Skin, Hair and Nail Problems

Skin Rashes
The majority of skin rashes and skin lesions are treated by GPs, without the need to see a specialist doctor. However, a private dermatology appointment is useful where there is difficulty in making the diagnosis, or if the skin complaint is not responding satisfactorily to treatment.

Dr Anne Ward has over 25 years’ experience in treating all types of skin, hair and nail problems in both adults and children. Appointments can be easily booked by phoning the clinic, and a short waiting time means that treatment can be started quickly, before the problem gets out of control.

Allergy Testing
Allergies can affect the skin in several ways, ranging from Urticaria with widespread itchy wheals and hives to patches of dry scaling skin or a flare up of Atopic Eczema. Lichfield Skincare can test for possible Skin Allergies, using Patch Testing and Blood Tests. Dr Anne Ward is a member of the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI).

Patch Tests
Patch Testing is used to investigate whether eczema or skin rashes are allergic in nature. This is called Allergic Contact Dermatitis and is more common where the eczema or skin rash doesn’t respond properly to treatment, if it develops suddenly, or if it affects unusual places. It is also recommended for people with chronic hand eczema.

Patch Testing involves 3 visits to the clinic in one week (e.g. Monday, Wednesday, Friday). At the first visit, Patch Tests are taped on to the back and left on for 48 hours. The skin is examined when the Patch Tests are removed and again at the third visit. A positive reaction shows up as an itchy red reaction.
