Athlete's foot (tinea pedis) is a fungal infection that usually begins between the toes. Signs and symptoms of athlete's foot include a scaly rash that usually causes itching, stinging and burning. Athlete's foot is contagious and can be spread via contaminated floors, towels or clothing. If you have a rash on your foot that doesn't improve within two weeks of beginning self-treatment with an over-the-counter antifungal product, schedule a consultation at Sperling Dermatology in New Jersey.
Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) is a common viral infection that causes cold sores around the lips or mouth or on the genital region but can occur anywhere on the skin.

Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes red, itchy skin. It is important to learn how to care for your skin to prevent recurrences.
Folliculitis, where hair folliculitis becomes enflamed, is a common condition. It may appear as small red bumps or pimples with whiteheads surrounding the hair follicle. Folliculitis is usually caused by a fungal or bacterial infection. Though not life-threatening, the condition is sore, itchy and can be embarrassing. It is possible that severe infections can cause scarring or permanent loss of hair in the affected area. If the infection spreads or turns in crusty sores, or does not heal, seek consultation for a proper medical examination.
There are many types of fungal infections. Ringworm, or tinea corporis, can occur anywhere on the body and presents as a ring-shaped rash.

Molluscum Contagiosum (MC) presents as bumps on the skin that are painless, but contagious. They are more frequent in children but can be seen in adults and immunocompromised people as well. They spread easily from direct contact with the virus or through contact with an object that has been infected with the virus. Schedule your appointment today at Sperling Dermatology to treat your molluscum contagiosum.
Shingles, also known as Herpes Zoster, is a viral infection caused by the same virus that causes Chickenpox. Shingles occur when the virus that lays dormant in nerves gets reactivated. It presents as painful, red blisters along with the distribution of the nerve underlying, that eventually crust over. It is important to treat Shingles in a timely fashion to prevent the occurrence of postherpetic neuralgia, which is a painful nerve pain that can persist for sometime after. There is an FDA- approved vaccine to prevent Shingles. Schedule your appointment at Sperling Dermatology for treatment if Shingles is suspected.
Warts are benign skin growths caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV). They enter the skin when there is a scrape or cut on your skin. It is a contagious growth that is more common in children but can occur in adults too. Sometimes they disappear on their own, but warts can be treated with a variety of modalities. At Sperling Dermatology, warts are treated with liquid nitrogen, Monochloracetic Acid, Aldara, Cantharone Plus, or Candida Antigen. Schedule your appointment today to treat your warts.
