What Are Skin Conditions?
Skin conditions are common and often minor health concerns that can impact your health and comfort. They may appear anywhere on your face or body and occur as singular growths, like a mole, or cover larger areas of your skin, such as acne. Since skin conditions are often considered by patients to be unattractive, and at times irritating and even painful, our family physicians and team offer skilled care for treating a vast array of skin problems. Whether you have a skin lesion that looks suspicious, suffer from a rash or acne breakout, or have other dermatological concerns, please contact Horizon Medical Center in Schaumburg, IL to arrange an in-office appointment with our caring medical team.

Types of Skin Concerns
Skin conditions generally involve any area that looks or feels different from the surrounding tissue and may cause symptoms, like burning, itching, or discomfort, or be completely asymptomatic. At Horizon Medical Center, our skilled physicians have years of experience treating a wide range of skin conditions, including:
- Warts and moles
- Hives and rashes
- Skin lesions or growths
- Melasma and other hyperpigmentation
- Infections and other types of skin concerns
How Are Skin Problems Treated?
Treatments for acne, dermatitis, hives, and other skin concerns will vary according to severity and cause. Our physicians may recommend over-the-counter or prescription topical ointments or oral medications to treat the source of skin conditions and manage your symptoms. In some cases, laser therapies may be used in the treatment of skin problems to trigger the body's natural healing response or destroy disease-causing bacteria on the skin. Warts, moles, and other types of skin growths may be removed by one of our practitioners through a minor in-office surgical procedure. Lifestyle changes may also be suggested to increase your comfort and protect the integrity of your skin.
