AUTOIMMUNITY

Autoimmune diseases can cause the body to react in many different ways. An autoimmune disease causes a person's immune system to attack the body's own tissues and organs. Because the skin is the body's largest organ, it is commonly affected by certain autoimmune disorders.

At our center, our dermatology team is experienced in diagnosing and treating skin-related autoimmune disorders and diseases. We use a variety of both topical and oral prescription medications, along with other therapies, to help each patient achieve and maintain clear skin.

Conditions we treat include :
