Subungual melanoma, also known as nail melanoma, is a type of skin cancer that develops beneath the surface of the nail and appears as a brown or black streak. Men and women are at equal risk, and the risk increases after age 50.

Like other forms of melanoma that typically surface on skin, nail melanoma can spread to other parts of the body, including organs and lymph nodes — and it can be deadly. See a certified dermatologist as soon as possible if you notice potential signs of nail melanoma.

Nails are a reflection of our overall health. When something is wrong, one visible clue is nail discolouration. Healthy nails have a pinkish hue and are evenly coloured. Abnormal colouring varies depending on the cause, problems affecting the nails could signify a health condition somewhere else in the body. Consult a certified dermatologist to examine any nail abnormalities.

#TBT Video: Certified #dermatologist Dr Julia Carroll discusses the effects of #rosacea. Rosacea affects more than 3 million people in Canada. It is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that results in facial redness and flushing. There is no single cause of rosacea, and it may be different for every individual.

Unfortunately, rosacea does not resolve on its own, and untreated rosacea can worsen over time. Unlike acne, self-treating with over-the-counter products may not help, and may even irritate skin more — causing more redness and bumps. Consult a certified dermatologist for appropriate treatment options.

Nail fungal infections are the result of the same fungi that cause athlete’s foot, jock itch and ringworm. It is important to treat them as they can lead to other skin and body infections. They can also permanently damage affected nails, and potentially lead to paronychia (a type of skin infection that occurs around nails).

Consult a physician or a certified dermatologist for appropriate treatment options.

Have brittle nails? Try these tips to strengthen your nails: wear rubber gloves when washing dishes, give nails a break from nail polish and moisturize your nails regularly.

Filing can also help by smoothing out ragged nails to prevent further damage. Just be sure to use a non-metal file and buff nails in the direction of nail growth only to prevent further splitting.

If it persists, consult a certified dermatologist; dermatologists aren’t just experts in skin, but hair and nails too!

Is there a dermatologist that does NOT due cosmetic procedures in South Western Ontario? My doctor referred me back in July to a dermatologist in Windsor, and I have yet to get a phone call to arrange an appointment. My doctor says if i was doing lip injections or some other cosmetic procedure i would have an appointment within a week. I have been suffering with a rash (fungal) on my hands that has severely impacted my life, and I can't get a doctor to look at it. My own doctor has tried everything he knows and therefore he referred when all else fails. Why can i not see a doctor. I have suffered for over a year now!! If anyone knows a doctor between Windsor and London who does not do cosmetic procedures and actually takes OHIP patients i would be thrilled to hear about them!!
