Rashes & Ezcema
Eczema is a chronic condition of itchy skin and scaly rash. This condition is very common in children and is usually the cause of skin rashes that itch. The symptoms of eczema vary depending with age. In infants, eczema appears as a skin rash on face or scalp causing the skin to be dry, scaly and itchy. In children aged 2 years old to puberty, the eczema rash appears on elbows or knees and often times the skin begins to thicken and itch. The symptoms in adults with eczema are very similar to those in children.
If you or your child is suffering from eczema, Dr. Dubow can prescribe a treatment for eczema to reduce and control the rash. While there are many at home treatments like using a cold compress or taking antihistamines to reduce severe itching and keeping the skin moisturized, Dr. Dubow may prescribe topical creams or ointments to medicate the rash. The best eczema cream varies from patient to patient.
Growths & Moles
Moles are very common and almost every adult has few of them. Most moles are harmless, however in some cases they may become cancerous. Moles can differ in size, shape and color, and can appear anywhere on the skin. It is very important to monitor moles and other pigmented patches in order to detect possible skin cancer growths. If you think you have a mole that is showing signs of skin cancers, it is important to come see Dr. Dubow as soon as possible.
Unless you have a pre-cancerous or cancerous mole, there is really no reason for mole removal. However, if a mole does need to be removed Dr. Dubow can easily remove it in the office.

Excessive perspiration, or hyperhidrosis, can either be generalized or localized to specific body parts. Hands, feet, armpits and the back are the most common areas that are affected by excessive sweating. There are several excessive perspiration causes, including genetics, obesity, an overactive sympathetic nerve, or hormonal changes.
There are multiple treatments to manage excessive perspiration including medications, Botox injections or, in some cases, surgery.

Cellulite is an unsightly skin condition involving areas of dimpled skin on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen that affects as much as 80% of all women over the age of 20. Men may develop cellulite as well, but it tends to occur more frequently in women because of the way their fat is distributed. Aging, heredity, stress, inactivity and weight gain may also contribute to the development of cellulite.
Treatment for cellulite depends on the severity of the condition and the patient's aesthetic goals. This may include traditional weight loss, dietary supplements, laser or light therapies, massage therapy, mesotherapy and liposuction. Your doctor will decide which type of treatment is most appropriate in order to restore smooth, beautiful skin and help patients regain their self-confidence.
