When it comes to taking care of your skin, there are many issues that you may come across. It can be difficult to deal with these issues on your own and you might struggle to find the best solutions to handling certain imperfections. This is usually when a dermatologist can come in handy. Dr. Daniel Sherer and Dr. Todd Coven at Long Island Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology in Huntington and Hicksville, NY, and serving Syosset and Plainview, NY, can explain when to see your dermatologist and how it might benefit you.

When to See a Dermatologist

Seeing a dermatologist can be useful for many reasons! One of the most common reasons associated with seeing your dermatologist in Huntington, Hicksville, Syosset, and Plainview, NY, is usually acne. Acne can occur on your face, back, and chest most often and you may not know how to treat it on your own. Your dermatologist can examine your acne and come up with the best form of treatment for you.

If you’re dealing with an unknown rash, your dermatologist can also assist with that. They’ll be able to identify what you’re dealing with and get you started on treating that rash. There are different types of rashes, and your dermatologist can determine if you’re dealing with something like psoriasis or hives from an allergic reaction.

If you start noticing that you’re dealing with warts on your feet or hands, you should be sure to visit your dermatologist as soon as possible. Warts can be frozen off and you can start feeling more comfortable with people seeing your hands and feet again.

Find out why adding a dermatologist to your health care team could be great for your skincare health

When was the last time you visited a dermatologist? If you haven’t visited or are wondering why you should, you’ve come to the right place. Our Huntington and Hicksville, NY, dermatologists Dr. Daniel Sherer and Dr. Todd Coven offer a wide range of services dedicated to supporting, improving and managing healthy skin, nails and hair. Here are some reasons to book regular visits with our team.

Skin Cancer Screenings

It’s essential for every individual, regardless of risk factors, to schedule an annual skin cancer screening with our dermatologists. While you should always check your skin and moles to catch changes early on, the best way to detect cancer and precancerous skin lesions are by turning to us once a year for a quick, painless screening. This annual visit to our office could save your life.

Cosmetic Treatment Options

Do you want to improve the appearance of your skin? Somewhere along the line, most individuals want to turn to a dermatologist to treat imperfections or for anti-aging treatments. Whether you want chemical peels, laser resurfacing, Botox or dermal fillers, we offer a full range of cosmetic services that can all be tailored to your goals. By coming in a couple of times a year to get cosmetic skin treatments, we can improve and enhance the appearance of your skin.

Ongoing Treatments for Chronic Conditions

Are you dealing with chronic breakouts that don’t seem to respond no matter what you do? Do you keep dealing with red, scaly patches of skin? Do you experience a bright red rash on the face that burns or tingles? There are many reasons people can benefit from turning to our dermatologists. If you have been diagnosed with a chronic skin disorder (or think you might have one), you could undoubtedly benefit from turning to our team every few months to ensure that your current treatment plan works for you.

Tags: Warts  

Is it time to turn to a dermatologist about your warts?

Warts are more common than you might think, and while you might want to blame a toad for this relatively harmless but unattractive growth, the only way to get a wart is if you have been infected with the human papillomavirus. Don’t worry, though; warts are benign. However, if a wart is in a rather unpleasant or prominent spot, you may be more likely to want the wart removed. Our Huntington, NY, dermatologists Dr. Daniel Sherer and Dr. Todd Coven offer different wart removal options based on your needs.

At-Home Wart Treatments

All you have to do is go into your local pharmacy, and you’ll immediately see different wart removal options. Of course, if you also search the internet, you’ll find many DIY treatments. So, what will work for you? It’s hard to tell. Over-the-counter treatments may provide a patch, liquid, or freezing agent to target the wart.

Of course, some people turn to duct tape to slowly remove layers of the wart over time. However, it’s essential to recognize that you will need to continue using your at-home treatment regularly to get rid of the wart effectively.

Professional Wart Removal Options

If you have a wart in an awkward or sensitive location (e.g., the eyelid), or it is embarrassing or causing discomfort, it’s time to turn to our Huntington, NY, dermatologists to get effective wart removal. Some of the most common wart removal options include,

  • Excision: using a scalpel to remove the wart
  • Electrosurgery: a wart can also be removed by burning it away (sometimes electrosurgery is performed along with curettage, in which we scrape away the wart).
  • Cryotherapy: freezing the wart away (the most commonly used wart removal option)

Long Island Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology has practices in Huntington and Hicksville, NY, and is proud to serve the Syosset and Plainview, NY, communities. If you are looking for a dermatologist that can treat and remove your warts, call us at (631) 271-2769 or (516) 433-3200 to schedule an evaluation.

Help with Acne

A topic filled with misconceptions and anxiety, acne can be difficult to treat, but it is not impossible. One of these misconceptions is that acne should be allowed to simply run its course, but acne can be treated with the help of your dermatologist.

Treatment of Scars

Whether it's acne scars or those brought on by injury, surgery, or other means, your dermatologist can help minimize their appearance and can sometimes even eliminate them altogether using treatments like chemical peels.

Skin Conditions

Acne is but one of the many different types of conditions that can develop on your skin. These may share some similar symptoms to acne, but these conditions are varied and require treatment tailored to them.

Signs of Aging

Whether it's fine lines or wrinkles or other signs of aging that impact the way you feel about your skin, your dermatologist can also help. They can provide in-office treatments, such as injectables, or prescribe topical solutions to improve the appearance of your skin.

Tags: Hives  

Hives manifest as pinkish or red welts on our skin and can be itchy and sometimes painful. Our body responds to perceived threats by releasing a compound called histamine, but many of us have a negative reaction to it and can result in the above-mentioned symptoms. The condition, also known as urticaria, can arise in different places on our body and it often dissipates within a day. Emergency care may be necessary if it affects our throat, or tongue, or if we experience difficulty breathing. Special care should also be taken if hives continue to recur, which can mean that the condition is chronic. We'll explore some ways to minimize the symptoms but for professional help, it's recommended you contact our Huntington and Hicksville, NY, dermatologist. For more detailed help please contact Dr. Daniel Sherer and Dr. Todd Coven of Long Island Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology.

Triggers and Symptoms

The key to treating hives is to try to find the cause for the allergic reaction and to limit our exposure to this. They can be caused by foods, medication, and various elements in our environment like pollen, pet dander, and other allergens.

Exercise, sweat, and tight clothing can bring about the symptoms, and even stress has been shown to contribute to the condition.

Dermatologist in Huntington and Hicksville, NY

Avoiding these triggers can be a good first step in managing the symptoms of hives. But in dealing with them directly our course of action is to address the itching and pain.

Natural and over-the-counter products can help, but if they don't provide the relief we're looking for then it may be time to consult with our dermatologist.

Recurring episodes and severe symptoms be examined and diagnosed by a doctor, who can then prescribe medication to deal with the discomfort.

So schedule a consultation today with our dermatologists in Huntington and Hicksville, and also serving Syosset and Plainview, NY. Make an appointment with Dr. Sherer and Dr. Coven of Long Island Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology by dialing (631) 271-2769 for the Huntington, NY, office and (516) 433-3200 for Hicksville, NY.
