurs when the sebaceous glands become clogged with dead skin, oils, and other debris.

Eczema (atopic dermatitis)

Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, causes red, itchy, dry patches of skin that commonly develop on the face, inside the elbows, and on the back of the knees.

Contact dermatitis

Contact dermatitis is a red, itchy rash that develops when your skin touches an allergen, like fragrances, cosmetics, poison ivy, or nickel jewelry.

Alopecia (hair loss)

Alopecia refers to a group of disorders that cause hair loss. It occurs when your body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles, causing clumps of hair to fall out.


Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that leads to red, scaly, itchy patches of skin. There are many types of psoriasis, but the most common ones cause patches to develop on the scalp, face, elbows, and knees.

Hidradenitis suppurativa

Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic condition that causes painful red bumps to appear in areas where the skin folds, such as the armpits or groin.

Skin cancer

Skin cancer occurs when an overgrowth of abnormal skin cells multiply rapidly. The three most common types of skin cancer are: basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma.

Fungal nails

Nail fungus is an infection that can penetrate your fingernails or toenails. Without treatment, fungus can cause discolored, deformed, crumbling nails. If you have toenail fungus, you’re also at a higher risk of developing the itchy skin condition, Athlete’s foot.


Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes facial flushing, redness, visible blood vessels, and small, pus-filled bumps. While rosacea affects everyone differently, it commonly affects the nose, cheeks, and chin.


Warts are raised growths that can develop anywhere on the body, including the hands, elbows, knees, genitals, and soles of the feet.
