Healthier Skin Begins with Your GP
Your body’s largest organ deserves extra-special treatment. Australia’s damaging sun, infections and common diseases such as eczema can all play havoc with your skin.
Most doctors are trained in a wide range of general dermatology issues, including skin cancer checks. Regardless of your skin tone, we recommend patients get screened for suspicious spots and moles regularly. Early detection is vital.
On a daily basis, we also treat:
- eczema and psoriasis
- fungal infections
- hair loss
- mole and lesion removal
- rosacea and
- skin tags
What’s more, we appreciate the importance of tackling the indirect effects of skin complaints. All doctors are experienced in treating mental health challenges and secondary health concerns resulting from poor skin health.
