Contact dermatitis is most often identified by large, itchy patches or open sores that burn. It does not fade quickly and can last longer than other more minor skin irritations.

Skin Cancer Screening
At Carroll Dermatology Surgery and Laser Institute, we are very committed to detecting and preventing skin cancer. We recommend annual skin cancer screenings that are full-body visual inspections done by Dr. Carroll. The exams are painless, no blood is drawn, and take approximately 30 minutes in most cases.
Skin infections such as athlete’s foot, ringworm or viral infections such as herpes can lead to other more serious conditions. Dr. Carroll offers the best medical treatments to fight the infections and return your skin to its healthy state.
Most skin growths may not require medical attention; however, it can be difficult for someone other than your dermatologist to tell whether a growth requires attention and treatment. If you notice a skin growth, it’s best to make an appointment with Dr. Carroll to have it evaluated.
Warts can occur on any part of the body, although they are usually seen on the hands and feet. The benign growth is small, hard and caused by a virus. Warts can be successfully treated and removed by Dr. Carroll.
