Psoriasis, Vitiligo & Eczema

Dr Habib is dedicated to finding the most advanced treatments and helping people with problems that concern them and hinder their everyday lives.

Psoriasis affects 1-3% of the population and may start at any age. It is a chronic inflammatory skin condition now known to be due to genetic factors. It causes pink or red raised scaly patches on the skin with a well-defined border. It is not contagious. It is usually chronic and unfortunately relapses can be expected.

Eczema is characterised by itchy patches of dry, red skin which sometimes appear scaly or crusty. The condition can be irritating, uncomfortable, and stress-inducing and in the acute phase small, water-filled blisters may be seen. Later dry scaling occurs.

Vitiligo is a condition in which there is loss of melanin pigment in the skin. It presents as white patches surrounded by normal coloured skin. Areas of de-pigmentation tend to be symmetrical.

Conditions such as Psoriasis, Eczema and Vitiligo can badly affect people’s lives and Dr Habib has studied the conditions and sought out the most effective treatments to combat the problems patients may face.
