A wart may be bumpy with a rough surface, or it may be flat and smooth. Although Warts are not cancerous, Wart viruses are contagious and can spread by contact with the wart or something that touched it.

The treatment used depends on the patient’s age and health as well as the type of the wart.

Moles/Birthmarks & other skin lesions


If you are born with a mole, it is considered a birthmark. People often call these birthmarks “beauty marks.” But not all moles are birthmarks. Moles are a common type of skin growth formed when skin cells grow in a cluster formation instead of being spread throughout the skin. Moles generally appear during childhood and adolescence and they range in color from pink to light brown or black. They also vary in size and may be flat or raised. Most moles are harmless but some may become cancerous. Monitoring moles and other pigmented patches is an important step in early skin cancer detection, especially malignant melanoma.


Birthmarks are colored marks on the skin that are present at birth or soon afterwards. There are two main types of birthmarks “Vascular birthmarks” that happen when blood vessels don’t form correctly and “Pigmented birthmarks” that are caused by an overgrowth of the cells that create pigment in skin (melanocytes). Both types have different causes. Most birthmarks are harmless and do not need treatment, but some can indicate an underlying medical condition and may need treatment because of their location, this is why it’s important to get a birthmark checked if you’re
worried about it

Management and Treatment:

If you want a mole/birthmark removed for a medical or cosmetic reason, our expert dermatologists at Al Mahmoud Medical Center will evaluate your case and advise you on either of the following possibilities:
– Medication: to reduce blood flow to the birthmark, that can slow down its growth and make it lighter in color
– Laser therapy: where heat and light are used to make the birthmark smaller and lighter

Skin infections

Your Skin health is a major part of your overall health!

Your skin is the largest organ of your body and it is your first line of defense against infection as the many layers of skin provide different types of protection. However, sometimes the skin itself becomes infected. These Infections are caused by a wide variety of germs but usually come from one of three main causes: bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Yeasts and parasites can cause them, too. Some infections involve just the skin, and others also involve the soft tissues under the skin.

How does skin infection take place?

A small cut in your skin is all it takes for a microorganism to invade and enter into your skin. Often this is how a skin infection takes root. Sometimes a cut in the skin isn’t the main cause, As the weakness of your immune system or misdirection into attacking the wrong things gives this microorganism the upper hand to start invading causing the skin infections to be more complex.
Relatively minor infections include Carbuncles, Eczema , Erythrasma, Folliculitis, Furuncles. More serious bacterial skin and skin structure infections can include Necrotizing skin infections, Wound infections, Cellulitis, Erysipelas, Lymphangitis, , …etc.

Treatment/ Management

Skin infection symptoms can vary from mild to serious, symptoms also vary depending on the type. Common symptoms include redness and a rash. You may also experience other symptoms, such as itching, pain, and tenderness. A good medical exam is the best way to determine what exactly is causing your skin infection. Our expert dermatologists at Al Mahmoud Medical Center can identify the type of skin infection based on the appearance and location. In other cases, a sample of skin cells will be needed to determine the type of infection.

Sun Damage and Precancerous Lesions

Are you a morning person that adores the sunlight!

Although most of us love the light and warmth of the sun, excessive sun exposure over years has a profound effect on our skin and can significantly damage it.

Its true sunlight stimulates vitamin D production which causes a sense of well-being and helps control some chronic skin diseases such as psoriasis but the excessive subjection to sun’s heat dries out unprotected skin areas and depletes the skin’s supply of natural lubricating oils that can cause even more threatening effects like actinic keratosis and early subjection to skin cancer.


There is a lot of sunburn signs and symptoms that can include, Changes in skin tone, such as pinkness or redness, skin that feels warm or hot to the touch, pain and tenderness, swelling, small fluid -filled blisters- which may break, headache, fever, nausea and fatigue-if the sun burn is severe-, eyes that feel painful or gritty and others..

Management and Treatment
