The health of your hair, skin and nails are all connected. In addition to training in skin diseases, dermatologists have training and experience treating disorders of the hair and nails.
Common Hair Conditions
Common problems that can affect your hair include the following:
- Hair loss
- Hair breakage
- Scalp infection
Care for any of these conditions may include topical treatments, oral medications and injections. A procedure known as a platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) is one effective treatment for several types of hair loss.
Common Nail Conditions
Nail problems can be caused by infections or underlying medical conditions. Moles and skin cancer can also show up in the nails. If you notice changes in your nails, a dermatologist can help to determine the cause and formulate a treatment plan.
