What is medical dermatology?

Medical dermatology is an area of medicine that focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing skin, hair, and nail conditions. 

From rashes to chronic conditions, Dr. Seeker and her team provide comprehensive care for all types of skin concerns at Seeker Dermatology. The practice uses the most advanced diagnostic tools to ensure your treatment plan addresses your unique needs.

What types of skin concerns can medical dermatology address?

Medical dermatology can address multiple skin conditions, such as:


Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes red, dry, itchy patches of inflamed skin. It can appear anywhere on your body, including the elbows, knees, and trunk. Without treatment, eczema increases your risk of blisters and infection.


Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that leads to scaly areas of the skin. There are many different types of psoriasis, and understanding your specific type can help you avoid triggers and minimize flare-ups.


Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that causes red bumps to form. Anybody can get acne, but it’s most common in teenagers.


Rosacea is a chronic condition that appears as redness and visible facial blood vessels. It may resemble acne and other common skin disorders. Finding an effective treatment for rosacea can be difficult without support from a dermatologist. Dr. Seeker and her team can help identify your triggers and calm your redness.

Lumps and bumps

Skin lumps and bumps include warts, cysts, lipomas (fatty bumps), skin tags, and other lesions that can affect your health and self-esteem.

Skin cancer

Skin cancer causes abnormal skin cells to grow and divide rapidly, leading to lesions that destroy your tissues. Without early intervention, many types of skin cancer can metastasize (spread) to other areas of the body.

What types of treatments are available in medical dermatology?

Dr. Seeker and her team offer several medical dermatology treatments for patients of all ages, including:

  • Topical antibiotics
  • Oral medications
  • Laser treatments
  • Photodynamic therapy (light therapy)
  • Surgical excision
  • Mohs surgery
  • Diet and lifestyle changes

For any treatments the practice doesn’t offer, Dr. Seeker can refer you to another specialist.
