Other Skin Conditions
Mount Sinai has expertise in diagnosing and treating a wide variety of skin conditions. In addition to the most common conditions—acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and skin cancer—we also treat a wide variety of others.
- Bullous diseases cause fluid-filled blisters. We treat a broad spectrum of these diseases, such as pemphigus vulgaris, bullous pemphigoid, and dermatitis herpetiformis. We offer the latest in biologic therapy, including Rituxan® (rituximab) and intravenous immune globulins (IVIg), as well as a wide range of other options, such as mycophenolate mofetil, azathioprine, methotrexate, prednisone, and dapsone.
- Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating, especially in the armpits. Hyperhidrosis can occur not only in the armpits, but also on hands and/or feet, and even all over your body. It can make you feel uncomfortable, embarrassed, and self-conscious. We can treat both generalized and localized hyperhidrosis. We offer a variety of treatments, including topical or oral medications, BOTOX® injections, a new medical device called miraDry®, and surgical procedures.
- Sexually transmitted diseases are often not considered primarily dermatological, but can affect the skin. The human papillomavirus (HPV) is associated with genital warts and is easily transmitted. Molluscum, another viral infection often spread through sexual contact, is also highly contagious and causes changes to the skin. Molluscum is also very common among children; children spread this condition by normal day-to-day contact, not sexual contact. We treat both HPV and Molluscum with excision and topical treatments.
