What are common skin conditions?

Dermatologists diagnose and treat over 3,000 skin, hair, and nail disorders. Most of these affect the skin, with some being particularly widespread.

The experienced Idaho Skin Surgery Center team accurately diagnoses and effectively treats common skin conditions. They are also experts in managing unusual and complex skin disorders.

Common skin conditions include:


Warts develop when a viral infection creates small patches of hardened skin. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most likely cause, triggering plantar (foot) warts, genital warts, and hand warts.



Acne is a widespread condition that can affect anyone; however, it’s more common in adolescents. It causes multiple, painful red pimples that often affect the face and sometimes the body. Severe acne can leave pits and scars long after the condition improves.


Moles (nevi)

Moles are usually round with a sharply defined border and uniform color. They may be flat or raised. They should always be monitored to ensure their character and coloring remain stable.



Also known as liver spots, letigines are benign lesions that occur on the sun-exposed areas of the body. 



Hemangiomas are common, benign (not-cancer) growths made of extra blood vessels in the skin.


Seborrheic Keratoses

A very common, benign, skin growth that resembles a wart.

Eczema is a long-term disorder often developing in childhood. It causes itchy, red, flaky, and/or scaly skin patches.

Skin cancer

The more common skin cancers are basal and squamous cell carcinomas, which are typically slow-growing. Melanoma is a more aggressive, dangerous skin cancer, sometimes developing from pre-existing moles.
