The skin is the largest organ of the body, the primary exterior feature that defines a person’s look and appearance. Because the skin is on the outside of the body, it is more susceptible to growths, discolorations and disease, which can affect a person’s mental and physical well-being. Exposed to the environment, the skin is vulnerable to infections, cysts, burns and more.
Dermatology, or the study of skin diseases and conditions, focuses on the treatment of disorders related to the skin, hair and nails. Located on the third floor of the Eskenazi Health Outpatient Care Center, Eskenazi Health Dermatology offers comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment of skin diseases. Services focus on full medical dermatology diagnosis and treatment for such skin conditions as acne, melanoma and fungal infections.
