Sixty-five percent of men have noticeable hair loss by age 60, and 35 million men in the United States experience hair loss, while it affects 21 million women. Hair loss sufferers can expect to lose an average of 100 hairs per day.

Written by Alisa Baker, PA-C on Jun 12, 2017 10:22:07 AM

Men typically take the spartan approach when it comes to skincare – a bare-bones routine that involves splashing their faces with some water and drying it off. For some, there may even be a bar of hand soap involved. (Terrible! Please don’t do this!)

And that can lead to skin cancer – the most common type of cancer in the world. In fact, about 5.4 million squamous and basal cell cancers in about 3.3 million Americans are diagnosed each year. While alarming, there is some good news. As the rate of different types of cancers increases, our technology and science rises to meet the demand for treatment.

When to See Your Dermatologist about Pruritus

Written by John Griffin, M.D., F.A.A.D. on Oct 12, 2016 8:22:00 AM

Pruritus might be a funny sounding word, but those diagnosed with it might not feel the humor. Pronounced pru-ri-tus, it refers to severe itching of the skin. Pruritus can affect anyone for different reasons. It can be mild or severe. It can occur once or it can be an ongoing battle. Millions of people are affected by varying degrees of pruritus each year. A recent study of adult patients in a primary care clinic found that nearly one-third of patients are affected to some degree at any one time. Knowing a little about the condition can help you through it if you’ve been dealing with itchy skin.
