Treating Dermatology Conditions

2 Minute Read

At Paragon, we work with dermatologists from all over the nation to treat dermatologic conditions. A dermatologist is a doctor that specializes in the study of the skin. They diagnose and manage skin, hair, and nail disorders. There are many types of skin diseases ranging from eczema to skin cancer. 

Paragon provides the most advanced specialty medications to treat dermatologic conditions. We specialize in injectable and infusible drugs to offer our patients the best therapeutic option suited for them. The most commonly diagnosed dermatologic conditions include eczema, atopic dermatitis, plaque psoriasis, and psoriatic arthritis. The medications we offer may be self-administered in the comfort of your own home or may require a healthcare provider to administer it for you at one of our infusion centers.  

 

Common Dermatologic Conditions We Treat: 

  • Psoriasis – A skin disease that causes red, itchy, and scaly patches, most commonly on the knees, elbows, scalp, and torso. It develops when the body makes skin cells too quickly, causing visible patches to form.
  • Atopic dermatitis (AD) – Is the most common type of eczema, which causes the skin to become dry, red, and itchy. It presents in the form of dry and scaly patches on the surface, and it most commonly affects the arms, legs, and face but can occur anywhere on the body. 
  • Psoriatic Arthritis – A type of arthritis that affects the joints (causing joint pain, stiffness, and swelling) along with the skin disease psoriasis (which causes red, itchy, scaly patches of skin). 

 

Each person's experience with a dermatologic condition is different. Every patient faces different challenges and presents with different symptoms. Paragon's goal is to provide our patients with the best therapeutic option to relieve their symptoms, overcome their challenges, prevent disease progression, and help them adhere to their dermatologist's treatment plan.
