What are skin conditions?

Skin conditions are disorders that affect the health and appearance of your skin. A skin condition can be acute or chronic. It may cause itching, pain, or visible rash. Finding the right treatment for your condition can help control its symptoms and improve your quality of life. 

Dr. Seeker and her team utilize the latest diagnostic tools and effective treatment options to address skin conditions at Seeker Dermatology.

Are there different types of skin conditions?

Dr. Seeker and her team address many types of skin conditions at Seeker Dermatology, including:


An autoimmune disease, psoriasis causes red, scaly, silver patches of skin. It occurs when your skin cells multiply quickly and collect on the skin. While there is no cure for psoriasis, many topical and oral therapies can help reduce flare-ups.


Eczema is a chronic disorder that causes red, itchy areas of the skin. It often develops inside the arms and on the back of the knees. Without treatment, eczema can bleed and blister, increasing your risk of infection. Dr. Seeker and her team can create an individualized treatment plan that minimizes your flare-ups.


Also called the “mask of pregnancy,” melasma is a pigmentary disorder that causes brown patches of skin to develop. It often occurs during or right after pregnancy.


Rosacea causes chronic redness and broken blood vessels that make your skin appear flushed. Some people experience small red bumps on their skin that resemble acne. Dr. Seeker and her team offer topical, oral, and laser treatments to minimize rosacea symptoms.

Skin rashes

A skin rash can be the result of an allergic reaction, irritant, or abrasion. A proper diagnosis is essential to diagnose your specific rash.

Skin cancer

Skin cancer is an overgrowth of abnormal cells in the epidermis (the skin’s outer layer). While most types of skin cancer are not fatal, melanoma can be without early intervention.

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

Excessive sweating can diminish your self-esteem and quality of life. Dr. Seeker and her team work with you to uncover the cause of hyperhidrosis and develop the appropriate treatment plan.
