Dermatology is a branch of medicine dealing with diverse diseases of the skin and its attachments including nails, hair and sweat glands; the mucous membrane and a number of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases).

These disorders include warts, acne, skin cancers, multiple inflammatory dermatoses, occupational dermatoses, autoimmune diseases and contact dermatitis. The treatment varies from surgical procedures (sclerotherapy, excisions, hair transplants, liposuction, tissue augmentation therapies, and laser surgery), therapy for photoaging skin and prevention of diseases and cancers of the skin.

A dermatologist is a medical doctor who practices dermatology. There are several aspects to the specialty.

Dermasurgery covers skin cancer surgery, photodynamic therapy, laser surgery, liposuction, sclerotherapy, and cosmetic procedures using botulinum toxin or botox. Dermatopathology is a sub-specialty of anatomical pathology concerning skin diseases. Immunodermatology is the study of the skin as an agent of immunity in health and disease. A number of areas have special focus, such as inflammatory diseases (atopic eczema and allergic contact dermatitis), photo-immunology (effects of UV on skin defense), the immunology of microbial skin diseases (leprosy and retrovirus infections) and autoimmune skin diseases such as psoriasis and vitiligo. baby eczema

Hello,
       It can be due to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or erythrasma. Erythrasma is a chronic superficial infection of the intertriginous areas of the skin. It is true that groins are effected but the typical appearance is well-demarcated, brown-red macular patches. The skin has a wrinkled appearance with fine scales.

It has to be differentiated from contact dermatitis, psoriasis, sweat dermatitis and fungal infections which may mimic it. Wood lamp examination and gram staining are the tests for its diagnosis.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Thanks

Scleroterapy is the most common treatment for this varicose veins problem. I underwent this kind of treatment for my varicose veins and it worked like a charm. I suggest anyone who have the same problem should invest on this treatment if they really want to get rid of the unwanted veins.
